As I said last night, the best ones went off earlier.

I guess it's a good thing that most of the song could be sung by the back up chorus. :)

I wonder if he'll skip out on any publicity for the sake of his surgery. And I wonder if that happens, if it will mean less publicity for Jessica, or more for her and (maybe) Joshua?

Folks, it was a good year. Over all talent was better than the past few years.

Judges need to be replaced, or at least give them better cards ...


The question now needs to be asked, can a lady ever again win American Idol?

Recaps are up.

A couple of final thoughts, after reading them.
--Why did the top 12 guys (minus Philip) get 2 performances, and the top 12 girls only get one? In a season where female talent was so highly praised, you'd think TPTB would want to show off the girls a little more.

--What is the deal with the "racism" comments about the WGWG thing. Isn't it more about cuteness and recognition of the preferences of 12yo girls? I'm not even sure who is saying what is racist, but I'm starting to see that comment over and over.

--I have a feeling we're not going to get a P2 idology. :(

--Camp Should-a-been starts June 21. I'll go out on a limb and call it for Jessica. Based on Ratings, not my personal preference.

wasn't jessica involved in more songs than phillip? sure seemed like that to me...maybe that was their gift for being runner up

one of the biggest problems with the com box battles is half of them don't even know what the definition of racism is... i actually provided it ro someone last night...but i'm not sure which article it was on

was lee dewyze cute? i dunno... i can see david cook and kris allen falling into that category... and in lee's year, casey james and tim urban (who lasted longer than he shoud have based on looks and smile i'm sure) were much "cuter" than lee... i'm still surprised deandre and colton went out as early as they did, based on cuteness alone... i guess the cute vote got watered down and spread out too much...though not once did philip fall into the bottom (that we are aware of)

why do you think there will be no p2 idology...time constraints with his surgery and the start of the tour?

well to be completely honest, i never did any such thing :fyi: here is what i did say...i went back and checked

saw my first top 10 performer...i hope... for those that didn't watch ... i present phillip phillips

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XKNoljoX4nM

*************************************************************

don't know what i missed, but 15 year old eben was the first i heard.... easy to see why he went through...very pure voice...don't know how far he'll go, but if he makes the televised show, lots and lots of little girls will be using their monthly minutes to vote for him

*************************************************************
eben is either 15 or an early 16... if it comes down to him and david, i hope they pick eben...more for his personality than his voice... there is just something off-putting to me about david's personality , though i think he does have the better voice

*************************************************************
i don't have a favorite boy, but my favorite girl that i will go ahead and pick for the win is jennifer hirsh..

*************************************************************

and Eben Franckewitz

I didn't notice if Jessica sang the song with Chaka Khan. If she did, then she sang more than Philip, b/c he didn't sing with the top 12 guys at all. Both of them had 2 other songs - hers were a solo and the J.Hol, compared to his 2 with Fogerty. Hers seemed like more.

What I'm talking about is the other girls. The only top-12 girl number was the one with Chaka Khan. Whereas the boys got to sing 2 numbers - Neil Diamond and the Beegees.

Lee was cute enough. It's not done purely on looks - there has to be a certain amount of performance/singing ability also. Both david's in Season 7 were cute. Something had to break the tie. Tim Urban's looks got him as far as he went - by voice alone, he shouldn't have ever made it on tv at all. Casey is tougher, b/c his voice was better - and he was objectively a little cuter than Lee - but the way they played Lee's rags to riches, vulnerable paint salesman storyline, that helped. Also, the only time Casey got all vulnerable is Jealous Guy, whereas Lee always seemed vulnerable. Maybe Lee was a little more non-threatening (a feature which 12yo power voters will appreciate).

idol has lowest rating finale ever...not surprising since ratings have been down all year...only 21.5 million tuned in, down 32 % from last year's lowest rated finale...
