Like I could blog tonight and not mention American Idol. I am so impressed with the season finale. I was completely entertained the ENTIRE two hours. Was it really two hours? It flew by. I loved ALL of the special guests, especially Prince. I almost peed my pants! (seriously, I had to pee but I was holding it, way too lazy to pause the show and go.) I knew it was him right away and I was in denial until the first close up. It was awesome! I loved Mary J. Blige, but I was very much hoping it would be Bono. I told Brian "if Bono shows up I swear I'll have a stroke!" Then the "curtain" opened and I threw my hands against my face...it was Mary, I was a little disappointed, but that's okay, Mary J. was at the Oprah show when I was there in February, I enjoyed her performance. The Clay Aiken moment with that CREEP CREEPY CREEPY guy singing was so stinkin' hilarious. I had to replay his reaction, but forward through his creepiness. And my hat is off to Chris for not only sounding amazing but looking amazing. You are the wind beneath my wings. In the end, when Katharine and Taylor were singing "I had the time of my life," I couldn't help but picture Chris singing and dancing merrily to that and I have to say I was a little grateful for his early dismissal, seeing him sing the melody would have been wrong, a sin.
Produce that album Chris, I'll be sure to buy it...or at least copy it from the library.
