And I agree...Steve Jones is THE WORST HOST!! He just does NOT know what he is doing up there...he is rude, uncaring and just doesn't know how to be a smooth talking host...he interrupts moments he shouldn't, talks over EVERYONE and has an annoying voice!

I predict that he will NOT be back!

Bieber was auto-tuned as he sang. That's just sad.

And yeah- it turned into porn for a bit. Great for my 8 year-old niece to watch.

The Justin Bieber part wasn't even live. They taped it last week. They didn't do a very good job of trying to hide it either. When they showed the judges both Nicole and Paula had their hair up during the Bieber performance, but they didn't during the rest of the show.

The finale wasn't very good. I did like the Josh and Melanie duet though. They sounded really good together!

I hope they change some things for next year.

I'm in the minority and was disappointed that Melanie won. I was hoping for Josh or Chris to win. I think that Chris had the "X factor", which IMO is "that something different that sets one apart from the others". He composed, sang, rapped, danced, played instruments, had loads of charisma, was good with the camera, drew in the audience - he had a lot of originality. Josh was a really good singer, played instruments, and gave very moving performances.

There is no doubt that Melanie had the best voice, she was deserving hands down if this was a singing competition based on just that, but IMO it was about something more, which I don't think she has.

As I had no doubt that Melanie and Chris would end up with some kind of recording career (winners or not), I was hoping for Josh to win, because I really hate the idea of him going back to just making burritos, and as the second runner up, he was clearly deserving too.

Would you guys please stop blaming Nicole for what happened,she didn't send Rachel home, America did, so why all the hate. If America wanted Marcus to go home he would've got the lowest amount of votes but he didn't so what's the problem.
My problem is that Nicole allowed it to go to deadlock... and not because she thought Marcus did a better performance or anything. She allowed it to go to deadlock because SHE COULDN'T MAKE A DECISION. She's a judge. One of her jobs as a judge is to pick who should go through. She couldn't do that. Therefore she failed at her job.

I remember when Simon allowed it to go to deadlock too, and Leroy ended up going home. I was pissed too. However, I wasn't as pissed as I am now because he actually had a reason for allowing it to go to deadlock. While with Nicole, she just couldn't choose and because she had no other choice, "picked" Rachel -- thus letting it go to a tie, which then resulted in Rachel going home. And so yes, some of that blame should go to Nicole!

Nicole kept saying "I can't make this decision... I can't make this decision." -- Well bitch, why the hell are you a fucking judge if you can't make a fucking decision when you're fucking supposed to?!?! Yes, it's not easy. I understand that. But I can't really sympathize with her too much, because making difficult decisions is just part of the job that she signed up for.

This has me more pissed than the elimination last week. I'm not sure why, though, because I love Drew and I've always found Rachel annoying. I think it's the fact that Nicole didn't have the balls to make a decision. With Drew's elimination, even though Nicole made what was in my opinion a *wrong* decision, at least it *was* a decision.
What's funny about this is on the UK version this year Kelly Rowland refused to vote as well (it was down to two of her acts), and there was no forcing of a deadlock. It just became a 3 person vote.
