Top 2: They are the champions!!!

Now this is a show!!!

Adam and Kris singing "We Are the Champions" with Brian May from Queen playing is classic!

I need Queen to sign Adam on as their lead singer ASAP.

And it ain't "American Idol" without a choir, so I was not at all surprised to see one appear on the stage. I am beside myself!

    I am not happy with AT & T supporting Kris Allen. He simply does not have the talent of Adam Lambert. I do not text, so I cannot do the super-texting thing, but I called in my votes for Adam 32 times on the final night. I paid for those votes.
    I think Adam Lambert has the star power of an Elvis, Johnny Depp, or Leonardo De Caprio. He has fabulous sex appeal, and I am not gay. But his talent and charisma are really overwhelming.
    Kris Allen is a nice guy. He would be really nice to invite over for a party and have him play and sing as backgound music. Adam, on the other hand, you want to glue your eyes on him and drink in his performances.

    I WOULD LOVE TO KNOW HOW MANY FOLKS REALLY RESEARCH THE FACTS BEFORE THEY POST SOME OF THEIR COMMENTS.

    ADAM WAS N.O.T ON BROADWAY! NOT! ! ! ! ! !

    BUT HERE'S AN OXYMORON FOR ALL THE SELF-PROFESSED,
    SO-CALLED, "CHRISTIAN", ADAM-HATERS WHO DON'T ALREADY KNOW IT. ADAM WAS, IN FACT, IN A STAGE PRODUCTION (ELSEWHERE) OF NONE OTHER THAN..............................

    "THE TEN COMMANDMENTS" ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

    OUCH! THAT MUST REALLY HURT, HUH? SO WHAT DO WE DO NEXT? HANG HIM???

    YEP! HE PLAYED JOSHUA.......ALONGSIDE VAL KILMER NO LESS....WHICH SPEAKS VOLUMES TO ME FOR ADAM'S TALENT AND HOW HE CAN DEFINITELY HOLD HIS OWN WITH THE BEST OF THE BEST; BOTH FROM AN ACTING AND SINGING STANDPOINT!

    BUT HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA................................................................
    I JUST LOVE GOD! HE EVENTUALLY PUTS ALL OF US IN OUR PLACE.....SO TO SPEAK.

    LAST I READ IN THE NEW TESTAMENT, EVERYTHING'S A SIN; "NONE IS GREATER THAN THE OTHER". AND IF YOU'RE LIVING IN THE OLD TESTAMENT, YOU'RE WAY BEHIND ON THE "REAL WORD OF GOD". JESUS WOULDN'T HAVE DIED ON THE CROSS OTHERWISE, AND I'M SO GRATEFUL TO HIM, CUZ I KNOW I'M ONLY HUMAN AND DO FALL SHORT IN MANY WAYS; AS WE ALL DO! AT LEAST I'M NOT ASHAMED TO ADMIT IT! ! ! ! HINT, HINT THOSE POSTING COMMENTS THAT GOD HATES GAYS? I ACTUALLY READ THAT ON ANOTHER BLOG. WHAT A GHASTLY THING FOR A "CHRISTIAN" TO SAY. I SURE HOPE YOU DON'T GO TO THE SAME CHURCH I DO! AND SAYING SUCH THINGS LIKE THE BIBLE SAYS THAT BEING GAY IS A SIN??? WHERE????? EITHER YOU WROTE YOUR OWN, OR WE'RE READING TWO ENTIRELY DIFFERENT BIBLES! ! !

    WELL, "JUDGE YE, LEST YE BE JUDGED YOURSELF"!

    BUT P.L.E.A.S.E.......JUST PLEEEEEEEEASE QUIT OVER-ANALYZING THE BIBLE AND INTERJECTING YOUR OWN PERSONAL BELIEFS! IT'S PRETTY CLEAR-CUT, AND IT'S ALL ABOUT L.O.V.E. THE LORD LOVES NOT JUST PEOPLE LIKE ME, OR YOU, OR KRIS, OR DANNY, ETC., ETC., ETC.

    HE LOVES US AAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL! ! ! !

    SO DO AS THE BIBLE SAYS.....L.O.V.E.....F.O.R.G.I.V.E....AND MOVE ON PEOPLE!

    ON A DIFFERENT NOTE, IF ADAM HAD WANTED TO BE A STAGE ACTOR AND SINGER FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE, HE WOULD NEVER HAVE TRIED OUT FOR AI. HE ONLY DID STAGE PRODUCTIONS.....IN HIS OWN WORDS....."JUST TO PAY THE BILLS". IT'S SO HARD TO BREAK INTO THE MUSIC INDUSTRY, SO GIVE HIM A BREAK. HOW MANY AGENTS DO YOU THINK ATTEND "STAGE PLAYS" SCOUTING FOR RECORDING ARTISTS. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? UNLESS YOU'VE BEEN ON THE BIG SCREEN, AND YOU WANTA BECOME A RECORDING ARTIST, AND YOU HAVE THE MONEY TO DO IT LIKE ACTORS SUCH AS JENNIFER LOPEZ, JAMIE FOXX, AND SO MANY OTHERS, IT'S JUST NOT GONNA HAPPEN. ON THE FLIP SIDE, LOOK HOW MANY RECORDING ARTISTS GO ON TO BECOME ACTORS!

    ADAM NEEDED AI TO BREAK INTO THE MUSIC INDUSTRY, AND....
    THANK GOD IT WORKED! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

    NOW HE WILL BE ABLE TO DO BOTH........ACT OR SING......AT WILL......AND ONLY IF HE SO DESIRES........AAAAAAAAAAAAAND.......

    HE WILL NOW BE FAMOUS FOR MANY YEARS TO COME! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

    KUDOS ADAM! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

    AND BTW...

    YES, I AM A CHRISTIAN TOO! ! ! ! !

    NO, I AM NOT A TEENY-BOPPER! ! ! ! !

    I'M JUST AN OLD LADY WHO HAS A GREAT APPRECIATION FOR EXTRAORDINARY, GOD-GIFTED TALENT, AND I STARTED ENJOYING MUSIC AGAIN THE VERY SECOND ADAM STEPPED ONTO THE IDOL STAGE. HIS PRESENCE, HIS CHARACTER, HIS HUMILITY, HIS TALENT, HIS VOICE, HIS EVERYTHING..............
    FLAWLESS! ! ! JUST AN OUTSTANDING YOUNG MAN IN EVERY WAY,

    AAAAAAAAND................I LOVE HIM! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

    I AM DISABLED AND CAN'T GET OUT TO ATTEND CONCERTS, SO I REALLY DO HOPE TO HEAR AND SEE HIM AGAIN ON MY TELEVISION SCREEN FOR MANY YEARS TO COME. I REEEEALLY WISH ONE OF THE NETWORKS WOULD JUST GIVE HIM HIS OWN WEEKLY SHOW. BUT BY ALL MEANS NOT FOX. IF THEY CAN'T PUT ON A FAIR "SINGING CONTEST" THAT TRULY AWARDS THE MOST TALENTED INDIVIDUAL, THEY DON'T DESERVE HIM. I GUESS THEY GOT THE RATINGS THEY WANTED WITH HIM, AS I AM CONVINCED THAT MILLIONS OF PEOPLE ONLY WATCHED THIS PAST SEASON BECAUSE OF ADAM LAMBERT! AT LEAST, I KNOW I DID, AND IT WOULD HAVE BEEN BORING, OR MEDIOCRE, AT BEST, WITHOUT HIM. STYLE IS ONE THING, BUT OVERALL TALENT IS ALTOGETHER ANOTHER, AND IF THE SUBSEQUENT SEASONS ARE GOING TO BE DOOMED TO HAVE THE SAME OUTCOME YEAR AFTER YEAR, AND BASED ON STYLE, PERSONALITY, RELIGION, SEXUAL ORIENTATION, OR WHATEVER AMERICA DECIDES IT WANTS TO VOTE FOR RATHER THAN OVERALL TALENT, WHAT'S THE POINT? I DON'T KNOW IF I'LL EVER WATCH ANOTHER SEASON, OR AT BEST, AN ENTIRE SEASON AGAIN, BUT I DEFINITELY KNOW I'LL NEVER VOTE AGAIN, BECAUSE I JUST CAN'T HELP BUT FEEL THAT MY VOTE NEVER COUNTED AND IT WAS A COMPLETE WASTE OF MY TIME. THERE JUST HAS TO BE A BETTER WAY TO CONTROL THE OUTCOME. PLUS, ADAM IS GOING TO BE A VERY TOUGH ACT TO FOLLOW INDEED! ! ! ! !

    AS SIMON WOULD SAY....SORRY!....THAT'S JUST MY OPINION!

    SO ABC, CBS, NBC...????? RATINGS-CITY AND MILLIONS OF DOLLARS WITH ADAM LAMBERT. I WHOLE-HEARTEDLY BELIEVE THAT!

    OH, AND QUEEN! ABSOLUTELY! ! ! I HAVE NEVER HEARD ANYONE COME EVEN CLOSE TO FREDDIE MERCURY'S VOICE OTHER THAN ADAM LAMBERT, AND HE REMINDED ME OF HIM FROM THE VERY FIRST NOTE I EVER HEARD HIM SING. BUT GUEST TOURS ONLY......MAYBE? I'D LOVE TO HEAR WHAT ADAM COMES UP WITH ON HIS OWN FIRST. HE HAS THE TALENT RANGE TO PURSUE WHATEVER GENRE HE DESIRES, AND I'LL BE PERFECTLY CONTENT TO HEAR HIM DO JUST ABOUT ANY OF THEM......
    EXCEPT FOR RAP OR COUNTRY THAT IS...JUST A MATTER OF TASTE FOLKS. NOT RIDICULING!

    ALSO, TO ALL THE ADAM-HATERS. I CHALLENGE YOU TO LISTEN TO THE STUDIO VERSIONS OF THE SONGS HE PERFORMED ON AI. AWESOME, BEAUTIFUL, AND SWEET MELODIC VOICE......TOTALLY DIFFERENT VERSIONS THAN HOW HE PERFORMED THEM ON STAGE. I STILL PREFERRED HIS RIVETING PERFORMANCES TO GO WITH THEM, BUT NOTHING SUBSTITUTES FOR A LIVE PERFORMANCE FROM A CLASS-ACT!

    CONGRATS TO KRIS ALLEN TOO. ALL THE CONTROVERSY IS NOT HIS FAULT, AND I BY NO MEANS WISH TO STEAL HIS GLORY. I SINCERELY HOPE HIS CAREER WORKS OUT FOR HIM JUST AS WELL AS ADAM'S WILL, FOR HIS OWN SAKE AS WELL AS THE SAKE OF ALL HIS FANS, AND THAT THEY GET TO ENJOY HIM JUST AS MUCH AS THEY HAVE ALREADY SO VEHEMENTLY CLAIMED TO, AND FOR JUST AS MANY YEARS TO COME. HE HAS A PLEASANT VOICE, PUTS HIS OWN SIGNATURE ON MUSIC, IS A TALENTED MUSICIAN, AND HE'S A GREAT KID TOO! VERY GRACIOUS! ! ! I CAN'T HELP BUT FEEL SORRY FOR THE KID, THOUGH, BECAUSE I REALLY BELIEVE, BASED ON HIS OWN COMMENTS, THAT HE'S GOING TO ASSUME SOME FEELINGS OF GUILT FOR ADAM NOT WINNING. I GIVE HIM KUDOS FOR ACKNOWLEDGING THAT, ENCOURAGE HIM TO LEAVE IT BEHIND HIM, AND TRULY WISH HIM THE BEST! ! ! ! !

    ALSO BEST OF LUCK TO DANNY, ALLISON, ANOOP, AND OF COURSE, MICHAEL GARVER (I LIVE 30 MINUTES AWAY FROM JASPER, TX). THEY ALL WORKED VERY HARD, AND EVERYONE SHOULD ASPIRE TO BECOMING EVEN JUST A SMALL FRACTION OF THE HUMAN BEINGS THEY ALL ARE! ! ! HOPEFULLY, THEY WILL ALL HAVE THEIR MOMENT TO SHINE IN THE FUTURE.

    AS FOR THIS SEASON, I PERSONALLY FEEL THAT ADAM WAS ROBBED OF A TITLE! BUT THAT'S ALL! ! ! BEAUSE IF THE GENERAL CONCENSUS IS CORRECT ABOUT AI CONTRACT RESTRAINTS, THEN I'M ACTUALLY HAPPY HE DIDN'T GET IT! HE NEEDS TO DO HIS OWN THING, IN HIS OWN WAY, AND IN HIS OWN TIME! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

    BUT LETS JUST TRY TO FIND SOME COMMON GROUND HERE AND BE HAPPY FOR ALL OF THEM, PLLEEEEASE!

    ENTERTAINMENT IS SIMPLY ENTERTAINMENT, THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE WINNER IN A COMPETITION, AND EVERYONE HAS THEIR FAVORITES!

    ADAM LAMBERT JUST HAPPENS TO BE MINE, AND I AM JUST SO HAPPY AND SO THRILLED FOR HIM THAT HE HAS FINALLY GOTTEN THE BREAK HE NEEDED; ESPECIALLY GIVEN HE WAS ONE OF THE OLDER CONTESTANTS AND HAS ALREADY PUT SO MANY YEARS INTO HONING HIS CRAFT. HE SO RIGHTFULLY EARNED AND DESERVES IT JUST AS MUCH AS ANYONE! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

    SO GO, GO, GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO ADAM! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

    TAKE THE WORLD IN! THE POWER IS YOURS NOW BABY-DOLL! ! !

    Not to take anything away from Kris because he won fair and square but it's not a popularity contest and the judges should be the ones who decide the final vote based on talent.

    This is the first year that the results don't even seem to matter, although the announcement was shocking. That's because Adam is on his way to being a ROCK SUPERSTAR, idol or not. He didn't need to win idol to be STAR that he really already is.

    QUEEN WOULD ROCK WITH HIM AS LEAD!!!!

    I agree with Chi Chi. All thr front runners seem to disappear. Look at Clay Aiken, he became more popular than Ruben Studdard. Adam will probably have the same luck. As for all the people that do not think he should have one jsut because he might be gay, your guys protest too much. Nevertheless, I kind of hope Queen would have made him an offer today, just to overshadow the fact that the people who voted for someone who "fits" what they believe should represent the United States chose Kris as the winner. Good Luck Adam, you deserve it.

    Adam truly deserved to win. Not only is he incredibly talented, but his showmanship was very greatly appreciated this year. Idol has never had anything like it or him before and it made this year very interesting. I tried getting through to vote for him and kept getting busy signals.

    I am thrilled Kris won. I actually could not get through to vote for him, but would have had I gotten through! I think America got sick of the judges trying to sway the american public for 'their' pick. They did everything short of anointing him "The American Idol". Don't get me wrong, Adam is VERY talented–he had to be to already have performed on Broadway! Notice they gave him very little direction–just heaped on paraise for his 'Iconic Status'. I see a great future for him filled with MUCH drama and celebrity antics. Kris kept his same personality and humble personality. I think I am done with Idol. Very boring this year because of the pre-determined–supposedly winner. Cara adds very little to the show if anything–and stripping on stage added NOTHING to the show. Cheap and over the top. They lost me for sure then!! It is like they are trying to make every attempt to revive the show–stooping to nothing. Sure has gone down hill the last couple of years! If they don't want America to vote–change the name to Paula Simon, Randy and Cara's IDOL pick. Quit putting us all through their crap and touchy feely antics!

    Disappointed does not even begin to describe what I felt when the results were announced. The show built up to the biggest let down in Idol, and possibly, television history. The talent and stars were all out for Adam. Even Priscilla Presley was in the audience....coincidence??? Adam has only been compared to Elvis on many occasions. Queen seems like the perfect fit, but Adam will not have any problems getting offers. To all those people saying Kris is more "radio friendly". I don't believe that. I've been downloading them both on i-tunes, but Adam is the one whose concert I'd pay money to see. No contest. Adam was in a league of his own this whole season. Everyone I know tried to vote for the full 4 hours and couldn't get through....sounds like a problem with the system to me.

    Every season, even if the winner was not Simon's 1st choice, he would still stand up to applaud them. This is the 1st time Simon did not stand up to applaud the crowned idol...because we all know Adam deserved it so much more!

    There were previous seasons i was disappointed with the winner but this season, i was beyond disappointed like Simon! And i don't even like music! Adam is that good! I WILL go watch my 1st concert ever...ADAM!!!!

    I watched the Results & was floored!! How could this happen!! ADAM is the overall total package & best American Idol I have ever seen. Anybody I spoke to here in Canada felt the same. Simon's face told it all. There must have been a mistake made somehow or on purpose. At the moment I feel I never want to watch A.I. ever again. I hope Adam ends up being better off by not going on these Tours & not having to cut a lousy recording with bad tunes! Who knows maybe Las Vegas is where he should be, or with Queen & blow everybody out of the water!!

    Give me a break! Adam doesn't sing. . . he screams & screeches. That doesn't take talent. Kris may not have been the most talented (Danny should have been there instead) but Adam, by far, should have been voted off a looong time ago.

    Oh, and the gay thing? Who cares? I am not a teenie bopper who voted for Kris, but Adam ruined his chances and only stayed in because of the judges saying he should be there. The CD/record buying public don't want to buy trash.

    As for these conspiracy theories- the thought that millions of people voted for Kris because Adam may or may not be gay- are you guys serious? Step back and think about that for a minute- this is America 2009. A few haters here or there may have done so, but look the majority of voters are tween girls and doubtful they care either way. I personally think the win had to do with phone problems! Adam please keep singing and put out lots of CD's!

    America made the wrong choice again. Adam derserves the crown. Kris even admitted it. This is the reason why, I don't watch American idol as much anymore because of the voters choices. They are supposed to base their votes on the singers ability to perform well on the stage not by popularity.

    American Idol needs to note the many comments from viewers who wanted to vote for Adam but got busy signals for a long, long time. I dialed non-stop for 15 minutes to all three of his numbers and didn't get through once. So, I waited another 10 minutes and then was able to get my vote in about one out of three dials.

    Is it true that ALL text votes get counted, regardless of the time they are received?

    How about allowing each viewer ONLY one vote? This is easily achievable on a web-site. This shouldn't be a contest to see how many times a teeny-bopper can text!

But as history proved before on American Idol even if you are not winning you are going to be more successful than the winner. Adam, the future is wide open and with that voice and those eyes you are going to be a Rock God as Kara said.

    American Idol is great viewing but some system that allows talent to be marked accordingly over just plain popularity – its is for an American singing Idol and not the most popular

    Too many times has the best idol/performer been ejected and that is proven with idol fallen contestants having greater hits that the eventual winner

    Many the judges should also be included as 20 factor of the final score of say the last 10 contestants,

    then we have a true American Idol

    I thought the exact same thing about Adam and fronting Queen. He outshined everyone tonight, and showed grace when his name was not called. Too bad people couldn't vote based on singing talent only, but Adam will be more famous now for not winning. Clive Davis can't control his genre. Kris even knows he didn't deserve to win. *sigh*

    So for those of you who are looking for Nora Jones,call my neighbor-she sings just like her-but NO one sounds like Adam Lambert, If you don't like Adams voice, just wait.......he can change it a million ways to suit you-watch him rock this needy world, in a nice way.

    I cannot believe the results.

    Crowning Kris Allen is like voting for Bush for the 2nd Term. No thought. No reality.

    Kris can't even hit the high note of the single he is supposed to record. He is so lame. Every song he sings sounds the same and his range is limited. His ability to arrange songs is lackluster at best.

    The only good thing is that unlike Bush, Kris will not last 4 years and will end up in obscurity before the year is out.

    Adam will be pursued by all the top agents and recording companies.

    Adam is the most well rounded talent to be on American Idol ever, hands down.Kris is also talented but Adam's talent is so huge Kris is overshadowed. I have no doubt both will be successful. When viewing such different styles it is hard not to be overcome by the range Adam puts out. But I don't want to downplay the talent Kris will continue to show in his venue. This was an amazing American Idol year. Both are stars, very different styles and can we complain when we get three amazing new talents who stand out when you include Danny? All of these guys shine! I wish them all success in bucketfuls/truckloads!

    This does not suprise me at all. Honestly, I like Kris. He seems a really sweet guy with a nice voice who fits the mold perfectly. Adam was just too edgy, too polished and perhaps too controversial to win American Idol. The show is beginning to show shades of the Miss America Contest with results just as predictable and the winner just as "acceptable".

    No problem Adam. Whether they liked or disliked you, you will be remembered and thats what it takes. On to bigger arenas and super stardom. Nothing to stop you now. Go and stretch your wings and make yourself a fortune.

    I think Freddy was smiling when Adam sang with Queen, I never thought anyone could replace Freddy but wow Adam sounded awesome. Chris winning frees Adam to be a fee agent, two years under Idol run would not have been good for his spirit. He's too talented to be artistically stiffiled.. I can't wait to hear his first cd.

    1. First of all, God didnt punish Adam because he is gay.. but he will hold all of you ugly souled judgmental freaks on here accountable. You dont measure up at all next to Adams beautiful soul.
    2. Yes, Adam could shine as a lead singer for Queen or alot of other famous bands out there.
    3. Adam didnt look that upset because he knows he will go farther this way!
    4. Kris Allen and his wife looked happy.. In the end it is okay..

    See, now that is how to be a good sport..

    Life is about spirituality, not religion or dogma.. go pray angry people

    What a great show tonight – hands down, the best Idol finale EVER! Adam is an amazing performer and should have won tonight but so be it - he'll have a great career. I'm headed over to Amazon right now to pre-order Adam's first CD.

    My dream – to see Adam and Queen together. I almost had a heart-attack when I heard the opening measures of the music, and saw the iconic silhouette of Brian May on guitar.... and then heard the opening lines sung by Kris. Ugh! Of course they would give him the part that his one and a half octave voice can handle. But when Adam came in and let it rip, it was pure heaven! You gotta know that Freddie was looking down on that scene and loving every bit of it. Only Adam could truly walk in Freddie's shoes! I was so happy to see that moment, too bad Kris kind of messed up the fantasy. But seeing Brian May's face smiling at Adam said it all. He really is the star. He's got the look, stage presence, banter with the audience, grace, and that incredible surrealistic gift of his 5-octave range. Thank God he is not the winner. Now he can do what he was meant to do, be a star, and not another nameless purveyor of schlock music sung by singers with no voice like Kris Allen. LONG LIVE ADAM!

    Every single major star was wanting to connect with Adam as they performed. Chris is adorable. But it makes the show a farce if the super-star talent of an Adam Lambert loses in the end. At least he won' t need Idol to make his career. He'll be a new kind of rock star....and, thank God, we'll be seeing a lot of him in the future.

    Alex,

    Please read and study your bible. At no time does God give the commandment to not be gay. And, I'm assuming you're Christian, the Laws of Leviticus were intended to guide Jews into repopulating Canaan. Therefore, there were many "laws" for people to follow, including how to properly prepare food and have sex with your wife. And, as for Sodom and Gomorrah–God was punishing the people for their idolatry (ummmm, maybe we should take note, here). The other two times "it" is mentioned is by Paul, who was a practicing Jew and followed the Laws of Leviticus. Don't make up what you think it should say.

    Well, one thing's for certain. There is NO WAY that Brian May would bring Queen to the Idol stage for the likes of Kris What's-his-name. He's scouting for a front-man, and I think he may have just found him. Congratulations Adam! You're now no longer bound by the constraints of an album you'll have to cut with the AI team. You can cut one with Brian May, or possibly Slash, because you can bet your butt that neither of them was their for the other contestants. They want Adam....they're savvy businessmen, and they know the real thing when they see it. Unlike the teeny-boppers, tone-deaf, elevator music lovers and bigots who voted for Kris.

He makes a presence whenever he is on stage. You don't see that with Chris. I could buy a album of music by Chris use it whenever I have insomnia? Oh just for the record maybe .. IF Chris makes it big he could hire a stylist and wardrobe expert for his mom. That outfit was some scary!

    Adam is so hot that he ignites a fire in many women (myself included!!)! I thought he definitely held his own with Queen, and when KISS appeared? What an exciting moment!! And I was never much of a KISS fan back in the day.

    Ivan–I agree, Freddie Mercury is supposed to be one Adam idolizes and I thought the same, he could fill the role. He also held his own with Kiss.

    I think the most surprising and pleasant pairing tonight was Danny Gokey and Lionel Ritchie....thoroughly enjoyed them together.

    Didn't like Alison with Cyndi Lauper....it reminded me of Christina Amphlett (Divinyls) and Lauper, not a good mix. In fact, I would have preferred Alison in head to toe leather, singing a duet with Christina Amphlett–something like "A Fine Line Between Pleasure and Pain" or "I Touch Myself." !

    Well its all over for the season and once again I walk away disappointed–should have been Adam and Danny in the final, and they deliver us Kris. Oh well, look for Adams first album and appearances in various shows. We'll have forgotten Kris by next season when they can dish up more disappointment. (Fantasia Barino, Taylor Hicks and now Kris Allen).

Nice he might be, but Adam is the best. But, whatever, Adam will have contracts coming out his ears for a long time to come, while Kris will be playing at County Fairs. There is a place for all of them. I, personally, will never invest ANY watching time in this show again. I can't stomach Kara, I think they only got her on there to make Paula look good.

    Well, I'm a bit surprised, but I won't say "America Got It Wrong" or that the "Contest Was Fixed." I don't think its either, I do think it was religious fundamentalists–I know a few, who agreed that Adam was more talented but who voted for Kris and gave lame excuses why. The best excuse I got from a woman at work was "Adam is more talented, but Kris is younger and I don't want him to be crushed if he loses." LOL 🙂

    Fortunately, from what I see, Adam Lambert will skip right on along, largely unruffled cause he knows who he is. I suspect that Kris will soon sink into Christian Rock obscurity. I bet the ultimate result will be more like Ruben Studdard and Clay Aiken. And, I daresay Adam will probably make it bigger than Clay ever did.
