Last year it was Adam Lambert ,top pick anticipated to win but as it turns out Kris took the crown,this year hot favourite crystal bowersox after a solid performance endeared her to a lot of viewers and votes but apparently not enough to win,is it my cynicism or are results predetermined despite what the producers claim.not disclaiming the talent of Lee dewyze but seems Crystal ought to have been the winner based on performance n viewers choice,at least that was one impression from watching the show

I don't pretend to know if the results are pre-determined or not, but they ought to find a way to limit the votes. Only a certain # allowed from the same phone #, e-mail address, etc. But it doesn't really come down to who is the best in this show, more like who has the most persistent fans.

You have my complete agreement there,persistent fans,remember reading about it last year ,vaguely about voting done in blocks,1 person kud in theory cast their votes ten times or more,which is how Kris allen won the title.on a personal note,i think winning or not to Crystal bowersox is a moot point,she has generated so much attention to her style that title or no title she is here to stay and charm the Sox of her new legion of fans.Probably after a year nobodys gonna remember who was idol of 2010 but everyone will know who Crystal bowersox is.

yeah, I wouldn't worry about Crystal at all, she will probably be a huge success on her own merits.

The results are not predetermined by no means. This is what happened. Crystal was great in the beginning (I was voting for her) but in the past 5 to 6 weeks she had slacked off a bit. She was not in the zone.I actually believe she was also getting full of herself. Which in this business no one likes that. She came back on Tuesday but that did not cut it with the public. I voted 1068 times for Lee because he did the best every week improving. You can't be good then slack off and then come back on finale night to win the whole thing. The voting public is not stupid. Simon even said on Ellen this past week when asked who he thought was going to win. If you had asked me this 5 or 6 weeks ago I would have said Crystal without a doubt but today I believe Lee will win. He said I have been wrong twice in the past. I'm glad that he got it right one last time before he left the show. Adam Lambert didn't win because I believe he too was full of himself and a bit to flamboyant for the voting public to deal with.

Well,if i had a stake in the voting of Adam lambert or Kris allen last year,dont think it wud have mattered one bit whether they got inflated egos or not, talent is talent and if measured in those terms,Adam Lambert is a shoulder above Kris,not saying Kris isnt any good just not on same measure as Adam, in terms of flamboyance,presence and entertaining factor.That added in your face oomph factor he posseses,so visible and is what singles them out as a natural performer.but i guess based on your response the criteria isnt as straightforward as who is the better all around performer, voters opinions or fickle sentiments does have a contributory part.Guess the voting public isnt stupid,just unforgiving and opinionated.As with Crystal and Lee,both strong performers,to me its seems so ironic that what i interpret as a boosted confidence in crystal's progress as she goes from strength to strength is seen as,like you phrased it,''so full of herself'' yup,that basically sums up the personalities of most of the celebrities in showbiz or La La land,goes to show doesnt it? Perceptions contrast so much in us different persons. Personally ,there are good and bad hair days,but with Crystal,i will forgive her everything with just that so evocative heartfelt performances at the final.

Last year I thought Adam Lambert will win in the contest. Many people are expecting him to be the winner but it turns out to be Kris. Now, i think it is just a fair fight between Lee and Crystal and it is hard to choose between the two of them. They are both a good singer. After the show, well see who get the spotlight and who will make it to stardom.

I applaud both Lee and Crystal to have come so far. I must admit that Crystal has been my favorite choice too. I think a good competition should have lots of elements of luck, mystery, obviously hard work, talent and the like as it has been for this season as well. I congratulate Lee. And for Crystal she is a winner in her own right. I wish both luck in their music career!
