…I am more calmed down now, and have appreciated all the emails. Heck you would think that it was me voted off the way I reacted to the show.
I loved the emails that said "Kris Allen who? Taylor Hicks who?" cause that is so true, these guys won and you never hear anything about them. OMG! Someone even called while we were still watching the show, we are on the west coast and see it three hours later then the east coasters, and luckily I didn't answer it and it went to the machine. After I went to bed I remembered someone called and listened to the message and Connie was calling to console me…what a sweetie…but so glad I didn't hear it till later.
After I slept on it, I realized if I stamp my feet like a spoiled brat and pout and say I am not watching it anymore, I won't be any better then Haley with her attitude when the judges tell her for the hundredth time to pick a style and stick with it. So I think I will probably tune in next week as I get ready for our trip so I can vote for the rest of my favorites, Lauren and Scotty need to be the last two, but I won't stress about not being able to see it on the cruise.
So, I will most likely (although Rhonda says I am missing an excellent season of Vampire Diaries) watch it next week.
I do believe that this season was played not right and that things were done and said to make me not know if I will watch next season. They were telling us people were in the bottom three only to find out later that they were not. How does that make us voting even fair to that person?
I now think that I am glad that James did not win because now he can record what he wants with who he wants and he will not have to bow down to what the American Idol people want him to do. He tweeted that he is fine, plus with Youtube I can watch and listen to James sing all day if I want until his CD comes out.
Don't miss Jay Leno tonight as James will be on and then Monday he is on Regis & Kelly.
OK so since I was in shock last night, in fact I just did my post and went to bed, I didn't even watch my other shows. I just wanted to read and get some sleep. I know get a life Di…ha!
So here is my opinion of the show in general:
When they said that Lauren was the first one safe, I was so happy and sure that James and Scotty would be too. I teared up a bit so happy for her.
Enrique Iglesius sang a couple songs and I always wonder when they sing really close to the mike so you can't read their lips if they are lip singing. He did this. Makes deaf people like me have a hard time understanding the lyrics.
Jordin Sparks our Arizona Idol sang and holy moly, she sang I am Woman, and yes-siree, she really has become a woman, she has truly blossomed, and I think she had my eclipse shoes on…ha!
They also showed a Steven Tyler video…so this year has been odd, videos by J-Lo, video by Steven, a book by Steven, makes ya wonder who they were marketing, the Idols or the judges? Just sayin' that's all.
They also showed Lady Gaga singing, and it was taped or live, or whatever, she was not there at any rate, and she sang the song I think that she wiped out and fell off the stool under the piano on, and apparently they must have nailed down the stool cause she still stood up and all that but with no falling. I was almost hoping to see what get up she would be wearing on stage, but this was almost tame. Goldie lock hair, black fishnet stocking, and a black bikini kinda thing. Like my little sister Jax said if she had her figure she'd dress like that too….hmmm…maybe I would too, only to do housecleaning but that is it. Ha!
So then they said Haley was safe and I was almost sick to my stomach. Jeff said he was headed to bed, cause he was sure Scotty was going home. So then after about 100 commercials it came back on and they dropped the bomb shell of James going home. I cried a lot… Lauren and Scotty were upset, and Haley almost had a smirk on her face. So James sang one last song for us, kissed his wife in the crowd and I just know he is going to be a major star. I stuck my head in the bedroom, and told Jeff "James is going home, bleep! bleep! bleepity bleep! American Idol bleeps!". There ya have it, my thoughts in a nutshell and a half.
Thanks for listening to my opinions and I sure am enjoying your comments and your emails.
Big hugs, Di
