We’re not sure if we’re sad or relieved about tonight’s American Idol finale. On the one hand, we (and almost everyone else) have been moaning and groaning for the better part of four months that the contestant pool — with the exception of the amazing Crystal Bowersox — has been seriously lacking. But, on the other hand, this is the last night we’ll ever see Simon Cowell on Idol‘s stage (and probably the last season of the show we’ll watch in its entirety).
So, to celebrate the finale (and Simon’s swan song), our Idol fanatics Brian Underwood and Lauren Marsh will be live blogging the entire two-hour episode. Tune in with us here beginning at 8 p.m. EST and tell us what you think in the comments.
Update: And the winner is Lee DeWyze. Ew.
