I am still dumb founded…I would have bet (thank goodness I didn't) that Adam was going to win American Idol. Looking back, I guess we should have seen it coming when Kris beat Danny, but still I did not see it coming. I am happy for both of them…and didn't I say yesterday Kris should do Keith Urban-ish music and who did he sing with? ha!
Jeff was like "who is Adam gonna sing with?" and I guessed Aerosmith. When he started singing one of my favorite Kiss songs, I started to scream, when they showed Kiss coming down onto the stage and they were full make-up, I screamed louder. Adam fit right in with his Mad Max beyond Thunderdome outfit and big ol' boots. This was the best finale ever. I could have done without Fergie and the Black Eyed Peas, but I forgive them cause of Kiss, and Queen. Oh and Kara, I still don't like, but I screamed and laughed so loud when she started singing over and BETTER then the do-dobird bikini girl with the new boobs (and I thought one was gonna fall out), and then when she opened her dress and showed her bikini, that made me laugh too. I still hope she is not on the show next year, but that was funny, and a great way to end her American Idol judge career.
I did not care for Alison and Cyndi Lauper's duet, that sounded horrible. I could not figure out if Rod Stewart was drunk or what, but Jeff said close your eyes and don't watch him and he sounded just like the old Rod Stewart, or should I say young Rod Stewart, and he did…I love that song.
So, I apologize I don't have any card to show ya, I will tomorrow, I was gone most of the day, I had a great lunch with my long time friend Teri, (waving hi) it was her birthday lunch, and we wandered around Micheals. So I did get a few things stamped and colored but nothing completed, and I wanted to watch American Idol with Jeff instead of alone in my studio, so I hope you understand.
Have a great Thursday, and thanks for stopping in!
Oh I am so with you on many of these things…I squealed when KISS came out..Amazing!!! Chris and Keith rocked it..perfect pairings. I actually thought all the pairings were amazing. I like Cyndi too!
Yes, cracked up when Kara came out..and the look on Ditzie's bikini girl's face was PRICELESS! She looked so pissed off that Kara was stealing her limelight! LOL
Funny..my hubby also said about Rod being drunk..lol.
I had a blast watching both DWTS and AI..had everything taped and didn't even turn on the computer for fear someone would have something posted LOL!
Can't believe Adam did not win…even Chris was shocked…but they will all be winners in the end. Adam has an amazing career ahead of him…
Now I guess I'll start watching So You Think You Can Dance Canada..it was awesome last year!! Starts soon!
Di, I loved both Kris and Adam, but am really happy that Kris won. He seemed like "the little engine that could" to me. I think I would much rather listen to a cd by Kris, and go to see Adam on stage in a musical. :^)
Yes, this old lady cried when Kris was hugging his wife. It was too sweet, and made me wish I was young again. ;^)
OMG! I to am in shock and agree that "WE" should of seen it coming. Poor Chris looked so shocked..he's a good guy. They both are. But I SO thought it was going to be Adam and Danny….OH and KISS!! My DH thought I was NUTS too! I was dying!!! That's OK they rocked it and Adam so FIT in!
Had to laugh your comment about Rod…and yes an amazing song still. Ok, got to get some sleep just had to comment real quick. LOVE your blog too! So inspirational!
I have not watched the show at all this year – except when you were home, but I was surfing and I just happened to hear Ryan say that the Kris fella was gonna sing with Keith Urban – well I would walk over broken glass to see/listen/touch Keith Urban so I stopped on the station – he did a good job. They sounded great together. I am really liking the fact that they are letting the contestants play instruments if they know how. I don't think they were allowed to on the first season. I remember they did it on Canadian Idol and it was awesome because they were down to the last 12 or something like that and they could all play an instrument and they did one of Gordon Lightfoot's songs. It was just amazing – gave me goosebumps – now I wish I had of watched the finale – KISS – rock on sister – I love those dudes – BETH – best song ever recorded!!!! I am still trying to find that movie KISS Meets the Phantom of the Park – do you remember that movie!!!! I guess I will have to YouTube the finale performances.
I was a little hooked on Criminal Minds last night – holy crappers – what a finale.

I think it was a marketing thing ,they know they will make huge bucks with Adam even without the title so they gave it to kris to make some money off of him.I think Adam is going to be a huge star anyway and you could see he was genuinely pleased for kris.They both seem like really "nice "people even Simon mentioned that.
And my hubby said exactly the same thing about Rod Stewart!!
Hey sunshine! This is actually my second trip to your blog today. I logged on as soon as I arrived at work to see what you had to say about AI and now I'm back to comment.
I am shocked that Kris won but not totally shocked. I had read somewhere that Danny's fans were being wooed over to Kris, so I thought there was a good possiblity of an upset.
I about peed when Kris came out with Keith Urban and if I had had your phone number I would have called you. You SO nailed that one. They did a great job and I hope Kris continues to do some country.
Rod Stewart–I commented that he looked like his legs weren't attached to his body. He looked like a marrionette, like someone was pulling the strings or had their hand up his back making his mouth move but they forgot about his legs. I had to close my eyes too. I LOVE Rod Stewart but just couldn't watch him.
Lil Rounds and Queen Latifah—someone should have told the Queen that wearing a body sock was NOT the most flattering thing for her. When she started dancing it looked like two pigs wrestling in a gunney sack. Just sad, I tell ya!
Adam—-so many things to say. I love his relationship with Allison. Did you notice that whenever they were on stage at the same time, they were always together? I heard him say that she is like a little sister and I can totally see that. I hope they do a duet together because I loved the one they performed on the show. KISS—I was screaming and doing the head bob/fist shake. What a perfect match up and I have said from halfway through that Adam is a reincarnation of Freddy Mercury so the Queen was just perfect.
I can't believe it's all over—now what to do we chat about every week?
As soon as I saw Keith Urban with Kris … I yelled to my dh "Diana said they should sing together!!!!" He looked @ me like I was a looney bird!! hehehe.
You called it, girl!!
I LOVE that Kris won … He's been my favorite all along!

I am a day behind commenting…but I just have to say …. I have been following your blog for a few weeks now and of all of the blogs that I read, yours is definitley my fave!!!! I look forward to reading it, and I so do not like to read!
You are right on with the idol thing! Me and my hubby were in the bed room yelling with Kiss so loud that my daughter thought something was wrong with us and ran into my room to help!
Anyway, thanks for such a great read! I have to get caught up now 🙂

Di, I just read that Kris said that even though he sang with Keith Urban, people shouldn't think that he is "going country"
Sad that Adam didn't win, but he will be a big star anyway!
