    • Get Over It!

      8.0
      For you people who are griping about how unfair it was and how magnificent your LaPorsha was, get over yourselves. LaPorsha didn't have the whole package and actually became quite boring. Trent truly deserved to win.



    • Trent took title.

      I just started watching Idol this year. My only regret is that I didn't start watching it 14 years ago. It was an amazing show. I enjoyed it so much on many levels. I adored Dalton, but did admit that he wouldn't and shouldn't win, at least not against this particular competition. My absolute favorite was Trent. I thought he truly deserved to win. He just keep getting better and better. At the beginning of the competition I didn't even know he was capable off singing the way he was singing toward the end of the completion.. He was the perfect student and just kept working and working and evolving I didn't actually think that anyone would be able to beat LaPorsha though. She has a magnificent voice but her music does not move me at all. She has this unreal God given talent,but did not seem to have to work for it as hard and she does not have the emotion that Trent has. He voice is beautiful and she can do lots wit her voice, but it isn't a unique "special" voice. Trent has all those wonderful characteristics. When he sang Sia's Chandelier I started crying. That rarely happens. I am truly so happy he took the title and as Jennifer Lopez said 2 episodes ago, "he deserves to He does and he did and America knows how to vote!! What do you guys think?moreless

      Since Philip it's been a bust. Americans are awful at picking winners. Just look at Congress.
    • Happy!

      I'm so happy Trent won!! Yes LaPorsha had a good voice but it was the same thing over and over comin out trying to be a diva standing still like she was ms thang and singing the same type of songs over and over you could tell on the finale she was out of breathe singing the opening song with Trent I guess cause it was too fast for her, not to mention she had messed up when she tried singing dead or alive a few weeks ago. Trent gave us something different every week not the same ol slow stuff, I'm glad someone won who didn't have to rely on their tragedies in life in order to make people vote for him. The show is about talent not what happens in life, they are looking for the best voice not the best sob story. Sorry if I sound harsh but it's my opinion just like everyone else has their opinions.moreless
