American Idol 2010
Down to Two


I've watched American Idol from the beginning. This season didn't quite do it for me. The judges don't seem to care anymore. Most of the contestants were unoriginal and boring. The show has lost its spark. I was seriously disappointed in last night's show. I think it proved to me, more than any other season has, that America doesn't necessarily pick the winner.

I voted for Lee.



Do you watch American Idol?

Do you have a favorite?

Did you vote?

I stopped watching regularly after the second season. I had a feeling it was going to continue getting worse and worse. I have kind of paid attention throughout this season since it's always on when I go to my family's house for dinner and I like Lee better than Dreadlocks. I'll be watching tonight to see who wins.

It's lost its luster for me as well. I like auditions and Hollywood week, pretty much everything before top 12.

I stopped watching this season pretty early on. I watched less and less when Alex Lambert left, then stopped altogether when Siobhan left. Everyone else was kinda boring.

I liked both of them. Although, I agree with you, this season has just been limp and lame.

I am rooting for Lee. His rendition of "Hallelujah" last week was one of those goose bump moments. But, last night, I do have to admit, Crystal outshone him.

I love the fact that they're giving them real songs for their first song instead of cheesy schlock. Having said that, Lee didn't bring it to, "It's A Beautiful Day." But, then again there is only one man who can own that song.

My favorite season was the season of David and David. David Cooke all the way!

How about your favorite?

I was rooting for Casey because he has a country thing going. Now that he's out of it, I don't really care. Neither one blows my skirt up.

I wanted Casey to win!!! But, now I'm totally rooting for Lee now!

I voted like an obsessed teenager for LEE! I must agree...this season was B.O.R.I.N.G.

I literally tried to watch one episode this season (I usually watch it from start to finish), but I couldn't get through an episode because the horrible "singing" by some of the contestants were hurting my ears. I don't particularly like Ellen either. I think the show won't last without Paula and Simon. :(

i have no idea who either of these people are...so, no. i don't watch the show. i used to watch the tryouts to see all the horrible wannabe's, but that got old after a while.

I agree this season has been a disappointment! I was surprised that those finalist were the best singers out there! I too am rooting for Lee! I have a felling crystal will win! I guess we'll see!

Stacy said...

I didn't vote but I'm rooting for Crystal! There's no current artist like her out right now. I like Lee but I've heard that voice time and time again! So goooooo Crystal!!!!!

The only season I have ever watched was the one with Carrie Underwood. I haven't been able to get interested other than that.

I have never ever watched a season of it. As A Real Housewife mentioned, I like to watch the first few during tryouts but always feel pretty bad for the terrible singers. Id make an awful judge.

Dugout Daisy said...

Totally rooting for Lee too! This season was horrible tho and the judges kept saying they had the best talent ever out of all the past seasons... um, no. Big no.
My friend works for Ryan and he already knows who won but won't tell me... I really hope itz good news!

Watching the finale as I type this. I am a fan of the show but this year it did seem to lack some of it's original sparkle
GO LEE!

Crystal is the only real performer, but Lee will win because she's too different, just like Adam. Lee doesn't deserve to win because he's so inconsistent and boring, his voice will never really sell records -- just like last year's 'winner.'

If the voters really backed up their voting when they choose a winner, it would show in the record sales and it doesn't. We've only had two true winners, Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood. Fantasia is busy but doesn't make the sales. Clay Aiken is falling off, but he was number two and Rubin Studdard, the winner, couldn't sell more than 250,000!

With Simon gone, I'm afraid the show if finally finished. There's no way Randy and Kara can carry the show. And, of course, I could be 100% wrong.

Which one is Lee, the boy or the girl??
I heard Simon was quoted saying, "Hiring Ellen was the biggest mistake the show ever made." Thoughts on that??
