American I-don't-think-so


I'm irritated. In fact it's safe to say I'm massively pissssssssssssed.

Yes, I'm a disgruntled "American Idol" expatriate. Please please don't tell me that the forgettable Kris Allen is more star-like than the amazing Adam Lambert.

Eh. Whatever. I guess I need to move on.

But first, of course, I had to express my displeasure to the Roo-girl.

Grrrrrrr, I said.

"Oh, Mom," she said, with that trademark 2-months-from-15 eyeroll, "have you ever closed your eyes and just listened to Adam?"

I smiled, loving that my daughter truly was about the music and not about superficial things like a pretty face.

"Seriously," she said, "some of those notes -- only DOGS can hear them!!!!!"

Darn. Shot down again.

Did you not know - the music belongs to THEM. We are just along for the ride. So they KNOW - and we don't. 'WE' being anyone physically or emotionally older than 30.

I'm delighted to hear she was listening and not buying into the image. Honestly I couldn't vote either way but it's a relief to know the next generation is going to be about the music. (Hugs)Indigo

Perhaps she thinks his face is prettier than Adam's! Ha ha... Seriously, your Roo-girl is a gift!

Beckie said...

I hate to say it....I agree with Roo-girl. sorry.

I will say that Adam is a lot more fun to watch.

Have a good weekend!

Love her comment there.

I stopped watching American Idol because once a singer kept singing off-pitch and sounded horrible to me - and the judges just RAVED her - even Simon. That was the last straw.

I think its fixed.

I kind of knew Kris would win. the show's appeal is to the middle ground, not to the flamboyant.Adam will have a great career regardless.

I didn't watch it enough to know much. But, I always turned when I heard Adam. I don't know if it has anything to do with my dog ears, tho. heh heh. woof

IMO the top 3 should have been Adam Danny and Alison, then America could not have gone wrong. I don't get what is so great about Kris. I think he is super whiny when he sings and it annoys the crap outta me! I was never a fan of Adam, and the repetitive 80's hair band wail annoyed the crap outta me as well but he was a musical genius. I am glad that Adam does not have to taint his first album with the AI fluff song, and that he will be able to have full artistic control over it. I firmly believe that Adams first album will go platinum before Kris' will.

Roo has a point.

Momo Fali said...

I'm the opposite. When I closed my eyes, I could bear Adam. It was watching him scream with that consipated face that I couldn't take.

I hate to say it, but I have to agree with Lou. It does belong to them these days.
