The big AI upset. That American "got it wrong". The show is rigged. The conspiracy theories are running amok right now.
And I could care less.
Seriously, I didn't give a darn who won, but I called it early in the season that Adam wouldn't. Some of that was because S was rooting for him and it's always easy to push his buttons, but mainly it the was image that bothered me.
Having seen him you would think he was right up my alley with his black fingernail polish and eye makeup.
Here's my issue - I think the image was contrived. Made up. For show. Not real. Like he jumped into the nearest Hot Topic and got a "glam rock" make over from the cashier.
I couldn't get past that his background is in theater and this was just another character he was playing. He was trying to play America and I wasn't buying it.
Granted the kid could sing. But the faux image turned me off.
I wasn't a regular watcher and often did other things while it was on, but I'm glad that I watched the entire show last night because they had some heavy hitters on there with the contestants.
Like KISS. In full make up and costume performing with who else - the theatrical Adam. And Queen, Black Eyed Peas, Lionel Richie, Keith Urban...plus several others.
My fave though...when Kara DioGuardi (the new judge this season) lays the smack down on "bikini girl". Start watching around 1:35 and watch until 2:37 and you'll see too.
Guess she showed her huh?
