Hey everyone...I'm at the Acuff Theater in Nashville right now, at the Nashville Star live taping, so I won't be able to blog in detail about the N-Star finale until later tonight. But here's the one piece of vital info you need to know right now, just announced:

MELISSA LAWSON IS YOUR NEW NASHVILLE STAR!

Yes, the thirtysomething Texas mother of five, who at one time assumed it was too late for her to launch a country career, has just won a record contract with Warner Bros. and a slot singing at the 2008 Olympics. It's such a heartwarming story, I imagine The Melissa Lawson Story made-for-TV biopic is already in pre-production over at the Lifetime Network.

Melissa's a major undiscovered talent, so I think America got it right this time. The mood here in the Acuff is positively jubilant. So thanks for rocking the vote, N-Star fans!

Come back later for a full report on my backstage finale experience, but feel free to start posting your comments about the season 6 outcome now, and let me know if you agree that the right singer won.
