You never know. I think Lauren is the next Carrie Underwood.

I was not a fan of Carrie's when she was on AI. [I wanted Bo Bice to win]. I did not think Carrie would go on to any sort of career. Boy was I wrong! Carrie could sing, but she had no stage presence at all. I watch her strutting around the stage now, and can't believe it's the same person. I've bought several of her songs.

I think Lauren has more stage presence and charisma at 16 and at this stage of the competition than Carrie. With some coaching, some choreagraphy and some good songs, I think Lauren will go far.

I'm not discounting Scotty though. He does have a great country voice, though its not my style. I feel bad for being so hard on him, .... I didn't know he was only 16. With some coaching, I think he'll also have a good career ahead of them.

I don't think either of these two are going to fade into woodwork like other #1 and #2 finishers have. They're both winners for having gone so long. The real winner is the one who places 2nd and isn't locked into the idol contract past the first year.

Hey, did I miss Idol last night? I recall now that Ryan said it would air one day earlier this week.

Yes ,you did but you should be able to watch the show on line at FOX TV.com

I was a huge Carrie Underwood fan when she was on AI but I was rooting for Bo Bice that season .I think that Lauren can have a career but I have a gut feeling that Scotty will go off to college and do something else with his life ,but I could be wrong .

I'm hoping the PVR kicked in and taped. It sometimes has a mind of its own and tapes what I like!

I will check out fox.com .... but usually websites which show aired content block out us Canadians. I know I can't watch anything on the abc website, and suspect that fox will be the same.

I think Scotty will be relieved if he doesn't win. I hate to see either of them win, they are too young to devote themselves to a career and take their childhood away.

Don't really care who wins as they both are great !! But i do agree with ruthlessboss about them being too young right now,,,,they both have plenty of talent and time. Hope they just relax and enjoy the ride,,,,

I agree that either of 'em could win, but personally feel that Lauren has a much better voice, and better vocal control than Scotty. Scotty, on the other hand, is a much better performer, with excellent stage presence, and the ability to "get in touch" with the audience. I won't be disappointed either way. Both singers will have an excellent career in the Country Music genre, IMO.

If Lauren does not win she will be devastated .If Scotty does not win he will accept it .

***Jimmy Iovine will sign Pia and Haley to contracts as soon as the tour is finished .Adam Lambert will record a CD with Haley . You heard it here first .

James Durbin and Judas Priest... PRICELESS. I said it before and i'll say it again...he should have won. But on the other hand, i'll bet he's glad he didn't since he got to perform with his Idols!!!

I did think Haley sang well last night with Tony Bennet. I like her in a "jazz" context. I see her recording like Diana Krall.

She loses me when she tries to sing anything else.

I agree 100% I don't like "screamers", but she sings jazz very, very well.
