Several weeks ago, I went on strike from blogging about American Idol–no longer. I must speak out.
First, let me say that I want Kris to win for a few simple reasons:
- He’s what I’m looking for in an idol. Average Joe gets his big shot on the big stage.
- He seems sincere and sweet. Whether or not he gets an inflated ego later, I don’t care. But, for now, he’s a total peach.
- He has a cool swagger style, and I’d actually want to go see him in concert/buy his CD. He’s not just a sideshow act from the circus.
That being said, I really wonder if he watches Taking The Stage on MTV. Originally, I thought I was the only one watching that show–because I still hope to one day wake up a prodigy in some creative art–but, his song choice is suspiciously close to Mia Corruther’s.
Now, onto Adam.
Oh, Adam, Adam, Adam. What a tumultuous relationship we’ve had. I wish I could say things are different but you know what…it’s not me, it’s you. I get it, you can scream-sing. What else can you do? Your ego fills the stage, which makes me think that Hollywood isn’t for you. You’re more of a Vegas-Celine-Cher-esque singer. So get that big stage-show together, and get off American Idol already.
Gokey *sigh*. This is one relationship that’s really gone 180 for the worst. I loved this guy (and his glasses frames) the first few weeks. But after the whole “aw shucks” schtick got old, my love faded and I began to see him as a future elevator singer. Now, let’s talk about his performance tonight:
PAULA THREW HIM UNDER THE BUS! What was that song? I mean, of course he jumped around and danced desperately, what else could the guy do. Kris gets the number one most overplayed song on the radio, and he gets a song that most of the girls in the American Idol audience have never even heard of.
