ellen's thoughts

I'm so excited! Tonight we find out who makes it to the finale! I haven't been this nervous since my wedding night. We played Jenga.

All three of the contestants are extremely talented, and I like each of them for different reasons, but I think the standout is Haley.

Haley is unique. She has an amazing voice, and she's not like anyone else out there. I was hoping the judges would show her a little more love. It feels to me like she gets the least support. I can only imagine what it feels like for Haley. Even with all of that pressure, she continues to deliver amazing performances. That's gotta be hard. My hat's off to her. To be honest, it's off anyway. I don't want to mess up my hair.

I want all of the contestants to be treated equally. So for what it's worth: Haley and Lauren, I want you both to shave your heads for the finale.

It's gonna be interesting to see who goes home tonight. I spent all last night hitting redial. But that's because I love prank-calling Harry Connick Jr.
