Thanks Harriett…it’s nice to know someone misses me.

I think they were so busy chatting up there that they missed the crotch shot of Siobhan! LOL!

Hey, D! I don’t think I can do the live thing tonight. I need to watch more carefully. I am going back and telling them. Be right back.

Hey Rodney..don’t jump the gun like you did last year with the winner! Don’t want to be embarrassed two years in a row. lol.

I wish they would repeat the show on demand or later in the day or something..maybe i should switch to direct tv…

Wow…kris has a really hot guitarist in his band!

Harriett

May 26th, 2010
8:15 pm

I am back. I think Kris’ song sounds pretty good.

Harriett

Siobhan’s voice is better than ever.

Deirdre

May 26th, 2010
8:22 pm

Really liked Siobhan and Aaron! The BeeGees…not so much

Deirdre

8:23 pm

I finally had to turn coveritlive off. I heard that frickin clicking sound through the entire song. Do they even watch the show on that thing?

Harriett

May 26th, 2010

Me, too. Barry Gibb looks really bloated. Speaking of bloated, there was Hasselhoff, sitting in the audience. I read two days ago that his poor daughter had to physically take him to the hospital for drinking again.

OY! They dug the Bee Gees up for DWTS last season….I see they are looking and sounding as decrepit as they did then.

Harriett

May 26th, 2010
8:25 pm

I did not hear it, D. I want to take it all in tonight.

Deirdre

May 26th, 2010
8:25 pm

I used to love the BeeGees but, enough is enough.

Harriett

May 26th, 2010
8:26 pm

Oh, there is Mike!

Deirdre

May 26th, 2010
8:26 pm

This is Taylor’s song!

Deirdre

May 26th, 2010
8:28 pm

Mike S!!!!!! It’s McDonald. I guess it’s his song more than Taylor’s. ;-)

Harriett

May 26th, 2010
8:29 pm

Ok. I can do without this.

Harriett

May 26th, 2010
8:30 pm

I wondered why they did not pair Taylor with McDonald.

Deirdre

May 26th, 2010
8:31 pm

Well…that didn’t work!

BeeGees been rde had and put up wet. . . . Siobhan and Aaron in good form.
Those girl outfits remind me of the Mary Katherine character on SNL who always put her hands under her armpits and took a big fall, arse over elbow. . . Can’t remember the cast mbrs name but she was kool

Deirdre

When will Idol learn not to put the obnoxious auditioners on the stage? The funny ones, yes! The obnoxious ones, NO!

Harriett

May 26th, 2010
8:33 pm

I know they need to have a little humor mixed in tonight, but that was just not funny.

decatur mom

I am underwhelmed by Christina Aguilera.

Deirdre

May 26th, 2010
8:42 pm

See…I don’t get this. I like when the guest stars sing with the Idols but why does she (Christina) get a song all by herself? Aren’t we here for the Idols?

Deirdre

May 26th, 2010
8:44 pm

I get former Idols coming back to sing. I get non-Idol stars doing duets with Idols. I don’t get why they get to show off on a tv show that isn’t about them!

Harriett

May 26th, 2010
8:45 pm

Yes, I was wondering why she got so much time by herself. Also, I do hope the entire night of farewells are not of the “roast” variety. I’d love to see some heartfelt stuff mixed in. I know they don’t want it to be maudlin, but come on, let’s not do a comedy sendoff entirely.

Rosita

May 26th, 2010
8:46 pm

I meant “rode hard” and put up wet, the BeeGees. . .
Simon didn’t seem that convulsed by Ricky G’s jokes about his money!

JD

May 26th, 2010
8:46 pm

Are we pretty much resigned that Lee wins???

Deirdre

May 26th, 2010
8:47 pm

I think they’ll get maudlin toward the end, Or maybe not. But I agree.

Lar

May 26th, 2010

I as just saying the same thing to my wife!

Deirdre

May 26th, 2010
8:47 pm

Wow…is that Lee singing on key?

Harriett

May 26th, 2010
8:51 pm

He was actually doing a good job!

decatur mom

May 26th, 2010
8:51 pm

yikes…I thought the guys sounded terrible as a group.
My eleven year old just saw Hall and Oates and said “who are those old guys??”

JTesla

8:52 pm

Breaking tradition and finding out early who the top dog is. Don’t mind me. Sounds like a great night so far.

Are they also doing a send off for Ricky Minor, or has he been pushed out already?

Deirdre

May 26th, 2010
8:52 pm

Janelle looks good!

JD

May 26th, 2010
8:53 pm

Is Crystal’s mom still around? Does anyone know.?

Deirdre

May 26th, 2010
8:54 pm

We’ve got a ways to go yet, JT

Rosita

May 26th, 2010
8:54 pm

OMG, they’ve Siobhanned Crystal!!!!!!!!!!!

Deirdre

May 26th, 2010
8:55 pm

Whoever blocked this show is an idiot!

decatur mom

May 26th, 2010
8:55 pm

OK, is it just me, or does Crystal put Alanis Morrisette to shame in the vocal department??

JTesla

May 26th, 2010
8:56 pm

Oh yeah, I’ll be back in a little over an hour, but had to swing by to see how the talent or lack of talent was.

hmm

May 26th, 2010
8:56 pm

Hmm Christina was not wearing her wedding ring….cancelled her tour…trouble in paradise?

Deirdre

May 26th, 2010
8:57 pm

Nice of ya to drop by, JT. See you later!

JD

May 26th, 2010
8:57 pm

No, she had great vocals on that. Too bad they had to change the words.

Deirdre

May 26th, 2010
8:59 pm

The movement during the song was distracting and unnecessary. What was the director thinking?

Harriett

May 26th, 2010
9:02 pm

That I agree with, D. Too much pacing around.

Deirdre

May 26th, 2010
9:08 pm

Casey and Brett Michaels…pretty cool! I still like Casey better than Lee as a singer….I wish he’d had more of a personality on stage.

JD

May 26th, 2010
9:10 pm

Great to see Brett Michaels on stage!

Harriett

May 26th, 2010
9:11 pm

Yes, personality was Casey’s main problem. He did not seem to get it. He has a guitar player’s mentality, and it hurt his performance/singing.

JD

May 26th, 2010
9:15 pm

Poor Lee, off key to start on the stage with Chicago.

Harriett

May 26th, 2010
9:16 pm

In way over his head.

Deirdre

May 26th, 2010
9:17 pm

Wow…Lee sings better than most of the guys in Chicago……oops…I take that back!

Harriett

May 26th, 2010
9:18 pm

I think he stunk it up. He cannot hold a note to save his life.

decatur mom

May 26th, 2010
9:18 pm

LOL, Deirdre. My thoughts exactly!

Deirdre

May 26th, 2010
9:23 pm

LOL!!!!! Pants on the Ground!!!!

Harriett

May 26th, 2010
9:23 pm

The General did himself proud. He can move for an old guy!

decatur mom

May 26th, 2010
9:24 pm

Look at the General cut a rug!! this is the high point of the night so far.

Rosita

May 26th, 2010
9:25 pm

Now we know: William Hung AIN’T!!

I’m lovin AI tonight!

Deirdre

May 26th, 2010
9:27 pm

LOL!!! Rosita!

Is it possible Paula has gotten dumber?

May 26th, 2010
9:33 pm

My god, I thought she was gone for good. And notice no one is laughing at her lame attempts at humor.

Paula's a media monger

May 26th, 2010
9:39 pm

She’s making sure she’s in every shot with Simon.

Deirdre

May 26th, 2010
9:40 pm

OK…I’m crying just a little bit.

Harriett

May 26th, 2010
9:41 pm

OMG, I started crying the minute Paula walked out on the stage, and I am still teary-eyed.

Deirdre

May 26th, 2010
9:41 pm

It was great to see Paula again and all those former Idols…and all the winners except Cookie! Where was Cookie???

Harriett

May 26th, 2010
9:42 pm

I am crying a LOT.

Harriett

May 26th, 2010
9:42 pm

I don’t know, D. Where WAS he? All of them were not there, were they?

JD

May 26th, 2010
9:43 pm

My wife teared up for Paula too.

Deirdre

May 26th, 2010
9:44 pm

Every one but David Cook. Kelly, Ruben, Fantasia, Carrie, Taylor, Jordin, and Kris.

Rosita

May 26th, 2010
9:44 pm

Was that Kelly, behind Simon? Newly svelte?

JD

May 26th, 2010
9:44 pm

All the winners but Cook were there. He must be on tour?

Joel

May 26th, 2010
9:45 pm

gotta admit, I’m a little teary eyed right now. Seeing Paula on the show again and all those old clips of her, Simon and Randy together reminds me of the good old days when this show was pure magic.

Deirdre

May 26th, 2010
9:45 pm

Janet Jackson appears!

Deirdre

May 26th, 2010
9:46 pm

Kelly was the first one to sing.

Harriett

May 26th, 2010
9:47 pm

I wish they had not changed it up so much. It was simple, but good. Janet Jackson looks pretty good without hair.

JD

May 26th, 2010
9:48 pm

I didn’t recognize Kelly at first until my wife told me who she was.

Deirdre

May 26th, 2010
9:56 pm

Lee, Joe and Crystal. Which one of these three can actually sing?

JD

May 26th, 2010
9:57 pm

What a great job.

G

May 26th, 2010
9:58 pm

After Janet, I forgot what the show was about tonight. Following Janet with Joe Crocker, and Idol contestants? Good example of what NOT to do.

Deirdre

May 26th, 2010
9:58 pm

I have to admit that his has been a fun finale so far. Most of it has been very entertaining. Crystal looked beyond thrilled to be singing with Joe C*cker.

BrY

Wow, move over J-Lo, Janet Jackson is the new Booty queen..

Deirdre

May 26th, 2010
10:00 pm

I think we’re going to find out who wins now.

Harriett

May 26th, 2010
10:00 pm

Pac Man ate my last post about Joe. I forgot to leave out the o. LOL. I said he’d really enjoyed his life–60s and 70s style. It shows.

decatur mom

May 26th, 2010
10:01 pm

Wow!! Loved Crystal and Joe and Lee, though I couldn’t hear Lee very much. That was my favorite song of the evening. I agree that Crystal looked ecstatic to be singing with him.

JD

May 26th, 2010
10:01 pm

Yeah, she got behind the vocals for Joe.

Lar

May 26th, 2010
10:01 pm

I love tonights show, for the most part, I hope the right person wins

JD

May 26th, 2010
10:02 pm

Still remember John Belushi behind Joe on SNL.

Tami

May 26th, 2010
10:03 pm

yeah…well, it’s Lee. The teeny-bopper vote came through strong for sure.

Lar

May 26th, 2010
10:03 pm

America got it wrong again

Deirdre

May 26th, 2010
10:03 pm

Well, I had high hopes that he’d say Crystal but….no!

Harriett

May 26th, 2010
10:04 pm

Not unexpected, but so not the one who should have won.

BrY

May 26th, 2010
10:04 pm

Underdog wins again… Grats Lee
