I'm surprised nobody said it so I will. KREE IS AN IDIOT! If you win a coin toss, go last. That way you close the show. She gave that final moment to Candice when it could have been hers.
I feel like they kept the judges quiet because they know America is over them. It's obvious they're all getting canned so they were minimized.
IMO Candice won the night, but Kree got my votes. Why? Because I'm sick of the judges' pandering plus I'm more likely to buy music by Kree (although not that likely since I'm not a fan of female vocalists in general). I also think there's more of a place for Kree in today's music which makes her more relevant. I do not think she will win, but she did get my 127 votes (50 on 2 different facebook accounts and 27 call in votes - and no I didn't count - the iphone tells me how many times I called the number).
This was such a lackluster season overall because there was too much judges manipulation. It started early on when they started sending home male contenders, and it kept on through this week with the judges campaigning for Candice. This season compares to season 3 in terms of judges manipulation and pandering. If they don't stop this next year, the show will be done for pretty much everyone. I'm certainly not up for a repeat next year. I hope TPTB read what we're saying and get back to basics. Fox will keep it around because it's still one of their highest rated shows. Look at how long the Simpsons have been on and it played out years ago. But it will have to work hard to get back the magic of yesteryear.
Oh and neither coronation song is anywhere near "Home." I think P2 is safe with his record of best selling winner song.
