I watched the entire extravaganza on Thursday night. There is really no other word to describe it. The two hour show with all the top 12 in was just incredible. Seriously incredible. Check out this YouTube link. Imagine being in the top 12 and getting to sing with The Bee Gees, Bret Michaels, Hall & Oates, Joe Cocker, Christina Aguilera or Alanis Morrisette... how frickin cool is that? Even the tribute to Simon Cowell with all the former Idols and finalists was awesome. I was starting to feel emotional by the end of it!
But as always, once I finally decide which finalist I want to win, the other one gets it. Bugger it all! Granted, the two of them were both great, but I truly think that Crystal was amazing... a complete individual, not afraid to be different, with a fantastic voice and a beautiful soul. I am sure we will see more of her in the future. Seriously, how can you listen to this and not get goosebumps? Un-frickin-believable. So, so talented.
Think I might go and check out iTunes for that Crystal track...
