In case you didn't flush two hours of your life down the hole and watch the finale of American Idol last night, here's what you missed.

  • Soul Patrol beat out McPheever (i.e. gray haired dude is your new American Idol)
  • Chris Daughtry impersonated Ed Kowalczyk in front of Ed Kowalczyk.
  • McPheever sang a duet with Meat Loaf. Meat Loaf!
  • Prince sang two songs with a pair of slinky dancers and walked off stage without looking at Ryan Seacrest. Note that Prince didn't have to sing with any of the contestants the way the other guest stars did. He's Prince, dammit.
  • Burt Bacharach played piano during painful contestant medley numbers.
  • Kelly Pickler further added to the caricature that is Kelly Pickler by throwing a snail on the floor and running away from a Lobster in front of Wolfgang Puck.
  • One of the audition rejects who idolizes Clay Aiken won a Ryan Seacrest award for something, started singing a song, and then made like an 11 year old girl at an Usher concert when Clay Aiken appeared on stage in a dashing Beatles mop top.
  • Soul Patrol did not sing a “Sweet Freedom” duet with Michael McDonald. Which is bullshit, because that's all I really wanted.

Oh, yeah. I pay attention.

So glad Taylor won. I was nauseated by Katharine the night before being so shocked at how good she was for hitting the right note without the aid of her tuning earpiece. And I've just about had enough of the McParents.
