Not so long ago, when Nikki squeaked past Tamyra to continue competing on ”American Idol,” she found little love on our message boards — but when she was rock & rolled out the door because Justin and Kelly got more votes from viewers, a few folks decided that, well, maybe she wasn’t so bad after all. Some remarks from their eulogy:

”Nikki, it was sad to see you go. I think you are very talented and you hold no qualms?. You are you, and that’s what makes America the way it is today.” — Courtney

”Nikki, this girl just grows on ya… Liked her more every week she performed… Loved the way she handled the overabundance of pressure and the stride of growth week to week… Great fun to watch!!!” — Ken D.

”Nikki had style and an awesome voice…. I won’t be watching the show anymore, now that Nikki is off!” — Brooklyn

”’Black Velvet,’ if you please. Sing your song, girl.” — Mike

That’s not to say that several people weren’t pleased about her dismissal:

”Oh, give up on Nikki, will you? She’s gone, history, yesterday’s news . . . Look for her in the upper left corner of ‘Hollywood Squares.”’ — idull

”The only talent Nikki has is coloring her hair. I mean, the girl looks like she fell out of the laundry hamper in everyone else’s mixed clothes.” — Kevin

”Maybe if she took that tongue ring out, she could have hit a note once in a while.” — Tasha

Generally, though, most posters decided to forget about Nikki altogether and move on to the main event: Kelly vs. Justin….
