He Ain't Heavy He's My Idol  
This is it. After what has felt like an eternity we are finally at the Opera House, in what is quite possibly the closest contest between not very good but very genuine Luke and the much more talented but very smarmy Wes.

The show opens with a very Rock Estedford? (it's Welsh don't ask me to spell it) group performance of Can You Feel It and the performance reminded me what a rubbish year it has been with only two truly great singers have been discovered and neither of them are the final two, but whatever.

Wes and Luke's final two duet is Times Like These by the Foo Fighters and it is quite good but I'm bias as Foo Fighters are my first love. They sound really good together maybe they could get together as a duo like Wham! That would be awesome.

Mark is back doing his mega bitchin' Sex Is On Fire which has me really REALLY hoping that the actual Kings Of Leon come out to do a really awesome duet. Holy crap that would be so effin' sweet.

The men of the final 12 do a group performance of Stevie Wonder classic Higher Ground and it really shows that the only use for Tom, Thanh, Teale, and Jonny is as back-up singers.

The ladies of the top 12 are doing I'm Every Woman, and the fact that Chrislyn isn't the winner is unbelievable but alas it was not to be. When they sing individually they are quite good but as a group they just sound like a group of pissed chicks who can sing alright doing karaoke.

Shane Nicholson and Casey Chambers are really great having never and I mean NEVER have been a fan of Casey Chambers often saying that she had the most annoying voice in all music but her husband Shane really tempers her whiny voice, plus I absolutely LOVE the style (I have never met a banjo I didn't like). It's great to see them getting this kind of attention. With Luke and Wes singing with them they should all just play in a band together because that was awesome and would be a million times better than what ether of them will do solo.

The second final 12 performance of Viva La Vida, I won't go into how overrated I think Coldplay are
but the performance was the best of the year with the aid of some strings and fireworks made for a kick arse performance.

Wes is reprising his best performance, Black Or White, he is wearing a silver leather jacket which I am seriously jealous of. With performances like this it is easy to see why Wes is in the top two.

Luke is reprising one of his more forgettable performances of Feelin' Alright, I am disappointed to see that he is not doing the Joe Cocker dance moves as seen here in one of John Belushi's finest and funniest impersonations:

With all that being said the performance was pretty good.

And Wes is the Idol. I hope after his sucky debut album he will have a Ryan Adams style like in his admittedly great auditions sans all the drugs and being a mega douche.

Good Luck to all the contestants hopefully some of them not in music.
