Our long national nightmare is over
I am perfectly happy to be wrong in my prediction of who was going to go home tonight--I said Bucky only because I thought Kevin Covais had enough support to get him through a couple more rounds. (And might I add, I still did get all of the bottom three correct, but it wasn't really that challenging.) And after that disturbing and horrendous commercial with Kevin's head on a musclebound sand body, I think they had stretched that "Kevin is a stud" joke well past its breaking point. And it was good to see Kevin gracious in defeat and acknowledging his fellow singers, so it was a generally satisfying 30 minutes tonight. We even got a little Paula weirdness to top it off--her speech about the non-winners on the show having a history of going on to "greatness" was so absurd I'm not even sure it needs rebuttal. Really Paula, yes, Jennifer Hudson somehow got a part in the movie of "Dreamgirls" and we'll see how that goes. "Greatness" is just a little premature. But the only other person you mentioned was Clay, who more or less was treated as a co-winner in the second version of Idol. Kevin Covais was in 11th place. And none of the runner-ups besides Clay have even had people buy their records, let alone achieve anything in the general vicinity of "greatness." Actually, why am I wasting my time ranting about Paula? Fingerhut out.
