Final Thoughts

Amy, I agree with you about the screaming. What really bugs me about it is the way he sticks his tongue out when he does it. The notes are beautiful, always perfect, but why does the tongue have to come out of the mouth? Now, I said always perfect, but that awful song that Kara cowrote sounded really off. I thought Kris sounded a little off on that one too, so maybe she wrote the wrong notes - HA! There was too much up and down and all over the place with it.

Yes, Mad World is the most beautiful song - we googled it and found a version where the guy made a video with school kids forming pictures shot from the roof of a school. I thought Kris's first 2 songs were fantastic. I beg to differ with Simon on the 2nd one - I thought he totally made that his own with new chords and there were strings in the background that made it fancier.

And for the first time, I didn't vote because I think both of them are fantastic. In other news, did anyone watch Glee? I guess that's taking the time slot - it was HI-larious! The cheerleader coach is the best.

Please scroll back to "American Idolicious" - did I not predict Adam and Kris in the finals? Why were all the judges so taken aback at the announcement? They looked like they took a gut-punch when Danny got booted! I mean I can see that the guy's a little versatile, but he's also a little cocky if you ask me. Nothing approaching Anoop, but no hint of humbleness at all. So woo-hoo Kris! Momma loves you! You and Adam are both winners, oh wait, I hear retching...that'll be all.

Thoughts on Adam

I love Adam. He needs to join the family as one of my sons - it's that kind of love, not "boys, meet your new daddy" love. He seems terribly vulnerable and fragile - every time they compliment him he mouths "thank you." So humble. But I really wish he would stick with the ballads like Mad World - that was the best. The Led Zeppelin song (forgot the name - Alzheimer's acting up again) was lovely vocally (no, lovely is not really the word for that), but I don't like to see my boy looking so rough with the eyeliner and tough clothes. I think he could get in with the wrong crowd. Ever see Less Than Zero? I want Adam to avoid those types of friends.

And one more thing...the public who feel it necessary to comment on his gay-ness or non-gay-ness should just shut the hell up. You can't watch his you-tube videos without nasty comments all over the screen, and whose business is it? I'm just so proud of him and his very normal-looking parents who support him - it brings a tear to my eye. That's all - didn't mean to sound like my grandmother there but I had to get it off my chest.
