    YEAH, FANTASIA WON BUT DIANA DESERVED IT. I AM STARTING TO BELIEVE THIS SHOW IS FIXED. FANTASIA IS GOOD, I WON’T DENY THAT, BUT HER VOICE IS NOT FOR ANY SONG IN CONTRARY TO DIANA THAT HAS MORE VOCAL RANGE AND FLEXIBILITY.

    Fantasia is Ten Times Better Than Diana!

  3. Damack says:

    Fantasia rocked the house, she is an awesome performer. I’m so glad she won. To Bluegemini just because your favorite didn’t win it doesn’t mean the show is fixed. It simply means that the majority of Americans disagree with you.

    I am so happy that F won because even though they are both extremely good, I think that F is the most artistic because she keeps on reinventing herself.

    yes , I was going for fantasia at 1st but then I noticed her running out of power at’, ‘times. Diana gave me goospons when she was singing those high notes. Fantasia reminds me of a young TINA TURNER, not Aretha Franklin. I love them both but Aretha is def in a league of her own but then again so is Tina. Imo, Fantasia could never be like Aretha because that’s not the style of voice she has.

    If you didn’t VOTE…’, ‘Then there’s no reason of being disappointed if you ask me. The show is based on the votes of the people, not on the votes of the judges or whoever. What makes this show great is that it’s unpredictable and that one of my favorites may or may not win. If it was so predictable, then the show would lose its appeal.

    Well nobody said that she needs to be like Aretha or Tina, nobody can. And of course she won’t ever be like Aretha, and she don’t need to be. I think her voice sounds different and that’s what makes her style her own.

  7. BLUEGEMINI7 says:

    I agree but the judges were comparing her not me. Did you watch it?’, ‘oh and again is not like I don’t like Fantasia and in fact, I was really happy for FANTASIA because I know she had her struggles and she will work very hard. Her style does not drive me crazy but hey America has spoken! Oh well!

    The judges wanted Fantastia from the beginning. She was great, but she had good’, ‘competition from LaToya and Diana. LaToya and Diana will still have successful careers. I personally can’t wait for LaToya’s album, tho I’m not sure she has a deal yet. Does anyone know if Diana has a deal yet? I heard that Jasmine got a deal already. I WANT GEORGE HUFF TO GET A RECORD DEAL! I ADORE HIM!

  9. AiRMERiCAxAO says:

    I honestly don’t see the big deal of this show. It was best the first season and from there it went down. I mean, really, it’s OBVIOUS that the second-place runnerup is going to be get a deal, too, so what’s the big deal about being in 1st place? it’s not like you can say “I got a record deal for my talent because I was the best”. Because the second- and often third- and other various contestants, get them to. See what I’m saying?
