American Idol Finale To Be Shown Live On Fox 8

In great news for American Idol fans living in Australia, Fox 8 are going to screen the finale live on Thursday morning 26 May at 10.00am.

This means Fox 8 will be screening the this week’s final performance show on Wednesday May 25 at 7.30pm.  Lauren Alaina who is 16, and 17-year-old Scotty McCreery will be battling it out for the title.

Who do you want to win?

Scotty will win, even though Lauren in 10x better than him (but then Haley, Pia and Casey were 10x better than her).

Final should have been Casey vs Pia… :(

Scotty will win – he has a strong support base and he has shown himself to control his nerves very well, and if he sticks to ballads will beat Lauren Alaina. I had picked James and Scotty as top 2 right from the beginning, but I think James had too many weeks of getting emotional and it affecting his performance, and the judges never picked him on it only heaped him with praise so when he was voted off he was devastated. I hope he gets some opportunities after the show.

I really don’t want Scotty to win. I’ve disliked him since the early episodes where he really showed the true side of his character when he didn’t care about the 17 year old boy was dumped from the group to include him. He only apologised when he was called out for it.

He was also very rude to another girl who tried to entice him into her group. Ok admittedly she was quite arrogant but he was a real jerk to her. Clearly not a gentleman in my books. Lauren for the win. Absolutely adored Pia and hope she gets a record deal out of this.

Gillian, I was a fan of PIA and was pleased to read that she was signed up the week that hse was voted out.
“”The 22-year-old New Yorker — booted from the Fox series Thursday — will record her debut album under the Interscope Records imprint, which is chaired by Idol mentor Jimmy Iovine.

“Pia is being signed to a deal with Interscope Records who are rushing her into the studio to record an album ASAP,” a source familiar with the contract talks tells Us. “Starting [Thursday] night after the show, Interscope told her they wanted her and first thing [Friday] morning Interscope brass started calling every top songwriter and producer in town to get an album together and rush release it.”
