    well until Idol changes their voting format I am done watching it. After the 2 previous crap seasons and now this.

    So someone PM me next season if idol changes to vote for who you think should go home instead of this vote for your favorite crap.

    I was, to say the least, disappointed. Not shocked, mind you, because America gets it wrong a lot. Pia was really the only consistent performer for me and while I admit her sound was a bit generic at least it was pleasing. I had been very disappointed from both Paul and Stefano because I felt that they really didn't understand what they were singing about. Paul's bouncy rendition of "Folsom Prison Blues" was way, way out — he was awfully happy to watch a man die, if you see my point.

    I blame the judges who haven't said a bad thing about anyone in weeks. Simple as that.

    Paul surviving last week could have been the result of the "Vote for the Worst" shenanigans that sometimes come into play.

    Pia not getting enough votes is reminiscent of the year Daughtry got eliminated (before three much weaker singers, IMHO). The post-mortem on that one was that his fans figured he was so far ahead, they didn't need to pick up the phone and vote. As it turned out, it worked out well for him because not finishing in the top 2 allowed him to sign his own promotion/record deals.

    Much weaker? You think Katherine McPhee is a much weaker singer than Daughtry? Wow. I admit he maybe should have won, though.

    Allowing multiple voting is what is wrong. Tweeners vote hundreds of times and they vote for awful singers like Paul.

    "stuff" happens.

    I am gonna keep on with the season. I don't feel that Pia would have been in the top three. Her voice stood out, but thats about it.

    It was an emotional ending for sure....

    Ya. She had one great week, IMHO... the "judges' pick" week where Simon selected Over The Rainbow for her. I thought week to week, Chris Daughtry was consistently better. She certainly was easy on the eyes, tho, especially compared to the three ugly mugs that made up the rest of the top 4. :p

    I’m not a fan of Pia at all. However, a few other idols (Stefano, Paul, Casey) suck more than her.

    I bet the judges wish they had their save back. :lol:

    Not sure I have much faith in the DBSTALK poll results. Casey was voted off the week he got the most votes on the DBSTALK poll. Now this week Pia has the most votes. :lol:

    James will win AI.

    Not sure if he will, but he should be in the top three. I can see Scott there as well. If James does win Santa Cruz will be partying in the streets.

    We'll have to wait and see who held onto their aces towards the end.

    Only one vote per person (per contestant) allowed on DBSTalk :)

    I thought Pia was definitely top 3 material even in her robotic/rubber state, but out @ #9? .. Injustice.

    Agreed. I wish she would have shown her "human" side more as she did in the end.

    Maybe that’s why people didn’t connect with her.

    I do agree. She was far better than #9

    Funny, when I read your post, this movie quote came to mind:

    "Of my friend, I can only say this: of all the souls I have encountered in my travels, his was the most... human."
    - Captain James T. Kirk

    Oh, and I still stand by my stance that Scotty will win. He's simply got what AI voters will vote for.

    James very well may have worked himself into the final with this weeks performance and Pia's demise.

    Would be interesting to see who win in that finally, though .. The Edgy James or the Cheesy Scotty .. Still going with the cheese. :p

    I FF through the shows to catch highlights mainly because my DiL still watches, it's something to talk about.
    There used to be a lot of Idol discussion at the office but none lately. I guess it's just not as interesting as it used to be? I miss Simon.
    No real favorite contestant or strong feelings on who is going to win from me other than the sooner Paul goes the better, followed by Casey and Jacob.

    Yet another American "Idle" blind-side. Which really means she won't belong to Fox or Universal Music. She's now a free-agent.

    Break-a-leg, Pia!

    By far the biggest shocker in Idol history! No, I'm not talking about the results. That Iggy Pop performance was incredible. It left me speechless and I think I might have even had a nightmare about it. Jlo's reaction as he sang to her close-up was priceless. She couldn't have been more uncomfortable.
