An Ode To The American Idol Finalists

Thursday, May 14th, 2009

Since American Idol is one of the few TV shows I watch regularly, I’d be remiss if I didn’t comment on the finalists and write a limerick for finalists Kris Allen and Adam Lambert:

Many kudos to Adam and Kris!
Having Allison there would be bliss.
But it could have been worse.
I am Gokey-averse,
And he’s one guy I surely won’t miss.

American Idol Review

Wednesday, May 6th, 2009

I feel (and share) EW’s Michael Slezak’s rage over the American Idol judges’ performance last night.

So what are we both so angry about? I sum it up in my American Idol Review haiku:

An “A for for effort”
To Gokey from the judges?
An F for standards.

Update: Now I’m really angry! Just as I feared, American Idol booted Allison Iraheta instead of Danny Gokey. Talk about unfair! The only good part is we were spared an encore rendition of Danny’s infamous final note.
