The star-studded American Idol finale did not disappoint – with superstars like Tony Bennett, Tim McGraw, Beyonce, Jack Black, Gladys Knight, Tom Jones, Lady Gaga (who I think is just over the top strange and completely inappropriate – especially for a family show like American Idol), Carrie Underwood (who is what American Idol is about), Bono (straight from his show last night in Utah which I have to say I loved), Mark Anthony with J-Lo dancing, Steven Tyler’s final performance was crazy good – with stars like that – how could the show go wrong?
Well, I could have done without the “best of the worst” clips – and I wish they could teach the contestants to blend their voices when singing as a group instead of trying to out-sing each other (one of the things I like about The Voice). I also could have done without the half dressed man groping the half dressed Lady Gaga – but the rest of the show was great. I was reminded again why I love Casey James – he and James Durbin are so funny and I love their banter!
And now .. to our winner. Time was running down and I got nervous… would they go over again and my DVR miss announcing the winner?
Were you surprised?
Our new American Idol is… Scotty McCreery!
Congratulations Scotty – America Loves you! and Best Wishes to Lauren Alaina.
