Who will win?

Okay after the final performances last night, who do you think will win? A local news report today said that Jordin was a sure win and that she just showed the judges her best last night. Do you agree with them? Why or why not? I believe that vocally she is way above Blake. However, I also think that Blake is a better entertainer than she is. I believe that what ever happens, Blake and Chris Richardson will end up with a duo and make a lot of money!!

Jordin better win because Blake is so gimmicky and corny it is not even funny. So he can sing rock songs and sound like the original. But how hard is that? Most rock singers aren't good vocally at all. And do we really need a gimmicky winner for the 2nd year in a row and have them fall flat on their face because they can't sing? If Blake wins, it will discredit the show as a singing competition and turn into who can do the stupidest thing that people will get tired of almost instantly. Jordin is the clear Idol and better win.

I don't feel that Blake is a gimmick but I do think that he has done too much beat boxing this year. However, I think that is what will sell his albums too! Most rock stars are very good at what they do although several do seem to have gimmicks. I don't see how you could say for the second year in a row, as Taylor Hicks was truly the better singer last year! He didn't have a gimmick just a strong following- SOUL PATROL!!

To each their own, of course :D I never liked Taylor so I am biased against him. I just don't think Blake will be more than a one hit wonder. He is a good performer, but I honestly don't think if I heard him on the radio, I would keep that station on. We will see though!

I think he would do better than a one hit wonder. However, I personally wouldn't listen to him on the radio as I don't listen to that kind of music. I am personally a country music fan!!

I've been supporting Jordin all along. I personally dont like Blake's style. I agree that she is vocally better than Blake. Keeping my fingers crossed for Jordin.

I am crossing my fingers too. I didn't like Blake to begin with but I do now more than I did in the beginning. I think he has talent but not the voice for Idol winner.

Personally, I enjoy listening to them both. Jordin is the better singer by far especially with the last song, but Blake is an awesome performer. Overall, I personally think that it will be Jordin. I am proud of her, and think for 17 she is Awesome. I just wish her the Best, but at the same time, I know Blake will do well also. This was a Great finale.

Jordin is young and she will sell a lot of albums that is why I think that she will be the Idol this season. Isn't it about time that a teen won it anyway?

I hope Jordin wins. Although Blake is a better performer than her, vocal wise Jordin is far ahead from Blake. The winning song, "this is my now" i think sounds better on Jordin. I almost shed a tear at the end when she got a bit emotional hehe. Blake's take on the song was, like simon said, abit odd. I hope Jordin wins.. just because i want someone who really sings to win it. i was rooting for melinda until last week. But since she's out, i guess it should be Jordin.

I thought that she done a better job on that song too. As you said, his take on it was a little odd. I was impressed to see Blake do a song without beat boxing in it last night. I had waited for that. Anyway, I think Jordin is it!!

I agree with what the judges said last night. Jordin should win because it is a singing competition and she was at her prime last night. Although, Blake is a performer. If America votes on performance it will be Blake, if they vote according to the singing, it will be Jordin~ personally, I am routing for Jordin.

I would agree with you on this. I think that is what it comes down to this year is if they vote for entertainer or singing. I voted for Jordin!!

I think it will be Jordin, but they are both winners. They both have come a really long way.

You are right about that! Both of these young people have came a long way this season and they have had a great ride and I am sure that both will get a recording deal this year.

I think Blake is going to win, even though I voted and want Jordin to win. I like Blake and he will get a record deal but I want Jordin to win. I think she did a better job on the song "this is my now". She was so emotional. It was a great show.

I really don't think that he will. His second song last night wasn't good and I don't think he done as well on the last song as Jordin did. I hope she wins as we could use a young Idol for this season.

It has been Jordin that I am hoping to win ever since this season started. She is young and theres a lot for her to give and at a very young age she really got it and I believe the song is really for her. She sang the last song with flying colors and I am really happy for her. The last nights performance alone was an indication a proof that she is really the next american idol.

Well as we all know, Jordin did win this seasons' Idol! She really was excited and she done wonderful getting through her song without crying too much.
