    I picked her as the winner, though I didn't play predictions on this boards, from the beginning. Her vocals really won out this time.

    I realize others may not agree, but I thought she sounded much better than Jennifer Hudson in that duet. By far.

    Haven't watched the show all season but I have heard several of Candice's vocals on youtube from this season. The girl can seriously sing and I was hoping she'd win. I didn't watch the finale last night, either, but I don't find your opinion hard to swallow. I never could understand the big hullabaloo about Jennifer Hudson's voice. I'm sure she is a lovely person, but her singing leaves me cold. I will have to say she was very good in Dreamgirls with that big I'm Not Telling You number, but any other time I have heard her sing , either on AI, or TV performances, I've thought she was just awful. JMHO

    CONGRATS TO CANDICE AND BEST OF LUCK!!!

    I agree with you, and I was a Jennifer Hudson fan back in her season, and for Dreamgirls. But Candice has her beat!

    Jennifer and Candice ...

    I thought their duet was very poor ...

    a chorus of caterwauling.

    I love the sound of Candice's vocals. I think she has control of her vocals and Jhud does not. Jhud when doing a duet seems she tries to out sing her partner with all of that loud wailing she loves to do. I too am not a fan of her vocals. There is something about Jhud that is off putting for me. I am not sure what it is but she rubs me the wrong way.

    I have to mute the tv when those weight watchers commercials come on.

    Have to agree about the Jennifer Hudson comments. I loved her in "Dream Girls", but don't care for the rest of her music since then.

    I do the same thing.

    Congratulations to Candace for winning AI.

    Candice has a much more pleasant tone.

    This is a little difficult to explain. Of the 3 Divas on AI ...I always liked Jennifer best because I thought she was the best still do and her success has proved that point. Jennifer winning an Oscar, and accomplishing so much after being voted off at the wrong time on AI ... is what we used to call "cheaters' proof" ... and I almost feel a bit of that attitude about and from her.

    It's not conceit or arrogance ... it is just that after AI, all her success and then the tragedies in her private/personal life she still has a strong presence and sense of self. My heart goes out to her as my hat is off to her.
