Adam or Kris?
Kris or Adam?
Idol's been running a Twitter tally all day.
They predict Adam as American Idol 2009.
Depends who you talk to, depends what column you read.
I raced home from the city tonight to catch the late night edition of the show, so even though the rest of the world knows who won tonight...I don't!
And, I'm not gonna cheat and look online.
So, here it is.
Random thoughts and impressions, late at night after a 3 hour drive home to see this...
624,000,000 total votes for the season.
That's the most ever.
This is a great show for me, overflowing with excellent talent this year.
I had a hard time picking out my top 10. I started with 19 and then whittled it down from there.
Of course, my top 10 didn't match American Idol Top 10, quelle surprise!
Here are a few of my favorite finale moments.
Is this Katy Holmes Cruise and perhaps...Suri? This is a little shot from last night's semi-final...
David Cook opens the show. What a treat to see how he's grown!
Download his new single from i-Tunes and all profits go to the ABC Squared, a foundation that works towards finding a cure for cancer.
Lil Rounds gets a duet with Queen Latifah! Hoo-boy, that's some goooood company she's in.
Bikini girl get implants!
Bikini girls gets Ryan's attention with her noticeable new additions.
Then, she gets hoisted by her own petard...Kara outsings her with her own song and then...flashes her teeny undies! Too hilarious!
Kris gets to sing with Keith Urban. Their voices blend so beautifully.
Allison and Cyndi Lauper? Perfection!
Wow! Danny Gokey with Lionel Ritchie! Niiice, very nice.
Wouldn't you know it?
No one other than KISS brings it on for Adam!
I totally loved it.
He holds his own with that epic band and he stands straight and tall beside them...he's a perfect fit!
Amazing man, this Adam Lambert.
Carlos Santana appears, and Matt and the Top 13 gets to sing with him and his band! How cool is that?
Megan Joy, Michael Sarver and Steve Martin perform a delightful little love song that Steve wrote for his new album. Very sweet!
I loved Rod Stewart, introduced by Adam!
That was a surprise, I had no idea he was appearing.
The Drama Queen of this season, Tatiana!
The funniest part is Ryan's imitation of her when he opens the envelope. "Aaaaaahhhhhhh!"
The perfect ending to the perfect night...Adam and Kris sing We are the Champions with Queen!
Wonder if they'll ask Adam to be their new lead singer?
I'm so enjoying the show that I know I've missed a few, but what the heck!
This has been a great finale, even though I'm exhausted from a long and hectic day, I've enjoyed it immensely.
This year's American Idol is...
The voters got it wrong, in my humble opinion. Adam is hands down the most gifted and the best singer.
The last time I looked, this was a singing competition.
But, as things always happen for a reason, it's possible that Kris needs this more than Adam.
Adam will be a star, with or without Idol.
So, in the long run, this is ok with me, for that reason.
Congratulations, Kris...congratulations, man!
