I think Lee will win. Crystal was good at the beginning but she seems to be drifting slowly, while Lee is doing the opposite. He showed me last night that he should win this. Casey's problem is that he sounds like any other Chad Kroeger wannabee these days. No one's interested in stock, boring voices. Maybe Tiger will show up since he likes Nickelcrack

they are all talented, however, an American Idol should have all the right stuff, also.
good looks, charm, charisma. Casey has it, so does Lee.
Crystal looks like an overweight, drudgelocked, messy, missing teeth hillbelly !
She does not have all the right stuff.

No doubt he'll win after the judges pimped the hell out of him. Still doesn't make his off-key mumbling good. He'll fail in record sells ala Taylor Hicks. This show is a joke now and the rating reflect that fact.

That Crystal woman is awful. I watched last night. She was so off key on the Melissa Etheridge song, it was ridiculous. I can't stand the sight of her, with those crusty "almost" dreadlocks and her flabby white face. She looks like such an old woman. Who the hell's going to pay to see a Janis Joplin wannabe in concert? She's a one-trick singer. I just can't imagine 12-19 year olds massively downloading her stuff. She needs to go back where she came from. Casey is hotttt and a very talented guy. Lee is awesome.

I have loved Lee since he was put in the top 24. For those who say "no one will remember him two weeks from now" ....just wait!
I think he's going some where!

Lee reminds me of Springstein. All he needs is a "born in the USA" type hit and he's platinum.

I say the judges tried to tip the scales in his favor by the songs the judges picked for the contestants. How could anything compare to Hallelujah? Come on now....Crystal singing Maybe I'm Amazed (which is clearly written for a male) and Casey singing Daughters?
Puleese!!!!

American Idol jumped the shark a long time ago. I wouldn't pay for any music from any AI contestant past or present.

12. Trish, I agree with you. The judges have not backed up Casey. I think Casey will be signed by a country label and do really well.
Have you seen him on youtube singing the blues when AI sent the 3 home? He's fantastic at blues and plays killer guitar.
Bucky who is not as talented as Casey even got a country deal and he's doing very well, sold a few 100 thousand records.
Casey will do even better.

OK, so Lee sounds like a young Bruce Springsteen. He needs to get rid of the store window dummy look on his face.
Crystal is boring and the market is not out there for her.
Casey will sell more than Crystal and be on the country videos, doing blues, country pop.

We live in alberta,canada and where we are from Lee is the next american idol. Even if he does not take the crown, he will remain our american idol. We spotted him when he was in the top 24. Crystal is ok, is that her real hair? Casey has shown that he is not a serious contender. I am surprised he is still in the competition. REMEMBER AMERICA this is not a beauty pagent this is a singing competition. Good luck Lee.

I have loved Casey, for obvious reasons, as well as his talent, and Crystal is a no-brainer for "winner". But Lee really has stepped it up, and I believe I would vote for Lee before Casey. Since I feel the way other Casey fans do, I'm guessing tonight may be the night for Lee and Crystal. Either way Casey.....You ALL have new careers to look forward to. Not one of you will live minimally from this day on. Talent, Fame, Money, and Happiness for all of you. So, Congrats to everyone. You're all incredibly talented, and it was nice to see that all three of the top contestants are so understated. No B.S. No egos. They really love what they do, and have amazing talent to back it up. Cheers to the winnerS.....all three of you.
