Amercian Idol After Adam Lambert


~~Does American Idol exist after Adam Lambert?

Apparently Not.

Haven’t you observed the blahness, the blandness, and the utter boredomness? Sure, some of the contestants are terrific, but is terrific sufficient? Is terrific worth missing Criminal Minds or a 7:00 roll in the hay?

The truth is, Adam Lambert set the bar so freaking high that every competitor is now, well, how can I word this, “DULL as triple Hell.” Sort of reminds me of Plath’s poem- where she describes somebody (actually, her out of town guests) as “flat paper dolls.”

Yeah, Goldilocks is gorgeous with that bluesy sexiness oozing. Mama Sox has that kind of breezy Bonnie Raitt thing goin’ on. And I want to gobble up Big Mike and hug, hug, hug him to death. But seriously, Lambert has made even these talented singers appear tedious, yawn-worthy, uninteresting, and dry as the inside of a mouth after drinking Merlot mercilessly and recklessly all night long.

I mean, watching Glam Boy each week was like experiencing a bomb exploding, untamed foreplay, and if one lacked any stimulation that particular day, s/he would most definitely and unequivocally receive a full dose of hotness that night.

Anticipation is a drug.

Black leather pants. Sleek leopard lined eyes. Vocals soaking soulfully into bones. Testosterone. More. We always wanted more. It didn’t matter a damn if Adam only kissed boys. We wanted him for ourselves, regardless.

Even the judges seem uninterested this year. If Simon isn’t flirting with Kara, his eyes are half opened like Garfield, the Cat. (Yes, Mr. C, it’s a good time to split this gig). Randy is tsk-tsking and yawning- “Oh, that wasn’t good for me, Dog. Sorry.” And Ellen usually says with a sugary smile, “You look cute tonight. I’m acquiring a taste for you.”

Do I need to tell you that when a judge declares you’re cute or that you look super fine; what they’re truly saying is: YOUR PERFORMACE SUCKED EGGS!

It’s time. Meritocracy is not acceptable. Blah is a bore. And I blame Lambert. I blame him because American Idol is finished, over with, repetitive, and irrelevant without somebody who blows your mind from one end of the room to the other.

Sometimes one must know when enough is enough, when it’s time to pull the bloody plug, when the luminosity has finally muted and faded.

Mr. Cowell is a genius for grasping this in advance, for understanding that American Idol is now just going through the motions.

And in my opinion, that really sucks rotten eggs.

    I gave American Idol a shot for season 9 but like you said it was so boring! Even Adam’s season would have been boring if he wasn’t there. Imagine season 8 without Adam. The finale would have been two boring Christian church boys. Maybe Gokey would have revised his rendition of Scream on. Gokey and Allen together would have paraded the never ending wardrobe of Plaid and T-Shirts. Ho Hum…

    Maybe X-Factor or The Voice will be more fun. Or better yet I’ll just skip the shows altogether

    I watched AI S3 – 7 randomly liked Bo Bice but that was it. When I tuned into S8 and saw Adam Lambert I was blown away and looked forward to every week just to see what he would do next. Not only is he the best talent to come from that reality show but in my opinion he’s the best talent in the music business today. I followed Elvis, MJ but mostly listened to Motown and Classic Rock until Adam. He’s started an entirely new genre; rock, pop, blues, and soul sound mixed into one completely different sound. S9 was so boring that I didn’t watch it until Adam mentored during Elvis week. The ratings went through the roof those two days and his performance was the first of it’s kind on that show. He makes history everywhere he goes. I look forward to 2011 to see what wonderful things are in store for him.

    Thanks Kim for having this blog.
