Man, I can't believe I'm spending so much time yakking about a TV show that I didn't think I cared that much about this season.

I need to lie down with a cold compress on my forehead.

I am am a bit shocked from the outcome, but then again I am not. Almost everyone I know wanted Kris to win, which kind of suprised me. I really liked Adam at the beginning of the season, but then liked Kris more toward the end. I am not sure what changed...I think in general, I prefer Kris' style of music, which I know many others my age do (20s-30s). I think Adam is a much more talented singer, but Kris a more talented overall musician. Idol seems to have changed from just a singing competition over the last few years when the contestants started playing instraments and rearranging songs (which I love and I thinks it ups their game and stretchs them). Overall I would love to see Adam in concert, but would prefer Kris' album.

I think think saying Adam lost because of the gay factor is a very weak argument. It may have had a very small impact but not enough to make any difference. Most people I know didn't like Adam because they didn't like all the screaming and his style of music. Everyone agreed he has a fabulous voice.

I wish Ryan would have annouced the percentages. I have heard that it was not even close, which is why Ryan probably didn't say anything.

For those of you able to tolerate the why-does-he-still-have-a-show Larry King, the Idols are on his show tonight.

I already started the rumors at my house a couple of weeks ago.

Ok, my anger towards Kris' winning evaporates every time I see something like this. Leave it to a member of the Bush family to try and fan the flames of some straw man supported culture war. American Idol | Access Hollywood - Celebrity News, Photos & Videos

I love the fact that these 2 have managed to become such close friends regardless of the way the media tried to portray them. Kris may be a Christian from Arkansas, but he's clearly not some conservative, bigoted homophobe. He doesn't feel the need to clarify or explain his friendship with Adam like a lot of guys would. In the same vein, Adam as a (presumed) gay man doesn't feel like he needs to hide his friendship with Kris because of some preconceived notions the gay community may have about him. They genuinely love and respect each other, and I think they'll be friends for a long time.

Ouch.

News - Clay Aiken Slams "Frightening" Adam Lambert: He Makes My "Ears Bleed" | Usmagazine.com

I feel like rolling my eyes, giving him a dismissive hand flap and calling him a bitter old queen. And then mussing his hair affectionately.

Also interesting:

http://www.nypost.com/seven/05222009...ost_170409.htm

"The most intriguing report came from "Access Hollywood" host Billy Bush who, early yesterday, twittered the message:

"Source at the top says votes were NOT close on 'Idol.' Kris blew out Adam Lambert."

Now that I've had a chance to recoop from AI, I have realized a few things:

1. I realized that based on what I heard from tweens and teens, Adam was a little scary to them and on the older side so there was no appeal.

2. Most younger people want to belong to a website or look at there celebrity favorites on websites etc. Adams myspace page was shut down back in Feburary and if you Google images we all know what comes up. Even though I google him I wouldn't want my kids seeing some of his pictures.

3. I've heard people talking the past 2 days while I've been out and about and he disgusted alot of people with the eyeliner and polish.

I do think this is why he lost. But, I still love him!!!

And Clay Aiken who I used to like and wanted him to win during his AI stint is now history in my mind just because he based a fellow AI'er. I've lost all respect for him!

I watched the Larry King show (which was hosted by Ryan Seacrest tonight, thank goodness), and damned if lil' Kris Allen doesn't get cuter and more likable every time I see him.

Still don't want to buy his music, but I just want to hug that little guy.

This. He and Adam have the greatest bromance ever. They're definitely close than the other contestants. Also, way to be an even bigger douche, Danny Gokey. Something tells me Kris was only half-joking when he called you a jerk.

I also loved his response when asked about the "religious vote" or whatever, how he basically said he wasn't comfortable with that.

Then I laughed because he said "it's not like this is the presedential race." Oh, cutie. It shouldn't matter in that competition, either. C'mere, you. Lemme give you a big hug.
