    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (5)

      • Simon and Randy both thought Kelly would win and Paula stayed neutral.

      • There were no video montages played before any of the songs, usually one plays before the first one.

      • Instead of the contestants going and sitting by the hosts after their song, they came to center stage (the exception was after Justin's last performance), which Ryan does in the newer seasons.

      • Will Young, who won Pop Idol, sang "I Get the Sweetest Feeling" by Jackie Wilson which he sang during the competition during the Top 3 week as the Judges' Choice.

      • The judges sat up in a special box, instead of right in front of the stage as usual. They also did not critique each performance, instead at the end they gave their overall impression of the two contestants

    • NOTES (2)

      • Each contestant sang three songs. The first and third are both Originals, written for them, one which is the "Winner's Song", and the second song is their favorite performance from the competition. The songs sung tonight were:
        Justin Guarini - "Before Your Love" (Original)
        Kelly Clarkson-- "A Moment Like This" (Original)
        Justin Guarini "Get Here" by Oleta Adams
        Kelly Clarkson-"Respect" by Aretha Franklin 
        Justin Guarini-"A Moment Like This" (Original)
        Kelly Clarkson-"Before Your Love" (Original)


        *This is the first time ever that contestants sang three songs in one night.

      • In order to find out who goes first they flip a coin. Kelly won and chose to go second.
