So it has happened. They call it upset for a reason, lots of Glamberts fans are extremely upset. I, on the other hand, am also a bit upset but felt that Kris Allen could win since he managed to boot out Danny Gokey. I said I wish his Gokey’s fans wouldn’t shift to Kris but apparently majority of those that chose to continue voting did. Not surprising considering that Adam is so different and Kris and Danny had the same appeal, clean, nice, laid back good sound.
I do have to hand it to Kris Allen though because though I still think Adam Lambert can outsing him anytime of the day he does deserve all those votes (I think Adam deserves more though…shame on those who didn’t bother to pick up their phones and vote!!!) with his awesome performance during the singing duel. He did so much better than I expected reinforcing it to those who were still on the fence that he is also Idol material. I even had to agree with Simon when he said after round one that Kris Allen proved he deserved to be on the top two. I guess America decided that he deserved not only that but the number one spot as well. Oh well.
As for Glamberts do not feel sad you might have lost the battle in American Idol the great ones, whether they won in the finale or not, manages to come out as winners. Only time will tell whose career makes them worthy of title American Idol, and I’m guessing that unless Adam decides to go back full time to theater we have a huge idol on the way.
