and another thing.. joe perry has stooped to a new low by performing with friggin sanjaya.. If I were a aerosmith fan I would be kinda pissed off.

Highlight was definitely Blake and Doug E Fresh.. That performance was HOT!!

the only other highlight was Green Day's performance. Other than that it was a complete waste of my 2 hours.. Certainly could of done that in an hour easily.

Not as killer as last year's finale (no OMG PRINCE!!! moments), but I liked the Doug E Fresh / Blake thing, Green Day (although jeez, how out of place was that song in the midst of all that?), Kelly (she looks great) ... I even thought the Sanjaya thing was kind of funny.

I hated the Sgt Pepper thing, I thought it was embarrassing. And I laughed when Taylor Hicks showed up just to sing and spaz out and then ran off the stage. "We don't want to talk to you even though you won last year, because your album isn't selling and frankly, you're a disgrace. Why couldn't we get McPhee instead?"

Poor Taylor, I felt bad. I will always love him though.

What happened? What did I miss? Did they have Blake and Jordin onstage together and have a drum roll moment of announcing the winner?

OH YEAH!!!! I love "American Idol" but we see it late, for example, last week we saw the "idol gives back" special today is the elimination nigth.

The next month we will have our own "Latin American Idol"

Blah blah blah cheering, hugging, crying, blah blah blah, she gets the mike.

Thanks.

Crazy to follow an entire season and miss that moment, even if it was dumb and anticlimactic.

I figured Jordin would win because I voted for Blake a bunch of times and never once got a busy signal. He'll go on to have a nice career, probably bigger than Jordin's.

Jordin has a great voice, but I just don't find anything exciting about her. I can't say much about her charisma or her personality, because I don't feel I saw much of either. She's young though, maybe she will improve as she becomes more experienced. She's definitely got the voice.

AI Recaps-May 23rd
The Finale!-Finally....

It’s here, it’s actually here. After a rather uninspiring season that seemed to lack the diversity of past seasons, we are left with two contenders. It’s the plaid pants wearing beatboxer vs. the singing pretty princess.

However, this season wasn’t without some “highlights.” We got Sanjaya who was more notable for his revolving door of hairstyles than his voice. We got Haley who was all legs, and not much else. And we got a singing Cabbage Patch Doll named Chris Sligh who mistook snottiness for wit. We also got cheesy pimpmercials and even cheesier group sings. We got several guest coaches who proved to be way past their expiration dates. We also learned AI has a heart and some of us opened our wallets on “Idol Gives Back” night. But most important to me was the sweet miracle known as Melinda “Coming in Third is the New First” Doolittle. I hope this girl goes far.

But we have a finale to get to....

Ryan is dressed as if he’s going to a funeral, and he introduces us to other fashion disasters like Randy, who is dressed like a bull-fighting pimp, and Paula, who puts the “girls” on display. And I think Simon is wearing the same outfit he did the night before.

First, Jordin and Blake sing “I Saw Her Standing There.” Blake is dressed like a Vegas lounge lizard, and is Jordin wearing her Badgley Mischka over a pair of Levi’s? I’m not too crazy about the performance. It was so “High School Musical.” I thought their harmony sounded rough too.

Former guest coach Gwen Stefani visits us "via satellite" to sing her new song, “Four in the Morning.” Well, at least she didn’t yodel. But why was she wearing a diaper that looked like a pastry?

Fortunately, Kelly Clarkson is on board to sing her new single “Never Again.” I absolutely love this song, and I can’t wait for Kelly’s CD to come out next month.

Just like last year, AI decides to give out some Golden Idols. The awards are for Best Presentation, the Most Original Vocal, and the Best Buddies. These segments went far too long, and the less said, the better. Just enjoy your fifteen minutes of fame Margaret, Sholandric, Kenneth and Jonathan. But is there really a bush baby at the Milwaukee County Zoo named Simon? Last year the Golden Idols were fun, but this year they made me cringe.

The Top 6 Guys sing Smokey Robinson and the Miracle’s songs, but things don’t heat up until Smokey Robinson shows up. Oooh, Brandon Rogers looks hot!

Blake gets to sing, I mean beat box with Doug E. Fresh. Okay, this performance was fun. Wait a minute. Doug E. Fresh is still around? Actually this performance was highlight for me, lots of fun.

The Top 6 guys may have put me to sleep, but the Top 6 girls are in good form as they sing Gladys Knight and the Pips songs. Haley is about as soulful as a bowl of strawberry yogurt, but get down with your bad self, Legs. And I’m so glad KiKi and my girl Melinda got to sing with the legendary Gladys Knight. The three of them sounded fabulous.

AI needs more filler for this dog and pony show, and apparently Tony Bennett is over the flu. He sings “For Once in My Life.” Ho hum.

Melinda, a back up singer no more, sings with BeBe and CeCe Winans. Now we have a show. All three of them sounded fabulous! I heard music like this in church while I was growing up, I’d probably still be going to mass.

Okay, I actually thought the pimpmercial full of blooper out takes was kind of cute. I know, I'm really reaching...

I find Carrie Underwood underwhelming, sorry. But her fiddler player is cute.

Oh no! It’s Our Dread Lord Clive Davis here to give us the BMG sales report. Save it for the investors’ meeting Evil C. Clive canonizes the DAUGHTRY! and Carrie Underwood, and disses Taylor, Kelly and Kat...very tacky.

I loved the African Children’s Choir on “Idol Gives Back” night and I loved them on finale night. They are just adorable and I smiled throughout their performance. Can we bring them back next year?

Okay, KiKi doesn’t get to sing with anyone, but Sanjaya gets to perform with Aerosmith’s Joe Perry? Did Joe Perry lose a bet? My cat actually freaked out and raced out of the room when Sanjaya began to sing. I should have done the same.

From the ridiculous we come to the sublime, Green Day, who give justice to the classic John Lennon song, “Working Class Hero.” But somehow it seemed out of place during this schlocky night.

Apparently not too peeved over Clive Davis’ rude remarks, Taylor comes out to sing his new single “Heaven Knows.” He’s fun and soulful, and I thoroughly enjoyed his energetic performance. Watching him makes me miss last season. And was that Ace in the audience? Taylor and Ace? Squee!

Another AI winner from Alabama is on board. Ruben sings “You’re All I Need” with Jordin. Looking like a cute prom date in their matching tie and dress, Ruben and Jordin are rather bland, but serviceable. What is it? I just can’t into this finale.

Bette Midler comes out to sing the AI coronation song “Wind Beneath My Wings.” Oh wait, that was a hit for her about twenty years ago. Did Bette get into Paula’s stash? She was a hot mess!

Kelly Clarkson sings a blistering “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” accompanied by Joe Perry. Taylor, Ruben, and Carrie join them in the Beatles medley. Unfortunately, the top AI6 12 had to join them. Okay, Melinda was okay, snerk. She can do no wrong in my book.

And finally, after two hours of musical guests, Golden Idols, past AI winners, unnecessary filler, and celebrities in the audience, we get to the time we’ve been waiting for-the announcement of this year’s American Idol. After 74 million votes, Jordin Sparks is crowned the winner. Gee, what a surprise.

Okay, I liked Jordin, and I think she’ll be best served by the AI/19E machine. She’s young and malleable. She’s very pretty and marketable. Plus, she has a good voice and will probably grow as a performer. And as much as I liked Blake’s uniqueness and showmanshiip skills, he’s probably better off.

However, it’s Melinda’s CD I will be buying...

Beyond annoyed. I had to TIVO the show becuase I had a thing and well since the show went 12 minutes over I didn't even get to see the end...at all. Sigh. Watched the whole season and although I didn't really care about the winner, it would have been nice to at least SEE it.

LOVED the Doug E. Fresh/Blake song. Hightlight of the night.

Thought Kelly was great.

Green Day was great too although, it seems like somewhat of a dream that they were actually there becuase they didn't seem to fit.

Everything else was meh.

There's no way in hell that show needed to push over two hours. It was ridiculous how rushed it was at the end.

"Here's your mike, Jordin. Sing your song quickly now. We'll play credits over the end while you're singing, and this year we won't get to show all the other contestants hugging you while confetti falls or anything. It was very important to get those Golden Idol awards on the air instead."

I noticed that too! They drug it out so long with so much unnecessary filler and then cut the supposed climax off like they were running out of time! I'd rather have heard less of the other stuff and more at the end!

You know Bette Midler may not have sounded very good, but for a woman who is old enough to collect social security, she looked gorgeous! I couldn't believe it when I saw her I thought it must have been her daughter instead. She was never a very attractive lady IMO but now her body and her face and hair are looking better than ever. Whatever she's done to herself it worked. Maybe a trip to Madonna's makeover artist?

Her outfit was young and fun too. You got to give her credit for that if not her singing!

I think of this season, if I were to buy an album.. it would be Blake's. But I've yet to pick up an Idols cd yet.
