Don't blame us, remember what Char posted, it may have been preplanned from the beginning. Somebody told me a CD is coming out and the track list was released this week. It had the final 12 on it, and their songs were listed in the order they were voted off- leaving Carrie #1. I don't believe the voting is really used, it's just a ploy to get more people interested. It's a script from the beginning, the honchos behind the scene choose the winner.

I feel sad today about Bo. I wanted him to be the one, but at least there is a recording contract out there for him.

I figured after Randy of all people, said he thought Carrie would win it, that the judges know that it is not our calls that make this thing happen.

Can you imagine how crazy that crowd would have went if Bo was announced as the winner!

It would have been this instead of this , Bo even had to encourage the audience to give it up for Carrie at the end.

Anyway I suppose she needed the AI recording contract more than Bo did, he probably had one in the works weeks ago, but it still would have been nice for the most talented person to win.

I really think they let Carrie win because she was more marketable in a generic way, more the image of the show. Bo was way too cool. Simon once called him the 'anti idol' because he was the type of guy who usually hates the show and is against everything it stands for. But that's why it would have been so cool to have him win.

Absolutely. Bo's too cool to be an American Idol so in some ways I'm glad he lost because now he won't have the uncool Idol image haunting him although people will still remember that he was 2nd. It would've been nice to have him win, though, just to shake the show up and possibly open it up to more rock star types, male and female. Maybe that will still happen.

^ that pictures is of Courtney Love and her daughter Frances Bean Cobain.

[q]from The Miami Herald.com
Posted on Fri, May. 27, 2005

A mother's Love

Courtney Love swapped her grunge-rock image to enjoy a decidedly all-American pastime with her 12-year-old daughter, Frances Bean, reports Hellomagazine.com.

Frances, Courtney's child with late Nirvana front man Kurt Cobain, held hands with her mom as they arrived for the final of American Idol in Los Angeles.

The 40-year-old star kissed Frances Bean tenderly on the forehead before they took side-by-side seats for the finale.

It has been a difficult couple of years for the twosome -- Courtney's highly publicized overdose in 2003 led to her losing custody of Frances Bean amid a number of other legal woes.

But in January 2005, after regaining full parental rights, Love said in a statement: ``Life is about choices, and I've chosen to move forward with my life in a healthy and positive way.''[/q]

Word to everything in this paragraph. Carrie, though a talented singer, has no personality, no charisma. She is easily malleable for the American Idol Svenaglis. Whereas, Bo has tons of personality and probably has some definite ideas of how he wants to direct his career.

Well, he's my American Idol.
