Adam Lambert with Kiss – EPIC – Performance

Kiss
The real american idol, Adam Lambert, performing along with Kiss. Also showing off Adam’s journey on American Idol. Classic, iconic, rock performance.

Could there be a more perfect partner(s) for Adam?  They should sign him right now! Didn’t love the outfit, but it fit in and was total Adam.  You cannot convince me that Kiss was enticed to  ;a show like American Idol, for any reason other than being able to sing with Adam. Adam must have been in heaven.  This is him at his best, doing what he was born to do.  I’ve watched this quite a few times already and shall watch it many more.  We have our Rock God, our True Idol right here, and need look no further.  Kiss knows it too.  Just look at them and how happy they are to be singing with someone of Adam’s caliber.  I’m so glad Adam had this amazing opportunity.  He didn’t get the ‘title’, but the rock icons know who the true star of the season was.  This was just the beginning of the music legends clamoring for Adam’s attention.  If this was how it went on a tv show; can you imagine what is still to come? 

Love them shoes though… 🙂

Adam Lambert’s Rock Star Offer

Adam Lambert might have come in second to Kris Allen on American Idol last night, but he shouldn’t feel too bad: Rock legend Gene Simmons is a big fan of his already!
“Adam was fantastic,” the KISS frontmant tells Extra. “What a powerful and attractive man he is.”
But beyond his vocal talents, Gene thinks Adam has what it takes to rock out with the rest of his band.
“He can come on tour whenever he’d like,” offered Gene. “Of course he’d have to put his armor on because the fans, especially the KISS fans, take no prisoners. You gotta go big. Gotta be strong. You gotta be a rock, baby!”
So is Adam down for joining KISS on the road?
“That would be amazing… I would love that,” he tells Extra‘s Mario Lopez. “That’d be such an honor. I had so much fun. To perform with KISS, I would love that. What a wonderful compliment. Thank you, Gene. That was very, very nice of him.”

    I think Adams fans need grief counselling. At any rate little sense in following AI now, waste of time. Anyone know how we can tabs on Adam and his first album release?

    • Agreed. I won’t watch AI anymore, but will every album of Adam’s in my life. America sucks!!!!!!!

      • ooops. I will BUY every album of Adam’s.

        • Tom Clark says:

          Why don’t they start playing Adam’s songs on the radio. Hell, almost everything he covered was better then the original!

      • Yes!!! let all of us stop watching a.i. for being such a phoney show. Thank God adam participated this season cause I had enough 8 seasons. PS. This finale rocked!!! until the end of course.

        • AdamAddict says:

          I missed Adam already. What I’m going to do without him next week?

        • I dont think AI is to blame but the Christian Churches which pushed like no other for Kris. What AI should do is to consider America vote as one single vote among the judges. There weren’t 100 million people voting but 20 the most repeating their votes, that’s completely against what AI wanted as America making a fair decision.

          • Jeannine says:

            I also think they should change the way of voting. Only 1 vote per phone. I’m still feeling sick over this

          • I am a christian and I loved adam. Whatever you do dont let a bunch of religious biggots speak for the christian community. It is a darn shame that adam lost. Speaking on behalf of christian singers, I can tell you that he was the most original, most talented, best stage presence,and should have been the winner by a landslide. A I needs to put a limit on how many times a person can vote. Adam we all love you very much and pray that your career will go far. ROCK ON !!!!!!!!!!!!!

            • Adam lambert is hawt with a capital H. he has to be the best performer known to man. adam, marry me!!!!!

        • I agree!
          like I said before, Americans don’t know talent from their own ass!!!!! To vote Kris the idol is sickening to me. Adam is true to himself and unique guy who will rock the world!!!

          I truly didn’t care about any other AI season and who the winner was until this year! I don’t have any desire to watch AI again because there will never be another individual like Adam.
          Spoken from a true Canadian Girl!

      • YOURSFOREVER says:

        Hear me out please:

        1) AI discovered or/and gave a chance to ADAM to be part of the AI competition, otherwise we would
        NOT hear of this guy!!!
        2) Simon did an extra work to get those GREAT writers and groups to get clearance to record their BOMBASTIC BRILLIANT songs!

        2) Because of AI he got a HUGE exposure including outside the boarders! We are talking South America! BRAZIL! Etc…OMG! GOOD LOL

        3) AI was the first fundamental step to success and further exposure.

        4) AI made the finale CRAZY ENTERTAINING like we have NEVER saw it before. THANKS to ADAM.

        5) AI made the finale look like it was ADAM IS the winner! KISS, QUEEN etc….ALL that expanse they went through is MOSTLY for ADAM!

        6) Voting system has to be changed. PERIOD. Lets do something productive here. Though I know it is too late for ADAM and there will be no one who could top that (performances/voice).

        7) Honestly I think ADAM is better off without AI. More money to him!!!

        Conclusion: Let’s give BIG THANKS to AI at least for that! I DO: THANK “YOU VERY MUCH!

        • GlamGirlLee says:

          You are so right. I don’t think much of AI but they did bring Adam to us.So, I guess I will have to stop dissing AI. But I am still sad.

        • Your points are valid and I agree with you. AI definitely spared no expense. But don’t you think KISS and Queen were already lined up to do the show prior to voting? I’m not sure how all of that was arranged.

        • donna werner says:

          You’re right! Do you honestly think that QUEEN or KISS would of come on AI to perform with Kris Allen? I don’t think so!
          AI HAS to change its voting policies. They should have ONE number for voters to call. When the caller gets through, they then would press #1 for contestant A or #2 for contestant B. How simple is that? But i doubt they’d do that….AT&T wouldn’t make as much money…and thats what it’s all about. They don’t care about who the true winner is!

        • Completely agree…Thank you AI for introducing Adam to the world….but now on the issue of the voting….Either AI’s controlling the vote count or/and the “holy rollers” power banned against Adam just because. First and foremost AI needs an independent agency to handle the vote count if they want to declare the count as America’s vote…lets keep it accurate then! I thought there was a season when you could only cast 10 votes, but maybe that was a different show! I really don’t think that matters…anyhow power voting was kinda fun!!!
          Second subject, the “holy rollers”….I don’t like the classification of them as christains, because true christains would not have banned against Adam or any child of their creator’s… botomline is that they are out there, we just have to raise above them and yea I know…they’re assholes but we should try to practice Adam’s theory and see the good & positive in everyone & everything…Adam can’t wait to hear you rock on outside of the AI’s bubble….

        • star_child08 says:

          I agree completely. We should be grateful to AI for introducing us to Adam and for letting him do his thing by designing and executing all of his performances from the bottom up. And the finale did showcase Adam. It was Adam’s show, especially the last half hour.

          It would be interesting to know how many people voted for Kris and for Adam, not how many votes they each received. I don’t know but I suspect that many votes for Kris were just votes against Adam.

          Future AI seasons will never compare to this season because of Adam. He is a rare combination of talent and charisma.

      • I AM STILL GRIEVING … I TELL MYSELF I CAN TAKE IT NOW, BUT EVERYTIME I READ AND REMEMBER– I GET UPSET ALL OVER AGAIN!!! THE END OF IDOL FOR ME. THE END!

    • Hey, I am in a adam yahoo group if you like to join or anyone else. it’s all about adam
      OUR AMERICAN IDOL !!!!

    • debhutch says:

      I definitely need grief counseling! I went to the grocery store this am and I was venting on the poor little teenage cashier girl! I said it’s like a pitcher pitching a no-hitter and it’s the bottom of the ninth inning with 2 outs. Then, someone comes to the plate and gets a hit and ruins your no-hitter! Well, Adam had won every single show and at the finale, it got spoiled by someone who had been in the bottom 2 on 3 different occasions! Kris may be nice but this is not a personality contest. It is a singing/talent contest and Kris can’t come anywhere close to the vocal range that Adam has! I have truly been in mourning…I emailed AI and told them I would NEVER watch another AI ever again! Too many weird things happened re: texting and the AT&T phone lines, etc. Oh well, they have lost a lot of viewers…

      • WOW….SO HAPPY TO FIND PEOPLE WHO THINK LIKE I DO ABOUT AI AND ESPECIALLY ABOUT ADAM….I AM 67 YEARS OLD AND HAVE BEEN IN ROCK AND ROLL SINCE THE BEGINNING….MY GRANDCHILDREN LAUGH AT ME….THE POINT IS THOUGH THAT I HAVE SEEN EM COME AND GO AND EVERY NOW AND AGAIN SOMEONE LIKE ADAM COMES OUT OF THE BLUE AND JUST SWEEPS THE NATION OF TEENS OFF THEIR…THE THING ABOUT THIS IS THAT ADAM HAS SWEPT THE NATION AND BEYOND OFF OUR FEET…I LIKEN HIM TO ELVIS…MY PARENTS THOUGHT HE COULDN’T SING….HMMMM…DIDN’T LIKE ANYTHING ABOUT HIM..AND LOOK WERE HE WENT….TOTAL ICON WHO HAD TO WORK TO GET THERE..THANKS TO AI AND MODERN TECHNOLOGY..ADAM IS ALREADY THERE….AI DID DO THAT FOR US…ADAM DID THE REST…HE WILL BE AS BIG AS ELVIS IF HE ISN’T ALREADY….AND OF COURSE KISS WAS “IT” WHEN MY FIRST BORN WAS A TEENAGER…(NOW 46)…..AND NOW THW GENERATIONS FIT TOGETHER…I LOVE ADAM .I WANNA BE HIS ADOPTED GRANDMA…I WOULD LOVE HIM TO COME VISIT ME FOR A WEEK END BEFORE HE GETS TO FAMOUS…I THINK HE SHOULD RECORD ALL OF HIS AI SONGS ON A CD…BET IT WOULD SELL MILLIONS…DOES ANYBODY KNOW HOW I CAN GET A SIGNED PICTURE????SORRY FOR BEING LONG WINDED…TRYING TO GET MY ANNOYANCE WITH AI FOR THIS BIG BLUNDER THEY LET HAPPEN OFF MY CHEST….BUT LISTENING TO ALL OF YOU I REALIZE THAT ADAM DOESN’T NEED TO BE THE AMERICAN IDOL(TV STYLE)..HE WAS ALREADY THE AMERICAN IDOL BEFORE THE SHOW EVER ENDED…I DON’T KNOW HOW MANY OTHER SENIORS FEEL LIKE I DO …I HAVE SEEN ALOT OF SINGERS GET TO BE FAMOUS AND I’VE SEEN SOME GET HUGE…NAMELY ELVIS…MICHAEL JACKSON…GIVE HIM HIS PROPS..AND PROBABLY A COUPLE I HAVE FORGOTTEN ABOUT…..AND NOW ADAM…..I LOVE YOU ADAM….BE WHO YOU ARE AND DON’T EVER LET IT GO TO YOUR HEAD SO YOU FORGET WHO YOU ARE…KEEP GROUNDED …REMEMBER WHERE YOU CAME FROM AND GET READY FOR THE JOURNEY…YOU ARE IN FOR ONE HUGE RIDE…..

        • AMEN! I am almost 53 and I love to hear Adam. I think he is a singer that will relate to ALL ages. He brings something to everyone. I am patiently waiting for his first CD to come out. I too wish he would produce his songs he did on AI. What a talent has come to us.

    • Adam stated in an interview that he should have his cd out by the end of the year. He’ll be recording even as they are out on tour.
      On another note… I’ve read several of the comments below. Many state they’ll never watch AI again, Adam is better than Kris, and so on. First of all, I was glad that Danny Gokey was eliminated from the finals. His performance of Dream On, really showed that he needs a lot of work before he can ever be considered a real singer. Kris on the other hand was consistent in his vocals. All of us, I believe were so enthralled with Adam, that Kris never really stood out. Kris is a very good vocalist. He’s just not Adam. The difference between the two, Adam and Kris, is like comparing Robert Plant to Celine Dion to Beyonce. All fantastic artists. All quite different. However, I have to admit that my heart fell when Adam didn’t win. I actually, literally cried real tears after the finals. I love Adam to death and so wanted him to win. He was his usual, incredible Adam! But Kris was fantastic in the finals. His take on Heartless was phenomenal. Ain’t No Sunshine was great. I wanted both of them to be crowned the winner. That wasn’t gonna happen though. Now look at it from this perspective. If Adam would have won: A. No Boundaries would have had to be on his 1st CD. (I can’t imagine that Adam will do ANY song ever that will even slightly resemble No Boundaries… the song is bad). B. Adam would have been forced by contract to show up for all of the AI events. C. He would be forced to the 19 label (which I think he may still go that way. But won’t be forced to do so. He has his artistic freedom).
      After I was over the initial shock that Adam didn’t win, I was really happy for Kris. Paula stated in an earlier interview that Adam didn’t NEED to win. She knew Adam was going to be a superstar even without the Idol crown. You know, Adam doesn’t have a bad thing to say about anyone. Adam loves Kris. He really does. He is genuinely happy for Kris. Adam achieved his goal, “getting to the finals” of AI. I’m just really happy that it’s Adam and Kris that are out touring the circuit together in the aftermath of AI. It could have been Adam out touring around with Danny Gokey! To me, that just wouldn’t have worked. I don’t think Adam and Danny had the connection that Adam and Kris do. Anyway, Adam has a genuine goodness in him. I would love to see his fans embrace that as well. Adam really makes me want to see the good in people and be a better person. As for AI. They are a business. They are there to make money. Good reality tv is what they are hoping to provide. This year, they hit the jackpot when Adam Lambert wandered in to Audition. And we were fortunate the AI even existed. So be thankful for AI, and don’t turn your backs on them. No AI…. No Adam in your life’s or mine. Peace, Love and Rock On.

  2. rocknroll all night says:

    oh. my. god. how the f*ck did this kid NOT win??????????????

  3. i love this sooo much

    • i mean the performance*
      not adam losing. that’s just stupid.

      but i LOVE KISS<3333
      and i love adam

      i soo wanted this duet from the first time i heard him scream
      oh gosh
      hahaha 😀

    • ItsAnewDawn says:

      Agreed!!! Best performance of the night! Adam was in his element. We love you Adam!!!!!!!!!!

      • AdamAddict says:

        Adam nailed every song even the ford commercial. I didn’t noticed Kris was in it. Too focused at beautiful voice and beautiful face of Adam Lambert.
        When they sing as group where they got to dance a bit like cha cha,I think, my eyes were on Adam and when camera start focused at other people which I forgot they exist, I was like trying togo behind the tv and try to take a peek at Adam. How stupid is that?Cha cha cha!

        What is that he can’t do? He can sing,act and dance That’s what we all want. Be huge Adam not only as recording artist but with that beautiful face,you’re the next Johnny Depp! SEXY,grrr!!

  4. I will NOT be SILENT on what really happened on AI tonite. I AM ASHAMED OF WHAT THE SO-CALLED RELIGIOUS (i say hypocrdites, judgemental ignorants and haters) IN AMERICA DID TO ADAM LAMBERT TONITE! In my Bible what you’ve done to one of God’s creations, you’ve done to US ALL. SHAMEFUL, SINFUL & BIGOTED! THOSE R YOUR SINS YOU RIGHT-WINGED jokers. You are losers and you will always be losers-in life! Keep the hell away from my loved-ones!! Your like a cancerous growth on AMERICA AND ALL KIND, LOVING PEOPLE IN SOCIETY! Adam was more brilliant both days this week than anything I’ve seen in the last 30 yrs. He will surely be skyrocketed w/his career open and those hypocrites who voted AGAINST him instead of 4 somebody can go to hell, in my very personal & strong opinion. Not since the murder of RFK have I been so scared & shaken to my core for THIS SOCIETY. Thank God the REPUBLICANS aren’t in the WH, too. They are also hypocrites w/the likes of R.Limbaugh!! They’re ALL TO BE FEARED! congrats to ADAM LAMBERT FOR A PERFECT SEASON ON AI, (remember-the “singing”contest) YOU WON THIS CONTEST MONTHS AGO. SOOOO PROUD OF YOU!!! LOVE-PEACE-LOVE- (not hatred and hypocricy) BEAUTIFUL, TALENTED, CARRYING,GORGEOUS ADAM LAMBERT!!!!!!

    • Lamberkitten says:

      Word!

    • songwriter says:

      AMEN TO THAT haha.

    • Totally true! ADAM IS THE WORLDWIDE WINNER AND PERIOD. I´m just waiting his cd.

    • Fandomatic says:

      Careful there. Some of us Adam fans are right-wing bible-thumping Republicans. And I voted 4 hours for Adam. I’ve NEVER voted on AI before. I don’t hate anyone. I thought Adam deserved to win. He’s the most creative, talented, watchable and edgy singer I’ve ever seen on AI. He’s fantastic!

      Don’t buy into the news stories that divide America into Black or White, Red or Blue, Christian or Liberals that AI was pushing on their agenda. How obvious was ‘the guy next door versus the guyliner’? Ultimately, this is a TV show that is pushing stereotypes to pump their ratings. Why do you think they were pushing a Lambert and Gokey finale? Adam and Kris didn’t buy it and neither should you.

      I was worried about Adam’s votes because I had read so many posts to Danny’s fans from Adamaniacs that were downright full of hate. In a world where Adam, my idol, is asking us to be tolerant of each other, his fans can’t embrace that and each others differences?

      Thank God for Adam and Kris knowing what is important!

      I doubt that hate motivated anyone to vote. People just have different tastes in music. Just because we hear the glory note, doesn’t mean someone else hears it the same way. I’m so glad that Adam didn’t compromise who he is and water down his glory notes just to garner votes. He was definitely happier singing with Kiss and that was a joy to watch.

      • You are right . Adam was so surprise that he won. Even him said, Adam deserve this.Good to know that he knows. They become good friends and I am sure the Adam is goin to be succesful in anyting that he does.Love you Adam you rock ! congratulacions to Chris.

        Make love not war
        Stop the hate.

      • YOURSFOREVER says:

        Thank you for your post. I loved it. Though I still agree and disagree. I have read posts on AI site that cried to unite against ADAM wether they liked Kris or not. That’s the fact. One girl posted I would vote against ADAM just because her fav was eliminated! And we are not talking about DANNY. Also some ADAM’S fans tried to console DANNY”s fans after elimination. They got burned!!! I can understand why ADAM’s fans were angry. Tolorance is hard to maintain when you get smacked again and again..Anyways, what happened is happened let’s do something about it so it will not happened again.
        Adam deserves respect as he pays to everyone around him no matter of the race, religion, gender etc…He is a class act and I would love to follow it and him…

        Lets stop blaming and bring him more hard-die fans…

    • You said it perfectly! I’m sick to my stomach with the injustice and deafening intolerance!

      This KISS performace was fantastic. I loved KISS back in day, have this album! Adam looked very at home with them and with Queen also. I’m sooo very sad for Adam, but he’s going to skyrocket to the top. I cant wait for him to outwit, outsell and outperform! He is our WorldWide Idol.

  5. OK AMERICA…WTF YOU STUPID IDIOTIC LOSERS?! ADAM LAMBERT DESERVED THAT TITLE NOT KRIS DAMMIT!!! NEVER WATCHING AI AGAIN AFTER THIS. WHAT’S THE POINT IF THE BEST DOESN’T WIN ANYWAY

  6. ADAM LAMBERT SHOULD HAVE WON.

  7. Im really curious…..IS THERE SOMEONE OUT HERE WHO IS PLANNING TO WATH AI NEXT YEAR??????

    • Lamberkitten says:

      Not me honey!

      • GlamGirlLee says:

        Before Adam I never weatched AI intentionally. Now, I will intentionally NOT watch it, EVER. I will keep a tap on Adam’s career though…

        • AdamAddict says:

          I’m gonna watch it and see with my 2 own eyes how untalented they are compare to our most talented Adam.
          Adam is the first I care to vote even I live in Malaysia. I want to see who else can make me wake up early morning just to vote for them for 7 hours straight,who can make me can’t fall asleep because nervous and worried about them and who is that person that I don’t mind having my butt numb sitting in front of desktop voting!
          I want to see if there is a second person which I really doubt it.

      • I could care less of American idol anymore !!!! I will newer buy Ford also and boycott coca-cola !!! Sorry sponsors!!!

    • shrimpy says:

      NO….. NEVER ….

    • Fandomatic says:

      I think they need to rethink their voting rules. Texting through one phone company is un-american.

      • AdamRocks! says:

        Yeah, the voting thing is really bothering me. . . why not five or 10 votes allowed per person? I don’t think I’ll ever watch AI again. . .

        • AdamAddict says:

          If Simon won’t do A.I next year plus Adam’s fans who boycott A.I, A.I will flop for sure. No rating,no voting, no people care! LOL!!

  8. InAWEofAdam says:

    Ok, I am not going to say anything but how I feel about this!!!! If Adam reads this, I want him to know that I could not BELIEVE what happened last night. I’m sorry, Kris could sing, but he was no different than what we have currently, there are many of his kind singing in bars, Country Music, Etc….
    I had a bad feeling this was going to happen, but when the announcement was made my jaw hit the floor. I’ve heard the screaming fans of Adams, I’ve seen seen the media coverage, and I’ve witnessed this first hand since the audition. There is NO ONE who could touch him talent wise and this is unfair and it broke my heart to not see the confetti fall on the real star of the show. I for one have been a HUGE fan of his and last night when he Sung “Beth” and with KISS, Oh my god, I not only witnessed the winner but a STAR…and to top it off singing with Queen, WOW. I may have not got to see him win American Idol, but he sure won the heart of this 42 year old mother of 3…I am completely devoted to him, and I can’t wait until he shows the naysayers who the World Wide Star is…We’ll just consider American Idol his Spring Board into Broader Waters….. I love you Adam, i’m not just a Fan, I am a TRUE Fan, I am sorry that this didnt go the way we hoped but I know this is just the beginning!

    I’m going to miss seeing you each week, shewwwww, that sounds pathetic, but you have drawn me in, enamored me, seduced me and won my heart….You are MY AMERICAN IDOL!!!!

    • sandy crispell says:

      WOW…I JUST WROTE ABOUT THE SAME FEELINGS EXCEPT I AM 67…..IF ADAM SEES THIS I JUST WANNA TELL HIM THAT OLDER WOMEN ARE GREAT….HEHEHEHEHE….I COULD BE HIS ALTERNATE GRANDMA IF HE WOULD LET ME….A GREAT INJUSTICE WAS DONE THIS YOUNG MAN AND I AM ASHAMED OF ALL THOSE WHO VOTED FOR CHRIS … THOUGH HE CAN SING SOMEWHAT HE WILL NEVER CATCH UP TO ADAM..IF WE WHO CAN REMEMBER ELVIS’S BEGINNING.THE NAYSAYERS AND CHURCH GOERS TREATED HIM THE SAME WAY..MY PARENTS INCLUDED…AND LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENED TO HIM..COMPLETE ICON..I BELIEVE ADAM WILL BECOME AN ICON AS ELVIS WAS/IS…HE IS OUR NEXT BLESSING….I KNOW I AM AN OLDER GAL BUT I AM NO FOOL…I COULD GO ON AND ON…THERE JUST DOESN’T SEEM TO BE ENOUGH ROOM TO WRITE ABOUT THIS YOUNG MAN…MY PARENTS LAUGHED AND SNEERED AT ME OVER ELVIS..NOW MY CHILDREN LAUGH AT ME FOR BEING YOUNG BEYOND MY YEARS?…AND MY GRAND CHILDREN?….19 AMD 16….THEY JUST LOOK AT ME AND WONDER IF I AM EVER GONNA GROW UP..IF GROWING UP MEANS THAT I CAN’T ENJOY ADAM AND HIS LOOKS/SOUNDS/CAREER THEN I WILL PROBABLY NEVER GROW UP …WHY WOULD I??…..I WISH WE COULD WRITE TO HIM PERSONALLY SO HE KNOWS HOW WE ALL REALLY FEEL ABOUT HIM…I HEARD HIM SAY IN HIS INTERVIEW THAT HE HAS READ ALL THE EMAILS AND SIGNED ALL THE PICTURES…I WANT SOME OF THAT…DOES ANYBODY KNOW WHERE WE CAN DO THAT?….THANKS FOR LISTENING….ADAM’S ALTERNATE GRANDMA SANDY

    • mee tooo so sad…this Tuesday im going to have withdrawals. im 45 and have had a hard time focusing on mom duties with all this. he has got my brain all tied up! I even sighed up itunes am getting an ipod so I can listen more. he even worked into my dreams… geeezzz. this is nuts.

  9. InAWEofAdam says:

    Quick question, Will they release a itune with Adam singing Beth????? Please say they will…

  10. Do you think Adam feels like he was used by AI to bring in viewers and increase ratings? He was good enough for that, but not good enough to win. Thanks to all you George Bush loving right wing Christians, the biggest injustice of Idol history was handed to Adam and he took it like the man that he is. My daddy always said, if a man tells you he is a “Christian,” grab your wallet and run the other way.

    • Fandomatic says:

      I bet Adam is grateful to get this much exposure from American Idol. He certainly doesn’t need the AI engine to launch his career now! They both benefited from the contract and we got to watch Adam to the finale.

  11. Dude you WON!

  12. Adamsdelicious says:

    I am done with AI too…After watching this over & over again, I just can’t understand it!! He is 500% better than Kris & this performance truly proves it….Not to mention he is hotter than hot can be…

    I think AI allowed Kris to win in order to get more $$ out of the viewers. If he had come in 2nd, no one would have bought his album (OK, well maybe 5 people would)…

    Either way – America got it wrong & AI is no longer welcome in my house….I am proud to say I voted for the full 4 hours!!!

    Addicted 2 Adam for life!!!!!!!!

    • I agree it will be hard to watch AI again next year, but remember, guys, they always bring the previous years top stars back as guest performers! I’m already looking forward to that! Though I sure hope to see him performing before that, on a tv special or a released DVD!

  13. patton303 says:

    The fans lost it for Adam. 38 MILLION of those 100 million votes came from Arkansas.
    How are you gonna compete with that? You hardcore Adam fans should have done more.
    Kris won just like Obama did, his fans pummeled the internet and got everybody together and spread the word.

    I’ve been in the music industry for 25 years and I know enough about it in the sense that raw talent alone doesn’t make a star. I know a lot of guys and gals as good or better than Adam Lambert who will never make it.
    Raw talent is only 25% of the equation. The other 25% is presentation. The last 50% is marketing the brand. Ultimately, getting everybody on board to enjoy your product starts and ends with you the fan.
    Only fans can decide the fate of their favorite artists. They’ll be as successful as only YOU want them to be.

    In the end it doesn’t really matter if Adam won or lost. He’s still gonna be huge.
    Hell he already is.

  14. Agreed!!! Best performance of the night! Adam was in his element. We love you Adam!!!!!!!!!!
    Sorry… forgot to say great post – can’t wait to read your next one!

  15. i totally agree with adamsdelicious.. me too will no longer watch AI ever!!

    I LOVE YOU ADAM!! I’M IN AWE OF YOUR TALENT!!

  16. lambchop says:

    Seriously!?!? WTF?!?!?!

    I do not normally like KISS, but Adam made them sound good! I just hope that they have him do the full version of Beth! How sexy could this guy be?!

    He’ll out sell Kris so no need to worry!

  17. OMFG! if i was @ that finale i would have been pushing EVERYONE out of my way to get up to see KISS agaiN! I saw them in 2000(the farewell tour-rose gardenin portland oregon) adam did good until he started screaming. ugh. it ruined the song after that:) i still think adam should have won. why is everyone griping. AMERICA voted for kris…..duh:)

  18. rapidcharger says:

    Well..i would still watch this show. Because it is the avenue for us to find STARS like Adam. And pissed as we are right now (for fans of Adam), we may just get as excited when the next season come, because we care who deserves to be in our heart. In the future, Adam will be an icon of the music world. This AI season will be his best memory. So cheer up and cherish the fun and excitement the show has brought us!

  19. Haha, I loved this performance! So Great! Adam you are the true winner and you’ll prove that when you’ll outsell Kris!

    WE LOVE ADAM LAMBERT!

    Adam was the true winner because now he will have more freedom and artistic control over his career! Sometimes with AI, 2nd, 3rd or even 4th (as in Daughtry’s case) place is winning the jackpot!

    Kris was really great too, but now he’ll be forced to sing horribly hokey songs like “No Boundaries” for his album.

  22. Hey now. Kris is a good singer. Let’s not rain on him. How awkward.

  23. AdamAddict says:

    Adam was awesome singing this and those eyes WOW!!

  24. lucky1877 says:

    That performance with Kiss had me smiling from ear to ear. Adam sounded amazing and his outfit was crazy fun. Adam you are the best and you will be my Ameican idol 4-ever. XOXO

  25. Libralee says:

    I don’t need to make any comments of my own!

    Simon SPOKE for me when he refused to stand up when Kris was announced the winner! He has never done that to a winner since the beginning of American Idol!

    Thank you Simon!

  26. YOURSFOREVER says:

    ADAM you are THE WORLD-CLASS star! . When I listen ADAM I want to clime mountains We want a change! We want real singers! WE love your multidimensional persona! Those high notes remind me watching virtuoso playing, supersonic flying, ace performing… CHAMPION! Can’t wait till your first album.

  27. Did anyone notice tears in Adam’s eyes as he sang Beth? I think he was very touched by the montage of his Idol Journey. An amazing person and talent.

  28. adamlambertluver says:

    adam is already a bigger star than kris and a way better vocalist/performer. and better looking too. adam’s outfit was amazing and he looked hottt. i can’t wait for his album. I LOVE YOU ADAM!!!!!!!!

  29. nancy smith says:

    well, Im still in shock. Adam has the most beautiful voice ive ever heard. His soul and heart goes out in every song he sings. Im a 57 year old grandmother and i dont judge ppl by the way they dress. I think american idol should be only heard, to keep ppl from judging and not listening from the heart. Im another one that will be never watch AI again. The unfairness was unforgiveable.

  30. i would like to congratulate Kris and hope he has an amazing career as Adam certainly will. Kris is a great guy, but all of us, even kris fans, know who stole the show this season.
    Adam lambert is the true american idol and he will without a doubt have an amazing career. His talent is unbelievable and too good for this show, so it is only right that this show acted as the push-off block for Adams career.
    so congratulations to Kris, i wish you the best, i truly do.
    but an even bigger and more deserved congratulations to Adam, who will be an even bigger start than he already is, off the american idol show.

  31. And Queen want him too! Check out the interview where Adam pleads fifth amendment when he was asked directly if he had an offer from Queen. OMG. The music industry big guns are so backing our boy. As for the skewed voting. Amazes me that Simon Cowell openly said (after the result) that the best singer didn’t win, that Kris was like a puppy, and that it was the combined Gokey and Kris vote that won the day. He’s a judge on a talent show who admits that talent doesn’t necessarily win. I’m grateful that Idol was a launch pad for Adam, but other than that it’s nothing but a boring low-rating trivia popularity contest. And check out the fact that some Kris fans had the equipment and software to get 45000 vote per single person. One Arkansas community of 152 people put in nearly half a million votes. I’m not bitter about Kris winning, but I feel shortchanged as a voter. Basically my votes didn’t count for shit. Idol should be ashamed. Here’s hoping it really takes a nose dive after this. But as for Adam. He won everything he wanted! And it is just the beginning.

    • Redsetter says:

      My sentiments exactly — I just didn’t know what it was exactly that was disappointing me so greatly. 152 voters, 1/2 a million votes! Come on. You’re right, our votes didn’t count for shit. I couldn’t even watch Adam’s performances again until today for fear of getting VERY upset again. I wish I had his grace under fire. I’m trying to find that inner, calmer place 🙂 Now I’m going to start obssessing about what to do about Tuesday night when we won’t have his performance to anticipate. Gawd, I need to get a life after Adam!

  32. Today I wear black to show how sad I feel. America got Kris Allen and that’s fine. Adam sounded so amazing last nite. I almost cried when I heard him sing “Beth” and of course I did cry for three hours after the stupid result. I can’t wait to see him on Idol Tour.

    Dreamsound, please keep this wonderful website going and keep us posted about Adam’s every interview, TV appearance, just everything about Adam.

    Thank you so much for doing this. This is my favorite Adam fan site.

  33. Well, I am a conservative too but I love Adam. I think he lost because a lot of people couldn’t stand him “screaming”. And those Danny votes and power calling/texting from Kris’s fans are too difficult to overcome. Kris Allen is the top search on yahoo today. So, I guess a lot of people do like him. I only hope Adam fans stay fans to support Adam in the future. That will be the biggest victory for him!

  34. CatEyes says:

    I have read every single post under this thread, and most points have already been well stated. Now that I fully understand how this whole debacle played out, it is simply a crying shame for American Idol to stand there with a straight face and say, “And the winner is Kris Allen.” Really??

    American Idol, you can have Kris and all of his skewed votes. The rest of us will keep Adam, thank you very much! The show has lost credibility with me as a long time viewer.

    Kris, best of luck…you do have talent.
    Adam, you will be the “international icon.” I am so happy that you had this moment to perform with Kiss. It was totally awesome! Hope to see you on tour, and can’t wait for your new music!

  35. Howdy from a true GRITS kinda girl … Girl Raised In The South. Add to that fact that I’m a Southern Baptist! I’ve read the negative about Christians and I’m here to tell ya … I’m a Christian and I’m a proud Adam supporter!! Such an awesome, talented person. Adam was my choice from the first time I watched AI. I am so disappointed in the outcome last night … I truly feel empty inside!! I’m looking forward to Adam’s first album. Last night was nothing but a bug on Adam’s windshield!! He’s on his way and for that we can all thank American Idol. I will miss seeing him each week; however, great things are in store and I for one cannot wait!! Peace!

  36. Americans don’t know talent from their own ass!!!!!!! Adam was clearly the winner in this so-called singing competition! I am very disappointed with AI and have no desire to ever watch it again!

  37. DEAR ADAM:

    After every performance you left me Feeling Good and having Satisfaction with my life. In every song you gave me a Whole lotta love and I embraced it excitedly. After last night’s coronation I felt like Crying and truely believed I was living in a Mad World. I wiped the Track of my tears and realized, Adam you are THE One, you where Born to be wild and If I cant have you I dont want nobody baby!!!

    Yours truely,

    One of your true admirers 🙂

  38. The GLAMBERTS sent those flowers!!!!!!! WoooooooooHoooooooooooo! Ya Baby!!

  39. I am from Oz and I was shocked to see Adam Lambert Lose, but in my opinion I am glad he did in a way because he now doesnt have to realise that AWEFUL….mountains, hurricanes, putrid song!!!!
    Oh how I cringed!!! In AUstralia last year each finalist was given there own song that suited them best and what ended up happening is that for the first time every on Australian Idol the right person won!

    Seriously let Kris have this win and he will sooner rather than later fade into the oblivion, because he is mediocre at best!

    Adam as Paula stated will be a rock music legend!

  40. Adam should have won!! He was better and his vocals are off the charts, plus he is far more origional, if you want to find someone just like kris, google insinc or any other boyband. Kris had like 3 good songs while adam had atleast 10. Adam is the only reason I even watched American Idol and now that he’s gone i will never watch it again. plus i hear simon won’t be on it and he’s my fav. judge.
    btw- simon did not stand up to applaud kris when he won, just saying. *cough* because he liked adam better*cough…Adam should have one!!

  41. who else loved it when Adam goes: Ladies and Gentlemen…KISS!
    😀

  42. glambert says:

    Well, after the intial devastating mindblowing shock we all suffered due to the ridiculous outcome of
    AI last night we’re beginning to get it together at last! Yes, we now realize that at least our ADAM
    already a superstar, megastar!……..will be free to take the path HE wishes to choose and not one dictated to him. Thank God for that because he has the maturity, intelligence and incredible stage
    presence that has and will continue to blow everyone out of the water!…everywhere and that includes worldwide!!!!!! ADAM has the most inspirational and positive attitude ..nothing will stop him now! …….and of yes, forgot to mention AUSTRALIA loves ADAM like crazy!!!!!!!!!!!!

  43. It’s the format that need reviewing….looks like can’t leave the decision entirely to the voters. It’s time the judges “using some kind of voting rights” to balance up the whole process of winning and losing. E.g. like how they got Matt in when he got voted out!

    Anyway, let me say my piece about the GREAT ADAM LAMBERT whom I personally think gonna rock the whole world or rather “shock”, maybe is the appropriate word to use here. He has got such talent that is for the first time I truly believe he could and should win when I first saw him in the early rounds. AI is about finding the most talented unpolished gem, right???

    Like Simon said….”if Adam does not win, I don’t know how America vote”. True indeed. ADAM LAMBERT R.O.C.K.S…………..

  44. Pat Rae says:

    We should be boycotting the sponsors not AI….the sponsors are the ones with the clout
    Ford and Cocal Cola..and we should be emailing the presidents of these companies

  45. Redsetter says:

    Did Ziggy Stardust have a son? What a fantastic visual that one lone figure (placed here from another world?) singing beautiful melodies to us (for us). As always, such thought goes into keeping us entertained. I appreciate his dedication to his craft and the respect he pays us by successfully delighting all our senses with each performance. Pure artistry.

    Maybe our Arkansas Idol will put some glitter on his shirt? No disrespect — but no stylin’ there (or with most of the other contestants for that matter).

  46. Maybe most adam’s fans are either Verizon or/and T-mobile users…or maybe AT&T countings arent accurate… yah,let’s boycott the main sponsor!!

    • I agree. i and a looooot of my friends in NY and Ca boyctted COCA- COLA ,FORD AND changed their AT&T to WHATEVER service!!!!! ADAM WAS ROBBED!!!!! ACTUALLY, I AM GLAD HE DID NOT WIN!!!! HE WILL BE MUCH MUCH BETTER WITHOUT AI.

  47. I Love Adam Lambert. He is the A.I. Winner in my heart. I voted for him for all those hours.

    Am I upset about this? HELL YEAH

    Will I watch A.I. next year? HELL NO

    Will Adam become a superstar? YES INDEED.

    Kris will soon be forgotten. ADAM LIVES FOREVER.

    Bad call PRODUCERS. U LOST. BUH BYE

  48. Adam Lambert is the best all of 8 season American Idol…He doesn;t care about the trophy…he didn’t wnat talk about today,,talk about tomorrow…stupied american who desn’t understood about the meant of music,,,the vote to the people who they like,,but not the people who has a really great talented ,,great performance,,,brilliant voice and can sing all kinds of song….Adam Lambert is very great person,,he is never jealous with anyone..he knows what he needs to do with his future and great career..he is intelligent,,very warm heart person,,very polite with all people,,even he is very famous,,but he has a good heart person,,,now he is world idol and an international Super Star yet,,,we would like collect all of Adam Lambert’s cds and go to his concerst where he is…Good luck for Adam Lambert,,you are Brilliant…we are proud of you and love you very much with our heart…from Siska

  49. I cant stop watching this;D Even simon stood up at the end (you can see his head)

  50. AdamLamLover-Kara says:

    Even tho are over-loved adam lost, he is not giving up he rox and its a shocker he lost. but we know he is going to be much bigger than kris allen! 😀 I LOVE ADAM LAMBERT, AND U ALL SHOULD TOO. <3
    Your Adam Lover,
    Kara

  51. I am not a Christian, but I do have middle/conservative values on most things. Please don’t tarnish me with “it’s all the conservative’s fault….” You can be conservative but not far right wing intolerant. Adam should have won, no question and I voted non-stop for him every week. I was afraid he would lose because Gokey fans had no tolerance for Adam and a lot of the other contestants’ fans were also unreasonably jealous of his talent and the judges truthful comments about his abilities. If Kris had gone home instead of Danny, Adam might have received some of Kris’ fans votes. Add to that idiots like Vote for the Worst and it was almost inevitable. A lot of people who like rock don’t watch American Idol and so he although he has a very loyal fan base it was not indicative of what his actual fan base will be in the future. It is a complete shame he didn’t win, and for some reason I am most bothered because I won’t see his picture up there on all of the signs! I have really only watched AI for the last two years, and will probably watch it out of sheer curiosity next year, but I seriously doubt that they can get anyone close to the potential of Adam. And I got to see it all unfolding before my eyes. At least I can thank AI for that, and I expect Adam is grateful for the platform the show gave him after all of his hard work over the years.

  52. Adam Lambert is phenomenal! He has set the scale sooo high for the next AI. I loved the Kiss attire and performance. It was awesome!!! Cant wait to see what he does. The skies the limit for someone that has his talent! I’ll be anxiously waiting for Adams debut album.

  53. AdamAddict says:

    HOW ADAM REACHED THAT HIGH NOTE AT THE END?UNBELIEVABLE!!
    IT’S SO TOTALLY OPPOSITES HOW DANNY DID IN “DREAM ON” LOL!!
    I THINK THE WORST AND LOUDEST SCREAM THAT I EVER HAD WHEN A LIZARD WENT IN MY BLOUSE BUT STILL I CAN’T REACH THE NOTE THAT ADAM DID. AMAZING VOCAL!SUPERB!

  54. GOD ADAM DIDN’T WIN RIGHT BUT AT THIS PERFORMANCE HE WON ALREADY DEAR GOD HE SET THE STAGE ON FIRES WITH KISS … JUST AMAZIIIIIIIIIING EVERYONE WAS DANCING AND ON HIS FEET … SPEECHLESS … ADAM IS BORN TO BE SUPERSTAR AND HE WILL MAKE AMAZING CAREER CAN’T WAIT 🙂

  55. I LOVE ADAM LAMBERT!!!! WOO HOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

  56. Those pictures of Adam below the video are so awesome!!! Thank you for posting them. I love Adam so much. He is so dang talented!!!!!! I love his voice!!!!!

  57. star72adamlover says:

    hey you know what i just realized, adam WILL perform these next years on idol :] you know how everyone else does guest performances X] season 9 he will perform then season 10 so only watch the show when hes on!!!! how did i forget??? XD so looking forward to that!!!!!!

  58. frankie says:

    he is simply gorgeous to go along with his talent.hot and sexy

  59. I’m sad to see so many Christian, conservative haters who think that real talent doesn’t transcend religion or politics. I have been a totally committed Adam fan from the beginning and voted 4 hours non stop for him and I’m just as disappointed that he didn’t win as anyone. Knock off on the hate please. Your hateful comments don’t sound anything like Adam who has nothing but kind respectful words for Kris and his supporters. That is one of the qualities that I love about Adam – I wouldn’t give a whit about him if he were hateful and arrogant as some of these comments are. Yes i am a conservative Christian and will continue to support Adam as he pursues an amazing and long career. God bless him in all that he does!

  60. Bigmoney says:

    Adam not winning was the BEST thing that could have happen, he wasn’t cut out to be an American Idol…

    He’s much bigger and better then that.

    Kris Allen was awesome as well and fits the winner title perfect, and btw Adam will go on to sell the most records out of all idols, you heard it first.

  61. I am one of those 55 yr old Adam lovers!!! I would love to see him with Queen or Kiss but only to tour with them. I think he is going to be one of the world’s great icons and he needs to be given a chance!!! It is good he did not win AI – he does not have to conform to their strange rules, etc. and he is getting so much more exposure this way………..the only thing he lost was the 1 cash pay out they get……..he will make it many times over…….and all the love he is getting……….Adam YOU ROCK!!!

  62. lovadamlambert says:

    Aughhhh after all this time i still cannot believe he didnt WIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!
