    Maybe the day change had something to do with the ratings decline for the finale. Otherwise, the show is either 1 or 2 in ratings all season...so Fox isn't going to cancel it. If you don't like it, speak with your remote and don't watch

    Because a lot of people actually like the type of music the WGWG plays. John Mayers success wasn't a fluke. People LIKE the music. And it doesn't help when the judges heap tons of praise on a little girl with a great voice but no originality. One whom America voted off in the first place. It turns the voters off.

    I still don't understand why they ripped Pia over and over for singing ballads but never said a word to Jessica. She did one upbeat song (by Gloria Estefan) early in the season and it was her worst performance. It was dreadful. After that, they pretty much left her alone.

    Jessica reminds me of a copy cat singer. When she sing Whitney, she sings like Whitney. When she sings Michael Jackson, she sings like Michael Jackson. She needs a little bit of time to come into her own, in my opinion.

    I had noticed that when she sang with Jennifer H....she adopted Jennifer's style. She is a derivative singer....not original

Nah. I watched for the Celebrities last night. We have had the same result for the last 5 years same guy different guitar.
    No, I wasn't surprised either. I didn't watch it as much as most people did in this thread. If I don't like a show, I don't watch the show. That's why I muted the judges most of the time.I think it appeals to the young( and the young at heart). AI gave me Adam Lambert Kelly Clarkson, Daughtry and a few others I really like. I think P2 may have a good career, its a starting point for him, and that's always a bonus.

    I saw part of Duets last night, and I liked what I saw. So there is something for everyone.

    I agree with those upthread who suggests the show needs revamping...big time. IMO they need to limit the votes, though their big numbers on votes would be destroyed if they did that. But, there should be away that a caller can get through at least one vote when calling constantly for 4 hours. If not, there is a problem. That should be addressed. It's insulting to viewers to encourage them to vote when they cannot get through.

    Then there are the judges that should be replaced. The rules and set up need to be changed to refresh the show. I'm sure a little time and creative thinking could help on those issues.

    It has gotten rather stale.... after so many seasons of "after the break..." it gets kind of blah. I think that's why I didn't watch it this season. I'm tired of the judges and the format. Time to change it up a bit.

If not it is going to continue to lose quality contestants,viewers to shows that have more diversity in contestants and you don't have the feeling its been rigged since day one.

    As it stands right now If you are toting a guitar you may as well find another show to audition for. I mean really what is the point?

    I really think it's the voting that needs to be overhauled. Who cares if they got the highest number of votes on finale night? It's viewership that's important. And I think a lot of people (like me) are tired of having their favorites eliminated in favor of the WGWG, who is getting tons of text votes from the young girls who have lots of time and energy to vote all night. I had 3 favorites, and Joshua was the last of them. I had no desire to watch Tuesday, and I didn't. Can't resist the finale results night, though.

    I don't see the show being canceled anytime soon. The finale may have been the least watched of all the AI finales, and I don't know how it stacked up to other shows this week, but every other AI show this season has been among the top 5 watched each week. FOX would be complete idiots to cancel it. But they should take note of the decline in viewers.

    Exactly Idol is hung up on how many votes they have. What the fail to see is as their vote total goes up their ratings go down. why most of those votes are not legit. They are done by autodialer, people using skype to vote in other timezones,etc. The voting is what is killing this show. All these fangirls cooing over these little guys with guitars and getting a kick out of jacking the vote with texts,emails etc.

    Well the judges could always do more than show favoritism to anyone besides the WGWG by making sure none of them made it to the final 12. Or they could make their votes only count for 1 fifth of a real vote. Or they could ban teenage girls from voting. cute happy shrug.gif

    Oh wait. I'm not a teenage girl and I would have voted for Phillip so that might not work. Hmmmm, I got it. They could simply give out fake phone #s for any WGWG.

    I'm surely not saying that only teenagers liked P2. There are several people on here who like him, and that's fine. I've voted for the WGWG in the past - Cookie, for one (although the ironic thing is the teenagers liked Archie that year). But I think the teenagers have gotten too much control of the vote now. It's almost like VFTW, except now it's VFTWGWG - and they're a lot more powerful than VFTW ever dreamed to be.
