Idol: Is America a Dumb B****?

Prepare for waves of homophobia claims. Be on the lookout for Perez Hilton (or, I hope, a humorous Perez Hilton YouTube spoof). It will be the talk of the office. “OMG! Adam didn’t win!”
Let me cut to the chase. Adam is a one-trick vocalist. He also needs to mature as a vocalist. Save the screeching for the right time, don’t pull it out on every friggin’ song. Musicians, and most people that appreciate music recognized that Danny Golkey was the best singer in the competition. When he got voted out last week I predicted a backlash. The combination of Danny fans voting against Adam, plus the apathetic drama crowd that assumed that Adam would win made for this result.
Kris is not a worthy AI champion. Honestly, he didn’t even deserve to be in the top five. In my educated opinion Danny should have won. Allison should have been runner-up, Adam third, Jorge fourth and any of a handful of the other signers could have been fifth (probably Matt). Remember, this is supposed to be a singing competition. How many times did Simon and Randy tell us that?
Allison will get a great record contract and be a star. Danny will make a great album, I hope Clive Davis picks him up. Adam will lay low until after the Idol tour and then let loose with a flamboyant show of some sort. He is destined for Vegas, or a Rock Opera on Broadway. Is Guns & Roses looking to tour again? Let Axel and his attitude stay at home and have Adam take his place. I’m a little miffed that we didn’t get to hear Adam sing “Sweet Child O’ Mine.” Kris, dude… enjoy the ride. You are going to live the rock and roll dream for the next year and then fade away into the where are they now CD bin. Honestly, I’d love just one tune, a single single, to make it big like your music will. Enjoy this ride, you seem to have a great head on your shoulders and good parents to thank for that. You’ve done well, you flew under the radar and played your hand perfectly. Kudos. Seriously. Make the most of this.
To Perez: honey, don’t get your panties in a wad. This isn’t about America hating an over the top gay singer. It’s about hating a singing competition that was selling out to flash over substance. You should be used to it, Perez, you voted for Obama, right? You know what I’m talking about.
