Simon wanted to crown him, so America was going to crown Adam’s [backside] tonight. And then the voting results came in. And then the commentary began…
In a show that had the return of BEWBS, a plethora of jaunty hats (in multiple colors, no less), and Alexis Grace’s return in thigh high Boots with a “Y’ALL MY PUSSY’S HANGING OUT” skirt (and bless her for that), the end game was all about the results. And yes – Kris Allen FTW.
Surveying the response, it is… colorful.
First – one of the most noteworthy stories, out of Arkansas –
UPDATE: Told ya so! You heard it here first. It was the Arkansas vote!!! AT&T confirms 38 million votes from Arkansas alone. There were 100 million votes total for both finalists. Now that’s what I call Getting Out The Vote. Congratulations Kris and family.
38 million votes, for a state of 3 million people. This deserves the ultimate Arkansas, Whut Whut from Jerkwheat, but since he is not around – I’ll do it for him.
The TelevisionWithOutPity forums are alive with feelings, but pulling two from the heap, “holly08” is not taking this well:
Biggest bunch of FUCKING bullshit I have ever seen on tv in my life. I am done with this fucking show. Yea, Kris you won but you will have Adam outselling your white bread boring ass self in no time. Look at the Itunes sales. Adam is all over you.
“kirklandagain”, however, says the thing my teacher stepsisters probably say every morning:
and mediocrity wins again. good job America.
AOL Television is a forum I never should have entered. I found myself saying speaking Web to my infant son for his second lullaby after reading it.
Patricia gets us off to an understated start here:
I was around when Elvis was in the same position as Adam…and I heard them say he would not last, either. ‘Nuff said.
Sure – the pressure of the 19 Entertainment was too much, but comparisons to Elvis, that’s cool.
Later on, “leekenobi” is evidently not a fan of our Roundtable:
I am proud to say that between Adam and Kris….I have never heard of either one of these assholes. Let’s face it, all of you American Idol zombies are fucking idiots who don’t know real music if it were to walk up and bite you in the arse. Good night!
And then we cut to the core of the matter for “Harry”:
I was a big fan of Adam but was turned off to him as a person once I saw the photos. But not because he was in drag. Not even because he was kissing another guy. Because of the way he came across in those photos. they were clearly directed at the camera; trashy, and attention-loving. Not cool. Humility is important if you are in this profession. Whether he intended it or not, that’s the way it came across. It’s off-putting if you look like you’re slobbering someone for the sake of how controversial looking the picture will be. Great that he’s pushing buttons…but bad form.
Obviously, he was voting for the American Role Model, not American Idol.
Harley, I hope, is female, like Harley Quinn:
Adam was ROBBED!!!!!!!!!!!!! Just like Giles Marini last night on DWTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This week was just too much for some people to take. They’ve overdosed on exclamation points.
Jamie will finish off our AOLSpeak –
YAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!! America got it right. And no it’s not homophobia that won, it was a Christian that had PLENTY of prayers and God does answer them. I will say that a homosexual, way over the top, dramatic person like Adam, shoud never be considered a role model, much less an American Idol. America should not rally around such sinful behavior. And yes, we all sin, but the problem is most repent and know they’re wrong. Homosexuality is not recognized as a sin to those who live that lifestyle, therefore repentance never takes place, unless they totally turn away from that lifestyle and truly ask for forgiveness and do what is morally right, not in my eyes, the eyes of the Lord. LOVE YOU AMERICA
If God was calling in, no wonder no one else could get through. He’s got some powers, ya know.
Finally, our old friend Andrea is now at Zap2It.com running fabulous recaps and LiveBlogs – seriously, check her out, especially since we are leaving a void in your life – and had some doozies in her recap of tonight’s results.
Kerry, kick us off!
And to punish him further, he has to sing that stupid song again!
That’s actually fair, though to note, they seemed to have adjusted it for him down a level.
Poor Josh just doesn’t know what to do:

This show just lost all credibility!

This show just Jumped the Shark. Kill it now. The crowd was not even into him. EPIC FAIL!
May 20, 2009 7:08:06 PM
Screechy?? Please..Kris sings out the side of his mouth like a chipmunk. Terrible!
May 20, 2009 7:12:04 PM
He has the final word here, too –
the gay boy lost, YES !!!!!

So what does it all mean? Nothing. it is still just Non-Reality TV. But at least now you’ve gotten to laugh at stupid people.
