I didn't watch American Idol too much this season, but I wanted to see the winner announced anyway.
It was on my friends DVR — we were watching the end of the Red Sox—then flipped over to the DVR to watch Idol on delay.
(ADD MOMENT: Carrie Underwood!!!!!!!)
Anyway, here's the announcement of the winner as I saw it—and I would think everyone with Time Warner Cable watching on Tivo in Manhattan saw it as well.
Since Idol went over on time, the DVR pops up that message at the end of the recorded video. Meaning, we didn't see the last name.
(ADD MOMENT: Speaking of Last Name—that was the name of the song Carrie Underwood sang. CARRIE UNDERWOOD!!!!!)
The video gets cut off in between the first and last name, in a competition where both people have the same first name. What are the odds?? While this is a horrible job by Fox and Idol—I will forgive them. Why? Carrie Underwood. CARRIE UNDERWOOD!!!!
(ADD MOMENT: My new column in Fusion is about the 3 best celebrities in existence. Judging by this blog, guess who is number 1?)
