this will be the first season for me where either one of the finalists would be awesome. I love both Lee and Crystal...

I agree. I think many of the fangirl votes were probably split between Lee and Casey and now with Casey gone I have to think that those that were voting for Casey will now jump on the Lee bandwagon.

That would probably work out fine for Crystal - a year after last year's finale, who the heck is even thinking about Kris Allen?

^This!

I agree... it's a win-win situation for her too.. In fact it almost seems like the runner-ups have a more successful career than the winner does..

Not attacking your comment here, this just inspired me to take a look at how that winner vs. runner-up dynamic has broken down over the years.

Kelly Clarkson v. Justin Guarini - The winner here has had the more successful career, obviously. Steve Carell ain't screaming "JUSTIN GUARINI!" when he gets his chest waxed in that movie.

Ruben Studdard v. Clay Aiken - Not sure about total record sales (although they're probably close) but I would say that more people around the country are familiar with the name Clay Aiken than Ruben Studdard. He seems to have had more mainstream pop culture exposure. But, all in all, I'd say this is a wash.

Fantasia Barrino v. Diana Degarmo - Oh, god. Not even close. Fantasia was on tour with Kanye for a while, was in The Color Purple on Broadway, got her own show, etc. No one has any idea what Diana Degarmo has done, or if she's still alive.

Carrie Underwood v. Bo Bice - Ummm, yeah.

Taylor Hicks v. Katherine McPhee - Neither have had successful recording careers, but I think McPhee is maybe more in the public consciousness at this point (although barely) because of her recent attempts to break through as an actress. But this is probably a wash.

Jordin Sparks v. Blake Lewis - Sparks has had a couple of big hits, both here and overseas, and Lewis has not. End story.

David Cook v. David Archuleta - Don't know who has sold more. However, I think these two are both at the same levels of popularity/success among their markets. Another wash.

Kris Allen v. Adam Lambert - As Cori said, people care way more about Glambo than they do Kris, at least right now.




So, really, looking at it, I think the winners maybe have had more success overall than the runners up. But I'm just bored and splitting hairs. It's very close. That being said, I really really really want Crystal to beat Lee. Peace out.

But they you also should look at some of the random non-runners-up, like Chris Daughtry.

Daughtry has indeed had major success. Elliott Yamin had some too.

I watched Simon Cowell on Oprah and he said the two contestants he knew for certain, based on their auditions, that would be successful were Fantasia and Carrie Underwood.

Don't feel bad. It's a good song written by The Script.
