TIA SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE AMERICAN IDOL WINNER.......... COME ON SHE WASN'T ONLY THE BEST SINGER SHE WAS ALSO THE BEST PERFORMER , AND SHE WAS LIKE A MODEL THE BEST THEY HAVE EVER HAD ON THE SHOW AND SHE GOES SOMETHING IS WRONG THERE........ LET'S START VOTING FOR THE WORSE PERMORMER AND MAYBE THIS WON'T HAPPEN AGAIN JUST LIKE IT HAPPEN TO ADAM LAMBERT! EXCEPT THIS HAPPENED ALITTLE TOO SOON AND LET'S HOPE THE RIGHT ONE GOES NEXT WEEK!

I THINK THEY SAVED A CONTESTEST TOO EARLY IN THE SHOW THERE WERE ALOT BETTER ONES THAT THEY COULD OF SAVED LATER IN THE SHOW THAT WERE ALOT BETTER THEN THE ONES THEY DID SAVE!

My husband an I was terribly dissappointed with the results of the voting based on last night's show. Either American Idol needs to change the way the voting is done (i.e. having judges at least have a percentage of say in the matter of who goes) or the winner of American Idol will end up like they have the last several years. Nonmemorable. Who can actually name who has won American Idol since Carrie Underwood? I couldn't tell you. I guess America had its vote, but as you can see by the lack of interest in the winners or follow-thru with CDs and actual hit music, the most talented person did not win each season. You never see or hear of the most recent winners. I thought whoever won would have talent and be able to carry stardom. What with geographical areas voting for their local guy, talent has nothing to do with who wins. There are at least 4 people still in the running that should have been voted out before Pia. It's okay, because we've totally lost interest now. Pia will be able to make something of herself, because she had star quality. In talking with others that we know who watched, they are done with the show too. Bye Bye American Idol. That's 2+ hours a week we can get back in our lives.
P.S. If you come up with a different way to elect the Idol, let the public know, and we might give American Idol another chance.
