@rickey @hrstump It's a years-long sinking ship. I agree with you both. It's funny, too, how people think if Jena had won, her sales would be much better than Caleb's.

Caleb was generic on Idol, absolutely and I've yet hear his album (no thanks). But he's absolutely right about Cook. Dynamic (and great once or twice) on Idol, he's released one shitty POP album after the other. He's no more a rocker than David Archuleta is a rapper. Let's be real here.

The only logical and sensible result. As I said yesterday, Christina is all power notes with no emotional connection ever. Josh has soul and Jake is a contemplative interpreter. So glad the voters saw through the charade. Good job, America.

That's what SHOULD happen, absolutely and logically, of course. But what SHOULD and what DO rarely coalesce. So I expect Christina will win. And slip into obscurity.

Judging from the few episodes of Idol I've seen this season (and even tonight), it should be a Jena/Caleb finale. But that ain't gonna happen.

Haven't watched much of The Voice this season, but, come on, Blake. Throwing around words like "important" for the umpteenth cute little girl with an unspectacular voice? Hyperbole much? She's no better (or worse) than any other little country novice we've seen a thousand times on Idol and this show. Her voice is not bad - it's just nothing special. At all.

Is she the front runner too win tomorrow? Seriously? Over Michelle and the Swon Brothers? WTF?!

A lot of talented people this year - watched my first performance episode today (last night's). Judith Hill was dynamite, sad she's gone. Sasha Allen is beyond amazing and I'm glad she's safe. But this is America, so I don't expect her to reign long.

I might actually have to watch the rest of this season!

Kree is a really good singer, but she's not in Candice's league. Which, if recent history dictates, means she'll probably win.

I'm a little behind here. Just got through Adam Lambert and Angie's quite dull "Titanium." Sia is a mediocre-at-best vocalist, but that song is thrilling - and this performance lacked. I'm surprised, considering Adam Lambert's vocal ability.

Well, not only should Robbie Williams sue, but David Archuleta should fly back from his missionary work and stuff Lazaro's bowtie down his throat. 

But I gotta say this. He's comic gold from where I sit. He's a doofy, goofy-looking mess - sweating like a hooker in a cop car's headlights and mumbling his lines like a patient from American Horror Story: Asylum. And his PTS the con of the year. 

I really hope he wins.

Whatever his reason, I hope your son is at peace now. Something he probably could never be while alive with a malevolent man like you as a father.

@NickRoman1@Mikhail XOWho cares about perfect pitch? I'd rather hear passionate off-key singing than mediocre, bland, passionless pitch perfect performances. That was Devin. And it wasn't just the song choices - HE was totally uninspiring, and completely forgettable. Of the few performances I've watched of his, I couldn't remember a single one after it was over.

Lazaro, on the other hand, has neither passion nor pitch. His addition and continual climb is the worst Idol scar since Jasmine Trias' ascension in season 3.

I surmised as much. He was looking very weak, tepid and gaunt (which made it all the more ridiculous that, with his weight loss, the writers kept putting in fat jokes courtesy of Sue) this whole season. GLEE sucks, but I wish him well.
