I admit, I watch this show, primarily because me wife enjoys it.
This season was the first in a while that I actually liked one of the performers, and IMO she got robbed in the finals.
Crystal Bowersox is just a tremendous performer, with such a strong voice. How Lee won is beyond me (although I know it's because the 14 year old girl vote goes a long LONG way).
Okay season, okay finals, but could they get any more old people to perform? I liked the Alice Cooper appearance, and the Hall and Oates, but the rest? Most of them looked like they were ready for the retirement home. Joe Cocker looked like he was about to crap himself (not that it's unusual for him), Christine Aguillera had an old lady hairdo, Janet looked horrible, and Michael McDonald made me remember how much I used to hate him.
At least Alanis Morrisette looked like the same old Alanis. Too bad she was outsung on her own song.
I could have done without all the Simon fellatio, but at least we won't have him around next season.
I got to see the film Saturday morning at an advance screening. I can't say too much now without heavy use of spoiler text, but I can say without reservation that is the absolute best of the Potter films. I am DYING to see Part 2 now.
