AI5: Finale... Finally!


The least interesting American Idol season has finally ended. Taylor Hicks will go down in history as the only gray-haired champion. Good for him... he's okay. But overall, I just couldn't get into this season as much as the last few.

Nevertheless, there was a party. Here's a rundown of some of the highlights of the Bender's AI Finale Party:
  • Tamyra Gray makes her 32nd special guest appearance on AI by working the crowds.
  • Daughtry and some other dudes... I know I'm supposed to get excited because their from York and all, but what's good about these Live fellas?
  • Mark's Berman-esque Taylor "Braxton" Hicks nickname takes life as he sings with Toni Braxton.
  • The Brokenote Cowboys put on a pretty good show, out-performing the likes of Meatloaf and Toni Braxton for sure.
  • Welcome to the party soon-to-be SusCom Idol Pool winner Sean Kirby.
  • Prince's performance is strange... 10 minutes prior to the ending of the show, no Idol sharing the stage, singing something new nobody knows. Thumbs down to the obvious self-promo and alleged ego trip.
  • Easy, Mark - it's just Hasselhoff!
  • "We're proud of you Taylor Hicks." - MJ
Next up: What will Chris Daughtry do?

Hate, hate, hate, hate...

Easy on Live and Prince, there. Granted, Live's best days are behind them, but they were pretty big back in the late 80's/early 90's. And what does Prince have to gain by appearing with one of those goofy Idol'ers? Prince is the man. It's the Prince show! I thought he was fabulous.
 
I must echo the Prince sentiment. I thought he was a welcome performance to the show. What better way to get ready for the new American Pop Idol then to have the ultimate Male Pop Idol perform just before the announcement?

The only thing better then that would have been if they had Hasselhoff up there singing.
 
Yeah... "Whatever that song was" by Prince is a real chart-topper. His performance didn't fit in with the flow of the show. That's not hate, that's just stating the obvious. And if it doesn't fit, Prince must split.
