OK, I'll start it. Yeah, it's offtopic as can be, but ain't you proud of Kelly on American Idol? I kept meaning to watch the show, but never did until Tuesday night. Turns out that Kelly really is as good as they say she is, and even better.
Justin was pretty good too, but it sounded like his voice was more stressed. And he's just not as good either -- she's fantastic.
I encourage you to check out the Surrender clip from the official site, http://idolonfox.msn.com/home.htm>here. It's apparently a Celine Dion song, I assume from her most recent album, which I haven't heard. Awesome song, and even with obviously tremendous strain in her voice, Kelly sung it fabulously.
Looking forward to how well the release of her single goes on September 17th.
This show had a real opportunity to yield completely crappy talent, considering the American Public voted, and I'm immensely proud that the winner is somebody who is not only incredibly talented, but who also seems to be a very nice person.
