American Idol

August 1, 2009

My name is Marhi and I'd like to discuss an issue that I feel needs to become known.

There are many talent competitions throughout the world, such as American Idol, America's Got Talent, and Britain's Got Talent. I watch quite a few of these shows, but when I watched American Idol last season, I was extremely disappointed.

I sat there on my couch in front of the television, just waiting for them to state the winning contestant. I thought I knew exactly whose name was going to be called. I knew the true winner. I bit down on my bottom lip in anticipation.

“And the winner is . . . Kris Allen!” the host called and my jaw nearly in the floor. My mouth was gaping open with disappointment.

It was completely obvious that Adam Lambert had one of the strongest voices you could ever come into hearing range with. Kris Allen was a good singer, don't get me wrong, but Adam Lambert was a great singer.

I believe that the reason the wonderful Adam has lost the life changing competition was because he had come out with his sexuality during the competition. He is a homosexual and I'm glad to say that he's proud of that.

The photos that were exploited were simply of a young man having fun. I have three older cousins that party and act like idiots just as he was. Please, don't blame an incredible young man for having fun.

Even with the unfair voting results, I'm glad that Adam came in second place. If he had won, Kris Allen wouldn't have gotten his chance. They would have tossed him to the side and everything would revolve around Adam Lambert. He didn't deserve to win, but it turned out that way for a reason.
