What if they held an American Idol finale and nobody cared?
Well, okay, what if I didn't care?

Am I a bad person for being completely uninterested in Jordin Sparks, her career prospects, her very existence? No offense to the young woman, who has a definite talent, but I really didn't notice her even one time over the course of the season. I can't remember a single performance she gave, and I certainly never expected to see her in the finals. I guess I really am getting older, because I really just don't get it. I get that she's Nickelodeon friendly, has a future doing cartoon movie soundtracks, and that she's really, really, super duper happy. That I get. But thankfully, I'm also totally over "American Idol." Thank you God for my Tuesday nights back.

And I'm sure we'll be seeing much more of some of these characters. Phil has a great voice and a future in country music. Lakeisha is the bomb, and probably should head for Broadway. Blake is probably already signed. Chris -- Bad Boy or Jive, here he comes (one album, max). And it goes without saying that Melinda has Gladys Night potential.

Other than that, the first season I've watched all the way through since season one, will be my last addictive one.
