How could this little muffin not win?! ‘Nuff effing said.
Now, before I’m showered with “he’ll be better off” comments, I must say that I have been hoping this show would finally get it right. What’s that? What about the other winners? Allow me to provide a run-down:
Season 1: Kelly Clarkson
The one and only deserving winner. However, she didn’t start to totally rule until she was released from her Idol shackles, and started telling Clive Davis to ‘suck it.’ Also, Clarkson v. Guarini=No contest.
Season 2: Ruben Studdard
Season 3: Fantasia Barrino
Jennifer Hudson=robbed (and she was voted off in week 6 of 11).
Season 4: Carrie Underwood
Country music fluke–George W. just got re-elected, so the nation was not really thinking straight.
Season 5: Taylor Hicks
C’mon. He’s got “headlining at Branson” written all over him.
Season 6: Jordin Sparks
Blake was adorable, and seriously Jordin is like mall pop twenty years too late.
Season 7: David Cook
Bleh. His performance on last night’s Idol finale bored me to tears (aka Thank God for Tivo)
Season fracking 8: Kris Allen
I’ve got nothing against him, but seriously–even he was shocked.
