Boy, I hoped this would happen but with Idol one never knows. Congrats to DC for pulling an well deserved upset and making Simon LeBrit eat crow on national TV! I loved it! He won this contest on his own terms by remaining true to himself up to the bitter end and for that, he earned my respect and admiration for being a TRUE musician. Now, don’t let Clive and the boys wear you down…

Congrats, too, to Archie for singing his heart out and showing what a true singer is made of. IMHO it was right that he didn’t win because he is a little too young to be put through the music industry grinder and with a voice like his he needs to be nurtured slowly so that we can enjoy his singing for many years to come. And once he turns 18 he can ditch his Dad and be his own musician. Winning Idol would have made any of that much harder, if not impossible.

So let’s raise a glass to the winner and runner up! Thanks for a great season and may you both continue to touch the world with your music!

Carry on!
