American Idol exec Ryan Seacrest raised a few eyebrows and some laughs when he asked the question, “If you’re at home, how do you vote”.
That kicked off more delight and examination of the popular talent show that has become a global phenomenon.
Viewers in general loved the contestants although there is criticism in the format of the show since Simon Cowell left for greener pastures.
It was a “Motown Night” on the program and singers were belting out classic tunes from the Motor City legendary studio much to the cheers of the audience but not without raising some bites from critics of both the show and of the talent.
On the program contestants Thia Megia, Scotty McCreery, Paul McDonald, and Stefano Langone gave it their best shot at taking on the songs that have become legend.
Hard acts to follow when you try to top Smokey Robinson or Lionel Richie.
The other contestants such as Pia Toscano, James Durbin, Casey Abrams, and Naima Adedapo also got cheers and criticism but that’s just American Idol.
One memorable highlight was when Jacob Lusk followed a suggestion to go into the audience by Ryan Seacrest and hug his grandmother and then Seacrest had the whole first row come up to the stage and give him a hug.*Sponsored Links*
