    Mark me down as one person who thinks Carrie can hold her own against Bo. I don't see the robot in Carrie that so many others claim to see. I think Carrie is more uncomfortable on stage at this time in her career, and this is where Bo has a big edge because he is a lot more comfortable up there. If Carrie can relax enough she could take the crown. At least I'll be happy if either one of them wins this time around. They both so different from one another it will make an interesting finale.

    RubyRed, I agree with you. While I will be voting for Bo next week. I would be happy with either of them winning. They are both exceptional singers. Carrie has shown this week that she isn't as uncomfortable on the stage as some are saying. Good luck to her.

    I said it before and I'll say it again. I don't see how wandering around a stage and making thrusting motions with a mike stand and doing karate kicks = stage presence? Bo is more comfortable on stage, but he and his band have been doing it for quite a while.

    I think Carrie it a better vocalist by far. She has range and is able to go from one to the other almost effortlessly...not so much for Bo.

    Bo is cool and I like what he's added to a very cookie cutter competition, but I think Carrie is probably a better choice for AI.

I know that was ages ago but it still rings in my mind -- every single bloody word!!! But now, it looks like Carrie is going downhill and could be sent home tonight!!! I DO NOT hate her, in fact she is a nice, charismatic person and I have more respect for her than I do Diana (from AI3). But the fact is, she is not the breadwinner of the group anymore -- Bo is!!!
    I have to disagree too. Carrie does have the IT factor. She drew me in with her first audition. It's not her fault that Simon said she would win it. He did pimp Fantasia last year, too. Carrie is the better singer of the two of them, and this is a singing competition, not just a performing competition.

    I'm so happy we're getting a Bo/Carrie final! For the first time I can just enjoy it and not give a hang who wins...either will be okay with me, and either will do fine win or lose.

    Now I have to disagree. I thought Carrie was very flat last night when she did the song..."United we Stand"..with the other two contestants. She was really off-key. I cringed when she couldn't hit a few of the notes. I think Bo has stayed consistently on tune, and really has the knack for performing/singing.

    You're right, she does have the IT factor. Carrie has had to weather the storm of having Simon run his mouth in her favor. While Simon's word carries no more weight than any of the other judges, he certainly can turn the masses against any particular contestant that he favors. Carrie is just as deserving as Bo and if she should win it would be in spite of Simon, not because of him.
    Bo is also very good. I just can't stand all that running around, flopping the hair in his face and carrying that mic stand. Makes you wonder if he were made to stand perfectly still could he even get a note out.

    He certainly seemed to do just that during his a capella song Tuesday/Wednesday night...

    though i'm a bo fan out of these 2 finalists, i have to say that i thought carrie was trying not to cry when they started singing. it would be hard to sing well when choking back tears.
