Geez, no wonder my sister couldn't get through last night. 137 times? 120 times?

Wow.

Anywho, so, that's that. Ruben's our new American idol.

I'm very happy for him. Yay, Ruben! .

I felt so bad for Clay, though...he always tried his hardest during his performances, and he's such a nice guy (I was really, really impressed with how he took his losing to Ruben. The way he handled himself tonight...that just increased my respect for him). And last night and tonight in particular...man, Clay just blew me away. He did a superb job on all his performances tonight and last night...some of the very best performances from him I've ever seen. Last night was one of very few times I disagreed with Simon-I don't know what he was on last night, Clay kicked butt, in my opinion.

But both of them will be just fine. I'm happy both of them made it as far as they did.

By the way, that little bit with Simon and Paula...geez, I cracked up during that. That was very...odd.

So, yeah, congrats to Ruben.

And to Clay, as well.

It's been fun.

Angela

What Moonlit Angel said!

I think they'll both be very successful, and I can't wait to see them "battle it out on the charts."

I had the same thought about the G rating after the Paula and Simon thing. During it, I was like... It made me squirm, so I can't imagine what parents watching with their kids felt about it.

I missed it due to a work event but I'm sad Clay didn't win. I honestly don't think Ruben is very good but he's a sweet guy and on some level I'm glad he won. Clay will go on to do good stuff. Get that guy on Broadway and SOON!

Last night I got home really late, but I finally caught up on Tues and Wed's tapes. I am very happy for Ruben and despite my slight preference for Clay, with a difference of 1,300 votes in 24 MILLION that's pretty good! They will both do really well. Canadian Idol will be coming on soon (yes, it's true!) I wonder who the judges will be.

Anyway, this all got me wondering, if Bono were just some guy who decided today to audition for the show, how do you think he'd do (picture early Bono of course)? Just with his voice, not his songs and with the rest of U2?

I don't think Bono has or ever had an "American Idol" type voice (read "pop ballad singer"). He's not what they're looking for.

is it me or did Kelly Clarkson sound awful last night? she was not hitting the notes and seemed to be singing faster than the music.

i think her inexperience and nerves got the best of her.

i must say the outtakes of the pop star auditions from around the world made me laugh.

I agree about Kelly Clarkson. But I do kinda think the independent song is ok

I would have to disagree. Bono has a lot of feeling in his voice. He comes across well and isn't irritating to listen to like the dude that sings for the white strips.
