Who Won America idol? May 24, 2007

hello!

is the the best entetainer?

or is it the best singer?

Jordin Sparks crowned as ‘American Idol’

The big voice overwhelmed the beatbox Wednesday night as Jordin Sparks was crowned the newest and youngest “American Idol.” Sparks, 17, of Glendale, Ariz., prevailed over beatboxer Blake Lewis, 25, of Bothell, Wash., after a triumphant performance Tuesday that wowed the show’s judges and the viewers who gave her a majority of the record 74 million votes cast.

“Mom, Dad, I love you,” Sparks, the daughter of retired NFL player Phillippi Sparks, said tearfully after a bearhug from Lewis.

The contest came down to either the stronger singer, Sparks, or the better entertainer, Lewis. Sparks delivered her songs simply and powerfully; Lewis’ flourishes included his sound effects and sharp dance moves.

Even the famous were gushing over Sparks

“She is an awesome singer,” finale performer Smokey Robinson said backstage. “She sings so good, it’s hard to believe she’s 17. To sing like that you would have to have lived for a long time. She’s an old soul.”

The finale pulled out the stops and the stars, with Gwen Stefani, Tony Bennett, Bette Midler, Green Day and more singing.

The two-hour show opened with Lewis and Sparks dueting on the Beatles “I Saw Her Standing There,” followed quickly by a touring Stefani singing “4 in the Morning” via satellite from Massachusetts.

Midler took the stage as the show came toward its close, singing “The Wind Beneath My Wings.”

Past “Idol” winners and this season’s contestants got a hefty share of attention, starting with first-season winner Kelly Clarkson. She performed her new single “Never Again,” with the gritty rock song matched by her black dress and thigh-high boots.

Carrie Underwood, the fourth-season idol, sang “I’ll Stand by You” and was honored by legendary music mogul Clive Davis for reaching 6 million in sales for her debut album, “Some Hearts.”

Taylor Hicks, last season’s winner, also had his moment in the finale sun, as did Ruben Studdard, the winner from year two.

Robinson, a Motown great, performed “Being with You” after the top six male contestants, including fan fave Sanjaya Malakar, sang “Ooh Baby Baby,” a hit for Robinson and his group the Miracles

Blake, whose beat-boxing scored with viewers, performed with veteran rapper Doug E. Fresh on his old hit, “The Show.” It was a signature moment for a contest that has introduced young viewers to Gershwin and other standards.

“True originals,” host Ryan Seacrest said of the duo.

Gladys Knight took the stage with the six female finalists, belting out “I Feel a Song” and “Midnight Train to Georgia.” Bennett performed a mellow version of “For Once in My Life” that ended with a big finish.

“A true idol, Tony Bennett, ladies and gentlemen,” Seacrest gushed, with good reason.

Melinda Doolittle, arguably the best “Idol” contestant to miss out on the finale, returned to impress the crowd again as she sang “Hold Up the Line” with gospel stars BeBe and CeCe Winans.

“She has proven in the last few months to be spectacular,” BeBe Winans said backstage of Doolittle.

The show took a serious turn when Green Day performed “A Working Class Hero is Something to Be,” a single from “Instant Karma: The Campaign to Save Darfur,” a fundraising album for the embattled region.

The finale also had its share of filler, including bits such as the “Golden Idols,” an award saluting the oddest of odd auditions, or the worst. The winners included Margaret Fowler, who proudly accepted her trophy and recited poetry after smooching Seacrest.

Hundreds of “American Idol” fans lined Hollywood Boulevard leading up to the theater before the show.

“I’m obsessed with the show. I auditioned for it this past season. I’m just coming out to show my love,” said Sarah Blackmon, 19, who drove more than two hours from San Diego County to attend the finale.

“I don’t like picking favorites. They say it’s a music competition, so Jordin’s going to win,” Blackmon said, but added, “I think Blake’s really hot.”

One of the series’ executive producers, Cecile Frot-Coutaz of FremantleMedia North America Inc., said Tuesday she’d be happy with either contestant as the new idol.

“These are some of the most commercial finalists we’ve had since Carrie Underwood,” Frot-Coutaz said. “Either one will make a great winner for the show and the brand. They both have the potential to sell many records.”

For their final performances, both contestants sang “This Is My Now,” the tune picked by viewers in an online “American Idol” songwriting contest introduced this season, along with two other songs of their choice.

On Tuesday, judges Simon Cowell and Randy Jackson made their choice clear. Diplomatic Paula Abdul kept her counsel as usual, praising both singers. Although the judges didn’t have a say in the decision their opinions have the potential to sway voters.

“You were the best singer tonight. You deserve it all, baby!” Jackson told Sparks

“You just wiped the floor with Blake,” added Cowell, who then told Sparks he was wrong for initially thinking she wasn’t good enough to win the Fox talent show.

Before the finale, Cowell spoke warmly of Doolittle and what wasn’t to be.

“I’m pleased for the two of them,” Cowell said of Sparks and Lewis. “They’re nice kids. But I would have liked to have seen one of them up against the big singer.”

i am so happy tha JORDIN won!

at least, the best still win afterall

America idol finale performance May 23, 2007

hello!

The two “American Idol” finalists took their last turns on stage

The better singer or the better entertainer?

it is a popularity votes afterall and both of them are popular.

but who is more popular?

Blake Lewis, the stylist, and Jordin Sparks, the voice, each performed three songs Tuesday night in front of adoring fans in Hollywood.

Lewis, 25, opened the show with a reprisal of his infectious performance of Bon Jovi’s “You Give Love a Bad Name.” The crowd was delirious, but the judges were less impressed by Lewis’ voice than his performance as a whole.

“Blake, you’re not the best singer in this competition. But you’re the best entertainer I think we’ve had,” judge Simon Cowell said.

Sparks then sang Christina Aguilera’s “Fighter.” Cowell was happy the 17-year-old chose a song that suited her age, even, he noted, if “the vocals were actually a bit shriek-y.”

Round one, the tough judge decided, went to Lewis based on individual performance though.

But Lewis ditched his beatboxing and other performing flourishes in the second act for a straightforward cover of the Maroon 5 hit “She Will Be Loved.” He pleased judges Randy Jackson and Paula Abdul, but Cowell thought he had played it too safe.

 Sparks’ soulful take on Martina McBride’s “Broken Wing.”

“Now, THAT was good,” Cowell said.

Round two went to Jordin Sparks.

In their final turn, both performed “This Is My Now,” the tune picked by viewers in an online “American Idol” songwriting contest introduced this season.

It was clear during Lewis’ performance that the feel-good ballad — sample lyric: “As I look around, I can’t believe the love I see” — was not his style.

“I thought it was all a little odd. … It’s just not a song that you would normally sing,” said Cowell, who suggested that Lewis should be judged on his earlier performances.

Then Sparks took the stage, and owned the song. She teared up as she delivered the last line, “This is my now.” Classic.

“You were the best singer tonight. You deserve it all, baby!” Jackson gushed.

“You just wiped the floor with Blake,” added Cowell, who then told Sparks he was wrong for thinking she was not good enough to win.

“I would say the best individual performance of the night was Blake on the first song,” Cowell said. “But, based on overall singing — Jordin.”

Round three, clearly, was Sparks’.

Whether viewers will validate the split decision will be learned Wednesday night with the crowning of the new American Idol.

Earlier on Tuesday, Cowell told the Associated Press he thought the two remaining contestants were the most evenly matched finalists yet and that either could end up the winner.

The tipping point, Cowell predicted, could come down to the new online-contest song.

Cowell added that his thoughts Tuesday night — and likely those of many viewers — arguably would be with the best “American Idol” contestant yet to miss out on the finale, Melinda Doolittle.

“I can understand why they (Sparks and Lewis) both made it. But I would have happily swapped either of them for Melinda, to be honest with you,” Cowell said.

Despite her artful performances, the one-time backup singer did not get the fan support she needed.

“The fact is she was up against two much, much younger singers and, guessing that most of our voters were younger, my feeling was that she was going to miss out (based) on her personality, not her singing,” Cowell said.

“I’m pleased for the two of them,” he said of Sparks and Lewis. “They’re nice kids. But I would have liked to have seen one of them up against the big singer.”

i reall wished that jordin will win it all for the best singer left standing.

tune in for the results

American Idol Results Shocker – Melinda Doolittle

Melindadoolitte_eliminatedInstead Eliminated of Ryan Seacrest, Homer Simpson did the initial intro for the American Idol top three results show.  After struggling to remember the name of the show, Homer Simpson ended his intro by asking “Hey, is it too late to vote for Fantasia?”  Seacrest evidently concerned that he might lose one of the best gigs in Hollywood was quick to criticize Homer’s timing and did his own “This is American Idol” intro.

During pre-taped segments, the remaining three American Idol finalists visited their hometowns.  Jordin Sparks visited Glendale, Arizona, where an estimated ten thousand turned out to see her.  Blake Lewis visited Seattle, Washington and Bothell, Washington.  Blake sang the national anthem at a Seattle Mariners game.  Melinda Doolittle visited Nashville, Tennessee, where the Governor declared it Melinda Doolittle Day and Belmont University named a street Melinda Doolittle Way.

American Idol 5 finalist Elliott Yamin made a special guest appearance to perform his song “Wait For You.”  Ryan Seacrest said he didn’t recognize Elliott anymore, likely because of his long, curly hair and his bright, white teeth.  Randy Jackson said “Yo’ dude, it was hot.”  Paula Abdul said “I’m speechless I’m so proud of you.”  Simon Cowell said “Not great, I’m kidding, it was great.”      

For the Ford music video, the American Idol finalists performed “Everybody Wants You.”  Special guest Maroon 5 performed a censored version of “Makes Me Wonder.”  After a commercial break, Seacrest revealed that almost sixty million votes were cast and that Jordin Sparks had made it through to the American Idol finale.  In a shocker, Seacrest revealed that it was the end of the road for Melinda Doolittle.  Blake Lewis joined Jordin Sparks in the final two.

hello!

the results are in!

i am correct once again. i guess the shock might be lakisha being eliminated.she was the front runner from the start and last week, she hit new high and gotten a kiss from simon. however, good things do not last, and she stumble this week. resulting in her “premature” elimination.

i expected her to be in the final 3 from the start with jordin and melinda.

i guess america also agree that this 3 girls stood out right from the start.

however, we have blake too. the young cute handsome beatboxer who impressed the judges late in the show.

early in the audition, he was termed cocky. just like taufik. now, he managed to tone it down and focus more on his passion for the songs he sang.

i am hoping melinda make it to the final.i guess next week, jordin might be out. shall see then

=)
