the answer to my last post is… “Kris”.
I found the entire show stunning. A little scary at times, I mean KISS all these years later, and Rod Stewart!? Well, I just didn’t know what to expect. They pulled it off, though, didn’t they? Carlos Santana… well, what can I say? THERE’s the man. But the stunner of all stunners for me was QUEEN! Yes. I’m an avid fan. In my opinion, Adam Lambert is the closest Brian and Roger will get to someone whose range is as impressive as the late, great Freddie Mercury.
Adam is not the American Idol.
Who can say why the votes went the other way. Kris, is absolutely adorable and he certainly held his own tonight, but push to shove, Adam’s voice soars miles above. There is no doubt. So, it can’t be his voice that didn’t sway the public. Could it be his supposed lifestyle? Are we STILL that backward? Or was it simply the opinion that he wasn’t as good as young, sweet-smiling Kris?
Though I find the last one hard to believe, I guess we’ll never know for sure. One thing we can guarantee, however, is Adam will not fade to black. Without being bound by American Idol contracts as Idol, he will produce his own music and continue to sing his heart out.
Well, I’m not all that upset. Kris, after all, is fun to watch. So all in all, tonight was in fact a win-win night.
Now if all that’s true… why don’t I feel happy?
