Umm....one of the biggest money makers in music is country. 25% of the billboard 100 this week are country artists. That's why lots of rock and pop do crossovers.

I understand that.
I also realize that AI voting/success is driven by "tween" and "Bible Belt" voters.
They don't speak for all Southerner's, however!

Well, that was anti-climactic. To me the whole show has been after James left.


ETA: As a native Georgian, it is absolutely embarrassing that Lauren Alaina is from the same state. Oh come on. Is she a convicted murderer or a 16-year-old kid in a singing competition?

Anyway, I'm glad Haley is gone. I couldn't stand her behavior on stage; smiling seductively no matter what song; stomping awkwardly around like a mare in labor; sexing up everything, and no, growling excessively didn't help. And she had this look like she was thinking of cutting you if things didn't go her way. Also, Stevie Nicks she's not. She seemed like she started to drink her own kool aid.

All in all, I'm amazed how mediocre the final 3 was this year. The 3 Top show was pretty unbearable, especially with all that praise from the judges for every single thing they did. X, Y, Z are in it to win it, dawg! MEH.

I didn't miss Simon at the beginning but I do now. A lot. This judges panel is so tedious, so predictable, so useless.

ETA: Who made the poll? It asks for your top 2, but you can only select one person. :lol:

Lauren will never get the "Miss Sensitivity" title: From an article about what went on after the cameras turned off & everyone crowded onstage to talk to Haley: "Lauren was in a hopping mood — literally. She and J.Lo started jumping up and down together, and then Lauren walked over to Tyler, and they started hopping together. (Lauren, you have every right to be thrilled about making the finale, but maybe you shouldn’t be jumping for joy in front of the person who was just eliminated)."

Oh wait, she's only 16 so she gets a pass. But what was JLo's excuse?

Other than a vehicle to promote that new album and video, I did wonder why she agreed to do the show. That explains it.

In addition, has anyone noticed how many commercials JLo has been in???? She is raking in the big bucks.

I knew Fox was worried about The Voice. They've dominated the 18-49 demographic for the time slot since they've been on the air. NBC is giving it a full season starting in January (Mondays). It will be very interesting to see what happens next spring. And they're giving The Sing Off a full season in the fall. :cheer2:

I don't have the exact numbers, but I think something like 60% of AI's total viewer-ship isn't 18-49 (either younger or older), and I don't see that trend stopping anytime soon.

I think the Voice at a 9pm time slot could be interesting come next winter.

Has anyone heard if Haley is going to be on Jay Leno or Ellen?

ETA: just read that Haley may be getting a record deal. Looks like Jimmy Iovine wants to sign her.
