...I can't believe it! I so can't believe it! I knew he was good, personally out of both of them I preferred him. I'm not one to actually buy CDs, but I had vowed that whenever he released one, I would get it. Few weeks ago, nobody really paid attention to him, the main focus was on Allison, Danny and Adam. Simon had spoken that the title was Adam's, the polls had Adam sealed in...and slowly I too had given up and resigned the whole thing to the fact that na Adam go win am. But just about 6mins ago KRIS ALLEN was named the American Idol of '09!!!! I can't believe it!
Talk about being the 'Underdog', 'The Dark Horse' talk about '...faith like a mustard seed', talk about it people. From day one the guy had been so humble and composed, in a world of his own. Even Simon Cowell kept saying he was too much of a nice guy, and that it wouldn't get him anywhere...but look where it got him.
I don't know 'bout y'all, but I think we've all been 'Kris A.' at some point in our lives (I know I have). You know you've prepared for that interview and have everything on point from ur appearance to your mental content, but then lurking at the back of your mind somewhere is Mr. Doubt. Or when you have a dream/goal/vision and people around you, especially the ones whose opinions mean the world to you, don't believe in you. Or when even after giving it ur best shot, it seems like your best just ain't good enuff.
They say man proposes and God disposes! His ways are not our ways.
Adam Lambert is a good artist, a great performer, a crowd pleaser, and to many he had what the competition was looking for. But, I guess the title wasn't his; we're definitely gonna be seeing alot of him, no doubt. As for Kris, I'm looking forward to his album already! His duet with Keith Urban was nice, I think him and Jamie Foxx (luv him!!!) will make a good collabo single...and his rendition of Kanye West's 'Heartless' was off tha' chains...I preferred it to the original.
Honestly guys, I can't tell you how happy I am that Kris won. My take-away lesson from this is that 'it's not over until it's over'; and regardless of the situation not to write myself off even if others have. They say nice guys finish last...but tonite am glad the nice guy finished FIRST!!!
P.S: Sorry this post is disjointed, disoriented, disorganized...am just excited and hungry...lol.
Talk to you guys soon!
