I don't think it was rigged. If they had been aiming for the blond, hazel eyed country girl over (insert whatever you think applies) then it wouldn't have been Fantasia, Reuben, Clay, or Kelly in any of the previous contests.

Carrie won because she was the best, most consistant performer. There's an audience for her and I think she'll branch out a little as she gets her confidence and she'll lean more towards Shania Twain / crossover. Idol will likely "groom" her to cross over for the broader sales and reach. That'll be good for her.

I wish them both well. It was a tough competition finally.

They say it's not over 'til the fat lady sings.

Guess that explains the Star-Spangled Banner reprise on the final show.

Yeah what was that? Who was singing that? I didn't tune into this season until late - but still - random.

I think you're right, squinney. And Carrie is much more "groomable" than Bo would have been. Actually, she seemed to be getting her feet under her in the last couple of weeks. She may yet mature into a good performer. She's still green.

Re: Star Spangled Banner, we didn't know what to do with that!

Bear: "Ah, that's mean. I can't believe they're doing that to her."

Me: "Yeah, that's what I was thinking. But, she doesn't seem to be offended."

Son: "Maybe she thinks she's singing well and doesn't think they're making fun of her."

(standing ovation)

Me: "Well, hopefully it wasn't done in a mean spirit. At least they are giving her a standing O and look at her beaming. Good for her."

Bear: "Let's hope she never figures it out."

They had already featured her on their "Worst Of" segment so I assumed she knew they didn't think she was good. She looked lots better and sang somewhat better, but was still kinda ... pitchy.

I agree with Bear, I thought it was mean

It will free up some time for Pamela Anderson's new show.

<I accidentally sat through about 60 seconds of it, got a glimpse of the main attraction(s), and heard them use the words rack, wood, hard, and come several times each ... in the first minute.

Talk about your lowest common denominator.

Benny's flaunted his T&A but it's always f-u-n-n-y.

Will Bo still come out with a recording contract from this (or the starring role in a "Jesus Christ Superstar" revival?)

Bo -- get rid of the mike! It looks like you want to shove it up somebody's a**.

It seems almost un-American, un-male, & un-everything else we hold near and dear ... but they're really not that great anymore.

They're sort of like over-filled water balloons and she seems to be morphing into some kind of Loni Anderson/Zsa Zsa Gabor/Brigitte Bardot siliconized mess ... with hepatitis C, according to her.

How much Viagra will it take to address that imagery? Twisted Evil

Oh, that's just great -- as a teenager we were told that masturbating would cause us to go blind. Now it's Viagra.

When you are working with Pam you need to make sure to use the smallest and most familiar words you can use.

And don't shout because the sound echoes off those things and gets garbled.

I've stayed away from this thread as we see American Idol on Friday's in the UK and I didn't want to know who won.

I think Carrie probably deserved to win. I can't see her doing what our most recent winner, Michelle McManus, did. She won and we've not heard from her since.

Do you really still get to see Benny Hill?
