While the jury has been calling the shots so far, the grand finale saw the 'ASC' give the public more power. While the jury still voted, they were only allowed to give one artist the highest score of 12 points. With the jury divided into 10 regions -- the midwest, the upper south, New England, the plains, the mountain region, the lower south, mid-Atlantic, the territories, the south-west and the pacific west, 6 out of the 10 gave Washington's Allen Stone the higest score, leading him to top the jury leader board. However, when it came down to the public vote, he only managed to score 254 points, which put him in 5th place. Fans were shocked to see him score that low.
