The McWeavers Go Mainstream

Although it has been over for a couple weeks, it is worth admitting that the McWeaver household watched this last season of American Idol. It was widely reported that it would be Simon Cowell’s last season as a judge so we figured it would be a good one to catch before the show changes. Our thoughts after watching a whole season?

  • The show will not be the same without Simon, he really knows what he’s talking about and isn’t afraid to be honest
  • Ellen is really cool. Maybe not a terrific judge, but a really, really cool chick.
  • It’s easy to see the shows appeal after watching week after week and you get to know the contestants
  • We enjoyed one season and don’t need to see another one ever again

Our two favorites from early on, Lee and Crystal, were the finalists which pleased us, though we felt like after the finale that Crystal should have won. Here are the two of them in one of the better performances of the season with a song we love:



  1. Good recap — I couldn’t agree more on all counts. Though, I may have to admit that I might enjoy this version of ‘Falling Slowly’ more than the original! Sacrelige, I know!
