Okay, so the streak is broken. Your American Idol is female. Whew…thank goodness. Actually, I have absolutely no idea why that mattered to anyone. Anyway, Candice Glover is the newest American Idol. Quick…can you name the other 11? Yep, some just disappeared into oblivion didn’t they? And still there are others who didn’t win and maybe didn’t even come close, but they have huge careers now.
Speaking of not winning, but having a huge career did you see Candice sing with Jennifer Hudson? Now, that was a moment I’m sure my young readers yawned through, but I loved. As usual, American Idol rolled out a bunch of celebrities to perform. Also as usual some of them were OLD! God bless you Frankie Vallie and Aretha Franklin! Then on the other side of the spectrum, some of them were so current that I have no idea who they were! Yes, I do know who Psy is. I’m fascinated by this guy. Exactly, what is his talent? He’s making a lot of money doing what he did on Idol last night. Huh!
I loved seeing one of my fav’s Adam Lambert make an appearance with Angie. I wasn’t too crazy about the song they sang together though. Why did Angie get to perform with two celebrities? I guess you youngin’s know who that was that Angie sang with?
We also said goodbye to forever judge Randy Jackson. I can’t see how Idol is going to survive without him, unless they manage to bring back Simon. Wouldn’t that be great? I don’t think they have enough money in the world to get him to work that hard again though. Simon is uber rich–did you ever see his Bugatti?
So that brings another season of American Idol along with this blog to a close. Thanks to all Dr. B’s students for hanging out here. I know you do it just for grades–ha, ha! I hope my five “chosen” students enjoy their surprise. Did you get it yet? Enjoy your summer all! If you have a hankering for more reality TV or me, come join me at www.big-brother-blog.com.
