Wednesday, May 26, 2010: <I>American Idol</I>

Our long national nightmare is about to be over. Thank god. This season has seemingly gone on forever, even more so than in season's past, because the eventual final two was so predictable for so long. Crystal Bowersox seemed like a shoo-in for the finals the moment she stepped foot on the stage and started singing. Lee DeWyze had that competently quiet thing that Kris Allen worked so successfully last year. And aside from wildcard Siobhan Magnus, can you really see the likes of Casey James or Michael Lynche actually being the next American Idol winner? I'm not even going to remember their names in two months. As it is I can't even name the Top 10.

Anyway, tonight the winner will be crowned. I'm guessing it will be Lee since the judges have been heaping the praise on him the last few weeks, as they've tired of Crystal just being good at what she does. Basically making this season finale just a do-over of last year, with less glitter and unicorns and more matted hair and hookah microphones.

Tune in at 8 for the (at least) two hour finale. Given all of the overruns this season the winner probably won't be announced until 10:10. I'm sure I'll fast-forward through the majority of it, I do hope that they do right by Simon and give him a decent send-off.
