American Idol has eliminated millions, and we're down to the final 2...Clay Aikens and Ruben Studdard.

Who do you think will win?
Who do you hope will win?
Who was your favorite at the start of the show?

I think its a toss-up to see who will win, but I think that Ruben deserves it more. At the start of the show my favorite was Kimbery Caldwell:(.

Ruben has a horrible croaky texture to his voice and he sings off key too much for my liking. Don't care how adorable he looks with that cute grin.

Clay... He has a strong voice but I'm shallow and can't get past the way he looks like a pixie in makeup. Maybe if i didn't have to look at him he'll be okay. Stick him on broadway so he wont be on my TV.

Clay will win. Old ladies will vote for him.

Think: Clay (according to some major newspaper he was getting 4X the votes as Ruben in prelims, and he won last week by 2% so....)

Hope: No one (my faves are all gone)

Liked at start: Trenyce, K-Lo, and Carmen (only cause she was hot:o )

Kim C. thinks she is hot, but is really a slutty chipmunk:o . (yes I am being mean, but HONESTLY, those cheeks:o , and the fact that she is posing in Playboy:rolleyes: )

if that [moderator edit] clay wins i will be outraged. no one is lookin out for a Boardway American Idol. this is what he is lookin to sing, and all he is tryin to sing. The Kelly girl that won and sounds horrible in my opinion opted for the Pop gurl routnie, and you see she is makin it. you don't see "idols" out there makin broadway music videos and they are on TRL. if america were to use their brains, they would defintely pick Rubin who has a great R&B Voice and would defintely fit in.

Clay out!
Rubin in!

But look at America, white wins black doesn't. Clay will win :rolleyes:

If clay wins, obviously most of America is looking for a Broadway American Idol dipshit.

Go Clay :worship:

Hmm, Clay and Ruben have female fans... :) (I am a big Clay fan!! :hearts: :D ) Some of the banners at the show... Ruben Puts The Stud In Studdard? That is coming to my mind...

And if Clay Aiken just happens to be reading, or anyone who looks like him, my PM box isn't full!! :bounce: :bounce: *cough* ;)

"fag"?

Funny ... you whine about racial discrimination in the very same post that you use a homophobic slur.

Yesterday was the first AI I've seen so I'm basing my opinion on only that show.

Based on what I saw, I thought Clay was a superior singer in every way. Clay has a very clean, pure, and strong voice. Whereas Ruben has a kind of raspy quality to his voice - frankly, I was surprised at how weak Ruben's voice was. Maybe that cold he had earlier in the season was still affecting him? From what I saw of Kimberly Locke on ET, I thought she had a much better voice than Ruben.

I also noticed that Ruben had a tendency to oversing. The warbling and such should be used sparingly and as highlights, not in almost every long note of the song. Ruben would go a bit off key in parts as well.

Clay showed much more versatility and range. Both his higher notes and lower notes were fairly strong whereas Ruben kind of stayed in his middle range. Ruben should have chosen more variety in his music choices as well. All of his choices were sort of calm and low key - I'd like to have seen him belt out something strong and faster; more importantly I'd like to have seen if he COULD belt out something strong and faster. I understand the idea of going with your strengths, but frankly I wouldn't want to buy a CD where everything sounded the same.

Though, I dislike Clay's first two song choices. I thought his second song was kind of weak - there was nothing really wrong with his performance, it just wasn't anything special.

Clay performed better yesterday, but the judges and media seem to be on Ruben's side. The judges held back, but never said out loud the weaknesses in Ruben's performance. Though Simon did say that Clay could win the night, he said that Clay was off (though not explaining why) but ignored the fact that Ruben was more off. btw, what was off about Clay's performance? Was it worse just worse than his previous performances?

I can understand that Ruben is more marketable, but it's not like he's the stereotypical ideal physical specimen either. Frankly, I think much of n-sync as well as many other celebrities are as dorky or dorkier than Clay. I think I see why Clay creeps SOME people out - he has sort of a fey quality. Hopefully talent is the deciding factor.
