Yeah, the women didn't shine tonight and I was surprised at some of the mediocore songs they selected. And some of the good songs were songs that features harmonies and guitars like "Wayword Son". Amanda kind of butchered that song.

I am going way out on a limb and predict that the last woman standing will be someone who wasn't even on L Williams's list of the top 6. I think it will be Kristie of Selma Oregon. She was awful last week but she was also on 5 different antibiotics and as sick as a wet cat in a snowstorm. This week was not a stellar performance either but she will get stronger. The main thing she has to learn is to do is to stop strutting around like a diva and act like herself- the tomboy from the farm. Even Simon, who I am sure hated country music until the success of Carrie Underwood started putting money in his pocket, suggested that she pick country songs. She could be as big as Underwood if she will just, in the words of Buck Owens, "Act Naturally".
