Fantasy Idol week 5 results/week 6

First on an administrative note. I am going to try something a bit different from now on. The scoring will be the same. However, each week I will just update THIS post instead of creating another entire one. Please continue to put your picks in the comments of this post until the end of the season. That said. If you haven't watched the show(and plan to later) stop reading now or else I will give it away.

In week 7, the bottom 3 were Sanjaya,Blake, and Lakisha. Sanjaya finally freakin managed to sing bad enough to get even HIM sent home. Now the show seems like it will be legitimate again. Better late than never. Pretty much everyone correctly predicted this. How many other than ME did so because they figured if they kept picking him they HAD to be right eventually I do not know. High score for the week was put up by yours truly (thanks mostly to the Ultimate Idol points). At the same time(again due mostly to the Ultimate Idol points), I have moved into the overall lead at least temporarily.

Anyways here was the breakdown.

Pre week 7 overall scores
Suz:1040
Gypsy:1030

Ultimate Idol:

Gypsy:Mel(6wks)=320
Me:Jordin(7wks)=640
SWF:Mel(5wks)=160
Michael: Ineligible for points in this category but picks Mel(for the 2nd week)


week 7 scores:
Suz: 460
Me: 910

SWF: 470
Michael: DNP

Post week 7 overall standings:

Bottom Three - Haley, Sanjaya, Gina

Staying - Phil, Lakeesha, Melinda, Chris, Blake

New Idol Pick - Melinda

SWF41 said...

Is anyone else thinking this season is getting a little boring? Or is it just me? Other than all the attention on Sanjaya, I'm just not feeling any real excitement over any one particular singer.

Bottom 3:
Haley

I score better on your game, BD, but it's too late to make my other friends play your way. ;) hehe

christine said...

swf, the entire season has been boring! This is the lousiest season of AI ever, I don;t find myself rushing home to catch it like I always used to do in the past. It's one big YAWN! :( Hopefully, the next seasons pick up once again.

So these are my votes:

To move on: Blake, Chris R, Lakisha, Melinda, Jordin, Gina

Bottom 3: Sanjaya (grrr), Phil, Haley

Going: Phil

Ultimate Idol: Melinda

Suz said...

I think America is sick of the votefortheworst keeping the less talented in the game so long too...I personally think they need to limit/change the voting procedure. Sabrina being voted off so early is proof that the whole process needs a revamp.

In other thoughts...how glad are you that you added the post about Gina moving on, BD? :p

Okay last weeks scores are posted. Dont forget to get you picks in this week.

SWF: I couldn't agree more. This is only my second season watching and I have to say I am pretty bored. Had I not started this contest I probably wouldn't even be watching to be honest. That said, at least 3 of them can REALLY sing.

Suz: thanks for pointing out my mistake, doh!

Michael: welcome back!

Sanjaya: Take your arse home already!

BD

briliantdonkey said...

On another note, My GAWD that girl's got legs! I guess if his hair can keep him in it her legs will do the same. This ends the BD drooling segment of this week's comments.

Michael Thomas said...

Phil's going home.

Phil, Haley, Chris bottom three

Staying: Haley, Chris, Sanjaya, Melinda, Lakeesha, Blake

Idol Pick- Melinda (if I can't get points, then I can't lose points if she goes, right?)

SWF41 said...

I didn't get to see the show last night, so I've been watching the YouTube videos. I hope it was a better show live, because frankly, the clipped performances I saw mostly sucked.


Staying

Melinda
Jordin
LaKisha
Blake
Sanjaya
Chris R
Haley

Bottom Three

Phil
Haley
Chris

Going Home

Phil


Still sticking with MindyDoo as the season winner.

briliantdonkey said...

Almost forgot to put my OWN picks in. This weeks show sucked pretty bad.

Staying:Lakeesha,melinda,jordin,Blake,

bottom 3: Sanjaya,Haley,Chris R.

going home:sanjaya,,,,judges comments make all the 'vote for him to screw things up' people relax and take the week off.

Ultimate Idol: Jordin


Good luck all

Suz said...

Wow! A mixed bag of picks this week!! Makes it fun, and I don't hope to hold that lead very long.

Staying:

Bottom 3:
Phil
Sanjaya

Ultimate Idol:
Melinda (but I like Blake best these days)!!

christine said...

Moving on: Melinda, Lakisha, Jordin, Blake, Chris

Bottom 3: Phil, Haley and Sanjaya

Going: Haley

Ultimate Idol: Melinda

SWF41 said...

Wow, my score sheet is beginnning to remind me of my NCAA bracket. First I kick ass, now I'm sucking ass. :-)


It was time for Haley to go, though. I'm not complaining.

SWF41 said...

I'm losing my I heart American Idol vibe.

Everybody's raving about Jordin's version of Broken Wing and I'm thinking - did they actually listen to it? Not impressed, at all. Maybe I'm comparing it too much to Martina's version, I don't know.

Anyway...


Staying

Melinda
Jordin
LaKisha
Blake
Phil
Chris R

Bottom Three

Phil
Sanjaya
Lakisha

Going Home

I'm going to go out on a limb and say I think it's Sanjaya's time. Simon sounded pissed off enough to invoke that "producers have the right to change the outcome of the voting" clause, so I'm betting it's going to happen tonight.


Ultimate Idol - MindyDoo

briliantdonkey said...

My picks:

Moving on: Jordin,Melinda,


Bottom 3:Sanjaya,Lakisha,Chris R.

going home: SANFREAKINGJAYA!

(As an aside--I can 99% guarantee that you won't see Phil in the Bottom Three this week). Watch...

christine said...

Ack! I almost forgot to give my picks.

Moving on: Lakisha, Blake, Melinda, Jordin

Bottom 3: Chris, Sanjaya, ugh I don't know who the 3rd would or should be

Going: Sanjaya! There's no way he can survive this round, enough is enough.

christine said...

Oops, ultimate idol is Melinda still

Suz said...

Damn-not understanding how you were doing the Ultimate Idol early on is starting to hurt me. Oh well. Here's my picks for this week!

Blake

Am I the only one in the world who thinks Jordin was screechy last night? Were my ears were the only ones hurting?

Oh, well.


Staying
MindyDoo
Jordin
Phil
Blake
Chris

Bottom Three
Lakisha
Blake
Chris

C-Ya!!
I'm going way out on a limb here, but I think Lakisha just bought her ticket home. You can almost feel the wind leaving her sails.


Ultimate Idol

Sticking with MindyDoo

briliantdonkey said...

Tough choices this weeek.

Moving on: Melinda,Jordin,

Bottom 3: Lakisha,Chris,Blake


Ultimate Idol: sticking with Jordin

Going home: I think they vote Sanjaya again just to make sure he doesn't accidentally come back!

okay if that wont work I will pick Chris to go home.

good luck all

BD

christine said...

I missed Jordin's performance and only saw half of Phil's because I had to rush out for a dinner date. So I'll have to do this semi-blindly:

Moving on: Melinda, Jordin, Blake

Bottom 3: Phil, Lakisha and Chris

Getting the boot: Phil

Ultimate Idol: Melinda Doooooooooooolittle! :)

Suz said...

Now what, oh briliant one? ;)

briliantdonkey said...

Just finished watching on tivo. As soon as he said 'it will shock you' I had a feeling something was up. That SUCKED. I GET it but it still sucked. Okay this week no points for anyone. TWO go home next week. 150 points(each) for picking who goes home. 200 bonus points on TOP of that for picking BOTH correctly. Unless there are any objections to this(by all means let me know if there are) that is how we shall handle it.

BD

SWF41 said...

So, Oh Mighty One, do you want 2 new choices for the ones getting kicked off, or are you keeping this week's picks and then we add in our additional boot-ee?

I'm so confused!!

(I say, bring Sanjaya back and give us a freebie!)

:-D

briliantdonkey said...

"Oh briliant one"? "Oh mighty one"??? I choose to ignore the possible sarcasm included in these comments and commence with getting a big head thank you very much.

Seriously, just act like last week never happened. Submit two new picks to go home and we will go from there. SWF: Sanjaya IS coming back didn't you hear?

BD

christine said...

Wow, talk about emotional roller coaster! laughing (at ben stiller),,,cringing (at jack black),,,swooning (il divo and david schwimmer - ahhshaddap!),,,crying (during everything else). I'm so drained I'm going to bed.

BTW, I'm cool with that, BD! Thanks for doing this.

briliantdonkey said...

In the words of scooby doo,,,,,rut roh raggy! My ultimate Idol may be going home this week. Clearly one of the worst for her so far to me at least. The judges raved about Blake but frankly I thought he sucked. The beat bop parts and the parts he changed surpisingly worked for me but the actual song parts sounded like shit. Maybe that was just me though apparently.

Anyways:

Moving on: Lakeesha(shes back),Melinda,

bottom 3: Chris,Blake,Jordin

Going home: Chris, Blake

Ult.Idol: sticking with Jordin.

and that is my final answer .....till I change it

BD

SWF41 said...

You know we have to search for this post now, right? I think that's mean of you, Oh Mighty One. Can't you use your omnipotence to move it up to the main page or something?

(And while you're using that omnipotence thing, how about some world peace so the beauty queens will shut up?)

*ahem*

Staying

Melinda
Jordin
Blake
Phil

Leaving
Chris
Lakisha

If they do a bottom three tonight, I'll add Jordin to my bottom three. I don't think she's in danger of going home, but I think she was bad last night, which might affect her votes.

Ultimate: MindyDoo.

Suz said...

My other post is not showing up yet! :o (It's been hours since I posted it).

In case it doesn't....

Staying:
Blake
Jordin
Melinda

Going Home:
Chris
Lakisha

Bottom Three:
Chris
Lakisha
Phil

UI: Melinda

If it shows up, delete one, BD. ;)

christine said...

Bottom 3: Phil, Chris, Jordin

Going: Phil & Chris

Moving on: Lakisha, Melinda, Blake

Ultimate Idol: Melinda

SWF41 said...

I don't think they'll do a bottom three anymore, so my picks are changing accordingly.

staying

Melinda
Jordon
Blake

leaving

Lakisha

bottom two

Jordin and Lakisha

ultimate

Mindy Doo

briliantdonkey said...

Short but sweet so I can get to work. I doubt they do the bottom three anymore either. Therefore effective immediately we will give 50 points per correct pick to go home to kind of make up for that.

Staying: Blake,Jordin, Melinda

going: Lakisha(toss up with her or blake)

Ult: sticking with Jordin


Good luck all

Suz said...

Staying: Jordin, Blake, Melinda

Going: Lakisha

UI: Melinda

briliantdonkey said...

Sorry for not updating the scores in quite some time. Most of the picks have been the same so not much has changed. I will do it after this weeks results come out tomorrow. I am also considering doing another scoring(back dated) to change the ultimate idol points from the way they are now to 100 points x the number of weeks for that pick as opposed to doubling the points each week which to me seems to be a bit excessive even if it is benefitting me.

On another note: As requested I DID make this post easier to find(better late than almost never). I have added it under the "favorite posts" section of my sidebar.

Now for my picks for the week. Wow tough to pick as it seems to be anyones game at this point. I will go with

Blake leaving

staying:Jordin,Mel,

UI: sticking with Jordin.


Good luck all.

BD

SWF41 said...

I'm bringing out my big brass ones and throwing it down this week.

Jordin is going home. There....I said it.

The final will be Blake and Melinda, with MindyDoo taking it all.

Please...no clapping. Bowing as you leave my presence is sufficient.

Suz said...

Wow! Are we twins, SWF41?? (I'm also a SWF41)!!

I've been struggling with this one all day long...and the allergy medication is not helping me get a clear thought on the results, but I have to say, I'm with you. I'm not going all (brass) balls to the walls though...wimping a little.

Staying:
Melinda
Going:
Jordin
Ultimate Idol:
Melinda

Ugh. I want it to be over! :p

Now score us, dammit, BD!!!

christine said...

Yikes! This one is hard, I did manage to watch it but am so torn.

I'm quite positive Melinda and Blake are staying so It'll have to be Jordin for me as well. UI is still Melinda.

briliantdonkey said...

wow is pretty much all I can say. Not sure the best one didnt just get sent home. Definitely one of the top two in my mind. I just wish I were playing with male competitors so I could say 'take that bitches' without feeling bad about it. Sorry, been hanging around the teenagers at work too much I guess.

BD

Suz said...

Gaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwd!!!!! You are so s-l-o-w!!!!!!!! Remind me not to sign up next year.... :rolleyes:

Suz said...

Ignore that last comment. The Malibu made me say it! ;)

SWF41 said...

I'm still heartbroken over MindyDoo being sent home.

So -- I'm voting for Blake to win it all. Jordin's little-girl-cutesy gets on my nerves.

So there.

briliantdonkey said...

No reason to change now so I will stick with Jordin. As for last night's show my take on it.

Round 1: I still say Blake butchers the Bon jovi song. GREAT beat boxing parts(even though that really isn't my thing).His singing of the normal parts though? To me he kills it. Then again to be fair I appear to be well in the minority. With that in mind I will give Round 1 to Blake.

Round 2: Was pretty Even to me but I would give a slight edge to Jordin.

Round 3: Hands down went to Jordin by leaps and bounds. In fairness, it was a song that fit her totally, and a HORRIBLE song 'fit wise' for Blake.

BD

Suz said...

Jordin wins. I'm pissed about it, but that's the way it goes down tonight.
