Now that Lee DeWyze has won this season of American Idol, we can all listen at our own risk to his cover of U2’s “Beautiful Day.” I personally imagine it to be the soundtrack to my own personal Hell–the one where it plays on infinite loop over an endless montage of inspirational moments from sports movies–because I hate sports movies (that are not A League of Their Own, DUH) almost as much as I love U2. But I digress.
Here’s a video of someone’s mom reacting to last night’s American Idol finale:
You may think this is some middle-aged woman throwing a histrionic shit fit over a past-its-prime and ultimately inconsequential competitive singing reality show, but you’re wrong. This woman knows exactly what I’m talking about.
Much love to Vulture for this one.
