    Yeah -- turn down the volume or hit "mute"! There certainly was no imagination required for that line; he should have sung it as "What do you do when I sing out of tune?" They should have supplied him with a GPS in order to find the right pitch.

    I was disappointed, but not at all surprised, with the results. (I predicted the tiara for Lee.) It was pretty much a repeat of last year's.

    Love love Lee. I thought he sounded great, looked great and was charming.
    I think I could have nailed me and Bobby McGee. Note to self- do people stil listen to that kind of music. I think Lee will be successful. As I have said he is reminiscent of Dave Mathews Band - he sounds very current and marketeable. Simon Cowell chose him to win for heavens sake and we know he makes stars. Crystal - will have her following - I for one - don't like her style or her sound. While people didn't like Lee - I found Crystal screechy.
    But what I did like is that these two were honestly happy for each other and that is what matters.

    Then Crystal sang the line "And try not to sing out of key", as she turned to Lee.

    Final Results

    Your American Idol: Lee DeWyze

    The votes are in, the idol has been crowned. Sorry for the delay in posting these: I foolishly planned today as the travel day as the start to my vacation when I should have known you'd want results!

    Thank you all for a wonderful contest!!

    On a personal note, I appreciate all the thanks people have posted throughout the season, so here's one big corporate "you're welcome" to all of the comments saying that. I'll let you in on a little secret, though: I've had an absolute BLAST doing this and it's me who should be thanking all of you for playing the game and making the thread and the weekly anticipation of the results show so much fun for me. It has been a joy to do this and it would not have been possible without all of you! I will be around next year of course, either as player or maybe doing it again if one of the previous hosts doesn't want to, because this community is such an integral part of what makes AI so fun. So kudos to all of you for a fantastic year!!

    Re: AI9: Prediction Game

    I finished 21st. I reckon that earns me a place in the equipment trailer behind the second bus.

    Thanks so much for doing this all season. It always helps to spice things up.

    Personally, I had way more love for Crystal. I was just betting that America would do a repeat of last year. And it did.

    Thanks so much, jsciv, for all you did with this game.

    Re: AI9: Prediction Game

    Here's a prediction!

    Lee's album will sell even worse than Kris' (which had the worst sales of any Idol winner thus far, so that's a real low to aim for).

    Re: AI9: Prediction Game

    Just as I said in my post-results post in that thread, I fell off the bus after having been firmly on it the whole season! I fell from 6th to 11th.

    Maybe if I run really fast I can hop on? No?

    I let my great love of the Bowersox get in the way of reality, which was that IMO "America" got it wrong, as Ellen said, two years in a row! The polls (and that well known prediction web site) all said Lee would win, but going by the season as a whole and the performances Tuesday night, I just could not wrap my mind around that happening...

    Oh, well. It was really fun -- in many cases more fun than watching the actual show.

    Thank you, jsciv!
