“Kris Allen is good but Adam Lambert is better.”
“Guys voted for Kris Allen so Adam Lambert won’t win.”
“Kris just won the night but Adam is this season’s man!”
These are some of the comments I have read online after Kris Allen was awarded Season 8’s American Idol. Oh well, I don’t wanna believe they’re bitter. Yes, Adam might deserve this season’s title but Kris won it. What we could do as supporters is back up our bets and make sure they make it big in the scene. People have different reasons for voting either Kris or Adam but we need not generalize. Okidok?
I, again, am looking back at all the things I have posted before about Kris Allen; and here are the reasons why i backed him up through and through:
1. He had the right pacing.
Kris Allen did not start out strong but he wasn’t the worst from the bunch. Week after week, though, he is establishing himself and makes a mark on the judges and whole of America. He had some lapses at some points in the competition but he makes it through and makes himself and his performances better. 😉
2. He has all the elements of a star.
I would have to agree with some that Kris is this season’s Jason Castro; fun and lovable personality + good looks + laidback vocal quality + musicality. He may not be the personality of the season but he has a personality of his own.
3. He is decided and he knows himself.
One thing that differentiates Kris from JC is that he is more decided to win it (and he did!); and every week, and in every song he sings, he was distinct (There were several people in the group who has distinct sounds as well – there’s Adam and Allison.) and quoting Randy, we will definitely know what records he is going to make after the competition.
4. He is Mr. Nice Guy.
Who says nice guys finish last? Kris disproved it! He never answers back (even if he has been provoked at times) but learns from the comments given to him. Result? A good performance from him and a good image to the public. 😉
5. He is Unpredictable.
I say who would have thought Kris Allen wins American Idol? He was never given much exposure during the auditions or the Hollywood week. During the Top 36, people see him as the pretty-faced guy, nothing more.
Many people predicted that the farthest he could get in the competition is til the Top 8, especially that there were several favorites who emerged. But Kris competed week per week and captures it. Also, I would have to give credit to his song choices. He chooses songs which would appeal much to everyone.
Many people think Adam would eat Kris alive during the Finale but Mr. Lambert was only a few notches higher than him, given his exemplary vocal prowess. It was almost a draw. But I sticked it with Kris! 🙂
Yesterday, after watching the performances, I am still confused on who would win. It doesn’t matter since the two guys are friends and they are artists of their own right but it would do me much favor if the boy-next-door wins.
Come afternoon, I well, have the gut feel I should never be upset because there will be an upset… I had it broadcasted with my friends! Haha! It happened. 🙂
Congratulations, Kris Allen! I was never this attached to any AI contestant (after Jason? Haha!) who never failed me and all his other supporters out there. Truly, he deserved to win! We still have to look forward to his career’s success but I will definitely take part on it! 🙂 You’re the man! (Sooooo excited for your first album! 🙂
