…Coming up, after a 127-minute (?!?!?!) mega whopper live finale event! (Update: Annie’s recap is live.) I’ll update this post as soon as we know whether Lauren Alaina or Scotty McCreery has won the season 10 American Idol crown. In the meantime, discuss the results show here.

Over 60 percent of PopWatch voters thought Scotty will and should win tonight. I think they’re right. Whatever, judges! UPDATE: The winner is….

American Idol‘s season 10 winner is Scotty McCreery.

Look for my recap in the middle of the night. No, sleep! You should sleep.

And if you feel like asking me a question about life, TV, and the pursuit of crappiness — I know all about it! — do so below in this new VYou video module we’re trying out. (I may not answer questions until the wee hours of the morning or tomorrow afternoon, and I apologize in advance for not being able to answer them all.)
