Set an Email Reminder for American Idol
Start Time: May 16, 2013 08:00PM (Eastern)
Do not try and use any of your logic on us. Yes, it is absolutely true that heading into tonight's episode of "American Idol" there are only two contestants left and that all the votes will have been tabulated, but that's no reason that they can't find 120 extra minutes to pad things out (we're assuming a one minute announcement of the winner followed by a six minute ovation and song). Surely you want to see a few more in-show commercials and give a few final teary farewells to already eliminated contestants and hear a famous person or two sing and ponder which judges won't be asked back for season 13. The season of "Idol" ends tonight, and it's going to be one long finale.
