that's what the song is about, right? I might be misremembering that.
I've heard it said that that song is in reference to some sort of relationship struggle, yes-I think Neil said he wrote it after he had a fight with his wife one day. I myself never interpreted the song that way, and find it quite comforting, but that's just me *Shrugs*.

Top 3 of the night:

1. Crystal, without a doubt (she got me all teared up. Siobhan, that's how you do a song that kinda forces you to not move around a lot)
2. Mike (I wish his vocals had been a little more powerful, I think that would've drove the message home a little more, but he took a song I don't like and made it likable, so yay)
3. Lee. I've normally not been all that big on his sound-reminds me too much of a Nickelback-y type artist, and I don't care for that type of music at all. But tonight, he sounded really nice on his song.

Aaron's mention of singing "I Believe I Can Fly" when he was a small child made me feel old. And I completely forgot about the song Siobhan did-holy teenage years flashback, wow. She sang that song well, but she just sounded like she was forcing the controlled vocals a bit too much. Crystal just sounded so much more natural.

Holy crap, Crystal. She is amazing. For serious, yo. I think she and Adam are tied for the most talented contestants ever on the show. Wow. Just wow.

I actually didn't watch tonight, but will probably catch it later on the interwebs. Sounds like Crystal had a good 'un.

In my opinion, Crystal won the evening hands down. Lee and Michael are close behind though. I do not get the love affair with Casey though. When is he going to break out of his comfort zone??? I could go to any nightclub and bar and find other bands and singers that sound just like him...

When Crystal cried at the end of People Get Ready, she won the finale. They should just give her the prize.

Anybody else notice that when they did the recap of the performances, Crystal had a different (non-crying) ending than the one we just saw. I guess they decided to put in a rehearsal instead of the weepy one she did for the actual performance. It was a little disconcerting.

^They actually always use the dress rehearsal footage for the recaps. The producers say they don't have time to edit the live performances in time for the end of the live show.

Hmmm. I didn't know that. Makes sense though.

It makes me a little bit sick that, for thousands of kids across the country, this bastardized Mary J. Blige shit will be the first version of "Stairway of Heaven" they've ever heard.
