In a major upset Kris Allen beats Adam Lambert for the American Idol champ. The show was so much better this year. Lionel Ritchie, Cyndie Lauper et all gave it an 80’s feel. Adam with Kiss. Lil Rounends with the Queen, an Queen with Kris and Adam. Rod Stewart seemed to have lost a step. I am worried about him. The Top 13 were great. Norman and Bikini Girl’s return were great. Cooke was solid. I had no rooting interest. I picked Adam from the top 26 or so. At the end it was either America is a bit homophobic, or Danny’s fans (third place) were closer to Kris’ style than Adams.
Great season. Terrific finale. I love the twist ending. Time well spent.
