American idol Thoughts...

So...has American Idol gone country??? That's what it seems anyway since it's now down to the final two and both are country singers ~ it's now Lauren Alaina vs. Scotty McCreery...ya'll

After months of waiting for the finale, American Idol fans are probably ready for it. If I'm not mistaken, this season probably had more upsets than any other season as far as contestant elimination is concerned. Let's see...

First, one of the early favorites of the judges [and the fans as well], Casey Abrams was eliminated very early in the season. His 'shocking' elimination prompted the judges to use the one and only 'Save Vote'...even if there are a lot more other contestants who probably deserve the 'save vote' later in the season...but it was used to save Casey. Was it worth it? Depends on who you ask of course because a little bit later on, the number one favorite Pia Toscano was eliminated. Thejudges couldn't do anything anymore even if she's probably their most favorite so she was sent packing amidst tears & drama.

After the hype of Pia's elimination, the show went on without much drama...until James Durbin got eliminated last week. You see, one of the judges already 'crowned' him as this year's Idol...with his comments of course so many thought he'd at least make it to the final 2 [or 3 maybe]. In fairness, he is really good. He can sing rock, ballad, and other genres without appearing like he's trying hard ~ TH 'ya know ~. But the fans had voted and he was voted off...prematurely according to others anyway.

So then there were 3...a country gal, a rocker gal, and a country lad. They belted out their best last Wednesday. I didn't watch...I listened for a bit. Why? Because it airs at the same time as my ultimate favorite...NCIS...and nothing gets between me and Gibbs! Ha! But I caught some of it since the show was half an hour longer than my NCIS. According to 2 judges...Lauren Alaina took the cake for the night while one judge gave it to Haley Reinhart. I guess Scotty McCreery would be going home then, eh? Wrong! There are millions of young girls voting so I personally didn't think he would be going home anyway. Instead...the rocker gal ~ Haley Reinhart ~ was given the pink slip. She took it well I guess since she sang with gusto during her farewell performance...but it also leaves a lot of people thinking...should she have stayed instead of Scotty? I guess we shouldn't ask the young fans of this good looking country crooner, eh?

So...will you be watching the Finale? I'm not sure. My NCIS already had its season finale last Tuesday so I have the time to watch it. So I probably will...depending on my mood, of course.
