So welcome to part 1 of the bizarrely abbreviated finale of the fabulous fourteenth season of Idol. Woo.
Informal survey of reddit comments on Idol being canceled:
2. Oh, that’s still on?
3. Eh, it’s just a break for a few years
Fourth-most was probably ” I stopped watching when Simon left”
Point is, there were a lot of people dancing on the grave. While I’m not quite there, I can certainly understand it.
The producers kind of flailed around trying to fix the show. I wonder, though: why not just move the show back to the summer?
Does Fox have a complete schedule from May to August? Maybe they do now.
Wow, even the guys over at whatnottosing.com say they are relieved the show is ending.
It was weird that a lot of people said the show hadn’t had a major star in years. Phil. Phillips. Hello people.
Poor Idol. It’s not good anymore.
Oh hell, it doesn’t start until 9
Uhhhh yeah bbl
Those kids look miserable.
Jax in particular looks like she knows the odds are not ever in her favor
0.4 points separated Nick and Jax. WGWG will win.
Aaaaaand indeed. Sorry white girl without guitar.
I blame the judges.
So, the real question is, after next year’s nostalgia year, will the show be back in 5 years or so? Plausible.
We definitely haven’t heard Georgia On My Mind enough times
This is pretty killer, though.
JLo’s boobs though
Her dress has a boob window and it is full of boob
Nick is still boring. Meh.
Dull song choice for Clark. It was ok.
Simon Fuller likes shitty music.
I mean, Nick has to know that Clark has the Southern advantage, right?
Nick moving his head like the animatronic Lincoln at Disneyland.
Let’s just take a moment to appreciate how perfect Nick’s hair is
My expectations for these singles is about as low as they could possibly be.
Yay idol songs
Said no one ever
This is just a Fun knockoff song
And Fun should never have happened
I tell ya, that was no “I Love You This Big”.
Is this like a suicide pact anthem?
Less bad than Clark’s.
I decline to handicap which white guy will win.
I didn’t listen to that at all
Nick probably has a better chance of being successful, so I guess he should win.
So Clark will definitely win then
