    Did Taoi Cruz forget the lyrics or was he just really really phoning it in?

    IDK, but he was once again proving that the contestants are usually more talented than the "stars."

    Did they actually have another singer perform in the middle of the fecking finale? All I heard was Ryan say something about Oprah, and then we got a weather warning. When it was over, commercials were on.

    Apparently he was not impressed at all and said James just copied other metal singers. He said Haley was a far better singer. James was really pissed that Adam *dissed* him. I take it James used to be a fan but isn't any longer. :lol:

    the kid is a gentleman. I am not a fan of his singing but I think he is mature and well mannered.

    :lol: Adam was way stronger than James. I find it funny that the two were being compared earlier.

    The only two words I here are This big over and over and over again get some depth to the songs. I've never been annoyed at Scotty as I am tonight. I know he's just a kid, but damn really?

    I said singers and performers. Pia is a singer and James is a performer
    Pia wasn't much of a performer.

    I don't compare them because Adam bugged me.

    Big difference - Skating and Gymnastics have limited careers. Singers can and do have long careers. If you screw up the voice for one title, you screwed your whole career.

    Yes and no. Lauren probably feels like this is her ONE chance. We all know that isn't true but she has obviously put a ton of pressure on herself as evidenced when she was in the bottom. So I think in her mind it is do or die while most of us know she will be fine and doesn't need to win to have a steady or even great career.

    Oooo Lauren going for the mother vote. Smart move. She could get a hit with this like that horrible Jesus Take the Wheel Carrie started with. I hated that song, but it sold well.

    Very very smart on Lauren's part. She did well with the song, it's so cheesy but good for her, I'd pick her a million times over.

    Lauren is doing every thing she can for some extra votes. Props to her. She has next to no chance so might as well throw out your voice and cry in front of your mom all you can. lol That one note was off and it was no doubt because of her voice but being an emotional song it was OK. Finally a song she could connect to.

    Mini me and mom. Neither of these songs are hit material but are any of the idol songs?

    :eek: and Jennifer puts it out there!! She's trying.

    I'll vote for Lauren a couple of times. She did very well tonight all things considered.

    Randy "FINALLY it is the Lauren we grew to love in Nashville." Do you know how many different times he has said this over the course of the season? She has made at least 5 comebacks according to Randy. JLo says she "may have just won." I am guessing she doesn't see the vote totals after all. Steve votes for her as well. I still see Scotty winning in a landslide even though Lauren was my favorite tonight.

    Judges should know not to do a coronation. Sometimes that backfires. I doubt either's fans will vote for the other so it will depend on the neutral votes on who wins. I have no predictions.

    Somebody asked if there were teen male country singers. Does the fact Beiber just recorded a country song with Rascal Flatts? There have been several teen girl stars, but the boys tend to have to drink and fight a lot first.

    I think Lauren's song was significantly better. Both were OK, but Lauren definitely had an edge in terms of material. That's hardly fair. What happened to when they would both get the same song?

    It's his first time there. Everyone else has been at least once.

    Well, the stars seem aligned for Lauren. Pre-show drama & sympathy, very good performances, song about Mom, and the support of the judges. Maybe she could pull this out. Or maybe I'm just ignorant.

    I think that they believe Scotty will be successful no matter what, that Lauren needs the title to be successful.
    rfisher is right - the neutral voters will be the ones to target.

    I enjoy country music, but it makes for a lame finale. I want to see the final two go out and sing something :kickass:
