America, You Got it Wrong

One of the biggest disappointments of American Idol to date is Danny Gokey going home last night. I can't wait until he has a CD released, because he's the only one I'd ever listen to a whole CD of his songs - and I will. I have voted for Danny since day one, and I am finding You Are So Beautiful on itunes today.

Adam Lambert proved he couldn't sing anything without screaching (and sticking out his tongue at the same time--freaky) He's a nice enough fellow, but a screamer all the same. He has a good voice, but I never heard it used enough. Kris Allen is okay, but just not very exciting.

I will vote for Kris, though in my mind, Danny is the true idol.


  1. I seriously think that, of the three, Kris is the artist. Kris is the one who will have a career. I'm not sure why but I just feel like her really has his own vision of a song.
    Love his guitar playing. I can see him writing songs and forming a band.

    The hard rock stuff Adam loves is just sooooooo not my thing but I'm sure it's SOMEBODIES thing.

    Good luck to them all.

  2. I'm completely with you, Cheryl. Adam is very talented, but I don't like hard rock screaming, his costumes, or his expression when singing.

    Kris might be a true artist like Mary said; time will tell.

    I've liked Danny from the beginning, and the sympathy factor had nothing to do with it. It's not always the winner who is most successful. I think Danny will go far.
