OK so I didn't watch all year, but what I really want to know is...

MJB's One < or > Lee's BD? Should I make a poll?

Listened to Lee's recorded BD version and it's a 100% better than the live cuts, but it's just not BD without Edge, Adam and Larry backing!

Listened on YouTube to Lee's performance-wow. The song sounded so...80s. Not horrible, but it was interesting-I'm just glad Lee lost some of that Nickelback-y type rasp he'd had early on in the show.

I think I kinda like the live version a bit more than the studio version. Nothing can top U2's original, though, of course.

Watched Crystal's performances, too. She really does seem out of place on this show, doesn't she (I mean that in a good way)? She should've had a deal by now with somebody.

Seriously?

*Goes to investigate YouTube again, watches clip*

Oh, geez, you've GOT to be kidding me, there was actual choreography? Wow... Love the way the guy sorta mumbled half the song. And, "I'll put my pants on right NOW!" .

Shame "The Soup" is a special episode this week, 'cause that is PRIME "Soup" clip material right there. Wonder if they'll mention it next week?

I'm being completely serious when I say Pants on the Ground guy is more talented than 3/4 of the top 24 this year.

Well, that's easy. MJB's One is far better.

I really think that the hate for her cover of the song is more representative of a general distaste for R&B/Hip hop among many U2 fans rather than that the song was poorly done.

I agree. I'm always surprised that it gets that much hate on this site.

I think it's really well-done.

So Lee Dewyze's version of Beautiful Day is currently #3 on iTunes. U2's is #114 so at least some people are downloading the original.

I agree, I really like it, and I like Mary a lot in general. But I know how it's treated around here, and I was curious what kind of response the comp would get.

Wait...does that make me a troll?

Hi. I haven't really been watching this much this year because I've been watching the Prime Ministers debate, something about the Freudian Museum in London or I've been sitting out in the garden. I like that Blonde haired guy because he was fit but when Bret Michaels came on and sang Every Rose Has A Thorn during the final it was obvious that he's voice is measly compared to Brett's. What did you guys think of him? I liked Chrystal as well.

It was nice to see Brett come on the show after all his life threatening health problems.
