    OK, I watched most of it. Usually, as corny as these finales are, there are one or two performances that stand out. Not so much this time. Jessica was great with Jennifer Holiday, but Jennifer freaked me out a little. I've never seen her perform before. Does she have some sort of medical condition? If so, I won't make fun of her. I still think Jessica is great, but I had already come to terms with her finishing second, as I think she had as well.

    Speaking of making fun of people, my first thought when I saw Fantasia was "Godzilla!" Her body shape combined with that reptilian bodysuit...and her performance was a hot mess.

    Aerosmith rocked the house.

    I would buy stock in Jordin Sparks if that were possible. She's very talented, very beautiful and still very young, even though it seems like she won Idol 10 years ago.

    I'm happy for Phil. I was kinda hoping he'd do the full version of "Thriller" that he played during his audition, but maybe that will be on his album.

    It's either sad or telling that I can.... and wanted each one to win that year, except last year because I don't like country.
    David Cook, Kris Allen, Lee DeWyze, Scotty McCreery, P2!
    I probably butchered Lee and Scotty's last name because I didn't look them up.

    Anyhow, I fell asleep at 7:30 last night so I missed it all but I had to get on here and see who won and thoughts on it before work!

    I remember Scotty because he does country and has huge ears, plus it was recent. And David Cook because his hometown of Blue Springs just outside of Kansas City has a "Home of American Idol David Cook" sign on I-70.

    I dont know any of their albums or songs at all.

    David Cook had a few songs that I liked on his first album. His main songs that I know were "Leave the Light On" and "Come Back To Me". His second album I haven't heard much about and haven't listened to so I can't say much about that.

    Kris Allen continues to release good music and has a new album out now. He's smaller scale but still doing well, I think. He remade a few on his first album like "Heartless" that he performed on Idol. His "Live Like We're Dying" was a pretty big hit I think. Also "I Need To Know" was released on that same album. His new song is called "Vision of Love" and is pretty good but I haven't heard it but a couple times. I follow Kris on Twitter too.

    Lee go dropped by his label I think as I don't know a single song he's released. I don't know about Scotty post Idol either.

    (yes, I'm at work bored already waiting on the cafeteria to open so I can get breakfast hee)

    Wikipedia confirms he was dropped in October 2011.

    ETA - Equally bored, I Guess. Although I don't have a cafetaria that will open :)

    Well at least I'm in good company because I knew them all as well. DC is still by far my favorite. Looking forward to what P2 comes out with though.

    I LOVE Jennifer Holiday!!!
    I think I just enjoy OTT performances.

    If you noticed, Jessica started out that duet singing as Jessica Sanchez but over the course of the song she began to mimic Jennifer.
    By the end of the song Jessica had morphed into mini Jennifer- she couldn't help herself.
    It was a bit bizarre to watch.

    From what I have read Phillip is going into surgery as soon as the immediate news cycle is over.
    I don't think what he is having done is as simple as a lithotripsy because these is some question about him missing the first couple of tour dates and that doesn't start until early July.

    I don't think Aerosmith was lip syncing.
    Definitely Rhianna and JLo (can't remember everyone else) but I think Steven sounded very rough and there's no way that wasn't live.

    Loved Aerosmith... wish they had played more songs.


    We also laughed because of Jennifer Holliday... her facial expressions were great.

    Joshua sounded good as he usually does, but Fantasia sounded awful. I didn't understand how she won her season with her nasally voice, and last night her screeching made me say "I can't believe it's possible, but she singes worse now than when she won". Maybe the horrible outfit was to distract people from her horrible singing.

    Maybe because he was more entertaining than Jessica.

    All Joshua does is scream. When he tries to sing with emotion he falters badly.

    Hyperbole like this is why the "____ only screams" meme is not taken seriously.

    He is not to your taste. You find him overwrought. You dislike the style.
    But screaming is not all he does :rolleyes:

    I say they need to put 24 WGWG's in the Top 24 next year.

    Maybe they should give all the WGWGs a handicap of some sort. Like in golf; I don't mean they have to sing in wheelchairs. :p

    No handicap needed - just serious competition!

    You know, I was actually keeping my eye out for this after your comment a couple of weeks ago about Jessica being a very gifted mimic-- and YOU'RE RIGHT!! She totally started aping Jennifer's vocalizations. Not that it wasn't fantastic, because it still was. That was one of the singularly most entertaining things I've seen on Idol in a while.

    On a related note, I cannot BELIEVE that people are making fun of Jennifer Holliday's weird faces after an entire season of Phil Philips's "I just ate a rancid piece of meat" and "I just stepped on an electrified skunk" faces and body contortions. :D
