Top 2: Carrie Underwood takes us home

I love me some Carrie Underwood, and I am glad she has ditched the Kellie Pickler hair.

Carrie Underwood

She performs "Home Sweet Home" while a montage of the past season plays. I had forgotten about some of the "special" people we met during the auditions.

I swear I want to go live in the "Idol" house. It just looks like a blast!

    I think the contestants did a great job with what they were given to work with and Carrie was stunning. I did not know the song but would buy it in her version. It was a great way to end the night of rock type songs. Being on that stage doing something not your own is very hard....I dare anyone to do a better job than those folks last night!

    That rendition of one of the best Crue songs was totally brutal!!! Why don't we have Brad Paisley sing Slayer next. First of all that song should not have been on the show, it is not Metal Idol, and then have Carrie, ( who is awesome, AT COUNTRY, I will admit) butcher this well known ballad. If they wanted to use that song, they should of had Motley Crue play it on stage.....again in summary, BRUTAL.

    Love the song, but Carrie Underwood is not for me. I never quite understood all the rave about her. Maybe its because I'm not a country music fan. Maybe its because I'm a Kelly Clarkson fan, and Kelly will forever be the all time best American Idol.

    Carrie was just alright, dawg, but worst of all was the hideous song, "No Boundaries" by Kara and her co-writers! double YUCK! Whoever should win (Go Adam!), please, please don't let that be their first single!!! IT'S HORRIBLE!

    I believe Adam deserves to win! He has the star quality. His voice range is terrific and his stage presince is great! He is a Natural. Kris needs to work on stage presince. I'm not counting him out though! I voted for Adam . I love to hear him sing. Kris is adorable but Adam is hot!

    I think Carrie Underwood is an awesome singer. She can sing, she is beautiful and has a lot going for her career. I think she did a great job singing that song last night. People are stuck on just liking one type of music. You can like country, rock and roll, jazz, etc. and be a good performer. I'd take her spotlight anyday!

    Adam is the first contestent that comes close to having Carrie;s charisma and "IT" factor. He can go far, I hope they allow him to be him and don't change a thing. Whoever has produced Carrie, knew what they had and have not messed with a thing. That is why she is the #1 selling Idol of all time and may always be.

  22. Carrie ROCKED!

    You haters are pathetic.

    Carrie ROCKED that performance of Motley Crue's songs. She hit every note and she looked amazing!

    By they way, Carrie got permission from Crue to sing the song this season, and they loved her version. They also think Carrie is a great singer and person. Vince Neil gave interviews to this effect in several sources.

    Carrie ROCKS and she looked hot too! So stop the hating !

    For Bill and others if you don't like her, don't listen. After all you live in America where you have choices. And for the person who said she looked horrible there must be some jealously there because that has never been the case. Just because a person doesn't sing every genre as it was done is not a reason to bash them. Live and let live and enjoy the moment.

    Ugh! How can Carrie Underwood singing a song that ONLY Motley Crue can perform the right way be a good idea. Second, the show runs over time so she can upstage the two finalists? Give me a break.

    My other gripe is why the finalists are forced to perform these horrible songs written to be their first money grabbing single. Let them sing a song they chose instead of a song about mountains and hurricanes. HORRIBLE.

    Love Carrie, just didn't like the song, but at least it wasn't as bad as the horrible one the guys had to sing. That song was awful. I can' t imagine either of them doing it as a single. What a Flop.

    Carrie Underwood will be the BIGGEST American Idol ever.

    Anything any idol contestant can do, Carrie can do better. Allison is okay, but real rock, guns n roses, motley crue, leave it to Carrie.

    Even Motley Crue was relieved that it was Carrie singing when asked. They are like idol? what? Then they said Carrie. and they were like, oh, okay, great!

    Why does everyone feel the need to remake a classic song? Was Carrie trying to be a rocker chick with the Motley Crue t-shirt and that outfit? They should have had Kris and Adam sing that song rather than the one Kara wrote!

    B, BRIDGETTE, Carrie sounded exactly like the recording. You might not like the song she sang, but you cant say she sounded bad. It sounded the same.

    Also, you must be blind. She looked gorgeous.

    SHe looked awful and she sounded any worse. They really didn't need her to end the show, because the guys were suppose to the stars and it should have ended with them standing there together saying goodbye till tomorrow.

    Yet another AWFUL song. They really should have left that to the original artist to sing and she should stick to Country music, so I don't have to listen to her.
