OKAY IT'S IDOL TIME!! GOSH DARNIT!!

YO!
So this is the one all you peeps have been waiting for, am I right? It's the time for this year's American Idol finale. This is a tradition that's been going on for 8 years or some shit like that, and I will admit that last night was the first time I watched a finale since Rueben and Clay from season 2.

So this year we have two alpha males squaring off on the most popular show on TV.

Adam Lambert: the glamrocker (quoting Ryan Seacrest)

And

Kris Allen: The Acoustic Rocker (Quoting ryan seacrest)

This year is a tough call because honestly I think either one could win. Adam Lambert is often criticized by the judges for being too theatrical, but honestly, he can sing. And his specialty is high notes. On youtube.com you can listen to Adam's version of Feeling Good, and it is the muthafuckin shazaam if you know what I mean.

And in the other corner, we have Kris Allen, a very talented musician, who dazzled us last night with his piano and guitar skills. He also performs his music very well, and has the strong poise of an American Idol. He also looks like Marco from Degrassi...which is a plus.

So how did they do? Both did okay, but for their opening songs I wasn't really impressed with either one of them. I mean it is THE FINAL, and neither person performed a song that could truly showcase their voices. Adam went on to perform and awesome Sam Cook song, but I don't know if it carried him enough.
Going into the final I was definitely on Team Adam, but after last night I think Kris performed better.

QATFYG: Who is gonna win?

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
