DwtS results/AI finale ...  
So, thoughts on the winner of season 8 of Dancing with the Stars, but first ... woohoo to Apolo last night!!!!

I'm really glad that Shawn took it for two reasons.

1.) I didn't want Cheryl to win three times. Petty, yeah, but there you have it.
2.) Shawn and Mark's freestyle last night.

If viewers were voting for the season, then, yeah it should have been Gilles/Cheryl, but if they were voting for the night ... Shawn and Mark all the way. I've never cared about Shawn/Mark in this competition; I've always been pretty meh, but that freestyle was awesome. It was absolutely fabulous and easily the best dance last night, bar none. So, I was happy with their win. Yay.

American Idol

I sooooooooo want Kris to win. They did to him, what they did to Justin in s1 and Blake in s6 (and I say this as a Jordin fan), which was give them the same song(s) that were so much more suited for one over the other. In s1 and s6's case, the over-the-top, belting ballads were much more suited for Kelly and Jordin's voices over Justin and Blake's. Tonight, they did the same thing -- although, regardless, the song was craptastic for both contestants. The only difference between this and season1, is that both Randy and Kara acknowledged that the song was in too high a key for Kris. Boy still did his valiant best. He kicked ASS with his personal pick -- Ain't No Sunshine, the song that made me a fan, but then was given a laidback, lowkey (albeit strong socially conscious) song from Fuller, and then the craptastic winning song. Ah well.

As of now, DialIdol has him slightly ahead, but I'm sure that will change and Adam will win. Until the announcement, though, I'll hold out a little hope for my beloved Kris.

It's only in the past two weeks that I've completely come over to support Kris - I don't follow Idol closely, but he blew me away last week and this week. I was so disappointed by the later song choices, though!

I gave up early this season but his original 'Ain't No Sunshine' brought me back. I lurve him. The last two song choices sucked, but Kris did the BEST he could with them!!!

I thought the same thing you did about the "coronation song." It was so obviously more suited to Adam's voice than Kris'. And, as always, the coronation song was craptastic. Why in the world can they not get a good song?? I liked the way they did it last year better, where they had several the finalists could choose from to sing on the finale, and then the winner sang the "chosen" song. Kris kicked ass on "Ain't No Sunshine."

I actually like "A Moment Like This," "This is My Now," and "The Time of My Life," but the rest suck monkey-balls. This was no exception.

Still, Kris was AWESOME!!!!!!!!! And woohoo, tomorrow we get Kris AND Cookie!!!

I think you asked about the Glee pilot a few days ago... I don't know if you ever found it but it aired after American Idol last night and is on hulu now.
