I wonder how long they are bound to them.

I felt just a tinge of disappointment in the results, but nonetheless, this was an awesome season!!! They both were amazing singers with completely different styles, which is great!

I am sure going to miss this show for the next 7 months.....but at least I won't be a slave to the tv anymore!!

My favorite part of the show last night was when Ben Stiller, Jack Black and Robert Downey Jr. were back-up singers for Gladys Knight. That was so funny!!!

I know that Bo Bice is out of his AI contract and just came out with a CD with the kind of music that he wanted, it is very different from his first CD. He was second to Carrie Underwood; so that was like 3 years ago. I'm thinking that the deal with AI is a 2 year contract because that would fit in Bo's case as well as in Fantasia's. It was about 2 years after her win that she began playing a role in The Color Purple. Of course, I could be 100% wrong; I'm just speculating.

I was so happy with last nights results. I have wanted David Cook to win ever since he sang "Hello" And I thought that his performance with ZZ Top was unnbelievable. You could tell that he enjoyed the heck out of that.

WOW!!! 12 Million votes!!! That's nothing to sneeze at.

I was absolutely thrilled with the results. I have no doubt that David Archuleta will have a fine career so I'm not worried about that. David Cook is awesome and was more unique and he rocked.

The ZZ Top performance was great!!

Am I the only one who thought that the Seal/Syesha performance sucked? Actually their stage interaction was great but the song itself was bluddy awful. They murdered Seals great song as far as I was concerned.

Was it just me or did anyone else get goose bumps during George Michael's performance? He claimed he had a cold, but I thought it was really fantastic. I was super-surprised!

As for Simon, I couldn't help but think he got the results before hand. He's not one to ever want to be wrong and if he hadn't apologized to Cook and claimed to have changed his mind after reviewing the tapes, he would have looked like an idiot when the winner was announced - especially since Cook won by such a large margin. That Simon is crazy like a fox.

I had thought that he and Paula were more impressed with Cook all along. And Randy seemed to favor Archuleta a lot of the time. Which I thought was interesting since Randy's such a rocker. But he produces all kinds of stuff now so maybe he was hoping to get a deal with David Archuleta and his dad.

Great final show. I'm sorry it's over, but glad too. I've been glued to the screen too much too. Btw, I thought Brooke did really well last night and so did Michael Johns. Carly kind of overdid it a little. My DH thinks she must have a lot of leg tatts since she always keeps them covered up. It was fun seeing some of the earlier contestants like Chakeezie and the male dancer guy - can't think of his name. (They say the mind is the first thing to go....)

BJean, I thought Michael Johns did great last night, but he was one of my favorites from the start and I was really disappointed when he got voted off so early.

I enjoyed David's performance with ZZ Top so much, when we got home tonight, we played it again on Tivo. It seemed like that song was made for him.

Susan he was my favorite from the get-go too. I was very disappointed when he was voted off and I was really happy that he did so well last night too.

I agree. David Cook seemed thoroughly in his own skin when performing with ZZ Top! I wouldn't let my DH delete the tivo either. I want my DD to see it too.

BJean . . . I've wondered about Carly's legs too . . .she ALWAYS has black nylons on when she is in a dress . . . but it can't just be tats because she isn't shy with her arms . . . I'm guessing it's what they tats might be!

Christasha, you may be right, I hadn't thought about that. She always wears sleeveless blouses, and I thought that was to show off the tats. Maybe she does have ones on her legs and AI considers them to be too inappropriate for the show or something.

Yeah, I agree. And maybe having her legs tattooed as well as her arms would appear to be too freakish for American Idol. I saw a guy once who had his entire legs tattooed with a solid design except for the back of his calves. There he had an opened zipper tattooed where there were creepy round bugs appearing to tumble out. A little unnerving, I must say.
