LOVED the American Idol finale tonight! This is the first year I have been somewhat quiet regarding the competition... I don't think I've blogged about it once. I guess Facebook kind of took over for that. But now that it's over I have a few things to say:
Most Awkward Moment: Bikini girl and her brand new body parts. I want to know who her mother is and why in the world she lets her daughter parade around mostly nude in front of a gazillion people. Teaching your daughter self-respect is a good thing.
Most Surprising (for me): Keith Urban. I HATE country music. From the first twang of the electric slide guitar I feel nauseas and get dizzy. If the radio or CD is not turned off immediately, my ears start ringing and my vision goes blurry. Tonight I discovered the joy of watching country music. It was yummy. (Yes, Red, you win on the whole Keith Urban is babe-a-licious thing!!)
Most Reminiscent: David Cook. Took me back to the excitement of last year. LOVE HIM!! Not sure if I love his blond hair but was touched by the black arm band in honor of his brother who recently passed away.
Most Take-Me-Back: Cyndi Lauper, Rod Stewart, Kiss, Lionel Richie, QUEEN. Thanks for making it relevant to me!!
Most HUH? moment: Norman Gentle. Really. Did you make me laugh in the Top 24? No. Did you make me laugh now? NO! Please don't make me watch him any more!
Most co-ordinated outfit: Randy. His glasses matched his bowtie. Go figure.
Best Big Girl Moment: QUEEN LATIFAH IN A BODY SUIT!!! Oh yeah. She looked goood!
Best Get My Face On TV Moment: The top 13 finalist from Puerto Rico. What was his name again? I don't know, but there he is, cheesy grin on his face and right on the heels of Kris. Dude! Let him have his moment!
Best Moment on TV This Week: "Dim the lights, heeere we go.... after the nationwide vote of nearly 100 million... the winner... of American Idol...2009 .....is... KRIS ALLEN!"
**Editor's Note: Ultimately, I 'm a Danny Gokey fan. That's the album I will buy.
