    I truly hate his sound and while he may wring out a song or two I think the public will tire of his one trick pony act and he will disappear. The intro to Rocket Man was good, but once he had to rasp *and* sing - boo. He gave me that old Vote for the Worst kind of feeling.

    I was actually wondering if VFTW was back.

    Welp, the teeny bopper vote came through for Laine. No matter, Alejandro is better off not winning (came in second). He did 4 original songs tonight (didn't love the first one) and has built a big fan base. Plus he won't be beholden to the AI record company now and can do his own thing.

    I believe *all* of the finalists on AI sign contracts that put them under the control of 19 Entertainment.

    I couldn't believe Madison came in third. As soon as Laine was revealed to be in the Top Two I knew it was over for Alejandro. Ugh.

    That played out opposite of what I would have preferred. I put Madison #1, but would have been happy with Alejandro winning as well. I wouldn't have even put Laine in the top 10 IMHO but that's why I'm here typing my thoughts on a keyboard to strangers on the internet and not in charge of finding talent for Hollywood.

    I fell asleep watching this after GOT, but I just saw a headline of the winner. My vote would’ve been for Alejandro all the way, but I guess Laine might benefit more from the title of winner.

    I thought it would be 1. Madison, 2. Alejandro, 3. Laine

    Laine was all flash and no substance. I am truly flabbergasted that he won.

    Well, girls vote more than boys, and girls vote for boys-especially 18 year old cute boys-I was going to be happy with either Madison or Alejandro winning-but I too knew that Laine was going to win after Madison was out-oh, well, at least I voted so I can complain!

    I actually thought Madison was pretty shaky last night - and very pitchy on her second song. Tremendous instrument though - will be great when she matures vocally. I actually like Laine when he is doing more down to earth stuff and isn't trying to channel Elvis. But imo Alejandro is simply next level talented and I will listen to his originals.

    Arguable that Laine is one of, if not the weakest, winner in the show's history. He's infinitely more marketable than the other finalists though which is why he won along with the preteen girl vote. Not a chance Alejandro will cotton to touring as a winner. He's much more suited to go at his own pace and do it his way.
