I'm glad she got to honor the veterans such as those in her family by using her voice and doing it well. I was negative about her invitation in the beginning, but now it makes more sense. I hope her passion for singing carries her throughout her life in whatever form it takes.

I am a person who approaches any military personnel I see in uniform to thank them
personally for their service to our country-not just on memorial day. My comment was not about Memorial Day but about Jessica and how the judges always
promoted her ad nauseum. I'm aware that many people like to hear Jessica sing. I don't.
I know someone who went to a Tayor Hicks concert a year or so ago and they said it was one of the best concerts they have ever been to. Taylor went non stop for almost 2 hours singing and dancing, they said it was very high energy (and this was not in Las Vegas).

I just finished watching the finale performance show and the results show. I have to admit, Jessica sang beautifully... each and every time. She does have an impressive voice IMO. Phillip is certainly not that great of a singer. Based purely on singing ability, it's a wonder he made it to the top 5. He seems to be a nice kid and the win will certainly help him. Jessica, IMO, didn't need to be "the winner". With her voice, Jessica will have a very impressive career.
Glad the season is over and hopefully next year we'll have a winner who is not another WGWG
Have a great summer everyone!
Personally I find these humane mouse traps rather ineffective. Better to lay down some glue and when you hear the critter scream you take a shovel to his head.

Personally, I don't think the producers of AI really care that much if the chosen one is a recording success. Sure, it's would be nice to find another Kelly Clarkson or Carrie Underwood, but at the end of the day, they make a ton of money from the show itself and from the tour that follows. Yes, the overall viewership was down this year, but they still won their timeslot every week including the finale. That translates into advertising dollars, so even if the winner ends up being a dud, I think they are doing okay.
