Just about to the point of not listening to the show any longer, because of the terrible audience SHRIEKING!!! I know I repeat this, but it just goes on incessantly... when Carson's talking, or when anything is happening. Between that and the unbearable "skybox with Christina", and the incessant genuflecting praise (rather than critical review) from the judges for every performance (and Adam's inevitable "you know I'm a fan") the filler details of the show are horribly produced.
Nevertheless, it will be between Danielle and Amber. And Danielle (a mere age 16!!!) will/should win. She is the next Carrie Underwood / Kelly Clarkson star to come out of a reality show. She is good as Jewel. She's fabulous.
So for this reason, to have birthed such a truly wonderful young country talent who (unlike the winners of the past seasons) will actually be a new singing star... this season's been a success.
(Note: I'm not a country music fan, but Danielle is truly special.)
