American Idol – Season Finale

Last night, Lee was announced the winner of this year’s “American Idol.” I felt Crystal outperformed Lee on Tuesday night, but Lee does have a more-commercial sound that could heard on modern rock and hit radio stations. I’m a fan of both singers and I have a strong feeling they will have successful careers.

A majority of the show included tributes to Simon Cowell, since he is leaving “American Idol.” Some of the highlights from last night’s finale include a group performance with Alice Cooper, Bret Michaels singing after his recent health problems, Crystal singing with Alanis Morissette, Lee and Crystal singing together with Joe Cocker, and Janet Jackson performing. The strangest moments of the finale included Dane Cook’s tribute to Simon being interrupted by a former contestant, and General Larry Plats singing his “Pants On The Ground” song with William Hung. Thankfully, there wasn’t a fake award ceremony this year.

What happens if you wear oversized pants without a belt? Your pants will fall down.

General Larry Platt wrote a song about the popular trend. Even though Platt was too old to compete in the singing contest, the 62 year old musician was allowed to appear on “American Idol” this season to sing “Pants On The Ground.” Instantly, the song about looking like a fool became a hit.

“Pants On The Ground” has been remixed by several different artists and uploaded to YouTube. Jimmy Fallon performed the song as Neil Young. Jimmy Fallon performed the song with American Idol judge Randy Jackson. After defeating the Dallas Cowboys in the playoffs, Brett Farve celebrated with a “Pants On The Ground” chant. Who’s next?
