Holy Moley Guacamole! That was an unexpected end to the season. The Official AI Boards are livid that Adam lost and attributing it to homophobia and hate voters. All of which is, in my opinion, very rancid grapes and completely unfounded.
I know Adam has legions of fans. I really expected he would win until I saw the Dial Idol polls last night showing Kris with a slight edge and then I thought maybe Kris could pull it off. Here is what I think happened. Kris grew on people slowly. Adam was *out there* all season long and basically didn't *evolve* (arguably no place to evolve to) and people just weren't surprised by him anymore. When Gokey proved to be a one trick pony (breathless songs about losing the love of his life) and fans got bored with him they quit voting for him. Adam, strange as it sounds, got a little boring toward the end. That and the incessant pimping of Adam by all the judges and blatantly by Simon put a lot of viewers off. And America loves an underdog. Plain and simple.
With the exception of the Black Eyed Peas boom boom song I really enjoyed the entertainment. I would have liked to see more of Scott, Anoop, and Matt. Loved both Adams duet with Kiss and Kris's with Keith Urban. I like that Jason Mraz guy. I have never heard of him before. He had a big smile on his face after Kris won. I thought Megan, Michael Sarver, and Steve Martin were sweet. Rod Stewart should not have appeared in public and simply sung from back stage because he sounded a lot better than he looked poor old tubby man (in checks?). Allison and Cyndi Lauper. So good. Allison was so in awe of her and I was thrilled Allison got that showcase and that opportunity.
But, I cannot leave out Kara. You know, I was just sick when they brought bikini girl back with her newly enhanced chest ornaments and I thought dear lord, are they going to let her sing a whole song when I would rather have heard a song from one of the contestants who DID make it to the top 13. And then Kara came out and really DID show that bimbo a thing or two about singing and basically made bikini girl invisible. And foolish. I don't know about the flashing scene at the end but Kara does have a good body. She said she agreed to do it because they donated money to her charity so, its ok I guess. And realy, poor Kara, after the beating she is taking for that SONG today nearly everywhere (even Nigel Lythgoe said he hated it) she needed a pick me up!
Oh...also cannot forget that they let Danny Gokey have David Cook's song, Hello, and sing WAY too much for my taste. I dearly hope I never see his moon man face again.
Anyway everyone, thanks for taking the time to read all of our comments this season. Now I'm left with So You Think You Can Dance and Mary who screams a lot but in a good way. I cannot remember Mary's last name but she is adorable.
