The Madness is over

If you made it through the two-hour spectacle also known as the “American Idol” finale without flipping the channel — and/or vomiting on your television screen — then you are a better person than I.

I only watched parts of the grand finale but from what I can gather it was more of a washed-out musician fest than anything else. From Old Fogey Rod Stewart to KISS and even Cyndi Lauper, it seems the recession has finally hit FOX. In order to fill up a two-hour long crapfest, they had to search the clearance bin for celebrities.

It’s shocking to me that they were able to stretch a 30-second announcement into two hours … or perhaps what’s more shocking is that probably 30 million viewers tuned in for the full two hours.

But the news we were all waiting for finally came at the last seven minutes of the show … or should I say, first seven minutes of the next show. Damn “American Idol” … what? Two hours wasn’t enough time to squeeze the winner announcement in?

And of course, as we’ve all heard — been texted, tweeted or saw on facebook — Kris With a K Allen is the new American Idol, leaving Adam Lambert desperately trying to dry his eyes before the pounds of mascara came a-tumblin’ down.

So what did you think about the finale? Were you happy that Kris won? Do you think Fergie should stop wearing pleather? Are you as thankful as we, the Channel Surfers, that "American Idol" is finally over??
