Saint Dagame’s Sermon

Greetings one and all please allow me to introduce myself.  I am Saint Dagame, patron saint of reality shows as well as high priest of the Church of Gina Gershon and today starts a new era for the Yak.  This is the first of many sermons that I will be giving to you, my adoring congregation, so remember this day because it will be one you will rejoice for decades to come.

I have decided to make this first sermon about tainting victories.  Did Apollo Creed ruin Rcoky’s title win?  Did the Patriots come up with conspiracy theories when they lost the Superbowl to the Giants?  Did Arnold Jackson make up excuses why he lost his fight with The Gooch?  The answer to all of the above is a resounding no, yet so many of you out there want to taint Kris Allen’s victory over Adam Lambert on American Idol by coming up with crazy conspiracy theories and downright nonsense so I’m here to set you straight.

First things first, congratulations go out to Kris Allen, winner of American Idol, Season 8, 2009!!!! Kris bested front runner and judges lovechild Adam Lambert, talented in his own right, by capturing just a reported 1% more of the 100 MILLION PLUS votes cast after last night’s final performances.

When Is Enough Enough With American Idol?

[singlepic id=72 w=280 h=200 float=left] So we just had the showdown between Kris Allen and Adam Lambert on the finale of Season Eight of American Idol and I have to admit, despite media proclamations, this SHOULD  be a close race. But what I REALLY want to talk about here is the burning question of when is enough, enough with American Idol? The judges, the entire season, have been SO obvious in their idolistic adoration of Adam Lambert, it’s hard to imagine why the season was even allowed to continue. If the judges had their way they probably would’ve given the title to Adam weeks ago.

American Idol – Katy Perry… WTH?

Yes, I know I am late on this… but with all the hubbub of moving down to the final 2, Gokey leaving, and my other annoyances with the whole shebang, I completely let something slip from my mind, only to have it pop up again in my little brain today… and all I have to say is… WTF American Idol?

American Idol, Final Three

[singlepic ID=65 h=190 w=130 float=left] Tonight, we say a sad farewell to Allison Iraheta off of the Idol stage, leaving the final three of Danny Gokey, Adam Lambert and Kris Allen. Yes, I do call bullshit, but what can one do? The damage cannot be undone. However, I still believe that Allison will be bigger than any of those left. I still believe that she will own her career. She is a genuine rocker, and will spin this thing around quite quickly. If I could have picked a song for Allison to sing tonight to say goodbye? “So What” by Pink.

American Idol 4/28

Let me start by telling you, before I start my ramble about American Idol tonight, that we WILL be getting more writers for the site soon. Why am I telling you this? Well, I am pretty sure with the popularity of Adam Lambert, that you are getting kinda sick and tired of my rants about dislike for this guy. So, keep that in mind… new writers, many that love him just like you do, coming soon to a YakkityYaks near you.

Ok, time for my critique, not that I am the connoisseur, especially when it comes to Rat Pack night. I am a pure rocker chick at heart… so this one is a little hard for me. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some Frank and Dean sometimes. But… FRANK and DEAN, not people singing Frank and Dean. I thought I was gonna be bored, and sometimes I was… just not as bored as I thought I would be. We will start with:

Kris Allen – The Way You Look Tonight – Kris did okay. I wasn’t overly impressed, but wasn’t throwing things at the TV either. That has to be a good thing right? I don’t want my TV to look like those phony YouTube videos of the Wii remote cracking the screen. I mean, that would suck! Wait… I got off track there. Oh yeah, Kris… ummm… Decent start to the show I guess.

American Idol 4/22

[singlepic ID=53 h=130 w=190 float=left] Yeah ok so Anoop and Lil went buh bye.  I think that was the best choice, although I would still like to see Adam go to Broadway already.  Yeah yeah, I know, everyone loves him.  Well, not everyone, everyone but me apparently.  Anyway………….  The big “shocker” to come out of…
