Hey boys, hey girls, I’m sure you’re still recovering from American Idol fever—just like me! I know it has been such a power-packed week, and I was hooked all the way, especially the American Idol Season 8 Finale, which I think was a great way to end this season.
Since Karen already shared with you the shocking twist of this season (and I also feel the same way, Kris definitely rules!) so I am just going to give you a rundown of what I think is hot (and NOT) about this season’s Finale.
Alright let’s start with all the previous contestants showing up in all white doing a cover of Pink’s “So What?” It felt like I was in Idol heaven, but what a concept! They should have done a Star Trek inspired number instead—but who gets to play Spock? Uhm, Simon?!
Then all the previous contestants did duets with stars. Not all of them were a win though. I liked the Gokster’s number with Lionel Richie, they both sounded really good! Lil Rounds remains the diva as she brought the house down with Queen Latifah, and I also liked that neat little number with Alexis Grace and Anoop Desai cruising along with Jason Mraz—I missed these kids!
Steve Martin was hilarious with his banjo, singing with Megan Joy and Michael Sarver, and was even joking he may win the competition (tough chance)! And the surviving members of Queen rocked the house with Kris and Adam as they sang the epic hit “We Are the Champions”—aren’t they already?
David Cook was there of course, fresh from his sold-out concert in Manila with David Archuleta (I was there), to perform “Permanent”, which is off from his self-titled debut. He was pretty subdued for a change, but I found out his brother recently died of brain cancer. Sigh.
Then the Bikini Girl strikes again! This time around, she takes over the stage with Kara, who actually gives her a run for her, uhm, assets—or maybe NOT?! Did that strip-down act have something to do with the ratings? Because for me it’s not working, sorry.
But the biggest highlight of the season would be to see the look on Kris Allen’s face when he found on he’s actually this season’s winner. I can still hear him say, “You got to be kidding me, this is crazy!” We couldn’t believe it too, we sort of feel that the show has turned into The Adam Lambert Show, but then again, the votes already settled the score. We still can’t believe it, but this is the twist that makes our favorite show go out with a bang.
And so now we are about to go back to our normal lives and wait for the next season, but I hope that you had a buzz trailing me and Karen as we give you the latest American Idol updates just like true die-hard fans can! I hope you also don’t miss out on supporting my upcoming projects, I will do my best to update you! So in the meantime, enjoy the Idol hangover, and I will bump into you guys again soon, real soon! Cheerios!
