I know, I know…with rumors that Kara “Mas Terrible” DioGuardi has written the season 8 American Idol victory anthem, you’re all likely to be denied the next in a long line of horrifyingly schlocky exit numbers. But not to worry! While you chat live about tonight’s telecast in the comments section below — I’ll be back at 9 p.m.-ish with my first impressions, and again tomorrow morning with my full TV Watch recap — I’ve written a little ditty whose title incorporates at least one word from all seven previous A.I. anthems: “A Moment Like This,” “Flying Without Wings,” “Inside Your Heaven,” “I Believe,” “Do I Make You Proud,” “This Is My Now,” and “The Time of My Life.” Without further ado, I present “(This Is) My Time to Believe in the Moment (of Heaven’s Proud Wings).”

The moment has come
Disco week is done
Confetti reigns down
Like the rays of the sun
The moment has come
Right here at the Nokia
Sponsored by Ford
And also by Coke (eee-yeah!)

The moment has come
And Paula is clapping
But what’s up with Simon?
Oh God, is he napping?
The moment has come
The end of the fight
My numbers revealed
Speed dialers unite

An ending so perfect it’s hard to conceive
I lift up my small voice and sing
This is my time, my time to believe
In the moment of heaven’s proud wings

The moment has come
When Randy’s critiques
Get rendered quite moot
No I can’t hear him speak
The moment has come
Cecile Frot-Coutaz
Can’t limit my song choice
To country or jazz

The moment has come
So don’t say I’m pitchy
I’ll hug my 12 rivals
No you can’t say I’m bitchy
The moment has come
I can sing what I mean
As long as it pleases
The folks at 19

An ending so perfect it’s hard to conceive
I lift up my small voice and sing
This is my time, my time to believe
In the moment of heaven’s proud wings
