I don't know if it is a good thing or bad thing about idol (when compared to Survivor or amazaing race, etc) but it really doesn't matter who wins at the final two.

Each of Crystal and Lee will make or not make a career regardless of who wins.

Crystal proved she has a better range, more control and is more polished than Lee tonight, and I think she is better than Lee, but I don't really care who America votes for.

i don't see how crystal could possibly lose after that. i really like lee and was rooting for him up until now, and i may be a bit biased because i despise "everybody hurts" and "beautiful day", but i thought he really fell completely flat on both of those songs. crystal is really just a better singer.

but yes, they are both going to do just fine regardless.

Crystal crushed his soul tonight. No need for a result show.

agree that Crystal blew Lee away tonight.

Also, Kris beat Adam because the whole state of Arkansas or Missouri or wherever he was from were given free AT&T access for the night.

Wasn't even close, Lee's fans will make it close.

good point. crystal certainly "deserves" to win, but that never seems to be quite enough.

Lee won the contest, and it wasn't close:

So I went and saw this live with my Mom since my cousin is doing the sound producing for the show and got us tickets.

The girl was so much better than the guy it was really, really obvious even to somebody as tone deaf and musically disinclined as myself.

Every time the guy was on stage, I felt like I was watching a talent show, and every time the girl was on stage I felt like I was watching a performance.

She was definitely worth watching, the guy not so much.

Also, why is Ellen on there? Nobody listens to her, she says absolutely nothing, she clearly doesn't really know much about music and she said she was repeating her earlier comments twice.

Also, the hype guy they had on between commercials was awful.

You live in a world where Ruben Studdard, Jordin Sparks, and Kris Allen are AI champions.

And Clay Aiken and Adam Lambert are waaaaaaaaaaaay better than Bowersox.

That was the biggest blowout final in the history of the show.

Crystal was so much better than Lee it was pathetic, so of course Lee is going to win.

moral of the story: 13-year-old girls are too stupid to make any decisions ever.

True I guess I'll not kill myself.

I have only seen the last 4 seasons so can't comment on the others--the ones with winners Jordin, Cook, Kris, and this year. Cook has been the only one I thought clearly deserved to win. I wasn't all that bothered by Jordin winning only because Melinda had no personality and while I was rooting for Blake he wasn't way better or anything. Kris over Adam was a travesty but at least Kris was still good. My main problem this year isn't necessarily that the less talented person could win but rather I think Lee is awful. Or, I dunno, possibly too harsh... he still has a lot of work to do before he ever reaches the level of Crystal.

I don't agree Jordin and Kris are worse than Lee.

I think Lee is fine. Jordin was pretty bad (but so was Blake, and Melinda was no prize either). This is Jordin in top 5, just awful.

Just a travesty that she beat Phil Stacey that week

Yeah, Blake sucked real hard and Melinda was super boring. But Lee would have won that season, and should have imo. Bowersox wouldn't have because she is a dirty hippie.

Man, Crystal really made Lee her bitch. That was some straight up domination, and an extremely impressive job on three pretty different songs. If there's any justice, she'll win. Which means Lee is probably going to win.

Let's post performances from idol losers that are better than anything that these idol finalists have done to date:

1. Reuben was amazing from day 1. A wire to wire winner.

2. Kris Allen, while not being as great as Adam, was certainly a great singer. He's worlds better than all 12 of the male top 24 this year.

3. Jordin won by default, much like Lee will if he wins.



I don't know how anyone could watch Lee butcher Beautiful Day and still vote for him in a singing competition.

Would he really release that as a single?

I'm not a big U2 fan but the original song blows that mess away. Lee is to Bono at singing as I am to Peyton Manning at football. Really poor song choice. "Everybody Hurts" was a very, very good choice and he botched it. Lee seemed kind of nervous. Crystal had her best week ever.

Lee won in a not-being-a-dirty-hippy competition. I shorted bowersox at like 40 because I didn't think a dirty hippie could win and I didn't think she could change her dirty hippie image.

I'll concede that Allen wasn't bad but Lambert was clearly better imo. But yeah, Allen is much better than Bowersox.

Aiken is far superior to Studdard. Post a Studdard "build me up buttercup" moment to prove me wrong.

like I said, compared to everyone else on this year's show outside of Crystal and Siobhan, Lee sounds pretty good.

Compared to real singers he is garbage.

I guess garbage is going to be good enough this year.
