American Idol Finale Recap

Wow! It's been a long, exciting week in music, ehh?

And the winner of American Idol is...
(drum roll, please)

Scotty McCreary! Errr, I mean his spitting image doppelganger Phillip Phillips! Congratulations. Did I mention that his parents won the naming your kid a way overly way way way over the top overly redundant name award? He.He...

Phil Phil won with a record breaking 132 million votes. That's a lot of votes, man. Parents everywhere with tween and teen girls can rest a little better at night knowing that any cell phone overages caused by voting repeatedly are soon to go away. And, for any parents out there whose daughters just developed carpal tunnel this week, well, now you know why... Also, you could alternatively tell your daughters to be the first girl to set up a website asking him to next year's prom like Cady Eimer did to Justin Bieber this year. What?! It worked for her. If you missed that deliciousness, search my blog for it and it shall reveal itself.

Phil Phil was also very cute when he was crying and couldn't finish the song at the end, just in case you missed it.

Any who, the American Idol Finale was up to it's usual tricks of getting people to like Randy Jackson's catchphrases. This year was, "You could sing the phonebook!" & "Dude, you sung the phonebook!" So, of course, AI taped all the finalists literally singing the phonebook.

Randy's other catchphrases that didn't quite catch on this year were:
  • "Dude, you could sing my obituary!"
  • "You could sing about my urinary incontinence!"
  • "Dude, you've got karaoke night won!"
  • "Man, you could be the over the top singer in my church choir!"
  • "You look like hell, but your butter!"
  • "Wow, you've got singing in the shower on lock!"

Now I wonder why none of those stuck.

Moving on, Anyone see Lisa Rinna in the crowd? When the camera sped past her, I thought something looked a little unusual with her lips again.

Ooh! A really funny part of the night was when my five year old son was watching Jennifer Holliday and Jessica Sanchez intently. At the end when they were belting out the last notes trying to one up each other, he looks at me so matter of factly and says, "Mommy, these ladies are crazy." I couldn't contain myself. I laughed SO hard. It's times like these that I wish I had the camera rolling. Only later to use the footage to embarrass him with once he gets a girlfriend or married, of course. Just kidding.
Click & Look for "Crazy" Starting at 2:39 in the video!

AI also took the time to show us the inside of Steven Tyler's trailer and the walls were hot pink. I liked it but the verdict is still out on what the male population on earth has to say. With that being said, I love Steven Tyler and if there's one person who could pull it off other than Perez Hilton, would be Mr. Tyler. As some of you may not know, my claim to fame was being backstage at an Aerosmith concert in Tampa where those huge lips graced my forehead. Yup, he kissed me and I haven't washed my forehead since. Kidding.

All in all, this year's AI was great, but not like last year's. There was no Lady Gaga diving off cliffs. That, my friend, was awesome. Click for the 2011 performance!
