Advertisements Wow! No live finale! Budgetary reasons? Anyway, I thought Brandy was chosen for obvious reasons. She's young. She's pretty and most of all she has no southern drawl! Clint would have been a better choice. He has more experience and at 40 yrs old with a wife and kids deserved a break. I have no doubt the exposure is going to help him though. This season was disappointing. Bring back the Celebrity Edition!
