    'American Idol': Grading the past winners

    Carrie Underwood: A+
    Season 4
    Current age: 28
    Number of albums: 3
    Total album sales: In the tens of millions.
    Other gigs: Acting roles in “How I Met Your Mother” and the biopic “Soul Surfer.” Was voted “World’s Sexiest Vegetarian” by PETA in 2005 and 2007.
    Highest point: Nearly all of them — Underwood is the poster child for post-”Idol” success.
    Lowest point: As the biggest star of the “Idol”-ers, she is partly to blame for the country-vs.-country snoozefest sure to come tonight.
    Today: Probably sleeping on a bed of money.

    I don't see anything indicating that this person thinks all country music is a "snoozefest". Even people here have said that this is going to be a boring finale. I think all this person is saying is that there are a lot more people trying for success in country on Idol because of Carrie's success. And that led to a Scotty vs Lauren finale. I think the "snoozefest" comment was leveled at Scotty and Lauren specifically, not country music in general.

    Loved it! My favorite:
    Total album sales: More than 10 million, second only to Carrie Underwood among “Idol” winners.

    Gotta admit, he loves Carrie. I love the review, and IMO he's "right on" about the other winners. Snoozefest comment is funny.

    I agree! I am looking forward to tonight - although I will not be home to watch it live so I will have to have my friend text me Scotty's #'s (although they should be 01,03,05 - right?)

    I agree the snoozfest is more shot at the fact that at the hight of the game there is no more forward momentum left at all.
    It is a easy breeze to the finsh line with both as winners.
    This has nothing to do with country music except that there is a general perception that the producers and judges manufactured this whole thing to get where we are so there are no surprises in store whatso ever.
    The only thing I can see happening which I would love, is if Scotty really came out swinging wanting that crown. He seems like he can be fairly competative (it's in a guys dna) and he probably really wants that title. Lauren, I don't think she has even woken up yet to even realize this is a competition. She acts like she is at a celebrity boot camp for young starlets. She need not win, only graduate.
    And she will. So there is no point left in trying.
    Snoozfest!

    THIS. Why I will not be watching this week. I will watch Carrie's performance(s) when available. Period. I am so over "manufactured" so-called "celebrities" -- just give me true, God-given talent and I'm a happy camper!!

    Agreed. And you bring up a really important point.
    The whole premise to Idol was supposed to be giving America a chance to vote for what they wanted.
    But because the show got so big and is invested to make so much money, they really do force the show along now. IT does not feel participatory anymore.
    Haley being made out to be the evil step mother to Laurens cinderella was proof positive that manipulation is alive and well in the mass market.
    Why? Cause it works!

    It will be interesting to see if the viewership drops off for this week. I have read on many blogs the dissatisfaction of these two in the finale, and how they were pimped to be in the position they are now in. However, I am sure that is why they have BIG stars on to prevent lower ratings. This is not truly "America's" choice, imo. I am using my power (by not watching) to voice my disapproval of the judging (or lack thereof), the marketing, manipulation and manufacturing of the "winners" chosen by the producers, etc. and not America as a whole.

    Curiously, I think the buzz (negative or positive) will actually add viewership.
    I think this will be a well viewed finale.
    Now if they come out tonight and truly bore us, then you may be right and tomorrow may suffer for it.
    Alot is riding on tonight.

    lol... what makes me kind of irritated is what Nigel just said.... He talked about how "if" Scotty wins.. he will be the biggest selling Idol winner ever. Wth? lol. First off... I think that already gives us an indication that Scotty must have been consistently ahead in votes each week... so that shows he will probably win. But the whole "Biggest selling Idol" comment doesn't sit well with me.

    HAHAHAHA! Bull****! :P Nigel is no Simon Cowell and Scotty, although I really like him, is no Carrie Underwood or Kelly Clarkson!
