Anybody still watching at the end?

Was the winner who you expected? Who did you want to win?

Leanna & I wanted James Durbin (tail boy ) to win. Rachel wanted Lauren. Until Pia left I expected her to win. When it was down to the last 3 I expected Hayley to win...she had a much more mature and professional look to her than the other 2. Aw well...I hope they all have fantastic careers.

Leslie and I watched it. We couldn't believe with the huge amount of talent this year that the final two were who they were.

Leslie wanted James to win and I like Hayley from a while ago. I never liked Pia and expected her to go earlier than she did, I don't know what the big fuss was about.

Leslie is a trained singer and gets frustrated with the show, I keep trying to explain to her that singing ability has nothing to do with it. It is a popularity contest more or less.

I don't know about a big recording careers but I can guarentee the top two people will be singing at country fairs the rest of thier lives!

I didn't like Pia's song choices but she did have a great voice. Same with Stephano (although I could picture him in a leisure suit playing in Vegas!)

What does Leslie think of Lauren? I think Lauren has a great voice, but they have shown her audition a number of times and I can't hear whatever the judges heard that made them think she was so fantastic. If her audition was today as she sings now after coaching I'd understand, but I didn't see anything special at the audition.

DH & I both wanted Lauren to win. I'm still in shock that Scotty won. We are really disappointed.

I'm pretty sure I heard Leslie say that Lauren had a great voice but no stage presense (i.e. no ability to entertain).

I think them lowering the age messed things up because some people had good voices but didn't know what to do with them and others were just plain immature.
