Episodes on 2/14 & 2/15.  
I'm glad to see so many new faces! Welcome. Please read the rules on the info page and then jump right in!

I wanted to share with you a little snippet concerning Take Five, a song that Paris sang at her first audition. According to a comment on this thread, Billie Holiday (whom Paris mentioned before she sang the song) never recorded Take Five. And the Wikipedia on Paris says that the instrumental version was recorded the year Billie Holiday died, so she couldn't have. I did find one interesting thing, however. On the iTunes music store I stumbled across an album called "If Only...Billie Unsung" by Thomasina, containing Take Five, and other songs sung by Billie Holiday. Did she sing it, did she not? Ah, who cares. :) Paris did, and beautifully so.
I posted the original instrumental version of the song in an earlier post, but if you would like a vocal version of the song, the Thomasina version is available for purchase on iTunes. If you don't have iTunes, and are curious...it is listed here on Amazon.com. Not currently available for purchase, but the track listing is there. Also, the lyrics to Take Five can be found here.

I'd like to ask that we keep any spoilers under a cut until Friday. This means anything about anything that happened on Tuesday or Wednesday MUST be under a cut until Friday of that week. This applies to any spoilery text within the comm itself. Links to spoilery info do not need to be cut- but they DO need a warning.
If you're unsure of how to lj cut, I've linked to the FAQ in the user info, or please ask and I'll be happy to help you. :) I'd like to do this because I'm one of those anal people who HATES it when people tell me what happened- I'd rather just watch it myself. And I know I'm not the only one, so my anal friends...this is for you. If you haven't seen an episode for some reason...be aware that this community may contain spoilers after Friday of that week's episode.

And now...

She made it to the top 12! Yaaaaaay! Though we all knew she would. I see her going very far in this competition.
First of all, I flat out think she's the best. DEFINITELY the best of the women, in my opinion, and I see only one or two men that may give her some competition.
And second, from what I've read on the internet so far, she seems to have a lot of support.

What do you all think?

I also wanted to share with you...
