Crystal and Lee have been my personal favorites since the comp started, so if either of them win the whole shabang I'll be happy. Casey is really cute and seems like a sweet guy, but vocally he just hasn't impressed me all that much.
I hope Casey and Crystal make the final two. Lee is my least favorite. Don't like his voice quality at all, he's a poor version of David Cook, in my opinion. If Lee wins, won't watch AI anymore. The talent, as a whole, has been pretty lack-luster. 42
Here is something about AI from Mike Evans
I love Ellen but don't understand why she was on AI. If I could choose between Ellen & Kara, I would take Ellen.TV News: American Idol will move from Tuesday and Wednesday nights, to Wednesday and Thursday nights, next year! And, I believe Jamie Foxx will replace Simon Cowell next year and Ellen De Generes will be let go. …
I think they should have standards on how to judge and not just opinions. We all can select our favorite, but can we back it up with musical knowledge?
One thing about stone faced Simon, he knew the right song for DeWyse.
Lee is a nice guy, but has zero star quality, I never even remembered his name until like two weeks ago. Crystal is just adorable, I love her, her voice, her look, her attitude. We need another girl Idol anyway. I feel that if Lee wins he will become just another Cook, one or two rather popular records but just not Idol status.
I cannot fathom Lee winning over Crystal. I'm still not over Kris winning over Adam last year or Ruben winning over Clay. I think the final results must be manipulated somehow or America really doesn't know much about music or talent..........42
I loved Chicago and Janet Jackson. At various times, Janet sounded just like Michael. Also what a surprise to see Brett Michaels there.

Well, I am done with AI. This was a show I eagerly waited for each season but now could care less. When America crowned Taylor Hicks the winner a few seasons ago, I thought rock bottom had been hit, but I was wrong. How did a singer, (and I use the term loosely) like Lee ever make it to the top. Unbelievable! 42
what a lackluster finale... the Simon Sendoff looked like it was an afterthought. poorly done.
and once again a lot of the guests were a 'we need the money so we said yes to this' parade. disappointing.
Janet looks fantastic with the super short hair, and she sounded so much like Michael it was scary.
I agree Toni............It was more of a Simon send-off than the crowning of a new AI..............42
AI is all about the network's wishes. Being anti-gay pleases American viewers. Adam and Clay didn't have a chance despite their better talents. Fox reaches out to their perceived American wishes. A frompy looking female is not American despite her talents. The winner this time had even less personality than the previous boy. IMHO, I believe Simon was paid a special bonus to push Lee forward to be winner.
Abdul was flaunting her 'straitness' by throwing barbs at Ellen who replaced her because Fox did not want to appear that they were against gays. Fox got a lot of Twitter flack on that. Despite Abdul's face lift and costume, she still looked flabby to me. Simon's face lift was better.
The show was basically a bore. I wonder how many turned in for the celebration of Simon, and how many turned in for the winning announcement?
The Washington Post gives a good review of the show. Check it out. It was interesting to note that those second placers sell more albums than the winners. apparently the female voters do not buy the albums.
The description in the Washington Post tells it better than I can.
