    Crystal was better, but I like Lee and wish him all the best. I know he’s going to get so much hate for something that was ultimately out of his control. He seems like a nice guy.

    Not deserving. He sings out of tune. too bland.

    Crystal is a better singer and has more personality. She will be a bigger star.

    I am so happy for Lee. He is very talented & deserved to win. He seems like a very nice guy as well. For those who don’t like him, just don’t buy his album & turn the channel when he comes on. It’s as simple as that. I really wish him the best & I hope his album becomes a great success.

    Jack Says:

    It’s better to lose American Idol than to win because of the winner’s curse, you’ll just be stuck in the Idol bubble with just an Idol fanbase and lots of Idol obligations. This year is unfortunate for both of them though. Both will fade really fast. Lee is like lukewarm water and I can’t see Crystal breaking into the mainstream charts, she has no relevance or se.x appeal, she’s like a mommy. Allison Iraheta was way, way, way better than her. Her voice was better and her one Slowride duet was sexier and more vocally mindblowing than all Crystal’s performances put together.
