It was a blessing in disguise that I was off from work today and I got to enjoy the live feed of 2009 Americal Idol finals night. Honestly, I’m not much of a fan and would only watch the remaining 5 or 3 contestants booting each other one after the other everytime there’s a season.
With the recently concluded AI Finals, it was a blast! I don’t know with you but I enjoyed it since most of the guests who performed were truly icons in their own right. They had Black Eyed Peas, Jason Mraz, Keith Urban, baby! Man, they rock super! Cyndi Lauper doing one of her classics “Time after time” with the flame-haired top 10-finalist Allison Iraheta; Lionel Richie who was great in singing his hit ”Hello” with American Idol top 3 Danny Gokey and it sure brought me back to my wonder years during the eighties. Carlos Santa also graced the show with his strings, the rock bands Queen and Kiss, and no less than Rod Stewart and comedian/actor Steve Martin also had their own intermissions with other Idol contestants.
Although one of the judges, Simon Cowell himself commended that both finalists were winners for what they have reached since the beginning of the contest, and as they were given new Ford each, the big night was for this year’s dark horse/underdog Kris Allen, 23 year old from Conway, Arkansas who set a new record having millions of votes to his name over Adam Lambert, judges’ favorite.
Hands down to America for being innovative with every choice, from President to their Idols.
