Last night on American Idol, I thought Lee choked under the pressure. There is a reason that I have never been a champion. I tend to crumble under the pressure. Lee should lose. Lee didn't rise to the occasion. Sorry.
With that said, my prediction is that Lee will win American Idol. People are saying that he's more marketable as an artist. I guess the show should be renamed "American Cash Cow".
I've always looked at American Idol as a show that showcases undiscovered talent and gives them a place to make an impression. Over the years, American Idol has turned into a place to judge an artists potential for future success in the pop culture climate of NOW. Is Crystal the next coming of Lady Gaga? No she isn't, but she shouldn't have to be the next Lady Gaga.
It seems like people are judging less on talent and more on the money making potential of the artist on the stage. Lee shouldn't win the competition because more Americans think that Crystal won't sell records. If Lee wins the show tonight, I would like to think that it's because more people think he's a better performer. I think that Lee is going win because people are afraid to look at a girl with dreadlocks and a guitar make a commitment...during a FREE VOTING PROCESS!
Look, if you watched American Idol last night (and this season) and think Lee is more talented than Crystal, please follow me to the end of the hallway where there is an empty cardboard box. I'd like you to please deposit your ears into the box because you don't know how to use them.
This of course, is all of a matter of opinion. My opinion? Crystal was far and away the best performer during last night's final performance show. Lee seemed to choke under the pressure. There is nothing wrong with choking under the pressure. Some people aren't good in a competition setting. Some people trip on the big stage. I'm one of those people. That's just who I am. It appears, that's who Lee is as well.
Lee is my brother from a different stumble. Crystal has the skills and the ability to step up in the moment.
Final prediction: Lee wins. Crystal should win. Both contestants get overshadowed by Simon Cowell, who gets choked up in his goodbye message tonight.
I think if people were just voting for who would make the most money, Crystal would not have made it this far. There were other singers that would have been more "marketable" that could have made it this far and they didn't. So I dont think its fair to say that "It seems like people are judging less on talent and more on the money making potential of the artist on the stage. Lee shouldn’t win the competition because more Americans think that Crystal won’t sell records."
I personally like Lee's sound more. If I had a choice to listen to Lee or Crystal, I would chose Lee, but I believe Crystal has risen to the occasion more and should be the next Idol. Lee did choke last night and it was a bummer. But remember the week before that he blasted everyone away. Crystal has had her bad weeks also. and No I am not putting my ears in a box. lol
I couldn't agree with you more. Lee has a nice voice, but the talent truly lies with crystal. But if idol were more dedicated to finding talent, Adam would have won over Chris. How do you think Casey stayed around so long? Marketability (based on looks).
