LOVERS WIN AMERICAN IDOL

DAY 21 of the current Kilauea Volcano eruption and around 50 buildings have been destroyed, but the Puna Geothermal Venture power plant still is untouched and Darryl Clinton is expected to walk someday after being struck by a bowling ball size lava bomb on his leg.  

************************************************

Well, lovers might be an exaggeration, but after Maddie Poppe and Caleb Lee Hutchinson were announced as the top two finalists for this 16th season of American Idol, they let the world know that they have been dating since they met during the competition during the dreaded Hollywood Week.  Almost anti-climactic that Maddie won, but the whole final show was very entertaining, especially the final hour.

Some of the cameo highlights included:

Hawaii was especially featured at the end, with Maddie and Caleb singing Iz Kamakawiwoole's Somewhere Over the Rainbow.  As a special award, Maddie and Caleb were given Hawaiian vacations, with a hint that their parents had to accompany them to Hawaii as chaperones.

I should mention that Ryan Seacrest was moderator and the three judges were Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan.  Katy was special.


American Idol did well, returns next year, and the crew of four will be back.  All 8 Sunday telecasts were the top rated show for the night.
