"American Idol" is drawing to a close for its 10th season, and you don't even care, do you?

Simon was the whole show
the judges screwed up the show and the contestants.

the judges blew too much smoke up the contestants azzes and tried too hard to influence the voting with their azz kissing.....

Randy has brain damage from cutting off the blood to his brain wearing skinny jeans on his wide azz.

J Lo tried to influence everyone to gyrate and comvort on stage instead of singing....much like her videos.

tyler is just a brain dead pervert.

Lauren is actually the better pure voice than Scotty. Lauren is a singer not a preformer. Scotty is both.

but, then Pia was the best voice of all.

this one boils down to a popularity contest rather than the best American Idol singing talent.

regardless of the winner....If Scotty gets the right agent and will put in the time.....
he will become the most lasting and biggest money making talent of all the American Idol winners.
Country music is big big business, and Scotty is a natural country singer, even without a dumb cowboy hat.....

I believe you are right in that it's all about who gets the most votes. I put it to the test.. I tried to vote multiple times on my cell phone, and I was only allowed to vote "one time".

Whereas.. when I attempted to vote multiple times on my phone(landline); I was able to do so as many times as I wanted to. There is definately a problem with the voting system, and this needs to be corrected.

Yay!!! Way to Scotty!!,,, soooo happy he won, he deserved it so much!, his voice is incredible, and the talent he has at only 17 is amazing!, Lauren did awesome also, and truly know without a doubt they will both go on to become country legends.
And for those of you that don't like country, so what? who cares? I don't like metal or heavy rock, but I still admired James and all the hard work and talent he put into his music, he is a great kid, and I wish him all the best of luck in metal, will I listen or buy his music? NO, can't stand it, but that doesn't mean he isn't good, he is, and I do wish him the best with those of you who like this type of music, so really who could care less if you don't like country? obviously enough of us out here do, and will support Scotty and lauren and keep bringing millions of dollors into the economy buying thier music, and keep country music as hot as ever in the country,
I couldn't stand Haley towards the end, her attitude really sucked and turned me off big time, she should have went home in the last 4, not James, that just wasn't right, but she didn't, so be it.
Congrats Scotty!!,, and good luck to you and Lauren in your journey in life!
