Wow, the finale is finally here. It seems like just yesterday I was laughing at the semi-finalists because they were so terrible. And I finished all my finals (yay!), so I have no distractions.

I wish I had added a little video clip at the end of all my recaps. So instead I'll just stick a whole bunch in this post. Just to celebrate the fact that I'm done with finals.

I noticed that Candice is wearing one of Kree's janitor shirts and Kree is looking tons better than she has on the show.

ROUND ONE - Simon Fuller's Choice
Kree the Janitor - "Angel" by Sarah MacLachlan
Sadly, there was no montage of sad-looking animals behind her. Usually Kree's vocals are underwhelming, but I did hear some parts in the beginning where she was giving some effort. I wish she'd have kept that going, but the song never really picked up. The performance was very short, too.
Grade: C-. I saw flashes of an effort, but not enough.

If you've ever seen the movie Big, you know about the giant piano at FAO Schwarz. Well, here's two FAO Schwarz employees playing "Toccata and Fugue in D minor" by Bach on the big piano. Everyone knows the song, but they never seem to know the title.

You can find other songs played on that piano like "Fur Elise", "The Entertainer", "Hungarian Rhapsody", "Heart and Soul", and even the theme from Super Mario.

Furious Face Candice - "Chasing Pavements" by Adele
She had some interesting phrasing, which showed that she was either being creative or she can't count. But other than that, she didn't even oversing that much and was on key for pretty much the whole song.
Grade: B+. She did her job. I knew she would from the second I saw the song spoilers.

When you watch gymnastics outside of the Olympics, you get used to the same-old-same-old, cookie-cutter gymnastics. So when a gymnast has really creative routines, it really sticks out. Here's Ksenia Afanasyeva from Russia at the 2011 Tokyo World Championships. She was initially a reserve athlete for the floor exercise final, but her teammate who had qualified pulled out of the final to give Ksenia a chance to medal. And this routine is absolutely gorgeous.

(She's also the current European Champion on floor exercise. Go Afan!)

I fast-forwarded through Carly Rae Jepsen. Not here for that.

ROUND TWO - Awful Idol Coronation Song
Kree the Janitor - "All Cried Out"
Right away, the first three notes or so were off-key. Kree's vocals are underwhelming again. Her higher notes are awful and flat. She can't seem to stay on key for an entire verse.
Grade: D. An off-key snoozefest.

I've been a huge Lindsey Stirling fan since Elsa Garcia used her "Zelda Medley" at the Olympics. This is probably my favorite Lindsey cover.

Furious Face Candice - "I Am Beautiful"
When I saw the song spoilers and the title of Candice's song, my mind went straight to "Beautiful" by Christina Aguilera. But I was thoroughly relieved that this was an original song, even if it was a cliche coronation song. And I was ready to heave up my lunch when I heard these awful lyrics. Who the fuck wrote this terrible song? Candice sang it fine, but oversang it to all hell. UGHHHHHHHHHH. Apparently she really liked the lyrics. I laughed.
Grade: D+. More pleasant than Kree because she wasn't painfully off-key.

Glee was only good for a few things. One of those things was that it got me into 2Cellos (Grant and Naya's "Smooth Criminal" is still awesome). So when they had Naya sing on their cover of "Supermassive Black Hole", that song was on repeat for two weeks straight.

ROUND THREE - Contestant's Reprise
Kree the Janitor - "Up to the Mountain" by Patty Griffin
Kree actually gave an effort with this performance! I was surprised. Some of her high notes were a little off, but this was by far her best performance of the night. She didn't completely sing the shit out of the song, but she came pretty close.
Grade: C+.

I am very excited for this summer because Whose Line Is it Anyway? is returning to TV! Ryan, Colin, and Wayne are coming back (I bet Brad, Greg, and maybe Chip or Jeff will be coming back, too). Aisha Tyler is hosting instead of Drew Carey (thank God). If you don't know what Whose Line is, here's a clip.

Furious Face Candice - "I (Who Have Nothing)" by Shirley Bassey
Candice started a capella but gave pretty much the same performance as last time, misinterpreting the song to be angry and oversinging it to the point where she actually gave me a headache.
Grade: FAIL. Not the best song to reprise, especially if she interpreted it wrongly again.

Instead of giving a short recap of the finale results, I'm going to recap the whole finale results show.

One last video. Let's end where we started, shall we?

See you tonight.
