My DVR decided that tonight’s finale was only one hour. So I missed Michael Bolton’s performance. Insert your own joke here.
You did a choir contest and gave Patti LaBelle a team and didn’t think she’d win? You’re nuts.
Of course, she lost to the guy who’s a reality TV star and has won these kinds of shows before.
Speaking of which, the final announcements of 3rd, 2nd, and 1st place were straight out of the play book from DANCING WITH THE STARS. Turn all lights red, throw a spotlight on each contestant, and have the host give the narrative storyline for each contestant before saying, “Coming in third and thus out of the contest. . . “
I’m sorry I missed the rest of the week. I’d love to have seen Blake Shelton’s team doing Marc Broussard’s “Home,” one of the rare five star songs on my iPod. (Watch the video here. I still can’t believe it’s a little white guy singing like that. You can see the choir practice on YouTube.) And I’m a sucker for “Fight of the Bumblebee.” (Here’s a piano variation called “Bumblebee Boogie,” whilst I’m YouTubing it.)
I did root for Patti LaBelle a little – she’s a fellow diabetic, after all.
Tracy Morgan has done live TV before. He’s done SNL, right? Was he at the show under protest Did he co-write the movie he’s there to pimp and was unsure of his standing with the WGA East or something? Or was it drugs? He looked completely out of it.
Most exciting commercial of the night: American Gladiators is coming back in January! Whoo-hoo!
