I regret tat I had nothing to contribute to the forum this year, but I just couldn't drum up much enthusiasm. In past years I've wanted to comment on each performance, but this year I didn't have anything to say at the end of each show.

Jessica's performances, while technically perfect, bored me to tears, so I was glad that Phillip won. As we all know from past years, it really doesn't matter if you win or not. I would have preferred to see Joshua in the finale, as I felt his performances showed him as most deserving. But I'm sure he will get a record deal, if he doesn't have one already.

Hoping I'm more enthusiastic next year!
