well I've been watching this show for three seasons now and I have to say that this is the biggest joke of a TV show. Why are all these good singers being voted off and Sanjaya is still there? Is America so bored with itself that it actually lets good singing talent slip by the wayside in order to allow someone like Sanjaya remain on the show, merely because people feel sorry for him? Were is the Talent the show is based on?

i agree ryan is rude to simon, paula says way too many nice things to the contestants. it's like she's scared that they might not like her. who cares tell the truth like simon. it might be a little arsh but it's the real world. i like american idol but it's time for the singers to sing songs up beat i'm tired of the slow and safe songs. it's like they are scared to go for the gold and settle with the bronze. good luck to the contestants.

I think that Chris was an excellent singer and will definately have a career in music. Hello! He's so talented that some record label will snatch him up. However, he has shown in his post-Idol interview that he is not American Idol material. What a conceited jerk. An Idol must be gracious and grateful to the public and to his/her peers. What Chris has shown is nothing short of ungratefulness for the great opportunity and a whole lotta self-absorbtion.

Chris has alot of talent and will be snatched up by some big record label. I'm absolutely positive that he will go far. However, he is obviously not American Idol material. Has anyone seen his interview?!? What a conceited jerk. An Idol must be gracious and kind and appreciative of the opportunity to be an Idol contestant. He's just ungrateful and rude and self- absorbed. Good luck, Chris, but get and attitude adjustment.

I can not believe how rigged American Idol is. I think they know who is going to win before the show even starts. I can not believe that people would vote in a man who looks like an old man and can not sing worth beans. There were so many other contestants that sang much better than he did and yet he still won. Either America has lost it or it was totally rigged. I will not watch the show after that pick....
