Well, tonight was the American Idol Season Finale and a new idol has been crowned…Kris Allen!  While he wasn’t who I wanted to win (I was rooting for Adam Lambert as anyone who reads my blog knows), I’m still happy for the guy.  Both Kris and Allen will go far in their careers.  I must admit that I did LOVE Kris Allen’s duet with Keith Urban (my fave country singer!).  Adam’s duet with KISS was equally awesome…actually, no, it was one of the BEST performances I’ve ever seen on American Idol (and I’ve watched it since the VERY beginning).  It was a fantastic show tonight.  Lil’ Rounds did a duet with Queen Latifah, Allison Iraheta did a duet with Cindy Lauper (AMAZING!!!!!), the whole gang sang along with Jason Mraz (AWESOME!) and Fergie and The Black Eyed Peas, Kara DioGuardi showed us that she’s actually an amazing singer, and even Norman Gentle performed (LOL!).  Fantastic finale, probably one of the best!  Congratulations Kris!

So, what will we have left??  Hopefully there will be some good shows turning up this summer AND of course I’ll be keeping my ear to the wall to learn of all the surprises in store for us during the new seasons of each show (and the new shows for the fall). 

Mwuah!

Last night’s American Idol was by far my favorite episode of this season.  The judge’s song choices for each contestant as well as the contestant’s song choices were so spot on for each performer, I didn’t know who I liked more.

Now, I’ve been saying since the get go that Adam Lamber is by far my fave and I still feel that way.  The guy is definitely the most talented performer they’ve ever had on that show (in my opinion).  And I really want him to win.  However, I’ve always said that Allison Iraheta or Danny Gokey were my second fave.  Well, Allison is unfortunately gone.  😦  And based on last night’s performances, I actually think Kris Allen might be my second fave!  And he was always at the bottome of my list, which blows me away, b/c last night his performances were AMAZING!!!!  First, Kris sang “Apologize” by One Republic.  He did a fantastic job on this song, just a few pitch problems, but otherwise it was awesome.  And then Kris had to come out and sing “Heartless” by Kanye West.  First off, I LOVE the song Heartless.  But Kris came out and sang it solo with just his guitar.  No band, no back up singers.  IT WAS OUT OF THIS WORLD!!!!!!!!  I’ve already downloaded it onto my iPod.  Kris has a lot more talent than I gave him credit for.  What a great performance last night.

So, I’m kind of hoping that we now see Adam and Kris in the final 2 with Adam winning overall.  What do you all think?

Sorry!!!

Sorry for the lack of posts today everyone.  I managed to get a Hottie o’ the Day post published, but I’m just so behind on things since my trip.  I promise to play catch up tomorrow and review last night’s Gossip Girl and tonight’s American Idol and 90210. 

Mwuah!

American Idol ROCKED last night…Literally.  Last night’s theme was rock and the mentor was Slash.  It was awesome.  Plus we got duets from the final 4.

First up was the man of the evening, Adam Lambert.  Not only was this theme made for him, but he slam dunked the performance.  He was absolutely AMAZING!

Then came Allison Iraheta.  This girl is just so great!  She was definitely my second fave last night.  And she got into a tiny war of words with Simon which always adds for great drama.  🙂

Kris Allen and Danny Gokey then performed a duet and then came out and performed individually.  They were really good.  Not as good as Adam and Allison in my opinion, but they were still good.  Finally, Allison and Adam sang a duet to close the show and it was AMAZING!  I was so happy that they put these two together, because they are both rockers!

Great show last night!  Who do you think will get voted off tonight?  My guess…Kris.

Well, I can’t say I’m surprised by the outcome last night.  I really liked Matt Giraud, but I figured last night would be his last night.  I’m VERY surprised that Adam Lambert was in the bottom 2, but a part of me is thinking that his placement in the bottom 2 was set up since he had never been in the bottom before.  I think that maybe they just wanted to shake him up a bit.  I was also surprised that Adam didn’t follow suit from previous seasons’ contestants and sit in the middle of the stage when asked what side he would choose.  Well, while I am sad to see Matt go, I know he’ll make an album and make a name for himself.

My prediction for next week is that Kris Allen will be going home.  What do you think?

OK, I may be alone here, but I HATED the songs from last night’s episode.  I’m so not into that type of music.  That said, there was only ONE performance I actually enjoyed, and that was Adam Lambert’s!  He is just so talented, I’m really hoping he wins!

That’s all I really have to say about last night’s episode sadly.  It just wasn’t my cup of tea.  What did you think?
