I have to say this: Yaaaaaay!!!! Carrie Underwood won American Idol!!!! Whooohoooooo!!!!
Ahem. I'll spare you any further whoopin' and hollerin'. I just think Carrie kicks butt (and I can usually be found listening to old-school R&B, not country).
It was a bit of suffering to have to sit through that whole damn 2-hour show to find out the winner though. Urk. The whole Simon-Paula fakey-fake drama thing is beyond stupid.
And what was with Constantine, Nadia, and Jessica singing Walk This Way? Truly painful to watch. And Jessica in a belly shirt?! No. That's just wrong.
I was a bit sad to see some of the unjustly voted off Idols on stage last night, singing such unsuitable songs. I do think the right person won in the end, but if I were queen of the universe, here's who the top 6 would have been:
Okay, okay, other than Carrie, I might be a little off on the order. I wouldn't argue that Bo deserved to be in the top two--he just didn't pick many songs I liked. Interesting to note, I started out wanting Constantine voted off immediately. Couldn't stand his whole screechy rocker thing, but each week, he impressed me more and more. I think Anwar could have grown some too if he'd stayed in the competition longer--he needs to find his niche. Nadia suffered from more than a few poor song choices (but benefited from having the best fashion sense of anyone ever to stand on the AI stage), and Vonzell needed to be a little more unique.
So that's my AI wrap-up. Next time, it's back to our regularly scheduled programming. All me, all the time.
