    Again #1comment, about 8 million people watched it, probably you watched it too. The judges performance was GREAT. Can’t wait until next year for the new American Idol. Love the three judges, especially Keith Urban.

    OMG! That performance TOTALLY SUCKED!!! How in the world did Jennifer Lopez ever become a singer?? A screeching cat in heat sounds better than she does. Seriously, AI producers should be arrested for allowing her to sing. And what happened to Harry? He USE to be a good singer. For all his ‘technically’ preaching he does, he should sound a whole lot better than what he did. The only one that sounded decent was Keith. I’ll give him props for actually being a legitimate singer. I’m sorry, no sane person can listen to that & think that sounded good. You all need to go get your hearing checked. (I’m still shaking my head in unbelief that anybody would allow JLo to sing. That is a crime.)

    Keith saved it with his vocals and amazing guitar playing… Not quite LB, but darn close! Well done, Keith!

    The beginning of that performance was horrible. Either Harry was off key or the others were and he had to compensate. J lo performed to the extent of her vocal talent (she’s a dancer first, an actress second). Her vocal talent might not even get her to Hollywood on Idol. It seemed like her mic was rigged with some auto tuning to help her out. I couldn’t help but thinking of Kermit the frog when I saw her on the piano singing. The performance did get better at the end but I believe even the judges would have been critical of that one!

    Didn’t care for it at all when JLo was singing on top of piano but Keith Urban saved the rest of the performance. Ended up really enjoying performance.

    Yuck! Caleb is the worst winner ever! Even worse than Candice! Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeew!

    She Stinks! Says:

    Look as JHO trying to steal the spotlight and try to distract you from the fact that she cannot sing. Harry and Keith must of been horrified to have to perform with that no talent HO from the 90s. This is shameful. JHO is truly awful. This is a disgrace.

    She actually sounded great live here, wow, shocked to say the least. Fun performance.

    I love that song and jennifer have a sweet beautiful voice.

    jane Says:

    Keith Urban rocked this one and totally stole this performance. He was born to perform. JLO thought the whole act was about her and was a total annoyance spinning around with her little tambourine trying so hard to be cute. She was just an annoyance.

    That Was A Video Says:

    They did not sing live on American Idol last night. The public was looking at a VIDEO. It was on instagram and the judges performance and Jlo’s were ALL taped the night before and that is probably why JLO’s voice was doctored. They had a chance to edit that video and take all the flaws out of JLO’s voice, and that baby sound was not her real voice, and we all have to know that. Her performance in her sparkly blue attire was also pre-recorded and shown on a video.

    Man, you guys commenting are harsh! This was THE BEST performance of the season!!! All 4 were great, looked as if they were having so much fun, and pulled it off to perfection! I was blown away and in total awe by the end. Harry, Jennifer and Randy are so talented, deserve their fame…keith is beyond phenomenal!!! Thanks, AI, for the gift of that performance.

    I had fun watching last night. Never saw their season end show before. I liked it!

    Why was Jlo orange though ?

    maclen Says:

    Yes, it was amateur night on Idol last night…the so called “talent” judges “pretaping” their performance the night before…just in case they sucked. They should have taken a few more takes…they were unsuccessful.

    >>>>Man, you guys commenting are harsh! This was THE BEST performance of the season!!! >>>>>

    @mj. This show was supposed to be about the contestants, and not about the judges, and for this entire season it has been the JLO show, with the cameras diverting back to her face everytime a contestant would perform.

    And last night, JLO performing on a family show trying so hard to promote herself because her album comes out June 17th, in a skimpy outfit, humping the floor and slinging her wig around spasmatically like she was dancing at a strip club. She was paid $17 million to judge live talent, yet she had the nerve to have her performance pre-recorded and presented on a video, because she has to lipsync.

    Hopefully she does not come back to AI next season, but if she has something else to promote for herself, she will.

    As I just said…it was “amateur night” on Idol last night among the cast of this pathetically lame show . And THIS perfectly reflects the “quality” of the show…

    …EVEN seacrest “wets himself” on stage on this pitifully dreadful show.

    Carolyn Says:

    I thought that the show last night was very entertaining and that the judge collaboration was great. I couldn’t care less what the same old Urban haters say about it. They are so predictable. I was happy that 10 million people were watching, that Nicole and Sunday were there for Keith, and that the show will be back for another season, hopefully with Keith on board. You can see how much he enjoys doing the show. I was surprised that Caleb won, though, and would have preferred Jena. All in all, I enjoyed watching.

    Idol WINS the Night! Says:

    “TV Ratings: ‘American Idol’ goes out strong as FOX wins season-closing Wednesday!”

    “It still must have relieved FOX to see that “Idol” was capable of ticking back over 10 million viewers and above a 2.5 in the key demo. It was also, percentage-wise, a much larger finale bump than any of the spring’s other competition shows.”

    “Overall, FOX averaged an estimated 10.14 million viewers and a 6.1 rating/10 share for Wednesday night.”

    “American Idol” took a big jump in its second hour with 11.02 million viewers and a 2.8 rating among adults 18-49.”

    Cindy Says:

    I loved the show last night it was great. Keith was interviewed and he said Nicole, Sunday, and Faith were all there side stage dancing. I saw a posting that when Jennifer did her thing onstage Keith ran over to his family and was dancing with Nicole and his girls. He is such a sweetie who loves his family.
