    Yes! He definitely should have, I was very happy with the outcome :)

    Well, you asked……..James Durbin should have won……he is definitely the best entertainer and singer with the best voice range……..but congratulations Scottie.

    Haley should have won. It angers me when people call her a bitch. You don’t know her. And all she did was stick up for herself. If a guy did that, no one would think twice about it, but because she a girl, she’s a “bitch.” Ridiculous. She was the most diverse, the most talented, and the most enjoyable, in my opinion. Having said that, I have nothing against the other contestants, and congratulations to Scotty. I wish him the best.
