I think it's pretty neat how Scotty has won the respect of the judges.
Respect because (in addition to his talent) he has principles and values
and isn't embarrassed about saying so.
He does it in a non-judgmental way.
What a fine example for *Christians of ALL ages. PEOPLE of all ages!
Scotty's in it to WIN!
(That last phrase appears to be Randy's favorite comment.)
Having said all that, I have been impressed with Haley's style & talent. She's quite unique -- almost a Barbra Striesand type. I hope it's she (or should it be "her"?) and Scotty on stage at the end. And I won't be watching. I couldn't handle the suspense.
*Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds
and praise your Father in heaven (Matthew 5:16).
Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young,
but set an example for the believers
in speech, in life, in love, in faith, and in purity (I Timothy 4:12).
