So, if we were sitting across from each other at a diner (you with your yummy, greasy hashbrowns and me with a slice of melon and toast), the first thing I would bring up is American Idol.
Maybe that Austin Powers influence worked on you.
Congratulations to Kris. He deserves this. Adam is very talented, but to be truthful in chatting with friends, family, and strangers at the salon these past few weeks, none of them preferred Adam.
Yet, Adam nation is crying foul because he was such a favorite. Why was he the top dog?
The judges loved him. They're always looking for new and original, and Adam is unlike any previous Idol winners for sure.
And, Idol is filmed in California, which basically gives Adam home-court advantage.
Another point to consider is this is America. We have a soft spot for the underdog.
The bottom line is Kris won. Maybe some people used computers to facilitate that. Maybe some people voted because of his religious values.
Or maybe some people like me were up until 1 a.m. doing random tasks, carrying around a cell phone hitting end/send, end/send, end/send.
Kris won. Adam will still have a career. Congrats to both of them. Moving on...
