More Thoughts On American Idol

I know I "live tweeted" Idol last night, but I've had some time to think today (you don't say?!) and there are more things that need to be addressed:

1. Norman Gentle? Love that kid. Very funny, great gimmick. I love that they flashed back to when he was singing that song and right in the middle he just shouts out "Seacrest!" Classic.

2. I could not STAND Kara until last night. Now she's my girl.
Older Women: 1, Youngsters: ZERO.

3. Kris was just as surprised as everyone else was that he won. I was listening to the radio today and a deejay said something that I hadn't thought about. She said it's the first time she hasn't cried watching the finale, and the first time the winner didn't cry. There really wasn't much emotion to this one. Nothing beats Kelly Clarkson (1.) and Carrie Underwood (2.) Taylor Hicks and David Cook were pretty emotional too. Even Ruben was emotional. I hate Fantasia, so I never cared about that season. I only liked one performance from her -- when she sang "What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life?" and she cried at the end.
And Jordin Sparks. I almost forgot about her! Her win was pretty emotional too! Kris was in shock. Bottom line. He didn't expect to win.

4. Adam will be fine. I'm sick of everyone today saying that his not winning is Idol being anti-gay. Ridiculous. I would be shocked if that was even remotely true. So now that we've settled that, look at Chris Daughtry, David Archuleta, JENNIFER HUDSON!!! None of them won, and look at them now. Adam will be fine. He should release a duet with Allison PRONTO.

5. Megan Joy truly needs to walk away now. There's no reason for any of us to ever see her again. I'm sorry. She never belonged on the show. Period. Ditto with that drama queen, whatever her name is.

And, as always, my last thought when it comes to Idol... What Would Brian Dunkleman do?
