Who else did not miss SIMON. Simon was so ego driven and he made the show negative. He was very cocky and had this I know the best attitude, plus he was so divisive because it seemed the constants always cared about what he said because he was always harsh. This year was positive, light hearted and fun. Simon is too much drama, and that is suffocating. I know people will watch X factor but they will enjoy IDOL more.

Scott isso vocally limited. He can’t sing anything but country. There were too many other more talented singers with greater range in this year’s competition (i.e., James, Casey, and everyone else now that I think about it). He seems like a good kid and I wish him well, but an American Idol??? Not in my book.

For those whose favorite singer wasn’t chosen:
Jennifer Hudson was the 7th runner up in American Idol-

She now has an Academy Award for acting & also won a Grammy for best R&B album.

this guy is so boring, nothing special about him..Lauren was different, and would have been a better choice….in like 6 months scotty will be forgotten..Lauren kinda reminded me Kelly Clarkson, and look at Kelly now, shes the most succesfull american idol to date

ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111111111 Lauren deserved it!

@Lol: Totally disagree. Carrie Underwood is the most successful AI winner to date. Haley and Pia were better than Lauren as far as the female contestants go. I think there is something different and unique about Scotty and he be will have longevity.

Sucks Sucks Sucks Sucks Sucks Sucks Sucks Sucks Sucks Sucks Haley Reinhart should be won !!

@LMAO: So glad someone else noticed that too!!!

khaia! scotty maw???? ka duhtheilo

America has spoken! Great choice. Scotty has star power. ;0)

I’m so happy he won. Not only is he a great singer, but a nice boy. First thing he did after wining? Give thanks to the Lord. Enough of the freak shows in music industry, what we need is real talent, like Scotty. Someone who doesn’t need gimmicks to captivate our attention, just his voice. I hope he stays true to himself and his faith, and that fame doesn’t change him.

yeah scotty won!!!! i like lauren too but im really happy scotty won


WORST SEASON EVER. Is this the result of American Idol or Hee Haw?

I’m surprised how no one is talking about how chummy Lauren and Scotty were. Anyway I think they would be a cute couple and should sing duets together. They weren’t originally my favorites, but I’m happy for them because they were both really sweet/nice.

What a joke this season turned out to be in the end. Scotty McCreepy? Seriously America? And no, that wasn’t a typo. Thank god I didn’t waste my time watching this show or worrying about a rapture this year.

Wow, I didn’t see that one coming. Americans only voted for him because they see him as a good white christian middle of the road everyman (with white and man being the operative words) and not because of his singing ability. A pig farmer from Alabama with a missing tooth and confederate flag tattoo could have entered and they would have made sure he won over the other “multicultural degenerates” on the show.

That’s the same reason Adam Lambert, lost to Chris Whatshisname. Adam, who was obviously more talented lost to the Chris because American Idol isn’t a talent contest, it’s a popularity contest.

The only reason Kelly Clarkson won was because she was in the finale with a “black” guy. If she was standing there with John Smith a conservative blue collar mechanic who sings the songs of the “real America” ie country music, she would have lost.

HELL NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ok, we all saw the season 8 winner and runner-up!
Adam Lambert is famous, and who was that other guy?!?

This show is about luck, the winner rarely gets famous….
