American Idol: The Season Finale

Season 9 comes to end as a sweet, shy kid from Chicago takes the crown. But it was Crystal Bowersox who kept American Idol from going down in flames.

American Idol: The Top Three

It's been a maligned season, but as we chug toward next week's finale, it could be an epic showdown as good as any in Idol history.

American Idol: The Final Four

If this were Survivor instead of American Idol, Michael Lynche would be the dude to beat. He appears to be forming alliances not with the other contestants but with Satan himself. How else to explain how this guy has made it this long when no one seems to be supporting him.

With Mad Marg gone, you no longer have to watch the show through your fingers, but things have gotten reliably lackluster, perhaps accounting for the show’s worst ratings since 2002, even getting tromped one night by Dancing with the Stars, for heaven’s sake, results that must have had Idol producers seeing visions of Paula Abdul in their sleep.

It's Crystal and then everyone else. We still have five weeks to go before we can crown her, so it makes sense to quote Crystal's own words: What's the point?

American Idol: Week #7, The Top 9 (Again)
