@ShaneAveryYou didn't think I'd give it away that easily did you? Oh fine. After a very long season (thankfully next will be cut down drastically), we finally discovered who America voted for. So was it the rocker Caleb Johnson? Or was it wild card pick Jena Irene? After a hard fought battle last night, Ryan Seacrest named your 2014 American Idol:
CALEB JOHNSON!!!Now, shall we talk about the performances and surprises? What a STAR STUDDED show!!! The show was jam packed with performances including the finalists hitting the stage individually with Paramore (Jena) and legendary rock band KISS (Caleb). But what other surprises did the show include? Sam Woolf opened the show up with season 11 winner Phillip Phillips with the 2 delivering a rousing rendition of his new song "Raging Fire". This was magical as they 2 meshed really well together. Jessica Meuse joined forced with Sugarland lead singer Jennifer Nettles, and the duo gave a killer performance of the Miley Cyrus hit "Wrecking Ball". Malaya Watson delivered an emotional performance of "All of Me" with Grammy winner John Legend, and 3rd place runner-up Alex Preston sang with Jason Mraz!! We even saw some group performances, with the top guys belting out "The Man" alongside Aloe Blacc and the girls performing "Neon Lights" with Demi Lovato! Something we may not have expected to see though, was Ryan Seacrest SINGING. Our longtime host began to belt out "Right Here Waiting For You" and was then joined by legendary singer Richard Marx!! FINALLY, we got one HELL of a great performance from our trio of judges along with mentor Randy Jackson. They all performed "True Colors" and then a rousing rendition of "Go You Own Way". Absolutely killer!!! This has been a STELLAR season everybody, and I can't wait for it to return in January. Thank you all for following along with me! Are you happy with the winner?
