3:54 [Comment From coconutghost]

3:54 [Comment From OHMYHECK]
MELINDA WHO WAS YOUR FAVORITE(S) THIS SEASON?
3:54 melinda doolittle: I'm singing mainly songs from my CD and then a couple from Idol that are my favorites
3:54 [Comment From heartlest]
MATT GIRAUD ROCKS
3:54 [Comment From Jasmine!]
hey Melinda! what's your favorite song, from jordin's new album?
3:54 [Comment From lolme]
So Melinda, Kris or Adam, who tops?
3:55 melinda doolittle: I love my babies! I still keep in touch with Jordin, Phil, Gina, LaKisha, Chris Rich...
3:55 jaredcotter: hahahhaa...I didnt dedicate the SONG to my parents I dedicated the PERFORMANCE. I said that in the intro but everyone overlooks it. All good.
3:55 [Comment From Missingsomething]
Melinda, are you gonna be back on Idolatry occasionally next season?
3:55 AI Now: Good point Jared!
3:56 melinda doolittle: Battlefield is my favorite song on Jordin's CD so far, but she wrote Was I the Only one with my friend Christa Black, so I love that one too!
3:56 [Comment From MATTSTHIGHS]
It seems like rock music is taking over Idol. Do you think we will see another great soul singer win the show in the future?
3:56 melinda doolittle: I love me some Slezak, so I will probably be hanging with him on Idolatry again
3:56 AI Now: Any last question for Jared before he leaves us?
3:57 [Comment From avoidthevoid]
Michael Slezak is amazing! You were great on his show!
3:57 jaredcotter: Melinda tell Jordin to hit me up. I know shes busy but she's been whack lately. :-(
3:57 [Comment From SpunkyC]
you were awesome with Slezak
3:57 melinda doolittle: My favorite last season was Allison!!!!
3:57 jaredcotter: Mine too!
3:57 [Comment From lombort ontd-ai]
3:57 melinda doolittle: Yes sir, Jared! I'll make sure I tell her.
3:58 melinda doolittle:
We always see really cool soul singers on AI, so I'm looking forward to the next season already!
3:58 [Comment From Ricky T.]
Here's a curious question for both of you. I study classical music in college. Do you think Idol is due to have an operatic pop singer as an American Idol?
3:58 [Comment From Diana-TX]
Jared, do you think R&B does well on the Idol stage? As good as peeps are, they never seem to make it to the crown.
3:59 jaredcotter: Hey Ricky! A friend of mine asked me this the other day. I think it would be amazing!
3:59 melinda doolittle: I think if another Josh Groban type artist came through...sure! Classical pop is amazing!
3:59 [Comment From Joe-G]
Melinda.. gotta ask.. you keep in touch with Sanjaya....?
3:59 [Comment From kate]
melinda, what was your favorite allison performance?
3:59 [Comment From ONELONEINDIANTEAR]
DO YOU THINK NEXT YEAR WILL BE ABLE TO LIVE UP TO KRADAM THIS YEAR?
3:59 [Comment From noboundraays]
Do you have a signature look? Fedoras/Eyeliner/Plaid?
3:59 melinda doolittle: Yes, I talk to my Sanjy!!! Love that boy!
4:00 melinda doolittle: Favorite Allison: The duet with Cyndi Lauper
4:00 [Comment From Ricky T.]
That'd be totally awesome, I agree. Thanks guys! Plus, Melinda, I just want to say that I have your album in my iPod, and it is totally amazing! Keep it up!
4:00 jaredcotter: Great question Diana! I think it does well for a little but eventually pop is gonna have to be done. I might have changed a song or two probably looking back.
4:00 [Comment From Miss Beth]
Do you ever come to washington to visit Sanjaya??
4:01 melinda doolittle: I agree with Jared on that one!
4:01 [Comment From Megan]
Melinda, can you remind us when your remix of "It's Your Love" hits radio?
4:01 melinda doolittle: Sanjy lives in NYC now, and I do see him sometimes.
4:01 [Comment From baldhead]
Would you rock the Sanjaya hairstyles, Melinda?
4:01 [Comment From bg123]
What do you think of Blake's new stuff coming out? Do you keep in touch with him at all?
