On pins and needles with 'Idol' Top 2

SPOILER ALERT!!! Tonight's blog entry will reveal the winner of "American Idol." Don't read any further if you don't want to know the results. Join HLN's "Showbiz Tonight" at 11 a.m. EST Thursday for a special live edition devoted to the finale.

10:02 p.m. – After the nationwide vote the winner of "American Idol" 2010 is ...

LEE DEWYZE!!!!

10:01 p.m. - We are running a little late, but here comes the official envelope.

9:53 p.m. -Ahhh, it was not to be.

I was hoping Janet and Paula would do some moves from "What Have You Done for Me Lately" or any of the other videos Paula choreographed.

Oh well. Seacrest reminds us that we are here for MamaSox and Lee. Almost forgot about them for a minute.

They sing a duet, "With a Little Help From My Friends", and I really do like them performing together.

And no, I am not surprised when Joe Cocker shows up. Lee looks like he is in heaven. Joe has still got it.

9:49 p.m. - OK, the show just started as far as I am concerned!

Ms. Jackson in a body suit with a stage full of back-up dancers working "Nasty Boys."

That's what I'm talking about! And I bet I know who is going to join her on stage ...

9:45 p.m. – Wait, the contestants are singing a Janet Jackson song – "Again."

No way!

Janet Jackson is in the house rocking her new, fabu short hair cut and singing her single "Nothing."

Color me stunned.

9:39 p.m. - Simon takes to the stage to offer a few words of thanks.

He's clearly emotional, and he gets a heart-felt and deserved standing ovation from the crowd.

Well done mate!

9:36 p.m.- Oh hells yeah!!!

Past "Idol" winners Kelly Clarkson, Ruben Studdard, Fantasia, Kris Allen, Jordin Sparks, Carrie Underwood, Taylor Hicks plus a bunch of the former contestants are back to sing "Together We Are One" as Paula sits on Simon's lap.

INCREDIBLE!!!

9:30 p.m. - So Ms. Paula is now into stand-up it seems.

She's got some jokey jokes. I think she is having some trouble with the cue cards though. She lets Simon know that the show will go on without him.

Look how young he was that first season! Nice retrospective of Simon over the years set to Sinatra's "My Way."

I miss him already.

9:28 p.m. -Paula looks lovely and well-rested.

I used to love some of the crazy that poured out of her mouth, and I really do miss her dynamic with Simon. You could feel the genuine affection.

And here she is live!

BEAUTIFUL!!!

9:20 p.m. - Just what we needed to see. Simon feeling himself up and then in the bed with Randy.

Wait, I spoke too soon.

The General is back to perform "Pants on the Ground" complete with a new track and some back-up dancers. And just when you thought it couldn't get any worse, William Hung joins him for a duet.

There are no words.

9:15 p.m. -Why didn't it occur to me that they would hook Lee up with the band Chicago?

I mean really, isn't that just how the night is going?

They sing a medley of hits, and I loved Chicago back in the day, but with Lee they make me feel sleepy.

I just had a flashback to Adam last year with KISS. Curse you Lambert for ruining me for all future finales!!!

And was that Lori Loughlin from "Full House?" How fitting.

9:07 p.m. – Howdy cutie Casey James.

I don't know a single dude who plays guitar who doesn't play "Every Rose Has Its Thorn."

OMG! It's Bret Michaels!!!

He looks pretty darn good!!!

Way to come back from an almost fatal brain hemorrhage. First "Celebrity Apprentice" and then rocking out on the "Idol" stage. The audience is going nuts!

9:05 p.m. - Lee and MamaSox get new, custom designed 2011 cars.

Yay for them!

9:02 p.m. -Seacrest says it's hard to believe that it's been five years since Carrie Underwood was crowned "Idol" champ.

Heck, it feels like five years since this show started!

Carrie sings "Undo It," and she works it.

I have always loved her. Simon totally called it when he predicted that she would become one of "Idol's" biggest stars.

This chick is the bizness, no doubt. Sorry folks, but there isn't anyone this season who can carry her water.

8:54 p.m. - MamaSox sings "Ironic," and guess who hits the stage?

Yup. Alanis Morrissette.

Way to clean up the lyrics of "You Oughta Know." Alanis looked and sounded pretty good though.

I swear this is starting to feel like the most completely random "Idol" finale I have ever seen.

8:47 p.m. - OMG.

OK, I think I am starting to get it. The theme is "songs from before the contestants were born."

The guys sing Hall & Oates tunes including "I Can't Go For That" and "ManEater."

Sidenote: Tim Urban still can't sing.

Back to our regularly scheduled blogging, this choreography is hard to watch.

And there's Hall & Oates to sing "You Make My Dreams Come True."

Wow. Just Wow. Don't get me wrong, I love all of these artists and their songs, but I really didn't think this was the "Idol" demographic.

8:42 p.m. - Ricky Gervais offers Cowell some love.

Wonder how the bit played with "Idol" fans, 'cause British humor can come across as cruel. I thought it was hilarious!

8:35 p.m. – The ladies come out to sing "Beautiful" (some of them rather badly), and I think this is our cue that someone younger than the age of 50 is soon to hit the stage.

Then they launch into "Stronger," and I think "If Paige had sung like that before, she would have gotten so much further."

Before you can say "Genie in a Bottle," Christina Aguilera is there to sing "You Lost Me."

Is it me or is the sound off in the Nokia? XTina has an incredible voice, but I am not totally hearing it tonight even though she appears to be singing her heart out with all of the riffs and runs.

Hmmm. Like most of this season, something just seems off.

8:30 p.m. - This finale has officially messed me up.

Dane Cook performs a diddy I guess is called "Simon Says," which sets some of his insults to music.

They trot out some of the worst of the auditioners, and I think the producers have lost control of one who pulls a "Kanye" rambling how he is going to replace Simon. You can tell by the way they swing the camera and quickly go to commercial that this is not going the way it was planned.

Someone please save us.

8:26 p.m. - Back from break, there is "Big Mike" Lynche looking fine in a black suit singing the Doobie Brothers hit "Taking It to the Streets."

I think I know where this is going.

Why yes, yes it is Michael McDonald joining "Big Mike" on stage. Now I love me some Michael McDonald, who now somewhat resembles the Colonel from KFC, but I don't at all get this line up of performers.

8:18 p.m. - Hey Paula!

She's back for a video piece which treats us to some of the great Cowell quips. Cute.

Then Siobhan Magnus and Aaron Kelly start to sing "How Deep Is Your Love" before they turn the song over to...

The Bee Gees! Really?!?!?

Are these artists Simon loves and/or has worked with?

8:16 p.m. - Playing spot the "celebs" in the audience. There's Bo Bice, Nick Cannon and I think that was Kimberly Caldwelll.

8:12 p.m. - Oops, some technical difficulties when Kris Allen appears on stage and the first seconds of his song we hear what sounds like Seacrest talking to the stage manager.

Kris looks adorable and sounds great. I wish we could have his season back. *SIGH*

8:05 p.m. – OK, now the school outfits make sense as the Top 12 take to the stage to sing "School's Out" along with Alice Cooper and a choir of kids in Cooper make-up.

Orianthi is killing on the guitar, but Cooper's voice has seen better days.

What a strange way to open the show.

8:02 p.m. – Mercy, are those private school outfits Lee and MamaSox are wearing?

Weird.

Seacrest says that coming into the finals, less than 2 percent separated the pair. I wonder if they will actually announce how many votes were cast.

    I mayl never watch American Idol again. Lee had no business winning. His 1st 2 song of the finale did not get good reviews from Randy & the 3d (it's a beautiful day, sucked in my opinion). If you remember a few years ago, the World Idol winner won with it's a beautiful day. He sang it way better than Lee or even Bono. I may begin to watch if the voting is taken out of people's hands, however I do not think this will happen since there is too much money to be made under the current system. There are too many teeny boppers voting. Perhaps there should be 2 separate shows catering to teeny boppers and adults. Crystal Bowersox is perhaps the best vocalist/musician I have ever seen on Idol. Many times in the past I have predicted a winner who usually came in at 2nd place just because of the voting system.

    @Your delusional,

    I voted for Clay in the finale & waited 42 mins redialing until I got through. I had a buddy that voted for Rueben throughout the season, but decided to give it to Clay in the finale. She waited 21 minutes to get through to Clay's line & gave up. She then dialed Rueben's line & got through much quicker & voted 12 times. That is hard data that justifies my claim and that was 7 seasons ago. Also Clay is the 4th best in overall sales to date and was selected to go on tour with Kelly during her first tour. Clay filled the arenas (that's the reason Rueben wasn't selected). I went to a show and the arena applause during his half of the show was significantly better than his co headliner, Kelly. BTW, Clay didn't come out until 2009. Gimme a break!!

    American Music is a vast landscape of styles and tastes. it always has been and always will be. The problem with AI is that the format is too small to demonstrate the many gifts of american music. Tragically, voters can and have fallen into their prejudices in selecting who they feel it the 'next one'. Perhaps the time has come to have singers who specialize in pop, country, R&B,etc be judged in separate categories on shows such as AI.

    While contestants such as Jennifer Hudson have gone on to do great things , Are we , as a nation forgetting that talent is not just a flash in the pan? It was not that long ago that singers such as nat king cole, tony bennett, ella fitzgerald and others had to prove by time and trial that their talent was the real deal. You can not get around process and development and this is a fault with the AI culture in our nation

    I think Simon Cowell has had reservations regarding American Tastes for quite a while and finally got tired of Ai

      Jennifer hudson's only claim to fame is her convienent Oscar for a role she didn't have to stretch that much for.

      As far as famous performers, it does take a while. Take Kelly Clarkson, it wasn't until her 3rd album she overtook Clay Aiken in sales. The exception to the rule in Carrie Underwood, the country community has taken her under it's wing & she had instant success & is currently the highest selling Idol.

    Nothing new, the best singer usually doesn't win. Besides last years foul (Adam & Kris), anyone remember AI 2003, when the Idol Producers gave the win to Rueben over Clay? This is Idol tradition, sorry Chrystal fans. She'll do okay and has a good chance of outselling Lees CDs. Next year should be interesting, at least the first few shows without Simon.

    • Your delusional

      Rueben won over Clay because he got more votes! AI did not give anything to him! In fact, if Clay – like Adam L – had kept his lifestyle choice to himself he may have won. But he decided to use Ai as some sort of forum for his lifestyle and lost! People may accept his choice, but they certanly don't have to vote for him, and obviously they did not!

    Looks like the show is a popularity contest not a real measure of a true musical gift. Lee really didn't measure up to Crystal, and most likely will be one of the fast forgotten winners. Meanwhile Crystal will endure because of her natural raw talent, and the fact that she will be able to manuever outside of the American Idol constraints. Can't wait to buy her music!

    We are very disappointed at the outcome of Idol – we liked Lee, but believe that Crystal far out-shined him – with Simon gone, and the disappointing outcome of this & last year's winner, we just don't believe in Idol anymore – we hope Clive Davis or Simon already have Crystal signed up for an album – we will gladly buy it and support Momma Sox...

    Last nights show was really wierd. Think Crystal deserved the win. Lee singing Chicago was awful. Janet Jackson
    ugh!! Did like BGs and Christina A. Could definitely done without Paula and her wierdness. Kara is getting to be very much like her. I think David Foster would definitely be the best replacement for Simon. He would know what he is talking about. Has supported some of the best talent in the business. He might be too busy to do it but would be the best. I bet they come up with someone like Jamie Fox.

    Can't they do something so that only one call per phone number can be registered so that all the teeny boppers cannot keep calling over and over. Either that or the judge's should ALL be well qualified to make the final decision. Lee DeWeeb hasn't got it.

      Exactly how do you know it's the teeny boppers calling over and over??? You don't even know if they called at all or for who!! Get over it, Crystal lost – plain and simple! The ability to vote more than once is available for both contestants, so it's totally fair!

    I'm not totally upset that Lee won, but Crystal, by all rights, should have won last night. Her voice, artistry, talent and musicianship are just so far above him, it's not even funny. I just know that it was the millions of teenage voters sitting at home voting over and over for the cute guy..and not the true talent of the two. He's okay, and he will do fine, and probably have some decent recordings..but..Crystal deserved to win. She was amazing.

    Crystal and America got ripped off. Le De WEEB should not have won. This is a singing contest and she has the best vocals hands down. He's another average Joe like that Chris guy who won last year. I am so disappointed. I think more "little girls" voted than adults and that's the only reason Lee won. What a shame!

    Bowersox is a boring and very typical barroom belter I could find anywhere at any time, Lee is too self concious to ever amount to anything but a has been befor he even gets started. Sibohan was the only original "talent" this whole season. I predict whatever she does will outsell whatever the final 2 do times 2. The whole premise sucks. Real singers sing whole songs. not readers digets snips that don't challenge anyone. All in all, a phoney show for phoney Americans with uneducated taste,

    When Siobhan and Aaron started "How Deep Is Your Love" I was happy to see the Brothers Gibb come out singing.

    Crystal was robbed, and now how can anyone believe AI is not fixed? For weeks people have been posting comments here, myself included, how the judges have been promoting Lee, the past two weeks making it seem as though they already decided Lee was going to win it. Last night Crystal put a wrench in their plot because she blew Lee out with her great performances and professionalism – Lee can't match any of that. Even Simon had to concede she was outstanding, and the other judges praised her, too. They knew they were wrong in choosing Lee. And yet, Lee wins it. My family voted the entire time last night for Crystal. There is no way Lee won this fair and square – show me the real votes, AI! You never will because you make up your own rules and who will really investigate it? It's b.s. And it has been for a while – just look at David Cook winning, Kris Allen winning – neither was the best singer of their season. I will never go to see Lee perform or buy any song of his. He's boring, uncreative, and I can't stand that white stuff caking around his mouth when he sings. I have already bought Crystal's music and will keep on doing so, because that lady has talent. AI – to hell with you, can't trust a one of you. Glad it's over.

      SO Shannon, why is it Patty seems to think just the opposite?? That the judges were pushing Crystal to win??? Hmm someone is off base here! I'll help you out – it's YOU! There is no fix, no conpsiracy theory, just a lack of votes for Crystal! If they did show you the votes, what difference would that make? None, cause you would still say they faked it! The vote was actually calculated on another site – although unoffcial- showed Lee winning easily! But it's all a fix! Just a big plot to ruin your TV night! Get real, egt over it!

    The margin that Lee "won" by isn't nearly as large as the margin that Crystal BEATS this cookie-cutter boy-band WANNA-BE in PURE and RAW TALENT

  39. Well rats!

    Right–Lee is interesting enough, cute, but he is NOT the artist that Crystal is. These results drive home the point that Idol is all about a popularity contest more than it is about recognizing the best talent. Oh well–silver lining–like tanya said–Crystal will not be under the Idol thumb and she will be fought over for a huge record deal. She is just getting started!

    Meh. Lee seems like a nice enough guy, about as interesting as Keanu Reeves, probably the best out of the male contestants, but Crystal will be around for years to come. Her voice is one in a million.

    Lee won BUT I will bet anyone anything Crystal will have a better selling record and a Grammy before him!!! She was the best of this season, he just got the tween votes after A went home ... although Lee did evolve the most this season. Crystal has always know who she is an artist and she will get a huge record deal not be under the idol thiumb for the next year so to speak and she will SHINE!

    Simon you rock and may your future shine bright. Thanks for being a judge with the hard times and the times of laughter. Guess you've learned quite a bit since starting. I think your torch will be passed to future judges. You've inspired and transpired in a way. Rock on.

    For me, Idol is making sense with having legends on their show. The thing is, if you are a music fan, you will be interested in knowing what kind of music has gone before you which is fitting since these finalists on IDOL are the "future" of music. When you want to be the "FUTURE" you have to know the "PAST" because that way, you will have RESPECT to the art of music because you know how it has evolved. :)

      i think it really sucks. people in az and ca who were watching it on tv knew who won by going on line before the program was done in these states. my days and many others of watching it are over. THANKS

      Joke, right?! Crystal is way more talented... just not from te "right side of the tracks". Total BS profile job – blew that one.

      For the second year in a row, the most talented – and brilliant– contestant came in 2d. Has to be a teenybopper thing because talent had NOTHING to do with who won. I just trust the music world has better sense than those 14 year old late night texters who vote only for guys regardless of whether they have talent or not. I partially blame the judges because they biased this season's result. If it's not about talent anymore, I'm not watching anymore. Guess I'm not watching anymore - but I WILL watch Crystal's career with great interest – and I hope she makes that beautiful single she sang because I will buy it. Next year no one will remember Lee DeWyze.
