    Well its over, and not a minute too soon. What proved to be the most lackluster season of American Idol finally had its swan song last nite, with a finale show which proved equally as Boring and irrelevant, pulling out all the stops with a gaggle of hasbeen performers, corny/cheesy performances, and a predictable Farewell to Simon.

    But then, the Fierce appearances of Janet Jackson and Paula Abdul brought some needed life to the already DOA and flatlined show. Janet Awesome and Paula Crazy made me sit up and take notice. So producers, you did 2 things right.

    Oh yeah, and then there was the winner, Lee.... My choice of the 2 finalists, but still didnt blow me away.....(he's no Adam Lambert)...

    Cant wait for the new season of Jersey Shore. Now THATS entertainment. ! You go Snookie......:cool:

    I thought there was a lot of great entertainment, I thought Crystal and Arron sounded beautiful together, they should have sang the song without the bg's. Crystal and Alanis was ok. Brett Michaels wasn't 100 percent there yet but I was glad to see him on stage there( I wouldn't be surprised if he did it for free). Christine Aguilera sounded great but that song didn't sem very well produced in my opinion. One thing the show lacked was punch. It could have used some Adam Lambert production or Lady Gaga, something that was amazing at least. Stupid Ryan kept talking in his mic after Kris started singing. The audio mixing was poor just like last years show. Why the show goes in small studio all year long and then all the sudden these people are suppose to perform in large places like that is just crazy. To much focus on Simons leaving. And I didn't find Dane Cook very funny. I did like the other funny guy and his comment about Simons shirt couldn't be tighter unless he had Randy in there with him.

    Got to be kidding, Paula sounded and acted as loopy as ever, and when was Janet ever relevant(1983?) She drug out that old worn out song and looked like she was hiding Lady GaGa in her pants!
    And where was Adam LamberT? Just like Crystal, he was the real winner and proof that people that vote may not be the same ppl that buy the music(?)
    I'm jus sayin

    After last season I predicted this show would never be the same (the Adam Lambert effect) and now without Simon it's all over. Janet was hot and her ass was phat. Good to see Paula there for old times sake. Almost got genuinely sad when Simon gave his farewell.

    i've gotten the winner wrong for about 3 seasons now... i'm starting to think American Idol is watched by little girls and they vote the most on it....

    Simon's probably frustrated by this as well...

    Can't believe Lee won. He's even more dull than that Kris guy who won last year. Totally lacking charisma or a distinct voice. Ugh. Crystal was miles better on the night.

    Paula is great in small doses. Janet looked better than Ive seen for a long time. Although I'm pretty certain she was miming.

    The show didn't seem to be much about the finalists. More about Simon. And is Beautiful day the winners song? How odd choosing a U2 song. And lazy.

    Overall quite entertaining but glad this weak series is done.

    But not so good with the actual Beegees. I wanted them to gtfo. I feel sorry for musical legends having to lower themselves to duetting with nonentities.

    Oh and I liked Aguilera's new song. And Janet definitely mimed.

    The only thing I liked about that show was tiny little Christina Aguilera's fat, sturdy ass and lovely face. Otherwise, the show was nothing but a vehicle for sponsor commercials.

    might have to revamp the voting... maybe split some votes to the judges...
