I'm on vacation

in London, which means I missed the "American Idol" finale - both performance and results. However, I have it DVR'd and may try to post something on it early next week.

Congrats to Kris Allen - possibly the unlikeliest "Idol" winner ever, and yet not really when you look more closely at the trajectory of his victory and of "Idol" history. More on that later.

Hugs and kisses to David Cook for what I've no doubt was a courageous and heartfelt performance last night. Don't know if they mentioned it on the show, but the song he sang was written with his brother in mind, who very recently passed away from brain cancer.

See y'all back stateside!
