…This is a singing competition after all.
Despite not really paying attention to this season of American Idol, it was hard to miss that Adam Lambert was far and away this year’s best contestant. I heard it at my mom’s house, I heard it at work, I saw it on the internet, I heard it on the news. Hell it seemed a forgone conclusion that he would win.
So I headed over to my mom’s house yesterday to watch the finale (as is tradition) and waited to hear Adam’s name called. As Ryan took the envelope from some English dude we all were talking about how seemlessly Adam fit in with KISS. I mean that’s KISS you’re up there with and you feel right at home. Props on that one Adam. Then Ryan opened the envelope and announced, “Your new American Idol is”…
As I sat there watching my mother throw a temper tantrum in the living room, it suddenly dawned on me; He might have been able to make it to the finals, but Adam Lambert never stood a chance of winning this competition. I started to think of some others who would never stand a chance on American Idol.
So what say you readers? Did Adam lose because he is flamingly gay?
