Helloooo She had two things going against her. Idol is about making a Pop Star. Crystal is a folk singer, you can not make a Pop Star out of a Folk singer.#2 She has dreds that's another reason why she lost. Most of the young people do not listen to Folk music and. We all know that it is suppose to be a competition and the best person should win but when you let the public determine who is going to win it's a popularity contest. As I said before she is a folk singer not a pop singer, Lee was more popular.

What are some of you talking about! Janet looked amazing! She rocks at 44 yo. Did a wonderful job. I was so glad to see her doing her thing. She looked hot, current, fit, and ready to bring it! Go Janet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

...best singer never wins...you really think Chris was better than Adam or a couple of years ago, Hicks was better than McPhee? or Ruban better than Clay?....Please!!!!...take the phones from the teeny boppers...perhaps the judges should be in on the voting process. Most successful after the show seems to be those who finish 2nd to 5th...

You people and your comments. You think you are some sort of importance to what happened on Americal Idol. I love how people think the show is rigged everytime the person who they wanted to win didnt. I use to like Crystal when I first started watching but then she got dull and boring. Who wants to listen to 60's 70's hippy music? Seems like a bunch of haters if you ask me. Grow up, get over yourselves.

Just because your choise didnt win doesnt mean its rigged. GET THE EFF over it GET A EFFING LIFE. I seen a lady scream on yout ube that she hated LEE WTF is wrong with you people.
I am sure if lee lost his fans be screaming too.

Well, Crystal has a better voice but I think she lost votes when she kept talking about her illness and son. Seemed like she was trying to get sympathy votes. Then she kept taking over the mike and adlibbing....so annoying. I think she thought she had it in the bag...guess not!

IDOLSUCKS    

Both finalist sucks but the girl contestant was far better than the winner for this season. How the hell did he win? he was so boring sometimes out of tune. AI had lost its credibility...where is chris allen now? chris who? did he recorded an album at all? This show is really funny LOL.

The more tame winner won not the best .We will hear about Crystal longer than dwezel just like last year who was the winner? Lambert lost but came out the winner in the long run.

It is all about the teeny bobber lil gals. From the songs that are popular now ,,,Lee was run of the mill. Crystal has a wonderful voice and definitely should have won. She stayed to true to who she is. Ellen is a terrible judge...everyone is just great according to her. Ellen should take a departure after this year...back to her day time show.

All the votes come from girls age 8 to 15 who are looking for a puppy dog to have their first crush on. If you look at this years winner and last years winner... they are little puppy dogs, who are soft, little, cute boys, who make the little girls get all excited.



Who do you think has the time and skills to vote 100's of time with their cell phones? If there is one thing little girls are good at, its spending huge amounts of time on the their phones.



AI is not about the singing...it about getting little girls to dial their phones and vote for the cute little boy.
