Your American Idol Of 2009 Is...Kris Allen

Thursday, May 21, 2009

Yes, I'm shocked too, Kris.

Oh, where to begin about last night's festivities? A mini snark run-down of the best bits:
  • Cyndi Lauper was there, with the best performance of "Time After Time". It was monumental.
  • Rod Stewart looked a little under the influence of some brew, possibly not knowing where he was.
  • AI Judge Kara Dioguardi proved that she is a massive attention whore.
  • Norman Gentle popped up being the fabulous being he is.
  • Black Eyed Peas and Fergie had the censors all over them as they performed the awful, "Boom Boom Pow" and Fergie sang "Big Girls Don't Cry" for the 7,737,789th time.
  • Lionel Ritchie managed to make "All Night Long" boring. I blame contestant, Adam Gokey, who was at his side being obnoxious.
  • Someone got "escorted" off the stage by security, mid-broadcast.
  • AI Judge, Randy Jackson, out tackied finalist, Adam Lambert in that Dr. Dolittle outfit.
  • Queen and KISS were there...but no Aerosmith.
  • Oh, and finally the two best moments...Contestant Matt Guiard's scrunched up ~serious~ singing face during the performance of "Smooth"....and contestant, Anoop Desai being the only believable person singing, "Do You Think I'm Sexy?"
If you saw my Twitter, I kind of gave a mini-live blogging account and boy oh, boy was it fun to snark along to one of the most campiest finales in the history of American Idol. Seriously, who cared that Kris Allen won? He cannot compare to fellow contestant (and the shoe-in winner), Adam Lambert's Grace Jones-esque spacesuit contraption or the fact that Steve Martin's banjo playing is oodles better than contestant, Megahn Joy's howling singing. Oh, yes, American Idol served up the cheese platter with Cheez-Whiz on top this year. There was so much glitter, spandex (looking at you Queen Latifah and Lil' Rounds), microphone hogging and dry ice machinery going on that it felt like a disjointed musical on stage. If you missed the show, don't worry, clips of it are probably all over YouTube and on American Idol's official site, and if you need literature on what went down, there is a full on-the-minute recap here, especially if my spill didn't do it justice. Let's hear it for Idol for bringing the entertainment this season and hope that next year they serve up more priceless moments.

*Discuss the American Idol finale from Kris's win to Adam's outfits to what were the most laughable moments of the evening in comments!*


~Norman Gentle welcomes you into the comments...(yes, I cannot stop with the .gifs this week, help me)~


  1. Adam put up a good fight for sure... I'd be curious to know how many more votes Kris got over Adam

  2. I haven't been too bothered about American Idol since Melinda Doolittle was on it a couple of years back (wow, time flies).

    Am I the only one who really wasn't fussed this year who won it? If it wasn't for the internet, I wouldn't have a clue who was competing for the title.

  3. Didn't watch this year. Caught the final though and that guy who sang Change Is Gonna Come, wow! The other guy was cute! So was the guy in the glasses
