    I hope he wins!!!!!
    I can’t stop thinking about it…

  3. Not even close..Adam is and always has been the Idol for season 8..The only reason to watch.Amazing talent. The best thing to come along since the 60’s.

  4. NO BOUNDARIES : COMMENTS BY JUDGES
    ADAM LAMBERT-
    Randy said: You can anything. You can sing the phone book. Wasn’t my favorite performance. It was a bit pitchy. Kara said: I am moved and I am proud. Thank you for giving me that moment. Paula said: Adjectives can’t express what you have brought to season 8. I am in awe. You can sing whatever you want to sing and I will be a fan forever. Simon said: I won’t judge the song, I will judge you. You have been one of the best and most original contestants we have ever had. You are a star.

    kRIS aLLEN-

    Randy said: You should be proud of what you have done in this competition. You have done amazing and I think that song fits your voice better than Adam’s. Kara said: I don’t want you to be judged on that song, it was to high. I hope people vote on the season. Paula said: You have done an amazing job to end up where you are. I wish you the best of luck. Simon said: I think your highlight tonight was the first song you did. You deserve to be standing on this stage tonight.

    Go go go adam lambert!!!

  5. Adam Lambert- Mad world
    Randy said: I love that you showed your sensitive side. I give that an A+. Kara said: I am so happy you chose that performance. You are an incredible artist. You rocked it again tonight. Paula said: I am proud you are standing on that stage right now. This is your moment. A great song for you. Still haunting. Way to start the show. Simon said: I always thought this was your best performance but tonight was a little bit theatrical. It reminded me of Phantom of The Opera.

    Kris Allen- Ain’t no sunshine

    Randy said: I love that I can tell what kind of artist you are. That was one of your best performances here on this stage. Kara said: I agree with Randy. You have a way with creating an intimate bond with everyone in the audience. Paula said: You awakened the spirit in all of us. Simon: This is a competition. When your name was announced last week, I wasn’t sure America made the right choice but I take it back after that performance.

  6. adam lambert- a change is gonna come
    Randy said: What you did was show the real reason you are here. You can sing your face off. Kara said: That may have been your best performance since the start of this competition.Unbelievable. Paula said: That was the best I have ever heard. Unbelievable. You are going to be iconic. Simon said: You are 100% back in the game.

    kris allen- what’s going on marvin gaye

    Randy said: We have a real live duel going on. A great song choice but it was a little bit light for this point in the competition. Kara said: You have been true to yourself since day 1. You can uplift people. Paula said: You tore that song up. Simon said: I love the song but it was like 3 friends in their bedroom strumming along to Marvin Gaye. To laid back for a night like this.

    go go go adam lambert, you got the best performance my idol!!!!

  7. AMERICA, VOTE FOR ADAM LAMBERT. HE IS THE BEST IN THIS COMPETITION….

    GO GO GO MY IDOL, YOU ARE ICONIC AS PAULA HAD SAID!!!

    HIS VOICE IS BEAUTIFUL, A TRUE ARTISTE!! WE HAVE NOT SEEN SUCH STAGE PRESENCE, STYLE, GRACE, AND STAR POWER IN MANY YEARS…ADAM LAMBERT WILL BE THE MOST SUCCESSFUL IDOL WINNER EVER!!! ADAM WE LOVE YOU!!!

  9. ADAM LAMBERT HAS TO BE THE AMERICAN IDOL .HE IS ALSO CANADIENE IDOL ,WORLD IDOL .HE IS OUR NEXT ,ELVIS ,JAGER ,STIVEN TYLER ,OSIE OSBORN ,GUNS & ROSES,LARA FABIANI ,& BARBARA STRAISAND ..OLL ROLED IN TIO ONE .THERE WILL BE SOME DOLL IDOL ,IF IT RETURNES NEXT YEAR .LEAVE IT ON THIS HYEST NOTE -THANK YOU ADAM

    • please let go american idol .let the show go .it went with adam .anywhere in the world ,every 25 years there is a idol born .not everyyear .it is ower .so some can sing .so can I ,SO CAN U ….SOOOOOOOOOOWHAT !!!!!!!!I LOVE DIOGARDY!GET HER BECK IF U GOING TO DO THIS GRULING SHOW AGAIN .

  10. This was good show last night. It is going to be so hard to decide. Both Kris and Adam are good. But either way…May the best man win!! Someone looses and someone will be the next American Idol. Such a good group this year. I wish them all the best in their singing careers. Another year GONE!!!

  11. Kris was great with the 1st song, but didn’t have the range and power for the 2nd, and was exposed as a weak whiney voice on the 3rd. He was in the best position to end the show with a memorable wow, but it came crashing down with a forgetable dud. Not a good way to finish the exclamation point at the end of a sentence.

    Adam was consistent with the 1st as in his previous performance, but with some holding back on going all out on the high note. He rocked the 2nd with a booming rendition. He nailed the 3rd and made Kara and the co-writers proud.

    Round 1 – Kris
    Round 2 – Adam
    Round 3 – Adam

    Overall – Adam

  12. I love underdogs…..I hope KRIS ALLEN wins the competition. Since day 1 ADAM LAMBERT is the best vocally, very obvious. But, who is the most popular? Remember, this is a popularity contest.

  13. Once again it was ADAM all the way.
    I do give kudos to Kris, for an excellent performance in his 1st song, “Aint No Sunshine When Shes Gone”. It truly was an excellent performance, and in my mind he proved he has earned his place in the finals, 2nd place. I totally respect both of these young men. I feel with time and training Kris will definitely improve. ADAM, YOU TRULY ARE AN AMERICAN IDOL. ABSOLUTELY THEE BEST I HAVE EVER SEEN IN ANY OF THE IDOL COMPETITIONS, AS RANDY SAID,’YOU COULD SING THE PHONE BOOK’…. ADAM HAS DOMINATED ALL SEASON. BOTH OF THESE YOUNG MEN DESERVE OUR RESPECT. I ONLY HOPE THAT PEOPLE VOTED HONESTLY, ON TALENT AND NOT FOR VENGEANCE OR SEXUAL PREFERANCE. TO DO ANYTHING LESS WOULD ONLY TARNISH BOTH OF THESE MEN’S EXCELLENT PERFORMANCES.
    ADAM SHOWED HIS SOFT SIDE TONIGHT, TRULY MESMORIZING, AS KRIS HIMSELF STATED THEY WANTED TO PUT ON A GOOD SHOW FOR THE FANS, MORE SO THAN COMPETING THEY MAINTAINED A RESPECTFUL RELATIONSHIP THROUGHOUT THE EVENING. WHILE I STILL BELIEVE WITHOUT A DOUBT, THAT ADAM SHOULD BE AND IN MY OPINION IS #1. Kris absolutely deserves #2.

  14. i am so thrilled while wtaching adam’s performance. he was the excellent and brilliant performer. i cant find any better adjective to express this.

    adam lambert should be the american idol.

    kris is good for number 2 spot.

  15. Now….I’ll be like Simon…… a long wollen coat and a screamer ? Shoould that me the next
    American Idol or should he be on a Broadway Stage ? Low key..nice looking…easy to listen to both song-wise and musician-wise …
    that’s the wiser choice for what the American music industry needs.

  16. randy jackson gave adam lambert an A+ rating hahahaha….

    i wish it will be translated into votes.

    go go go my idol, adam lambert.

  17. I hope Adam wins hands down, Kris is ok but Adam has what it takes to be an American idol. Kara should have kept that stupid song she wrote to herself. It was a joke!!! Of couse Adam can make anything sound good.

  18. A agree with you Jean. Kara’s song didn’t do anything for them.It was dissapointing.
    Adam was great, Very powerful!

  19. What a train wreck that third song was! It didn’t showcase either of their voices and I don’t think either enjoyed singing it. Kris sings more heartfelt, but Adam deserves to win. Although didn’t think his performance of “Mad World” was as good as he had done earlier in the show.

  20. For me, Kris won Round 1.

    Buit round 2 and 3 definitely goes to adam lambert.

    He was very splendid in his performances.

    america pls. dont stop voting for adam lambert.

    he has to be the next american idol. he has the IT factor which is necessary for success.

  21. Honestly, I wish that NEITHER of these boys had to win because if they win, their first single is going to be a god awful song that does NOTHING for either of them.

  22. Sorry Adam and Kris fans but, I really thought last night’s finale was B-O-R-I-N-G. I have watched other American Idol finales and this one by far was not a favorite. At one point I actually changed the channel for a bit. I thought their performances was same old, same old, Adam screaming, Kris just ordinary. Samo judges comments repeating same comments. Can’t wait for tonight to see the other idol contestants in the group performances. Also, Kara needs to settle down, lol, Randy needs to stop booing EVERY time Ryan introduces Simon, he was always my favorite judge but now he’s starting to get on my nerves. I think the show is going down hill fast.

  23. Last night was very interesting. I think it is going to be a very close call. Even Dial Idol has it very close with only 1.1% difference between them.They list Kris above Adam, but it’s anybodys game really. My preference is for Kris, but that’s just because I like his style better.

    Can’t wait for the results show tonight!

  24. KRIS IS THE BEST. KRIS IS THE SEASON 8 AMERICAN IDOL. HE SHOWED HIS ARTISTRY. DANNY COULD HAVE BEEN THE WINNER FOR THE FINAL SONG COZ IT FITS TO HIS VOCALS. FINALE SONG IS SOMETHING INSPIRATIONAL, NOT A ROCK SONG. WHY? COZ IT BOILS DOWN TO PERFECT VOCALS. KRIS VOCALS FITS THAT SONG. IT COULD BE A SABBOTAGE COZ THE RANGE IS SO HIGH FOR KRIS RANGE.

  25. ANYWAY, NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS. AMERICA VOTED FOR KRIS TO WIN. IF ADAM FOR TALENT, KRIS GOT THE TALENT & POPULARITY. KRIS GOT THE CROWN!!!! DIAL IDOL HAS THE HIGHER PERCENTAGE. KRIS AND DANNY FANS HAS JOINED THAT MAKES KRIS THE WINNER. KRIS THEY CAN NOT TEAR YOU DOWN COZ YOU SHOWED AMERICA YOU ARE WHOLESOME & AWESOME. IF IT IS BY TALENT, ADAM SHOULD HAVE JOINED THE AMERICAS GOT TALENT.

  26. I AM SO HAPPY THAT KRIS IS ON TOP OF THE VOTES. HOPEFULLY, HE WILL BE SUCCESSFUL FOR HIS RECORDINGS.

  27. Everyone is WAY underestimating Kris and the amount of votes he received last night. I haven’t voted since Season 2 – and I made a point of voting for Kris last night for 2 straight hours as many times as I could get through, and I haven’t voted all season. I know several others who did the same. Even if Adam does win, it will be a very narrow victory. I’d be willing to bet that this is going to be the closest vote they have ever had on AI. And reallly, it doesn’t matter who get “the title”. The winner gets strapped down with an AI contract, so I guess “winning” is all in how you perceive a “win”. The true test is when their album hits the shelves. Who’s gonna sell? My bet is that Kris has far more appeal and will sell many more albums than Adam. Not that Adam isn’t talented…he is incredibly talented, but I personally feel that his music isn’t very relevant for today. He seems rather old school metal/hard rock to me. Been there, done that…not interested anymore in hearing people screech their lyrics. Did that enough in the 80’s.

  28. KIM, 100% AGREE. KRIS APPEAL IS FOR THIS CURRENT MUSIC INDUSTRY TO MAKES RECORDS. HE GOT IT ALL BABY. ADAM IS TALENTED, NO QUESTION BUT IM NOT SURE IF EVERYBODY WILL LIKE HIM. UNLESS FANS WILL BUY ADAMS RECORDS THOUSANDS PER HOUSEHOLD TO MAKE IT ON THE TOP OF BILLBOARDS.

  29. WE VOTED FOR KRIS FOR 4 LONG HOURS UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE. HOPE OUR VOTES WILL COUNT. VIVA KRISTOPHER NEIL ALLEN.

  30. ADAM IS PREDICTABLE. REFRAIN OR CHORUS OF THE SONG IS ALWAYS FULL OF SCREAMS. IF YOU REMOVE THE SCREAMS, ADAM WOULD BE BORING. I AM ALWAYS WAITING FOR THE HIGH NOTES AND ANTICIPATING WHAT HE GONNA DO. LISTENING TO HIM IS NOT FUN PROBABLY OVER FAMILIARITY. SORRY.

  31. TO END THIS SEASON: LET ME CLARIFY PEOPLE THAT ADAM IS NOT A ROCK GOD COZ HE DOES NOT EVEN KNOW HOW TO PLAY ELECTRIC GUITAR OR ANY INSTRUMENTS. HE IS A THEATRICAL ARTIST, NO DOUBT. HE CAN USE THE LIGHTS, SMOKES, DRESS, NAIL POLISH, EYELINER TO CAPTIVATE PEOPLE. I WISH I COULD SEE HIM SING ACAPELA.

  32. Even if Adam doesn’t win…he will go very far….won’t need to go any where…..he is tied to AI for 1 year that is the contract they sign…………….

  33. I THINK ADAM AND KRIST ARE VERY WELL , but Krist are older than Adam . I ‘m not hate Krist but Adam will be a very well singer because he can make wonderful of his song

  34. I did not like the last song that was co-written by Kara. It was hard to sing and didn’t leave me wanting to ever hear it again. It needs some help! I hope both Adam and Kris keep humble and do well in their singing careers.

    Let’s end today on a positive note no matter who wins the most votes. I thought Kris and Adam had the right attitude last night, stating that they were not competing but wanted to give good performances.

    Good luck Kris and Adam!

  35. I voted for Kris last night, well tried. Me and my best friend tried for 2 hours and NEVER got through. I honestly like rock music much better than anything, but there is something about Kris that just draws you in. He’s incredibly talented. And his performance of ‘Ain’t No Sunshine When She’s Gone’, WOW! So heart-felt and emotional. He’s a gifted soul.

  36. That last song that Kara wrote is atrocious. That song won’t sell. But, Kris sounded terrible trying to sing it. Kris’s best song is Ain’t no sunshine and Adam has many. I voted as much as I could get through for Adam. He hopefully will blow Kris out of the water!

  37. adam lambert is the best this season.

    he will win american idol.

    american idol would be nothing if adam lambert will not win.

    he was so perfect and faultless in all his performances.

    and i love and gooble all his screaming, they make me so excited here listening to jis long long long screams hahahahaha…. wondering if his voice will be cut short. but he really had a high vocal range and its incredible.

    i voted many times for my idol adam lambert.

    i also voted in behalf of stephanie from the philippines. though my redial sucks but i was able to votes as high as 500 only. im sorry mary anne and phyllis. i hope you had doubled your effort there. i was frustrated here cuz i couldnt get thru.

    go go go adam lambert. you are the next american idol.

  38. Well to me the 1st song Adam done was great the other 2 sucked! too much screaming. Kris on the other hand was awesome with all 3 of his songs! I hope he wins tonight!!!!

    The song Cara co-wrote sounded much better with Kris Singing it!!!! I would buy that one!

    We will see who comes out on top tonight – Didn’t think Kris would make it to the top 2 – but he did 🙂 and now he’s going all the way to the TOP!!! GO KRIS

  39. judas: you keep on bashing adam lambert. it seems you yourself is a gay one.

    only gay people love to bash cuz if you are man enough, you wont say those nasty things anymore.

    so what about it now? what if adam will win and you wont buy his records? so what? you keep on yakking against adam, you sound like a dickweed.

  40. kris is good too but he is not star material lol….

    adam is a screamer ? duh… you call belting as screaming? very funny indeed.

    well, sad to say this screamer whose name is adam lambert is going to be the next american idol!!!

    Go adam lambert!!! you are now the world idol…

    as paula abdul had said, you are ICONIC!

  41. I alo agree that the song Kara wrote for the guys was horrible, it was like trying to compare apples to oranges with their different voices. Adam could hit those high notes (if that’s what you want to call it) where Kris has a lower range. It was all designed for Adam to be able to sing the song.

    My hats off to either one of these guys. I wish next year that they don’t show case one person throughout the whole season. That was so unfair to everyone else in the cast. If that happens I won’t be watching it. I believe alot of people got turned off to AI because of that very thing.

    I was so glad that on DWTS the underdog Shawn won. Way to go. Let’s see what happens tonight on AI.

    Both of these young men will go far no matter what happens.

  42. brooklyn, hey baby doll…. last night performances of adam lambert was so awesome…. in fact randy jackson gave him a rating of A+. wow, that was simply great.

    his vocals really mesmerized me last night. I couldnt keep off my eyes from him while he was singing. ‘ mad world’ was a wise choice for him, man, i love that great and outstanding vocals.

    adam lambert will surely be the next american idol!!! he is the greatest and a ROCK GOD!

  43. judas: try telling that to Kara dioguardi that adam lambert is not rock god cuz it was kara who gave him that title. if you are aggrieved, file a protest before AI hahahaha…

    but to criticize adam lambert as not fitted to be given that title, who are you anyway? why are so opinionated? why dont you also audition with AI and join the competition instead of mocking and criticizing adam lambert here.

    besides, your post is too late now. our minds are set for adam lambert only and we will never switch our votes to kris allen.

    go go go our world idol…. adam lambert!

    he is ROCK GOD 🙂

  44. GO GO GO ADAM LAMBER YOU ARE THE BEST IN THIS COMPETITION.

    YOU ARE THE AMERICAN IDOL 🙂

  45. Well, my first choice was Danny Gokey. I like Kris a lot and I hope if the Danny fans are smart they will vote for Kris. Adam has a good voice but such a screamer….that tongue makes me ill. Adam, like Simon said, looks like he is trying out for Phantom of the Opera…maybe he should consider Broadway. I would never buy his album not that it matters much. Just not my choice.

  46. I Like Kris.. But..
    Yeah! Adam is completely in a different league..
    Adam is the American Idol!!

  47. I agree that the song Kara wrote was horrible…I think she should not be one of the judges next year….just my opinion.

  48. Uhmmm .. I don’t like Kris , he looks very old
    althought he ‘s 23 or 24 years old . But he sings very well . Anywhere , I very very like
    Adam .He ‘s really cool and his song are wonderful

  49. I am a Kris fan, just cuz he has captivated me. I almost think it would be better for him to NOT win the title. That way his first single wouldn’t be that awful song that Kara “co-wrote.” I would give her a D- for her song writing skills for sure.

  50. congrats 4 kris if he finally wins! (coz dialidol shows that kris wins by 1 percent difference or so)

    well at least adam wont have 2 sing that ‘winning’ song and put it in his album!! XDD

    anyway… even tho he doesnt win AI… as i said be4, hez a winner already! n im sure he’ll be BIG!! he has many fanz around d world 2 support him! probably hez just not meant 2 b… in america!! XD

    Go ADAM!! dont worry, whatever happens, u r goin 2 b THE NEXT BIG THING!! ^-^

  51. I don’t think last night changed anyone’s mind; everyone was going to vote for who they like throughout the season but even Kris fan must agree that last nights show was won by Adam. That last song was all wrong for him! He should have totally changed if he couldn’t sing it.
    Like Adam did during country week!

  52. What was Kara thinking when writing that song? I think the lyrics are ok, but that actual melody is terrible. I would not buy it no matter who sings it!

  53. Oh i really hope Adam wins!!

    He deserves it a million times more than Kris!!!!

    DialIdol is wrong sometimes, ya know??

  54. Because the voting system is so flawed, it is anyones guess who will win. As many have opined on here, it is about who can get as many dials in for their favorite in the 4 hours allotted.

    A poll on Dial Idol shows 51% for Adam and 49% for Kris and it is that close – either way.

    Based on last nights performances, I agree with #17 Thomas that Kris took round 1 but did not do well afterwards.

    The song choices by Simon Fuller were not exactly inspiring but Adam did better than Kris whose performance was a little limp for a final show.

    The “Coronation” song was awful but for those who said it was written for Adam and too high for Kris, you can have any song transposed to a key that suits your vocal range.

    Given this was the final, I was disappointed because it started well but fell off and there was no grand finale with the last song.

    If “No Boundaries” was the best song written, I shudder to think what the others were like.

    Whatever happens, both have a future in the business but I do believe that Adam will have a more global success.

  55. Kara’s song showed 1 glaring point..kris cant sing any song outside of his comfort zone. Adam sang 3 songs of 3 different categories. AI needs a Lamber win to survive. If kris wins, then you might as well change the competition name to No Talent? No Problem. Only chauvanist church goers allowed to vote.

  56. Go Kris Go!! Kris should win, he has been always very sweet vocally and he is better than Adam. He has very nice personality too..I cant stand shouting Adam

  57. Quote from Dial Idol site

    Wednesday May 20, 2009

    Predictions are too close to call this week! This is the first time this has ever happened for an American Idol finale in the history of DialIdol.com. No matter what conclusions you draw from DialIdol’s predictions – think again!

  58. Adam is a homosexual. What teeny poppers want to fantasize about yet another gay pop star? His incessant screaming is tiring and annoying. If that is all listeners have to look forward to then he is about as tiring as listening to an alley cat. Comparing this loser to Tallarico is a sin!

  59. Anyones choice of lifestyle should not matter in their music although I am not an Adam fan… Look at Elton John…how many of you buy his music…he is awesome.

  60. After last night’s performance if you people are still trying to cover up Kris and say Adam screams then you lied to yourself. Of course singers have to sing the same song in every singing COMPETITION. Judges want to challenge a tough song to know who has the true talent. That’s the point. If Kris can’t sing that song exposed his limitation and vocal capability, period. Don’t blame the song or writer. I doubt any other tough song pick will do much difference.

  61. I don’t think they were allowed to change Kara’s song up all too much. I don’t think that Adam would be able to sing a song in a “low” key. Just like Kris didn’t do as well with a “high” key. I think the purpose was them to sing it exactly in the same key and everything. I think Kara caterred to Adam’s key a little bit more than Kris’s key. To tell the honest truth, I don’t think EITHER did a good job with her song. Her song just plain sucked.

  62. helowwww a lot of girls like adam eventho hez gay! we dont care!! hes hot and hez an amazing singer!! his gayness or whatever has nothing 2 do with it!!

  63. kendall, adam CAN sing in low key! he just doesnt use it in AI!! u sud check out his performance b4 AI when he sings ‘crazy’ (if im not mistaken) there are a lot of different versions, hope u can find d right one!
    he sings in low key when he invites the audience to sing along! n let me tell u his lower range is also incredible! so yes!! he can sing high n low! XD

  64. Whar a performance from Adam, I watched the show online from England on my computer, ADAM YOU ARE OUR NEXT AMERICAN AND WORLD IDOL, CANNOT WAIT TO PURCHASE YOUR MUSIC, WE LOVE YOU.

  65. A CHANGE IS GONNA COME!! ADAM D DARING ARTIST WILL B THE NEXT BIG THING!! REGARDLESS WINNING AI OR NOT!! u ppl just hv 2 accept that!! XDD

  66. Just one more thing, Simon please bring Adam to London then we can have the pleasure of his performances live.

  67. WHY PEOPLE ASKING ADAM TO MAKE A SHOW, HE’S BEEN MAKING HIS SHOW, STAGE ACTOR, THEATRICAL -HELLO. WE ARE TALKING ABOUT WHO IS MARKETABLE. BOTH ARE TALENTED IN THEIR OWN WAYS, IN THEIR OWN GENRE. KRIS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING, SOULFUL AND IT CONNECTS TO PEOPLE, GREAT PERSONALITY. PEOPLE ARE UNCERTAIN WHO GONNA WIN THIS SEASON COZ KRIS IS REALLY A DARK HORSE!!!!!

  68. helloww!! judas! we are entitled 2 our own opinion!

    STOP FORCING UR FAVE 2 US!! WE WILL NEVER CHANGE OUR OPINION ABOUT ADAM!! HEZ OUR FAVE!! OK!

  69. I didn’t mean to say he couldn’t, it’s just not his fortay…..just like the high key is not Kris’s fortay.

  70. LEONA LEWIS WON IN POP IDOL. KRIS WILL WIN AMERICAN IDOL. SUSAN BOYLE WON BRITAIN GOT TALENT. HOPE ADAM WILL CONSIDER TO JOIN AMERICA GOT TALENT.

  71. OF COURSE, NOBODY WILL CHANGE THEIR FAVS COZ THE RESULT IS OVER…. KRIS WILL GET THE CROWN. HOPE, ADAM FANS WILL RECOVER SOON. BECAREFUL. GET WELL SOON.

  72. SIMON BRING ADAM TO LONDON TO JOIN THE LES MISERABLES OR PHANTOM OF OPERA, THEY ARE IN NEED OF TALENT.

  73. JUDAS IM SO TIRED SEEING U BASHING ADAM… BUT I DONT CARE… SAY WHAT U WANT!! WE’LL JUST SEE WHAT HAPPENS NEXT!

    ADAM DOESNT NEED TO WIN TO BE A STAR! THATZ HOW GREAT HE IS!!

    ANYWAY SAY ANTHING THAT U WANT… WE’LL JUST SEE WHO WILL LAUGH D LAST!

    ENJOY BASHING ADAM! U JUST MAKE A FOOL OF URSELF! I WONT GET AS LOW AS U R N START BASHING ON KRIS… SO AGAIN… ENJOY!

  74. How you can compare Leona Lewis to Kris, she a much better singer then Kris, face facts Judas, ADAM IS THE AMERICAN IDOL, THE WORLD WIDE IDOL, WE WANT HIM TO START TOURING.

  75. I honestly think that neither of the gentlemen, Kris of Adam, NEED to win the title to be a star. I think they have already started this footprints on their music careers. Both are extremely talented. I honestly am a Kris fan, and I won’t bash Adam. I hate it when people bash the gentlemen, either way. Don’t bash someone that has a gift! Both of these boys are extremely gifted! It’s amazing to see how much they’ve changed and grown since their first auditions.

  76. thank u kendall!! datz what i want, i wish we can support our fave without bashing on each other…

    i just wish also there are more people like u here! >_<!

    good luck 4 d both of us kendall! good luck 4 adam n kris! XDD

  77. I think we need a “A Worst Song of the Season” Award to present Kara…for “No Boundaries” Anyone else agree??

    GO ADAM!!

  78. #77 You need to keep your appointment with your therapist and it is time to take your pill..

    GO ADAM!!!

  79. Mary Anne-Nashville-I agree with you, what an awful song, even Simon criticised the song, how on earth they allowed that to happen?

  80. If you are a fan of someone who feels compelled to scream in every song then I can see why you would like Adam…Kris is by far the more talented of the two and I can’t agree more that I hope Kris doesn’t win…that song was written by Kara with Adam in mind…totally sabotaged Kris. Kris will have a better and bigger career than Adam.
    Kris should win but those who have no ear or eye for talent look like they are voting for Adam.

  81. I’m a huge Kris Allen fan! Let Adam go ahead and win it, because this way Kris can go and make his millions singing the songs he wants to, not the ones American Idol tells him to! Good luck to both guys!

  82. I just noticed at the bottom of this site:
    Kara Wins Most Horrid Idol Anthem Award…LOL…for real

    Go ADAM!!

  83. Neither one of them will get judge on that song alone, cosideration is given to all the performances so far, look at the one who has consistently outperformed the others, at the end the one that performed that song better is Adam because he has the range. I pressume they decided to give them that song so that they can test everything with their vocals. My vote is for Adam.

  84. ADAM has been headlines in every paper, every news show from the beginning…At that first audition, I knew he was so very Special..Head and shoulders above all the others…Such a Wonder Boy…

    All over the world, he is known as simply “ADAM”…He has become a household word…All the judges clearly see this..He has just been “The Mega Star” from the very beginning…So many of the others so ordinary and then there was ADAM…Not since Elvis (and I have been a lifelong Elvis fan) and yes, I do compare ADAM to Elvis, like it or not,have I seen anything that could come near him until now…

    If they should decide to give this award to Kris, I’m wondering about the complete breakdown of American Idol..They have gotten it wrong before but never in my 8 years of watching, has there ever been a contestant with the gigantic International appeal ADAM has..If it happens, it will be interesting to see how they handle giving it to someone besides ADAM!!

  85. I think both are talented, however, I think Kris has grown more thoughout this competition. He most definetly has come out of his shell a little bit and realized that he is an amazing singer…..he needs to BELIEVE that. I think he finally does.

  86. Mary-Anne:

    I think you are not being open-minded by saying that if Adam does not win, that you wonder about the breakdown of American Idol. This is a competition that is voted by America. Simply that. If American votes more for Kris, than that is to say that there were more viewers that are Kris fans, plain and simple. Same thing is if Adam is to win, more viewers that are Adam fans. It isn’t the show that determines the winner, it is us as Americans. Either way I can tell you this, both of these talented gentlemen will have HUGE, successful music careers. I am very proud of those of them. It takes a lot to do what the do. Kris has international appeal, Adam has international appeal. They will fit into the music business AMAZINGLY, and will be wonderful.

  87. Hi all. I’m back and managed to catch the the show last night but only managed to get in 4 votes in 3 hours voting – frustrating to say the least. I hope that means that the other Adam fans were burning it up.

    I think Simon summed it up for Adam last night and he does know a little about the music industry.

    I hope Adam wins but if not he has all the potential to be an international star for years to come.

  88. HI Frank,
    Only 4 votes???? Oh well,Voting was tough last night for me also,didn’t get my first vote in until a half hour into the four hours.I got somewhere between 575-600 votes in as the night went on with most in the last two hours.

    I guess we can just wait until tonite and see what happens:)

  89. Chris, last night was the first night I couldn’t get through for at least a couple of hundred votes. After travelling all day, 3 hours was all the time I could spend last night.

    It’s all over but the shouting so we’ll see.

  90. Hi, Frank. yes, voting was slow..I had 3 phones on automatic redial but was getting lots of busy signals..I was only getting through about every 3rd call on each of them.It got better as time went on..I voted until the closing..I got in between 600-700 votes…I still think this is a very poor way to decide American Idol…No contest except a voting contest… Oh well, it is what it is…Go ADAM!!

  91. It was the most busy signals I ever got so I just blamed it on people you and all the other adam fans here.LOL

  92. I say good luck to both adam and kris tonite.At the end of the show when these two guys stood there and pointed fingers at each other telling america who to vote for said it all!!!!!

  93. Hi Mary Anne. Trust you’re back home now also. Now I know why I couldn’t get through – LOL – thanks for taking up the slack.

  94. Kendall, on the contrary, I’m very open minded..I just never have seen a contestant on AI with the huge International Appeal that ADAM has and I have watched all 8 seasons..I also know that it really is not a talent contest, it is a voting contest and I feel it is flawed, but it is what it is so, I’ll deal with it…I’m one of those “mature” ADAM Lovers, you know….So I’m Tough!!

    GO ADAM!!

  95. Of course, we have to wait two hours tonight for the last 2 minutes when they will finally announce…Actually my paper says FOX News will not be on until 9 minutes after so they will go over again tonight…

  96. And, if it’s like some of the other results nights the performers will not be nearly as good as the contestants were.

  97. Frank, yes, I’m back home..Did you get to see the entire show last night?? I thought ADAM was awesome, as always….Would love to see him win tonight..It won’t be the end of ADAM if he does not but I just hate to see him lose after he has been the Favorite all this time..But if he does not win, he will still be the International Mega Star!! GO ADAM!!

  98. The Great Defender!! HELLO!!

    Ello, to Mary Anne, also. 😀

    Haven’t seen YL…

    Anyway, anybody been on zabasearch? They give you the true results early! And guess who won!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 Heeheehee… We broke a record!! 100 million votes cast!!

  99. Mary Anne, yes, I did manage to see the entire show. I don’t think Adam’s Mad World was as good as the first time around – but how do you beat perfection. I agree with Simon that the dry ice affect and Adam moving around distracted from the the song this time. It was still much better than the original artist in my opinion.

    His second song was awesome and even though the third song wasn’t anything to write home about he showed his versatility and did the song justice even though the song didn’t do him justice.

  100. Hi JAG. Now Mary Anne, who would have ever guessed who you want to win;-}

  101. Just another Glambert: Hey there…Yep, I bet it was 100 million…I had 3 phones going the entire time, on automatic redial….I had never done that before and I’ll never do it again but ADAM was just too Special…..
    GO ADAM!!

  102. Ditto on that last song for both of them…The song itself was the pits!! But look at the songwriter!! I have never cared for Kara as a Judge..She just goes on and on and says nothing…They need to give Simon more time but he is a man of few words…

  103. haha Adam IS too special!! I used two phones and voted for I don’t even know how long!! I can’t wait for tonight.

    Can’t wait for the smile on Adam’s face when he gets his crown. 😀

  104. #127

    by the way I’ve been waiting for some one to call me that!! haha I’ve been on these sites for 3 weeks or so and you are the first!! 🙂

  105. I honestly think that neither of the gentlemen, Kris of Adam, NEED to win the title to be a star. I think they have already started this footprints on their music careers. Both are extremely talented. I honestly am a Kris fan, and I won’t bash Adam. I hate it when people bash the gentlemen, either way. Don’t bash someone that has a gift! Both of these boys are extremely gifted! It’s amazing to see how much they’ve changed and grown since their first auditions.

    thank u kendal!

    Go Kris!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  106. Kara is over the top but at least she makes more sense than Paula. She’s definitely not your typical Duke girl. Of course if Paula left and Kara and Simon sat next to each other there would be blood.

    Simon for all of his arrogance does usually call it as it is. I think he was unusually kind to Kris last night but still obviously thinks Adam is special.

  107. JAG, I just checked out that zabasearch.com site…How cool are those headlines??

    ADAM WINS AMERICAN IDOL
    (100 Million Votes Cast)….I love it…

    GO ADAM – WORLD IDOL!!!

  108. Heehee I KNOW!!

    Greater than 56% to 44%!!!

    WHOOP WHOOP!!

    I wonder which contestant we like…? 😀

  109. Yes, Paula is the origional Space Cadet..Rarely makes any sense at all…and acts like a 3rd grader most of the time..

    Yes, Simon was very kind to Kris last night, but he is definitely a huge ADAM fan!!

  110. Oooh yes but I saw a short clip of Simon on this celebrity show today and Simon said, “I’m calling it for Kris.” It was taken today… Kinda odd. All along Simon’s been saying Adam would win… ??

  111. All of you ADAM Lovers: Check out the zabasearch website..They have declared ADAM winner…Gorgeous, beautiful headlines:

    ADAM WINS AMERICAN IDOL
    (100 Million Votes Cast)

    You will love it!! GO ADAM – WORLD IDOL!!

  112. I think it was a Toss up on the 1st round – cuz both the guys did very well!
    But rounds 2 & 3 for me went to Kris.
    I am not an Adam fan – but I was mesmerized by his “Mad World” very well done! If he would sing like that always I would listen to him. I just can’t handle the SCREAMING!!! Can’t understand it.

    But this is just my opinion…. and opinions are like ass holes – everyone has one.!!!

  113. Skippy, you got that right..Everyone has one…I have listened to every show this season..Also listened to very song I could find on UTube that ADAM sings…I do not hear the screaming..I know some people talk about the screaming..I hear a beautiful soft voice that at times, hit incredibly high notes…but have never heard the screaming and that’s my opinion and like you said, “everyone has one”…

  114. I think Danny should have won. Kris is sweet and has a good voice..Adam in my opinion has a good voice but is way too bizzare..sticks his tounge out, screams, dresses like a weirdo..He will win and that will be a shame.

  115. We are all judging the contestants on singing ability and talent, we all admit they are both talented but one is miles ahead, this ADAM, where do cloths come as criteria in a singing competition? Anyway, I love what Adam is wearing, is modern, is current, is ROCK, we love it. He is unique, our IDOL 2009.

  116. Gosh, Mary Anne, you sure are a die-hard!!!

    I thought I was the only one that was enough of a stalker to find Adam’s old songs on YouTube. Teehee..

    Which is your favorite?? I really like I Just Love You and Glamorize. 😀

  117. tim: so what about if adam is a homosexual? are you sure of your facts. or its just another hearsay to destroy his reputation? you are like JUDAS, another gay here who keep on mocking and bashing adam lambert.

    tonight, it will be a RECORD in History of american idol, cuz the guy you keep on saying as GAY will be the AMERICAN IDOL- SEASON 8.

    So many sickos and assholes here. why cant they just close those stinking mouth of theirs? yeah, you have the right and freedom to expression but you dont have the right to malign someone like adam who hasnt done anything wrong with you personally.

    Those attacks are already below the belt. adam reached the finals despite the sarcasm, mockery, bashing and foul write ups about him and yet this guy survived. because he is a sweet and tremendously gifted guy who bring happiness to his legions of fans all over, he will be the next american idol.

    and you tim and JUDAS, i hope will go to HELL, cuz thats the place where you belong…. pathetic losers!

  118. Does Carrie Underwood play and instrument????

    What does ADAM not Playing an instrument have to do with anything???
    What is the matter with some of you??

    Adam Lambert is simply the BEST Vocalist this year. And perhaps, any year thus far.

  119. I am glad on the other hand of the finale song ” No Boundaries” for it was able to showcase adam lambert’s inborn talent in singing. such a difficult song but he was able to deliver it without any faults. I couldnt believe his vocal range now….. i just cant stop shaking my head while adam belted to the highest notes. so incredible.

    In fact, im thanking Kara Dioguardi for such a brilliant song cuz a mediocre singer couldnt bring the best out of that song. but adam lambert sang it with class and excellence.

    go go go adam lambert, you deserve a KUDOS for such a brilliant performance.

    you are truly an american idol!!!

  120. mary anne- i saw the result posted at zabasearch and you are right, adam lambert 56% votes casted in his favor and kris allen has 44% only. meaning adam is now the american idol.

    i hope this result posted by zabasearch is correct.

    i guess, ill post my advance congratulations to my IDOL- ADAM LAMBERT.

    YOU TOOK THE WHOLE WORLD IN YOUR HAND AND ‘ NO BOUNDARIES’ IS SO APPROPRIATE SONG, NO BOUNDARIES FOR YOU TO REACH THE PINNACLE OF SUCCESS..

    CONGRATULATIONS ADAM LAMBERT!

  121. KRIS ALLEN IS THE DARK HORSE….better yet he wins for DANNY GOKEY is the best among them all

  122. i just read the comments at zabasearch and majority posted in favor of adam lambert.

    he is a great guy and i am so proud i am one of his multitudes of fans all over the world.

    you ROCK The world adam lambert.

  123. same to you grimlock! F*CK Off idiot!

    i belong to the music industry and i am with an acapela group got that? u want me to define to you what musicality is? LOL loser!

  124. Jay, we appreciate all of the expertise you bring to this discussion. I do think you’ve done America wrong by not going out for American Idol yourself. Maybe next year……

  125. adam lambert is talented, yes. but he is so predictable. you know he will do good in every performance. but kris allen? who would have thought he’s gunna reach this far? well, he’s definitely NOT LESS TALENTED than adam. kris is really awesome. its just that adam got more confidence and experience as he’ve done theater performances. but kris, he’s just a simple guy with a great voice and an incredible sex appeal. hope kris allen win this season.

  126. ADAM has it all..He is the next Elvis..He is not only American Idol..He is World Idol….
    Go ADAM!!!

  127. I cant wait for the declaration tonight of Adam Lambert as the AMERICAN IDOL. i am fidgety, edgy, nervous and at the same time overwhelmed with a certain euphoria that adam lambert will get the crown.

    all the efforts here and in the other forums helped our campaign to give the title to adam lambert.

    to all adam lambert lovers from adamlandia…. thank you and hope to see you next time in season 9. i love all of the adam fans here. you are all great.

    let’s give a toast to adam lambert, the great idol!

  128. Frank, bet you knew I could not keep quiet for long, didn’t you?? I won’t lower myself to make any remarks about Kris, but I sure can chime in with praise for ADAM!!!!ADAM ROCKS!!

  129. *virtual toast*

    Love it; Adamlandia. heehee

    I also hope to see you all here next year!! I’m sure I’ll have another favorite: though he will not be as good as Adam. 🙂

  130. Hey, guys, it’s on..Now we have a very long 2 hour wait before they Announce that ADAM is the new American Idol..GO ADAM!!!

  131. Opening song – Top 13…Really cute…
    good to see them all again..I had forgotten some of them..ADAM looks great in White….Like Elvis!! Go ADAM!!!

  132. Jay Tumamao: yes F8CK THE HELL OFF HERE WITH YOUR SENSELESS COMMENTS, ASSHOLE!!!

    WHO ARE YOU, A NOBODY WHO PRETEND TO KNOW EVERYTHING ABOUT MUSIC. MY … SUCH A SENILE OLD FAG WHO ARE FOND OF BASHING ADAM LAMBERT…. YOU ARE A STUPID IDIOT GET THAT????

  133. #166

    Rrrrgg I have to wait another HOUR before it starts here… well, more like half an hour now. I don’t get it live… but I can’t wait to see how happy Adam is when he wins!! Ahhh!! That will make my day/week/month/year!!

  134. Jay Tumamao: i hope when adam lambert will be declared winner , you will eat those harsh words back into your stinking and trashy smelling mouth.

    Yes, you are a f*cking idiot, i wont let you go by not attacking you too fag.

    you been an irritant since then, mocking, bashing and lambasting adam lambert. you are so opinionated and your opiniuons are not solicited here, get that asshole?

    even if you keep on attacking viciously adam lambert, you cant change history anymore. go to zabasearch and see for yourself the result of the voting.

    adam lambert got 56% and kris allen got 44%.

    100 million votes were already counted and its a big margin so its actually adam lambert who was voted by most americans to be the next idol.

    so better get lost and go to HELL you asshole!

  135. Well the first hour has been a lot of nothing..ADAM was on the first few minutes with the top 13..Have not seen him any more since then…Just a bunch of junk!! Now for the second hour…waiting for ADAM!!!

  136. JAG, ADAM just performed with KISS and he was one of them..Fabulous…Highlight of the night..Brought the house down!!! GO ADAM!!!

  137. Oh, I love New Mexico..Santa Fe one of my favorite places…GO ADAM!!

  138. I just had a terrible thought…ADAM has changed me completely..May not be for the better..I have never been a rock fan at all..My Daughter and Son are so very proud of me…They say, “Mom’s into rock now”!!!

  139. Ohmigosh!! Gotta go..My man’s singing again!!! Too Much…GO ADAM!!!

  140. I think that KRIS ALLEN was the best i thought adams 1st performance was weird and i didn’t like his other, but kris was good overall

  141. haha omg i can’t wait to see Adam!! KISS?? wow that will be amazing!!!!!!

  142. GRIMLOCK! U DO NOT KNOW NOTHING BUT CURSE U so better get lost and go to HELL you asshole!
    HAHAHAHAHAHA

  143. For me its Kris al the way his singing more soothing to hear rather than screaming by Adam. Kris performance really showed he is more versertail singer than rocker. Just give him any song & he will deliver with pleasant performance……Vote for Kris

  144. Just Another Glambert THANK YOU….im not into cursing so let GRIMLOCK scream out cursing hahahahaha

  145. Last half much better…Great entertainment, lots of surprises!! And lots more ADAM!!!:)

  147. WOW, sucky….

    Can’t top that, but I think you have a bit too much time on your hands…

    WOW.

  148. I READ THIS AND I AM POSTING IT…
    (Nothing against Kris though. If there are parts in it that say so… apologies…but true…)

    Adam Lambert Loses, Homophobia Wins

    The best singer didn’t win a freaking singing contest.

    When Kris Allen defeated Adam Lambert as the Season 8 “American Idol,” it was, as predicted, a seismic upset. The Chicago Sun-Times said, “David slayed Goliath.” Endless bloggers posted reactions like “The biggest robbery since Bush stole the election” and “The end of American Idol’s last hope at relevance.”

    Everyone, from the judges to Google to Yahoo to the Vegas odds makers, predicted a Lambert victory. They were right, and everyone knows it. In the end homophobia won, and everyone knows it.

    Yes, homophobia is alive and well, which is why Lambert lost the ultimate title. Go ahead — give me another reason. Yes, Lambert is over the top and screams a lot and is campier than Liberace at Radio City. Sure, Kris Allen is a cutie, and has pleasant enough vocals, and he’s nice. But a better singer, or performer, than Lambert? Please.

    By anyone’s estimation, Lambert was the best vocalist of the entire Idol season and one of the best, if not the best, in the history of the program. He towered over every contestant, exposing them as the amateurs they are. Every Lambert performance was an event. If this competition were only about singing, he crushed everyone else the second he walked onstage.

    Kris Allen is a very affable and attractive young man. He is a decent vocalist with a very limited range and marginal talents. He should have made it to 3rd place at best. Time will tell if he reaches the level of John Mayer or Jack Johnson.

    The final round, if vocals were the actual standard, should have been Lambert and Allison Iraheta, the precocious 17 year old with the whisky crusted Janis Joplin voice. But vocals, as evidenced by this and other Idol seasons, are not the final standard. In the end, a ‘likeability’ factor intrudes, turning ‘Idol’ into the Miss America Pageant or, more realistically, the high school Homecoming coronation.

    Melinda Doolittle lost to Jordin Sparks. Chris Daughtry lost to Taylor Hicks. Jennifer Hudson lost to … anyone. It’s a real shame that Idol is decided by the public and not just music professionals, because let’s face it, the voting public is not that bright. The public voted George W. Bush twice as president. The public thinks Halliburton is Liz Taylor and Richard Burton’s daughter. The public votes on who they want to ‘hang out’ with.

    In that event, Allen won by a landslide. Lambert hangs out with kinky L.A. theatre folk who dress wierd, stay out all night, and possibly do drugs and get into compromising positions. Allen hangs out at a local Arkansas bar, has a beer or two, strums a song, and then goes home to wedded Christian bliss. (Of course, I’d rather hang with Lambert’s crowd. How much fun do you think they are? Are you kidding?)

    If the contestants had zero backstory, Lambert would have decimated the competition. Instead, Allen’s Christianity, church roots and corn-fed wife were exploited, as were Lambert’s musical theatre roots (i.e. his ‘theatre fag’ history). He didn’t say a word about his sexuality, but didn’t need to. For that we had the Internet, zapping anyone’s private photo library to the world, so photos of Lambert swapping saliva with a guy went viral, as well as a lot of his very strange yet riveting LA cabaret performances, turning off the homophobic majority.

    Yes, a majority of the country is homophobic. If it weren’t, gays would have had their rights back in the 90s when the Europeans got them. We wouldn’t have a majority of states with a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage. We wouldn’t be fighting for even rudimentary domestic partnership laws in some cities and states. We wouldn’t have anti-gay imbeciles like Maggie Gallagher, Peter LaBarbera, Matt Barber or the “God Hates Fags” morons getting publicity. Yep, if American weren’t homophobic, Lambert would be waving to the crowds from a convertible.

    Bill O’Reilly, a homophobe who knows what plays to his old white guy audience, did at least two features on Lambert’s sexuality, creating an issue where none needed exist. He first brought up the Internet photos of Lambert kissing a guy and asked if this would be a “problem” for America, an America who might not have even thought about it until O’Reilly brought it up. And right before the Idol finale he brought on Newsweek’s Ramin Setoodeh, author of an article about the “Christian vote” going to Allen, again planting a seed in a public who might not previously have thought of it. O’Reilly is a skilled propagandist, warning us against the evils of the secular world before they even entered our minds. And Steoodeh wrote, post ‘Idol,” about reasons why Lambert may have lost, neglecting to mention how he himself may have contributed.

    I’m sorry a simple musical theatre actor from California and a simple guitar strummer from Arkansas have to bear this cultural burden, but there it is. Despite Allen’s pleading that “It’s about music, it’s not about religion and all that kind of stuff,” it is indeed about religion and all that kind of stuff. Danny Gokey’s pastor Twittered, “We need a believer to represent.” Even Rev. Ted Haggard, the most frightened homosexual in America, Twittered that he wanted Allen to win. A Lambert win would have scared the bejeezus out of him.

    Conservatives are all still stinging from their defeat at the polls in November. They wanted something to take home. They couldn’t possibly let a guy who wears eyeliner and nail polish win, no matter how astoundingly talented he is.

    It is to Lambert’s credit and astounding talent that he got this far, and the media sensation he has created ensures him a very exciting post-Idol career. He’s a phenomenon who has earned every bit of ink he has created. He made ‘Idol” relevant again. His outrageous performances woke up a sleeping audience.

    And he made, without really trying, a great leap for gays in America. The American public learned his sexuality early on and still voted for him into the finals, even if they were too scared to give him the ultimate prize. But they obviously had their limits. Perhaps if he hadn’t sung his finale “Mad World” performance in that ‘Basketball Diaries’ cloak, which made us fear he was a misunderstood youth about to pull out a semiautomatic and open fire on the tweens in the mosh pit, he would have won.

    Even Kris Allen, at the end, said, “Adam deserves this. I’m sorry.” It’s Allen who will have to endure the publicity of how it really should have been Lambert up there. He’s a nice guy and doesn’t deserve it. He should enjoy his victory. But he was competing against Goliath, and these things happen. David himself would have had to deal with the fallout.

  149. @YL

    I can only think you must believe this Homophopia crap. Kris won because ARKANSAS carried him. Reportedly 38 million text votes from a state with less than 3 million people.

    Call it southern pride, good ole boy gang or whatever, but southern states have always supported their own. We all knew how to vote and how often we could vote so get off the GAY band wagon. Lot’s of artist are GAY.

    This had more to do with KRIS’S likeability factor not O’Reilly and “The Factor”
    Adam seems quite comfortable with the outcome and is gracious in his congrats to Kris.

    No wonder Kris was supprised, ALL DAY long very blog, news report and website called it for Adam except Facebook. Simon virtually coronated him Tuesday night.

    Kris’s overall talent of both singing as well as playing was considered by the voters, not just the ability to SCREAM out loud notes.

  150. @BILL

    FAMILY SHOULD TAKE CARE OF FAMILY…
    i will not contest that.

    But you see my dear Bill, I am not from anywhere near your voting arena. My point is from a BIRD’S EYE VIEW. I knew TALENT the 1st time I saw ADAM LAMBERT. It didn’t matter if he was gay or not, christian or not, from the west coast or from the east coast. He was TALENT PERSONIFIED. That was all I could see. A lot of people around the globe share that perspective.

    You must accept that fact that him being gay has been one of his biggest demerit. And add the “SOUTHERN BOND” that you call. This boy Adam will have to pass through the eye of a needle to win YOUR AMERICAN IDOL “SINGING” CONTEST.

    Needless to say I am not worried though, I am sure that talented as he is, he has and they have found the man that is ADAM LAMBERT…

  151. Hi YL. See that you’re still fighting the good fight. Looks like we American Adam fans let the rest of the world down but we did the best we could. And some of us are Southern;-}

  152. FRANKIEEEEEEEEE…..
    Hey Defender!

    You did all you could and from the rest of the globe we are thankful. Much as it is disappointing I know that our boy ADAM LAMBERT has made a mark and will linger on for a very long time…
    Do take care always and this i mean from the heart…
    “NICE MEETING YOU”
    🙂

  153. KRIS Won………….?

    ADAM deserved it.

    AMERICA- WHAT A STUPID COUNTRY!

    Oh wait yeah the title is American IDOL not AMERICA’s Got TALENT…….

    Im sure Kris is happy…the same happiness you get when you have a million dollars stolen from your grandma. Fake.

    Simon, you are so right, ADAM is the WORLD IDOL because America is so backwards and blind and not yet ready for a phenomenon like Adam but the rest of the world is. Furthermore, country music is big only in America but unknown to the rest of the world. It was like adrenaline rushing watching Adam sing with Kiss and Queen but we dont even know the so called Country Superstar Keith Urban whatever except that he is the wife, i mean husband of Nicole Kidman.

    To the little 10-15 year old kids of America who voted for Kris..BOOOHOOOOO! You should never be given mobile phones.

  154. Wow there Rest of the World! There were several million voters in America voting for Adam and guess what some of us are big country fans.

    I’m sorry the international community couldn’t vote. From comments on here I think Adam would have easily won.

  155. Okay sorry Frank. But kudos to you for not being one of the blind and deaf and dumb majority in America. Talent recognizes talent I guess and Kris Allens win only shows that most of America idolizes mediocrity. Even Danny and Allison were better than Kris. Kris won the biggest joke of all time.

  156. Apology accepted. The world will be entertained by Adam. That’s much more important than a contest that has proven to get it wrong more than right over the 8 years it has been in America.

  157. Oh, and Keith Urban is Australian like his wife so even some other parts of the world enjoy some good old country music as well;-}

  158. I see, yes the colonies love country music I guess. Still much to catch up on. Anyway we are on the same boat about the Idol contest. It should have been Adam. What a blunder. Carrie Underwood sings country too but she is tolerable as winner. There was no Adam talent during her time. Kris would have been okay but seeing him in contest with Adam makes him look like a joke and they sealed THE JOKE OF THE YEAR by LETTING HIM WIN. Kris is definitely leading in the WORST WINNERS OF AMERICAN IDOL. What a great honor to have that title with people all around you, even the most prominent judges and artists questioning it. Shooo, little man!

  159. I see, yes the colonies love country music I guess. Still much to catch up on. Anyway we are on the same boat about the Idol contest. It should have been Adam. What a blunder.

    KRIS ALLEN=JOKE!

    ADAM=STAR!

  160. Everybody correct. Kris deserve winner.

    If Adam Lambert were not in contest.

    But Kris beat Adam is something not right,

    Kris no good even compare to danny or matt or anoop and allison. no vocal prowess.

    Even JASON CASTRO was better voice and more good-looks and original than Kris but he only got 4th. But Kris 1st? No no no!

    Not good! America vote based on hate and not sing. Not good!

  161. You know what people, i don’t care at all on whether you like the predictions or not but i’m gonna say this! Yipee! Yipee! Yippe! Yipee! Wow! Wow! Wow! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! My fave fave fave idol has won! Whoo Hoo…….
    Yes! I never ever expected expected this to be happened in the history of the Amercian Idol knowing that Adam a super super marvellous/super powerful/super strong perfomer/vocalist on season 8 ever can be beaten by Kris and lost, way below that his expectation and worst, live on t.v! That’s got to be hurt and shamful! I first found out the news for the first time @ yahoo while i was working. I was so so so shocked but very very happy and proud at Kris and those people who voted for Kris and most inportanly, very glad that he won. Later at night, when i watched the finale on t.v, i was totally blowned away! Kris never expected that he could win and then, later he hugged his wife and cried very very happily. I said to myself, Wow! that is one hell of a show! Lots of emotion but lots of happiness. Kriss deserved to win and very deserved to cry on his wife shoulder. It simply worth it very very much!

    You know, what i can say about Kris Allen is that he’s a survivor and no matter what negativity, he kept on performing, performing, performed and most of all, he did not even gave up so so easily and that’s what all of the struggling musicians out there + people who are having a bad day and really really need a real true motivation, follow Kris one!

    When people and the judges said negativity comments on his weekly performances on idol, he did not gave up but instead, held up to the judges comments on what the hell went wrong + listened to the mistakes very very carefully and yes, turned into the best and brilliant marvellous on the next performance and he had trully done that on idol!. Everyone should be inspired, motivates and most inportantly of all, did not give up that easily just like how he does and i’m sure gonna follow his motivation.

    Kris had showed lots and lots of improvement on his performances especially from his first one of “Man In A Mirror” to his latest and soon No 1, platinum single soon, “No Boundries”. What i trully trully like and love about his atttitide is that he is so so so so genius, genius, very very intelligent, so so so smart on that his accustic performances are so so absolutely marvellous and brilliant. I really wanna wanna know and learn on how the hell does he do that cause that passion/talent are so unique and honourable and i don’t ever think that any performer/artist can performed that accustic performances better and marvellous than Kris.

    Kris is a sensative sweet guy who we all heard on his ballad performances and indeed what Randy Travis called him the strong ballad singer and Randy and Simon called his “Tender Dogg/Tender Puppy are true. Kris really really showed to every single one that though he’s not like Adam but he worked very very hard and in the ned, it showed that hard work really really paid off big time and also the risks.

    I wanna thanked every single one out there who voted, cheered, supported, Kris, Danny, Matt, Allison from day 1 and i hope those idols will come out with their latest projects asap as i can’t hardly wait anymore. Kris Allen, congrats to you once again for winning. You simply simply deserved and worth it to be won!

  162. To #200 YL – You state in your lengthy diatribe that “every Lambert performance was an event”. Well, yes, I would agree that it was an event, but probably not the event you think for the majority of us. You further state that “if this competition were only about singing”. It was only about singing and I think that’s where Adam missed the boat. He does have a lovely, full voice – but he maligned every single song with screaming. Had he only just sung a song instead of screaming it, I think people would have accepted him better. Additionally, you state that you think a bunch of homophobes killed Adam’s chance. I, of course, can’t speak for everyone, but I voted for Kris because I enjoyed his “singing” better. My vote had nothing to do with Adam’s sexuality, it had everything to do with the high-pitched screams. Further, you pretty much accuse all of us who didn’t vote for Adam of being stupid. Well, again, this has nothing to do with intelligence but everything to do with the ear. Kris’ voice was pleasing, Adam’s was not! I take offense at being called stupid by someone who doesn’t even know me. Calling names about something like this singing contest leads me to believe that perhaps your IQ isn’t too high!

  163. Am I the only one that realizes that Kris fans can never just say “go Kris” without bashing Adam too? Meanwhile, Adam fans defend Kris from haters. I don’t get it.

  164. JAG, I think both Adam and Kris would want their fans to take the high road.

  165. Kris SUX!!!

    Adam ROX!!!

    What a joke that Kris won over Adam! Danny, Adam, Allison are talented but so many like Kris on the streets.

  166. Good morning, this was a really high quality post. I’d like to write like this also – taking time and real effort to make a good article… but what can I say… I very busy and never seem to get something done.

  167. I really enjoyed the Top 5 American idol group song last night. It was moving to see Aaron Kelly eliminated however I do think the others were better hence he needed to go!

  168. I believe Donald Trump would be a much better American Idol judge compared with Harry Connick Jr. – Trump isn't at all afraid to express what he thinks and can be as controversial as Simon Cowell.

  169. w, this was a really quality post. In theory I’d like to write like this too – taking time and real effort to make a good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate alot and never seem to get something done.

  170. Thanks to you for this great info. Where I can get more article about this writting? I have a presentation incoming this week and your writting is related with it.

  171. Both of these artist were good. But this fighting is stupid. Who won is who won. There is nothing we can do about it. I personally voted for Kris myself, but i enjoy listening to some of Lambert's newer music that was published after the show. Both of these guys were great singers. Fighting over something that happened that long ago isn't going to change the result. Argue all you want, just make yourselves look like bigger idiots. I stand behind my vote for Kris, but i support Adam today. Kris earned the win he got, so stop all this stupid bickering and grow up
