Last night spelled the end of my chances in the "American Idol" pool I'm participating in. Did you predict the finale?

(Nearly forgot Idol was on tonight!)

I totally didn't predict the final - I thought for sure it would be Jena and Alex! I shall keep that in mind while telling myself that Caleb can't possibly win:)

I don't now: he's going second, which puts him in a great position to make the last impression. I think Round One goes to Caleb, easily.

I agree about round one. I'm surprised Jena decided to go first!

Maybe she doesn't want to win? :)

Good point - runner-up isn't always a bad thing (looking at you, at Aiken!)

And Adam Lambert, too!

I think the lesson is that "Idol" can give talented people a leg up, and it's up to them afterwards to see what they're going to do with that.

How did I forget Adam?!

It's true what you say about the leg-up - didn't Daughtry come fourth, and he's not doing too badly.

Now I'm going to the Voice results (go Josh!)

I'm rooting for Josh, too! To me, he's exactly what the Voice is supposed to be about. Unfortunately, I'm often disappointed with the results of that show.

I honestly thought I liked all the Voice finalists equally until that last song of Jake's. Talk about a "Holy shot, what just happened?" moment!

LOL, Usher's not going to let Adam forget losing Josh, is he?

No, and he shouldn't! It's a byproduct of their battles format. They pair people up for drama, but sometimes they lose great singers as a result. I'd love to see Usher win.

Yeah - there were so many battle pairings I looked at and thought "noooooooooooooooo!!!!!!"

It's about time someone who's not Blake or Adam won!

(I was so glad Jake brought Kristen back - she was the one I wanted to win from the beginning. She's one of the more natural performers of this season)

I think Caleb made a smart choice for his second song.

I think round two is a draw.

Agreed. I'm with the judges on the fact that Caleb's vocal acrobatics overwhelmed the song.

Round three will be interesting, because I like Jena's single better. What will Caleb do with his to make me like it? :)

I wasn't at all impressed with it, but then I'm a lousy judge of a song's potential.

If they wanted to capture his strengths, why did they have to give him a ballad? It's trying to be both sort of '80s rock and millennium pop, and it's just nowhere. He did his best with it, though.

I actually really liked Caleb's song, lol

Hey, if he wins, I'm sure it will grow on me. :)
