It’s not like me to be political (not on here anyway, it’s supposed to be an art blog) BUT, I’ve just got to SAY……………..
Great finale to American Idol, which i have been watching avidly. Of course Adam Lambert should have won, but I just sort of KNEW that Kris Allen, ‘nice guy all American Boy’ would win. Likeability factor? both are likeable. Talent factor? COME ON,no contest from where I’m sitting!
I have to put it down to the AMERICAN DREAM. Yes, it’s still going….. small town guy with small talent, (or Mr Average Joe with Mr Average talent IMHO) appeals to the masses and makes it BIG, hereby making the ‘dream’ come true. Of COURSE Kris won. And good luck to the lad! I really do wish him well.
As for the American dream, well it was a new day yesterday…but its an OLD day now. WELL DONE ADAM LAMBERT! Great that you won’t have to sing that bloody AWFUL song lol! I knew and still feel that we are witnessing the emergence of someone who is going to be GIGANTIC! Mark me, this guy will become an ICON………because of his TALENT (which is WHY he SHOULD have won……….)
Of course I am looking at the result in a simplistic way. …… There is a LOT of stuff going on under the surface of this ‘talent’ show……
