The country has voted after 74,000,000 votes and Fox's biggest show has wrapped up this seasons contest to find the next American Idol. So who won? Well I imagine most people know by now since they watched the broadcast, but I'll give you a hint..wait, I already put it in the title of this post.
is this years American Idol, confirming the outcome most people thought seemed most likely. Polls had her winning over Lewis by a pretty hefty margin which makes this one a bit of a snoozer.
So here's my deal, I don't like this show and tonight is the first time I've ever seen it, and I'm sitting here watching Gwen Stefani singing right after Lewis and Sparks did a duet together, and I can't help but be overwhelmed how much talented she is than than they were.
It's not even close, and I wonder if this is how it is every year. Are the contestants really second tier compared to the real stars? Maybe I'm just coming in on this show too late and it really is already past its prime.
Anyway, I didn't think either Lewis or Sparks were all that great during this show. They got showed up by both Stefani and Kelly Clarkson, and as is usual with any award show, it was too long and filled with stuff that nobody really does well: award show crap. The only highlight were the professional performances, at least two of which I'd like to have copies of.
I know everyone has been focusing on the contest, the sideshow circus of Sanjaya, and who the big idol is tonight, but I can't help but remember what an incredible asshole Simon Cowell was on early this year, so much so that it was obvious the network told him to tone it down.
I also think he was probably incensed that after that happened, when a contestant became a bigger freak than he did. Too bad it didn't play out until the end, having Cowell honor his promise to quit had Sanjaya won, would have made for much better drama in the finale than these weird skits featuring early round failures.
Anyway, congratulations to Jordan. Seems like most people got what they wanted as she has taken the "title", with little to no real excitement of question of who would win. That's just tough though, I'm not happy when this show makes me wait to see House
Well, at least Blake rapping was amusing. I hope you all enjoyed this years show.Topics: Television, Feature, American Idol, American Idol Winner, Jordan Sparks
