  1. What a pity! Simon, I love you! Welcome back!

    Last season’s two finalists should both be performing on the finale. That means not only Kris allen with his (and Pat Monahan’s) new single, but Adam Lambert with his new single. But, very sad to say, only Kris gets the AI boost. He already performed his fitst single on the show at the start of the season, by the way. It is what it is. Aguilera will be worth watching. There is that. :)

  3. It will be interesting to see if the best singer won this year, unlike some past seasons. it will also be interesting to see how many votes were cast., and if they will give the spead like they did every year except last year. Then, of course, is hopefully some surprises regarding Simon., since it is his last show. Aaw! American Idol has become a bore. Ellen gives it some life, but there is no one who has met the bar Adam Lambert raised last year. There is nothing to compare to:”Ring Of Fire”"Mad World”"whole Lotta Love”"A Change Is Gonna Come”"Cryin”"Feeling Good”"”If I Can’t Have You” really, it is a fact, no one has reached that bar.But Crystal is unique, a great singer, talened musician, songwriter, poised, confident,witty,personable, articulate and has great interaction with audience and maybe this year the voters got it right.

    I hope Crystal wins. She is the best of the two, voice and entertainment value. I think Lee has come a long way, but he needs lots of vocal coaching. Bad night last night.
