I cannot put into words how happy I am that there aren’t any more episodes of American Idol that I’ll have to sit through in agony simply to hate on everything about the show. Simon Cowell is done (he’ll appear tomorrow, for the last time on the show), and the show may follow in his British footsteps. I don’t really see Idol lasting very long without him. That’s a discussion for another day, though.
Let’s get into the tweets about the finale. Crystal took on Lee it a lackluster night, but I’ll explain it 140 characters at a time.
I’m gonna watch Idol now. Pray for me!
Crystal dropped her mic during her entrance. Sign?
Lee starts. I hate that we’re going to have to deal w this guy for the next 3 yrs. Hopefully he’ll flop like so many Idols b4 him.
Lee’s 1st song was boooooooring. Not any better than the 1st time he did it.
Crystal doing Joplin again. If Crystal could manage an ounce of originality she will be HUGE.
I’ve done some karaoke in my time, and I’ve heard drunk chicks in dive bars do better at “Bobby McGee” than Crystal just did.
Lee has “Everybody Hurts” picked for him. He does nothing w it. Grasp the opportunity, Lee! So far ur just pissing in the wind.
Crystal gets “Black Velvet,” which is better than if they had chosen another Joplin song, at least.
Crystal’s 2nd performance wasn’t bad, per sé, but it was pretty ‘meh’ imo.
I keep hearing a pop from @RyanSeacrest’s mic. Audio guy, get your shit together. Ryan, chill the eff out.
Yikes, who picked this for Lee? He should never try to cover U2 again. 1 of his worst performances of the season, and that says a lot.
Lee just seems so disconnected tonight, and especially in that 3rd performance. I understand nerves, but bro this is bigger than that.
Haha, Ellen said she could see Lee was ‘present’ when he CLEARLY was not. Ellen is a terrible judge and adds nothing to this show.
Crystal’s single will be “Up To the Mountain.” Not mind blowing, but FAR better than Lee.
Crystal should win this by a landslide, but America is stupid so Lee will prob walk away the winner tmrw.
“I can not compare you to a contemporary artist.” Except for EVERY female singer/songwriter today. Think Hotel Cafe, Ellen. Come on!
“That was outstanding.” Simon’s final words on Idol.
There you have it. The final Idol twitter blog for the season. Who do you think should/will win?
