Aww. Another Paula Abdul video tribute to Simon Cowell. Will she show up on stage? I hope so.
Paula is in the house! She gets a standing ovation. "I really miss everyone," she says. Awkward. Paula jokes about having Simon's child. "American Idol's not going to be the same without you. But as only I can tell you, it will go on," she says.
We get a final video montage set to "My Way." OMG. I am sobbing right now. Just kidding. If Simon wasn't leaving, how would they have filled this show?
Kelly Clarkson on stage. Ruben Studdard! Fantasia! Carrie! Jordin! Taylor! Kris! Where's David Cook? MIA. They sing "Together We Are One." Whoa! We get a whole choir of "Idol" finalists. It's like a twisted version of "We Are the World."
Simon comes on stage and thanks everyone for their support. "The truth is, you guys are the judge of this show," he says.
