I don't blame Simon for throwing negative feedback for Clay to change the outcome of the show and add at least a tweak of competition, seriously. Frenchie and Clay? I think that'd be tough and exciting, both personifying amazing talent over image.
FOX booting Frenchie might be one of the most regretful choices ever from a television company. Argh, AI2 would be twice as fun to watch if she was around...
My predictions for the remaining finalists to possibly win:
#5: Kimberley L.
#8: Kimberly C.
