I don't know. Maybe I was just as cranky as California-Kara when she watched the season finale of Lost, but I thought last night's Idol face-off was Boooooooooooooooring! That's right, with a capital B. While the first two performances by each of the finalists were pleasing (and I'll confess, I was almost moved to feeling an actual emotion, and spat "Sing it white boy! Wrestle that song to the ground!" during Adam's gospel infused rendition of the civil-rights tune, ''A Change Is Gonna Come''. Still timely and politically relevant as ever in these troubling times), I felt hurt and blindsided by that dreadful, No Boundaries, crap that each contestant was forced to sing (badly). That treacly tune, meant to empower and inspire, threw a wet blanket over the whole evening. Yes, I know that almost all the Idol finale songs have sucked (notable exclusions include, I Believe, but that's only because Fantasia turned it into something audible) New judge Kara DioGuardi should be fired, and then cut as she tries to flee the building, for co-writing that drivel. her co-writer, Cathy Dennis, should be forced to give back all the money she made for writing Toxic for Britney Spears, and have it spread equally among the Idol viewing audience. Anyway, I'm still rooting for Adam (he's so much more fun than Kris), but I'll be shocked if he wins because tweens are Idol's most powerful voting bloc and they dig Kris. On the bright side, at least Adam won't have to sing that dreadful, No Boundaries, bullsh*t again.
