For those who follow American Idol show on Astro, this year’s result was surprising. Kris Allen, with his ‘boy next door’ image , won. The hot favourite, Adam Lambert, whose song every week was the highest downloaded in I-tune among all idol contestants, lost.
I thought Adma was by far the more talented and more versatile singer. His vocal range is fantastic; he can sing slow and low; he can sing high and sustained. His stage performance was like a super star,as mentioned by some of the judges . Even Simon Cowell, who is usually very critical, gave him a standing ovation, and Paula Abdul was won over and confessed that she will be his life long fan.
How can he not win? I like Kris, too. He sings very well and has improved over the weeks. He deserves to be in the final, but i thought Adam is more talented and has better vocal control.
Anyway this is the choice of American viewers, and for this final, about 100 million votes were received.
I normally do not follow American Idol with much enthusiasm. This year however the presence of Adam has kindled my interest in the show. I thought Adam has raised the bar so high that it has forced all other contestants to buck up and improve themselves. Well done ! Adam Lambert. you will be s star and i will probably be hearing more of your songs.
