Even before the contestant list was finalized it was clear that this year was going to be different, and for the better. Whether it was because of the buzz generated by the new faces on the judges panel or the expanded age limits, the talent level in the 2011 competition was being hailed as the best ever before auditions have even concluded.

I thought America had only its politics screwed up but now I know American is screwed up all over. How could you vote those silly girls and the loppy country boy over James Durbin? For heaven's sake America get your heads checked. You are guys going down all around. I WAS SO SURE FOR ONCE AMERICA WILL GET IT RIGHT AND GIVE THE IDOL ON A GOLD PLATTER TO JAMES DURBIN. I WILL NEVER EVER AGAIN WATCH AMERICAN IDOL.

He is just so vocally talented
I think he deserves to win

just listen to that voice!

he was so talented in so many ways he should of won the whole thing! he had a unique way of expressing himself! he was way more talented then most of the contestents! haley rienhart and jacob lusk should have went home before him!

he was too good to try and make a good version of big songs like most of the others, he made them his own and made them bigger through the amazing way that he performed them.

5Lauren Alaina

Young, talented, humble, all American girl next door, and she has only just begun to explore her vocal abilities. With the right songs she could have a great career in country music whether she wins Idol or not.
