Do you think it's a deserved win? A lot of the better singers got voted out early.  
 
Edit: personally, I would've been fine with either James, Haley, Pia, or Casey winning. I didn't even think Scotty deserved to be in the top 24. So many of his notes fall flat.

I have no idea what this is about.

Scotty? Winning? Singing?

#4 Posted by FancySoapsMan (5806 posts) -

What the fuck are you talking about?

#5 Edited by TheMustacheHero (6655 posts) -

I think he's talking about American Idol. Honestly though, if you don't want him to be successful then you should be glad he won. The runner up is usually more successful.

#6 Posted by Elyhaym (192 posts) -

So what you are saying is that Scotty from Star Trek won a singing contest? I'm absolutely lost here.

Son of a.  It hasn't played on the west coast yet.  Take it easy on the spoiler thread names, especially when Giant Bomb posts new topics on the front page.

I'm from Europe, is that like EuroVision?

What are you talking about?

#10 Edited by cnlmullen (900 posts) -

I was hoping for Casey, then James, then Haley and, finally, settled for Scotty when everyone else got voted off.  
 
He was an early favorite of mine, but I don't think he deserved to win it. I liked him better than Lauren though.

Thank God American Idol is over.

Personally, I was pulling for the guy what sang "Living for the City."

It's like Eurovision, but they are young amateurs who sing popular songs karaoke style. It's bad, but at least they are singing popular songs and not that random weird stuff you hear on Eurovision.

Is he Scottish?  By GOD if he's not Scottish there will be HELL to pay!
 
EDIT:
 
I just looked at his picture in the update OP.  He kinda looks like a douche bag.  Granted, I'm just looking at a picture but still...total douche bag.

#17 Posted by Commando (1878 posts) -

Scotty was my favorite. I liked him since I saw his audition. 
 
Lauren is just Carrie Underwood pt 2.  -  A pop singer that abuses the country genre because it's less saturated.

Yeah, but for how long?  I feel like that show is always on.

@JasonR86: No, he's actually a Brad Shoemaker doppelganger.

Casey should have won, lets just leave it at that.

#21 Edited by Commando (1878 posts) -

It's cute watching all these people pretend like they don't know what the OP is talking about. Apparently on the internet it's cool to not watch mainstream shows, so they're all acting like they don't watch the news, listen to the radio, or go to news websites.   
 
Edit: Well apparently I pissed off half the internet. If you live in another country you have an excuse. But in America it's very difficult to not know about it. When I go to work and listen to the radio, I hear about American Idol. When I open the newspaper, it's in the entertainment section and sometimes on the front page if news is slow. When I change the TV to CNN, they often discuss American Idol. When I go to a news website like USAToday.com or CNN.com, they talk about it. 
It's hard to NOT hear about American Idol.

#22 Posted by Hot_Karl (3309 posts) -
@H2Oyea: That looks like Brad so goddamn much. Not that Brad's a douchebag (not at all), but ...there's a resemblance there. 
 
Also, dude's born in 1993, which freaks me the fuck out. I'm at that point in my life where A.I. winners/contestants are significantly younger than me.
#23 Posted by iam3green (14390 posts) -

awww, i was hoping for the hot girl. i didn't watch this season. i only watch american idol in the beginning of the season because i think it's funny to watch the people make a fool of themselfs. they go on start crying because they didn't make it. there are some freaks that show up on the auditions.

#24 Edited by DillonWerner (1522 posts) -

Like SXE Phil said, looks like he lives with his mother and buries bodies under the floor boards.
 EDIT: I hate his smirk.

American Idol's still on? And people still watch it?

#30 Posted by Solh0und (1757 posts) -

This reminds me....Whiskey Media should have a site dedicated to music.

#31 Posted by Toxin066 (3254 posts) -

Scotty has an outstanding country voice. I'm satisfied with his victory. Of the final two, he is superior.

I legitimately had no clue as to what the OP was talking about. After going to google, I was surprised to realize that the American Idol season was still ongoing. I'm sorry that you're more in tuned with mainstream network television?
#33 Posted by DonChipotle (2693 posts) -

Didn't Simon leave that show thus taking away the only thing people watched that show for?

#34 Posted by Bribo (592 posts) -

Did he win a Curious George lookalike contest?

#35 Posted by CableCarrier (58 posts) -
@Toxin066: I agree that he has a great country voice. Very Randy Travis-ish, as I hear it.
#36 Edited by beej (1674 posts) -
@Commando: No, I literally had no idea what the OP was talking about. I don't pay for cable so why/how would I know about this? Am I being cute right now?
 
Edit: and insofar as news is concerned I don't ever watch television news, and I tend to gloss over the entertainment section. Sorry if there's nothing about American Idol on Al Jazeera.

Well when I go to work they talk about American Idol on almost every radio station. Change the TV to CNN, and they talk about American Idol.  
Read the newspaper, and they talk about American Idol. Go to any news website, they talk about it.
 
I mean I don't see how anyone could not know about it.

I really had no fucking clue....
 
Sorry I don't watch TV that much, I'm obviously just being a dickhead for the internet cool points....

@Commando: Well I think it's flattering you find me cute, I mean I bet you live a ways away from me, what with your Auburn avatar, but we can make it work if we believe in the power of love.
#41 Posted by Afroman269 (7387 posts) -
@Commando: I barely watch television unless it's for occasional headlines and daily stock market talk. I don't read the newspaper and I haven't visited any websites that mentioned American Idol except for Screened, which I just went on 5 minutes ago. Oh, and the people at my work don't care for mainstream t.v. so yaa......don't assume people are acting like an "elitist" because they don't know what the OP was talking about is all I'm saying.

It's pretty easy.  I own an ipod, so I don't listen to the radio.  I have netflix, so I don't watch cable.  And I have the internet, so I don't buy the newspaper. 
#45 Posted by TheFreeMan (2712 posts) -

I feel that either the dude who sung all the rock songs or the dude who played the standup...bass...thing should have won. I can never remember their names. Once they got voted out I stopped watching.

#46 Posted by CableCarrier (58 posts) -
@Daveyo520: Me too, kinda. Like, I figured that the show wasn't long for the world once Simon Cowell left. But I guess it's doing fine?

When Commando talked about how he knew the contestants and who won because it was all over the place in his life for a moment it was like this weird alternate history where American Idol was still the freshest thing on TV.
 
Like I knew Steve Tyler and Jennifer Lopez was on it now, but that's it.

It's cute watching people say that it's cute that other people don't know what the OP is talking about. Apparently on the internet it's cool to pretend that people who don't watch American Idol-- which in all honesty, lost it's appeal after the third season-- are a group of non-conforming mouth-breathers.  
 
They didn't know who Scotty was, why the are you acting like everyone in America is watching American Idol? Did I miss the "Watch American Idol Everyday" rule when I was reading the "How To Be A Real American" handbook? Whenever I check news online, I don't go to the Entertainment section, because I don't consider that relevant and I'm sure that several people do the same.

Woah there cowboy, calm down. 
First, I said nothing about watching it. I talked about your daily lives and routine ways of hearing it. And I understand how some people might not care about what's going on in the world so they cut off all news sources. 
But I found it odd that the entire first page is full of people who specifically went out of their way to ask "who's he?" when they could've just ignored the thread since it didn't have anything to do with them.
