We were not totally surprised, but we also felt that America let us down, or somehow the system did. Idol prevented the first openly gay idol to emerge. Adam clearly won the competition. Even Kris knew it. Adam has more range, more diversity, more power. But he has black fingernails and he wears a guy liner.
What does Kris have? He is humble. He has an honest feel. And he is likeable. But most of all, he isn’t gay.
So when it came down to 100 million votes, Kris won. And we think Danny was better. And we think it showed during the final show’s duets. Danny sang with Lionel Richie and kept up with a genius.
But you know what? We like all three. We want to hear records by all of them. In fact, some of the top 13 could be big talents this year, depending on how they are promoted.
And we will concede that during the season and during the finals, we heard songs from Kris we want to hear again.
So, CONGRATULATIONS KRIS!!! You won, and you know what, it doesn’t really matter why. It is all conjecture. You won because overall, you were the best talent. And we know we will pay to see you in concert, just like we did Daughtry. But we will pay for Danny and Adam too. Shoot, we have to buy a ton of tickets this year.
