I think Fantasia was a better singer and deserved to win.
But, I have no intention to go to the store and actually BUY the CDs of any of this year contestants. Noone this year impressed me enough so I'd want to have their CDs.
I don't have any desire to go and see them in concert either.
The real success is in the money made AFTER the finals.
So how many of you are going to spend your money on AI3 stuff?
