    Thanks for posting this! I have watched it a couple of times already. haha! I have liked Blake from the very beginning. I think he kicked some arse last night!

    Thank you, thank you! I could listen to that several times a day. He just may win the whole competition.

    Woah, that was badass! I had no idea American Idol let them do things like that…

    Sorry…hated it!

    This competition is about taking risks, showing your diversity musically as well as being entertaining. Blake has been adept on all accounts and this was no exception.

    Love it, Love it, Love it!!!!

    Blake BROUGHT DOWN THE HOUSE LAST NIGHT! I was actually up dancing.

    If he remade that song, it would be a HUGE HIT…I can totally see myself in the club and running to the dance floor as soon as that song comes on. I would totally buy his version. That was the best, most orginal and JAMMINGEST (a new word) performance of all of them this whole season. I hope they’re smart and let him release it.

    Anyone else notice little Abagail Breslin in the front row? So cute!

    I could see people hating this (especially older people), but I loved it. It was so original and refreshing to see, especially in a competition that can be so repetitive at times. The fiance even liked it and he’s never been a Blake fan. Actually, he doesn’t even like AI really (only the bad auditions). He did say, though, that Blake’s performance was probably his favorite over the last couple of years 🙂

    I’ve watched this about 40 times on my tvio, but OK I’LL WATCH AGAIN!!! 🙂

    I love him!

  12. LT on May 2nd, 2007 3:19 pm

    Who’s Abagail Breslin?

  13. Philiana on May 2nd, 2007 4:36 pm

    Wow. I don’t really watch AI. I just go on the site to see who is eliminated but shit, that was amazing.

    LT – Abagail Breslin is the little girl that played in Little Miss Sunshine with along with Greg Kinear and Steve Carell. Maybe you heard of the movie, it was nominated for an Academy Award for best picture of the year?

    GMMR – I couldn’t tell for sure that it was her, it looked like her, but who could really tell with all the flashing lights. Did they show her during the show at any other point or mention that she was in the audience. She’s so adorable.

Plus his new look works for him although I did not have any complaints before.

    […] to talk about on who’s left at American Noodle. The buzz is alive and well with Blake and his version of Bon Jovi’s piece “You Give Love a Bad Name,” seen last week. But some folks […]

    I love that song! Now it’s on my Ipod.

  24. ben on May 16th, 2007 8:29 am

    I thought that was awsome. Blake has really amazed me so far with his own ways of singing and re writing songs and adding his thing in to them and I would say that this was one of his BEST songs so far, and I could see him going far!! GOOD LUCK BLAKE!

    loved the duel with the drummer!! that was INSANE

  25. sweet stuff on June 4th, 2007 2:33 pm

    omg i loved you win you sang that song!!!!
    i loved it
    i loved it

  26. loveblake on June 14th, 2007 11:40 pm

    I loved his version. I want you all to know that there are quite a few of us “older” folks (old enough to be his mother) who love Blake. Heck, he brings life to some of these older songs. I listen to his stuff over and over and I never listen to music–now all I listen to is Blake’s songs. I would listen to the original artists and then Blake’s version and I like his better. So listen up–it’s now just teenage girls out there who voted for him. This grandma usually voted 2 hours straight for him. When he sang this song I was screaming!!!!!!!!!

    i think the Drummer was more’s what makes Blake looked great, without the collaboration with the drummer, blake was standard, however the creativity is awesome,that i admit…keep on movin’ blake..
