Sounds like a buddy cop show.

2 questions:

1- was Hasselhoff crying at the end?

2- since Katherine didn't win what is the expected timetable of her first nude pictoral?

Was thinking the same thing. Maybe he's just a sensitive guy! :)

What a weird finale :o

The right result though. I thought Taylor barely hit a bum note all season. Birmingham, AL looked like it was going crazy.

Great to see the Hoff in tears

I thought the finale was pretty good but eclectic. Al Jarreau, Burt Bacharach and Dionne Warwick, Prince, Meatloaf, and Toni Braxton - whoa! It was interesting seeing all of them, but Al Jarreau was really not sounding his best, and Meatloaf was awful.

If anything can be said about the final, I think it's that neither of the finalists were the best. Chris Daughtry out-performed both of them. For that matter, I thought Elliott was better too. Oh, well. I wasn't planning on buying anybody's album anyway, so what do I care?

Did Taylor record that Ford commercial before this year's AI began? It just doesn't seem their style to allow such a thing.

Since they did those stupid Ford commercials during AI, I'm assuming it was part of that.

And again the TiVo crowd is clueless about any commercials that take place anywhere. I'm relating to Adam Sandler FF'ing through the 'unimportant' parts of his life, I guess. :roll:

Aidin Vaziri, Chronicle Pop Music Critic wrote:It's safe to go out of doors now -- the Idols have left

The people who put together the "American Idols Live!" Tour did everything to keep reviewers away from the show on Wednesday at the HP Pavilion in San Jose. They refused to hold press tickets. They made photographers sign a nasty contract. If they could have, you get the feeling they would have cordoned off the entire arena with a velvet rope just to keep out anyone with a pen.

But it was hard to tell whether they were trying to protect the 10 gleaming season five finalists or the poor music journalists who had to sit through more than two grueling hours of amateur pop stars wheezing their way through some of the worst songs ever written -- FM horrors such as Styx's "Renegade," the Doobie Brothers' "Takin' It to the Streets," Bon Jovi's "Wanted Dead or Alive," Bob Seger's "Hollywood Nights," and, worst of all, a grand finale with all parties involved joining in on James Brown's "Living in America." Call it a mercy diss.

The favorite fallen Idols appeared more or less in the order they were given the boot from the ratings-shattering television show, which meant the first hour of the concert was wasted on over-styled kids whose futures almost certainly lie in performing at strip-mall openings with William Hung and holding up liquor stores.

For all their plastic enthusiasm and canned thank-yous, even Simon Cowell would concede that Ace Young, Mandisa, Lisa Tucker, Paris Bennett (who didn't even bother to sing the chorus on her karaoke version of "Crazy in Love") and Bucky Covington will never play on a stage this big again, if any.

Former roller-skating waitress Kellie Pickler might, but judging by the little red bustier she wore while singing Bonnie Raitt's "Something to Talk About," it would have to involve some kind of pole.

Meanwhile, the not-quite sold-out crowd of school kids and their parents had to sit through a long series of advertisements disguised as an intermission before seeing the four finalists in action.

Performing in front of a backdrop that looked as if it had been pieced together by a first-year Academy of Art student using aluminum foil and a Commodore 64 screensaver, it was obvious that the competition was not quite over for metalhead Chris Daughtry.

With the veins in his chrome dome bulging and eyebrows furrowed, he grunted his way through the aforementioned tunes by Bon Jovi and Styx, threatening, "If I come back here next year, will you guys be here?" But his 15 minutes were already up.

Elliott Yamin, smacking gum and still holding out on that orthodontist appointment, enforced most of the children's bedtimes with his watery renditions of James Moody's "Moody's Mood for Love" and Elvis Presley's "Trouble" before joining the other male losers for a version of Guns N' Roses' "Patience" that left out the best bit -- the whistling.

After sitting out the beginning of the 60-date tour for dubious medical reasons, runner-up Katharine McPhee performed a rousing version of Aretha Franklin's "Think" and the two songs that she will take to her grave -- "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" and KT Tunstall's "Black Horse & the Cherry Tree." She looked radiant in a black, backless evening gown, but her strained smile made you wonder if she wasn't just some genetically modified robot clone concocted out of DNA samples just to keep the show on the road.

Headliner and competition winner Taylor Hicks, meanwhile, looked like one of the California Raisins without a costume. He sweated and groaned and did his ridiculous drunk accountant calisthenics to songs that no one with their mental facilities in working order would actually like.

Hilariously, Hicks ran through the audience for his opening number, Elvis Presley's "Jailhouse Rock," and strapped on a guitar that obviously wasn't plugged in for his rendition of "Hollywood Nights." He contorted his face through lifeless takes on Stevie Wonder's "Living for the City," "Takin' It to the Streets" and the dreadful original "Do I Make You Proud?"

Frankly, it would have been more fun to watch Paula Abdul perform three hours of armpit farts.

Is it too late to consider a career in goat herding?

Would someone please post the contestants odds of winning? Anything that looks like gambling gets blocked at work and I've got an Idol draft coming up this afternoon. Thanks.

I haven't seen any lines yet, just general prop bets (gender of winner, last two finalists, e.g.)

I think next year's competition should be restricted to women and beat boxers.

I think the 6/6 gender split might really hurt this year. None of the men seem to be at the races.

LaKisha and Melinda are the two to beat early on.
