I am curious about this show on the international airwaves. Is this show "American Idol" not Pop Idol or various country versions popular overseas? Are people outside the US really into our American Idol?

It went as I suspected it will go. I think Jordin and Blake will both do well. Enjoyed the songs and such. I actually found the finale a bit boring .

Thank the Lord that's over with finally!

Now Jordin can get stuck with the AI people while the rest can finally do their own thing.

Peace out!

In Canada, we get both, American Idol and Canadian Idol. I watched about one and a half seasons of AI, back in the Clay Aiken/Fantasia days, before tuning into Canadian Idol for the first time. I haven't watched AI since, because IMO, it pales in comparison to ours. Also IMO, yours represents everything that's wrong with music these days, the whole manufactured aspect of it. Too many R & B diva-types for my liking, music-lite, if you will. I think we generally get a wider range of genres represented, and the competitors aren't forced into the cookie-cutter image of an Idol performer to the degree that they are on AI. Also, our judges are better, for the most part. Although we do have one pissy, speak-your-mind Simon type, even he offers more constructive criticism that the AI judges do.

As far as your other question goes, yes, I think that AI does get a lot of attention here.

Bette was horrible. Wasn't crazy about Kelly's first song - she was shouting it Much better doing Sgt. Pepper.

We needed more Blake tonight

It seemed so... anti-climatic


And what was with all the previous idols not only singing their own song, but basically doing the whole Beatles medley as well. That should have been more of the group sing than just the one 'With A Little Help From My Friends'.

Oh, and I liked Green Day as well 'Working Class Hero'

Just when I thought this was the worst season of AI ever, Taylor Hicks appeared and I was reminded that it could (and did) get worse.

Bette Midler was awful. If she's trying to promote her new Vegas show, I'm thinking she's not gonna sell many tickets sounding like that!

Did they really need to bring back Bush Baby and his friend? And then to show a picture of an actual bush baby and say they donated it to a zoo? WTF was that all about? I thought it was tacky!

I have to admit I enjoyed seeing Sanjaya again. Reminded me of when this season was actually exciting!

WTF is up with all these old-time stars? Smokey Robinson, Gladys Knight, Tony Bennett, Bette Midler?

Kelly and Carrie are definitely in a different league than all the other winners.

So I think I screwed my DVR up. I paused to let the dog out after Sgt. Pepper's, but instead of pausing it stopped. When I returned Seacrest was handing the mic to the next American Idol. What happened? What did I miss? Did they have Blake and Jordin onstage together and have a drum roll moment of announcing the winner?

I'm so annoyed I sat through the whole damn thing and then screwed up the end!

Poor Bette. She's lost her voice and doesn't seem to know it. Once upon a time, she had the most amazing voice.

How did Gwen become famous again? What the hell happened to her? Where is the cute girl and funky band I fell in love with for one song, "Don't Speak"??

I didn't see AI during Kelly's season but man, she's a knockout.

I was hoping Constantine would sing.

These are my morning after thoughts.

OMG! I totally agree. They gave poor bush baby some lines to say too..it was uncomfortable to watch....even Simon seemed embarrassed when they put the picture of the actual bush baby on the screen! seemed a bit harsh for the sake of a laugh

I didn't even watch it, I had to watch Lost. I peeked during some of the commercials and I saw Kelly Clarkson all pissed off

Definite highlight of the night!!!! Well, that and Taylor Hicks. You know I love me some Taylor! I really like that song too, much better than his first single.

They were saying on the news that Blake's routine with Doug E. Fresh was the only number during the show that had the audience standing the whole time. Everybody is saying that was the highlight. The problem though? That is NOT American Idol stuff. That just goes to show how boring this season was, since something very un-American Idol is what got people excited.

watched for the first hour then switched over to Lost. I came back during the commercials. I thought the finale was lame. those dumb awards for the bad audition people...was that really necessary? let's humiliate these people some more and give them more screen time...good idea. Big Bird it could have easily been an hour. I did like Kelly's performance though. her new song has been on the radio and it was annoying, but I really liked it when she sang it live last night. angry Kelly

I will miss Blake, although this season wasn't that exciting to begin with.

I agree! I haven't cared much for that song when I've heard it on the radio, but I'm thinking a little better of it after that performance.

I had the exact same dvr issues myself. I sat thru the whole lame ass show and at the end. I walk away from the tv and come back and it's jordin singing.. wtf????? I tried to rewind..but ugh...nada.. So I missed the end.. I guess it has something to do with the fact that the show went over the end time.
