"Tons of surprises, but it wouldn't be 'American Idol' without it, would it?" Cowell told MTV News. "At the end of the day, I could go out and find 12 great singers, but that's kind of boring. The fact that there's people there who shouldn't be there makes it 'American Idol.' "
Did anyone catch the one time Steven was doing his usual mouthing to the camera while Ryan was talking? (Which, by the way, is rude, but it's kind of funny too). I think he got reprimanded by somebody off-camera. He seemed to have some kind of subtle reaction, stopped mouthing words, and actually seemed a little pouty. I can't remember what point of the show it was, though. Somewhere in the middle, I think.
I hope Haley does not make it to the final two. It would be a better final two if Lauren was in it with Scotty. I wanted Haley in the final 10 but there is just something about her. Sometimes I like her and other times I don't. PLUS I think one thing that bothers me is the nasty look that she gives the judges when they critique her. It is like she thinks she is all that and the judges are wrong. What would be wrong with at least considering what they tell you. Then take what you can use and forget the rest.
I am a fan of rock...and not of country at all, but I am HOPING for a Scotty/Lauren finale..because I feel they are by far the most talented.

I'm a fan of the best singer..and it's not Haley. Either of the others is fine to win it.
