I Can't Believe I'm Writing This
There is no television in the Moore home. However we had dinner at Mom's last night and she is a big American Idol fan. Since the story had an Arkansas angle, what with Conway's Kris Allen as one of the two finalists, I watched most of it.
My opinion's on this are no more informed than anybody else's, but here is my take (feel free to add yours).
1. Adam had a slightly better voice in the first round but Simeon was right, the theatrics did not have the same good feeling tone as Kris. Both were amazing. Score it either 10-10 or 10-9 Kris.
2. Adam won this round, Kris was really good but too flat or something. Again, I found myself agreeing with Simeon. He kind of reminds me of me- sometimes tactless and the only excuse he can offer is that it is the truth. Score it 10-9 or even 10-8 Adam. He really was that strong on it.
3. Kris won this round. Adam tried to do too much and a few of the notes ended a bit ragged. Score it 10-9 Kris.
Overall the score was tied, or even Adam was up a tiny bit based on margin of victory. Still, that third song was not only the last round, but both were singing their interpretation of the same song. That was the closest thing to a head-to-head and it was the song Kris most showed his superiority one.
For no extra charge: I would be happy to listen to a whole album of Kris right now. Maybe Adam has more range of style than he could show in that setting, but I would tire of listening to a whole album of what I heard last night, even if I would be awestruck by the first few songs. Also, the new judge gets too much caffeine.
Congratulations to Kris Allen, my winner. Later today we can see what American says.
There, I'm over it now.
