    I cannot imagine the discomfort LaP must feel with that head of braids complete with pounds of extra hair and decorative jewelry.

    I like the final three and would be fine with any of them winning. I am sure Dalton will be 3rd place and La'Porsha will win. Although Trent should. This is the first year I have actually liked all of the final 4.

    Borchetta and the judges bombed picking songs. Neither one picked a good song for Dalton and, seriously Borchetta? Make La'Porsha sing a song she is so against? Not a good idea.

    I have never quite understood the appeal of Dalton, other than good-looking/seems like a nice kid/lots of personality. But I feel like it's likely that Trent will be the winner, because he came from behind at the end (similar to how Kris Allen surged at the end and won, even though "everybody", including me, just KNEW Adam Lambert would win). The same thing happened with Lee Dewyze, when Crystal Bowersox was the front runner all along.

    The difference is that in those years I was very disappointed that Adam and Crystal were beaten by (in my opinion) singers who were not nearly as good. This time I actually prefer the come-from-behind contestant.

    While La' Prosha is a wonderful singer there is something about the pitch of her 'glory' notes that just makes me cringe slightly. I also can't imagine listening to a La' Porsha album, and being able to recognize the different songs without a space between them.

    The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's too late to stop reading it.

    Ryan definitely said LaPorsha was in the bottom two.

    You're right, I just went back and listened. Interesting.

    Mackenzie Bourg was on Kelly and Michael this morning singing his original song, Roses. I couldn't understand a word except Roses are Red. But, he played a nice acoustic guitar. He said the Idol folks were gracious enough to let him record it for itunes.

    That was nice. I hope his fans continue to support him. He seems like a genuinely nice and talented guy.

    I think you have to enjoy the indie punk pop thing to really appreciate Dalton. I love him, but I also think Pete Wentz is a musicsl genius.

    The only reason I hate to see LaP win is thst the judges have pimped her so hard all season. It's like Fantasia all over again. For that alone I prefer Trent, but I think LaP is a lovely and gracious woman who is quite likable.

    Now as for the final comment, I think Adam is indeed the most talented contestant not to win Idol. However Kris Allen was no slouch, and he came on at exactly the right time. To me him winning would be like Bo beating Carrie as she was the chosen one but both were talented. I do think Kris was able to benefit from a supportive small town which has always been an advantage for Southern contestants.

    Regarding Crystal, I think that was simply America telling the judges to shove it and not give them their way. Simon shoved her down our throats worse than the judges have done with LaP this year. I don't think people were voting for Lee as much as they were against the judges and their chosen one. That was the season of rebellion.

    Just my 2 cents.

    If you watched the retrospective on the first night of this week, Nigel Lythgoe let it be known that Carrie never lost a week of the voting & that the season was never in doubt. She was the winner from the git go. So, she was certainly the chosen one & continues to be.
