  1. HELLO TO ALL MY ADAM SUPPORTERS…I’VE BEEN READING THE WEEKEND COMMENTS AND BOY ARE THOSE KRIS FANS IN RARE FORM…..I DID NOTICE THAT ADAM FANS NEVER SAY NASTY THINGS ABOUT KRIS. GOES TO SHOW HOW MUCH CLASS WE REALLY HAVE….
    HELLO AND THANK YOU TO FRANK (TALLAHASSEE), MARY ANNE (NASHVILLE), RON (SANTA BARBARA), KATHLEEN F, JODI MUELLER, JOHN WOON, YL, BUBBA, BABS & brooklyn (ARE YOU REALLY FROM BROOKLYN?..I WAS BORN AND RAISED IN BROOKLYN) FOR DEFENDING OUR ADAM…..WE REALLY HAVE OUR JOBS CUT OUT FOR US TOMORROW….GET ENOUGH REST SO WE CAN KEEP VOTING…ITS REALLY SO OBVIOUS THAT ADAM SHOULD BE THE WINNER BUT ONE NEVER KNOWS…E.G. DAUGHTRY, JENNIFER HUDSON RUEBEN ETC……LETS UNITE AND PREVENT THIS FROM HAPPENING….KRIS IS GOOD BUT HE’S NO ADAM (SORRY KRIS FANS)…..
    VOTE FOR THE BEST…..VOTE FOR ADAM…..

  2. i am a huge fan of danny gokey as well as adam lambert. i want adam lambert to win. i cried when danny gokey was eliminated. if adam lambert didn’t win american idol i will never watch american idol

  3. adam will of course be the better…always has been..that might not be what the cellphone votes suggest though!..adam is a sell out crowd versus maybe not so with kris..so push those buttons the correct way, please..express your true selves!

  4. I believe Krist is just as good as Adam. His voice is not as strong as Adam, but musically he is just as talented and I do believe he will do extremely well. In fact, I think he is a bit more versatile than Adam. Adam is only going to do good if he stays with Rock, but Kris will do much more in my most humble opinion. Yet, I am over 40 so who’s really paying me any attention. This younger generation has different views. Anyways just my two cents.

  5. I have to agree with you,hotshot.Both finalists are equally good in their own ways and both will go far.Kris songs are easier on the ears and Adam also have a unique voice.He just need to watch it and tone down a bit.
    It should be an enjoyable finale and best of luck to the two of them.May the better singer win.
    I noticed that we have season l, 5 and 7 winners and finalists performing.Just wondering what happened to season 2 Ruben Studdard and Clay Aiken?Do we ever get to see them perform on American Idol?

  6. Ruben Studdard already performed…remember??

    Anyway GOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Adam and Kris!!

    Being an Allison fan I veer towards Adam of course but they are both worthy!!!

  7. Not only the continent will get a new great voice but the whole globe.

    Muhammad Ahsan + Pakistan (Adam’s Fan)

  8. Adam fans are not as critical as Kris fans. I guess that the standards of Adam fans are lower? hmmm…

  9. I am looking forward to this AI final… my two favorites from the beginning ADAM AND KRIS will be performing…well Megan is someone to remember too…!! so unique!!!
    ADAM IS MY FIRST BET…but for Kris I´m sure
    he´ll do great too..

  10. Good luck to both Adam and Kris 🙂

    Can’t wait to hear your song choices for the finale. It is going to be the most memorable performances in the American Idol history!

    Adam, you are still my favourite, no offence Kris… I will most definitely buy both your CD’s.

  11. No contest.Never was.Adam, you are America’s Idol and so much more.Can’t wait to buy anything and everything you do!Thanks so very much.

  12. PHYLLIS G.(LAS VEGAS, NV)I just love,love Adam! He is the MOST TALENTED SINGER EVER TO WALK ON AL’S stage! I would vote for him a hundred times. But I do not have a cell phone. Is there anyway to vote on the computer? If anyone can help granny vote for Adam lambert just address your comments to Grandma Sherry! Thank-You all Adam Lambert fans!

  13. My vote goes to Adam Lambert, who has been, in my opinion, the most innovative, talented and exciting performer this season.

    PROMOTE THE VOTE for ADAM LAMBERT!!!

  14. Danny should have been in the final!
    i have a question:how come Adam is a rock god and does not know how to play a guitar?
    Why Katy perry advertised for Adam?It was such a shame.It is talent show not commercial show.

  15. Adam should win the title. He is the total package. He has an incredible vocal range and control, he can sing any genre well, his arrangements make the songs his own, he has charisma and knows how to play to the camera and audience. Awesome + Amazing = Adam = American Idol

  16. Danny should have been in the final!
    i have a question:how come Adam is a rock god and does not know how to play a guitar?
    Why Katy perry advertised for Adam?It was such a shame.It is a talent show not a commercial show.

  17. I’m voting kris because i like his type of music better, but i believe both are good i don’t know why everything has to be a bash contest. I’m a gay male but I’m voting kris just because i like him better. I think this is silly everyone has a right to there opinions and everyone has a right to vote the way they like. After all this is America. Freedom is what we all want and what are brave soldiers of this country are fighting for everyday. So everyone should be just a little kinder to everyone let them have there say. If you don’t like it don’t listen. Well i wish both good luck and may the one most of America favors enjoy the title of American idol 2009.

  18. kris is cool and all but when the 2 are compared there is no competition.
    adam is way more original and a way better entertainer
    plus you are able to know a lot about him and his personality and i dont know anything about kris other than he is married and hot
    kris will only sell records to mainly 13 yr old girls
    adam appeals to everybodY
    VOTE VOTE VOTE!

  19. I like Kris…he’s a good vocalist AND a good
    Christian… Hmmmm…maybe that’s why he’s not
    getting too much face time here. Anyway, he’s
    MY choice, and if his fans SEEM critical, it’s
    because everyone else has ALWAYS looked ‘down’
    on Arkansas, so it’s part of a defensive attitude.

  20. “because everyone else has ALWAYS looked ‘down’
    on Arkansas, so it’s part of a defensive attitude.”

    I will not comment – I will not comment – I will not comment – I will not comment- I will not comment

  21. I go for Adam Lambert he is the best singer, his vocal range is amazing. It should have been Adam vs Danny or Adam vs. Allison rather than Adam vs. Kris. Kris can only sing a certain type of songs his vocal range is not as dynamic as Adam. Good luck Adam for me you are the CHAMPION!

  22. Folks – This isn’t about Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Straight, Gay, Black, White!

    Let’s vote for the best singer. If you are not voting for the best “singer”, then you are not being honest.

  23. The best singer is Adam Lambert. His vocal range is absolutely fantastic. He is original and can sing anything. He has an amazing personality and is always humble and respects his fellowman. And that is what Idols is about. Go Adam. My vote is for you. GO, GO, GO!
    Vote for ADAM!

  24. I love Kris Allen and I want him to be the next American Idol. His versatility in all aspect of musical instruments connotes a true identity of an idol. To be a singer, you must not only have a good singing voice but you must be flexible, versatile and humble and that is Kris Allen. Go Kris, Go. . . Go . . . You will win the competition.

  25. #32 Thanks Googlemesh for the post and reminding folks that this is a talent competition!!!

  26. Adam is the best ever happened to Idols. Good luck and we all pray that you win. Because you have everything. Go Adam Go

  27. both guys are excellent in their own genre, but for the idol please please please America vote for ADAM. do’n make a botch like S.A. 2 winners with a difference of 200,000 votes. what a farce. keep voting Adam adam you go my guy i am a huge fan you. ADAM ADAM ADAM!!!!!!

  28. i hope kris wins this…
    i dont dislike adam..but i prefer kris’ songs…
    he doesnt have to rely on a single note or trademark to make his songs unique…he has his own different style of doing so..n i like that style.
    i wudnt be surprised if adam wins coz of al the publicity he’s getting from AI producers n performers..n he’s even overrated by the judges who i think shudnt b biased
    kris aint safe coz of his last performance only..but coz of his constant ability to surprise everyone whenever he stepped on the stage

  29. n i hate it when people say..’if kris wins it wud show people aint voting for true talent but r going for gud looks’..if dat was the case megan wud still be in…
    and adam is as gud luking as kris in his own way…
    so no one has right to assume voters’ intentions…
    i hope kris does great..n proves himself again..
    adam can hit great notes but it is those great notes dat r also his weak point..ppl either love him or really hate him for those notes..so he shud do something different for the finals

  30. they are both really good and i’d say both of them deserve to win! they both have really good points in their singing but they also bypass the other in some points… so go both of them!

  31. Annie, You are right. Cos if people were voting for the looks as the majority says then LIL ROUNDS should have won cos I believe she was more prettier than all the gals in the competition, So pple stop lying cos peoople are totally voting for talent…. period

  32. Votes for adam are more important this tues or wed,so guys if you can vote pls vote for him,don’t let adam fail,many people think that he deserves to win but he can only win through vote….so pls. You guys can do this..if only i can vote.I’m from the phils.

  33. Both these guys are extremely talented, but personally I think that Adam has the edge on Kris. Although we here in South Africa cannot vote for American IDOL, we follow the series with keen interest. My money is on Adam for his amazing voice range and his extremely good showmanship and composure. Fairly early during the series,I have identified him as the ultimate winner for American Idol. Good luck Adam!!!

  34. Adam is true and unconventional talent.
    He is an IDOL already! He deserves to win it all more than anybody else.
    Kris should be gone long before Allison and Danny.
    Good luck to Adam and all us funs!!!

  35. ADAM – Fantastic!! Wow! Amazing that’s all I can say. We have just finished the South African idols and yep not eve or will it eva live up to the American Idols!!!

  36. what is good looks without a good voice! Go for ADAM, the best of the best-The perfect american idol.

  37. Adam! Wow! Amazing! The Best! You have got the looks! The attitudy and style and THE VOICE!
    American people VOTE!!! ADAM

  38. Both guy are talented but Adam has the edge with vocals, range, voice control, performance, entertainment value. VOTE, VOTE, VOTE FOR ADAM.

  39. ADAM LAMBERT….. HE IS THE BEST TO WIN THIS COMPETITION.

    ADAM LAMBERT IS THE AMERICAN IDOL!

    ADAM LAMBERT IS ROCK GOD…

  40. It should have been Danny and Adam in the finals. How the heck did Kris get in there? He is good, but ladies, he isn’t great (maybe great looking)but not a great singer. Since Danny, who I have loved from day one, was eliminated, my vote is for Adam. He was my second choice from the start. DANNY SHOULD HAVE BEEN THIS YEAR’S AMERICAN IDOL!!!!

  41. ADAM LAMBERT..Head and shoulders above all AI contestants…He has it all…VOTE, VOTE, VOTE ADAM!!!

  42. vote for adam. he is just too much fun . always wonder what he will sing next.but, i,m 78 qnd still waiting for an elvis song.

  43. I am now feeling edgy since this is the most crucial time for my favorite idol adam lambert.

    i hope and pray that he will win the title as american idol.

    GO GO GO GO GO MR. ADAM LAMBERT MY AMERICAN IDOL!!!!

    GO AND CONQUER THE WHOLE WORLD.

  44. Amazing
    Daring
    Awesome
    Mesmerizing!

    You are right burnie,it would be interesting to hear Adam sing Elvis.I’m waiting for that too!

  45. Burnie, I’m with you..I’m still waiting for an Elvis song too…Elvis was the King and I can see so much of Elvis in ADAM…The physical resemblance in uncanny..I know he could do wonders with an Elvis song…Would be super if he would do one tonight!! I’ll be watching, waiting and voting for ADAM!!!

  46. Chris is a talented musician-piano, guitar and voice. Adam is a supurb singer. He’s got great vocal range and has experience as a stage performer and in theater. Both will go far. However, my vote is for Adam. He’s got style and he can SING. Go Adam

  47. Emy and all the other ADAM fans who cannot vote…Not to worry..I’ll put in some votes for you all….VOTE ADAM!!!

  48. Believe Adam should win,but depends which way Danny’s voters go. Even if he doesn’t he will be a star and also almost beneficial because he won’t be under a contract with Idol and can go out and do whatever he likes. look at Daughtry, Hudson etc.
    well, everyone enjoy. can’t wait for tonight

  49. ADAM LAMBERT

    ADAM LAMBERT

    ADAM LAMBERT

    ADAM LAMBERT

    ADAM LAMBERT

    KEEP ON VOTING FOR HIM AND LET US GET UNITED TO MAKE ADAM LAMBERT WIN THE TITLE AS AMERICAN IDOL!!!!

  50. I WISH ADAM LAMBERT WILL SING” CAN’T HELP FALLING IN LOVE” BY ELVIS PRESLEY . THAT WOULD BE A BLOCKBUSTER TOO.

    ADAM ADAM ADAM ADAM ADAM

    GO GO GO MY IDOL!!!

  51. I would love it if Adam did an Elvis song, that would be fantastic, but whatever he chooses to do will be outstanding. AMERICAN IDOL 2009 AND WORLD IDOL ADAM LAMBERT.

  52. I honestly am a HUGE rock fan! Pink Floyd, Radiohead, and Trapt are just a few of my favorite bands. I started off loving Adam Lambert. As the season has gone on, he has just become not so attractive musically to me. His rendition of One and Cryin highly disappointed me. Granted, Kris does not have as STRONG as a voice as Adam, but he is AMAZINGLY musically gifted. He’s very versatile and has a style that would be highly marketable. I started the season thinking Adam should win, but I have very much so changed my mind. Kris has proven to pull through even when everyone has counted him out! GO KRIS!!!!! 😉

  53. Storm, that would be great..Several others come to mind…You know, ADAM must have been told about his strong physical resemblance to Elvis..Perhaps he does not do Elvis because he wants to be his own man..Hopefully after he is voted American Idol, he will do some Elvis…Vote ADAM!!! WORLD IDOL!!!

  54. to esteban–you should be ashamed of yourself….judge not lest you be judged….this is a talent competition, and Adam has way more talent than Kris..while Kris is a nice guy, he is no different that Taylor Hicks, and we all know where that winner led us..no where

  55. Also, I wanted to mention something. To all of you who are saying that if Adam loses, or Kris loses, the title that you won’t watch American Idol anymore, you need to grow up. This is a competition and the winner is chosen by US!!!!!!! If Adam gets more votes, than he’s the winner. If Kris gets more votes, than he’s the winner. Nobody should hold who wins this season against the show. Don’t be pety and childish. If you don’t like the outcome of the finale, maybe you should become an Idol executive and change the show. It’s not like this show hasn’t worked for 8 seasons now and still pull in millions of viewers. You’re right, they have a messed up way of doing this show. Seriously, GROW UP!!!!!! Whoever wins, wins! Deal with it!

  56. I am a Danny fan, so if I were to vote it would have to go to Adam. But the voting is not something I will do anymore. I don’t believe the voting system is fair so I will just enjoy the singing show but no voting for me anymore. I will let the voting to those who wish to outdial the competitors.

  57. Looks like people don’t like Elton John or George Michael because too are gay, how ridiculous. If you can sing you can sing and should win based on that alone. Good luck Adam!

  58. Kathy, right on..You go, girl….We all Love ADAM!!! Dial your fingerprints off tonight…VOTE ADAM!!!!

  59. Janet, I agree with you…Bless their hearts, that is all they can find against ADAM!!!
    A huge percentage of us love ADAM!!!!
    VOTE ADAM!!

  60. J, I agree with you and I think most people do..The voting system is unfair..but that is the way it is..If everyone who thought it was unfair quit voting, there would be no votes…You are right..It is not a talent contest, it is a voting contest so we must VOTE, VOTE, VOTE FOR ADAM!!

  61. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…

    Adam is a Rocker through and through. It’s pure talent to be table to control a scream and keep it on key!!! Face it people – the guy has TALENT!!! ALL of the music celebrities agree. I believe that Adam’s voice well surpasses David Lee Roth and Steven Tyler. He’s got the epitome of the rock n’ roll voice.

    ROCK ON ADAM!!! I’ll be voting for you tonight for as long as the polls stay open!!!

  62. Just look at the votes on this site alone – 70% ADAM, 30% Kris- tells it all.

    Of course there are other factors involved with the voting the way it is and people who are able to vote in the thousands and some who can only vote in the teens – we all know who is the real winner – ADAM. He stated after last week’s show that he stayed true to himself throughout the season – dressed the way he dresses, and sang the way he sings and he is soooooooo happy that voters have embraced him- just the way he is. So, I fully expect that tonight will be another blockbuster entertaining night on AI because ADAM will be himself – and we ADAM LOVERS love ‘HIMSELF.’

    Hello to all the usual ADAM fans – PHYLLIS G, Mary Anne, Ron, Bubba, Frank, Jodi Mueller, and all the rest who have written some honest and provocative posts. We all learn from each other and it is so refreshing to see the enormity of what ADAM has done, crossing all the usual lines – all people loving him, defending him and embracing him without any prejudice. I think this is America’s time to shine in the world of tolerance. What better way to accomplish this than through music and entertainment – laughter and friendship.

    I will miss this site and chatting with all of you when this season is over – we are friends and allies with a part of ADAM’s future in our hands- or fingers I should say – we need to rally tonight and VOTE for ADAM!!!!!!!

  63. Hey Sherry, #18…You don’t have to have a cell phone..A regular Land Line will do..It is a toll free # so no charge for you to vote as many times as you want to, so long as it is for ADAM!!!

  64. This is a competition viewed world wide. In the caribbean – Trinidad and Tobago to be spacific we have music that most of the world is now discovering and it is amazing- musically Adam lacks a bit, because if one take their time to look at his performances – His gesticulations are that of Elvis Presley. that takes away from his originality. I truly believe the guy can sing, just do away with the antics and Sing!!! Kris on the other hand needs to be a little more assertive and just continue doing his thing – he is a super talanted musician. I Believe he is a Winner and will be accepted worldwide- dollar for dollar his future has more dollars.

  65. Kathleen F. Good morning from Nashville (Music City USA) I have spoken to several of my “Music Business” friends and they are all rooting for ADAM..They all say he has the “IT” Factor, as Bubba says..

    We would love to have him come to Nashville..We are not just country, you know. We have all genres of music here now and ADAM would fit right in!! There are lots of offers waiting for him here..

    I’m like you, looking forward to tonight, but surely will miss chatting with all you ADAM Lovers after this is all over…

  66. Kris also has remained true to himself. Have you seen him stray away from his jeans, plaid shirt, downhome Southern boy style? NO! He is known for being humble and making AMAZING arrangements of songs that you wouldn’t expect…..IE. Heartless. BY FAR, said by everyone, the best performance of last week out of all three contenstants INCLUDING Adam himself. As for you are saying musical celebrities say Adam….Daughtry, David Cook, Kanye, Jamie Foxx etc all said Kris was better MUSICALLY!!!!! Yes, Adam has performance over Kris by a lot! But anyone who went to the MET as a kid SHOULD have that kind of performance ability. Who was Kris before Idol? Just a southern boy who had an amazing voice. Look at how far he has come. He’s highly talented musically. He is who he is and he doesn’t try to outshine or stray from his style of music. I love rock and I really don’t have much else in my collections of albums, but I WOULD NOT own an Adam Lambert album. His screech is just much like nails on a chalk board! And I own every Aerosmith album…….so, what’s that have to say?

  67. esteban#68, I can’t belive you said that!
    So low! You should be ashamed of yourself!

    And yes, voting system isn’t fair.
    People block and hack phone lines. It’s sad!
    Lets enjoy show tonight and help Adam win despite everything!

  68. To Kathleen F: Its just 5oo votes or more kid.You should wait for Wednesday night.You will see that the most votes will go to Krisssssssssss AAAAllllaaaeeeeeeeeenn…

  69. esteban: then dont vote. whats ur problem anyway? why say those nasty words against adam lambert?: do you have prima facie evidence that he is gay?

    just f*ck off…. such a stupid remark.

  70. 4 all adam’s fans…

    PLEASE VOTE FOR US WHO CAN’T!!

    ADAM HAS A LOT OF FANS OUTSIDE OF AMERICA 2!!

    TOO BAD WE CAN’T VOTE SO….

    WE RELY ON U GUYS!!

    GOOD LUCK!! XDDD

    go ADAM!!!

  71. Ayleen, I’ll be happy to put in a few extra votes for ADAM for you and the others who love ADAM but can’t vote…ADAM – WORLD IDOL!!!

  72. A-Bass: so what if you wont buy adam lambert’s album? why do you have to announce it here?

    same with me, i will never buiy any cd of kris allen cuz his sound is just like so many musicians here. he is so stereo typed kind of guy , not original and his stage performance is lack luster even.

    i really wondered too why kris allen reached the finals when it should had been allison iraheta and adam lambert for the finals.

    for me, kris allen is just an ordinary singer, nothing spectacular on him.

  73. Joanna – I agree totally – 100% with your post – including what you said to esteban.

    Hello Mary Anne, glad you are on today – looks like it will be an interesting evening… I too, believe there are many, many ADAM fans in the South – there is not one single part of the country or the world that is not touched by ADAM’s talent.

    A- Bass – I just wondered where you got your info from – ADAM gave credit to both Danny and Kris for doing a great job- shows his style and friendship, but I did not read anywhere that all those people said Kris was better…. do you have anything to back up your statements?

    On e-online, they quoted Jamie Foxx as saying, “Adam is going to win, he is going to go stratosphere.” He did say “Kris sort of swooned me, and he added he would like to do a record with him because he is sort of understated.” I believe he gave quodos to the both of them, but predicted a win for ADAM. And ADAM has “stayed true to his music.”

    Kris did a great job on “Heartless”, but not so good on “Apologize.” ADAM on the other hand did a fantastic job on all the songs he has done. I think he is more talented, but I am surely not saying Kris isn’t talented, just an average singer. Tonight we will see & hear three songs – they should all be superb – nothing short of genius….. we shall see the real talent.

    I am VOTING FOR ADAM

  74. #68..I will ignore your rude, crude, socially unacceptable remarks….

    All you ADAM Lovers, VOTE, VOTE, VOTE FOR ADAM!!!

  75. I cannot wait to see Kris wipe the floor with Adam tonight!!! Watch out Adam!!

    Vote for KRIS!!!!!

  76. thx a lot Mary Ann!!!

    May God Bless U!! XDD

    good luck 4 all!!

    we’ll b waiting 4 good news! ^-^

    this is the last sprint!! hang on there guys!!

  77. A- Bass; Just one song Heartless by Kris Allen and you already praised kris allen to high heavens?

    what about adam lambert’s songs ‘ MAD WORLD’, ‘ IF I CAN’T HAVE YOU’, ‘ TRACK OF MY TEARS’, RING OF FIRE AND ‘ BLACK OR WHITE’?

    If usical experts like simon cowell has given adam lambert a standing ovation but self imposed critics here are hard to please by adam’s song. anyway, if you are not pleased with adam’s singing, just bear with him cuz this guy will e the next AMERICAN IDOL.

    Go Go Go Adam Lambert.

  78. watch out kris allen cuz adam lambert will sweep the finals by landslide and he will get the title as american idol, season 8.

  79. Highly doubtful that any kind of landslide is going to happen tonight. Remember how close the vote was last week? But Adam fans are welcome to believe that if they like.

  80. Adam is World Class artist through and through. He is not just American Idol, but World Idol – no question about that. Come-on American fans, vote for Adam, put in some votes for me!! I can’t vote from where I am. VOTE ADAM!!! He deserves it!

  81. there’s no doubt that Adam is gonna win…. With his freakin amazing vocals, no one could ever beat him….ever!!!! Go Adam!!!!

  82. When they picked the top 13 I would have bet a hundred bucks we would see an adam/danny finale or maybe an adam/allison but here we are.Adam and allison were my favs from the start.Just because I don’t care for the music that kris has performed does not mean he not talented.We all like different types of music and that’s great.If adam sang only country music and nothing else he would never get my vote cause county music is not for me even though country is huge.

    My votes go to adam and even though I am a big fan I even thought it was wrong for katy perry to have his name plastered across her back.

    Good luck to adam and kris tonite and just be happy for the winner.

  83. GOOD MORNING FROM THE WEST COAST TO ALL MY ADAM FANS OUT THERE…WELL TONIGHT’S THE NIGHT….THE LAST NIGHT OF COMPETITION….ADAM HAS NOT MESSED UP ONCE THIS SEASON AND I DOUBT IF HE WILL TONIGHT AND THAT INCLUDES RING OF FIRE WHICH I THOUGHT HE MADE JOHNNY CASH PROUD…………DON’T GET ME WRONG KRIS FANS, I REALLY LIKE HIM AND IF ADAM WASN’T THERE THIS YEAR I WOULD BE VOTING FOR KRIS…UNFORTUNATELY, ADAM BLEW AWAY ALL THE COMPETITION WITH HIS EXTRAORDINARY TALENT AND STAGE PRESENCE…..I WILL BE VOTING TILL MY FINGERS FALL OFF TONIGHT….TO ALL ADAM FANS THAT CAN’T VOTE…..I WILL MAKE AN EXTRA EFFORT TO GET THOSE VOTES IN FOR YOU….

    GRANDMA SHERRY….USE A LAND LINE…THEY WORK..
    I’M REALLY GOING TO MISS ALL MY ADAM FANS OUT THERE BUT OUR JOB ISN’T DONE YET……VOTE TONIGHT LIKE ITS THE LAST NIGHT BECAUSE IT IS!!!!!!!!!!!! GO ADAM!!!!!!!!!

  84. To All ADAM Lovers: I don’t think you Kris fans would be interested in this) I Don’t know if you saw FOX news this morning predicted ADAM winner tonight..Also NY Times article: ADAM winner, Kris Runner up..

    I don’t know if you all have checked the Zabasearch website..They stand by their statement that ADAM received the most votes every night so far…Ryan had him stand by the bottom 3 that night for a little drama..Also last week, he never stated how ADAM came in but sort of made you think he came in second..Zabasearch says ADAM came in first last week also…That AI producers like to give a little added drama and excitement..Also the winner (ADAM) will be on the morning shows Thursday morning…Won’t that be exciting??

    However, all that does not mean we can rest tonight….VOTE, VOTE, VOTE FOR ADAM..Lets give him the win he so deserves!!

  85. Just so that you hear how silly you sound,…

    THIS IS NO CONTEST! KRIS HAS NO COMPETITION! IT IS A DONE DEAL! KRIS WILL WIN IN LANDSLIDE FASHION!! WHY EVEN RUN THE SHOW TONIGHT? WE ALREADY KNOW THAT THERE IS NOBOY ON THIS EARTH WHO IS A BETTER SINGER THAN KRIS ALLEN!

    lmao. It will be a great night because Kris and Adam have gifts. It is going to be a tight race and it is both of their crowns to win or lose.

    Danny and Kris fans, UNITE FOR KRIS!!!!!!

  86. I believe Adam will win. However I prefer the kind of music Kris sings. Both deserve win the competition. They’re fantastic on their style of music. Good luck to both!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I do enjoy watching American Idol. Bye!

    From Rio de Janeiro – Brazil

  87. All of the news stations are drinking the Adam Kool-Aid. They need to get real. Adam is not a shoe-in by any stretch of the imagination. Kris is so incredibly talented and likeable that he will win tonight.

  88. Mornin’ Phyllis G…I have been up and at ’em since the crack of dawn…So excited about tonight…I have got work to do but can’t seem to stay off this web site..I don’t know what I’m going to do after this is over..Will miss you all..GO ADAM!!!

  89. Mary Anne-Nashville-ADAM #1,
    I have been to that site every week and never brought it up here.Ratings did have a lot to do with it though cause CBS was putting the hurt on fox.And yes Adam has had the most votes every week.

  90. Chris W, how do you know that Adam had the most votes every week? That information is not public. Stop making things up.

  91. The info I got was from a news website purely for American Idol. I’m not saying that Kris is an AMAZING singer! I’m saying he’s an AMAZING ARTIST. He takes a special person to be able to put his own twist on songs. Adam was once told by SIMON himself regarding the Johnny Cash song that it was rubbish. I do love Adam’a rendition of Tracks of my Tears. However, I feel he NOW feels that need to do his signature scream on every song. He is an amazing performer and has a great voice, I just don’t think as a RECORDING ARTIST, that he would be better than Kris. That is what I am saying. I think Adam would give a wonderful live concert and would be fun. That does not say for his recording ability. It takes talent, not just singing ability, to be able to arrange a song, write a song, PLAY instruments! I think Kris is a great overall artist. He can sing, maybe not as strong as Adam, but he still can sing. He can play MULTIPLE instruments. He can arrange songs. I’m not saying that Adam is horrible, he’s not! I’m just saying as an overall, I think Kris is a better MUSICIAN!!!! I’m not saying better singer, I’m saying better MUSICIAN.

  92. CALEB……I DON’T THINK SOOOOOOOOOO. HE IS ENTERTAINMENT….I THINK KRIS MESSED UP A LOT MORE……BUT YOU ARE ENTITLED TO YOUR OPINION…..

    HI MARY ANNE…..WHEN THIS IS OVER I WILL DEFINITELY HAVE IDOL WITHDRAWALS…..I’LL HAVE TO GET INTO THE BACHELORETTE!!!!LOL

  93. I am not going to respond to Caleb, I am not going respond to Caleb – repeat over and over until it is out of your system, Kathleen.

    ADAM LAMBERT has the MOST AMAZING VOICE, TONE, RHYTHM, ORIGINALITY, VERSATILITY, PHRASING, etc…………….. THE WORLD KNOWS A WINNER.

    VOTE FOR ADAM FOR FOUR HOURS TONIGHT

  94. Caleb,
    This is the reason I never brought up the zabasearch site here cause I knew people like you would not understand that there are people out there that can track the votes.That being said I will also admit that they are not 100% accurate because if they were last week it would have been kris going home and not danny.

  95. For the all the news sites, etc. They need to make sure they are not putting their foot in their mouth, cuz that’s what they will be doing if Kris wins. IF Kris wins, a lot of people will be putting their foot in their mouths. So I wouldn’t make an predicitions just yet. It all depends on tonight. Should be a good show-down, just like Simon said, well, in his own English words.

  96. A-Bass — THIS IS A SINGING CONTEST!!!!!!!!

    SINGING, SINGING, SINGING – playing instruments has NO part in the competition. ADAM arranges his songs, Kris has been told by the judges that he did an exact cover and did NOT make it his own – including “Apologize.” No one has ever said that about ADAM.

    ADAM has the voice, the performance and the TALENT – his arrangements are incredible.

    VOTE FOR THE BEST SINGER – ADAM

  97. Hi Phyllis G. Things are going to get exciting as the day goes by- I can’t wait for tonight. Rolling Stone has stated that they will perform one song that is their own pick, one song that is picked for them by the show creator Simon Fuller, and the coronation song – I don’t know what that is except they both sing the same song with their own interpretation.

    I don’t know where this information comes from, but it sounds about right. Rolling Stone did an article on “How ADAM can lose his spot as the favorite tonight – it was sort of interesting, but I found it to be rather dumb – ADAM wouldn’t do the things they said would cause him to lose his edge. f course, on a positive note – that means they believe he has the edge to begin with and they are agreeing that he is the favored to win.

  98. Phyllis. Come on. “He is entertainment?” hahaha…that is funny.

    And again, I repeat. “Apologize” was not an exact cover. An exact cover would have needed more instruments. Get your facts straight.

    Kris is the better choice. It is difficult to sing and play an instrument, and even more difficult to play more than one kind of instrument (not at the same time; that would be ridiculous!) Kris has the chops, skills, and the knowledge of music theory to excel. Thankfully, he does not need to cover up flaws with theatricality. He is not perfect, but dang near close! This competition is about talent. And there is a reason why instruments are allowed. Singing and playing an instrument shows mad talent. Adam cant do that.

    Kris is the next American Idol.

  99. This is NOT called American SINGING Contest. This is AMERICAN IDOL. It is to look for an ALL AROUND ARTIST…..not just a singer. Anybody can sing, like Simon says. Anyone can sing. It’s what you do EXTRA that makes you an American Idol. As for you said about Adam NEVER being told stuff by the judges, he was told by SIMON himself, the most honest judge, that his rendition of Ring of Fire was RUBBISH! Kris has NEVER been told that when he put his OWN spin on a song, that it was horrible. He has only done basically ONE song EXACTLY like the cover, and it was Apologize. Something that was not him, and too much associated with David Archuletta from last year. Bad song choice for him. He did what he could do with it. The judges PRAISE Kris for his ability to arrange his songs AND play an instrument. Like I’ve said before, ADAM IS A STRONGER SINGER, NOT DENYING THAT ONE!!!!! But as an OVERALL ARTIST, Kris is better. The judges are CONSTANTLY saying that are looking for the WHOLE package. Adam can sing, Adam can perform….there’s no doubting that one. And like I said before, when the season started, I liked Adam a lot. As the season has gone on, I believe that Kris has shown that he is able to beat out the critics and I can tell you, his album will be big. I also though do agree Allison SHOULD NOT have gone home when she did. I’m not worried though, she’ll make an album and it will sell. Kris arranged every song EXCEPT Apologize and was told he should have changed it. HOWEVER, he learn the piano part for the song AND the guitar part for Heartless…….it takes talent to sing, and play the piano and the guitar. It’s not simple. Adam just doesn’t have that talent part to him. He has the performance talent part to him. Their are both amazing in their own aspects and they are both very talented, in different ways, but still both very talented. I’m not trying to take away from Adam’s talent. All I’m saying is that as an OVERALL package deal, like the judges are ALWAYS saying that they are looking for, Kris has more of it than Adam. That doesn’t mean that Adam is amazing in his own aspect.

  100. KATHLEEN F
    I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU…THERE IS NO WAY THAT ADAM CAN MESS UP……HE HAS DONE SO WELL ALL SEASON……THIS DAY CANNOT GO FAST ENOUGH FOR…..I AM SO LOOKING FORWARD TO TONIGHT LIKE I’VE DONE EVERY WEEK SINCE THE BEGINNING AND THAT IS BECAUSE OF ADAM….I WANT TO SEE WHAT HE IS GOING TO DO WITH HIS MUSIC TONIGHT…..
    VOTE ADAM ALL THE WAY – 4 HOURS STRAIGHT….

  101. chris w…Yes, I have known ADAM had the most votes each week for some time…That was logical!!I was reluctant to bring it up and start World War III…That is the reason I put ATTENTION ADAM LOVERS and the fact that I didn’t think Kris fans would be interested..I am not one to argue and fight and didn’t want to upset anyone…but there is no way for me to contact the ADAM fans except by using this post…So, there it is for all the world to see..But we can’t take anything for granted and must VOTE, VOTE, VOTE, ADAM Tonight!!!

  102. Go ADAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    VOTE, vote, vote, vote, vote, vote, vote, vote,VOTE, vote, vote, vote, vote, vote, vote, vote, VOTE, vote, vote, vote, vote, vote, vote, vote,VOTE, vote, vote, vote, vote, vote, vote, vote, VOTE, vote, vote, vote, vote, vote, vote, vote,VOTE, vote, vote, vote, vote, vote, vote, vote, VOTE, vote, vote, vote, vote, vote, vote, vote,VOTE, vote, vote, vote, vote, vote, vote, vote

  103. I think we have 3 American Idols this year, in any other year, with out each other in contest, Danny, Kris and Adam would have won.

    I don’t understand why Adam even needs Idol to launch his career, he beyond Idol already!

    As big of an Adam Fan as I am, Kris has my vote,I like his style better.

  104. Instruments were not allowed originally, due to the fact that this is a singing competition. Many contestants asked to use their instruments because they were more comfortable singing that way. So AI allowed instruments, but that is not what we are supposed to be voting on – it is a SINGING contest. As far as the comment on “exact cover and instruments” – you can have an exact cover with NO instruments and it is still an exact cover VOCALLY.

  105. Kris did not copy the original “Apologize” exactly. I guess that you really do not know the song, huh?

    I vote for the best performer, Kris Allen. I recommend that everyone else does the same, or AI runs the risk of being a mockery.

  106. KATHLEEN F….I COULDN’T HAVE SAID IT BETTER.
    CALEB…THIS IS AMERICA AND WE ARE ALL ENTITLED TO OUR OPINIONS…..AND JUST TO BE HONEST…I HAVE BEEN ON THIS SITE FOR A LONG TIME AND THE ADAM FANS HAD TO ENDURE A LOT OF ADAM BASHING. THE ADAM FANS HAVE HANDLED IT VERY WELL…..
    VOTE FOR THE BEST……ADAM…..LET OUR VOTES SPEAK FOR US!!!!!! GO ADAM FANS

  107. Think about this, if a person plays a few chords and sings along with their won playing, it is easier than keeping time with other musicians. When you are the guitar player and singer in one – it is only your own rhythm that you must keep up with. I am not saying that Kris doesn’t have talent, he does… if not for ADAM I would be a fan of his and at this stage in the competition, I would be a voter for him. I personally don’t think he has the talent, vocal and performance ability that ADAM has – he WOWS his audience and people around the world LOVE him.

  108. AI does not run risk of being a mockery, if Adam wins, it is because America Loves him, Kris and Danny, and he got slightly more votes. if Kris win’s it is because America loves them and he got slightly more votes.

    I think most people feel they are both GREAT

  109. Sorry – that was “own” playing, (not won) and it is ADAM who WOWS his audience.

    VOTE FOR ADAM, ADAM, ADAM

  110. I am not going to lower myself and respond to these people…that can’t see that ADAM is so far superior…How pathetic can you get?? I’m going to get off and hope they are gone when I come back..Nice chatting with you Phyllis, Kathleen and all ADAM lovers…Good Luck!!
    ADAM – WORLD IDOL!!!

  111. Instruments also show versatility as an artist. I said it before, ANYBODY can be a singer. But to be an ARTIST, a MUSICIAN, it takes an instrument. Let’s talk Elvis, an amazing singer, perform, musician, I’m sure we all can agree on that one……plays the guitar! Johnny Cash, AMAZING, plays the guitar. Elton John, GREAT PERFORMER and ARTIST, plays the piano. I could go on and on! I don’t know why you people think I’m saying that Adam is horrible, cuz I’m not! I THINK HE IS GREAT AND IS A WONDERFUL PERFORMER!!!!!!! I’m just saying as a WHOLE PACKAGE…….Kris is an artist, NOT just a singer.

  112. One more thing, 99% of musicians, singer-songwriters, etc. play some musical instrument..The most common are piano and/or guitar…They all know the basics and a few cords, some are more accomplished than others.

    Most artists perform with an instrument until they feel comfortable without using the instrument as a crutch…That is what it is most of the time..Yes, if you play piano or guitar you can see that Kris only knows a few cords to play along..He is not a Pianist nor is he a guitarist…He is a mere singer…

    I’m sure ADAM plays one or more instruments but is so comfortable without playing that he prefers not to..He does not need anything at all but himself!!! GO ADAM!!!

  113. Yes, Elvis played the guitar at first, but not after he got really comfortable…Also Johnny Cash did play the guitar but later on appeared without the guitar..Yes, Elton John continues to play piano because he prefers to..but I can mame you tons that played at first that stopped playing instruments as they became famous.. GO ADAM!!!

  114. Kris is a “good singer” but not as versatile as Adam. Kris has no power and his vocal range is limited. He is a mediocre musician. He sang and strummed rhythm guitar.. I don’t recall him playing any leads on either instrument. Kris himself admits he doesn’t play the piano/keyboards well and is self taught. Remember it’s only lately that AI permitted the contestants to play their instruments in the competition but having the ability to play an instrument is NOT A REQUIREMENT. Vocal and arrangement abilities, versatility, charisma, stage presence being able to “morph” into any genre they throw at the contestants ARE REQUIREMENTS.

    ADAM has met them all in EVERY performance.
    AMAZING + AWESOME = ADAM = AMERICAN IDOL

  115. CORRECTION – CHORD – I knew better…Slip of the fingers.. GO ADAM!!!

  116. To all Adam fans, vote, vote, vote tonite. Lets not take any thing for granted. Let hope and pray that America sees the great talent this guy has. He’s difinately a star.

    Can’t wait for tonite, to see what Adam will do. Go Adam!

  117. HELLO DONNA (FORT LAUDERDALE)
    ANY ADAM FAN…YEAH…..YOU GO GIRL….I REALLY LIKED YOUR COMMENT…..
    ADAM ALL THE WAY……

  118. Phyllis, Donna and Kathleen…I’m really going now…Later…..GO ADAM!!!

  119. Why do people insist on bashing someone’s talent? NOT ONCE have I said anything bad about Adam. I have actually sat here and PRAISED him and said that he has an amazing, strong voice and is a wonderful performer. Why take away from someone that is able to play not one, but two instruments?!?!?! If you listen to Apologize, Kris played the WHOLE piano part of that song. If anyone is a musician, which I am myself. I’ve played piano for 15 years now, and also saxophone and drums, one would understand that it IS NOT simple to play along and sing at the same time. If he only knew a few cords, he wouldn’t have been able to perform Heartless, or She works hard for the money (HE WAS THE ONLY GUITAR OUT THERE……ALL THE MUSICIANS WERE ON STAGE WITH HIM), or Falling Slowly. Please don’t take away from someone’s ability to sing and play an instrument because it is not simple. If it was, we’d have a million Joe Who Knows Who singing and playing an instrument. And if you are saying that, then what are you saying for all the greats who play an instrument and sing at the same time? You think Johnny Cash or Elvis weren’t comfortable on stage?!?!? Seriously? I’m not bashing Adam. All I said was Kris can plays instruments. Don’t take that away from someone who LEARNED how to sing and play and instrument. It doesn’t come to you just because you are musically inclined. You have to learn.

  120. A-Bass

    ANYBODY CAN BE A SINGER, AND IT TAKES AN INSTRUMENT TO BE A MUSICIAN, AN ARTIST??????????????????????

    Oh well. now I know why you like Kris better – with your ideas that there is no talent involved in singing, you should probably not watch and comment on a SINGING CONTEST.

    If ANYBODY can be a singer, why do we even have a SINGING contest?
    And why are some contestants better than others (without instruments).

    Of course, there are talented singers, some more than others and they don’t play or have to play an instrument in order to be good. Again, people who choose to use an instrument with their singing have only their own timing to be concerned about and that does not make them more talented or more of an artist. The true SINGING artist has great vocals, arrangements, versatility, performance, tone, diction, rhythm, phrasing and has been properly trained to use his body to hold notes and perform with strength and knows when to soften his voice, knows where to put in runs, and knows how to improvise. ADAM has all of these qualities and more. Kris, although good hasn’t held a note for any length of time and his range is perfectly average. I am pointing this out, not to put Kris down, but only for comparison purposes and to make my point.

    VOTE FOR THE BEST – ADAM LAMBERT

  121. Hi there Phyllis G – thanks for the compliment on my post but I was only stating fact.

    Later, Mary Anne – have a pleasant day. =]

    I have not “bashed” Kris in any of my posts. I simply compared the two contestants. I give credit where credit is due. Kris IS a good vocalist and his personality is likable but in my opinion – to which I am entitled and free to express in my posts here – he is not outstanding enough to merit the title of AI. To EARN the title of AI the competition requires the contestant to be OUTSTANDINGLY proficient in vocal and arrangement abilities in the various genre of music and a stage presence performance that WOWS both the audience and the judges. Whether or not the contestant is a musician is not a factor.

  122. Hey, Ron…Because he is G-U-D…GOOD!! Everyone with any music sense at all is voting for him…But we can’t get lazy…We have to VOTE, VOTE, VOTE ADAM… TONIGHT!!!

  123. I’ve realized something, Kris, thus far, is a one hit wonder.
    I’ve been googling American Idol 2009 videos and have run into many Adam Lambert and Kris Allen videos but all of Kris’s videos are “Heartless”.
    Is that all he’s got?

  124. Again, you read into what I saw to manipulate into what you want to understand. I’VE NEVER SAID THAT ADAM CAN’T SING!!!!!!!! NEVER HAVE I SAID KRIS WAS A BETTER SINGER THAN ADAM!!!!!! THIS IS NOT JUST A SINGING CONTEST!!!!!!!! THIS IS IDOL!!!!!!!!!! ALL THE JUDGES SAY THEY WANT THE WHOLE PACKAGE, NOT JUST A SINGER!!!!!! Never said their wasn’t TALENT in singing…..I was saying, DON’T take away from someone’s talent of being able to PLAY instruments AS WELL as sing. I’ve even admitted that ADAM is the stronger SINGER between the two! And yes, the definition, according to dictionary.com of a MUSICIAN is an INSTRUMENTAL player. So yes, it takes an instrument to be a musician. When you play an instrument, you have to make sure you are in sync with the band….so not only do you have to sing, think about what chords to play, but you have to stay in sync with the band. If you don’t stay in sync with the band, you end up looking like an idiot trying to play an instrument and sing. Kris has NOT done that. And honestly, I like Adam’s style of music better. I have almost PURELY all rock albums. I’ve said good things about BOTH idol contestants. I just said that I feel that Kris is the better MUSICIAN!!!! And since the definition of a MUSICIAN is a instrument player, I think he definetly wins that one! 🙂

  125. Donna, I wasn’t referring to you in the bashing comment I put. I just feel it is unfair to bash anyone with any musical ability, whether it is JUST singing or ability to play an instrument, with or without singing. Musical ability is a gift otherwise we’d all be on Idol and winning. Both are them are amazing in their own way. I just got really upset when someone in here tried to say that it doesn’t take talent to play an instrument, or they tried to say he does it cuz he’s no comfortable on stage. Why make excuses?!?!? Give them some credit! Do you think you could get up on a stage in front of thousands live, and then millions on tv and perform like the do? NOT EASY!!! I commend all the contestants cuz they got some balls!

  126. A- Bass – this will be my last response on this subject, but you did say in #132 exactly what I repeated in my post #142 and AMERICAN IDOL IS A SINGING CONTEST. PERIOD. If you don’t think a person’s voice is not his instrument, please reconsider……

    Enough of this, we both have our views and if you agree that ADAm is a better singer, I am not sure why we are having this discussion- it is a SINGING competition. That is what AMERICAN IDOL says, not me….. otherwise every contestant would have to play an instrument just to get picked. It is A SINGING COMPETITION.

    VOTE FOR THE BEST SINGER = ADAM LAMBERT

  127. Hey girls/guys, stop the war of words and get on with the voting for ADAM. I cannot vote, so please vote on my behalf and make the new King of Rock and Roll win!!!! Vote ADAM for Adam the World Idol!

  128. Alfie, as soon as the polls open, I will be voting for our favorite singer=

    ADAM ADAM ADAM ADAM ADAM ADAM ADAM ADAM ADAM ADAM ADAM

  129. Thanks Kathleen, this young wonder called Adam MUST win. The world hasn’t seen talent like this since Elvis!!

  130. Thanks Kathleen, By the way, it is now 7:15 pm locally and I cannot wait for our local TV to broadcast the final show which is running a week behind the US broadcast. Keep up the voting!!!

  131. A-Bass, thank you for acknowledging my post. I have been around musicians all my life and married what I and others consider a virtuoso rock musician, who btw played in 3 various genre bands simultaneously. It’s true that one’s music ability is a gift – not everyone is blessed with that talent. A vocalist is considered a musician in his/her own right as a instrumentalist by definition.

    I don’t think anyone should take offense because of another’s contestant choice. We all have various preferences. This is a discussion forum where everyone voices their own idea of who they think has earned the title of AI and why. It should not be a popularity contest – but in the end that’s what it has always turned out to be in the past AI competitions.

    My personal opinion is that in the end this competition should have been Adam and Allison or Adam and Danny. I’m pleased that the competition didn’t end up that way because I think the competition would’ve been more fierce, for lack of a better word.

    My choice is Adam for the title of AI because his all of his performances, not matter the genre, have been consistently original and amazingly entertaining. For Simon to give a standing ovation to Adam was not only a surprise but gave credence to the opinion that Adam was the contestant who out performed all the other contestants. Furthermore, to have ALL FOUR judges in agreement about Adam’s performance is just icing on the cake.

    I say all this not to take away from Kris’ performances but to make comparison and give opine of the two contestants.

    My vote has been for Adam and Allison from the very first show. Now my vote is solely for Adam whose performances have proved him to be the AI.

  132. Thanks,Kathleen F.for your comment.
    I like all your posts. Very well said!
    And to all Adam’s funs :enjoy his great performance tonight and vote million times.
    He is worth it!!!!

  133. I’m a huge Adam fan and believe that between him and Kris that Adam is truly the most vocally talented of the two. While Kris does have a good voice, he just doesn’t perform vocally at the same level Adam does. Adam is original and has entertained us each and every week.

    My concern is that those who voted for Danny (my second favorite) will combine their votes with Kris’ fans and Kris will win. If you’re an Adam fan, you need to vote, vote, vote!

  134. ADAM FAN SAFRICA….I WILL VOTE FOR YOU AND ALL ADAM FANS THAT CAN’T…

    ANNIE….I JUST LOVE ADAM AND IN CONCERT HE WILL BE AWESOME SO THAT IS WHY I CHOOSE TO VOTE FOR ADAM…..KRIS IS A CROONER AND MELLOW ON THE EARS….IF HE CHOOSES TO SING THE CLASSICS I WILL PURCHASE HIS CD IN A NEW YORK HEARTBEAT…..BUT FOR CHARISMA AND STYLE…ADAM IS THE MAN…….THE SINGER AND THE ENTERTAINER…..GO ADAM…..

  135. Hey guys!! Nice to see everybody back here again. 🙂 I really think people are underestimating the power of Glamberts. We know what we want and I’m pretty sure we’re gonna get it!! Can’t wait for tonight – For once i’m actually gonna enjoy voting!! Start charging your phones! HAPPY ADAM DAY!!

  136. Everyone hears and sees things differently and so “vive la difference”.

    If we all thought and felt the same way, life would be very boring. A-Bass is right in saying that Kris is a better musician because he can play at least two instruments.

    As I have said in other posts, I like both Adam and Kris and think they will both have a future in the business.

    “La difference” as I see it is that I believe Adam Lambert has the potential to become an international Mega Star. This is just my opinion and only time will tell.

    There are many people who have great talent but never made it to the big time. The one factor that none of us can foresee and which we must never forget, is the KEY ingredient of LUCK.

    That being said, I wish both the best of luck tonight and the winner will be decided by the fast fingers of the votes so who knows.

    If talent and potential are the major components, Adam should win but we will see.

  137. A-Bass, I am with you! The Adam fanatics do twist words. And believe me, it is really hard to play an instrument and sing at the same time. I think that only singing (aka. N Sync, Britney Spears, Spice Girls, Miley Cyrus, etc…. all gimmicks) is so much easier than singing and playing (aka. Billy Joel, Ray Charles, Elvis, the Beatles, Alicia Keys, John Meyer…All outstanding musicians)

    There is no contest when it comes to talent: Kris is so much more talented that Adam.

    Kris has my 1000’s of votes.

  138. I’ve been voting for Adam since the first vote show. I use my cell to text. I have a Motorola Navigator. Does anyone else have this model. Do you know if I can just hit resend each time or do as I have been doing – retyping “VOTE” and Adam’s # each time… Last week in two hours I sent 350 votes.. I’d like to be able to double that number.

  139. Adam should be the next American idol. I am from Canada and I can’t vote. Please America vote for this amazing singer. He has consistently been the best all season. He is the reason most of my colleages watch AI. My girlfriends and I have already bought tickets to attend the summer tour in the US. Don’t disappoint – vote as many times as you can.

  140. Caleb – it is easy to be selective when trying to make a point but the point here is that we each have different perspectives and that is healthy so vote your way and let others vote theirs and may the fastest fingers win.

    Some top artistes who have never played an instrument include:

    Celine Dion
    Carrie Underwood
    Kelly Clarkson
    Frank Sinatra
    Englebert
    Josh Groban

    I hope tonight will be a great show and I look forward to seeing some of those who were knocked out along the way in tomorrow show.

  141. I was a Danny Gokey fan – but do feel all of the top three were worthy. I am rooting for Kris Allen – but believe that Adam is extremely talented. Good luck to both of them tonight.

  142. Bubba,

    Between the two we can vote on, one plays multiple instruments well and sings in tune with great quality and the other does not play any instruments, sometimes sings out of tune and, frankly, is quite scary.

    My decision is made. And to all of the undecided voters out there, vote for Kris, the true talent!

  143. adam adam all the way, I feel he should receive the TITLE of american idol, they are both talented. But I seem to like more of Adam’s talent, his look, his attitude, his voice and his amazing ability to be who he is!!!! I’m voting for Adam all the way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  144. I VOTE FOR ADAM LAMBERT PERSONALLY, WELL BECAUSE HE JUST HAS THAT AURA IN HIS VOICE. GOING BACK TO THAT DUET HE DID WITH ALLISON. I THOUGHT THAT WAS AMAAAAAAAAAZING. GO ADAM.I LOVE KRIS ALLEN TOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  145. The judges, who are music experts, have unanimously praised every one of Adam’s performances. Simon gave him a standing ovation – he’s NEVER done that for any other contestant. That is enough proof for me that I’m making the right choice in voting for ADAM as I have from the first voting show.

    ADAM’S incredible talent both amazes and awes me.

  146. Donna, Donna, Donna,…

    It is a reality show, controlled by producers. Simon Cowell has been with the show for a long time; don’t you think that the producers have gotten their claws into him by now? Get real! The judges are puppets.

  147. If Simon Cowell is a puppet, then why did he say he is disappointed in the voting – enough that if America doesn’t get it right he may not stay on AI. This was in last week’s TV guide magazine. He was particularly upset about last year’s upset when David Archuleta did not win, and Simon said David A should have been the American Idol. I really doubt that if he was a puppet, he would have praised David A. throughout the competition and he would not be saying these things now because I am sure the producers would like him to continue to agree with them, IF he and the others were just puppets.

    This is THE reason Simon reminded everyone last week to vote for ADAM – he is truly behind him, believes he is the best SINGER (it is a singing competition after all). When the other judges all stated ADAM would be in the finals, Simon said, it is important for America to vote – and Paula could be heard restating what Simon said.

    SO, I BELIEVE AMERICA HAS GOT TO GET THIS RIGHT – VOTE FOR ADAM

  148. Courtney, Simon Cowel is so outspoken, he is no puppet, we see him in England and see the comments he makes at all contestants, he is not under anhy producer’s thumb. He is always brutally ownest, if he gives a standing ovation is because he thinks that Adam DESERVES it. Do you think the judges are getting paid to give false comments? They have nothing to gain, especially Simon. Adam Lambert is talented, he does not need to attach an instrument to make him look good. Don’t you people think that someone who studied music does actually know how to play a musical instrument? He does not need one, he has his fantastic voice that holds the audience attention, all eyes fixed on him. I will be watching the show from the web, and I will be voting from England. GO ADAM GO, GET YOUR AMERICAN IDOL TITLE, VOTE, VOTE, VOTE ADAM LAMBERT.

  149. The producers can tell Simon what to say, but they cannot control the voting. (hopefully) He is a glorified actor. Sorry to break it to you.

  150. The producers have Simon on the show because he is outspoken, they cannot keep his mouth closed or control what he wants to say. Because of his statements lots of people watch shows like this, if he does not like something he says so no matter who gets upset. He is behind Adam because he recognises true talent, and because ADAM LAMBERT is the best.

  151. The show relies on it’s own popularity and drama sells. Of course the producers know that and they also know that they PAY these people. If the show tanks then the judges, producers, marketers, do not get MONEY. They want the judges to be controversial because more people will watch the show that way. It is ALL about ratings. I am sure that this is all planned out in their evil minds. It is in poor taste to have the judges act in the way that they have acted recently.

    I just hope that the country sees through their childish antics and notices Kris and votes him to his rightful position as the next American Idol. Because he is the only one left with true star quality.

  152. LOL Courtney, Courtney, Courtney…

    Your remark about Simon Cowel being a puppet is so laughable. As I stated before the judge’s are music experts and their accomplishments prove my point. I’ll quote from an article I just read regarding Cowel’s biography of achievements – believe me, sweetness, he is NO puppet and neither are the other three.

    “Not only has Simon made records, he also breaks them: over a ten year period, via his company ‘S Records’, he has achieved sales of over 25 million albums, over 70 top 30 records, and 17 Number 1 singles. His band ‘Westlife’ has achieved an impressive 10 Number 1 hits alone.”

    Simon Cowel is his own person and is way too talented in his uncanny ear for talent and way to successful in the music industry to have to be a puppet for any reality show producer. LOL

  153. I’m not sure of the control, Simon makes a lot of money on his own and works hard traveling back and forth.
    I also get the impression he gets bored easy, so I’m not certain how much control they have over him…

  154. If what Courtney alleges about the judges being paid to be puppets and “it’s all planned out in their (the AI producers) evil minds” I then I really feel sorry for Kris – because that guarantees the title for ADAM… LOL

  155. sorry I got so excited about replying to Courtney’s allegations I left out some words… my post should have read…

    If what Courney alleges about the judges being paid to be puppets and “it’s all planned out in their (the judges’) evil minds” IS TRUE then I really feel sorry for Kris because that guarantees the title for ADAM… LOL

  156. hahaha… why do you think that I am so vocal about this? Because Kris fans need to be heard and hopefully together we can turn the tide against the producers. I feel a revolution coming tonight!!!

    And I don’t know about you all, but resumes never stopped people from receiving bribes… Simon Cowell is a human being and is just a susceptible as the next person.

    Kris supporters UNITE!!!!

  157. I think Kris’s funs have runned out of comments about Adam so they now turned on the judges, they have to find an excuse why Kris will not be the American Idol, so now it is the judges and the producers, nothing to do with the fact that the most talented of the two will be crowned American Idol, and that is ADAM LAMBERT.

  158. Hi Jen!

    I haven’t heard anything on Ruben and Clay. To be honest, I don’t think they are doing to great in the music business. At least not at the moment. I have also heard that Ruben was struggling with his weight. I never hear them perform on the idol. Nice to me you and take care. I am really looking forward to seeing who America will pick.

  159. Toni – you took the words right out of my keyboard… LOL

    Amazing + Awesome = Adam = American Idol

  160. Frankly, I was sympathetic to the Adam lovers who were getting hurt from the blunt comments about Adam. I was being respectful of that. It doesn’t negate the fact that this is a REALITY SHOW. If anyone doesn’t understand how the world of television works, then let me remind you that shows get cancelled if their ratings plummet. Why would the producers of a cash-cow like AI let that ever happen? You may believe in your heart of hearts that Adam is a “rock-god” as Kara spouted. You can follow that path all you want; I wont stop you. But when Adam concludes his 15 minutes of fame, he will be auditioning in the cattle calls just like all of the other washed-up reality stars.

    Kris has more substance that Adam and will do well in the industry. Danny will probably outshine all of the other finalists.

    So, go Kris. :^)

  161. In 3 hours and 40 minutes I will be watching the show from England, I cannot wait to see Adam perform. And Hotshot, Adam will be performing for many years to come. There has not been anyone like him on all the American Idol’s, that is why he is so popular, not just in America but all over the world, he is a WORLD IDOL, WE LOVE HIM.

  162. Adam is well aware of the “cattle calls” as he said “it’s hard to make it out there” but lets remember what this show gives you and some of you may know better than me but I believe you get a free record deal plus other perks so yes it is eventually up to the performer, one big difference, America (World) knows you now!

  163. Courtney, these reality have really big ratings because ‘it is reality’ not because it is manipulated in any way by the producers. And by the way, if the kind of shows you watch are ‘cattle calls’ no wonder you cannot pick real talent, Adam funs on the other hand have better taste and are able to recognise real talent in ADAM LAMBERT.

  164. Adam, we love you in Bermuda!! America, get it right please. Adam is the better SINGER of the two, although I like Kris. Adam is unique, talented, good looking, and awesome!

  165. I’ve found that if one ignores negativism it looks for greener pastures. Let’s not feed this one…

  166. I take it that you do not. A cattle call is an audition where large amounts of hopefuls are amassed. The casting agents quickly go through and the odds of getting the role are frighteningly slim. THAT is the situation ADAM will be in once his 15 minutes are up.

    On the other hand, Kris is a true artist and will produce great things. Go Kris!

  167. COURTNEY….YOU NEED A REALITY CHECK IF YOU THINK THAT KRIS HAS THAT KIND OF PRESENCE IN THIS BUSINESS. YES, HE IS VERY GOOD AND I WILL BUY HIS CD BUT HE IS JUST ANOTHER CLAY AIKEN….TALK ABOUT 15 MINUTES OF FAME!!!!!
    NOW ADAM DEFINITELY HAS STAYING POWER….HE IS A TRUE ENTERTAINER…HE CAN DO ALL KINDS OF MUSIC AND DO IT WELL…..WIN OR LOSE TONIGHT HE IS GOING TO MAKE IT IN THIS BUSINESS AND THAT YOU CAN TAKE TO THE BANK!!!!!!

  168. We shall see, huh? I bet that within one year, Adam Lambert will be completely off the radar.

    Kris will win and will go on to achieve great things.

  169. ADAM DEBE GANAR, LO SIENTO POR KRIS PERO REALMENTE NO ES TAN BUENO COMO ADAM ADEMAS QUE NO MERECE ESTAR EN LA FINAL, FUE UNA REAL PENA VER A DANNY Y A ALLISON IRSE PORQUE ELLOS MERECIAN SER EL TOP 3, PERO BUENO..ADAM ES ORIGINAL, ES UN ARTISTA QUE APORTA ALGO NUEVO A LA INDUSTRIA DE LA MUSICA, KRIS ES SOLO UNO MAS, ESPERO QUE SE REPITA EL ERROR DE RUBBEN X FAVOR.VOTE X ADAMM VOTE X THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  170. Agreed with Nicholas – welcome to the international fans!!!

    VOTE FOR THE BEST – ADAM

  171. Courtney, it is too late, ADAM IS ALREADY THE WINNER BY MILES, ALL THAT REMAINS IS TO BE CROWNED AMERICAN IDOL.

  172. NOT VOTING- NOT WATCHING- The obsense OVERKILL THAT SIMON HAS FLAUNTED -on oprah ? on Katy Perry’s cape? this is BOLLYWOOD- AND eLVIS IS ONE FOR THE MONEY 2 FOR THE SHOW SIMON IS RANTING AND RAVING LIKE HE HAS THE HOTS FOR ADAM- TOTALLY TURNED ME OFF- Danny clearly was the most likable ,Talented , UNIQUE VOICE AND TALENT – AND I HATE THE ADAM LOOK -(I DON’T CARE THAT’S HE GUY- OR FAKE GAY-) HE JUST DRESSES LIKE A IDIOT ROCKER FROM 10 YRS AGO- KRIS IS OK- BUT REALLY ????? THESE ARE THE TOP 2 ? ALYSON HAD MORE TALENT THAN KRIS- WAY MORE- IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN ALYSON AND DANNY -PERIOD- BUT THE Adam campaign by Simon – was So stinking Obvious ..i refuse to watch – as our AZ Republic said- (Who Cares !) i agree with Suzanne & Randy ..So So Over the Top with the ADAM campaign- this is a contest ? then why couldn’t i get through last week to VOTE for Danny ? Busy signal – just Sick- (Dancing w Stars –much more Fair in there Voting-Process and “Comments” Maybe the Idol Franchise needs to rethink pssing so many people off – calling it a contest – when its really just a Vechile Show to make Simon his next Million-or TEN – We were going to go to the Concert – but now decided not to watch final – or buy ticket s – i’ll wait for Danny’s Release – i ain’t no fan of that Fake Elvis-

  173. Hey there, Ron, Phyllis and Donna..and all of you ADAM Lovers…You all have a live one don’t you?? Finally, after all this time, a person that knows everything!!Looks like it has been going on about an hour and a half now…Can’t tell a person like that anything…She already knows it all..

    If she does not see ADAM’S Superior talent, just wait until after the show tomorrow night, when ADAM wins..Bet she won’t have much to say then..I won’t waste my time and can ignore her..Just remember VOTE, VOTE, VOTE, FOR ADAM -WORLD IDOL!!!!!

  174. I also notice all ADAM Lovers except for one..That should tell her something..Oh I forgot, she already knows everything…VOTE ADAM – WORLD IDOL!!!

  175. It is reported that Simon Cowell earns between 65 and 80 million dollars per year – why in the world would he even consider a bribe. How much would someone have to pay him to have it even entice him. He is looking for talent – it is what he does………and that is how he makes his money.

    If the producers have bribed him, then they bribed the other judges, too, and as it was pointed out – this would mean that ADAM is the winner.

    ADAM has already become much larger than Kris – as far as the chatter he generates, on talk shows, entertainment weekly, MTV etc, The american Idol site has a screen where you see how many blogs different topics have received. Adam Lambert’s site has a staggering 11 million hits to Kris’s 2 million. 15 minutes of fame? NO WAY! He has far surpassed that already. Kris will most likely do well also, but no where near the staying power of dazzling, powerful, authentic, awesome ADAM.

    VOTE FOR THE BEST = ADAM LAMBERT

  176. Of course he is a WORLD IDOL, his fame is international, ADAM belongs to the world, we all love him, VOTE, VOTE, VOTE, VOTE, VOTE, VOTE FOR ADAM LAMBERT.

  177. Sorry, I misquoted the figures – Adam Lambert’s site has 11,700 hits to 1,996 for Kris Allen. I said million when I meant thousand. Sorry for the mistake.

    VOTE FOR ADAM THE NEXT AMERICAN AND INTERNATIONAL IDOL

  178. Hi there Mary Anne – LOL Steve… the attacks moved on to Adam’s international fans… makes me wonder who’s left???

  179. They can attack Adam’s International funs as much as they like, it just shows a sign of fefeat because in their hearts they know that Adam is the AMERICAN AND WORLD IDOL, INTERNATIONAL FUNS VOTE, VOTE, VOTE, VOTE FOR ADAM.

  180. HI KATHLEEN AND MARY ANNE…..I’M WITH YOU…..THE KRIS FANS ARE RESTLESS AGAIN…..THEY REALLY NEED A REALTY CHECK IF THEY THINK THAT ADAM IS ONLY GETTING 15 MINUTES OF FAME!!!!!!! THEY OBVIOUSLY DON’T READ THE PAPERS OR WEBSITES…ADAM HAS ARRIVED……AND TONIGHT WE WILL VOTE LIKE CRAZY….A VOTE FOR ADAM IS A VOTE FOR THE NEXT AI!!!!!

  181. #217…I agree with your comment about Simon’s words to Adam. When Adam was first, Simon could not have made the other contestants feel very good about performing after Adam. Simon’s words insinuated that Danny and Kris did not have a chance to top Adam’s performance, HOW UNFAIR SIMON WAS!!! There are times Simon should keep his mouth shut. His comments about the performances are OK but he should never ASSUME the other contestants don’t stand a chance.

  182. Hi Phyllis, Donna, Mary Anne, Toni, Steve – and all ADAM FANS- just look at the votes on this website- Adam has twice the votes that Kris has….
    if this representative sample then it confirms what we have been saying all along – ADAM is the next AMERICAN IDOL.

    Kris’ fans are scared….. they know in their hearts that ADAM has generated a lot of support around the world and most importantly in the MUSIC business.

    VOTE VOTE VOTE FOR ADAM

  183. Sorry= typing quicker than reading – “if this is a representative sample” I meant to say. There are 1000 votes, 67% ADAM, 32% Kris

  184. TO ALL MY FELLOW ADAM FANS, GET READY, GET SET, VOTE,VOTE,VOTE.
    IF THE VOTING IS FOR FOUR HOURS VOTE FOR FOUR HOURS. WE CANNOT TAKE ANY CHANCES IN LETTING ADAM DOWN AND IT DOES HAPPEN, LOOK AT TAYOR HICKS, OR CHRIS DAUGHTRY… TAYLOR SHOULD HAVE BEEN ELIMINATED AND CHRIS DAUGHTRY SHOULD HAVE WON….THAT’S WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE TAKE ANYTHING FOR GRANTED. AGAIN, I WILL SAY, BOTH OF THESE YOUNG MEN DESERVE TO BE WHERE THEY ARE, I HAVE TREMENDOUS RESPECT FOR BOTH. I PERSONALLY BELIEVE ADAM IS FAR MORE TALENTED AND VERSATILE THAN KRIS, AND IN MY OPINION, THIS SHOULD BE A LANDSLIDE FOR ADAM. NEVER HAVE I SEEN ANYONE ON IDOL BEFORE THAT HAS GRABBED AMERICA FROM THE BEGINNING TO THE END, AS ADAM HAS.
    I ALSO FEEL ADAM HAS PAID HIS DUES, HE HAS STRUGGLED TO PERFECT HIS VOCALS OVER THE YEARS, ANYONE WHO THINKS THAT IS EASY, ESPECIALLY IN L.A. IS SADLY MISTAKEN, GOOD LUCK TO BOTH CONTESTANTS, ALL I ASK IS PLEASE VOTE FOR TALENT, NOT SEXUAL PREFERENCE, OR VENGEANCE, THAT IS NOT WHAT DANNY OR ALLISON WOULD WANT THEIR FANS TO DO, AND TO DO THAT WOULD CHEAPEN THEIR TALENTS. AND THEY ALL DESERVE MORE THAN THAT. EVEN DANNY, SAID IN AN INTERVIEW, HE HAD LEARNED A LOT FROM ADAM. IF HE CAN BE SO GRACIOUS, CAN’T WE?

  185. I just got around to reading the local morning paper, the Nashville Tennessean..It has an article in there about the American Idol Finale tonight and tomorrow night…It refers to ADAM as the HIGHLY FAVORED contestant of the two remaining…I LOVE IT!!!! GO ADAM – WORLD IDOL!!!

  186. AMEN JODI MUELLER. I love what you wrote – especially the part about being gracious.

    I WILL VOTE FOR THE WHOLE FOUR HOURS FOR ADAM LAMBERT

  187. Mary Anne – my local paper said the same thing yesterday – I live in Connecticut. YEAH FOR ADAM

  188. Right Jodi, we cannot take anything for granted because America Votes and this, when it all is said and done, is a voting contest, not a talent contest….GO ADAM!!!

  189. Well said Jodi, lets make this a celebration of talent, Adam has truly worked hard to achieve where is, deep down we all know that talent should be awarded, VOTE, VOTE, VOTE, VOTE, VOTE FOR ADAM LAMBERT. It has been a long time since someone with his talent has graced our television screens, WE WANT MORE.

  190. Hey, Kathleen and Phyllis, where is your “friend” that knows all?? I know you spent all afternoon trying to talk to her…No way to tell anybody like that anything…She already knows everything…She sure spent a lot of time trying to convince you all that Kris was the best singer…Strange!!! GO ADAM!!!

    GO ADAM!!!

  191. ODDS ON FAVORITE IN VEGAS IS ADAM ALSO……
    JODI M..I LOVED YOUR COMMENTS….WAY TO GO….KATHLEEN F…MARY ANNE, FRANK (TALLAHASSEE), DONNA, BABS, BUBBA AND ALL THE ADAM FANS OUT THERE…TONIGHT IS THE NIGHT FOR US TO SHINE…..SINCE I’M ON PACIFIC TIME I WON’T GET THE SHOW UNTIL THREE HOURS AFTER MOST OF YOU. I DON’T READ THE BLOGS UNTIL THE MORNING BECAUSE I WANT TO WATCH THE SHOW BUT I WILL BE VOTING WHILE YOU GUYS ARE SLEEPING…
    ADAM FANS UNITE AND VOTE FOR THE BEST TONIGHT…….I WILL TALK TO YOU ALL TOMORROW…IT REALLY HAS BEEN FUN!!!!!

  192. Hi Courtney MSG 211

    I truly believe that Adam might win, but I feel Kris is going to go much further. To be sure, I would rather see Kris win tomorrow night, because he is my favorite. Adam has a lot of little gremilins that he is dealing with and they will hold in back. Kris will go international without a doubt. Don’t get me wrong Adam is extemely talented that is vocally, but I see a lot of personal issues he is facing. I hope the best for them both, because they are extremely talented. If one is not ready for Fame it can quickly destroy.

  193. PHYLLIS – I too will be on the morning and once the show starts, I will only be VOTING for ADAM! so, I will not e reading either. It has been fun- and tomorrow will bear the fruit of our labors LOL……. the next American Idol – ADAM LAMBERT

  194. Kudos Jodi for your insightful post. I think Adam will be so proud of his fans if he gets to read any of this. We’ve risen above all the BS and have kept this discussion board as it was meant to be… voicing our opinions and preferences without being petty, childish and rude.

    I’ll miss you all when this is over…

    ADAM LAMBERT ROCKS!! VOTE FOR HIM THE FULL 4 HOURS. LET’S GIVE HIM THE TITLE HE’S EARNED AND SO WELL DESERVES!!

  195. KATHLEEN..FROM YOUR LIPS TO AMERICA’S EARS….ADAM ALL THE WAY….I’LL BE THINKING ABOUT YOU GUYS TONIGHT AS I’M VOTING MY FINGERS OFF…..

  196. #159 – Alfie (South Africa)…I love what he had to say..”This young wonder called Adam MUST win. The world hasn’t seen talent like this since Elvis!!”

    I love it and it is so very true…Yes Alfie, we will put in lots of votes for you tonight….
    VOTE ADAM – WORLD IDOL!!

  197. DONNA…MY SENTIMENTS EXACTLY……I DO BELIEVE ADAM FANS DO HAVE CLASS!!!!! WE JUST STICK TO THE FACTS AND NO BS!!!!!

  198. I read somewhere what the song selections would be tonight…3 songs each..
    1.Contestants Choice
    2.Judges Choice
    3.Producers Choice?? (Not sure of the last one)I’m one of the “mature” ADAM fans ,you know..GO ADAM!! VOTE, VOTE, VOTE FOR ADAM!!

  199. Mary Anne – we didn’t feed the negativity and it went away… works every time!! 🙂

  200. A LANDSLIDE VICTORY FOR MY IDOL ADAM LAMBERT…. JUST A WISH!

    BUT I REALLY PRAYED HARD TONIGHT THAT ADAM LAMBERT WILL PERFORM HIS GREATEST PERFORMANCE EVER AND TRANSLATE THEM TO MULTITUDES OF VOTES.

    ADAM LAMBERT IS THE GREATEST SINGER IN THIS COMPETITION, NO MORE ARGUMENTS CUZ I AM A 100% ADAM LAMBERT’S FAN AND I AM ENTITLED TO SAY WHATEVER I LIKE TO POST HERE WITHOUT BASHING KRIS ALLEN LIKE THE OTHERS WHO KEPT ON RUNNING REDUNDANT ISSUES LIKE SENILE OLD FAGGOTS.

    ADAM LAMBERT FROM ADAMLANDIA IS THE BEST IN THIS BUSINESS AND SIMON COWELL DID GAVE HIM A STANDING OVATION FOR HE IS ROCK GOD!

    ADAM LAMBERT FROM ADAMLANDIA IS THE AMERICAN IDOL THIS SEASON 8.

    GO GO GO MY IDOL…..

    PHYLLIS…YES I AM FROM BROOKLYN BRIDGE LIVING NEAR THE EDGE OF THE RIVER HEHEHEHEHE………..

  201. ADAM’S FANS ROCK – we have risen above the rest with style and class- and we have facts to back up our statements. We have enjoyed each other and ADAM and all the International fans – I do hope ADAM hears about our allegiance to him, but if not, it is all for a good cause – WE LOVE ADAM, WE LOVE HIS VOCALS – HE IS A STAR

    LOVE TO ALL THE ADAM FANS

    Kathleen F

  202. omg… just realized I didn’t get a thing done today – I’ve been glued to this discussion board ALL DAY!! LOL

    Less than 2 hours to go to see our star rise and shine!! YAY!! I can’t hardly sit still!!

  203. MARY ANNE…ITS NOT THE JUDGES CHOICE ITS THE WINNERS SONG THAT BOTH CONTESTANTS PERFORM TONIGHT AND THEN THATS THE SONG THAT BECOMES THE WINNER’S FIRST RECORDED SONG……

  204. Yep, if you can just ignore but it is so hard to do…I think sometimes that is what they want, an argument!! But we won’t give them one, will we??

  205. Oh yes, now I remember, they will both sing the same song….Well, we all know who will win that one!!!

  206. brooklyn….GOTCHA…..AS LONG AS YOUR AN ADAM’S FAN, IT REALLY DOESN;T MATTER WHERE YOU COME FROM……….VOTE FOR THE MAN….ADAM THAT IS!!!!!

    Thanks again to all of you ADAM Lovers…It has been great chatting with you all..All of you are excellent judges of talent!! Hopefully will catch you all again tomorrow..I know what we all will be doing tonight..Dialing our fingerprints off for ADAM!!!

  211. American Idol’s Official TV Station, WSVN, in South Florida just announced Adam’s fans out number Kris’ by 3 to 1

    ADAM’S FANS ROCK

  212. They will sing three songs.

    1. This will be one chosen by Simon Fuller who “owns” the show.
    2. This will be the contestants choice. Adam Lambert is favored to do “Mad World” again. Kris is favored to reprise “Ain’t No Sunshine”.
    3. This will be a song called “No Boundaries” which is written by Kara DioGuardi.

  213. That is the one I could not remember..the Coronation Song…That is the one they both sing…Thanks Bubba….Vote for ADAM!!

  214. I am excited that Adam and Kris are the two left standing in the 2009 finale. I love both of them. Although I wanted them both to be The Top Two, I think Adam should win. Good Luck Guys, thanks for the best finale yet!

  215. Both contestants have chosen the best song each performed during the knock-out stages.

    Hopefully Simon Fuller will choose better songs than the judges did for the Final 3 show.

    It will interesting to see how each interprets Kara’s song.

    Here’s to a great show and I hope that both contestants do themselves proud.

    Adam has the onstage musical performing experience but remember that Kris has appeared in clubs and worked with a band so he is no novice to performing on stage.

    BTW – both Adam and Kris are very civil to and supportive of each other so perhaps some of the people who contribute to this board can be equally graceful to their “opponents”.

  216. HERE IN SOUTHAMERICA WE LOVE ADAM TOO!! THE GREATEST!! PLIS VOTE FOR US!!!!

    …bless Kris too…

    ADAM ADAM!!

  217. Did Barbara Walters really say that she doesn’t think Adam has that good a voice. OMG get those batteries replaced in that hearing aid lady. His voice is incredible!!!!!!!!!!

  218. hotshot im in my 20s and i agree whith u kris is v v v v talented and i hope he wins 😀

  219. Barbara Walters was born in Boston in 1931 no doubt grew up with many different styles and generations of music.

    Her father was a nighclub owner and theatrical producer. Like everyone else, she is entitled to her opinion. I disagree with her but respect her opinion.

  220. I am signing off now – ADAM will be on in 28 minutes and I have to get ready…. this is a first for my husband and I to watch AI together – he is a musician and has never liked AI until this year when I wouldn’t stop talking about ADAM in the very beginning…. he listened and he is hooked! Tonight he has prepared a GLAMBERT party with cheese and crackers, pretzels and wine – never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would see this day….. so ADAM has had far reaching effects on many people. I can’t wait for the show to begin….

    LOVE TO ALL THE FANS, LOVE TO ADAM AND GOOD SINGING – VOTE UNTIL THE FINGERS ARE NUMB — SEE YA TOMORROW

  221. you know what at this point it does not even matter. both adam and kris are wonderful. both will make it big. i would buy any songs put out by either one of them. good luck to both of the contestants. god bless. g

  222. Considering Barbara Walter’s age, I would’ve been blown away if thought differently. Bubba’s right, she has her opinions and preferences like everyone else and is entitled to voice them publicly… this we live in the USA – remember?

    OMG!!! 16 minutes to go!! I can’t stand it!!

  223. gianna…Not to worry…I’ll put in some votes for ADAM for you tonight….

  224. “nightclub” that should be.

    Hey Ron, #271, if she hasn’t retired at almost 78, I doubt if she will. Once it is in their blood, they find it hard to let go.

    Tony Bennett is 83 in August, Engelbert has just turned 73 and Tom Jones is 69 next month. I think the average age of the 60 Minutes Crew is about 70 and that includes Anderson Cooper who is in his early 40’s. lol

  225. Good luck to both adam and kris tonite.I’ll be voting for adam but will be fine with either of the two winning.

  226. Enjoy the show EVERYONE and, irrespective of the result, they are both excellent artists and will both be winners.

    Until later ——–

  227. Hey Americans – as a christian base society – lets vote and make Kris your American Idol. Give your children the right education and culture.

    Vote Kris Vote Kris Vote Kris

  228. goodluck for the two tonight.i am rooting for adam lambert to win but kris allen was good as well.i can’t wait to buy danny gokey’s cd

  229. Are you kidding me about Adam. Although both are talented, Adam is better suited for the 80’s hairband music. That gets pretty tiresome. If he wins, he will be just a flash in the ole pan. Come on Kris fans and vote!

    ^^^^^^ ADAM LAMBERT^^^^^^^

  232. Hey guys…. please please please, cast a 100 votes in my behalf for my idol adam lambert.

    i am from manila, philippines and i cannot vote for him here.

    i will pray my rosary again today here and pray hard that adam lambert my idol will win this american idol contest.

    mary ann from nashville, thanks if you can include my votes in yours too. many hugs and kisses my sweet darling friend from 10t miles across the sea.

    i love you all adam lambert’s fans!!!!

  233. Idol doesn’t come on for a couple of hours for those of you who have seen it, I want to know what songs Adam sang!

  234. They are both excellent perfomers without a doubt- but Kris I think will have longevity. Adam, in my opinion will have a much shorter career.

    So I vote Kris.

  235. My vote goes to Adam Lambert, who has been, in my opinion, the most innovative, talented and exciting performer this season.

    PROMOTE THE VOTE for ADAM LAMBERT!!!
    2

  236. #283 – “Culture” has 164 definitions including the popular one that is: “an integrated pattern of human knowledge, belief, and behavior that depends upon the capacity for symbolic thought and social learning.”

    I don’t know if you have children but I do plus grandchildren. In their lifetime, they will go to school and work with a diverse population that will include people from many cultures and, I am cetain, gay people.

    The best life education I gave my children and can give my grandchildren is a tolerance and understanding and a realization that we are all different.

    For those of you who use Christianity as a reason not to vote for Adam Lambert you should study the bible and note that the Gospels are clear. Jesus refused to be bound by cultural prejudice. Repeatedly, he took up the cause of the oppressed and defended them against narrow-minded religious leaders.

    Read Matthew 8 in which a Roman soldier asked Jesus to heal his “pais” who was very sick. “Pais” is a term often used in ancient times to refer to a servant who was his master’s same-sex partner.

    Jesus was immediately compassionate and spoke no words of exclusion or condemnation. He simply said, “I will come and heal him.”

    Sorry but I am sick and tired of the fanatics on here who, frankly, are totally unchristian with their comments.

    Now I think it is time to start the DVR – I hate commercials so tape the show and skip through them.

    ENJOY

  237. Ron #292, Adam sang Mad World (my favorite) Change is Gonna Come and a song that Kara wrote called No Boundaries. It was one totally awesome show. He sure deserves to win this year.

  238. Thank you Liz that is the only one I missed, TIVO you know, I was hoping he would sing that one!

  239. I love Kris all u guys who like adam are crazy!!!!!! Kris is HOT and Adam is just a gay dude!!! i will admit that he is a good singer but he is toooooooooooooooo theaterish!!!

  240. I think the reason there is so much negativity about Adam is that people are tired of hearing “how wonderful” he is when he really isn’t. There is way too much hype about him.

  241. Let’s have real singer win and not someone who has a unique look. Vote for Kris, he is the real deal. Adam won’t last. Even you teeney boppers who support Adam.

  242. I hope everyone is voting now — Adam all the way! I watched the show and there is no doubt he is the winner. He has staying power and he will be the next super star. I agree with the rest of the world Adam is the best and I hope America gets it right. I wish I could vote, it’s so frustrating sitting here hoping you are voting for the right singer. Chris is great but Adam is amazing. VOTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  243. Please see beyond the black eyeliner and black nail polish and vote for KRIS who has real talent.

  244. Ron, if you are still on…ADAM was his usual fabulous self…He was head and shoulders above, as usual..All the judges gave Kris pretty good reviews on some of his songs but they gave ADAM rave reviews on all three..You will enjoy the show…ADAM was the mega star, as usual…

    I have 3 phones on automatic redial voting for ADAM, getting lots of busy signals but I’m getting through about every 3rd time on each phone….I know you will be voting for ADAM also….GO ADAM – WORLD IDOL..

  245. Pam, I just read your blog. I think Adam is the greatest and I am 57 years old – I was a teeny bopper a long time ago. He appeals to all ages and all sexes because his voice is unbelievable. I haven’t been interested in music for years but this year I have been glued to American Idol cause something special has been happening – ADAM LAMBERT has been discovered. ADAM IS THE GREAT!!!!!!!!!!

  246. Anybody here voting for Kris based on his VOICE? Didn’t think so…

    VOTE ADAM: THE MOST TALENTED SINGER!!

    VOTE VOTE VOTE!!!!!!!!

  247. ADAM is the greatest talent to his this planet since Elvis…I have been a forever Elvis fan..He was the greatest..ADAM is the only singer that has come down the road that has been as exciting to me as Elvis…He is the next great Artist…Just you wait and see…
    Go ADAM!!! I’m voting as fast as I can…

  248. Let’s where Adam is next year? Oh, looking for another label because the one he’ll get through AI will have dropped him. He will fade fast.

  249. Im 56 year old female,Adam should win because he is the whole package.kris vocals are not strong enough he is good,just not good enough.
    But it doesnt matter so much they will both go far in music industry….

  250. Hello ADAM fans- he was fantastic as always, the judges didn’t have anything good to say about Kris except his first song which was pretty good, but ADAM did Mad World and he was far superior. I think the judges gave a little credence to Kris on the first song just to make it interesting. It was crystal clear that ADAM did much better than Kris – as a matter of fact it was way to obvious – the judges gave Kris an out – saying the song was too high for him for his last song, and he tanked on Marvin Gaye’s song.

    I can’t get through on ADAM’s lines – maybe one vote per 20 minutes, and constant busy – very disappointing… the last time this happened, ADAM was in the bottom three – there had better not be any monkey business going on where ADAM’s lines are blocked. Is anyone else having this problem. We have 2 lines and both are the same – AT&T is our carrier and we live in Connecticut.

  251. I can’t believe anyone in their right mind thinks Kris will have a longer career than Adam.Adam was the only contestant that people will remember from season 8, the only reason people held their breath all week waiting to see what he would do. You should have to be 18 to vote. It is quite clear the votes for Kris are becaues he’s “cute, or they are voting against Adam..NO ONE in their right mind could possibly think he is the better singer, entertainer.This is a singing contest,not the dating game.Clearly all of the judges know who is the next mega-star. VOTE ADAM

  252. I sure hope the constant busy on all 3 of ADAM’s lines means that everyone in America is voting for him…………..

  253. rachel: shut up bitch. dont bash adam lambert here. if you like kris, just say so and dont keep on repeating that redundant issue against adam lambert saying he is gay.

    Maybe you are so old and senile woman. F*ck off stupid comments always.

  254. kris allen- product of too much media hype

    adam lambert- a real genius and an excellent singer and brilliant performer

    america please keep on voting for adam lambert….

    he has to be the next american idol!

  255. Only AT&T phones can TEXT – besides I have AT&T phone service and I can’t vote- always busy

  256. media hype about adam? my ass, maybe its the other way around hahahaha…

    look closely at the performances and judge for yourself if who is the better singer between adam and kris.

    but for tone deaf and old fags, they wont ever appreciate adam lambert.

    anyway, we dont insist upon you to switch votes.

    for adam lambert’s fans and supporters, just keep on voting.

    this technical glitch in the voting lines maybe is again a handiwork of spammers and hackers who are rooting for kris allen.

    but in the end, good will triumph and karma will befall upon their bets.

    go adam lambert. you are our american idol!~

  257. Don’t feel bad I have a land line and don’t get through that often.Guess adam is getting a lot of votes and that’t a good thing.

  258. Kris already ha been offered to make a recod w/Jamie Fox…..havn’t heard if Adam has any offers

  259. Dial Idol has Kris Allen marginally ahead so the Kris fans are out dialing the Adam ones right now.

  260. What Perforance r ya’ll refering to? Adam doesn’t perform….he stands in one spot on stage and blabs….Kris moves around and HE PLAYS instruments…….

  261. #328 Desi

    Song #1 Kris sat at a piano
    Song #2 Kris sat playing a guitar
    Song #3 Kris stood at a microphone

    Which show were you watching?

  262. Round 1 Judges comments!
    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” by Bill Withers

    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 performanc

  263. Round 2- Judges comments
    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” by 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!

  264. Round 3- Judges Comments
    Adam Lambert- No Boundaries

    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 – “No Boundaries”

    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

    Paula said Adam Lambert is Iconic and i agree 100% lol…..

  265. kathleen: i am a 100% adam lambert fan and i am sharing the positive comments given him tonight.

    just keep on voting for adam lambert.

  266. i got this comments from another site and i am just sharing here the opinions of the four judges.

    so far, adam lambert has an edge over kris allen.

    if he stands in one spot while singing, that’s his style. i cant understand people here. adam was singing mellow rock and you expect him to head bang and jump all over the stage? this really becoming ridiculous. what is important, adam will cut his record and maybe simon cowell can make him an internationa idol like what he did with Westlife group.

    just wait guys, he is an iconic guy as Paula had described him. what more???? he is destined to be an american idol!!!

    Good luck adam lambert from adamlandia!

  267. Thanks Storm- I too LOVE ADAM, but I can’t get in many votes – I am disappointed , but I am going to keep trying

  268. Kris is good, or he wouldent have made it this far but in my opinnion I see adam as stronger. And Adam is more consistant Kris lucks up i believe when he has his good weeks, and Adams bad weeks are just at good as krises good weeks. AND YES ADAM IS VERSITILE, even the judges say he can sing any song and make it simply ADAM<3 He is a unique individual trying to stand up for the diffrent people in our world and I support him for that. Most people say hes gay? but if hes a good singer and it is last i heard a singing competetion why does his sexual prefrence matter in this sitution? Exactly it DOSENT!. ADAM WILL GO FAR<3 VOTE FOR ADAM THE PERFECT EXAMPLE OF AN AMERICAN IDOL SHOULD BE<3

  269. Wendy, sorry to say you too must have watching a different show – Kris Allen did not rock anything

  270. Now I am getting some calls through, if anyone else stopped voting for ADAM, please don’t – keep up the good work

  271. VOTE VOTE VOTE! Lets have A TRUE AMERICAN IDOL THIS YEAR! ADAM LAMBERT. DONT STOP VOTING!

  272. ESTEBAN you said adam is gay, how sure are you? NO evidence! Maybe you said that because you ARE GAY! and you love adam and other boys but you are not yet out of the closet so you dont want to tell! I hope your sons and grandsons in the future will all become GAY! accept gay people, they are okay!

    I dont think Adam is gay, he is just artistically brave! But even if he is, WHO CARES? HE has SUPERNOVA TALENT! vote for adam! allison and danny and matt fans!

  273. POST # 349 – you should be ashamed of yourself – talk about intolerance and gay bashing – how do you live with yourself?

  274. Hi Ron(Santa Barbara) – it is all up to the middle of the country and the West Coast now. I can no longer vote and I did not get many votes in until the last 45 minutes – before that it was busy all night. I read on another site that someone was able to vote continuously for Kris – I really don’t understand this voting.. my daughter could not get through, my husband could not get through and both my sisters and their husbands,,, no cell phone calls either. We were using our landlines with AT&T carrier…. it is disappointing.

    PLEASE WEST COAST – ALL VOTE FOR THE BEST ADAM

  275. I agree with the first comment, I am a huge fan of Adam, but I thin Kris a cool guy, and good looking, I just like Adam’s singing voice better :)!

  276. I was able to get 912 votes in for Adam by texting from 9pm to 1am WSVN TV is AI’s Official TV station in Miami Dade & Broward counties in South Florida and they are predicting that Adam will come out the winner.

  277. WSVN is clearly biased- they cannot know as voting is still ongoing.

    Kris is doing really well.

  278. They are taking polls of their own and interviewing music celebrities like Casey Sunshine. The key word here is “PREDICTING”..
    I have to wonder if Wendy would still say WSVN is “clearly biased” if their prediction went for Kris…

  279. The poll taken on this site shows that out of 1,729 votes, Kris’ votes are at 35% and Adam’s votes are at 64%… Is this site biased as well?

  280. This year has been tough we have had a lot of talent. in the begining I thought it would be Alexis, Danny, and adam. Then Adam began to drive me crazy with the screaming, then there was mad world that was good, then Alexis was gone then I thought Danny vs. Adam although Adam was repeating the same thing over and over again, changing everything into some big rock song with that crazy screaming, while Kris changes week after week and he has more skills than rock. He plays piano and guitar and sings. Adam just screams and sings and is pretty. go Kris you really snuck up on me.

  281. Honestly…Kris won the first round..Adam won the second round..and the 3rd round was a tie…that song didn’t fit quite right for either one of them, but it sounded a little better with Kris singing it. I voted for 4 hours straight…hands hurt, fingers hurt..so don’t worry if this website seems to have Adam in the lead…it’s misleading considering all the Kris fans just got done voting and could care less to a meaningless poll…I hope I have done enough to make Kris the next American Idol..if not…Kris is still my American Idol..what a season!!

  282. FOX News has just predicted Adam Lambert the winner and is waiting for Kris Allan’s concession speech.

  283. AmbernOK, you a Kris fan…lol, no wonder you thought Kris won the 3rd round…my god you must be totally in love with Kris.

    Nobody and I mean nobody but you, his wife and the most radical deaf fan thought he sung that song worth a dam.

  284. I voted by text for Adam the whole 4 hours the polls were open on the east coast. I was able to get 912 texts sent. I’m tired and going to bed now… omg we have to wait until tonight to see who won. Hope we didn’t let Adam down. He so deserves the title.
    AWESOME + AMAZING = ADAM = AMERICAN IDOL

  285. I think Kris will win. He has great vocals, he is great on the eyes, he can play the piano and guitar and his voice is amazing. I would definately buy all his CD’s. Adam on the other hand cannot play an instrument and his shouting gives me a headache. He definately belongs in the theatre. I’m sure he is a nice guy but I would never buy any of his music. In my opinion, he is totally over rated. That is just my opinion though. Love the show.

  286. Australia must have some great singers, don’t you have a talent show on TV?

  287. Yes we do have Australian Idol but it just isn’t as exciting as The American Idol. I’m not sure why. Perhaps it’s the lack of Simon and the lovely Ryan Seacrest.

  288. Kris will sound good over the Radio and CD player …. Adam will look and sound great on stage.

    I will vote for Kris!!

  289. …. continues

    I want a good CD, Adam’s high nodes will hurt my ears.

    I vote for Kris..

  290. Go Kris ….!!! Go Kris ….!!! Go Kris ….!!! Go Kris ….!!! Go Kris ….!!! Go Kris ….!!!

  291. its a bout singging contest and the idol not about religion so chose the right one… adam is very good singer but kris is very hunble and could be an idol also… all the best

  292. Hi all Adam fans, how was the show last night – I am very curious to know because we will only see it in a week? From what I can read among the posts,some people had difficulty in voting – was this a problem?

  293. adam is clearly the better of the two. kris when he sings his mouth goes sideways. his voice makes me want to throw my tv out of the window. when he got threw past allsion and danny i was so mad. he does not deserve to win american idol yet alone be a finalist. adam sings unbelievably and simon likes him more than kris. if adam goes home tonite then america will have it wrong.. once again.

  294. Alfie, (South Africa)..the show was absolutely wonderful..ADAM had them all eating out of his hands as usual..the judges were all in favor of ADAM all the way…there is no reason he should not win..However, as you know, it is a voting contest rather than a talent contest,so the best does not always win..We know ADAM will be the WORLD IDOL regardless…

  295. I had 3 lines, all AT&T going the entire voting period..The first hour, all 3 lines got lots of busy signals..I got through about every 3rd time on all 3 lines..However, as the night went on, I was able to get through and cast my votes more often…Not sure of the numberts..I lost count..I would say 600-700..All for ADAM!!!!W

  296. Watched the semi final this evening which confirmed my thoughts on Kris. I believe he will be the next American Idol!!! He was fantastic!!! I hope he gets all the congratulations he deserves. He really does have it all. Adam is a sweet guy but really is too theatrical and needs to stop the screaming or at least tone it down a little. He looks like he is in severe pain when he sings. I wish both Kris and Adam good luck. It’s great to see that even though they are in competition together and are complete opposites, they seem to have remained friends. I’m sure whoever wins, the other will be happy for them. I WISH WE WERE ALLOWED TO VOTE FROM AUSTRALIA!! VOTE KRIS!!!!

  297. Good Morning ADAM fans,

    It was crystal clear that ADAM is the superior singer last night, but the group who counts busy signals on the lines to give a prediction has Kris slightly ahead of ADAM. The numbers are so close that they are unable to give a prediction as to the winner.

    I am disappointed because I was unable to get many calls in – it was constantly busy – sometimes I got in one vote over a half hour period and that is with 2 phones, AT&T and constant redial. I switched the final two numbers many times to see if one line was better, but without success. During the last hour, I got through many more times, but still lots of busy signals.

    It will be interesting tonight.

    Mary Anne – did you reread your post #379? you wrote”Not sure of the numberts” was numberts on purpose? very cute – that is a number for ADAM LAMBERT….

  298. I’m a big Danny fan. I’m sure Adam will win because he’s just a great live performer. However, I wouldn’t buy any of his recordings. I get tired of hearing him scream all the time, but I guess his fans love it. I would buy a recording of Kris and of course Danny (who in my opinion should have been in the final two).

  299. Morning Kathleen..Actually I was all excited and that Numbert was a typo..However, since you pointed it out to me, it is kinda’ cute..Guess I had Lambert on my mind, as usual…Sure hoping and praying he will win but, look at the year Taylor Hicks won…Sometimes it is a big mistake and I am prepared…However, the voting system is so flawed, I have made up my mind, If ADAM does not win, I will never vote for another contestant because it is just too disappointing when we all know who the winner should be and it does not work..

  300. To the people that spent hours trying to vote for Adam –THANKYOU! I am shocked this competition is so close. Adam should be winning hands down as there has been no one like him for years (including the other contestants.) Special thank you to Mary Anne from Nashville #309 for putting some Adam votes in for me (I live in Canada). For Dee #369 from Australia the reason Australian Idol isn’t as exciting and instead you watch American Idol is because ADAM isn’t on Australian Idol – he is what makes this year AMAZING and extremely exciting. That’s why you are watching not because or Simon or Ryan.

  301. I absolutely agree Mary Anne, and I too, will never get pulled in the way I did this year, if ADAM doesn’t win. The voting system is a joke – and it does not determine the best singer of the two, nor who America wants – only who is able to get in the most votes.

    The other point that came out of this competition is how extremely narrow minded so many people are – look at posts # 349, 358, 360.
    I really believe that ADAM LAMBERT will go a long way towards helping people become more tolerant of differences, but our country still has a long way to go.

    Also, the fans who thought Kris actually sang his last two songs well have cotton in their ears or something…. the finale was more clear in the division of talent than any of the recent shows – ADAM has it all, and Kris really tanked. To be fair, he did a good job on his first song, but still no comparison to ADAM. And the judges made excuses for Kris – if the last song was too high for him, during rehearsal, why didn’t he (or someone) change the key for him- knowing what you can sing is all a part of the person’s talent. The reason they both do the same song on finale night is to see who can do it best. Kris can cover songs that he knows really well… I doubt he will make any impact in the music industry if he can’t sing an original song.

    There are many people out there who are saying that ADAM should hope to come in second, because he will have more freedom to do what he wants. The first recording will be of Kara’s song for the winner to do… imagine If it is Kris? That song won’t go anywhere. or they will have to do a lot of work getting it presentable. It should be interesting this evening… let’s hope they announce ADAM as the winner. He is the WORLD IDOL anyway.

  302. Thanks storm for posting those judges comments for the three songs….

    Judging the performances myself, i’ll give credit to Kris Allen for Round 1.

    But Round 2 and 3 goes to Adam Lambert. He was simply breath taking and spectacular. i was crying myself while watching his faultless performances.

    I just wish and pray to God Almighty that Adam will win as the american idol.

    Big Hugs to all adam lambert’s fans all over the world.

    Muchos Besos y te amare….:)

  303. What about that song that Kara co-wrote? I thought is stunk! It was defintely written for Adam’s voice which isn’t fair, and yes Kris should have sang that song in a key or two lower. I really didn’t like the song with either of them singing it.

  304. They are both great, however the sound system for Adam had the advantage, Adam is good but my opinion everything he does is almost always the same. I feel Kris is the more talented one as he can play so many instruments.

  305. DialIdol has Kris winning. Not sure how much of an impact text votes will make on that. So, Congratulations Kris!!! You are the next American Idol and you deserve it!

  306. Kathy F… I saw those posts last night but refused to give credence to them by acknowledging them. The same with someone who was calling for a Christian boycott… I’m a Christian and those posts disgusted me. That is NOT what Jesus would do.

    If we ignore the negativity and nasty criticism those people will get bored and go away. Trust me – it works… 🙂

  307. I do not understand how they couldn’t transpose the song down for Kris. The band is phenomenal; how hard whould that have been? Adam gets the frilly sets and dry ice; they can at least give Kris the transposition.
    Another example of how the producers are helping Adam…

    But it doesn’t matter – Kris is winning!

  308. And now where are all of the Glamberts? lol I guess that they are fair-weather fans… Adam’s countdown to the end of his 15 minutes of fame begin NOW.

    Tick, tock, tick, tock….

  309. GOOD MORNING TO ALL MY ADAM FANS…….AS YOU ALL KNOW I AM ON THE WEST COAST TIME AND I VOTED TILL 1:00AM..I STARTED AT 10:30 AND I GOT THRU EVERY TIME ON MY LANDLINE……EVERYONE I KNOW HAD A HARD TIME GETTING THRU ON THEIR CELL PHONES…WHATS UP WITH THAT.
    KATHLEEN F, MARY ANNE (NASHVILLE), FRANK (TALLAHASSEE), RON & LISA (SANTA BARBARA), DONNA (FT. LAUDERDALE), brooklyn AND TO ALL MY OTHER ADAM FANS I JUST WANTED TO SAY THAT IT HAS BEEN FUN…ADAM SHOULD WIN. WE ALL DID WHAT WE COULD….HE IS DEFINITELY OUR IDOL AND ANYONE OUT THERE THAT SAW THE SHOW LAST NIGHT AND THINKS THAT KRIS WAS THE BETTER OF THE TWO I THINK REALLY NEEDS TO GET THEIR HEARING CHECKED OUT…ADAM WON THAT COMPETITION LAST NIGHT.. HE WAS UNBELIEVABLE (AS USUAL) AND KRIS AS MUCH AS HE WAS MY 1ST FAVORITE IN THE BEGINNING COULDN’T HOLD A CANDLE TO ADAM….IF KRIS SHOULD WIN (AND ALL YOU KRIS FANS REMEMBER THIS) HE WILL DISAPPEAR JUST AS TAYLOR HICKS AND THE MAJORITY OF THE OTHER WINNERS DID (EXCEPT FOR CARRIE UNDERWOOD)…..

  310. I would not be excited if you could get through constantly last night – that means that the lines weren’t getting enough calls to fill them up. Kris did a fantastic job last night. He clearly sung his butt off. I was shocked that the producers didn’t bother to transpose the last song down for him. But they had the time to provide special effects for Adam. Go figure. And according to DialIdol Kris has received more phone votes. So, if text voting mirrors phone voting, which is logical, then Kris has won. Kris deserves to win. He won the battle last night, clearly. Adam just sounded wrong, especially in the Sam Cook song. He was like a fish out of water. Kris was better suited for the last song too. I am so happy for him! That single is going to sell like hotcakes!

    Congratulations to Kris Allen, our 2009 American Idol!

  311. Good Morning Phyllis G.. I text voted for the full 4 hrs and got confirmation that my 912 votes for Adam were received. He rocked my world last night as usual. He’s the epitome of an American Idol… the whole package.

    Although I joined in on this message board late I had fun with all my fellow Adam Fans… Adam would be proud of us since we rose above the negativity and mean spiritedness childishness.

    Win or lose I’m sure that Adam will go a long way… ie: Daughtry didn’t win the title but his songs are being played all over the airwaves down here.

    We will all learn the outcome in less than 8 hrs. I’ll miss this message board. It’s been fun, Kathleen F., Mary Anne (Nashville), Frank (Tallahassee), Ron & Lisa (Santa Barbara), Brooklyn, the International Adam fans and all the others who voted for Adam. I’m going to have AI withdrawals…

  312. I am sure that Kris will be the winner. We had massive texting going on for Kris. He will have a fabulous career and Adam will fade away into the shadows…

    KRIS ALLEN IS THE AMERICAN IDOL!!!!

  313. DONNA….I DEFINITELY KNOW HOW YOU FEEL…..I’M GOING TO MISS ALL MY INFORMATION ABOUT ADAM FROM HIS FANS…..ALL THE COMMENTS..ITS REALLY BEEN FUN…..I GUESS NOW I’LL HAVE TO REALLY WORK AT WORK….LOL….I THINK I SPENT MORE TIME ON THIS BLOG THEN WORKING IN THE LAST 10 WEEKS OR SO….GOING BACK TO THE AUDITIONS….
    I TRULY HOPE THAT WE HAVE ONE MORE REALLY GOOD DAY TOMORROW TO CELEBRATE……

  314. Not in a million years Wendy, Adam will take the crown or I will eat my laptop – with power support and all!!

  315. Well, prepare yourself for the meal because Kris is winning this competition. DialIdol has him ahead.

  316. Adam Lambert is the best of the best and a legend in the making. He will be the next king in the music and entertainment world. His career are not limited in only music but also the big screen. He will be the STAR of STAR in the Dawn of 21st Century. The name ADAM LAMBERT will be in the HALL OF FAME among Elvis Presley & Michael Jackson

  317. Ronnie – I think that you are jumping the gun a little bit. Adam is not even winning this competition. How could you possibly expect him to do anything else? COme back to the real world.

  318. WENDY….IF THE BEST MAN WINS AND AMERICA GETS ITS RIGHT….THEN ADAM WILL WIN!!!!!!!! SORRY WENDY BUT IF KRIS WINS THEN WE CAN TALK ABOUT 15 MINUTES OF FAME!!!!! KRIS’ 15 MINUTES…..HE WILL NEVER BE MORE THAN AN OPENING ACT…JUST ASK JORDIN SPARKS!!!!!!!

  319. Wendy,
    Glad you know everything.The great dialidol has been wrong almost all season but if you look up and read what they had to say you may stop jumping the gun yourself,even the people at dialidol say it’s to close to call.I don’t think they can track all the text messages but I am not sure, then again,unlike you I don’t know everything.

    Good luck to both of them.

  320. Phyllis – That is your opinion and so be it. I think that Kris is the best performer of the two and will win the title. Adam is just a tabloid story at best. Just wait and see….

  321. Wendy, for your information, the sets,and etc, and the transposition of songs belongs to the contestant who asks for it – the producers didn’t try to sabotage Kris – he did a magnificent job of that on his own, he can’t hold a candle to ADAM. He should have asked them to lower the key for him, but he wanted to sing it the way he did and it wasn’t good. So don’t use the excuse that the producers didn’t work with him. He didn’t work with him. I know you have your opinion, but everyone, everywhere is saying that ADAM should win because Kris proved that he does not have the voice and the talent, he did a poor job on the last two songs. And just so you know, I have always said (in the past) that he has talent, just not the “IT” or the “WOW” factor which equals = boredom. He has had a rocky on again off again throughout the whole competition, last night was the proof.

    Adam does not NEED to win this competition to be a star – in fact it is said, he may be better if he does not win, but Kris on the other hand has miles to go before he could become a star.

  322. Chris W – odds are high that the text voting will either mirror the phone voting or that Kris will receive more texts than Adam. Think about who texts the most… And if you really did read the DialIdol message, they pointed out the Kris was leading in the measurements during the final hour and for most of the voting and that shows that the estimation could be more accurate than we think.

    Sorry to have to break it to you BUT YOU ARE WRONG!!!!

  323. Wendy,
    Sorry I make you angry with that statement but even a child will know a good voice when the hear it. With his voice and look even the blind can see. I still say Adam lambert is the best of the best and a legend in the making. He will be the next king in the music and entertainment world. His career are not limited in only music but also the big screen. He will be the STAR of STAR in the Dawn of 21st Century. The name ADAM LAMBERT will be in the HALL OF FAME among Elvis Presley & Michael Jackson.
    And it did not matter what your personal opinion is I am voting ADAM.

  324. Kathleen – Were you there when Kris got the song? How could you possibly know whether or not he wanted that key? And if you listen back to the reactions to the performances, Kris did exceptionally well last night. Adam was too theatrical.

  325. WENDY….WELL LETS JUST WAIT AND SEE!!!!!
    AMERICA DID GET IT RIGHT ONCE!!!!!!!THEY COULD AGAIN…….ADAM IS AN AMERICAN IDOL!!!!!!

  326. but even a child will know a good voice when the hear it.

    LMAO!!!!

    With his voice and look even the blind can see.

    Oh, thats GOOD. You should join the cult too!

    I still say Adam lambert is the best of the best and a legend in the making. He will be the next king in the music and entertainment world. His career are not limited in only music but also the big screen. He will be the STAR of STAR in the Dawn of 21st Century. The name ADAM LAMBERT will be in the HALL OF FAME among Elvis Presley & Michael Jackson.
    And it did not matter what your personal opinion is I am voting ADAM.

    Hun, the polls closed at 1 last night. You are hilarious.

  327. dialidol stated that they can’t count texts only busy signal which they translate into votes. This is not, according to them an exact method, so when the votes are close, they cannot make any predictions. It is only when they are very far apart that they can be more predictive.

    No matter, we will find out tonight…. the fact that Kris got that many votes is unnerving at best. America got it wrong again… even if the final tally is for ADAM, the fact that there are that many Americans who voted for the wrong guy means there are a lot of people who cannot “hear” music. I think that is sad. Coupled with the people who voted for all the wrong reasons and they think a person sings better because he strums a guitar – well, enough said on that subject.

  328. Maybe I am wrong but you have to understand that I really don’t care who wins.To me this is just another reality show and by the end of the week I’ll forget all about it.I only watched this year cuz of adam and allison.I don’t take as serious as most people.

    BTW, I had the hardest time last night voting for adam, a ton of busy signals so it was not as easy as you think and probably didn’t get much more than 575-600 votes in.

  329. WENDY…….NO ONE IS SAYING THAT KRIS CAN’T SING….ALL WE ARE SAYING IS THAT ADAM IS THE MORE TALENTED SINGER……KRIS WILL RECORD HIS CD AND SO WILL ADAM…..AND IF I WERE A BETTING PERSON….!!!! ODDS ARE ON ADAM TO OUT SELL KRIS…….NO MATTER WHO WINS AI……AND PAYING TO SEE A CONCERT….THERE IS NO COMPARISON…..ADAM IS A SHOWMAN ALL THE WAY WHETHER YOU LIKE HIM OR NOT!!!!!

  330. One more thing wendy,

    You might break away from dialidol with kris leading by a whole 1.1% for a sec and check out vote#1 or zabasearch.

  331. Kathleen – you are obviously not a musician or a vocalist as you have no clue what you are talking about.

    Ronnie – If you check the voting, you will see that you are wrong.

    And Phyllis – Adam’s talent lies in his theatricality, but his voice is one hot mess. Kris is the more talented vocalist.

    Guys, just get over yourselves, and see that America definitely got it right. Adam is a joke. Kris is the true star.

  332. Wendy, Have you not listened at all to the comments – reread them as storm put them here for us. And the contestants are always judged on how they changed the song to make it their own. If you have ever listened to the interviews, they talk about the arrangements that they work on with the band – starting on the first day and then it is rehearsed over and over until the CONTESTANT has it where they wanted it. And ADAM has thanked the people who helped him with the arrangements. When Simon picked “One” for ADAM, Simon helped him with the arrangement and Simon criticized the other judges for not doing the same for their choices. They all have the same opportunities.

    Remember when Kris did the Beatle song? He stated that he originally picked a different song and changed his mind – the other song just didn’t work out for him. So they have everything to say about how it is done – and work on it until they get it the way THEY want.

    So, let’s see if I understand you properly, the last song was too high for Kris, the producers didn’t help him – blah, blah sour grapes – he didn’t do a good job, end of story.

  333. I think DialIdol is pretty good, considering it has been 97% accurate in the past. It is most well known indicator for this compatition as well. You are just scared that your boy is losing.

  334. And there you have it, Kathleen just backed my point. Simon helped Adam but no one helped Kris. You are obviously clueless when it comes to music, but Kris is intelligent. I think that if Kris had had the ability to make the song lower he would have done it. It is clear that Kris got shafted in so many ways but he will still prevail.

    Look guys, I understand that it is hard to let go. I sympathize and know that you will be just fine when Kris wins the title. You will get though it, promise.

  335. WENDY …WIN OR LOSE TONIGHT….YOU NEED TO CHECK YOUR HEARING…..
    I AM NOW OFFICIALLY DONE WITH YOU!!!!!! AND YOUR ATTITUDE…YOU DO NOT HAVE AN OPINION YOU HAVE AN ATTITUDE….
    AND JUST FOR THE RECORD….THEATRICS IS WHAT MAKES A GOOD CONCERT…I GUESS YOU’VE NEVER SEEN A ROLLING STONE CONCERT, MADONNA, CHER ETC. THEATRICS!!!!!!

  336. I am a producer on music and film for 23 years and I can see a star quality better then you Wendy. I vote Adam Lambert not because I am a fan but because he deserve to win. because he is the kind of quality talent that dont come often, only onces in a 100 years.

  337. Wendy, I am also done with you – whiney….. No one helped Kris – that was last week and it was to make a point… iut doesn’t have anything to do with the songs this week. You are being argumentative and defensive – and not making much sense.

    If the only less than positive comment about ADAM was that he a too theatrical, that is a far cry better than being told “you are too light for this point in the competition, song was too high for you, so I won’t comment (Means it wasn’t good)and the best: 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.

    That is the end of my response to you, and your ATTITUDE as Phyllis G, stated.

  338. Wendy,
    I will let the rest argue with you.I think you just come here to stir up trouble and drag adam through the mud.I am not scared that adam will not win btw.Good for kris if does win but you won’t see me put him down one way or the other.

    Kathleen F ,
    #410 was a good post and made perfect sence to me but I think your wasting your time trying to explain things to wendy.

  339. WENDY …WIN OR LOSE TONIGHT….YOU NEED TO CHECK YOUR HEARING…..

    uh, what? lol

    I AM NOW OFFICIALLY DONE WITH YOU!!!!!! AND YOUR ATTITUDE…YOU DO NOT HAVE AN OPINION YOU HAVE AN ATTITUDE….

    My opinion conflicts with yours, plain and simple, and you can’t take it.

    AND JUST FOR THE RECORD….THEATRICS IS WHAT MAKES A GOOD CONCERT…

    Oh thats funny. So lets go to a concert with no band, no vocals, just strobe lights, dry ices, and freaky costumes! Wow, that is MUSIC!! lmao.

    I GUESS YOU’VE NEVER SEEN A ROLLING STONE CONCERT, MADONNA, CHER ETC. THEATRICS!!!!!!

    Rolling Stones, Madonna, Cher — all CAN SING!!!! Duh!!! Although Madonna has her weird moemnts, but Mick Jagger and Cher are phenomenal vocalists.

    Theatrics only work when you have a good musical product to begin with. Adam screeches at best and his interpretation of EVERY song he does is the same. You call Kris boring. ha!

    Get all upset, blow off some steam, go for it!

  340. I am 12 and I LOVE Adam Lambert I think he is going to win!!! Kris is really good to but if you have watched American Idol a lot you would know that its not really a singing competition its more of a personality contest…Both *Adam* and Kris are awesome singers but i REALLY hope Adam wins well i think they both have a good chance at winning well i can’t wait to hear the results!!!!!

  341. Thank you ronnie chan – very well spoken – another nice ADAM fan.

    By the way, I have been out on medical leave for the past two weeks – I have spent so much time with the great ADAM fans, I too, am going through withdrawal. I have to get back to work soon and that life will be dull without chatting with my friends here -MARY ANNE (NASHVILLE), FRANK (TALLAHASSEE), RON & LISA (SANTA BARBARA), DONNA (FT. LAUDERDALE), BROOKLYN, BUBBA, STORM and all the other great, sweet, tolerant (non insulting)fans of ADAM LAMBERT

  342. Both Adam and Kris are amazing. Equally so in their own rights. Adam appeals to one group- Kris to another. People saying Kris cannot sing or is not talented are just being defensive and insecure in their choice and the same applies to those critiquing Adam. Both boys have serious talent! It has boiled down to taste in music so I do not understand why people are saying if so and so doesn’t win there is no justice or they won’t watch Idol ever again or people are narrow minded. Either way, both boys are promised a great future. Neither one needs to win Idol now to succeed so who ever wins really doesn’t matter. I voted Kris. I prefer his softer style. My 15 year old voted Adam. May the most popular choice win!

  343. Chris W. agreed…. explaining to her leads to more insults… I don’t plan to continue to respond to her.

  344. Adam Lambert is the best of the best and a legend in the making. He will be the next king in the music and entertainment world. His career are not limited in only music but also the big screen. He will be the STAR of STAR in the Dawn of 21st Century. The name ADAM LAMBERT will be in the HALL OF FAME among Elvis Presley & Michael Jackson. Adam rock!!!
    and a Change is gonna come tonight to the American Idol.

  345. Hi Kaitlyn,

    You sound sweet.. and smart. I hope *Adam* wins too. Let’s keep our fingers crossed, but remember – it isn’t about the winning- “it is how you played the game.” ADAm did a great job entertaining us didn’t he? I am sure he will continue to do so for a long time to come…… I am going to buy every CD, album, etc. that I can get. How about you? Do you get an allowance to buy anything musical?

  346. The only reason why I might not have seen every second of the competition this year is because I was in rehearsals for my performances, but I have seen every show and have seen the seasons prior. I am very comfortable with my choice of American Idol, and it is clear that I am not alone as there are MILLIONS who feel the way that I do.

  347. I am 10 years old and I voted for KRIS!!!! :^)

    I am buying every album that he puts out! TONS OF EM!!!!

    He is a rock god and will bring hope and change to the music industry.

  348. Hey Phyliss G(Las Vegas), Ronnie Chan, Chris w., and Kathleen F. and all the other Adam fans who’ve posted here today – for the most part this discussion board has been fun with everyone voicing their preferences and the reasons to back up their preferences without putting the other contestant down in a mean spirited manner.

    I’m a total Adam fan and have been since the first show. Kris and Adam have befriended each other even though they are in competition with each other. If they ever took a peek at these messages in the last couple of days I’m sure they have had a few chuckles. I’m also sure that Adam is proud of the way his fans have conducted themselves here. I have to wonder, though, what Kris would think of a FEW (I’m sure they know who they are) of his fan’s childish, mean spirited attitudes. He is such a sweet and humble guy I’m sure he would be both embarrassed and appalled by their rude behavior and mean spirited attitudes towards his opponent and his fans.

    At this point of the competition the two contestant’s talent have been thrown to the wayside and it’s become a popularity contest. How sad after all their hard work.

    Perhaps AI can come up with a better system of choosing the contestant who displays the total package requirement for the American Idol of 2010.

  349. Sounds like a concession speech. Why do Adam fans think that Kris fans are mean, simply because we have our own opinions. Have you noticed how the second Adam isn’t praised as a GOD, the Glamberts are so quick to put us down. Wow. That is all I can say. Wow.

    Sounds like insecurity to me.

  350. And the minute that Kris is praised, the Adam fans assume it is because he is popular. How funny. Well he is popular because he can SING.

  351. Kellie I wasn’t referring to you, Sweetie… If you read through yesterday’s and today’s messages you will know who I’m referring to. You show some maturity for your age. Stay sweet.

  352. Donna – When Kris is crowned tonight, you will finally realize that we were not being mean. We were telling the truth.

  353. Does Kellie’s post #440 sound like a 10 year old, or is it just a different Kellie than #438?

  354. ANNA…..IT SEEMS THAT THE KRIS FANS ARE THE ONES THAT STOOP TO NAME CALLING…..IF YOU READ THE COMMENTS….ADAM FANS MAY BRAG ABOUT ADAM BUT WE DO NOT STOOP TO NAME CALLING!!!!!!MOST ADAM FANS SAY THAT THEY LIKE KRIS BUT LIKE ADAM MORE…THATS NOT NAME CALLING!!!!!!

  355. This is a copy and paste from “The Watcher”, Maureen Ryan from The chicago Tribune (.com)

    …….

    Oh, the comedy. It’s killing me.

    But the funniest part of the night was the propagation of this year’s “Idol” spin: The idea that this is an evenly matched competition.

    In what universe does Adam Lambert not wipe the floor with Kris Allen?

    I don’t have a dog in this hunt, as the saying goes. I don’t consider myself an Adam partisan, just someone who recognizes that Adam is by far the more charismatic performer. None of the Tuesday songs blew me away, but they all just reinforced the fact that Kris is a nice guy who sings and Adam is a Performer.

    I know Adam and Kris do different things; Adam is the theatrical guy and Kris is the coffeehouse crooner. Both of them could find success in their respective realms. But Adam has the charisma and the presence that Kris lacks. Adam, quite simply, has the potential to be a world-wide mega-star, and Kris just doesn’t. End of story.

    So, during Wednesday’s finale, I’m sure we’ll be told that once again that the two contestants got a total 85 kajillion votes, an interplanetary record, blah blah blah. What they won’t tell you, because they never release the vote totals, is that Adam will be the winner in a landslide.

    Who will win ‘American Idol'”
    Kris Allen
    37%
    Adam Lambert
    62%

  356. No Lance – I wasn’t referring to you either… If you really want to know just go through the posts of yesterday and today. Everyone has a right to voice their preferences and opinions. That is the purpose of these message boards. But there is no excuse for attacking the opposing contestant and his fans. It’s rude, immature and mean spirited.

  357. That survey is out of 2236 people. I VOTED more times than that. Those little pipsqueak surveys don’t amount to a hill of beans.

    IdolDial is more accurate.

  358. Thanks for sharing Kathleen F… several blogs and entertainment news columns I’ve been reading have the same opinions.

  359. Maureen Ryan is a master of pulling on the emotional strings of her readers. Reporters are out there looking for the story that will get the most attention. Well, a partisan article like that will get attention, at least. It is a bunch of bologna, though. It is simply her opinion, which I believe to be completely wrong.

  360. Hi Donna (Ft. Lauderdale) – I agree with the popularity thing…. if you read the American Idol website, the after show interviews with ADAM and Kris tells it all. They both asked that America not vote because of a person’s religion, or gender, or personality, but— they asked that the votes be for the SINGING.

    We all know that if America did what these two remarkable young men asked, then ADAM would be the winner hands down.

  361. Seems like all the commentators are of the same opinion that Adam will win the title. By commentators I mean TV talk shows and columnists. I haven’t found one article or have I seen a talk show to the contrary yet. I’m still looking. Although the commentators and columnists aren’t the ones who decide the outcome… unless, of course they took part in the voting.

  362. Lance- how were you able to vote that many times – I wrote earlier that I couldn’t get through – busy most of the time. I have AT&T landline and my cell carrier is Verizon – no calls got through on Verizon.

    I really would like to know how other people faired with the voting..

    Thanks

  363. At the moment I’m watching a program “Idol Tonight” on a satellite station. They’re interviewing past year’s contestants and virtually all of the ones who would actually reveal their opinion about who will win to night, have the opinion that Adam will win. I tend to believe that people who have made it in the music industry know what it takes to get there.

  364. KATHLEEN F……I COULD NOT GET THRU WITH MY VERIZON CELL EITHER BUT I HAD NO PROBLEMS WITH MY LANDLINE…..ON THE WEST COAST I VOTED WITH NO PROBLEM TILL 12:00….FOR ADAM OF COURSE…

  365. I think the best way to vote is to text. As I said earlier, I text voted 912 times in the 4 hours the polls were open. What’s good about that is they send a confirmation that the texts were received.

  366. Thanks for the information Lance,

    I thought it was only 4 hours of voting… and do you have AT&T as cell phone carrier?

    My husband, daughter, 2 sisters and brother in laws and I tried for 4 hours and got through about 30 times until the last 45 minutes and we got through a few more times. My daughter, sisters and their husbands were calling from their own homes – all in Connecticut – I read that the West Coast calls went through the best, but who knows if this is even true……..

  367. I’d be curious to know how Lance was able to vote by computer…

  368. Hi Donna, only AT&T cells can text – I have Verizon – maybe it is time to switch – LOL = that is if I continue to be a fan of American Idol- I am not sure of that one……

  369. Donna, I agree but look at the voting problems – and the amount of votes some people voted is staggering.

    You know I am a HUGE fan and I couldn’t vote for my choice – disappointing to say the least.

  370. Kathleen F., perhaps AI should work a deal with the a few of the top cell phone providers so that everyone who uses a cell phone has the option to text their votes.

    Virtually everyone I know up and down the east coast owns a cell phone. Not all use AT&T though. Verizon and Sprint are the other two main providers. Doesn’t seem fair that AT&T customers have the edge.

  371. I gave verizon wireless and NONE of my calls went through..always busy, my daughter from Washington DC had the same problem. I am from the NE of PA, so is that the problem? All cell phone carriers should allow texting the vote. I never got one vote in for Adam last night and that is a shame..I have watched the show since the beginning and every week have voted for Adam and the one night it mattes, no one in my family could get through.
    Hope Adam wins..Kris is a doll, too, though not as talented in the singing area as Adam..great musician though

  372. In a few hours all this will be over. I would like to thank all the good and not so good people I have met here… Kathleen, Phyllis, Frank, Glambert and of course Feed-Up and Fanny who are Gokey fans.

    It has been a hell of a ride. The mudpie slings are never ending! 🙂
    But it has all been good!!!

    CARRY ON ADAM LAMBERT!
    Win or lose… YOU ARE MY IDOL!

  373. Hi YL, — Good people indeed – I hope we will chat some more tomorrow after the show…..

    Best of luck to all the voters and especially to ADAM and Kris tonight – they will both, I am sure enjoy the show and be happy for each other – they have shown the world what true friendship is……..

    May we all be so lucky!

  374. ADAM IS SO UNBELIEVABLE.
    KRIS IS ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE. HE MAKES ME WANT TO PUNCH MYSELF WHEN HE SINGS.
    I VOTED ADAM, FOR ME AND FOR ALL OF THE PEOPLE WHO COULDNT VOTE.!
    IF HE IS NOT THE AMERICAN IDOL THEN AMERICA WILL HAVE IT WRONG AGAIN.
    ADAM!
    ADAM!
    ADAM!
    ADAM!
    ADAM!

  375. Earlier today I wrote this on American Idol’s website in a forum titled “ADAM IS A CLASS ACT, WE, HIS FANS WILL BE TOO:”

    “We have all learned from ADAM on this season’s American Idol. He showed true friendship to the nation, he showed the world how important it is to remain true to yourself, he showed by his example how to be humble, yet sure of himself, he made the world take notice of tolerance…..

    As his fans, we have him to thank for all these things and also the gift of his voice, sweet personality, politeness, smile, beautiful face and overall attractiveness and his wonderful performances that stirred a nation and the world.

    Since he showcases tolerance, we all need to do the same. He is a class act, and in a class by himself.”

    Many people responded and even copied my post – to request that ADAM fans act classy like ADAM, and not to do anything that would reflect badly on him. Many people wrote that we have been classy fans and not “bashers.” Let’s continue to do the same, even if the vote doesn’t turn out the way we want, or conversely, if it does, there will be no room for gloating. I pledge to not respond to anyone where it will not be classy like ADAM.

  376. To Kathleen F How beautifully written, I can see Adam writing something like that..congrats to you…you are a leader among men….(or women, in your case lol). Best to both Adam and Kris, although I am a true Adam fan, have always been since January…

  377. OMG – ADAM is ABSOLUTELY, INCREDIBLY, AMAZING!!!! – won’t spoil it for the fans who haven’t seen it yet. JUST WAIT

  378. Hi Kathleen F, I heard that the entire show was broadcast live on our national satellite channel, but all of South Africa was obviously in dreamland at that time. I know the result but will try and keep it for myself until tonight when it will be screened again during peak time.
    This was really fun to experience it with America and the rest of the world. Great show!!!!

  379. IF I MAY SAY….
    THIS SEASON FINALE WAS THE BEST I HAVE EVER SEEN…

    AND AGAIN I HAVE TO GIVE CREDIT TO ADAM FOR BRINGING IN THE BEST AND BIGGEST BANDS OUT AGAIN. THE PERFORMANCE WITH KISS BLEW ME AWAY AND THE ONE WITH QUEEN ALMOST MADE ME CRY… IT WAS LIKE HE FILLED IN THE VOID THAT FREDDIE MERCURY LEFT…

    I AM IN AWE! IT HAS BEEN 10 HRS BUT IT STILL LINGERS THROUGH THE VERY DEPTHS OF MY SOUL…
    WOW! HOW THAT MOVED ME…

    ADAM IS STILL MY IDOL!

  380. AND IF I MAY SUGGEST…

    IT WOULD BE ASTOUNDING TO SEE QUEEN REUNITE, GO ON TOUR WITH ADAM AS THEIR GUEST VOCALIST…

  381. UNFORGETTABLE PERFORMANCES…

    1. ADAM & KRIS / QUEEN
    2. ADAM / KISS
    3. ALLISON / CINDY
    4. FEMALE TOP 13 / BLACK-EYED PEAS

    AND I ABSOLUTELY LOVED…
    KARA / BIKINI GIRL!

  382. For the Adam fans I say all he has lost is the title of “American Idol” but he is a winner in is own rights. the important thing is he got to showcase his talent and the right people took notice.
    Kris was my Idol from the remaining seven, and as the cuts continued I became more convinced he would have won- the guy has MAD Talent. Whatever he sings he brings to life because he puts a lot of passion into it. Hats off to him.
    However for both Kris and Adam it was nothing but a Win Win situation. There was no losers they both have their unique style and they are destine to succeed.

  383. This is the best finale I have ever seen on any show..Adam with Kiss and Queen—how cool was that? He is a true artist..congrats to Kris, I did not vote for him (although I did not vote for anyone the last night since Verizon phones could not get through for four hours), but Kris is a nice guy, and very humble. Kris and Adam reminded me of Dave and Dave last year..those two really cared about each other and had respect for each other, just like Kris and Adam did. Neither one of them are losers..they are both winners..by the way, how about Alison and Cindi last night? That girl is so talented..and the way she dances, awesome..it was so nice to see Alexis back again..she should have gone a lot farther than she did..also, why dont all the finalist tour? Why only the top ten? Seems to me, that Alexis would only add to that show. Congrats to Kris and Adam..you are both humble, talented and will go far..although Adam is still my fav

  384. OMG YL your post #478 and Kathy #482 are exactly what I was going to post. I didn’t vote for Kris but I congratulate him. It broke my heart when the first words out of his mouth were “Adam should get this” or something like that. I could see those two really bonded a friendship.

    The show was SPECTACULAR!!! I was blown away from start to finish. But the BEST part was the Queen segment. O M G!!! Like YL it brought tears to my eyes. Adam was at the top of his game last night. I can’t wait to see what he does NEXT.

  385. Rachael – Caribbean girl… thank you for your post. You have CLASS girl… 🙂

  386. 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

  387. TO YL: THANKS…..THAT ARTICLE SAID IT ALL.
    THE SADDEST PART OF ALL OF THIS IS THAT YOU COULD TELL LAST NIGHT THAT KRIS REALLY FELT THAT ADAM DESERVED TO BE THE AMERICAN IDOL…..ADAM WAS AS GRACIOUS AS HE HAS BEEN ALL SEASON….KUDOS TO KRIS AND TO ADAM. THAT WAS ONE OF THE BEST IF NOT THE BEST AISEASON FINALE SHOW……UNTIL THE END!!!!!!!
    I DO WISH KRIS GREAT SUCCESS……ADAM WILL HAVE HIS DAY……
    ITS BEEN A PLEASURE CONVERSING WITH YOU AND ALL MY ADAM FANS….GONNA MISS YOU ALL….HOPE TO SEE YOU ON THE SITE NEXT SEASON…..WE CAN ALWAYS HOPE THAT AMERICA ONE DAY DOES GET IT RIGHT FOR THE RIGHT REASONS!!!!!

  388. OMG YL!! Your post ROCKS!! AI has a link to voice one’s opinion as to whether or not Adam got robbed. Hopefully the powers that be will actually read the posts there. Everyone is basically disgusted about the outcome for various reasons but mainly faulted the voting system. As huge as AI is I’m sure they can obtain software that allows one vote per person. I venture to say that virtually everyone in America is in possession of a cell phone. Once the vote is called or texted in that number could be blocked. I know that will leave out people who only have land lines but they have to be in the minority. AI has the time and the resources to come up with a fail safe method of improving the voting system.

    Turning a talent competition into a popularity contest has got to stop or American Idol will become a joke and lose the majority of it’s viewers.

  389. Donna I so agree with you..I have verizon and I tried for four hours to get through on Adams three lines, but not once did it go through..I was calling from PA. My daughter in DC also with verizon tried for four hours for Adam and none of hers went through either. How can all three lines be busy for four hours. Where did you see the link on AI about whether or not Adam got robbed…I think so if two people could not get through for four hours what was the problem????? Voting issues have always plagued this show..What about Dancing with the stars, you can email your choice, phone it in, text it in, but you have a limit of how many calls/emails, etc you can do. Adam should have won..not that Kris is bad, he is not..he is very sweet and has a wonderful voice, but an entertainer??? No way…Adam should have won and he was so gracious..what a gentlemen. Let me know how I find that link on AI about Adam being ripped off. Thanks. I will miss this blog every day…I cannot wait for next year. I wish they were like Dancing with the Stars and had two separate shows per year..that would be awesome.

  390. DONNA
    That should really be the case. It should really be 1 vote per number but do you honestly think they will allow that? This is a money-making business with CHARITIES to support. At this point I think it is next to impossible. Yet, I hope that AI realizes that a show must have credibility to rate and to keep the money coming and the charities fed. Otherwise, like u said Donna, AI will become a joke…

    PHYLLIS G.
    I am glad I ran into u and the rest of the gang. The sad part is I do not feel like watching AI next season because I feel it has lost it’s credibility. I actually felt that when CHRIS DAUGHTRY got booted in AI Season 5. I did not watch AI for the next 2 Seasons. But when I saw ADAM LAMBERT I knew I needed to watch and as it turned out nothing’s changed…
    It’s frustrating…
    But the best part is… I ran into u guys. Do take care now and thank you!

  391. Hi Kathy, YL and Phyllis G… I, too enjoyed chatting with you and all the others here – even MOST of the Kris fans except for a couple… LOL
    I’m sad that this message board is ending.

    Kathy – if you scroll up to the top of this page click on “home” that is where you’ll find the link to the message board where you can voice your opinion on whether you think Adam got robbed. Wait till you see how many have posted there. It will almost be a slap in the face of their viewers if they don’t acknowledge it.

    Take care everyone and perhaps we’ll meet on next year’s message board… 🙂

  392. GOOD MORNING TO ALL MY ADAM FANS….I STILL CAN’T GET OVER THE DISAPPOINTMENT BUT LIFE GOES ON AND NOW I’LL JUST WAIT AND FOLLOW ADAM’S CAREER….I’M SURE ITS GOING TO BE A HUGH SUCCESSFULLY ONE…..WAITING TO SEE HIM VEGAS ONE DAY……

    TO DONNA, YL, KATHY, KATHLEEN F, MARY ANNE (NASHVILLE), GIANNA, FRANK (TALLAHASSEE) LISA & RON (SANTA BARBARA) BABS AND ANY OTHER ADAM FANS THAT WERE ON THIS SITE…I WILL MISS YOU ALL….IF YOU HAVE ANY UPDATES ON ADAM DURING THE YEAR PLEASE EMAIL ME @ pjg162@aol.com…JUST PUT ADAM FAN IN THE SUBJECT BOX……
    I DON’T KNOW HOW LONG THESE COMMENTS WILL GO ON SO I’LL SAY GOODBYE—ITS BEEN FUN….
    HAVE A WONDERFUL AND HAPPY SUMMER….
    AN ADAM FAN FOREVER!!!!!!!!

  393. If it is any comfort for the fabulous ADAM LAMBERT fans. DON’T BE SAD! ADAM HAS ALREADY HAD 5 producers offer him a recording deal. And ADAM will not compromise him self. HE SAID ” QUOTE” I AM WHO I AM. AND I WILL NOT CHANGE MY SINGING STYE OR ANYTHING ESLE FOR ANYONE! He went on to say he changes his songs up. And he is right. He is cool and can sing anything. HE SAID HE IS GLAD HE DID NOT WIN AMERICAN IDOL!! HE DOES NOT NEED IT. AND HE WILL NOT BE PUT IN A BOX. He said Kris is a really nice young man. But Adam said Kris does not know how hard the music world can be. And it is going to be a BIG shock to Kris when he finds out how cruel the music busness is. He tried to help out Kris by telling him what goes on in the music business. But Kris said thats nice Adam! But I am going to sing the type of music I want to sing. And dress like I want to. Adam said Kris is young and naive. And he hopes all the best for Kris. And hopes he can adapt to what ever they choose for him. So God Bless you Adam!!! And God Bless Kris too!

  394. Arkansas Democrat-Gazette Thursday,May28, 2009. Section B. Front page!! PRODUCERS AT&T SAY IDOL VOTING FAIR, VERIFIED?? ADAM LAMBERT FANS DECIDE FOR YOUR SELF! Complaints about unfair voting tactics in last week’s AMERICAN IDOL finale bubbled out of the blogosphere and surfaced nationally Wenesday, but the shows producers and ( SPONSOR AT&T) defended the vote that resulted in Kris Allen winning the title. In it’s coverage of the Idol frenzy locally, the Arkansas Democrate – Gazette reported on May 20, that AT&T, A Coporate sponsor of the televized competition, provided MORE THAN 30 cell phones as well as instruction on “POWER TEXTING” at a party at the Peabody Little Rock Hotel on the competitions final performance night, May 19 th. POWER TEXTING REFERS TO METHODS BY WHICH A CALLER CAN SEND AS MANY AS 10 VOTES AT ONCE!!!!!!!! A T&T reprensentatives also made 50 TEXT-READY PHONES available at a watch party at Conway’s Estes Stadium and provided a cell-phone charging station, the news paper reported!! AT&T’s mobile-phone network IS THE ONLY ONE ON WHICH IDOL WATCHERS CAN CAST VOTES THROUGH TEXT MESSAGES!!!!!!!!!! supporters of runner-up Adam Lambert claimed voting irregularities on Internet chat boards, according to a story in Wenesday’s New York Times. In a prepared statement Wenesday, Fox Broadcasting Co.said, ” Fox and the producers of AMERICAN IDOL are absolutely certain that the results of this competition are fair, accurate and verified. Kris Allen is without a doubt, the American Idol !!!!!!!!! Fox has a third party-system in place to ensure that votes are fair, and there’s NO WAY THAT A FEW INDIVIDUALS COULD HAVE TAINTED THE PROCESS, THE COMPANY ADDED!!!! At the Peabody watch party Bobbie Kierna of Greenbriar VOTED 10,840 TIMES ON ONE OF THE PHONES PROVIDED BY AT&T “AT A ROPED OFF AREA WITH SIGNS ADVERTISING IT AS A ” TEXTING ZONE FOR ALLEN, WHO WAS IN SCHOOL WITH HER DAUGHTER AT THE UNIVERSITY OF CENTRAL ARKANSAS!!!!!!! ADAM LAMBERT FANS READ ALL OF THIS AND DO THE MATH!!!!! AT&T SET UP A 15-FOOT-TALL LOGO BALLOON IN THE HOTEL’S LOBBY AND USED AT&T TABLECLOTHS, SAID GREG MOSSER, DIRECTOR OF CATERING AND CONFERENCE SERVICES AT THE PEABODY!!!! ALSO TWO LOCAL MANAGERS WENT TO THE EVENT, HE SAID, AND THE COMPANY” “GAVE AWAY PHONES AS PART OF THE PROMOTIONAL EVENT HELD WITH RADIO STATION KLAK-FM ALICE 107.7. At lats weeks event,”MATT JORDAN, SENIOR MARKETING MANAGER FOR AT&T SAID THE COMPANY SET UP TH ” TEXTING ZONE ” as an official sponser of AMERICAN IDOL. SOUND FAIR YET ADAM LAMBERT FANS??? A handful of AT&T staff members were there, handing out fliers and TEACHING PEOPLE_ (NOW GET THIS!!!) TO POWER TEXT!!!!!!!!!! WOW! iS IT STILL FAIR ADAM LAMBERT FANS? At Estes Stadium at UCA, a handful OF AT&T STAFF MEMBERS WEARING POLO SHIRTS WIT THE AT&T LOGO SET UP A COUPLE OF TABLES, SIGNS AND A CHARGING STATION FOR CELL PHONES!!!!! Sonja Keith an organizer for the Kris Allen Kick Awesome Task force said she had talked to a local AT&T representative about problems with getting through to AMERICAN IDOL voting lines at a previous watch party, as well as trying to secure prizes as giveaways, when he mentioned that the representatives would be at the Peabody watch party and could also go to Conway.. SOUND GOOD YET ADAM LAMBERT FANS??? In a prepared statement Wenesday on the allegations, AT&T said ” In Arkansas, a few local AT&T employees were invited to attend two local watch parties organized by the community!!!! caught up IN THE ENTHUSIASM OF ROOTING FOR THEIR HOME TOWN CONTESTANT, THEY BROUGHT A SMALL NUMBER OF DEMO PHONES WITH THEM AND PROVIDED TEXTING TUTORIALS TO THOSE WHO WERE INTERESTED!!! ” Kevin Kelly siad on the local Fox TV Net work evening news THAT ” NO PHONES WERE TAKEN TO ADAM LAMBERTS HOME TOWN!!! STILL SOUND FAIR ADAM LAMBERT FANS? On with the news article!! In the future , AT&T will make sure employees ” UNDERSTAND OUR SPONSERSHIP CELEBRATES THE COMPETITION, NOT INDIVIDUAL CONTESTANTS!!! according to the statement. ” That said, It’s quite a leap to suggest that a few individuals( WE NOW HAVE AT LEAST 80 POWER TEXT MESSAGE POWER PHONES VOTING FOR KRIS ALLEN!!!) WOULD HAVE IMPACTED THE FINAL RESULTS. IN THE MEAN TIME “TOO BAD ADAM LAMBERT!!!!!!!!!! “BACK TO THE NEW PAPER ARTICLE! Keith said she’s upset that AT&T’S involvement , which SHE FELT WAS A GOOD THING!!! ( TOO BAD ADAM LAMBERT) HAS CAST A SHAWDOW OVER ALLEN’S VICTORY!!! I don’t think it influenced the out come,” she said. ” I think it’ sad that a week later this kind of thing has come up shortchanging Kris Allen. WHAT DO YOU THINK ADAM LAMBERT FANS??????? DO YOU THINK THIS WAS FAIR? REMEMBER AT LEAST 80 POWER TEXT MESSAGING AND BOBBIE KIERNA’S 10,840 TEXTS ON A POWER TEXT PHONE!!!!!!!! PROVIDED BY AT&T.. WHO GOT SHORT CHANGED???????? DO YOU THINK ADAM LAMBERT GOT A TRUE VOTE WITH ALL OF AT&T’S PEOPLE HANDING OUT POWER TEXT PHONES???? NOW PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THIS IS IN THE LOCAL ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT- GAZETTE NEWS PAPER. THURSDAY, MAY 28, 2009, SECTION ~ B ~~~ PAGE ONE AND PAGE 8 AND THE PART THAT SAY’S ” PRODUCERS, AT&T SAY IDOL VOTING FAIR, VERIFIED IS IN BIG BLACK LETTERS. AND this is public information!!!!!! YOU CAN GET A COPY OF THE NEWS PAPER. YOU KNOW THE DATE AND SECTION AND PAGES THIS PUBLIC KNOWLEDGE IS ON. DO YOU THINK ADAM LAMBERT WHO SOMON COWELL SAID WOULD BE KNOWN WORLDWIDE GOT SHORT CHANGED???????

  396. It is sad to hear how bitter Adam fanatics are. Even now, you have to cry foul. But where was the foul? Were you unable to vote as much as Kris fans obviously did? So sorry. Why didn’t you take advantage of available technology? I really don’t understand why you all are still so pathetic. Get over it. Kris won and Adam lost.

  397. HELLO WENDY,
    ADAM FANS ARE NOT BITTER…JUST A LITTLE DISAPPOINTED IN THE SYSTEM……
    TO BE HONEST IF YOUR FOLLOWING KRIS…ITS ALMOST PATHETIC THE WAY HE IS RECEIVED AND THE WAY THAT ADAM IS….I TRULY FEEL BAD FOR KRIS BECAUSE I DO LIKE HIM BUT ITS SO OBVIOUS THAT THE AUDIENCES GO WILD FOR ADAM AND POLITE FOR KRIS…..ONLY TIME WILL TELL WHICH ONE OF THESE TWO WILL REALLY MAKE IT IN THE BUSINESS…..I DO WISH THEM BOTH SUCCESS….

  398. Phyllis G(LAS VEGAS, NV) AND (DONNA FORT Lauderdale.) Hi THIS IS SHERRY. MY POST IS DIRECTLY OUT OF THE ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT GAZETTE. Adam Is telling us to not be upset! I thank-You guys for your friendship through this whole mess! Donna and Phyllis! Hope all of you are well and doing good. It really was cheating what they did here in Arkansas! I live in Little Rock, Ar. I am a person of integrity. And even if Adam who I consider a SUPERSTAR is content that’s good. But I consider what happened a matter of principle!! I would like to know where to send “Simon Fuller producer of American Idol “) an email telling him how I feel about their cheating and their sponser AT&T cheating for Kris. I feel sorry for Kris because he knows they cheated down here in his home town of Conway Arkansas. He is a christian and I am sure it upsets him. He is talented. But no where near as talented as ADAM LAMBERT. I joined an ADAM LAMBERT FAN CLUB. It is really cool. Adam talks to his fans and tells us not to be up set. That he has had many lucrative offers and the next chapter of his life is just beginning! I love all you guys! We did the best we could for Adam. and now we can wait and watch his career zoom. Won’t it be fun? If you guys joined ADAMS fan club , let me know! Take care and have a GREAT SUMMER. Phyllis,Donna and Kathleen!

  399. WENDY, I AM SORRY!BUT YOU ARE ACTING LIKE AN SILLY LITTLE FOOL! CAN YOU NOT READ, OR DO THE MATH? AND HOW THE FANS HERE IN ARKANSAS CHEATED FOR KRIS TO WIN??? YOU KEEP BLUBBERING! WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM??? ADAM DOES NOT CARE AND HE WILL GO ON TO BE A SUPER STAR AND KRIS WILL NOT!!! HE WILL MAKE MAYBE 1 OR 2 CD’S AND THAT’S IT. YOU HAVE BEEN BELLY ACHING THROUGH THIS WHOLE CONTEST! ARE YOU A HOMOPHOBIC OR WHAT? READ ALL OF #497 AND GO AHEAD AND TRY TO DENY THE PEOPLE HERE AT AT&T CHEATED!! IT IS EVIDENT YOU DID NOT READ THE WHOLE THING THAT WAS IN THE ARKANSAS DEMOCRATE- GAZETTE ABOUT AT&T PASSING OUT POWWER TEXT MESSAGE PHONES!! IT WAS JUST PURE ~ D CHEATING AND YOU CAN NOT ADMIT IT! WE ADAM FANS DON’T CARE ANYWAY! WAIT AND SEE WHAT KIND OF CAREER ADAM HAS BEFORE YOU PRATTLE ON AGAIN!!! I HAVE IGNORED YOU THROUGH THIS WHOLE THING. BUT YOUR COMMENTS ARE GETTING QUITE PATHETIC AND OLD!!! AND PHYLLIS IS RIGHT! YOU JUST CAN’T TAKE IT IF ANYONE SAYS ANYTHING ABOUT KRIS! NOTE, I DID NOT SAY KRIS CHEATED. I SAID AT&T( AMERICAN IDOLS SPONSER ) AND AMERICAN IDOL CHEATED! I LIKE KRIS AND HOPE HE HAS A NICE CAREER! BUT, I DON’T EXPECT IT TO LAST LONG!! PS~ AGAIN READ ALL OF #497 AND PLEASE GIVE IT A BREAK!!SHERRY
