So I hate to say it, but I think Clay blew Reub away in Round One. Thoughts? Opinions? Ouija Board predictions?

UPDATE: Notice LENNON went first!

Hey boy take a look at me...let me dirty up your mind...

i hate to agree - but you're right.

i want ruben to win!

Well, I've been watching every time I get the chance (not much else worth watching on), and I've liked Clay since the start. He doesn't *look* like the pop star, but his sound is all there!

I can't pick!!!

I love Clay's voice. reuben is nice but Clay just has it vocally. Reuben is all baratone and seems to be in that vandross style all the time but Clay can switch styles. I hope he wins.
Love the new look BTW. love it. :)

I love Clay, but then again, I like Barry Manilow, too. Wait. Aren't they the same person?

Yep. Reuben seemed decidedly off tonight. Normally he's pretty good and has a very smooth sound, but I think that Clay seems to have more oompf when it comes to performing. Plus he's got that geeky cuteness to him that I just find adorable :)

I want Clay to win, to me Ruben always sounds clumsy in his singing.

I missed the first songs by both tonight but I think Rueben took the second set! I loved the song he chose...he's gonna take it!

As usual, I think Clay over-sang his songs. Ruben's my pick for tomorrow.

if i were basing it on tonight only, Clay won hands down. but if it's on all the performances so far i gotta go with Ruben.

only 90 minutes left to vote here on the west coast and i still can't decide!

Dear Clay,

Please give it up, put your "technicolor dreamcoat" back on, and move back to whereever that accent came from ...

(I can't be the only person here with annoying theatrical gaydar on ... can I?)

Even though I don't like "Idol," I will have to say I'd vote for Clay. I've met him (and his entire family) in person and he's a really nice guy.
And, yes, he has an accent but who cares? He's from the south-- get over it. And even though he keeps a lot of close women friends, I seriously doubt he is gay.

I'm Sunshine. I'm 31. And I'm an AI addict.

["Hi, Sunshine." from the AI 12-step program.]

I think they're both wonderful, and my loyalties are divided. Ruben has a wonderful voice and an innocent, unpretentious manner. Clay has a wonderful voice and a boyish, entertaining charm. Last night, Clay pulled out all the stops.

Incidentally, I do suspect that Clay is gay, and I don't see anything wrong with that.

Hey, did anyone else notice this: Whenever Clay is performing, he looks so thin and kind of waifish. Standing next to Ryan last night, though, he's pretty tall and moderately built. Definitely not scrawny.

And, dammit, I won't be home tonight to watch the conclusion so I have to tape it.

I agree, I got chills when Clay sang that first song. I like them both! They both are so talented and seem like genuinely nice guys.
