    I think Adam Lambert lost to some guy named Kris Allen.

    So does that make her the most successful 9th place finisher?

    Er, no, since she finished 10th. As for whether or not she is the most successful 10th (or 9th, for that matter) place finisher, you tell me:
    EJ Day
    Jim Verranos
    Charles Grigsby
    Julia DeMato
    Amy Adams
    Camile Velasco
    Nikko Smith
    Lisa Tucker
    Mandisa
    Chris Sligh
    Gina Glocksen
    Chikezie
    Ramiele Malubay
    Michael Sarver
    Megan Joy
    Didi Benami
    Andrew Garcia
    Katie Stevens
    Naima Adedapo
    Thia Megia
    Pia Toscano
    (This includes the two Season 9 eliminations from the Top 9 after the save, and the two Season 10 eliminations from the Top 10 after the save; also, Season 1 had two eliminations from the Top 10, and in Season 2, Charles Grigsby was eliminated from the Top 11 but there was a disqualification two weeks later, so presumably he was "moved up" to 10th (and put on the tour).)

    This has been discussed in any number of places (probably including here). I think the reason you don't vote people out is, what would probably end up happening would be, people would vote for the singer they thought was the best besides their own favorite (so they could get rid of the competition).

    I think so :p



    I'd also welcome the release of a Pia Toscano "home movie"

    So like an iPod, but bigger?

    Ryan on twitter linked to some celebs that had tweeted about last night. They seem just as baffled as I am

    All shapes and sizes, and the music is free, you don't have to download anything. Occasionally you'll also hear the news and the weather.

    Okay you just seriously made me laugh out loud.

    Actually I think Come Back To Me was his biggest hit. It's the only one I still hear all the time. And of course now he's got the swan song for Idol this season. I really dig it too.

    Battlefield... which IMHO was her best of the bunch.

    The funniest one for me was Daughtry.
    Followed by this when he realized everyone was comparing the two. :p

    You might be right about Come Back to Me. I just remembered him coming out of the box setting a record and getting air play multiple times a day for a long long time. His season was the first season I watched Idol all the way through mostly because of his performances early on.

    Forgot about that one. Don't think it got as much air time as the others though?

    I am pretty sure you know that Don't You (Forget About Me) is a cover of a Simple Minds song. Sounds almost the same as the original except a little grittier voice on the chorus with a little of the 80s polish taken off.

    I guess David Cook has been somewhat successful but the real measure is album #2 after the Idol hype has cooled.

    BTW - The I found this a pretty interesting take on Idol 2011

    It has a link in it to an older interview with Simon that kind of foretells AIs fate this year. I did not know that when the British version of X-Factor came out, the British version of AI was cancelled.

    David Cook's fake-rock voice sounds so forced and fake.

    :rolleyes: :D Of course I knew that. I didn't figure I even had to say it. I'm an 80s girl though so maybe I shouldn't assume.

    Yeah he didn't change it up and maybe that's why I dig it. I'm usually never fond of people messing with my favorite 80s songs too much. Sometimes it's so bad that I cannot believe others like it... i.e. one of my all time favorite songs by one of my all time favorite bands, The Police being remade into WTFever it's supposed to be now by I think Puff Daddy. Travesty! Or how about Marylin Manson doing Sweet Dreams. UGH..

    okay /rant back on subject. :)

    It was the first one I thought of because it's the one that pissed me off the most.
