No, that's still Taylor's title. :D

I actually have a Lee song on my iPod. I do not, nor will I ever, have a Taylor Hicks song on there.

Totally.

I had no part of the win or loss. I did not vote a single time this season.

I am never never never ever ever ever going to watch again. Crystal was the best singer they have ever had.

I hope she makes triple what any previous winner has done, well maybe it will be too hard to catch Carrie.

Crystal is truly gifted and a great performer.

Worst. Winner. Ever.


Worse than Mr. Soul Patrol?

*edit* I'm too late. :lol:

I've said that so many times, yet I get sucked back in. :lol: However, Simon was my favorite so I'll just switch to X Factor and then proclaim that I'll never watch it again.

The power of the teenybopper vote rules again...

Exactly. It's really hard for a woman to win on AI unless she's the Carrie Underwood type. Honestly I'm not that upset...look how it worked out with Adam and Kris (although I was pissed as hell last year!). They're both doing well, they both got contracts and cars. I think Crystal will have fans outside of the Idol bubble and she will do well.

This was a pretty good article for those who haven't seen it about how hard it is for a woman to win on Idol:

I've heard that, but it was 50-50. Four women and four men. Now it's 5-4 so there should be a woman next year.

Lucky Charm and Shuilee must be happy :lol: The other 56 people who voted in the poll, not so much.

Honestly, yes.

Taylor is a like him or hate him kind of performer-with a lot of (annoying?) personality.

Lee is like a puppy that is slightly homely and not very playful. You feel sorry for him, but there is nothing distinguishing there.

I'm sure that Crystal will do just fine, perhaps even better after this highway robbery.

But I think we can put a fork in this show now. Between the teenie bopper power dialers and the inanity that is Kara, Ellen and Randy, I think Simon picked the right time to head for the hills.

Worse than Mr. Soul Patrol?Yes.


And I really don't think that a girl is going to win this show again. It was different in the earlier seasons, when seemingly everyone watched the show and you had all different groups voting. Nowadays I think the tweens hold more of the power, especially considering how much the texting thing has exploded, which definitely is an advantage for the tweens. And although I think the first two were deserving, the fact that we've had three straight conventionally attractive guys win kind of supports that I think.

LOL... these "viewer vote" shows are just so ridiculous now. I don't watch AI at all but I know about Crystal cause my mom watches it, and uh, she deserved it more...

but whatever. Can't change anything now.

And, the voters get it wrong as usual. Nothing new or surprising there. :yawn:


Seeing Bret performing and doing what he loves best absolutely made this finale for me :D

Me too. Love the guy; and, to be there after everything he's been through .... just WOW. :respec:
