I know many people thought Melinda should have been in the final and I have to admit a final between Melinda and Jordin would have been amazing. But Jordin prove she deserved to win tonight.

She did take a risk with the first song while performance wise it couldn't touch Blake's first performance it really proved that she can sing almost anything.

Round two to Jordin hands down, I think Jordin emotes very well, and her version of "Broken Wing" was even better this time. I had mixed feelings about Blake doing "She Will Be Loved" but he did Maroon 5 last week and that is a difficult song to sing and I don't think he sang it well. Though I do think he should go in that type of direction.

Of course then there was the winner's single. Every year we get a crappy cheese song and this year was no different. Will we ever get a good song like "A Moment Like This", probably not. But it doesn't matter because it is just filler and it's is all about the album anyways.

Blake did his best and it wasn't bad but it really was a singer's song and Blake isn't a great singer.

Jordin nailed it and the little emotional choke up at the end was reminiscent of Carrie's performance of Angels Brought Me Here during season 4.

Jordin proved she deserved to win it tonight taking 2 out of 3 from Blake. Good luck to them both I think they could both be very successful.

Thoughts?

BbK: As always, I think your analysis is spot on. Jordin is the winner tonight. I thought Blake outdid Jordin with his first song and that last "song" did him in. It was a  piece of tedious tripe. Even Jordin couldn't do much with it.

Jordin is sure to win based on my dialing attempts, Jordin's 3 phone numbers were all busy and I could hardly get through to vote for her even 3 hours after the show finished. I had no trouble getting in for CeeJay's Blake votes an hour after the finale.

I can't remember, but I think you might be right about different songs last year. That last one was a terrible choice for Blake to have to sing, but playing it back this morning thanks to Rickey.org, he didn't do as bad with it when just listening to it and not watching him try to perform on stage. Blake will do well and probably better by not winning AI. I thought that last week he did better than that group who sang and if I had to choose which CD I'd buy, it would be Blake's hands down.

I agree that it was better when a song that is more suited to the contestant can be sung.  That being said, I wonder if Blake had any leeway to "make that song his own".  He would never record that song as written.  I was really surprised that he didn't try to "hip" it up, rap, beat box, something.  Ballads are definitely not his strong point.  One of our local radio guys has said from the beginning of the season, that a girl would win.  He has really complex conspiracy theories.  If the producers told Blake to sing that song as written and not try to put any kind of spin on it, then Hmmmm.


Wonder too if that song was selected on specualation of a Melinda/Jordin finale.  Battle of the divas.

Too bad for Blake.  It was a rough night.  He's my fave too!!

Newsflash people, no they don't pick a single for the benefit of one contestant. Every single year it has been a cheesy ballad and only once have there been two different winner's singles at that was last year. And even then they both sucked. Both are going to be successful with the right material.

I am not sure any song would be good for Blake. All his songs sound the same. He should have gone before Lakisha - and it wouldn't take too much to convince me she should have gone before Phil.

for some reason I could have sworn Blake sang Gym Class Heroes - Cupid's Chokehold....but then again prob cause its a wicked song for him to sing that could be why...u should listen to the song (ie download shhhhhhhh)


GYM CLASS HEROES LYRICS

"Cupid's Chokehold"
(feat. Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy)

Ba ba da da
Ba ba da da
Ba ba da da
Ba ba da da
Ba ba da da

Take a look at my girlfriend
She's the only one I got (ba ba da da)
Not much of a girlfriend
I never seem to get a lot (ba ba da da, ba ba da da)

It's been some time since we last spoke
This is gonna sound like a bad joke
But momma I fell in love again
It's safe to say I have a new girlfriend

And I know it sounds so old
But cupid got me in a chokehold
And I'm afraid I might give in
Towels on the mat my white flag is wavin'

I mean she even cooks me pancakes
And Alka Seltzer when my tummy aches
If that ain't love then I don't know what love is

We even got a secret handshake
And she loves the music that my band makes
I know I'm young but if I had to choose her or the sun
I'd be one nocturnal son of a gun

(ba ba da da, ba ba da da)

Take a look at my girlfriend
She's the only one I got (ba ba da da)
Not much of a girlfriend
I never seem to get a lot (ba ba da da, ba ba da da)

Take a look at my girlfriend
She's the only one I got (ba ba da da)
Not much of a girlfriend
I never seem to get a lot (ba ba da da, ba ba da da)

It's been awhile since we talked last and I'm tryin' hard not to talk fast
But dad I'm finally thinkin' I may have found the one
Type of girl that will make you way proud of your son

And I know you heard the last song about the girls that didn't last long
But I promise this is on a whole new plane
I can tell by the way she says my name (ba ba da da)

I love it when she calls my phone
She even got her very own ringtone
If that ain't love then I don't know what love is (ba ba da da)

It's gonna be a long drive home but I know as soon as I arrive home
And I open the door take off my coat and throw my bag on the floor
She'll be back into my arms once more for sure

Take a look at my girlfriend
She's the only one I got (ba ba da da)
Not much of a girlfriend
I never seem to get a lot (ba ba da da, ba ba da da)

She's got a smile that would make the most senile
Annoying old man bite his tongue
I'm not done
She's got eyes comparable to sunrise
And it doesn't stop there
Man I swear
She's got porcelain skin of course she's a ten
And now she's even got her own song
But movin' on
She's got the cutest laugh I ever heard
And we can be on the phone for three hours
Not sayin' one word
And I would still cherish every moment
And when I start to build my future she's the main component
Call it dumb call it luck call it love or whatever you call it but
Everywhere I go I keep her picture in my wallet like here

Take a look at my girlfriend
She's the only one I got (ba ba da da)
Not much of a girlfriend
I never seem to get a lot (ba ba da da, ba ba da da)

Take a look at my girlfriend
She's the only one I got (ba ba da da)
Not much of a girlfriend
I never seem to get a lot (ba ba da da, ba ba da da)
