If Simon was still on the show he would have been ripping on her alot this year. The finale this year leads me to believe that the primary voters are teenage girls.
Casey was my favoritye, but I really thought James was going to win. I was very surprised when he got sent home.
I agree with most of this. The Top 13 was the most talented group they've ever had. However, it quickly went down hill. Pia and Casey were gone way too soon. The voting really messed up a potentionally great season. And it showed because last night was the worst finale the show has ever seen. Just abysmal.
I thought Haley improved the most and should be the winner this year. She'll have the best career. Lauren is pretty good, but will need someone amazing to take her to the next level. Scotty, IMO, is pretty bad. I don't get the fascination with him.
I really don't know who will win tonight. And I really don't care. I don't see either doing much in the future. Similar to David Cook or Taylor Hicks.
