I wish next year they’d NOT put the finales of “Lost” and “American Idol” opposite each other. I’m so tired of recording & switching back & forth.
My take on the AI finale – loved that Jordin won – course I’ve already said my favorite would have been for Melinda to win – but oh, well. Jordin’s rendition of “This Is My Now” was right on the mark – emotional and sung beautifully. Wish Blake could have had a different song to sing. Next year – do a competition where at least 2 songs – maybe 3 could be in the running for the finale – that way the finalists could have a choice to whichever one suits their styles better. This was one of the first years I didn’t vote – only because I knew I’d be happy with whomever won. Loved seeing Chris Daughtry on the Tuesday night show. I also enjoyed seeing shots of the audience to see who was there. Wished they could have had some sort of set up where Chris Sligh could have done something to make Hasselhoff cry – remember when he went to audition? That’s what he said his goal was! Would have been funny! People on the boards wanted to know where Fantasia was – well, she’s on Broadway starring in “The Color Purple” – I doubt she could have been in 2 places at once, but it was sure nice to see the other Idol Winners. Loved Kellie’s new song! So, Dear Readers, what are your thoughts?
