This is what I wrote that night.
American Idol winner - wtf? possibly the most depressing thing I've seen on TV in a long time. So horribly wrong. Looking forward to seeing what the judges think. I noticed Simon didn't stand up at the end along with the other judges. Trust Americans to pick the safe, bland middle of the road choice. At least Adam won't have to sing that horrible single.
Weird: Cyndi Lauper playing the dulcimer on Time After Time; Steve Martin playing the banjo; bikini girl.
Painful: Having to sit through 2 freakin' hours of crap for a few seconds of revealing the winner.
Evocative: Brian May of Queen playing with Adam Lambert, reincarnation of Freddie Mercury.
On the other hand, maybe America should be scared of a man who will wear this outfit - (round bling thingy on his thigh certainly reminiscent of handcuffs):
