Is Rex the one from Nfld? I never really watched it until this year - there is a New Brunswicker in the running tho I have to admit while she sems to be a nice girl whose family (and entire town for that matter) is having some bad luck - company town where the company was closed down in large part thx top dogital cameras, she is a weak candidate and the odds of her winning are not great. - Anyway, I watched the first part to see if she would continue to hang on. She did - not even in the bottowm 3 much to that Judge's chagrin (Zack?) I think. I like the fellow from Nfld who is rated as number one to win by a gambling place - Suzi is no 2 but it is assumed because of her genre (a little too specialiozed, heavy metal or whatever), she will not win. I like Amber also and she is rated no. 3 by the bookies.
I watched two shows of the 1st Idol when Ryan Malcolm won - I was somewhat amazed that the fellow from NS came 2nd and now he performs on my hospital's telethon (Gary Beals - noce guy to talk to but I am not crazy about his music either, lol)
I do hope Casey will fo well butI hope either the Nfld contestant or Amber win (tho I agree she needs to sing something besides ballads!) And btw, I actually KNOW the host! He is a family friend.
(but I think of him as a kid, lol)
