Finale!

May 22, 2008

This year’s finale was great!!

I loved all the arrangements, and guests this year. And the excitement level was a lot higher than last year because the competition is so close.

So, this season has certainly had it’s ups and downs. The ups being that the David’s were the top two. The down’s being that Carly and Michael left when they did. I think that this season was one of the best for a number of reasons. The number one reason would be the variety of different talent that was on the show. Each contestant (whether I loved or hated them) brought their own personal style and talent, and did a great job for the most part.

I decided¬† to start writing this before the show ended, so I could express my feelings about who won firsthand and……I AM SO EXCITED THAT DAVID COOK WON!!!

I didn’t expect it, and I can’t tell you how happy I am that he won. I think that America has made the right choice for once this season. Thanks for reading!

My dreams came true…

May 14, 2008

Sorry for my brief hiatus. As some of you may know, moving home for the summer from college can be a little crazy.

What I missed…Brooke and Jason’s departures definitely pleased me. I can’t believe that I even liked Jason at first. By the end of it all, he was probably my least favorite. I’m glad he is gone, although he was a sweet kid. I was also extremely¬†happy that America sent Brooke home also. She deserved to leave.

I don’t even think I have to make a prediction as to who goes home tonight. If Syesha stays after last night, I’ll be surprised. Even if she performed the best, I still could never see her in the top two. I think she knows that, too.

Ok, so last night was one of my favorite nights of the whole season. My only wish was that Michael had been in the top three where I thought he would be at this point. Syesha was disappointing, and the producer’s song choice was really odd. I just didn’t enjoy her performances at all. However, her hair looked great.

David Cook was amazing as always, although his performances last night were not my favorite of the season. The arrangement of “I Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing” was really neat. I still hold firm that he’s the one to win.

But some small part of me thinks that David Archuleta will win because everybody loves him. And how could you not? He is cute AND he has a great voice. America loves him, and I do too. But…I still want David Cook to win this year. I feel like he can have more of a career than little David.

So, I guess we’ll find out tonight. Keep your fingers crossed that Syesha goes home, but I don’t really think that will be necessary.
