Who deserves it?!

I decided not to blog about Idol last week but it seems i cant help it with all the harpings and ramblings now going on "Who deserves to win the Idol?". It's already decided by you Americans, it's done done done. So stop and give a break to poor Mr Kris Allen who has been the victim of media by getting hit by all those non-stop accusations and harsh criticisms; eversince his winning last week, on him being crowned as the new American Idol. Let him take a breath and spread his wings in his own way in the industry which is just the begining for him, for Adam and everyone in the competition.


Despite the hype and hoohaas on Lambert since the begining of the show and also the clearly-seen bias judges in this season, i am not really a fan of this guy with eyeliner and black-color polished nails. No doubt he nailed every song he belted out throughout the competition and his superb voice is undeniably one of the reasons to get him to the finale. But his style and genre of music he's doing is somewhat that i would say not as appealing as much as Kris's. Not many people would like his music genre; some heavy-metal hard rock type, wouldn't they??

The Gothic style Adam Lambert
Tell me honestly would you rather buy an album like Lambert's or Kris's? I defintely wouldnt want my ears to bleed by hearing an album with screamings and screeching voices of Adam's. Kris's genre is more appealing to the majority of listeners, and im sure definitely his songs in his upcoming album would be radio-friendly type, at least no shoutings-on top of your lungs-voices.

The boy-next-door Kris AllenPush aside the reasons that most Adam's fans are talking about now, the "Christians Votes", anti-Semitism and homophobia factor; I dont think there could be that many homophobics out there enough to have swayed the Idol outcome to favour Kris, and now blaming the rigged voting system by AT&T provided phones for free text-messaging services at two Support-Allen parties on the night of the finals. It was reported that AT&T reps showed the party-goers how to cast 10 votes at the touch of a button which actually violates show rules. And no such texting services were provided to the Adam's fans.

Im not saying Adam's not good but in a way, i think the outcome of this season is about which singer the majority of the people would love to hear from. Though Kris's performances were of mediocre compare to Adam's nailed-on plus sometimes theatrical and over the top ones, but still, i think majority would enjoy Kris's songs than of Adam's; i repeat again, which are proned to give you an ear bleed except for "Mad World", the only song that would give you a soothing mind from him.


I actually think the whole season was biased in favour to Adam, making every week like it's The Adam Lambert's Show. The judges were quite obvious bias in favour to Lambert, and even the producer is in favour to him!!! In the Finale, song like "We Are The Champions" by Queen was picked as duet song for Kris and Adam is the proof!!! My goodness, some people used this performance to pull Kris down by saying his voice was drowned off by Adam's, and for that Adam is no doubt better than of Kris? Helloooooo..... how could you judge this way, that song was so Adam's "territory" and not Kris's wasn't it?!!! It's bias obviously!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lambert's and Allen's performance with Queen
The winner.....

...of the American Idol...

...2009

...is.......

.....Kris Allen!!
I have been rooting for Kris since day one in the season as mentioned in my earlier post "Ukelele". I knew he would make it far and he did. But poor him, he has been criticised by the media and mostly Adam's fans constantly since his winning moment till today that he did not deserve the title. That actually made him feel bad, hurt and guilty with his winning.

Hello..... it's not his fault anyway!! So stay off this young chap's way from rising to the stardom. I bet he will have a bright future in the industry and im so going to grab his album once it's out!!

Kris definitely deserves it. Tell you why, because he:
1. Is multi-talented; plays 5 music instruments
2. Down to earth young man
3. Doesnt sing song that gives you heart attack (easy-to-hear songs)
4. Has the boy next door look that probably wins many female & gay fans, and even the grandmas at home.
5. Never try to go over the top or be theatrical.

So be strong, you'll make it through the pain, weather the hurricane to get to that one thing... There're NO BOUNDARIES.....

apparently AT&T went through a wireless fraud passing out phones to kris' fans that could vote multiple sms per entry which violates the voting law. Hmm.....

oh well, they will forget abt this slowly after they are bored of this topic

The AT&T fraud is definitely controversial. Well, as u said, what is done is done, life still goes on. Besides, it's sure that Adam will still do great in the industry despite not winning the competition. His genre of music (Neo-glam, alternative + hard + experimental rock and Power pop) will earn a lot of Americans' heart as well as their cash LOL. especially if he's going on tour like Queen, Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin etc which earn them hundreds of million every year.
Kris is gonna be successful in his album selling on the other hand.

hmm..i totally agree on this.the judges had all been biased towards adam and were obviously in favour of him winning since i do not know when.....i agree he has a very good voice,strong vocal etc.but he doesnt appeal to the mass public.no doubt he's a singer but not an artist.the current trend is of artists with a singer songwriter vibe which can be seen in kris.another point is that kris sings songs which bring meaning and that people can relate to.his performances are heartfelt and sincere,it's not about showing off about one's talent as opposed to what adam always do in his performances.kris is a down-to-earth kinda guy and he doesnt need a big voice to be recognised as a successful artist or singer.in a nutshell, i feel kris has the 'package'-he can make songs his own,plays instruments, the looks and most importantly, he makes the listeners feel as though he's singing it to us.he deserves the title for he had to work 100 times harder to prove the judges and the critics wrong,and he shown such vast improvements throughout the show and that's what makes him great..instead of trumping him and critising his win,why not celebrate the victorious underdog?

I do not feel that Adam's songs will cause bleeding to the ears.. It is pretty cool...

Well if Adam is the one who was crowned the winner, Kris's fans will be shooting nasty comments on him..like "Oh he is a GAY!" Blah Blah Blah... It is a natural process in such competition. It is the same in Singapore..

Adam and Kris each has their own style. It is up to the individual preferences and likings. I personally do not mind Adam's screaming.. it excites me.. Just like when I am listening to Mariah Carey's songs and when she reach her high notes, it is amazing cool and exciting..

In addition, one must have the x factor and the attitude to handle heavy metal songs or rock songs.. Not any tom dick harry can do it.. So that is Adam's talent.

I serioualy cannot be bother who is the winner.. As long as he or she can sing nice songs, I will give my support.

Last but not least... ADAM ROCKS!!

No matter who wins, both of them had proven their knack to the world and it all depends on how they work it out after the competition.
I love them both, but i think i like Adam better. maybe cos' he's dramatic? LOL
