Got Something to Add?
I only tuned in to see James perform once again. And Casey and Haley. And what a treat it was to get a glimpse of David Cook. I also watched the final showdown only to watch him sing the boot song. Had I known that they would be showing it at the end, I would have waited till then. That was as bad a finale as it could get. Thank God for David Cook who performed the best song of that night.
People didn't tune into the finale for Scotty and Lauren, they tuned in to see the others like Haley and Pia, and all the others..
not at all happy with the results -.- but as an idol tard im glad idol its staying on our screen for a long time
People did not tune in to see Lauren and Scotty, as the first part of the finale proved (it was the lowest pefromance finale since season one). People tuned in last night to see Lady Gaga and Beyonce .. as well as the other eliminated contestants, not for Lauren and Scotty
if you look at half hour breakdowns of the ratings YES the audience peaked in the final half hour at 38 million...some report 36 but either way it was the most watched segment of the show...numbers dont lie....people wanted to see Scotty and Lauren...
Fabian is wrong...it did not peak at the end...You sir are an idoit...and sean you are totally right.
and the ratings peaked at 38 million during that final moments of the show when people tuned in to see Lauren and Scotty and who would win! :)
Both Scotty and lauren have rocketed to the top of Canadas itunes charts as well.....a feat I havent seen by an idol winner in awhile......and its no doubt rotting all those naysayers to no end
THE RACIST TWIT GOT PLACED WITH THE TITLE LAST NITE..A FORCED HUG WITH ASHTON..AVOIDED JACOB ALTOGETHER...HMM THE HOMOPHOBIC BASTARD WON'T LAST...HIS TRUE COLORS WILL COME OUT..AND UGH THAT LORD SHIT HAS GOT TO GO..WE'RE NOT ALL BRAINDEAD DELUSIONAL IDIOTS BELIEVING IN AN IMAGINARY THING IN THE SKY.
Please Rickey.. when The X Factor US starts .. shere with us the ratings.. and the comparation between it and AI .. Would be interesting to see it.. Thanks =)
Yep, all those anti-country jerks who said that no one was interested in these contestants are sure wrong. Ha Ha! I wonder what they are saying now! :D
The Scotty Lauren combo was obviously a winning combo....and Im not at all surprised by these huge numbers!! It was one of the best finales in years!!!!
Can't believe some people said earlier this week that this would be the lowest rated ever finale because of country
