musings of a subway performer and lifelong troubadour

we greet the end of this season with… RELIEF

IDOLERS!!!!

It’s our penultimate communication… Who will win?  Who is guest appearing / performing tonight?  Will the show be a spectacle leading up to revealing the new Idol?  Or will it be all about Simon’s farewell?  Will Simon be naughty or nice?  So many questions, which we will now answer with a question: WHO CARES???  Without a doubt this has been the most BORING season of Idol.  No truly interesting personalities, no real upsets, nothing to get passionate about.  Simon agrees:

"After a while, you start to go on automatic pilot," Cowell told Oprah Winfrey during an interview. "And there were too many times, Oprah, where I was sitting there bored, and I thought, 'The end of the day, the audience doesn't tune in to watch me being bored. They deserve more than that.' But I can't hide it when I'm bored. I just can't fake it."

And thus we greet the end of this season with… RELIEF. 

BUT there is still tonight!  We heard a rumor that PAULA ABDUL may return!  Oh please oh please let it be true!  And please oh please let’s hope she sniffed some airplane glue before putting on her rhinestone QVC line and marching out on stage.  That might spice things up a bit!  And maybe Crystal’s boyfriend (who was noticeably ABSENT last night from her clan – replaced by Dad whose interviews were edited just enough to make it seem like he can speak in complete sentences) will wear the American flag pants again!  We can hope.  We think it’s Crystal’s win tonight, but then again crazier things have happened… We’ll see who America chose!

And speaking of the winner, have you ever wondered what the Idols “get” for winning the show.  Well, they get money.  We found a fun little article on popeater that we thought might interest y’all (pasted below).  Alright, before we start acting way too interested in the grand finale tonight, we better go (and make sure the DVR is set to record…! J)!

Meyer & Abramson – OUT!
