    Congratulations Candice! That last duet with Kree was the best of the night.

    Did you notice that Mariah sings the runs like Candice (I've not really heard Mariah sing before) yet Randy kept telling everyone that Candice was taking them to school. Mariah did appreciate that Candice has similar vocal ability.

    Janelle and The Band Perry brought down the house with the opening number. Why couldn't the girls and boys all move like that during the show?

    Instead, they need backup singers and dancers to fill out their blank spots. That was especially noticeable tonight. I wonder if the backups will tour with them to cover the flaws in no choreography or blending of voices.

    After Janelle the next best performance was by Angie, Adam and Jessie J. Poor Adam seemed the after thought rather than Jessie J. Why couldn't Angie have displayed that energy on the show?

    The first "conspiracy" comedy bit was much better than the second "make fun of the judges" which was pretty lame.

    The tribute to Randy was fine. I kept waiting for other announcements, but that will come in the next week, I'm sure.

    No rock and roll, but the five girls did well - much better than the five boys in any case. I don't think this is a tour I would buy a ticket to see.

    CONGRATULATIONS CANDICE!!!! The girls said they were going to party, let's join them!

    Congratulations to Candice and Kree! It must have felt exilarating after 3 tries, to actually win Idol! Even though Kree is the one (of the two of them) that I will probably download songs from, it was wonderful to see Candice so happy. Both of these girls are winners, Angie too. I have no doubt that she will get a record contract and a career from her experience on Idol. Only thing I noticed, was that Nicki seemed either subdued or disinterested in the show, and she wasn't featured in a song moment. I confess that I am not familar with her music and I am not a fan of rap, but I do think she should have had a moment. I didn't see the point of having JLo and Pitbull. Why not NIcki and Pitbull? They have collaborated on songs before.
    Other than that, I liked the show and the music. I did read today that Nicki has decided to not return next season, and Ryan should have acknowledged her contributions to the show this Season. But perhaps it was just too late to work something out on that. Since Randy has been with the show since the beginning, it was fitting to spend a little time reviewing some of his highlights over the years. I just wish he had given more constructive advice to the contestants and hadn't been so biased towards his chosen ones. But that is a complaint that has applied to all the Judges, every Season, imo.
    All in all, a good finale.

    Congrats to Candice, but let's be honest here, the winner should have been Zoanette!

    Ha Ha! I had mercifully forgotten all about Zoanette.

    Congratulations to Candace! My favorite from the get-go.

    I didn't watch much either. I tuned in and FFed to hear what Jimmy had to say most weeks. I don't agree with this being fixed but if it was, what were they thinking? American Ballad should have been the name. Terrible season. Terrible. I didn't care who won. Big yawn from me.

    I thought Angie was the star of the night. To think that girl is one year from HS graduation. Her maturity and poise is remarkable. Going to UK to sing with her idol makes her the big winner. Even Adam mouthed "wow" when the offer was made.

    I hope that Candice learns to do more than stand on the stage, unmoving with a sour look on her face... seriously, after three tries to get on AI, she might have figured out how to change things.

    And it is possible since the JHud made some remarkable changes in her style.

    I was pleasantly surprised at the Finale. It was such a departure from the show this season. It was upbeat and energetic. Why didn't they do that earlier in the season as others have posted upthread.

    The Band Perry and Janelle were pretty good. Actually, Janelle has a much better voice than the lead female in the Band Perry. That band is full of members with average voices. They could use Janelle. Really.

    Keith Urban never sounded so good. I was surprised.

    As much as I dislike Nicki, I think that not allowing her to perform was tacky. Especially, when we had to endure Jennifer Lopez. OMG, how horrific. Why was she repeatedly grabbing her crotch? Male teen singers may do that, but a 40 something woman? PLEASE. Why can't she go away?

    We don't know if she was not allowed to perform or if she just didn't want to. She has seemed pretty much not into it the last few weeks.

    No dispute with you on JLo. Nothing about her or the performance was interesting to me......and do not bring her back as a judge!!!!!
