My older kids like it though, and watch it at their mom's house. So when I wouldn't let my 11 year old watch the finale last night (too late for a school night - yeah I am a prick), I got the silent treatment all morning. I guess I forgot that when all the kids are talking abut something at school and you missed it, that makes you LAME.
I felt even worse when I found out that KISS made a surprise appearance. Had I been monitoring my bookmarked sites, Twitter etc, I may have seen the rumors yesterday. But hey, work sometimes takes priority over surfing the Internet.
I took Alex to see KISS when he was six, so it's not like he's never seen them. But I remember the baby boners I got when I was a kid and KISS graced the TV screen. I wonder, actually, how many people were introduced to KISS for the first time last night? American Idol has a pretty large and rabid fan base of viewers but I would not image the younger ones were aware of KISS.
Anyway, here it is. I guess the kid singing with them didn't win, but he sure sports the boots well, as well as a screech worthy of Rock Star's Izzy Cole.
