Jermaine wasn't my favorite, but I absolutely loved these results! Why is that? I have not seen a more surprising result from talent reality show in quite some time. Idol has had its WGWG winner for the past four seasons, DwtS winners always seem to be a foregone conclusion by about the third week, and hell, even last season of this show was predictable with Javier.
Now I didn't expect this at all! It made it really intense -- and shall I say fun? -- to watch the results. I mean, Tony Lucca third? Chris Mann less than 1% away from him? Jermaine winning!? Wouldn't have predicted it in years.
And seeing Jermaine's reaction warmed my heart. I loved watching him try to belt out I Believe I Can Fly with his wife in his arms for a good minute. That was sweet. Everyone else on the stage during his final performance was a bit awkward, but let's ignore that fact. Everything else about the results was a thrill to watch.
By the way, does anyone notice a theme here? R. Kelly has the magic touch! Melanie sang with him on the finale of The X Factor, now we got Jermaine here singing his biggest hit. Lesson learned: if you want to win one of these shows, sing some R. Kelly.
Speaking of Erin, that girl is hilarious! She should try stand-up comedy if singing doesn't work out for her. Her time backstage has always been hilarious.
