Hey Gasmii, I just got back from the Idol finale, and it was probably the best finale I’ve attended. I know this season sucked compared to past seasons, but they surely made up for it in the finale (not sure how it looked on TV as I haven’t watched yet, but it was good live).
I was live tweeting from my cell phone that I snuck in if you want to read the play-by-play…if not, let’s just get to the winner…
WARNING: SPOILER ALERT!
The winner is (thanks to the tween universe that ruin every competition): Lee DeWyze.
I know I was rooting for Lee, but the reality of it is that Crystal is the better singer. I know this sounds weird, but I almost feel like Lee had to win. I don’t feel bad for Crystal’s loss…I know she’ll have an amazing career regardless (way bigger than Lee’s). After all, look at all the people that have made it BIG without winning.
Some quick highlights for me:
-Bret Michaels! OMG, he did SOOO great, and sang his ass off. He’s such an inspiration!
-Nigel Lythgoe sat right in front of me, YES, in the audience!
-Of course, Christina, Alanis, and Janet…I could have done without Chicago, and Hall and Oates. Btw, Alanis was so tan, she’d make Snooki jealous…no joke.
-Alice Cooper, just because I’ve had a thing for him since Wayne’s World (don’t ask).
-And last, but certainly NOT least…Simon’s good-bye…Paula, and all the past Idols’ did a great job saying good-bye.
I’m going to miss Simon…Idol will NEVER be the same without him. I can’t wait to follow him to The X-Factor.
Just for sh*ts and giggles, here’s a picture of the after party–and what it looked like:
