    Excuse me? Every contestant's contract says that, if they make it to Hollywood, they have to sign whatever contracts the producers put in front of them (and the producers have until three months after the finale airs to decide which ones they want to sign). I wouldn't be surprised if Angie didn't sign with 19/Interscope the minute she was eliminated.

    This is how it appears in the Season 12 Release that all contestants had to sign:

    Yep- all of the those that make it to the show are stuck with 19/Interscope unless 19/Interscope doesn't want them.
    And even then I don't think they can sign with anyone else until a month past the end of the tour.

    I fast forwarded through most of the show but watched the J-Lo performance because the dancing looked interesting. The backup dancers were all wearing sort of filmy see-through dresses with corset type tops underneath. One of them, a girl in dark purple, seemed to have lost most of her corset top early on so when she put her arms up, we got a clear view of boob through the thin dress material. I seem to be the only one who noticed that...not sure what it says about me.

    It says you're the only one that didn't FF through L Lo's performance.

    A 27-post thread on an Idol finale. Record for brevity?

    I usually post pretty often about AI, and I don't think I've posted once this season. For one thing, I fell way behind on watching, so my comments would have been stale, and this season just wasn't very compelling. I liked the girls, and I think Candice is a deserving winner. Definitely the best singer out of the top 10 or 12 or whatever it was. I wasn't into Kree. Candice/Angie would have been a better finale.

    I think Idol has gone downhill every year for the last several years. Yet I continue to watch (so far).

    I thought the finale show was one of the worst ever. People are always saying that Idol needs to skew younger, yet they keep trotting out Motown week and Beatles week and stuff like that, and then on the finale you have Frankie Valli and Aretha, and Aretha is just up on a video screen. The only really engaging performance was Angie/Jessie J (interesting how it seemed like Angie got treated better than Kree in terms of performances, screen time, etc). Candice and Jennifer Hudson was good, but it seemed like J-Hu was trying to "win" the duet, which she did. (I like Jennifer and I know that's how she always sings, but it didn't really work for showcasing Candice.)

    Out of this group, my guess is that the most successful will be Angie and Janelle. I can see Janelle going the Kellie Pickler route and doing well.

    To me, the star of the season was Keith Urban, who was a great judge. He had to go first in his comments nearly every time, and usually said something thoughtful and helpful, and then the other three judges would either restate his comments or agree/disagree with them. They rarely had original thoughts. But I think Keith is too "normal" for Idol to bring him back.

    I pretty much agree with all of this, except that I thought this season was better than the last couple seasons. My wife really liked Kree but I don't see her as a big star. I think Amber had the most potential to be great, but wasn't quite there yet.

    I think Amber was "marketable" as they say (meaning hot), and at her best she could throw off that "young Whitney" vibe, but at the same time, she is not in the same league as young Whitney, so I don't know if she ever becomes a big deal. It also seemed to me like Candice and Angie "wanted it" more than Amber. Maybe it was just nerves or something but there were times when she didn't seem into performing and like she didn't really want to be there. So I guess I question whether she has the drive to become a big star. But yeah, she's young and maybe that will change.
