That skit they just did with James, Casey and Pia was pretty funny.

Might be the second Howdy Doody to win. Although nowhere near the voice of Clay.

Clay barely outsold Ruben. 4.9 million (5 albums) to 2.5 million (4 albums) sold.

Kinda...both are non existent much like all but 2 or 3 contestants.

True, but Clay was also on Broadway and has done some TV work. I don't think I've heard Ruben's name since the night he won.

Ruben was popular among Gospel singers.

Lauren took it like a champ. Good luck to all of them. I think more than a few will get contracts.

And I'm the most popular guy on the second floor of a TownePlace Suites in Cleveland right now. WooHoo.

This has to be the first year where I like both of them equally. Scotty has a great voice and performs well and Lauren is made to sing country and the camera loves her. They will both do well no matter what happens. I would also guess that at some point we will see them release a duet.


Yes, I'll admit they were both very good. I still wanted Hailey... :grin:

Yeah does it really need to be two hours? And why not announce the winner a little earlier so they can talk to them afterward for while?

I really wish James would have sang with Steven.

Supposedly there are already "informal" plans to do just that on Scotty's first record...at least that's what the local Fox station reported last night.

The New York Times's Alessandra Stanley thinks Idol is "indestructible".

He was a little bit country; she was a little bit country.

Scotty McCreery, the 17-year-old from Garner, N.C., won, but the real competition wasn’t between him and fellow Southerner Lauren Alaina, 16, of Rossville, Ga. All along, the contest was between “American Idol” past and “American Idol” present. It turned out that even after 10 seasons, with fewer frills and a different cast of judges, the ratings soared. “American Idol” is indestructible. [more]

You're not the only one who noticed. :P From that same article I referenced in the previous post:

Ms. Alaina brought some sass and swagger to her songs, but Mr. McCreery, with his sweet Alfred E. Neuman face and uncannily deep voice, was a throwback to an earlier generation of country stars like Mel Tillis.

Imagine if Scotty had kissed his Church of Satan upside-down cross instead of the one he wears. How many votes would he have gotten?

This sets a new bar for next year's show: Kiss Jennifer, Christian crosses, and the butts of any mass-acceptance pop culture totems or icons possible. Singing optional.

Yeah, this season - for all its early successes - really sucked. I suppose the fresh new judging-faces had something to do with it, but it soon turned into just another blah season on a show that's getting long in the tooth.

The real good singers continued to leave early as the so-so singers found themselves entrenched and eventually crowned.

If JLo is a judge next season, I'll probably miss it.

Different strokes, I guess. If it was up to me, of the three, J.Lo is the only judge I'd bring back! :P
