OMG! OMG! OMG!
Here are my notes on the American Idol finale…please forgive my spelling on people's names…
~Was not sure what was happening with the Idols dressed like school kids, I was trying to think what Hogwart song might be coming up…nice to see it was fellow Arizonian Alice Cooper. I was glad Siobhan wore undies as they had not too good of a crotch shot of her at the end of the song. Yowza!
~Surprised to see Chris Allen singing as the only time I have seen him lately has been during Idol and he is advertising a car.
~I loved seeing the Bee Gees Barry and Robin Gibb (no relation…ha! people always ask us if we are related and we are always saying…we are Gibbs, they are Gibb)
~I was glad Big Micheal did not pick up old Micheal and crush him after their duet.
~Could have done without the comedian singer guy and the other weirdos that came on stage. Even Ellen didn't look too impressed.
~Didnt care for Christina Aguillera – I wish she had of done Genie in a Bottle.
~I loved Ricky Gervais, he is funny and I love his fangs.
~Aaron was holding his mike so weird with his fingers up and that is all I could concentrate on while he sang. Reminded me of in Choir, and when I would sing I would get to raising up my chin, and Mrs. Lingard would motion her hand to tell me to lower my head…ha!
~I loved Crystal and Morisette duet, that was awesome.
~My first tears of the night: Bret Micheals singing with Casey, this guy almost died not long ago, and here he was singing, it was amazing. Jeff and I were trying to guess who was coming to sing when they started songs, we did not do very good tonight. I was thinking Guns and Roses…oops!
~Could have done without Pants on the Ground, but it was funnier then the comedy skit.
~The tribute to Simon was nice, Paula and her pink rose hemmed very short skirt…no comment.
~Second tears of the night: Janet Jackson, she looked and sounded beautiful.
~This finale entertainment had to be the best one so far with last years Adam singing with Kiss a very close second.
~Third tears of the night: LEE WINS! OMG! I am so happy, or heppy! That is what it sounded like he was saying…I love Lee. I'm off to buy his CD tomorrow. Wonder how long I will have to wait in line?
Have an awesome Thursday and thanks so much for stopping in!

I wasn't sure on the school kids thing at first either – and I was thinking maybe Jack Black reprising his role from School of Rock, but was glad to see it was Alice Cooper – he rocks!
The comedian singer guy was stupid – Simon looked like he was trying to figure out what he was talking about.
Ricky Gervais is soooo funny. I love him
OMG Mrs. Lingard – I haven't thought of her in years!
I liked the Crystal and Alanis duet for sure but when Crystal and Lee sang with Joe Cocker – that gave me goose bumps.
I was pleased to see Brett Michael's as well and was glad he was doing what he does…singing and playing guitar…..not being draped all over some fake-boobed blonde bimbo.
Pants on the ground was funny – I cannot believe they even brought that William Hung guy back for the finale!
I could have done without Paula as well – I hate listening to her talk – she pauses like she has shorted out or something
I disagree on the Janet Jackson thing – I thought she looked horrible with those elf-like ears she has going on and all that junk in her trunk and the shaved head – not pretty at all
I liked the way they had a bunch of the idol contestants come back when they were all dressed in black and white – that was good.
I was really undecided who I hoped would win to be honest. They are both good – but just near the end when they were showing stuff about them – Lee made a comment that struck a chord with me….as you know I am not a very religious person, but my favourite passage in the Bible is the one about their being a time for every purpose under heaven, a time to plant a time to reap..etc. etc… and on his first intro to the judges he said that he believed there was a time for everything and it was his time now. That clinched it for me… he had to win. I'm sure Crystal will get a deal anyway and she seemed genuinely happy for him so that is good. At one point there I thought he might throw up! Just before Ryan started talking and he was bent over – I was like – oh wouldn't that be great if he threw up on the American Idol stage!
All in all it was a good show – the Simon stuff was good – I bet he is gonna miss it for sure.

HI Di. You are the first one I thought of when Lee won!! I am happy for him and I will probably buy his CD too. I agree with most of your comments. Paula was a nice surprise but when she started babbling on, I thought, Okay time to get her off the stage. I use to get the Gibb and Gibbs thing too before I got married and then the football world also thought I was related to Joe Gibbs, the Redskins coach, which is a very good possibility since my grandfather looks like him and is from the same area of N.C.! Well sweet dreams girl! Maybe you should be Simon's replacement. Wouldn't that be fun?

Nuff said! 🙂

Loved Debbie's comment about "YOU" taking Simon's place.
Was an AWESOME show hated that I couldn't text you with each and every comment I had to make. Living at least in the same time zone would work better.
I heard last night on some "Gossip TV Show" that Crystal's Boyfriend broke up with her just before the Finally Show!! Didn't like the showbiz lifestyle! Understandable but at the same time why wouldn't someone want to better themself. Huhm?
LAST Day of School!!!!!! You'll get me back!! HA!!
