Kris Allen Wins American Idol

The finale of American Idol last night was like the Grand Old Opry for Rock Stars. It's as if the producers just have to make the show bigger and bigger every year! At least this time it was filled with genuinely good music-making instead of countless boring clips and fluff. Fergie and the Black Eyed Peas were there, Rod Stewart, Lionel Richie, KISS, Keith Urban, Queen (which, is it really Queen without Freddie Mercury?) and even Queen Latifah. We got to see all of the top 13, and let me tell you, it was all too obvious that some of them simply don't have the chops to have made it that far. Like the little black girl, not lil' but the other one. What's her name anyway? She couldn't sing for shit last night. She looked cute, but damn, how did she make the top 13?

Anyway, when it was all said and done, the point of the show was to crown this season's American Idol. I've said it before and I'll say it again, this was not the best season ever. It was kind of a disappointment really. And last night was no exception. When Ryan announced that this season's winner is Kris Allen, my jaw almost dropped to the floor. What?? Seriously?? Don't get me wrong, the guy is talented. He's definitely good looking and likable and a great singer, but Adam was the one I was expecting to win it all. Even Kris was speechless. When Ryan asked him how he felt, Kris said, "I don't even know. Adam deserves this. I don't even know." I think he was completely in shock. He showed up to the finale glad to have made it and happy to watch Adam take home the title. Either way, they'll both have record deals.

All I'm hoping for is a better season come January. And I must say, I'm looking forward to tonight's season premiere of "So You Think You Can Dance." Singing, I can do. Dancing? No fucking way. I just sit in awe of these people. If you've never watched the show before, give it a try. It's fun to watch. Besides, all of my other favorite reality shows are over. I need something to carry me through the summer!
