So unless you’re living under a rock, you might have come across the Idol Finale last Thursday or the breaking news of the crowned winner. Whichever way, I knew I just had to voice out my opinion – more like violent reaction. So, here’s how it went. Kris Allen won and I’m straight. Kidding. It just ain’t right you know? It didn’t feel right. I didn’t even bother to catch it myself. For the first time, I didn’t care having heard of who won before I even get to watch it. I just caught glimpses of the show towards the big reveal. I think it’s the first time for me personally, that I really felt disappointed. Cause I have had bets before that didn’t win but that was just fine for me because the other finalist was equally great. But this one… this one is different because it boils down to the question on why the people voted for the lesser talent. I’m sorry for those who think otherwise but it’s true. Kris knew it himself; I mean he was called the ‘underdog’ and it did felt like Adam Lambert was robbed of the title. I’m sure Kris could be a really nice guy, down-to-earth, humble but it’s not American Good Guy. The show is American Idol, created to find the best undiscovered talent. I’m starting to feel the show is becoming hugely subjective more than objective. I don’t know if I’m ever going to feel the same about the show.
You know what I think? Say what you want or even think that I’m taking this way seriously than others but Adam lost because he’s gay. Bottomline, people don’t want a ‘gay idol’. Did you know that a population in the vote – the conservative demographic, which actually voted for Kris or even encouraged voting for Kris not because they like him but rather because they don’t like Adam for what he is or for that matter, scared of what he stands for and the implications it will convey if he should win such a coveted title. I mean I’m talking about people who don’t even watch the show. So what does he stand for, you ask? He stands for change. Adam Lambert doesn’t blend in the crowd, he stands out from it. He defies the conventional, shatters the norm and ultimately, stayed true to himself. I say this and I quote from Paula: there are only a few those who dared to walk in the path of greatness: Mick Jagger, Steven Tyler and Adam Lambert. This season claims that there are ‘No Boundaries’ but I beg to differ. Once again, America turned its back against innovation. This is bigger than the show. I’m not blaming Kris for anything because he just took what he was given. After all said, it’s just really sad that he got caught up in this and the victim had to be Adam. Remembering the show, I just feel a soft spot for that teary-eyed Adam side by side with his closest co-finalist, Allison.
Wrapping this up, we’ll just see how this turns out because it is after Idol that we find out the true markings of a star. And without any hint of sarcasm and I say this honestly I really wish both the best of luck, Kris Allen deserves a chance and he earned it. As for Adam, he’s a rock star and I’m sure he’s gonna do great things in the world of music and entertainment.
