James you bring the whole package as to what American Idol is. The ther 3 are great but you , you have the whole package for America
James you rock..please bring back the 80' era...would love to hear you sing Tora Tora- Walking Shoes
Your the best in my book. Keep up all the great work - you have an amazing life ahead of you. Look forward to seeing more of you soon.
James not always who wins this competition is the best, you can see it with adam lambert, chris Dauthry the are fantastic so do you, you'll be fine, best of luck ......... big kiss from Colombia
James, remember things happen for a reason. This is not your path, but there's one waiting for you. You still have your talent, determination and beautiful soul. I only watch AI because of you and expect and want to see MORE!! You're the best!!
You are a very talented gifted person who touched me every time you where on the stage!!! You are already a star in my eyes and you will make it BIG. It's just the beginning for you and your family.. I look forward to buying your album cause it will happen!! Keep your head up and think positive things.... With Love from N.C.
James, you're the awesomest singer ever! You have the cool scarf, the hair, and the amazing voice.
You are very talented and our absolute favorite. We were so upset and I mean so upset about
you not getting into the final three. You are famous in our eyes no matter what.
WE LOVE YOU! JAMES IS #1!
james you are the winner in my eyes, I will be praying for you and your family and pray that all your heart desires come to pass.
james you just got beat by someone paying for haley to stay on because she should have went home weeks ago instead of pia
James, you have touched so many lives. I know you've touched ours. My daughter, Rhiannon, and I have been watching you and hope you do not give up your dream! Rhiannon suffers from Cystic Fibrosis, seeing you with your Tourettes has shown her that she too can accomplish anything!!! Don't give up...I will be waiting for your first albumn! Don't leave us hanging! God Bless and Don't stop believing, we haven't!!!
Hey James, You are awesome! The vote has so many dumbfounded that it seems like an error. Thanks for keeping it real the whole ride through. Anyway,I am looking forward to your first album; you are just at the beginning of an epic journey my friend.
That vote ruined many people's night and this comes from one of the many...
James, I'm sure you will be signing contracts soon and have a great future. You don't need American Idol any longer since it has betrayed you. There is no way that the popular vote had ANYTHING to do with tonight's outcome. It was rigged just as in seasons past. Many of us will no longer watch American Idol because it has displayed dumbfounded results every year. Keep up the fight and we WILL be buying your records.
YOU ARE THE AMERICAN IDOL! Know that in your heart.
keep singing you were great enough to be winner people like me still want to hear about you and youre voice. james is awesome
That was BS-you should not havre been the one to go home! You will make it bigger than American Idol. You are great!!
James - PLEASE KEEP PERFORMING!!! You are the most talented and gifted performer I have listened to in a long time. You are truely the American Idol even though the "public" votes are a joke and totally messed up. I will be waiting for your first public song release . I know it will be totally awesome!!
I think all of these reality shows are staged just to give everyone watching a shock-and-awe value. Needless to say... I will not be watching the remaining American Idol season because I DON"T CARE who wins now. I guess WipeOut will be tuned in at my home.
Have a great career James!!!!
James, you are awesome! You have a great rock 'n roll voice!! You are my American idol. I'm certain that there will be plenty of people who will get you started out there in the music industry. Never give up on your dreams. I would by your CD's when they come out. Keep on rocking James!!!
I am heartsick, James. You have been #1 in my book since your audition, and you are working so hard for the right reasons???your beautiful family. I was certain you were going to take it all. Every performance was stellar. America loves you, and music producers know that. We will buy your albums. Keep believing in yourself, because we believe in you.
2 words my rocker friend - Chris Daughtry - He also got voted out unexpectedly.... and look at him now! I'll be waiting to buy YOUR album.
If you ever need a bass player from Canada.... let me know :-P
ROCK ON BROTHER!!!
I can't wait to buy your CD's - You ARE going to make it. Talent like that does not go unnoticed. American Idol voting system needs a lot of improvement - It is so flawed, that it is ridiculous... ROCK ON James
i Cant Believe last nights show and still am in shock You were the only reason i watched the show this season .America got it all wrong
James, I tried to vote and each time I voted it said I was voting for contestant #1. I don't know what was wrong. You have a God given talent that has taken you to this ploace and will continue to bless you and your family. Have faith. Keep the music.
James,you were and still the best,people will follow you everywhere you go,i was checking AM Idol from Montreal,Quebec,every week just to see you perform...you're far from the end my friend,you are a star now
you are THE star !!!
Can't waint to see your name in lights because you know we will. GOOD LUCK IN ALL YOU DO JAMES!!!!
America got it so wrong!!!!!!! I can't believe that Lauren and Haley are still in it and James is sent home. Those girls aren't nearly half as talented as James. I'm sure he'll be more successful than whomever wins this season of Idol. I really don't care who wins now, and I won't watch the rest of the season.
James, you are really great...for me you and scotty deserves to compete in the finals although I'm not sure who will win...But you are really a very versatile singer:)
James you are the best and I have said from day one you were the next Idol I am still in shock and this has to show the producers of this show to do something with the voting . Good luck and hope to hear of you cutting a CD soon
Scotty and Lauren all the way!! We will see you two at the Country Music Awards in the near future for sure!! And James we will see you in concert real soon too!
James You Are the Winner of American Idol in my Heart. I loved watching *You* sing and entertain. The finale should be between you and Lauren. I wanted you to win. I really thought YOU were going to win it! Sorry James, American Loves You and so do I. Stay strong and remember your quote; just set your sails. Love you James.
You are the first American Idol I cried over! And I have watched many, many years, almost from the beginning of American Idol. You can make it! Believe in yourself. Your voice is awesome and inspiring, heart moving. The wrong person lost last night!
Stay strong and remember your quote; just set your sails. Love you James
I am so shocked that James was voted off. I really thought that he would win it.
He is great. Myself and my 2 teenagers love him!
