Heh, that was kind of an odd comment from your husband, beli...

Anywho, I bet it's gonna come down to Fantasia and Diana (there's still a chance for a black person to win so long as Fantasia sticks around. Besides, Ruben won last year, and he's a black singer). As for predicting who will actually win, though...I'm not so sure. Diana's certainly got a good chance, but a lot of people do seem to like Fantasia, too, so.... Who knows.

I just can't believe that in about a week and a half we'll have our next American idol announced. Man, this season went by fast.

Hey, yeah, I guess I know my husband so I didnt think. His girlfriend before me was black and he has been out with just about every other colour of girl as well. There are no boundaries. Hes a boy.

Whos Ruben? I thought that annoying Clay person won last year. The only one of the American Idols that have had any hits down here is Kelly.

Ruben was the winner of last year's show-Clay was the runner-up. I know it sure seems like he won, though, 'cause he's been getting much more attention than Ruben this past year.

Oh, yeah? Yeah, she was pretty popular here, too.

Oh we have the same situation here. Guy won but Shannon gets all the airplay, publicity etc. Anybody would think Shannon won.

Kelly doesnt have any hits anymore though. I personally didnt like her songs. Too bland for me.

LOL, yeah, it's kinda funny, isn't it? A lot of people, looking back now, keep saying that Clay really should have won last year-perhaps that's why he's gotten so much more attention. There was even talk about the voting being fixed or messed up in some other form or something from last year-it was all crazy. Was that the case with the people where you are?

Kinda makes some voters from last year feel good, huh? "Well, I voted for so-and-so and he won, but the other one's getting more attention, so apparently my vote doesn't really matter".

My sister's a big Clay fan, though, so she's pretty happy with all the attention he gets. He's coming to the fair in our old town later this year, and we're planning on taking her up there to see him.

Yeah, I couldn't get into her much, either. And her songs got SO OVERPLAYED, too. When "A Moment Like This" and "Miss Independent" were at their most popular here, I couldn't turn anywhere without hearing those songs, and the stations played them like, two or three times within one hour alone. It eventually got to the point where I just went, "Aaaargh!" and changed the station each time they were on (unless my sister was in the room or car or whatever, in which case, I had to leave it there because she liked those songs).

There wasnt any vote rigging allegations, not with Idol anyway. There has been with just about everyother reality show. Guy does have the better voice, hes just bland. He needs someone to pick better songs for him.

Shannon is very Australian. And he really cant sing. Not that thats ever held a pop star back before

That Miss Independant song. Puke. Gawd she likes to scream. Oh well, at least the 3 girls that are left on American Idol arent screamers. Yah!

Yeah, they've always gotta have some controversy or something somewhere-keeps people watching. .

Hehe, yeah. Screaming out a song doesn't automatically mean you're a good singer (something some of the people who auditioned for this year would've done well to note).

Yeah, at least there's that. At least they can control their voices (and even though Jasmine's had some off nights, she's still got a good voice-I'm envious of her and Diana, they're both younger than me and sing better than I do! LOL). .

Heh, well, I haven't actually heard this Shannon person sing yet, so I personally couldn't say, but thanks, anyway. .

I am surprised Jasmine made it this far, and yes I would say the whole state of Hawaii is voting for her. Latonya should have made it to the final. I cannot get excited over Fantasia.

I feel the same way about this joyfulgirl. She does not have what it takes to be an American Idol.

I don't think Jasmine'll be around next week, personally. Yes, the whole state of Hawaii may be voting for her, but...I dunno, I just don't see her sticking around for the final show next week.

I do feel kinda bad for her, though. She didn't do a good job tonight overall (her first song was probably the best of them all), but she seems like such a nice girl, and I just feel kinda bad for her.

I have to say, Fantasia really impressed me tonight. I thought she was the best of the three.

Meh. Tomorrow night will be interesting, as always.
