Crystal or Lee?

I admit, I'm a bit of an American Idol junkie and am really looking forward to tomorrow's showdown...especially since my two favorites from the beginning have made it to the final two. Even though I love Crystal and will be happy if she wins, I'm rooting for Lee. My favoritism swiftly swayed to his side after this amazing performance:

Not only is he ADORABLE, the boy can SINGGGG.

Do you watch American Idol? If so, are you rooting for Crystal or Lee to win?

On a sidenote, if you're wondering why my blog background is plain white now, it's because it's getting ready for its magical transition to match my author website. Both my new and improved blog plus my author site will be debuting soon. Yay!

Not an Idol watcher...nor any form of Reality TV actually.

Anxious to see what the new background is going to look like. Mine could definitely use a face-lift. :)

And I was fan before the judges jumped on board, I loved that he did CHasing Cars during top 24(?) week :D
I like crystal too though, so I'd be happy with either.

I just love Crystal. I haven't watched every episode, but I love her rusty voice and passion.

I don't watch American Idol regularly, but I've seen a few episodes from this season. I love the whole raspy rocker voice of Lee, and Crystal is just as great. So I'm okay with whoever wins.
I can't wait to see your new blog layout and site!

I love them both and I'll be fine with whoever wins, but I have to say, I'm partial to Crystal! Lee is definitely adorable, though!

Wasn't he fantastic last week? And he's a local boy (I'm in Chicago). Crystal is fabulous, too, so I won't be disappointed either way. This is my favorite week for tv all year.

TerryLynn - It's totally goosebump-worthy, isn't it?

DL - Thanks! I hope you like the new layout. It might be a bit feminine for your taste - lol.

Audrey - YAY! Lee fans unite! I've loved him from the beginning too!! :)

Angela - I agree, Crystal's tone is amazing!

Adriana - I'll be happy with whoever wins too. This is the first season that I can say that.

Tess - I couldn't agree more! The hallelujah song was brilliant!

Meika - Crystal is great and she has sooo many fans...I think it will be a really close competition.

j.leigh.bailey - It's my favorite week too! W00t! I lived in the Chicago area for a few years, so that's just another reason for me to root for Lee!

I don't watch Idol on a regular basis, but I was all for Casey this year. But I'm okay with Lee being the winner:)

Amy, consider yourself tagged for the "Me In Threes!" I thought of tagging you, but didn't want to look like an Amy stalker.

It'll be fun to see your answers when they're up and ready!
