Has anyone here read the most recent Newsweek?

There is a long article about AI2.

In it Simon admits that Kimberley Locke was outsinging Ruben during the latter weeks and especially during the rehearsals before the show and during the show itself last week.

He also admits that he kept his praising of Kimberley to a minimal and he kept his criticism of Ruben to zero so that he could persuade America to vote in Ruben.

He said that during the final 3 it isnt about judging but about getting who they want into the final 2.

Kimberley, I am sorry you were ripped off like this. I will be first in line to buy your CD!

On another note, this proves that they all think Clay will in. Otherwise, they would have focused on keeping Clay in rather than keeping Ruben in. They know the vote totals...

Vocal talent - Clay should win
But I bet Ruben wins.

Does someone have to win?.... I don't like either of the 2 left. I'd NEVER buy either of their CDs. K-Lo! I probably would buy.

Kim Locke was singing the pants off of Ruben and Clay and should have been in the last two.Clay sounded unbelievably annoying last week and forgot the words (a requirement that is strictly followed even in the try-outs!) I hope Kimmy gets a record deal because I can stand to listen to her more than Ruben and Clay combined.

Amen to all of the above!!

Kimberley all the way, she'll have the sucsessful career out of this competiton, wait and see. If Smokey Robinson says you can 'SANG', I mean what else is there to say? The girl can sing!!!!

If ya'll had been in the first AI thread for this season, this wouldn't be quite so shocking.

Is this article on the web? Links anyone?

Me too!!! I loved Kelly Clarkson - and this year I have not been excited about any of the singers like I was for her. But if I had to pick out of the 2 left - I would go with the one who can sing the best, the strongest vocal range. That would be Clay.

But KELLY WAS AWESOME! I made my own cd out of her songs that she did on the AI 1 - and I listned to that for a long time - until Madonna's new record came out. Now its all MADONNA in my cd player. This album is just rocking my world!

I've read on the internet (I'll try find links) that Clay was asked to add a verse to the song "Vincent" not long before he had to sing, hence the 'confusion'...

But I agree with you in that I hope Kim gets a record deal. I think she's great. :D I didn't like to read that article at all... She'll show Mister Cowell etc for sure... :)

well, too bad she was ripped off. she deserved to win. i think she had the best voice!second to trenyce that it!i hope trenyce and kim get record deals!i'd be first in line.

i hope reuben wins cuz clay is ugly, to put things mildly. cant stand his face!and his voice is soo, um, whats the word?its soooo not the record making type of song. ruben can at least make some good rnb music, i'm sure.

damn, trenyce shoulda won.
