I'm of the opinion that the judges & producers rigged it so a girl would win,
I've quit watching this season, I'll try it next season!!!!!!!!!!
Mariah is deadly dull on Idol but I'll say this for her, her new single with Miguel is a good summer song and WAY better than anything Xtina put out while she was on The Voice.
It obviously was rigged for a girl to win and one will, though with the lowest ratings A I has ever had.
3 songs and twice jimmy says the Kreedom and Angel won the first 2 songs. Has he gone along and lost his hearing. Dazzle sparkle and delight. Kree is not an emotional singer and Angie is all teeth and eyes and empty vocals while Candice is just superb. I think she will get a contract because she has the voice, the range, the understanding of a song and how to deliver it. I did not like that last note on Somewhere but other than that she was spot on.
I think you mistake me for someone who cares.
So do we think Candice will be the "shocking elimination" tonight? And does the bug-eyed beaver have this hole thing wrapped up already? Does anyone even care?
Angie is good, but not exceptionally great. She doesn't have the versatility that Kree and Candice have. Those two seem more like natural born singers. They would also make for a better finale next week. Unfortunately I typically don't think the same as the average AI voter.
Sgt Pepper, I hope you have some celebratory GIFs now that Randy Jackson has announced AI12 is his last season.
Woot! That was unexpected. But so right.
Randy Jackson AND the donkey face cunt getting the boot???

Who knew after such a hot mess of a season, I would actually get the Candice/Kree finale I wanted? I guess that exodus of hormonal tween-and-cougar voters really helped the best singers rise to the top.
Lazaro's reaction said it all:

not an angie fan but thought she was consistent during the final three and i thought kree's sad back story pulled in the votes (not sayin she isnt worthy of top two)
http://gaybull.tumblr.com/My new and improved (still working on it) blog. Pictures and videos to watch and download.
Candice and Kree were BOTH fantastic tonight (best finale since Adam and Kris, easily). I'd ultimately vote for Candice but I'm sure Kree will win and that's not bad at all.
Also, Amber Holcomb showed up to her TV Line post-Idol interview wearing a shirt (pyjamas?) covered in donuts. Would that she had shown ANY of that personality on the show.
I thought Kree's first song was a real sleeper. I almost fell asleep and she almost did singing it. Candice doing Chasing Sidewalks was very well done. Kree's possible single was very nice as was Candice's. I'd buy Candice but not Kree. The final song from and earlier performance were both great but Candice has a voice for the ages. If Kree wins as I suspect she might considering her country singing then fine because Candice will have a great career. If someone gave Kree a personality boost she might but she is so lackluster to me in all her performances. I don't get that OMG feeling ever from her.
I think you mistake me for someone who cares.
OMG CANDICE WON!!!! My early favorites on this show almost NEVER win so allow me to geek out right now!
I know the ratings were down but for me this was a great season and my favorite since Season 8. I got my Danny Gokey villain (Angie) who went out right before the finale, thereby maximizing her heartbreak. I got my Sanjaya clown (Lazaro). I got my favorite two IN the finale and my absolute favorite as the winner. I got one of the best performances ever on the Idol stage ("Lovesong"). I got a new judge to make fun of (Mariah) and a new judge to J'ADORE (Nikki, obviously). AND Randy fucking Jackson finally decided he wasn't inittowinit anymore. So what's not to love?
Star of the Season: Nikki Minaj
Performance of the Season: Candice Glover's "Love Song"
Villain of the Season: Angie Miller

I haven't watched regularly since they kicked Melinda and LaKisha off and let little bible thumper Jordin Sparks win so I watched the first night of finals...the first time I watched at all this season...and I was bored to tears. I got through two of the songs from each of them on Wednesday and I had to change the channel...
The only winner I ever really loved was Fantasia.
I didn't watch this season but others around me have and I have seen a few of Candice's clips on youtube and Diva can blow. I just hope like hell they give her the right producers and songs. Maybe since MiMi is at the end of her career, she can offer up some songs or hit producers for her to work with but I'm sure the "Idol Machine" has already laid out a bad plan. She may have to wait until her 2nd cd or on her own to follow what she really wants to do but congrats!
He got that thickness, the kind that make you get up makin' biscuits with breakfast, so gone - Jill Scott - So Gone
I tuned in to as much of the finale as I could stand and I gotta say I wish they had an all stars version of the show...that is what they need. My favorite two performances that weren't winners...one came in #4 and the other #5
Tamyra Gray (Season One) The best IMO
Trenyce (Season Two)...damn...Ryan looks so much younger here in this clip
It sounds like Nicki is bailing after this season. I'm losing VFTW AND Nicki Minaj after this season, how will I ever cope?? BTW the fact that every comment section in every American Idol article on the Internet is jealous haters slamming Nicki for being a terrible judge because "she can't sing" is so annoying. Because Simon Cowell could totally sing and wasn't totally loved anyway.
You know Idol, sometimes you DON'T have to pander to the bigots. Nicki Minaj brought your show more relevance in the blogosphere than it had any right to expect and maybe that's enough. Getting rid of Mariah and Randy makes perfect sense, but why not keep Nicki for the younger viewers and get two more Keith Urban-like seat-fillers for the bigots and the grandmas?

Wow, could they not have given Mariah more time for her rushed medley? I mean seriously, what was that?
AI has never/will ever produce a singer as big as MC. Considering she received 5 minutes and 12 seconds of screen time on one of America's highest show I don't think that was "rushed".
Mariah Carey Performs Live! on AMERICAN IDOL SEASON 12
The only reason I tuned in this season was for Nicki... and ended up loving Idol while I was at it. This was the first Idol season I watched from beginning to the end. I "tried" watching the Voice, but I didn't like it. The fact that idol has had and "still is" making the biggest stars in the business in this generation says volumes, despite any ratings. I'm looking forward for next season and Queen Candice's evolution of course.
The ratings for the finale were way, way down from last year and way, way, way down from to 29 mil who tuned in a few seasons ago.
Mariah may be able to sing but she is a poor judge. Minaj was just out and out fun. Urban looks great in jeans even as he and his amazon wife get into the middle years. But I give Mariah credit for recognizing and throwing glitter on Candice for her Lovesong performance which was an absolute joy to listen to. Couldn't wait to buy it. I loved her version of When I was Your Man. And of course. I am happy that Candice won because she can sing anything, DAWG!
ETW suggested they just do one night of shows like DWTS is going to have to do and like SYTYCD has to do. Then they suggested they bring back the best of the losers and let them compete against 5 or 6 of the new breed. I don't think you have to be a singer to judge a singer. You have ears and they are the tunnel for hearing the best, worst and in-be-tween. Get people with personalities and make the show about the contestants rather than the judges - which happened last year and this year with the Minaj/Carey feud.
On a note too, about The Voice which gets too much about the judges and not enough about the singers. Usher is nice to look at but he is so full of himself - and I am not into Levine's taking forever to make a call about who goes and who stays and his mumbling rambling critiques. Blake Shelton is probably drunk all the time - look at those red eyes - but he does have a knack for talent. Shakira I just don't get at all. So I record The Voice and like Idol I ff right through most of the critiques because they are boring as hell.

They finally got it right. One of the best Idols ever. Let's hope they don't ruin her career with subpar material.
so i read an article on imdb about the judges next season
jennifer hudson has already signed on a possible judge, and they are closing in on kelly to fill the second seat, and the third seat is possibly between clay and adam lambert. i hope to god its adam.
adam/kelly/jennifer that sounds like a good panel, a winner, a runner up, and a 7th placer who have all done really well.
Oh crap I hope that's not true. I love, love Kelly Clarkson but I feel like she shouldn't be judging AI.
I actually think the alums-as-judges idea is pretty neat -- and if they really do nail down Kelly and Adam alongside J-Hud, that's certainly a panel I don't mind looking at every week -- but the problem of celebs who can't give real critiques for fear of lowering their own Q-scores remains. Hopefully though Adam won't mind telling people when they stink since he's not afraid to throw shade for example at the Les Miz film cast on Twitter.
Now watch them get Clay instead of Adam thereby losing my interest again.
