American Idol Winner

Last night, Lee DeWyze was named the winner of the 9th American Idol competition… wait, didn’t he win the past two years? Oh, sorry, that was Kris Allen and David Cook. Some times I mix up people when they look and sound identical.

I think the real question here is if Idol is even able to choose someone different anymore. I have nothing against Lee, Kris, or David, but they are completely interchangeable and cookie cutter.

I think it is time for American Idol to take a break between competitions, maybe a year or two, and then come back fresh. This could give a crop of new singers that haven’t tried out for the show every year for the past few, could give time for people to forget about the recently retired Simon, and could maybe, just maybe produce a winner that is not identical to the past few years. In the very least, it might give past winners the time to grow as artists and not be over shadowed by the next season of the competition.

Have Cook and Allen even released albums? Oh, I blinked and missed them?

Better late than never?  Happy Monday!
