AI - The Winner

1. Melinda singing with Bebe and Cece Winans!! THE reason why she should be the winner this season. It was incredible. And I was praising Jesus along with them!

2. Doug E. Fresh and Blake's beat box performance! Favorite part of the entire show.

3. Carrie Underwood's performance. Very moving! She rocks my world! I love her.

4. Sanjaya! NOT really a highlight, but must be mentioned! Sanjaya, if ever you read my blog, I don't know why you would randomly stumble upon it, but if you do, please know that AI does not think you are good. They are making a joke out of you, just like they did with William Hung. Sure he's got lots of money now and is famous, but is it worth it? Please stop, stop now.

5. Clive Davis' praise for Chris Doughtry. He was my favorite last season! I just wish we would have had a performance from him.

6. Kelly Clarkson's (my AI favorite) two songs! Two songs! I was so excited when she came out for a second one!

7. Oh, but the BEST part of the night was when the show went OVER the two hour time allotment and I missed the ending!! That was definitely the best part. AI, can you let us know next time when your show scheduler can't read a freakin clock? And then it was so fun when I had to flip through news channels for 15 minutes to try to figure out who won, just be told very nonchalantly from a news reporter that Jordin is our winner. That was so fun! Just how I imagined finding out during my 4 month devotion to this show. But I guess that's what I get for refusing to watch a show while it is actually on.

So Jordin in our American Idol! I'm not surprised, maybe a little disappointed, but not surprised. She is going to be fantastic! Melinda, Blake and Jordin are definitely going to be the ones to have long, fabulous careers!

I agree! They could have very easily cut out Sanjaya, Bette Midler, and say...Green Day and finished in UNDER 2 hours for pete's sake!!!

I have to say that it was good to see Taylor Hicks. I mean I have not heard anything about him since he became the AI. I think Kelly and Carrie are the biggest idols. (I don't really ever hear about Ruben or Fantasia.) Oh, and Chris Daughtry should have been the AI. He is doing so well!! I actually fell asleep last night and had to watch it today. Jordin winning was no surprise. But I did enjoy Melinda AND the African Children's Choir. I started tearing up on that one b/c it made me think of Mwangaza. I love their little voices and dance moves!
