I hope Lauren can win this thing.

If she wins, she will become the youngest American Idol to win?  :)

DialIdol has Scotty way ahead. I don't think they have been wrong on a finale.

It could still go either way...you never know with the voters these days. But maybe more people voted last night than all season long. :duno:

I have said it since the Top 13 ever since Lauren performed that I was a fan. Before the Top 10 were revealed, I predicted Lauren would be in the F2 and has a chance to win it. Around the Top 8 or 9, i predicted she would win.

I still think she has a chance. To hell with DialIdol. DialIdol has failed a record number of times this season and I believe that with the unexpectedness of the finale last night, it will be ONE HELL OF A TIGHT RACE... But i'm still rooting for Lauren to win.

Lauren winning points last night -
1. The doctor coming up onto the stage and certifying that Lauren did have a bad throat but can still perform, but at the end of the day, she performed so well and people would step it up to vote for her.

2. Carrie Underwood. All Carrie Underwood's fans will unite to vote for America's Sweetheart. She performed the second song so well and I don't think there's another way to do justice to her Idol's song.

3. All the females and mommas and sons who love their mommas will spare a vote or two for Lauren because of her last song. It was the moment of the night, not to mention that she was the last performer to end the show and not only that, it was the BEST performance of the night.

4. Besides the opener, Scotty's remaining two performances were snooze-fest. You see, while Lauren's busy garnering up votes that she did not have as compared to Scotty, Scotty's not gaining any votes there.

5. Scotty still looked weird when performing. And he went flat in his last song, a couple of times. His second song was the worst performance of the night and I thought he looked weird when he swayed left and right while performing. It was not a scene  that looked too good on National TV.

No doubt Scotty has been the EXTREME front-runner of this competition with SO MANY VOTES THROUGHOUT the weeks, I can tell you for sure that tonight Lauren fought hard and that last song's going to help push ten votes or what for Lauren in every household.

LAUREN ALAINA
FOR THE WIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Joab predicts and hope with all my heart that Lauren Alaina will win.

Because she is the best representative of a good American Idol and we all know she'll do better than Scotty in terms of market album sales. :lol:

I'm trying not to be worried about the DialIdol prediction. It has definitely got me into worrying Lauren might not win but I shall come up with some weird lame excuses/explanations why it is not accurate.

http://dialidol.com/asp/predictions/Predictions.asp?week=9&sort=TD&type=score&season=10

Pia was predicted safe for Week 9 with a 7.015 voting amount. Paul had the lowest amount with 1.489. So with all things count, there's at least a 5.5 amount of parallex votes that could go either way.

http://dialidol.com/asp/predictions/Predictions.asp?week=7&sort=TD&type=score&season=10

Week 7 Jacob had a 14.402 with a second top most vote amount. In the end he was in the bottom three and Casey who had only 7.462 with second lowest vote amount predicted was actually not in the Bottom 3. At least a 7.0 amount in parallex votes that could go either way.

According to last night DI prediction, Lauren's at least 8 points behind Scotty... but we all know DI only measures those people who actually uses the DI system which is actually only a small portion of America. I daresay that with Lauren's standout performance last night, she still stands a chance.

Okay, please do not comment on a young fan boy's heart to try and deceive himself that his Idol still has a shot on winning if all you have to say is negative things about this post. I have enough of worrying to do... i don't want Crystal disappointment V2.0 :groan: :'(

 :lol3:  :neener: at Ms. Whatevia!

It could go either way, DialIdol hasn't been 100% right this year, there are so many ways to vote now. Their numbers were weird last night. At 9:22pm CDT Scotty had a score of 26.616 and Lauren had 16.293. An hour later Scotty had 24.777, Lauren had 14.986. 2 hours later. 11:22pm CDT Scotty had a score of 21.983, Lauren with a score of 13.487 and this morning the score was 19.356 and Lauren with 11.286.

I thought Scotty was overpowered by the band in the second round. Not the first time this has happened to one of the performers. I hated hearing about Lauren with the doctor came on on to tell us that she had a problem with her vocal cords, that made me worry about every little nuance in her songs.

All in all they both gave it all they had. I think if anything puts Lauren over the top will be Lauren's last song about mothers. It was an emotional song and brought her own mom to tears.

If they win because of costumes, Lauren will win hands down! She looked GREAT last night!


ETA: I wouldn't break your heart by favoring Scotty Ms. Whatevia. And Crystal Bowersox was ROBBED!  :jam:

I think Scotty performed better overall. He has been the clear front runner and favorite this year it seems. So I will say that he is going to win. No matter what though he has a guaranteed career in his genre. He has mastered that slow country sound.

It's 9PM on the West Coast, I think it's safe to post this in big bold letters!


The winner of American Idol, Season 10 is.... Scotty McCreery!
Congratulations Scotty and Lauren! Both winners!!!

We saw that... and we also heard something like: Lauren and I have been together since the beginning... and I love you baby.   :hrt:  

I think the title of the song is "I love you this big."   (Correct me if I have it wrong!)

Okay, Lauren was definitely not robbed because Scotty was a consistent performer all season long.

And maybe not winning Idol is a good thing. Ask Chris Daughtry and JHud about that. :lol:

But eww, 4 male winners in a row = snooze fest.

The odd thing is that there have been more male winners in AI history but none of them are very memorable.  :lol:

I would have felt bad for Scott if Lauren had won because the production and judges pimped her so much. But what it came down to is the fact that finale night performances don't matter much for who is going to win. Who really goes into the final performances with an open mind trying to decide who they will vote for? Everybody already knows who they like.

And obviously America had already decided from a while back that they liked Scotty better.

Anyway I don't consider myself a fan but he deserves the win and seems like a really nice, genuine guy. :congrats:

Brian Kilmeade interviewed Lauren and Scotty this morning. Scotty said he'd only had 2 hours of sleep. Asked if he and Lauren were dating, he said just friends.

As to why there are more male winners,  it might be something as simple as the teenage girls vote more for their favorite.  :lol:

I liked both Scotty and Lauren so it really didn't matter who won to me but...I thought the finale was boring.  The guest singers picked to sing with the idols were beyond strange.  My first disappointment was Haley.  She is a young beautiful woman and she is singing with an OLD 85 year old.  Loved Casey and Jack Black.  The final two did have great duets.  Thankful I had Fast Forward button!
