Won American Idol!!!
And I hardly even helped! I voted for about an hour and a half last night and probably only got through maybe 10 times.
Why do I like him so much and what has this got to do with anything?
Well, I will be honest... he is very very cute. He is also very talented. I like his style - a lot.
What I like most though? His humility. He stood tonight - utterly shocked that he won. It was not an act.
We learn in AA that we have to be humble. And then it feels sometimes like the world kicks us down for that... but we have to do it anyway. I cannot be a jackass at work and talk about how great I am. I can stand up for myself when I need to, but I can't act arrogant like other people can, because the price I may end up paying is my life. This road gets very very narrow. My career may have suffered, but my soul is mostly intact, and that is what I need to worry about.
So, on American Idol, the judges didn't think Kris could win because of his lack of bravado- but he did. His music is good. And I like the kid. I love the fact that his wife, his mom and his dad are there at every show. I believe Kris is To Thine Own Self Be(ing) True. And I love that.
And I love that he won.
