After that video they just played about those few families in Africa, I'm crying my eyes out. That is unspeakably horrible.

I am really glad that they are using the huge ratings this show has to benefit these causes. Surprised that they did not think of this long ago!

Yeah, I was on the elliptical in the gym...I probably looked very odd to the people that were not watching the TVs. I was trying so hard not to cry, but when they showed that really sick woman being loaded into the truck...oh man. :'(

Tonight makes me forgive the AI producers for making practically the entire season one big commercial.

Just knowing Josh is going to sing that song, makes me well up right now.
That's my song for my Grandpa....

This is one AI I might just watch.

Yes, people can say a lot about hating Idol or reality tv or whatever, but I give the Idol producers HUGE props for using these votes for a good purpose. It's sad that this is what it takes to raise money for these people and organizations, but if this is what's necessary- rock on.

And I agree- that video with loading the woman into the truck. Then when Ryan said she died 2 days later. I lost it. :'(

I cried like a baby.

I thought that was SO well done. Up to, and including, the "shocking finale." Any word yet as to how much $$ was collected?

I heard 30 million and counting.

I haven't watched it yet. It's on my Tivo- But I saw the Celine Dion duet and am still shocked. LOL

I am so glad that not only did they help those children in Africa but also all the people they are going to help in the states...I went to Africa 7 years ago and it is so sad to see the lack of school and medicial care that is avalible...being a techer it breaks my heart that many of them can't read I lost it when they said they found that little baby 50 miles away and tried to get him help in time but he died on the way...ahhh...I am a man and not afraid to admit that I cried like a 2 year old...
