kirjtc2 They should have given that award to Antonella just to keep the male demographic happy.

Danster Unfortunately, in this business, there are no morales. If it sells, they will put it on TV to get shock value. I work with kids like Johnathan and I don't find it right at all to put them on the public place only to turn them into a mockerie.

Exploitation or Entertainment?

I'm like most everybody, I laugh at the beginning of the season when they show some contestants who are delusional and audition but I thought AI producers took advantage of the 3 people they gave 'Golden Idols' to in the finale.

This was the 'Chicken' lady ,Kennith and Johnathon. I think its Kennith who is the bigger of the 2 boys and he appears to be slightly mentally challanged. I was embarassed for them.

kirjtc2 They should start a show called American Beatboxer. Blake would be a shoe-in there.

But last night? Jordin's a shoe-in.

Cap No Doubt Jordan is a better singer...But does anyone think Taylor Hicks was the best singer last year????? I doubt it.

coaster Jordin beat Blake by a mile last night. I fear, however, that the tweens will have made Blake the winner.

james99 Blake, you give singing........ a bad name.

When he loses, perhaps he can join that 5 Morons group.

I intentionally left her out as I consider that Oscar was for acting, even though it was in a musical. She has yet to show us a successful recording career.

zoolou Shocked ....Yes.... Surprised ......No.......Melinda will no doubt be a star....she sticks with that Tina Turner bluesy style shes laughing all the way to the bank.....As for not winning it lets just look at last year....Chris Daughtry should have won hands down ....where are the top 2?????? Don't need to win AI to be a star Chris has proved that and Melinda will as well

Hmm... let's see now. of the past 5 seasons how many losers are doing well..... only 2 I can think of Clay A. Chris D. and it is really too early to see how quickly they start to fade, Clay is fading already.

Meanwhile the 'good' winners like Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Fantasia continue to grow their careers.

Of course 'Votefortheworst' could screw everything up....

Melinda might do OK if her management & song selections are right... though I don't believe she will be as successful as she would have been as the winner.

FortMacDude AI=Popularity Contest...sad but true.

Melinda will become a legend, mark my words.

But how old are you, and if you lived in the US would you be inclined to vote 10 times through all the busy signals for her like Blake's fan base would? I'd say you'd try once, and if it was busy hang up and go do something else (like I do on Canadian Idol...I'll try once, if it's busy, well, that's it for me)
10? Try hundreds...I remember a couple of years ago when there was a Canadian Idol contestant from a town not too far from here, the locals there bragged in the paper about how they voted 300-400 times a week. How the hell they get the stamina to do that is beyond me.

Even I've been known to put 2-3 dozen in. If you can't beat em, join em...

They (both American and Canadian Idol) really need to put a cap on the number of votes from each phone line...maybe 10 per contestant per week.
