Now that the season is over and we've heard it all, what was your most memorable performance/song from any contestant the whole season? Top 3 if you can't pick like me. I'll go with David A. Dont let the sun go down, Brooke White Let it Be, and Jason Castro Fagile.

I would have to say that Billy Jean sung by David Cook was the most memorable. I also liked when he did Elenore Rigby. I liked it when Michael Johns did Queen. Syesha did one really good song and she ended up in the bottom three that week, I was so made. I really liked Carly's Jesus Christ Super Star, but apparently other people didn't because that was the week she got kicked off.

I liked all your choices too. But one thing you have to keep in mind is that after the first few weeks, idol voters rarely vote for the idol they thought did best that particular night. They always just vote for their favorite no matter how they do.

My absolute #1 favorite was Brooke White doing Carly Simon's "You're So Vain". My #2 was David Archuletta singing "Imagine", and my #3 would have to be Jason Castro singing "Michelle". I liked a lot of the songs this season, though, which is rare. I typically don't like most, but they had some really good performances this year.

All good choices too. I liked "Michelle" a lot better than the judges too. I thought it really suited his style. As did Mr. Tamborine Man and nobody else seemed to like that one, but I did LOL.

#1 is David Cook "Eleanor Rigby". That's when I got hooked on him, Jason Castro doing "Somewhere Over The Rainbow", and to be honest those are the only two songs that really stand out to me.

I can't remember David's version of Eleanor Rigby. I'll have to go back and listen to it. I love the song, so I'll probably love his version too. Thanks!

I liked most of David A's songs, but I liked the Imagine from him. I liked Jason singing his "Rainbow" number too. I liked Michael Johns "We are the Champions" too. David Cook's "The First Time I Ever Saw Your Face" showed such a different side of him, I enjoyed it. He just rocks so well in all the other songs. That's four. I'll stop before I give any more!

Ah yes, The first time I ever saw your face, another good one. I did like that one. I also liked Always be my Baby by David C. That was the first night I really thought he could make it all the way. Although Imagine was beautiful, my own tastes don't like it when singers change up the song quite that much. I don't know why. I like it when they sing the song mostly straight and just add a little punch or two.

No worries. He was on the show long enough that there's no way he won't at least get a recording contract. I can't remember If I fell. I'll have to go back and look that one up. But I remember Michelle and I kinda liked it. It suited him I thought, but I remember it got panned by the judges, right? Jason wasn't my favorite overall, but he was so unique, I stilled loved him.

David A " Imagine" is really a good one. He does this one very well.

I think I actually enjoyed it more last night in the finale than even the first time because I knew what was coming. The first time threw me off a bit cuz he changed it up so much, I wasn't sure if I liked it. His voice seemed spot on last night didn't it?

Yes, me too. I think this may be my favorite one by him, I don't know. It was certainly the first one that made me sit up and take notice of the guy.
