Did Idol Snub Adam Lambert?

On Thursday’s Watch What Happens Live, during a game of Which One Would You Rather Do That Thing With?, host Andy Cohen asked Ryan Seacrest to choose between two American Idol contestants for various comparisons.

Watch the video to see his answer for the question “who got snubbed more – Clay Aiken or Adam Lambert?” Maybe Ryan? Really?!

Love ya!

Carol About Carol

I started writing on this site back in May 2009, not knowing what I was in for or where it would take me. I had no idea of the joy and personal satisfaction I'd find here. I never dreamed that I'd get to meet Adam, but that dream came true! The bonus of becoming such great friends with Lila and the other fans is what keeps me going. Music gets me though every day. In addition to Adam, I love Muse, Linkin Park, 80s and finding newer bands and supporting them by attending everything that's within 350 miles. With Adam, the boundaries are farther! Thanks for joining us on this ride! :)


  1. I agree with Ryan but not MAYBE…..for sure. Chris who?

    • LOL. Do you realize you doubly insulted “the guy” who beat Adam by misspelling his name! It was Kris Allen. Not Chris 🙂

      • Sorry never meant to insult him just could not remember his name

        • Don’t apologize! You expressed my sentiments exactly. I chuckled when you misspelled his name. I suffered many years of grief due to Idol snubbing Adam and not crowning his glorious head 🙂

      • I liked Kris…but talent wise….Adam rocked that entire season…and Idol was never the same after him because he was the total package…looks, performance quality and omg…that voice.

        • Do you think the show/voting was fixed? I always wondered if anyone has inside info. His loss was so unbelievable… but maybe, ironically, it gave his career an even greater boost due to the media attention and fan outrage. (Took years for my wounds to heal.) You’d think AI would know that greater association w Adam will boost ratings and revenue.

    wow Ryan didn’t hestitate for one second in answering the question. think the whole world agrees with him.

  3. I just wish that they would pick Adam because a lot of people would start watching AI again, this one for sure!

  4. That’s a no brainer. Of course Adam!

    I can’t really stand Clay Aiken….used to love him until Adam came along. I don’t know if I want to watch this video. Adam is the best thing to happen to IDOL in terms of his international status. No one has that, not even Carrie or Kelly (although Kelly is close).
