The best moments of the night were all the previous American Idols singing songs from the Beatles "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band".
Without Belinda Dolittle in the finals, the whole event became a coronation for Jordin Sparks as American Idol. Obviously, baby boomer support was behind her and not "beatboxer" Blake Lewis.
Carrie Underwood is still the biggest star to come out of American Idol and Taylor Hicks is still the Idol that many love to hate.
I think the time has come to throw out the age requirements for Idol and let singers of any genre compete.
