The Idol Stage


American Idol was, at one point, the biggest thing in television. Each finale was a massive event. In 2005, Carrie Underwood beat out some dude to become the fourth American Idol, and moved on to one of the most successful post-Idol careers of anyone who appeared on the show.

Your Prompt

Sinestro. Gorilla Grodd. Who will be your American Idol? What will they sing? Remember, they get three songs to sing in the finale: They choose one, the judges choose another, and the their first single! Are you guys excited?

    "Well, that was a great set Sinestro! Vote Sinestro using your phone, text "YELLOW" to 47661, or online at our webiste! Next up is our other finalist, hailing from Gorilla City all the way from Africa, we give you Grodd!"

    Grodd then proceeded to hypnotize the audience and judges with his mighty mental powers, (And bombastic cover of "Wanna Be Like You") thus handily winning American Idol and securing a lucrative recording contract. He's currently touring Europe to promote his new album ALL HAIL GRODD

    Winner: Grodd

    This was it. The American Idol finale. It all came down to Sinestro and Grodd. Strangely, Sinestro couldn't remember Grodd appearing previously in the contest, but he had to have earned that final spot, right?

    Sinestro was first up with Billy Joel's Great Wall of China. He'd sung it before and it killed. This time? Not a peep from the crowd or the judges. Strange.

    It was Sinestro's turn again, but he couldn't actually recall Grodd singing anything. Must be the nerves. "Hold it together," he thought. This time he was singing the judges' choice, Coldplay's Yellow. He inwardly groaned at such an obvious surface level choice. Nonetheless, he gave it his best and, while he'd sung better, he knew he'd done an excellent job. Once again he was greeted by silence. What is this? How dare they ignore him?

    Sinestro was up once again for his final song. This isn't right. Something's wrong. He was positive this time; Grodd hadn't stepped on the stage. "He'll pay after I've won this contest," swore Sinestro. He sang a haunting acoustic version of Fear of the Dark by Iron Maiden. He'd never sung better and knew he'd won.

    Sinestro's triumphant smile faltered slightly when Grodd lumbered onto the stage for the first time that night (it was the first, right?). He couldn't say how, but he knew Grodd was singing something original. The arrogance! Grodd stood there for about a minute before speaking two simple words. Sinestro found himself repeating them along with the audience.

    "Praise Grodd."

    Winner: Grodd

    You know, people talk about how great "Praise Grodd" is, but I prefer his second album "Ow, what the hell Barry, you broke my jaw, ow."

    Really had more of that indie vibe, you know?

    Pfffft, what're you talking about, that was his sellout album. Praise Grodd was a return to his roots.
