If you don't like her music, you don't like her music and I'm not going to post Since You've Been Gone to try and convince you that you suddenly like her.
Oh, I'll bite.

Two of my favorite performances of hers:

Up to the Mountain

Already Gone

I think a good amount of former Idols have decent music careers, while not selling millions of records, they do enough to make a living.

I never found Pia to be that exciting of a singer. Ballad week after week... I am still trying to figure out how anyone could have gotten excited with her perfomance of "I'll Stand by You." It did nothing for me.

Casey, on the other hand, is quite an interesting artist. I look forward each week to see what twist he puts into a song.

I was hoping Paul would go home. I guess his "charming smile" is melting the hearts of the American women...

I must say I was surprised but not outraged Pia left. Yes, she had a great voice but she bored me to tears. I just don't like her style of music.

At this point, I see the final being Scotty and Lauren. Personally, my favorites are Casey, Paul and (surprisingly) Haley.

I do think Idol has an issue with keeping women on the show. Even last year with the weakest male talent they couldn't get a female win. Crystal was robbed, absolutely robbed. The year prior, Allison who I adored only made top 4.

Oh and Kelly rocks. Here's a cover of ISHFWILF

"We sort of figured since there were more females watching this show the votes were going to be more for the guys," Megia, 16, the youngest contestant in "Idol" history, said during a conference call with reporters.

And while she made a point to give props to the "incredible" guy singers left on the show, Megia admitted that the ladies of "Idol" had discussed the potential pitfalls of the large female voting bloc and were a bit worried about how that might impact their stay in the leaky "Idol" mansion.

"[We were] a bit intimidated by all the girls watching the show and knowing that their votes are going to be going for guys," said Megia, who was done in on Thursday night's elimination show by her tepid rendition of Elton John's "Daniel," which she dedicated to her older brother.

I said that awhile ago, now even the contestants are saying it.
the young girl voters are skewing the results.

Well, it seems to be more of a recent trend. Who was the last female who won? Was it Jordin? That was a while ago.

Wow, that cover's really good. ISHFWILF is near impossible to sing...

I really wanted a girl to win this year. I'm getting sick of guy singers.

Agree. Paul's voice is like nails on a chalkboard to me.

Exactly! Gvox I thought you said you loved her voice. A women who was on AI a few weeks ago was Fantacia. When I first saw her some years ago I thought she was mostly shouting but I was much more impressed with her this time round because she was actually singing! She reminded me a little bit like Macy Gray.

I forgot that Jennifer Hudson was even a contestant much less! So I guess I'm a dumb dumb.

Also, that Already Gone live by Clarkson was pretty damn good. Thanks for that misfit
