We admit it, we are American Idol fans. It is the topic of “water cooler” conversation on Wednesday and Thursday starting in January, every year. We love the “Bad” people. We swoon over the cuties (each year we realize how much grosser that gets, as we get older, and they get younger!). We argue over the top 12 (errr…13, this year), then top 10, 5, 3, and finally, who is going to win.
This year the office was divided. I had my heart set on Danny Gokey from the minute he tried out in Jacksonville and was super excited when he made it all the way to number 3 (a mere “poor song choice” knocked him out, but I have faith that he will be back!). Diana was extremely upset when her dream hunk, Matt Giraud was kicked off. She swore she was not going to watch it anymore! TC (and the majority of the office) was rooting for Adam Lambert all the way. None of us ever imagined that Kris Allen would be the winner, but once my Danny got the axe, I was rooting for Kris. He had me at “Heartless”. His rendition of Kanye West’s song was just amazing! I even downloaded the song off iTunes and have been playing it every day on my commute into le•top!
