"And Your 2009 American Idol is....KRIS ALLEN!"

I screamed at the top of my lungs, tears ran down my cheeks, and I raised my hands to heaven to thank God for letting Kris Allen win American Idol. I know. I did dramatize it all a bit, but you have absolutely NO IDEA how excited, relieved, and ecstatic I was! Everyone thought that Adam "had it in the bag" (that phrase was beginning to get on my nerves), and I must the way everyone talked...I thought that maybe he "had it in the bag" too. I had prepared myself for that let-down, and even the few seconds up until Ryan Seacrest said Kris Allen's name, I said out loud, "Adam is gonna win." Boy, I've never been more happy to be wrong in all of my life. My Twitter read: "Now all of you Adam Lambert fans can deflate your ego, because KRIS ALLEN WON!"

I was afraid that the neighbors were going to call 911, and that I was going to wake Bree up with that loud scream I let out. Evidently, the neighbors weren't worried, and Bree sleeps like a rock. I know that the judges worked really hard at trying to set Adam up to win, but when it all comes down to the audience choosing the winner...we chose the one who would be the best fit in the music industry. I can't see myself enjoying a song on the radio sung by Adam Lambert, but I can see myself listening to a Kris Allen song on the radio, over and over again. That's how American Idol voters need to vote. Not on who looks the best, or has the coolest clothes, but on whether or not you can hear them on the radio. Whether or not you will spend money on their album. Those types of things. Adam Lambert belongs on Broadway in tights. Kris Allen belongs on the radio, with albums, and concerts.

So, yes, I was very happy with the outcome of American Idol, but now I am wondering what we will watch on Tuesday & Wednesday nights? Do I seriously have to wait until January for another season of American Idol? What do we generally watch during the Summer? I guess I'll have to figure that one out.

Did your pick for American Idol win & how do you feel about the winner?

Hey, just commenting from (the secret is in the suace) Ok, I have to admit I only watched seasons 1 and 2 of AI but when Kelly Clarkson won I screamed and jumped up and down! BTW I love your summer look- the blue is cool like the ocean.

:D jumping up and down & screaming just cannot be helped when a new American Idol is announced; whether it's who you wanted to win or not. & Thank you...I wanted to give people a feel of Summer when they visited my blog :)
