Thanks everyone for the updates!
Well, based on what I'd read about guests for the finale, I wasn't expecting much, but I ended up loving most of it. Enjoyed the variety and the humor, the old fogey singers (Tony Bennett, Tom Jones, Steven Tyler ,...), the cheesy Ford commercial montage, and the contestants sounded better as a group tonight than they did all season! The results...well, that's another thing. Just kidding. I think Scotty is a good kid, and I wish him the best - he will have a great career!
I watched more of The Middle and Modern Family. I switched during commercials. Glad I got to see Haley & Tony Bennett, Bono, James with Judas Priest, Steven Tyler's song. Glad I didn't have to watch all of Beyonce's song. Sure hope they change something with the voting next year. These kids with too much time on their hands and the Southern voters, stole it for Scotty....and Lauren. I like Scotty's voice,but IMO not worthy of the win. Looking at some of the other contestants, I thought "why didn't you win?". There was some great talent this season.
I would be curious to see the numbers.. as I think Scotty blew Lauren away.

Tonight's show was much better than I expected, and I almost didn't watch because I didn't really care who won and because last night's show was just so underwhelming. But, I'm glad I tuned in and saw some great acts: Judas Priest and James were awesome, Jack Black was hilarious, Carrie was great, then of course there was David Cook in the audience. Yes!
I could have done w/o JLo and her husband, Lady Gaga, Spiderman, and all those random girls onstage who apparently were on the show at some time this season but I don't recognize most of them at all!
Congratulations to (Doody) Scotty.
She didn't seem to be connecting with Carrie during the song. She was looking straight ahead with that odd look on her face and Carrie was going for the duet connect ... eye contact.
I feel a little sorry for her because I think she would have benefited most from the AI "grooming", and is hands down the better singer.

James was freakin' awesome tonight! He fit right in with Judas Priest.
Casey and Jack...hilarious! I LOVED it!
Tony and Haley...so sweet! They were cute together.
Tim M. Yum. "Nuff said. I will say this...IMO, that was the best Scotty's sounded all season.
Ok...I'm going to admit this. I'm going to be 38 next month and I LOVE Lil Jon. Yes. I said LOVE. My 19 year old son loves rap and I think I've listened to it so much that it grew on me!

These Idols can Hope they have the careers of the "old acts" on the finale. If you go to Vegas and try to get tickets for Gladys Knight,Tom Jones, or Tony Bennett it will cost you over $100 if you can even get into a sold out show.They have staying power which is what I hope these Idol contestants hope to have also. I doubt they want to be the one hit wonders that litter the radio today!
