    We shall see. For some reason, I have been given Tues eve off, and trust me, my redial will be used! And NOT for Lee! He should have been voted off long, long ago. And again, if he does win, I predict that you will never hear from him again!

    I am glad the correct two made it into the finals. I think they are the best of the season, and I wouldn't be able to pick a favorite from them. I'll be happy either way the final turns out. :)

    DialIdol.com - Measuring the busy signal.

    Major upset tonight as according to Dial Idol, Lee gets vast majority of votes and should win. Poor Crystal...she was WAY better than Lee last night as far as I'm concerned. No matter though....she'll have a fantastic career just like many other very talented non-winner's over the years. It's just kind of anti-clilmactic, given that tonight's Simon's final Idol appearance. There's no question that he liked Crystal. Darn those tween and teen girls!!! They really need to change the voting system.

    I thought that Lee and Crystal about tied the first round. Neither of them seemed to do as much justice to the song they liked the most from earlier in the season. I thought Crystal won the second round, but I liked Lee the best in the third round. Really, I think they are equally talented and the only sad thing is is that there can't be two winners.

    Crystal was the best, of course. All season. Especially last night. Lee had no business winning against her.

    SPOILER ALERT SPOILER ALERT SPOILER ALERT!!!

    Don't read if you haven't seen american idol results show.

    Thought I would add that on top just in case there are some who dvr'd/tivo'd it and are watching it later.

    I was disappointed with the results. I wanted Crystal to win, and I felt that she deserved to win. Also, I find it ridiculous that Lee's single is going to be one that was so hugely known prior. Why wouldn't they give him a new song? So strange. At least Crystal's song, although not new, was not widely known as having belonged to a well known artist.

    I guess in the end it doesn't matter who won because I'm sure they'll both have a recording contract. I must say that it was nice to see Brett Michaels singing with Casey. Brett has done a lot of things in his life that are not appetizing imho, but the guy has been through a lot this past year. It was nice to see him moving around, singing, enjoying himself with Casey. I hope he will be completely restored to good health, and that the Lord Jesus will be His Rock & Fortress for the rest of his life here, and for all eternity.

    It was nice to see Janet too. She looked good, better then most might look after all she's been through this past year. I liked her hair cut short like that too, and she was looking really fit. Good to see her like that, and smiling again.

    Having said that, I loved seeing all of the past winners (with the exception of one not having been there), and so many of the former contestants from years past as well. Simon seemed gracious in his departure. Paula was interesting. Kara seemed uncomfortable having Paula there, and if I'm not mistaken it looked at one point like she was trying to get Paula to get off of Simon's lap and sit in a chair.

    That was all a distraction for the real show, the results, which, again, for me, were a disappointment. BUT.. I will say this about Lee, he seems to be a genuinely nice guy who has worked hard to get to where he his, so I hope this win will do great things for his future. Wishing Crystal a brilliant future as well, and I'd really love to see Casey & Siobhan do something too. I like both of them.

    Now that this is out of the way: Who do you think would make a good replacement for Simon?

    I loved Crystal and Lee, so to me, it didn't matter who won. I will buy albums from both of them! This year's finale was just wierd. Very different from past years.

    However......as someone pointed out on Twitter, as runner-up Crystal will probably have the more successful career. I think only Kelly Clarkson and my all-time fave, Carrie Underwood have had huge careers as the winners. Many of the most successful idols never won. I actually thought Crystal sang better than Alanis last night on her song! I'm looking forward to Crystals album.

    I hope you don't think I spoiled it by posting the Dial Idol link. I saw it on a news site and was surprised. In a way, it was good to know that going in, so that I wouldn't be so disappointed. Lee's a nice guy, but he doesn't have the talent that Crystal has.

    What was *UP* with Paula last night? That whole thing with her standing up there talking was WEIIIIIIRD!! It seemed very uncomfortable and like she was rambling. I kept waiting for something to happen but it never did.

    Janet Jackson was obviously lip syncing as her voice over the microphone kept coming in and out. She sounded exactly like Michael.

    I hope Crystal has a better career. When I found out that Dial Idol has never been wrong and that they had Lee as the winner, I knew ahead of time..it was like the surprise was ruined.

    Sorry, but this was, by far, the worst year for AI. INMO, Lee should have been voted off in the 2nd week of the top 12, after Paige. He is just terrible. I predict that you will never, ever hear from him again!

    What can save IA next year?

    1. Kill the judges save
    2. Change the votiing to "vote OFF" instead of "voting for".

    Lee will be like another Taylor....one who was supposed to never win and you never hear from him again.

    Correct! Taylor won on personality, an Lee won on looks. Both are no-talents, at least in my opinion.

    American Idol is doomed if they do not change the voting to vote OFF instead of vote FOR.

    I'm just curious as to who thinks Lee is good-looking. I certainly don't think so. But I do think he sings extremely well! He and Crystal were definitely the best of the season, and both deserved to win!

    But I kind of agree that the voting needs to be changed to voting off rather than voting for your favorite.

    I think Lee has a really cute smile and a sexy way about him, but I don't think he's a very good singer. I wanted him off weeks ago.
