Kris Allen bagged the title of American Idol 2009. A victory which surprised many since Adam Lambert was the shows and the judges favorite contestant. Although for me, I saw this coming. I mean, isn't this too familiar? Dont any of you remember what happened last year when everyone thought especially Simon Cowell that David Archuleta would win but it was David Cook who won.
Come to think about it, this is a victory on Adam's part coz now he can pursue an award-winning solo career. If you win AI, your career is controlled for a period of time. You have to follow the producers of AI. Think about it, among all the winners of AI, it was only Kelly Clarkson who actually became famous. Next would be Carrie Underwood. Before you react on this, ask yourself, "Where did Ruben Studdard, Fantasia Barino, Jordin Sparks, and Taylor Hicks go?"
Even the last winner David Cook's career is going down the drain, sure he does concerts here and there but is he really that big in the industry? Those who didnt win AI have become much more succesful in the music industry. Jennifer Hudson, Chris Daughtry, David Archuleta are all far more succesful since they got to pick their solo careers. Tamyra Gray and Dianna DeGarmo have become the toast of broadway. So I know that this isn't the end for Adam Lambert. Lets see in a few months who's hits would reach the number one spot.
But to be fair to Kris Allen, his version of "No Boundaries" the final competition piece composed by AI judge Kara DioGuardi was better. Though the key was a bit too high for him, he still sounded better than Adam. I guess we have to consider that in the standing right?
