    The Finale Coin Toss

    After the show tonight Ryan flipped the coin to determine the singing order for next weeks finale. Scotty won the toss. He asked Lauren if she wanted to sing first or second and she picked second. What a gentlemen. Scotty will open the show and Lauren will close it.

    I'm happy to hear that Scotty is a gentleman, but his best shot would have been going second.

    Yeah...I agree! It's great that he was being a gentleman and all (I never doubted that, lol), but he should have gone second.

    Unless Lauren picks up a whole lot of votes from Haley, Scotty could sing to start the show not sing the rest of the night and he is still going to win.

    Props to Scotty for being a good guy and letting Lauren pick.

    I don't think they have as much a say in who wins as they think that they do, but Scotty is the new VFTW choice. Personally I think that they just pick the person who most of the time is actually the favorite going into the finale and make it look like they accomplished in picking the winner when they really don't.

    ^^Yeah, Lee was their finale pick last year I believe because Casey went home in third place. Their picks mean absolutely nothing at this point in the show.

    Doesn't matter to me who goes first, but that's really sweet of Scotty to be a gentleman.

    At this stage of the game it doesn't matter who goes where. People have their favorites they're going to vote for and nothing is going to make them change. I think Scotty has the strongest fan base, which is the name of the game with Idol. Haley was my favorite. I wish they had given her as much face time as they gave the others in the beginning. It might have been a whole different story. A lot of people pick favorites and stay with them throughout the season. They never even showed her audition until this week. What a shame.

    Very nice of Scotty to do. He really does have the idol crown on lock this season.

    That's exactly what I thought... what a gentlemen! Obviously singing second is the best spot, but it was very kind of him to let Lauren pick. It's going to be a great finale, I can't wait!

    Think of it this way....... he has never once gone last this season, yet he has never landed in B3. I think he actually opened the show a few times. So why ruin that streak now?

    If he wins, would he be the first winner to have never close the show before? lol

    Looking through wiki Ruben & David both sang first and I think that Scotty will make it three who have went first and won.

    Actually, I think this move just solidified Scotty's win. Now the casual voter might vote for him simply for his manners. I know that I would've done that a few years ago.
