I don't agree. This year's runner up to win the whole thing, was only 16. Like it or not the show is geared toward teeny-boppers and I am sure that having younger singers on the show, helps in the ratings. It's not about finding the best talent, It's about getting as many people as possible to tune into the show and raise the dollar value of the advertising time.

The main thing AI needs is some tighter production, last year there where too many episodes that seemed to drag on about 15 minutes too long because of empty filler.

Matthew Metzger from the top 32 is now a regular on ABC's soap opera, "One Life to Live." He started yesterday, and his character's name is Duke Buchanan. I've seen everything he's done so far on the show, and his acting isn't that great, but it's isn't abysmal.

I've seen everything Matt's done so far. As a mean guy, he doesn't act very well. But, as a nice guy, his acting is just fine.

Yes, because he can sing, but he has a certain genre of music he should stick to (which he does in his album), just like everyone else.

If Justin Guarini gets an album, everyone gets an album.

Yeah, I guess he did have a good voice in his limited (VERY LIMITED) genre. I'll admit that. He just always annoyed the crap out of me, and I couldn't believe he stayed in as long as he did.

Guess it's just not my style. Posted Image Oh well, props to him.
