  • I am sooooo upset about that! She had a pristine voice.

    I have come to suspect that the American public does not like to see the BEST person win. So, they vote for the underdog. Psychologically, it makes the "top" more attainable when a mediocre person is in that place.

    This is an actual proven social phenomenon. Society always tries to take out the "Top Dog".

    It is a sad, sad statement. And, it happens every season. I wish we could just appreciate excellence without all of that jealousy making us want to shoot excellent people down.

  • I thought for sure it would be Stefano. I like Pia but I wonder if people assumed she would be safe and did not vote OR maybe they took Jennifer's suggestion that she needs to "perform" more means she doesn't have what it takes. I don't think she wuld have been the winner but she should not have gone home last night.

  • I should have added that the media will make a big deal of this and I bet she really benefits from it.

  • She was good, but she bored me. I thought it was her turn. She has less pizzaz then the others, less personality.
