Girls Write Out
Wednesday, May 20, 2009
Well, it was Glambert vs. Kris in a contest that brought us a snoozer of a finale on "American Idol". Personally, I didn't care enough to spend the time watching it, but I did run through the highlights. Okay, I love "Mad World" by Adam. I think he should release that song.

Kara annoys me to no end, but her music, even more so. Please. Don't make either winner sing that song. How is that winning exactly? That song was dreck.

I think Adam can really sing, and visually, he puts on quite a show, but I think the judges overrate him. When he tones it down and controls it (such as in "Mad World") he translates to listening to, but there are a lot of times, he just screams, and I'm beat by the end of the song. I doubt I'd make it through a song if he were on the radio doing that. I think the judges are too star-struck by him. He has the talent to do what he wants, does he have the restraint?

I love Kris, but I don't see him as being much different from David Cook or others on the path before him. Other than he's more musically talented, and can probably write his own stuff and maybe take a Daughtry road. What did you all think? Did you care this year?

I think Adam is way overrated! Even his slow/quiet songs he gets some screams in there. I don't want to listen to that! I get it, you can hit those notes...i just don't want to hear it in every song!

I love Kris! I can already hear his voice and style of singing on the radio! He is so musically talented and seems very humble.

I agree about that last song! How do you write a song for the winner if it's not even in his range?? Plus it was just a dumb song:)

Abby, that's a great way to put it. The screaming just gets to you after a time.

I have never understood the whole Adam lovefest. I find him very one dimensional in that all he does is the theatrical loud (read SCREAM) singing. He rather creeps me out too - there is something in his eyes that bother my spirit :-(

I'm all for Kris now that Danny is gone!

I just feel the judges hijacked the competition with their constant harping on Kris and overzealousness for Adam. I'll be interested to see if it worked.

well, I really wanted Danny to win, but someone made a good point -- since he did not win, now he can sign on w/ a Christian label if he wants to instead of being stuck w/ the AI label. I like Kris way better than Adam.
