Adam Lambert Didn’t Win????

I have never understood the emotional investment people have about their favorite sports teams. I don’t know which team is in which league and I don’t care who wins.  People behave as if their team is their family. Better not say anything bad about the team, and don’t go near the fans the day after the team loses.  You might lose your head, or at least your hearing, about the unfairness of it all.

Now, tonight, I get it. As an ardent American Idol viewer, I’ve been wowed by Lambert since his first performance. He’s been the team I’ve been cheering for. I mean really cheering. He took the stage by storm with a range of notes I’ve never even heard and he did it consistently, week after week. He had charisma that I think has not been seen since Elvis Presley. He had confidence, presence, amazing good looks, polish, professionalism,  and sex appeal. He does not have talent. He has a gift. He made all the other contestants, including the winner, look like amateurs.

And he didn’t win. I feel as sad as my son would feel if the NY Yankees lost. I felt so sick about it I had to turn off the TV while the winner sang his song.

And so I wonder…why didn’t he win? I did not know until I fell upon it by chance today that he may be gay. That apparently there was a photo circulating the web showing him kissing another guy. When asked he said, “I am what I am.”   I so respect him for that. Yet also circulating the web were speculations that his questionable sexual orientation would bring him down in the end. Bad boy vs right wing boy next door.   If that’s why he lost, I’m not sad. I’m angry. So angry. As Cowell reiterated throughout the season, its supposed to be a talent show. 

Was this a witch hunt?

    i came online looking for some peace after the show – you describe my exact sentiments word-for-word. i cannot believe that Adam didn’t win. Kris is a talented guy, but Adam was way-above & beyond his league. Its not that i’m not 100% positive that Adam will have a fantastic career after this, it’s just that he DESERVED to win this.

    Exactly! It just seemed so unfair. And welcome to my blog, Asy.

    I’m still in the dark howling desert over the whole sports team thing and I have never managed to sit through more than five seconds of any reality show.
    But I do end up caring about characters on my favourite Tv shows, so it might be that I am human after all and there’s hope for me!
