A New American Idol… I Called It… 10 for 10 baby!!!

Spoilers be damned.  That’s right, I told you that Kris Allen was going to be the next American Idol.  I’ve been saying it since last Thursday, but no one would listen to me.  I can’t tell you how many messages, comment and e-mails I’ve gotten telling me that there was no way that Adam was going to lose and how crazy I am.  Idol-Scene-Kris_l

Well you know what, I’m not crazy.  I knew Adam was going home a loser.  Just like I knew Danny was going home last week, Allison the week before, Matt before that, and so on and so on.  As a matter of fact I’ve correctly guessed when every one of the top 10 were going home.  I should move to Vegas.

Look, it’s no surprise that Kris won American Idol.  I honestly was never worried about it.  Here’s why Kris won.

  • The vast majority of Danny voters moved over to Kris after Danny was voted off last week.  Danny and Kris had a similar style and background.  It made sense that if you voted for one of them you would have voted for the other.
  • Politics became involved.  It’s sad that it happened, but all of a sudden this contest became about family values and red state versus blue state.  It was a singing competition to most of us, but for some people out there it was about much more.
  • Kris was just more accessible to most people.  His music wasn’t going to offend anyone, and I just thought it was better all around.  The average American Idol voter was never going to be a Adam fan.  His fan-base was large and fervent, but it wasn’t the average Idol viewer.IDOLFIX_SU_C_^_ARTISTS

So Kris won, and I said he would.  Moving on.  I thought last night’s show was great.  I mean the bands and musicians involved were huge.  KISS, Queen, Lionel Ritchie, Rod Stewart, The Black Eyed Peas, Keith Urban, Cyndi Lauper, and others.  I thought the line-up was very impressive.

I was glad to see Norman Gentle and Tatiana Del Toro show back up, although I could have done norman-gentle-01-2009-02-10without Bikini Girl.

I’m sorry for all those hard-core Adam Lambert fans out there.  I know it’s a sad day, but I did read yesterday that both of them were already promised record deals before the cameras even started rolling last night.  So don’t fret.  Adam will be back to screech and stick his tongue out for you again.

  1. I HATE THAT YOU ARE ALWAYS RIGHT! How did this happen people? I thought Adam had this in the bag….Oh….my heart hurts!

    • There were times that I hated being right about who was going home, BUT NOT ABOUT ADAM!!! Whoo Hoo! Go Kris.

  2. Thank you! I would now go on this blog every day!
