Oh my God, where have I been babies?
I know I am a few days late with this, but thought I would give my two cents since everyone else has. I began this season being absolutely let own by all of the performers. I watched the first couple of episodes, realized that no one stood out at all, and thought that would be the end of it.
As most of you know, I was very obsessed involved with American Idol last year, thanks to David Archuleta. This year, however, I never cared when Idol was on, but would watch the result show just to keep up with it.
I did watch the last 4 weeks of the show and say that I think it all went as it should have – except for the final. I’ve been trying to think of why on earth Kris Allen would win American Idol. Then, I realized, it is his boy next door demeanor that America falls in love with. Didn’t he crack when he sang the night before the results show during the ear-bleeding song that Kara wrote!?
I’m not sure why America loves mediocrity and simpleness in their idols, but they really do…and for the second year in a row they’ve voted for the straight edge idol instead of an artist. Remember last year when David Archuleta was everybody’s favorite…until one of the last weeks when David Cook sang a “unique” version of some song (which was actually a cover) and everyone lost their shit. Same thing happened with Adam Lambert. Everyone expected him to win, and then Kris Allen sang “Heartless” and girls and gay guys everywhere shat their skirts!!! Kris is the all-American, Christian, husband with a guitar and America ate that up!
Adam Lambert is the most eccentric, talented, and marketable idol that this show has ever had, and will probably ever have in a long time. It’ll be hilarious when for the SECOND YEAR IN A ROW, the runner up will have a more successful career than the winner.
