American Idol Is Finally Good For Something

No matter what the outcome in tonight's American Idol finale, I am a fan of both guys.

Ann Powers wrote a fantastic LA Times article about AI's "Bigger Message" this year. In it she talks about how Kris Allen and Adam Lambert are about as different as 2 singers can be. Kris is from Arkansas while Glambert hails from San Diego. Adam likes to rock, Kris turns rap songs into ballads. What I like most is how Kris and Adam have interacted with each other.

If you subscribe to the old guard's views on how Christians should deal with people who have differing beliefs, Kris should be marching outside Adam's hotel room with a sign condemning his behavior. It's good to see Kris is above that sort of hate mongering.

Instead of butting heads, the 2 roommates have become friends. Treating each other with respect and dignity. Imagine that! It's good to see. Warms the cockles of my heart.
