Had I felt like still being awake between 2 am and 4 am this morning, I could have found out “live” that Jordin Sparks had won the current season of American Idol with her rendition of the world’s lamest song: “This is My Now.” Surprisingly, however, I was asleep at the time and didn’t find out the unsurprising results until Hubby heard the news on CNN before he left for work. Luckily, they re-aired the show for we Kenyan sleepyheads during prime time.
Blake Lewis, the beat boxing cutie for whom the “Now” song was clearly not intended, made a great show of pretending to be shocked that he didn’t win. And the judges did a good job of setting up his loss over the extraordinarily tedious two-hour long show.
Oh well. Congratulations, Jordin. I hope that you manage to become more successful than last year’s AI winner Taylor Hicks who has sold even less albums than that “She Bangs” guy.
