''American Idol'': Weigh in on the final 24!

This week, Fox is shoving three hour-long helpings of American Idol down our collective gullets, but who's complaining? After all, is there anything sweeter than watching aspiring singers pour their hearts and souls out onto the stage, then sitting back in the comfort of your living room and passing judgment on them?

The boys got the party started on Monday, and while only a couple were flat-out terrible (so long, Jared Yates!), the majority unapologetically aimed for the middle of the road — perhaps a smart move considering that only 2 of the 12 guys are getting the boot Wednesday. The contest's 12 women strut their stuff tonight — and get a chance to disprove the early scuttlebutt that this season is all about the men. On Wednesday, the results show will somehow be padded to a bloated 60 minutes.

So what did you think? Were you wowed by Mario Vasquez's charismatic performance — or did those tricky notes get the best of him? Did you long for a spot in Judd Harris' travelin' band — or does he not even qualify for the road crew? How about the judges' favorite, Anwar Robinson? And what to make of the show's two ''rockers'': Bo Bice and Constantine Maroulis? Post your thoughts here, then check back Wednesday morning for's official take on the week's Idol performances.
