Vampire to Wed Idol: Nikki Reed (Taurus) and Paul McDonald (Virgo) Engaged
Tonight is the “American Idol” season finale, when “America will decide” whether to crown Libra crooner Scotty McCreery (the crush fodder of tween girls nationwide) or sweet Scorpio siren Lauren Alaina (their personal Disney princess). It’s a tight race, as Jennifer Lopez put it. And although we’re kind of sad that we’re not watching a showdown between Virgo Haley Reinhart and Capricorn James Durbin, we understand that we are 38 years old and didn’t have time to cast multiple votes by email, which would have ensured the soulful, pyrotechnic-filled finale of our dreams.
Last night on “Idol” (yes, we’re still hooked, even at Season 10), contestants performed songs recorded the year they were born, and most of their birthdates were announced. This delighted us, of course, since we were able to discover their zodiac signs so early in the season!
Bye-bye, Simon; hello ... Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler? We admit, we’ve been skeptical about “American Idol’s” survival without Cowell and his scowl. But after watching the first round of auditions, we’ve gotta admit, we like Randy’s new “dawgs.” Sure, they’re not calling people out or crushing dreams like Simon — at least, not yet. But J.Lo and Steven Tyler’s warmth and heartfelt supportiveness feels (to us) like a positive switch.
