  1. Crystal I hope you win, you got my vote. your an inspiration and i just really hope you win you have such a strong voice and your very beutiful. You are SUCH AN AMAZING SINGER !!!!!!! ALL THE BEST HOPE YOU WIN 😀

  2. Echo those thoughts from Brith #1…. Crystal totally nailed the first two rounds…. Game Over!!

    But… Lee is a very good second

  3. I love you Crystal and you also got my vote. You are amazing and keep it up and I wish you win!! Lee is still good though

  4. Although I am rooting for Lee, it appears from the judges’ prospective, Crystal nailed her choice of songs. Both have their own fan base and it’s anybody’s call and lies in the voters’ calls.

  5. Vote for Lee – he is a much better performer. I would definitely buy his records. Crystal is nothing different.

  6. Just had my heart in my throat Crystal during your last song…You are an amazing singer..By far better than Lee…If you don’t win, people are crazy!!!

  7. Tell me that wasn’t set up for Crystal to win, like beautiful day as Lee’s single like are they that idiotic. Use Somebody is the perfect song for Lee and they had two opportunities to give him a song like that but instead they give him 2 songs that don’t fit his style. Crystal’s song was perfect for her. Crystal did have an amazing night, but Vote for Lee, he deserves to win. Just base yer vote on the performer because Lee dominated last week and Crystal did better tonight, so just take all season into account. VOTE LEE

  8. If this is the Super Bowl of American Idol and the winner of tonight’s performances is the champ, then Crystal is clearly the winner if it is a singing competition.

    Since this is NOT really a singing competition, but a popularity contest, and tonight’s performances have little to do with the way that many will vote and based upon last year when Adam was clearly the winner, but lost, I predict that Lee will be the new AI winner.

    Crystal, like Adam, will have a great career. I’m not sure about Lee because in his heart he knows who won and he is the kind of person for whom that will make a difference.

  9. LEE ROCKS! I could hear him on the radio but where in the world would you hear crystal? On hick station? and what about her teeth? makes me want to gag! and wash your hair.. eew. I don’t want any of my children to look to that as an idol. Gross!

  10. Ashley, I totally agree with you. I thought it was just me, and am so glad someone else thinks she is not worthy of being an idol. Would anyone really want to see her in concert? Or hear her on the radio? NO WAY. She doesn’t even come close to Lee. He is clearly the winner!

  11. I agree with Michael #..11.Lee is the American Idol. Crystal is good, great voice but that’s not what Idol is all about.It the overall performances not the final one. Crystal was about to leave the show..I too would buy Lee’s albums Crystal is more country..If Crystal wins it;s about a popularity contest.

  12. ILY LEE!!!! ur awesome! luv his performance…betr than crystals cleerly! ILY LEE i meen who woodnt! <3

  13. As has been said many times in many different ways this is no longer a singing competition but a popularity contest. And in the end I am not sure the tables are turned the way the IDOL powers want. Last year seemed that way and this year has a similar theme to it. I can stand either one winning really…it makes no difference to me. In the end one will take off the other will be another Taylor Hicks or similar forgotten household word. I listen to the music….not watch the performer and if they are hot with blue eyes or have less than white teeth. Even in a music competition we seem to be able to have prejudices and will even put them in print. Truth is neither of these two have the talent of Kelly Clarkson or Carrie Underwood. While some want to talk of looks I wish both of them well….I bet neither one thought they would have a year like 2010.

  14. Lee is amazing. He has an amazing voice, he has a great personality and he looks like the next American Idol! I am voting him! Go Lee

  15. Lee has it hands down !!! I think Simon and Randy had to compensate for already naming Lee DeWeyze as the winner in their interviews. Hopefully that’s why all the over-praising for Crystal. I didn’t get her last song at all. And again, she just can’t keep her mouth shut and had to interrupt Simon before he gave his comments to her.
    Go Lee !!!!! Amazing singer, amazing performer, amazing HUMAN BEING.

  16. OH-MY-GOD!!! LEE YOU ARE THE BEST I WANT YOU TO WIN SOOOOOO BAD!!!! I ALSO LIKE CRYSTAL TOO!! BUT EVEN IF CRYSTAL DOESNT WIN, SHE WILL STILL GO A LONG WAY!!!! VOTE FOR LEE!!!!! HE IS AMAZING!!!!!

  17. Go mama sox!!! Chrystal is soooo comfortable on stage. I went to see her at the mud hens, and she sang flawless.She sang with her son…it was soo cute. i really think she should win, and even if she dosen’t she already has a reputation and a career. You got my vote Sox!!! 🙂

  18. Crystal had songs down her alley but Lee did amazingly with bad song choices given him.

    Lee wins AI because it’s all about working with obstruction and making it.

  19. Ya, whatever happened to raw american idol talent. Years ago, it was about discovering a nobody and turning them into somebody. Like Simon said over and over the last few weeks, this is what the show was supposed to be like. I think that’s why Lee is so deserving…working at a paint shop and having the singing talent that needed to be discovered. Crystal, along with a lot of past idol contestants have been singing in bands and stuff for years and have an edge over normal people, which is why i think that this show is starting to bomb. It’s all about who has made the most improvements throughout the season, and in my books, that is CLEARLY LEE!!!

  20. Lee is great! He sure deserves to win. He has a great voice and is such a nice, humble guy. Crystal has a good voice, but always sounds the same.

  21. There is no way that Lee won tonight’s singing competition. If I believe he had I would say so since I am not a “fan” of either one.

    But Crystal clearly won tonight’s competition and it would be nice to hear unbiased opinions of those who actually know music who are not really fans of either Lee or Crystal, but who are fans of good music and performances and can truly give an unbiased opinion.

  22. Bowersox voice is sooo awesome and I want her to win soooo bad. She is so instrumental talented.

  23. @Ronnie – yeah really, what was Lee suppose to do with those POOR song choices given to him.(backflips) hehe That sucked. But no worries Lee, you got this next America Idol Title !

  24. Really like them both-picked these 2 for the finale immediately-would buy albums from both of them.

  25. There have been all sorts of comments and opinions about this year’s contestants. Most people agree that the contestants fall short when compared to those of previous years. I tend to disagree. I found them as good if not better than in any other previous season. I find Lee, big Mike, Crystal, Siobhan, let alone Casey great. Now I am convinced that despite having been a Casey fan from day one, Lee is the best this year and surely deserves and WILL win.

  26. WE HOPE LEE WINS HE IS A TRUE AMERICAN IDOL,HE STARTED OUT WITH RAW TALENT.WORKED IN A HARDWARE IN PAINT.HAS NO CHILDREN,AND HAS NOT PLAYED PUBLICLY SINCE HE WAS YOUNG.WE THE FANS AND THE JUDGES ACTUALLY HELP LEE GROOM TO BE AMERICAN IDOL WINNER.WE ALL WANTED MORE, AND MORE AND EVERY WEEK HE DID HIS BEST,AND GOT BETTER AND BETTER.THIS KID HAS WORKED VERY HARD TO BE WHERE HE IS ON AMERICAN IDOL!HE DID IT FOR ALL OF US.BECAUSE HE LOVED OUR COMMENTS, YELLING HIS NAME,SIGNS AND ALL THE LOVE! HE DOES DESERVE THE TITLE.REMEMBER WHEN THE SHOW FIRST STARTED HE WAS SO SHY AND LOOK AT HIM NOW!! HE CAME OUT OF HIS SHELL!(HE IS SO CUTE!) WE LOVED TO WATCH HIM WHEN HE WAS REACTING TO THE JUDGES COMMENTS, YOU COULD FEEL HIM BLUSH! WE ARE SO PROUD OF HIM! VOTE FOR LEE! (HE IS A TRUE AMERICAN IDOL)

  27. Lee DeWyze all the way. THIS MY FRIENDS IS THE NEXT AMERICAN IDOL! 2010 AMERICAN IDOL IS………. LEE DEWYZE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *GRAFFETTI ALL OVER THE PLACE* WOOOOOOOOOAHH YEAHHH GO LEE!!!!!! HEY CHICAGO WHAT DO U SAY? LEE DEWYZE IS GONNA WIN ALL THE WAY!

  28. Wow! Shallow viewers. What does it matter what someone’s hairstyle is or if they have “perfect” teeth or not? She is REAL not FAKE. She will have a great career, there is a country full of people that appreciate true artistry, dreadlocks and natural teeth and all. I’d take that any day over fake bleached teeth and cookie cutter hair coloring/styles. Grow up people.

  29. no doubt that both crystal and lee deserve to be in the finale. i think though that, based on talent, crystal should be the AI. but i’m not holding my breath…not since Adam Lambert came in second last year!

    AI has turned to be a popularity rather than a talent show. the producers should really give the judges a say on who should win…like dancing with the stars…and not rely totally on votes received. IMHO, it defeats the purpose of the show.

    lastly, i will truly miss simon…a big loss to AI. but then, i will have The X Factor to look forward to next year. good luck, simon!

  30. The judges were so prejudice against Lee. They might as well told Crystal she already won American Idol. The songs for Lee were SO tollay wrong for him. Crystal had great songs, that suited her voice. I have watched Idol for years and I cannot believe how one sided this last night was. The judges had nothing good to say about Lee. I felt so sorry for him. Everyone should vote for Lee. He is the best!!

  31. CRYSTAL IS A VERY TALENTED ENTERTAINER,AND SHE WILL BE FAMOUS,WE ARE SURE. BEAUTIFUL VOCALS.AND SHE IS VERY PREETY AND HER CHILD IS BEAUTIFUL.BUT SHE WILL ALWAYS BE A MOTHER FIRST!AND A VERY GOOD ONE AT THAT!BEST WISHES FOR YOU AND YOUR SON CRYSTAL.YOU AND YOUR BABY WILL GO FAR! RICH WITH LOVE AND MONEY. LIFE WILL BE GOOD FOR BOTH OF YOU!

  32. Lee better win because he is the best and I don’t think that Crystal is good enough and sounds good to actually hear on the radio everyday!!!

  33. to elocs 32 and tony 37

    the only way to find out who sings better (as some of you seem to be obsessed with…) is for all the contestants to sing identical songs

  34. AI is DEFINITELY not a pure singing contest, how often do you see judges predicting outcomes before finals in a singing competition?!

  35. Crystal is the most talanted young lady that I have seen or heard in a very long long time! Her song ” Up to the Mountain ” was the most beautiful and powerfully inspirational song that I’ve seen on your show since it started! It brought tears to my eyes and made me long to meet my mother in the peaceful valley of heaven above 🙂 She is “hands down” the winner of this year and if she is marketed right,she will become the best album/record seller of all time!!! God Bless & Good Luck Crystal

  36. i dont think lee will win this competition. big mike is better than him in terms of voice. he reached this far because of girls voting for him. i hope lee will go home.

  37. I believe Lee will will AI due to the teenage girls that will vote for his looks and raspy voice, rather than the actual talent he has. Crystal HAS a voice, not a rasp, Crystal can sing anything, Lee can’t. As for those that go on about Crystals looks/teeth… get over it.. she is a natural woman, not a made up stuck up, pencil thin, mega makeup wearing bimbo. Regardless of who wins, Crystal will be a much more successful artist than Lee, just like last season with Adam. So really, Crystal wins anyway.

  38. Give it to them both…they both did great but do believe crystal had better song choices…songs that suited her more…But Lee did great with what he had to do with…Great on the Boxer…and i am a die hard Lee fan…so fingers are definitely crossed..have faith lee will pullit off and walk away 2010 American Idol winner…

  39. I do not get the criticism of the song choice. Only ONE was chosen by the producer. The other two were choice of the artist….one a repeat and one new one of their choice. All of you who are saying that Lee’s songs were wrong you need to criticize Lee. 2/3 were HIS choices. Lee has a unique raspy voice…but he can not sing an entire song in tune. But perhaps singing in tune is no longer necessary. I could not sing in church if I was out of tune…..not allowed.

  40. Lee. why didn’t he do some “Zac Brown Band” as their songs are made for his voice if he had a chance to sign something more country. He will rock if he goes country… Your right looks do count and Crystal is old fashioned and her hair is nappy. She just semes like she is the tipical street singer. Lee came of age and with the help he will get after he wins look out. Word to wise LEE if he reads this .,..leave the tennis shoes home with a sport coat and tie like you wear…if you want to show your adult!! How ugly a look can you have ??

  41. Both singers are great they have their own style Crystal has far more experience than Lee since she is most exposed , on the other hand Lee is just starting as an artist and watching the show Lee is the most improved of all the contestants.. 🙂 so I go give it up to LEE

  42. @waiting till its over—I agree with you 100%-only the 2nd song Lee sang was picked for him..If you didn’t like the song choices..blame Lee and not the show being “rigged” in favor of Crystal…Going into the season, neither Lee or Crystal were my favorite but after tonight…I hope Crystal wins…she had the complete package…she nailed all 3 of her songs…the last one she sang so beautiful I cried..and she showed such a connection with her audience…she looked relaxed…and for those who say Lee was working at a paint store..Lee did record 2 albums before being discovered by AI..and you can look that up…so much for the hard luck story huh?

  43. @56 melissa: really? why was he crying during the homecoming at the paint store and saying he works there? liar huh! too much drama like his face. he is a sucker for praises and attention. wth!

  44. @amber—not saying he didn’t work at the paint store…all I am saying is Lee is not the hard luck story people want us to believe…he is a musician just like Crystal, Casey and Big Mike..and has worked at it for years just like the other 3…

  45. @melissa: yeah i know what you meant. what i was trying to say was he didnt tell it to the public about him having an album already and being a musician. and they keep saying he just started to make it look like he is talented raw artist. maybe he will try to sell that after idol.

  46. to all lee fans:

    make sure lee will win!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  47. i have never paid much attention to what ryan seacrest says until tonight… after his last song ryan told lee he’s a “class act”

    lee is going to win – he is a class act 🙂

  48. I agree for lee to win but that’s no reason to make fun of crystal I think she’s a great singer so Ashley and Jody y’all can have your opinion but I think that god made crystal the way he wanted her to be and I think she’s an awsome singer and I’m ten so that has a lot to say and y’all need to learn that know ones perfect and crystals awsome so keep your mean snobbY opion to your self good luck in the future lee and crystal

  49. Tonight Chrystal was very very strong, honestly she did a great job. Was confident, had stage presence, was in tune and nailed her songs.

    I felt Lee very very nervous but he did a decent job.

    If the competition was one night as tonight without a doubt Chrystal would have won it hands down BUT has been months and months and in my opinion Lee should win anyway.

    He has grown, he has worked very hard to get in the final… not that I am diminishing Chrystal’s job at all she has worked so very hard too but I genuinely believe that Lee has listened and put on practice the advices. Chrystal has not really. She feels she is that kind of artist and she always had something to say back instead of listening and learning.

    She will do so very well but for youth and entertaining I think Lee should be the winner as Chrystal’s style is not connected with the youngsters.

    Anyway good luck to both and the one that wins will have many blessings and a wonderful career ahead.

  50. Lee is your typical American Idol contestant…Crystal is unique and different then anyone EVER on that stage, she has an amazing talent and should win. Don’t vote for people for the looks, but for the talent…Crystal out shines them all!!!

  51. I think Lee is the winner. He not only has a great unique voice he reminds me of Bruce Springsten the Boss. He will go far. Kind of like Daughtery. He knows what the public likes and will produce those songs. Go Lee

  52. Crystal was a great singer and she totally deserves to win. But if I’m going to choose I will go for Lee not because of his looks, but because he has a talent and he showed it and prove it to the people. He deserves to be the next American idol more than any body.Lee for the win

  53. Lee to win – THE IDOL, American Idol Season 9.

    The show may as well change name to “Singing on the Streets in America” if Lee doesn’t win!

  54. Crystal did a great job last night, but looking back at the whole season, it is LEE who deserves TO WIN. He’s been working hard and made big big progress every week.

    I believe he’ll go far and be successfful. Those who say LEE can NOT SING, just ask the judges, especially SIMON, to redefine the meaning of a GREAT ARTIST and FANTASTC SINGER!!!

    Are you with me, grandma from Las Vegas?

  55. LEE,YOU ARE FANTASTIC EVEN THOUGH THE JUDGES HAVE ABSOLUTLY NO IDEA ABOUT MUSIC,YOU ARE AUSTRALIAS IDOL COME ON DOWN UNDER FOR A CONCERT CANT WAIT TO BUY YOUR FIRST RECORD,I CANT BELIEVE HOW CRYSTAL IS JUST SCREECHING TONIGHT

  56. Lee will win and if he’s wise, he’ll use his prize winnings for opening up paint shops all over america because there’s NO WAY he’ll be successful in music…he just doesn’t have what it takes! Crystal will not win but will by far be the most successful idol and will provide a good life for her son. She will sell many records that will be chart toppers…just like ellen said…if you make a salad i’ll buy it…she’s too good!

  57. LEE THERE IS VERY LITTLE MORE TO SAY OTHER THAN YOU ARE THE MAKINGS OF AN INCREDIBLE ARTIST AND I HAVE BEEN WATCHING AND LISTENING AND BUYING SINCE THE SIXTIES AND I KNOW TALENT I COLLECTED BEONE OF THE FIST BEATLE PICTURES WHEN EVERYONE ELSE HERE THOUGHT THEY WERE BUGS,GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR FUTURE AND LOOK FOREWARD TO YOUR FIRST C.D AND CONCERT HERE IN AUSTRALIA.

  58. C’mon Lee man
    I think Lee is my favourite contestent out of the whole show, I always thought Adam would of been and that no one would beat him but Lee comes in and Whow, Lee is Better Than any word that I could say, Hes Just so Fantastic!!!

  59. Lee, you’re so great. No matter what happens, you’ll always be our idol. We’ll pray for you. We know you’ll have a big career in the future.

  60. Lee is going to be a star no matter what. I think Lee’s voice is one of a kind. I love every song he sings and want to hear more….

  61. I think Lee will win!!! sorry i dont understand y crystal is good.. where i dont even know what is she singing… Her pronouciation of the words are bad.. i think the last song crystal sung is better.. the last song lee sang was bad…. sigh.. but nevertheless, i still root for LEE!!! Hope he wins!!!

  62. Lee only gets better with every performace. He has grown so much as an artist. The writing is on the wall. Lee is the next american Idol.

  63. You guys are nuts, Crystal is the best performer of both. She put Lee in his place last night. Crystal has more talent than Lee any day any time. If Crystal doesn’t, it was for popularity not talent. This show is suppose to be for talent nothing else.

  64. LEE will win even if he farted singing. NO WOMEN will ever be on TOP of MEN. WOMEN will always be FOLLOWERS of MEN. WOMEN will always be CRAZY of MEN no matter what the price is. WOMEN will always hate WOMEN who wants to succeed over MEN. Lastly, any WOMAN who DISAGREE is GUILTY

  65. Most Artists and people who are in the music industry were rooting for Crystal because they knew she had what it takes to succeed. In fact, big stars are lining up on her for collaboration. check on entertainment interviews.

  66. MEN will win even if he farted singing. WOMEN will always be CRAZY of MEN no matter what. WOMEN will always hate WOMEN who wants to succeed over MEN. Lastly, any WOMAN who DISAGREE is GUILTY

  67. I would never buy or even free download Crystal. I’m in my 40s and don’t listen to music older than me. I can’t even look at her so video or youtube out. Lee is much easier on eyes and ears. If Siobhan hit those notes it was screaming but her high notes were much much tolerable and less constipated-sounding than Crystal’s.

  68. WELL 2ME ONE THING WE KNOW ABOUT YOU IS YOU DONT HAVE A MUSICAL EAR,WHICH I FEEL VERY SAD ABOUT BECAUSE WITHOUT MUSIC THE WORLD WOULD BE A VERY SAD PLACE. BUYING RECORDS IS ALL ABOUT WHO WE CONNECT WITH AND THE TYPE OF MUSIC WE LIKE,I JUST CELEBRATED MY 60 BIRTHDAY WITH A ROCK’N ROLL PARTY TO DIE FOR,THATS MY MUSIC I’M A SIXTIES CHILD AND WILL BE UNTIL I DIE,WHATEVER IS YOU LIKE IS GREAT BUT WHAT I AM SAYING IS WE KNOW WHO THE JUDGES WANT TO WIN ITS OBVIOUS BUT THAT DOESNT THEY ARE THE BEST PERFORMER ITS THERE PREFENCE,I HAVE MINE

  69. MY PREFERENCE IN PERFORMER WAS LEE FROM THE AUDITIONS,BUT I LOVED THIS IDOL,SO MUCH TALENT,AND SO HARD TO ELIMINATE ANYONE EACH WEEK BUT IT IS ABOUT BEING A CLASS ACT AND THAT IS LEE IMAGINE HOW HE WILL BE WHEN HE POLISHES UP HIS ACT,BY THE WAY OTHER SINGERS I LOVE ARE BEYONCE AND PINK

  70. GOODNIGHT AMERICA ITS TIME FOR BED,CANT WAIT FOR THE RESULTS SHOW TOMORROW NIGHT.

  71. ronnie in #46: “the only way to find out who sings better (as some of you seem to be obsessed with…) is for all the contestants to sing identical songs”

    Great, then contestants should all have to sing the exact same songs all season long, every night, regardless of their singing styles or what they may sing best. What a boring competition that would be.

    Last night Lee should have sung like this was the big show, the grand finale. He should have let it all hang out and go for the fences, but he did not. He did not sing to win, even with his own song choice which he sang ok, but singing ok in the American Idol final is not good enough to win.

    Crystal sang to win and it clearly showed last night. If this truly is a singing competition and it was all about the singing last night, then Crystal clearly won despite what all of the Lee fanatics want to claim.

    That being said, it does not mean that Lee will still not win because in the end American Idol is not really about the singing, but about popularity.

  72. You have to look at who did the best the whole season; Crystal had a good night and Lee was just too nervous, but I like his style and music better. I can’t wait to see and hear him when he is more relaxed and confident. I think Lee should win and I think he will.

  73. im still living in the past. Casey James should have been in the top 2 and win the whole thing. That said, Crystal did sing better of the two, but who knows, right? All the best to both of them.

  74. I am for Lee all the way…however anyone making comments about Crystal’s appearance should be very ashamed of themselves…I would love to see pictures of people saying these rude things about her, it really makes me sick to think how cruel people can be:(

  75. re #13 – ashley, you are soooo funny. i was hysterical at your comments. not to bash crystal, but you hit the nail on the head. these are things that she can take care of, so people shouldn’t be sticking up for her. she can cut and wash her hair – it’s easy! elliot yamin fixed his teeth while on idol. she should have too.

  76. Lee should win – he’s wonderful, talented, genuine and has a voice to knock your socks off…..he looks the part of an idol. Regardless of whether he wins or not, we will definitely be hearing and seeing more of him! Go Lee!!

  77. they made the show so lame. why on earth theyre singing those songs?? crystal looks like a homeless woman in her first dress.and she made a show as if she dropped something on her entrance. and her second song, she tried to shake hands with the audience which doesnt fit and she didnt look good at all doing it.

    Lee didnt have stage presence. he was so excited to win that it made him so nervous and he was so pitchy. whats going on? they dont deserve the finale. they should both go home.

  78. Wow! I must agree with some of the comments. Crystal most definitely needs a new wardrobe and if she wins, I hope she does not maintain her persona of being a “subway” singer with those horrible skirts she wears and her hair is not much to be desired. Performers must look good apart from their singing. Lee should win as he has progressed well.

  79. Crystal was amazing last night…it was clearly her night to really shine. I think she deserves to win…she is so talented and has an outstanding voice. I think she will be out next American Idol…I’m all for you Crystal!!!!

  80. I used to root for Crystal at the beginning but I think she began to think that she was ‘it’ and ‘the one’ quite a while ago – her smugness is showing. I would never buy or download even for free her music – only Casey’s, Lee’s and Aarons. And Siobahn’s if she’d quit screaming in each song. I find Crystal quite boring and predictable.

  81. I admit that Crystal was better yesterday, but Lee singing hallelujah was in my opinion the best interpretation ever in A.I.’s history. It was so good that it almost made me cry and also made me start supporting him over Casey. I am an old man who likes women but Crystal has no sex appeal and can’t even dress appropriately considering her horrible legs. She should try to hide them not show them. The teeth and hair is not so serious because they can be arranged later. She has no sex appeal and therefore cannot be an idol.

  82. I just want to say Go Crystal you Rock ,, You been my favorite out of the females from the trials and I just hope you get it, my husband does to. I pick Lee out of the guys to so to me which ever on wins is fine they both are very talented people.. I well be buying there Cd’s ,, Simon we well miss you next year it won’t be the same with your remarks on Idol.. but I well give it a try ,, Ellen your were Great as always,, I love your daytime shows as well I am glad your on Idol.. Kara and Randy your great to like always thanks for staying with Idol.. Paula..

  83. I wish you both well and obviously would like both to win as my feeling they are both entertainers. However, my heart and wishes to go to Crystal. I would not miss American Idol just to see her. We are all going to miss Simon, he is the anchor. Goood Luck and the best to you both in your future.

  84. I’m surprised that the votes so far show Lee as the winner. Crystal blew Lee away last night. It would be a shame for her not to win.

  85. #13 Ashley: Shame on you. Hairstyles change (and dreadlocks aren’t dirty), teeth can be fixed but your mean spirit…is in your heart & you’re stuck with it. Hope your children have other examples of good behavior. I’m astounded that adults feel it OK to put someone down just because they prefer another performer. Keep the nasty remarks to yourself, root for your favorite and try to act like a grownup.

  86. elocs #97:
    it’s my opinion that Lee also sang his heart out last night, you and most people might not feel it because it’s not the sound or style you prefer to hear, that’s all
    Lee and Crystal are different animals, while Lee is shy and lay-back Crystal is forceful and constantly overwhelming
    many of us prefer Lee’s personality and artistry and sound, we believe he’s given his best throughout the entire season!

  87. It is funny to read comments saying the judges don’t know anything about music…when the writer’s favorite is judged as less than great. Crystal and Lee both seem like nice people and have their fans. Whoever wins, for me, Crystal is the artist who will be creating great music for many years to come. Thanks to AI for introducing her to the world and I look forward to hearing much more from Mamasox.

  88. they were both fabulous last night..not sure I care for Crystal’s attitude, but she is very talented and either one would do us proud.

  89. My husband and I have liked LEE DEWYZE from the begining. LEE has grown as a singer and performer, And through it all has stayed true to himself. Old or new, country or rock, LEE DEWYZE has made each song sound new and current! My husband and I are ready to buy any type of music CD that LEE DEWYZE puts out there! LOVE YOU LEE, OUR NEXT AMERICAN IDOL!!!!!

  90. I agree that crystal was given songs to suit her voice. Not fair to Lee at all but he did great with what he was given to sing. My vote goes to LEE all the way.He is much better at varity, she sounds the same in everything she sings.Lee is the one to take it all. Vote LEE.

  91. i think crstal rocked the town down she should be the next american idol but being popularity voting and not so much talent voting i just have to hope and pray she wind for her amd her baby boy and her health cause she soooo desrves it Mammasox fan forever!!!!

  92. I have to admit…Crystal blew her “Sox” off last night. She was awesome. I think Lee’s song choices were not that great. It could hurt him. I still would like to see him win. He should have done “Alleluia” again.

  93. LEE should win!!! Crystal is trying to get the sympathy vote…and what was that with Simon???
    Please!!!!
    LEE has my vote…Casey should have been up there with Lee!!!

  94. Maria 122 i so agree, much rather 2 simple men who just love to sing and play guitars!

    those of you who say girls/women only vote for guys/looks, maybe you yourselves are doing that, but know we are not all the same… so don’t jump to conclusion!

  95. I think Lee would have done better if the songs choices were different. But even though the songs of Crystal were slightly better I still want to see Lee win. I love the sound of his voice and don’t think I would get tired of hearing his voice but with Crystal, her voice is fantastic but something I would not want to listen to over and over again. With all that said “GO LEE”, you are my American Idol.

  96. i noticed crystal was scared for the comment simon will give to her, so she thank him first before he could speak, and simon had no choice but to her a nice comment in exchange for her comment about him. and she was doing simon’s wink. ewww! i really wanna pull that thing on her chin. it looks so annoying.

  97. crystal sounds like a mom giving birth when she screams. it hurts my ears. she walks like a street kid. OMG~. no class.

  98. to me American Idol stands for someone that our young and old can look up to.Not tatto and lip pins and hair that looks like they are from out of space.Lets get back to the real meaning of American Idol. vote for lee. He deserves it and fits what the real American Idol stands for.

  99. I like them both and think they both deserve to win in their own ways. Having said that, in my mind it is not a most improved competition nor is it a best dressed competition. Lee did come on strong in the end, but overall Crystal has been more consistent. If they were tied going into last night, Crystal certainly comes out ahead.
    Personally, no matter what happens, I hope that Crystal keeps her wardrobe, her looks and style just the way she wants. We need more women role models who aren’t afraid to appear as who they are as opposed to the fake Hollywood ideal.

  100. I agree with Michael and everyone else here .. Lee should win. He IS the fabulous and has a fabulous persona and will definitely make a tremendous American Idol.
    I am sick of Crystal’s moods. She is an emotional trainwreck waiting for an accident. It is apparent to me, that the only reason she is in this competition is because her Dad and her friends see $’signs for her. That simply is outrageous and doesn’t cut with me.
    C’mon Lee – please America vote sensibly and give the AI crown to him as he deserves it.
    Go LEE!

  101. If we were to rate Crystal and Lee on singing ability, there would be no contest. Crystal is by far and away the better of the two. She is a mature artist already. Lee can’t sing in tune to save his life (which is kind of what he had to do last night in this finale). Lee is a nice guy, to be sure. He may win due to popularity. The judges kind of gave him less than perfect reviews, which they often do to encourage voters to vote harder. Kind of like what happened to David Cook. I feel like the judges know Crystal is better but maybe some still want Lee to win anyway. At least that’s the impression I got. Crystal lacks Lee’s modesty. She is cool and confident (which I like), but some of the judges seem to go for humble pie over raw talent. Not me, but I do appreciate that Lee has definitely improved throughout the season. He deserves a pat on the back for what he’s accomplished, but he and Crystal are just in a different place right now, imho. Lee definitely can continue to improve. I think Crystal is already about where she is going to be.

    Now, if Crystal were competing against Adam Lambert, Adam would be the clear winner as far as who was the more seasoned performer at this point in time. But she isn’t. However, I predict that she will do very well. Ditto everything Ellen said.

    Best of luck to both Crystal and Lee in the future. They’re both good people, no matter what happens.

  102. Crystal, Is just too moody and talks back to the judges when they are only trying to help her. I don’t hear a great melody from her. I just hear screaming. She is talented with instruments. She lacks in singing.

  103. HELLO! Kiyam @129… “We need more women role models who aren’t afraid to appear as who they are as opposed to the fake Hollywood ideal.”

    are you a mom? do you have a daughter??

  104. Crystal doesn’t have the great voice. Lee does and I think he should win. Crystal is living in the 60’s and not a good job of it. That hair my goodness looks like a rats nest. She needs awhole new style and new music.

  105. GO LEE!!!!! I hope he wins tonight I like Crystal and said from the beginning it was going to be down to the two of them. but I want Lee to win he is a sweetheart. Crystal sounded like she was screaming last night. over all the weeks Lee is better and should be the next American Idle…

  106. After reading the comments and the poll, I am very disappointed. Crystal outperformed Lee by a mile, not just last night but all season. This is supposed to be a singing competition, not a popularity contest. However, just like last year the pre-teens and teens will call in multiple votes for Lee, just like they did for Kris Allen. And of course all of Casey’s fans will vote for Lee, not because of his talent but because of his looks. I do believe Lee deserves to be where he is, I think with time and more training he will be a talented performer. He shows his lack of training in the way he has a tendency to go off key. I am also sad that people are so judgemental because of looks, Crystal isn’t beautiful by most peoples standards, But don’t attack her for her teeth or hair, She is not dirty as people are insinuating and she has diabetes, which has an effect on her teeth. If judged as a performer, Crystal wins the title of American Idol.

  107. @ronnie 133: i agree with you. we need role models today who dress decent clothes for our kids to look up to , not a lady gaga type, not somebody who has a lot of tattoo, and piercings.

    i have a stepdaughter and she got a tattoo on her side a really big one and she goes to concerts wearing something like a two piece swim suit. she has piercings on her belly and nose and tongue. thats because of what they seen on tv and concerts. we need artists who shows class and good personality.

  108. @136 Jodi: stop saying people votes for looks. you cant prove it. crystal is not good looking but she reach the top 2 because people vote for her. AGAIN she is NOT good looking. stop insulting voters, and cover your mouth.

  109. Number #39. If you think they both suck don’t watch. I could not get through on the phone lines last night. I would have voted for Crystal. They will both have a great future no matter who wins.

    I am going to miss Simon next year.

    I am dissapointed that both American Idol and Dancing with the stars were on at the same time. I am going to guess that a lot of people watch both shows.

    America’s got talent is going to start next week. They have a great host. I am looking forward to seeing the new judge, Howie Mandel.

  110. @amber thats your opinion… in my opinion, Crystal outshines Lee vocally in every way.. you go and compare Lee’s Hallelujah performance and Crystal’s People Get Ready, and you tell me who the better singer is.. If you pick Lee, then you are totally tone deaf. Crystal has a look of her own, and to those of you who keep commenting about her dreads and teeth, dreads not dirty or rat infested, obviously you have no knowledge of that or it wouldn’t be said, and as for her teeth, my god what shallow people you all are, not everyone in this world has pure white teeth, just check out the judges teeth. Anyway, I have a feeling Lee will be crowned AI winner, because of all the teeny bopper girls who txt for looks rather and actual tallent, but Crystal will be another Adam Lambert and be far more successful than Lee.

  111. hahaha MistyLou @140… just listen to yourself, calling people tone deaf and shallow… you are one objective person who knows all, for sure!

  112. hello amber @ 137, i suppose i can live with the tattoos and the dreads and the teeth and the clothes and the jewelry and all… it’s the attitude i have huge reservation about, for i think in this more and more complex and challenging world, it will do all of us more good if we teach our young humility and humbleness

  113. Go lee all the way trust me if crystal wins ai will loose alot of voters for next year!!!!!

  114. Well MistyLou, I agree with you. Crystal will have a good career regardless and I am sure that she will get her teeth all fixed up nicely. She will be ok and do well, just like Adam did last year.

    The American Idol is no time to be shy or reserved. It is the time to let it all hang out and to go for the fences. The judges clearly damned Lee with faint praise last night, but have no fear, he will still win because it was not about singing in the end. It was about popularity and Lee’s fans will pull him to the top. Whether they can give him a career remains to be seen.

  115. I hope crystal looses!!!!! she sucks!!!! GO LEE crystal sounds like a screeching bird!!!!!!

  116. @140 mistylou: what i am trying you to understand is that crystal is not good looking but people still vote for her. i am just answering to people who said lee is on top because people vote for looks. how did you know crystals dreadlocks is not rat infested? did you really smell it? were you able to get close to her? are you her bf who wants to marry her for the money? are kara’s teeth yellower than crystal’s?

  117. I have a feeling that Crystal Bowersox will be crowned the winner of American Idol 2010 tonight, according to my predictions.

  118. Hello Ronnie,

    Yes, I am a mom, and yes, I do have daughters. I think that Crystal has an inner beauty that emanates from being true to herself. If you see something else, perhaps you need to remember that when you point a finger at someone, there are four pointing back.

  119. kiyam, i guess moms aspire to different things for their children, just like what fans do… now what are your referring to about pointing fingers?

  120. I always liked Crystal from the beginning.
    Then as I watched Lee grow with confidence (especially when he did Halleluyah) he became my choice and still is.
    Now like many of you have noticed, the songs that he had to perform last night were not his style.. WHY? Why did Crystal get the songs that suited her style and not Lee?

    They’re both very talented. I hope Lee doesn’t go back into his shell, because I feel they’ll both have great recording careers, no matter who wins.

    Personally, I’m still rooting for LEE.

  121. The percentages on here don’t even add up, 44 + 55? Who did the other 1% vote for? Stupid Americans..

  122. crystal: What insightful and intelligent comments. Without a doubt you should replace Simon next year on AI.

  123. @150Kiyam: Isn’t it, when someone points a finger at someone, there are three pointing back? That’s how I’ve always heard that saying!

  124. GOOD LUCK TO BOTH. tHEY ARE DYNAMIC.Could their be a tie. We think Lee has the edge.
    Good Luck and Thank you Simon Cowell for motivating stars.

  125. I LOVE LEE!!!! He clearly deserves to win. i agree with Michael #11. Lee is much better but those songs were horrible selections for him. Everyone on American Idol clearly wants Crystal to win and I don’t know why. she is good but nothing different. Lee is soooo talented and he deserves it. i will be greatly dissapointed AGAIN this year as i was last year if Lee does not win. HE IS MY AMERICAN IDOL! I just wish everyone else could see past crystal and actually see his talent. Lee you are amazing! Lee you also look like such an amazing and down to earth guy. I LOVE YOU!!! Ive loved you all season and i even have all of your performances downloaded on my IPOD! YOU ARE AMAZING, YOU ARE MY AMERICAN IDOL AND YOU DEFINITLEY GOT MY VOTES LAST NIGHT!!!! My dream is to meet you one day, I respect you so much as a singer and artist. If you don’t win i think the contest is rigged but you will still have such a long, wonderful and successful career as a singer! Look forward to buying your CD when it comes out! Love you and i will be watching tonight! Wish you the best!

    Lee #1 fan,
    Nickey

  126. What an amazing thing to see Lee Bloom and his voice is so wonderful. The duet with Lee and Crystal was awesome. They need to record together. Hope Lee gets it although Crystal was hot tonight on all 3 songs. Lee really needed to do Simple Man or Hallelujah. His voice and her voice are Awesome. Best Top 2 in all our watching. Good Luck. Simon Cowell you have such an ability to “know” stars and tell it like it is- You are a softly and we miss you.

  127. I voted for Crystal. She has the voice and the stage presence. She has been consistent from day one. Lee was bland last night – and no excuses for him. He blew it.
    No matter the outcome, she is going to make it big!!
    slainte!

  128. i honestly think lee will win, however i have found this to be the most boring season of idol ever, its so predictable. now that paula has left and simon will not be back, i really cant see myself watching this show ever again, only the hilarious auditions.

  129. even if chystle does win, no one will listen to her. she is soo unmodern and everyone should vote for lee

  130. This should be a no contest win for Crystal. It is too bad that the viewing public goes for the teeny bopper heart throb Lee who can’t really sing his way out of a paper box. Sorry if you lose Crystal, you are the best of the best.

  131. Well, Lee’s not the better talent but he certainly is more popular the Crystal. Maybe after Lee wins we can stop talking about the Kris/Adam fiasco.

  132. OMG Ashley you are soo sooo soo wrong. Just your attitude regarding Crystals hair and teeth let me know you are a bogan. Crystal is so talented and so humble why dont you take a leaf out of her book. Crystal will go places whether she wins or not just like Adam Lambert however as much as I like Lee he is just another voice that is like so many out there and is just too sweet and nervous. Crystal that last song you did WOW WOW WOW I hope you record it even if you don’t win because I it is never really about the best singer it is always really what the little young teenybobbers want and think is cute. No wonder Simon is leaving, Paula left I think because after Adam there could be no point in staying and I think Simon realised it this year that Adam is and probably will be the best thing ever to come out of American Idol. I absolutely love Crystal and she should win . Wake up American if we could vote in australia it would be a different story

  133. Lee WILL win!!! If you compare Lee and Crystal, Lee would have music lovers following him over her. Not to put Crystal down, she has a great voice, but I honestly believe Lee fans and Crystal fans would definitely agree if push came to shove, Lee is actually a voice we would love to hear over the radio anytime.

    It’s sad that most are denying themselves a true winner…LEE

  134. LEE IT BETTER BE LEE OR ELSE , BTW STINKYSOX IS GOIN IN THE WASH , SHE STINKS AND NEVER DID GOOD I HATE HER. GO LEE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  135. crystal bowersox is a hideous tina turner nockoff and is not original and , when has she ever sounded good ,really? i voted for lee all night long !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  136. I tried to be open minded about Crystal and her singing…but it just didn’t pan out… Lee for WIN

  137. crystal has no star appeal. she keeps bringing her sad story on the show as if shes asking for sympathies. i could stand her making a show for herself during the entrance and during her second song she shoke hands with the audience…a casey copycat. it didnt suit her.

  138. yeah, this is the first season that I don’t think anyone won. There was just not any talent this time around. But of the final two, I’d like Crystal to win, but don’t think I’d buy her cd.

  139. A Complete Dissapointment!!!!!!
    We needed a changed and what we got was another,, guy who sounds like he has a frog in his throat!!!!!
    Crystal Bowersox should have won!!! This was clearly just a bunch of teeny boppers voting over and over again for Lee who could not sing and his voice was off and sounded bad. Crystal was the best!!!! I cannot believe this!!! REALLY DISSAPOINTED!!!!!
    DONT WORRY CRYSTAL THIS GUY WILL BE SWALLOWED UP WHILE YOU MAKE ALL THE NUMBER ONE HITS!!!!
    YOU ARE SIMPLY THE BEST!!!!!

  140. This season has been all about Indie Artists, and it is about time. I am tired of the Kelly Clarkson etc. voices. She does have a beautiful voice, obviously.. Yes an awesome mainstream voice but I would never buy her CD, nor Celine Dions for that matter. The only AI female voice I really loved before this season was Fantasia singing Summertime. Crystal is new and fresh and no one out there has a voice like hers. She was clearly the winner, I think Lee was even suprised that he won… He got all the girly votes and if Crystal was hot she would have won. I personally think she is beautiful. Lets face it more women vote than men. I also love Lee’s voice, it is also very unique. Simon basically said last night after Crystals performances she was the winner. You silly silly girls,,, gotta love it… what can I say. We shall see who outsales more concerts and CD’s…. I know I will buy Crystals’s maybe Lee’s. I loved many of the of wonderful Indie Artist’s this season. I want to hear more of Lacy. Blessed be

  141. @ Frenchy…he picked him on Ellen’s show… and that’s what counts not last night..LOL…

  142. I thought Lee was amazing I also thought Crystal was amazing. This was the first year that I didn’t favour one over the other. They both deserved to win and I would buy either one of their upcoming albums. You can’t be sad for Crystal she is going to have an awesome career and in the end that is all that counts it is not who won American Idol it is that American Idol has given these kids the break they needed.

  143. You have got to be KIDDING!! This is the second year that Idol blew it!!! I’m done with the show!!!

  144. ok people lets get serious, first both are very talented, second no one really knows what,s going to happen when one wins. i mean the only idol winners you still hear on the radio are carrie and kelly. In my opinion, crystal will make more records bc she is true to herself as an artist. She has been consistent although lee peaked at the right moment. lee will likely win bc he peaked at the right moment but crystal will be more successful.this is just my opinion.

  145. All I can say is wait 2 years and hear which one is still on the radio. They are both good but only one will be great. No need to name names its a no brainer!

  146. casey james should win i love him so much he is soo hot!!! and he rocked on the guitar he was on fire but sadly he couldnt have the chance to continue so lee and crystel and lee continued the trip i hate them both but lee should win this so go leeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee i just hated him because he was better from casey the hottest guy in the world he hve the greatest hair and most sparkling eyes

  147. Don’t forget to mention Casey is a great singer and we won’t forget him. We want to see a lot more of this guy.. AMERICA GET TO WORK.. so us people in Canada will see him ,maybe magazines of him and concerts and C.D’s and so on and so on and so on….. # 200, you rock!!

  148. Total disappointment. I don’t understand how Lee even made it to the finals. Crystal will surely show the world who the real American Idol is by her future successes.
