Kris Allen wins American Idol: “Are you phreaking serious?? Adam deserves this…” PLUS Backstage Stories and Reactions (UPDATED)

Everything Kris Allen said was exactly what I was saying when that big FOX 5 News camera  was taking ADAM-LAMBERT.ORG fans reactions at that moment: Are you serious, are you phreaking serious??

There is no doubt anywhere that he provided the best show and had the best vocals. KISS doesn’t show up for Idol — they showed up for Adam. Queen showed up for Adam. Most of the stars (and they were huge stars) came because of the level of talent that Adam has and what he brought to that show all season. Adam’s head is and will be held high. Even Kris doesn’t believe Kris ‘deserved’ the win. Be sure to don’t get this wrong, the unfairness wasn’t Kris’ fault:

Kris pointing at Adam saying something like ‘It should have been you!’

Deja vu from Season 2 – by LindaK  (Fan Group Leader)

Adam is the most talented, deserving contestant ever to grace the Idol stage. As I said in an earlier article, win or lose, Adam still IS the Idol and no one can convince me and his legions of fans otherwise. I know this feeling all too well; it happened in season 2 when the more talented contestant came in second place. I am not taking anything away from Kris; he is talented in his own right; but Adam is just special in so many ways and brought so much to the show that it almost seems unfair that he didn’t get the title. Maybe Idol didn’t know how to market him, or maybe the conservatives banded together to prevent a gay winner. Whatever the reason, Adam is the runner up. What a shame for the show and for not rewarding creative differences.

It is a given that he will have a long, lucrative, productive career and entertain us for many years to come. He goes down in history as the most competent runner up ever. Adam is in a league of his own, way above and beyond any others. It just seems unreal that this uniqueness and talent were not granted the ultimate reward.

And so we move on. To us, his fans, Adam is our idol and we believe in his talent wholeheartedly. We are excited to help him promote his career and achieve the iconic status that is in his future. This is only the beginning for him. He is now a household name, was the most talked about contestant ever, and we can now look forward to moving on and watching him achieve international stardom. You know he will. America got it wrong, but at this point it doesn’t really matter.

Let’s support Adam, and help him become the icon and worldwide superstar that the judges predicted he would be. And won’t it be fun going along with him on this journey. The best is yet to come!

It’s ok to be in grief and cry because we all know this was clearly rigged, not by the producers but by the voters themselves with 36 million votes coming from Arkansas and sites like Vote for The Worst. 

The producers are not happy ‘at all’ given that Adam is so commercial, so don’t blame it on the show.  

However, me must move on guys. Here is were true fans stand out.

Comment below, let it all out…

    As I was saying before, all adams fans are going to need grief counselling because we are all so bewildered and puzzled how such a travesty could have occurred.
    I am really really upset and yeah you are quite right – time to move on and follow adams career from here on out. Little point in following American Idol now, not when you can have such a farce like this.

    • Sad day for America…………..
      Great day for Adam.
      Adam got more exposure than any other Idol in history.
      Placing second is perfect, no long term commitments to AI
      He will hit the charts running,
      probably with Queen and his solo projects.

      • my thought too. he won weeks ago. his rock is great.
        he is better off now…not tied up in idol crap. i was stunned that they got kiss and queen there. that shows alot of respect for adam that they were on the show. i haven’t watched it alot because they didn’t have much music i would buy. but i could appreciate a singers talent even if not my kind of music. this vote was really obvious “favorite” vote not talent.
        check out this interview whrere kiss talks about adam after they were on.gene simmons extends an invitation to adam go on tour !

    • i am surprisingly not upset! adam always will be my superstar but i am very happy for kris and cant wait to buy adams album! lets think of the positive, that adam is not stuck under a strict idol contract and is free to make the album he wants, not including that awful winning song.
      congratulations to Kris but an even bigger and more deserved congratulations to Adam!!
      WE ALL LOVE YOU ADAM!!!
      i just can’t wait to get his album!!!

      • EVA…I will be right next to you the day ADAMS cd hits the stores. And you are right , now he’s not bound to the 1 year idol contract. WATCH OUT MAD WORLD!!!!!!

        • You know the thing that makes me sad the most is that he wanted american idol as a validation for his hard work well ADAM U DONT NEED TO QUESTION YOURSELF ANYMORE U PROVED YOURSELF FAIR ENOUGH!!!

          adam is the best of all seasons( and carrie/kelly). His performances topped the last ones and blew us all away!!! Ill hope he sticks to the glam rock although i also enjoyed his layback songs. I LOVE all of his performances seriously!!! i cant decide my fav LOL.

          I wish that he and iraheta have a MIND BLOWING SUCCESS!!! BEST WISHES 🙂

      • adamfan says:

        I thought it was really sweet how Allison went right to Adam and stayed with him throughout the ending. They have a special bond! Kris will do well, he is very deserving. But, Adam will do great because he is an awesome, awesome talent. I do believe his cds will be some of the best selling music we have seen in years!

    • I read on the internet that Chris’s hometown had logged in 38 million calls. I am not sure how true that is but if that’s the case, I am sure that’s how Chris won. I bet the entire town’s population of 12 year olds are in trouble for staying up past their bedtime!

      • AT & T CONFIRMED FROM THEIR DATA THAT 38 MILLION VOTES CAME FROM ARKANSAS. THE POPULATION OF ARKANSAS IS ABOUT 2.3 MILLION. WE KNEW THAT THEY WERE USING G IZMO AND D IAL IDOL TECHNOLOGY.
        One Arkansas church group of 152 people said they got in over 400,000 votes using the software and their texts. This is not American Idol as voted by millions, this is a few hundred thousand peopl trained in one state skewing the results (plus the Gokey fans).

        NOT A TALENT/SINGING CONTEST, THIS IS A REGIONAL VOTING AND TECHNOLOGY CONTEST. Kris admitted to one of his frierds ” Adam deserved this. I don’t like the way in which I had won “

        • devasted says:

          I will never ever watch idol again!!!!!! Never!!!!!!!

          • Evelize says:

            The result was shameful !!!
            AMERICAN IDOL – NEVER MORE – IT’S FINISHED !!!

            • Absolutely ridiculous. Idol doesnt change its voting Im done with it. Adam will do better without Idol… they were honored to have his talent this year. Look at Daughtry… I’d rather see Adam do his music than some pop album from Idol producers. Goooooooooo Adam – you’re still the American Idol – no thanks to the voting screw up

              • Melissa says:

                I agree with you. If the show doesn’t change it’s voting, then it will continue to lose true talent such as Adam, Daughtry, and more. The only seasons that seemed to get it right was the first season and the season with Carrie Underwood.

    • Apparently even though IDOL is susposed to be a ‘singing contest’ where the singer with the most talent should be awarded the title of “American Idol” – America does NOT vote this way.
      BUT – no matter what they say – FANS OF ADAM KNOW WHO IS THE BEST…..and we
      WILL SUPPORT HIM as he soars to heights beyond the imagination of all of the
      voters. GO ADAM – we are with you – all the way!!!

      • Hi: for some reason I knew Adam would not win and the reason has to do with American culture. I agree with you in regard to your remark that this is a singing talent contest; however, America clearly has issues with recognizing a true virtuoso. Today, it is hard to find a performer who can stand out so far above the average bar room musician. Give me two weekends in any major city in the US to go to night clubs and I would bet my life I could find kris Allens everywhere. I have nothing personal against the young singer but he is of average talent and these types of singers are a dime a dozen. I continue to this day to be amazed how America could be so wrong. You cannot even compare the two on talent. To stay positive i read about Adam every day and cannot wait to follow what will be a career that goes down in history. I am 52 years old and have already ordered my Adam Lambert T-shirt:). I am an old rocker and cannot wait to see what this young man will do the music world. I understand that Because Robert Plant no longer wishes to be a part of led zeppelin that Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones, and Jason Bonham have been looking for a singer to start a new band and start fresh. Page said” why get a singer to sing zeppelin songs to replace robert and therfore become our own tribute band. They want a new name and brand new music. I thought to myself: wow, I could not imagine what the band would be like with a front man such as Adam maybe even better than zeppelin?. I think Adam Lambert is a true virtuoso of the times and rank him with the best of all time.

    • i love how adam has brought us all together. this uprising of positive thought and love is exactly what adam talks about. it’s all about the future- HIS- and how we are all along for the ride of our lifetimes. so get ready, hang onto something, we are all going on a trip piloted by adam. YIPPIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

    • Chippy43 says:

      It was unthinkable that anyone else besides Adam could win this contest. His voice is totally amazing, and unlike anyone I’ve heard. Kris is a nice guy with a nice little voice – that’s what America wanted?? I don’t think so – but, that’s what it got. I’ll tell ya right now, Bill O’Reilly from Fox News didn’t help any when he had Newsweek on showing iffy pictures of Adam from his past, and questioning whether Kris the Christian or Adam the gay guy should win American’s hearts! This was 2 days before the finals. How’s that for killing a nice guy’s chances? I’ve already written to O’Reilly, not that he cares one bit! (Sooo reminds me of how Elvis started out!) Okay I’ve said my piece – on to Adam’s career. Good luck and God Bless you, Adam – and give us some great music in the years ahead. I know you will!

      • I believe that Adam’s sexuality was a factor in his not winning so I became a member of GLAAD in his honor.
        Everyone who loves Adam and believes in fairness and equality should make a donation as well.
        Adam will rock on for many years even though he didn’t win.

        • That’s a great suggestion. However, I do not think that is the reason. I think a lot of young voters could relate more to Kris then Adam. Besides, Adam would not have made it to the finales if that were the case. People still voted for him. Besides Adam has never stated he was gay and I don’t care either way.

          • Melissa says:

            The funny thing about all this is that Adam hasn’t come out yet. Why should we care about people’s sexual orientation? It is known of our business. The media and paparazzi have ruined lives and careers for their constant assumptions. You know what until he comes out and says he gay, for all I know he is straight. I know what people think he was kissing a man in a photo. Well didn’t Britney Spears kiss Madonna and Christina Aguilera kiss Madonna??? So that makes them gay too???

      • Evelize says:

        I think , now on, your career will have the same course that ELVIS’s had. At the very beginning some people did not accepted or even understood him – only open-minded ones were able to glimpse how great he was. The end of this story we know very well – he stays shinning even after his death.

        YOU ARE OVER AMERICAN IDOL, THAT IS NOT BIG ENOUGH TO CARRY YOU ON (YOU DESERVES MORE THAN THIS).

        THE WORLD ADOPTED YOU AS AN ICON NOT ONLY AS AN IDOL.

        AI was the 1st step of your BRILLIANT, WONDERFUL GREAT JOURNEY and your truthful fans will walk with you step by step, SUPPORTING AND LOVING YOU ALWAYS.

        WE WILL BE HERE FOR YOU every time you need us because WE NEED TO STAY CLOSE YOU – WE DON’T WANT MISS YOU.

        WE DON’T WANT NOBODY BABY!

      • That’s pitiful Bill O’Reilly. So damn many gay bashers – get over it, deal with it. Im a married mom of 3, grandma of 4… and I think Adam is wonderful. Such a gentleman… how many other idol contestants thanked the Band week after week. Such a polite young man and wonderful talent……who gives a crap if he’s gay. I dont.

        • AdamAdmirer says:

          I can’t stand Bill O’Reilly, so I’m not defending him, he should not have discussed the topic; however, I saw the segment and at the end, O’Reilly actually said, “if he is the best singer, than he should win.”

      • I agree with you, I have said all along Adam could be another Elvis, Like him he has his own still, is different from anyone else out there and is so charismatic. I live in Scotland and always watch American Idol and there has never been anyone on before like Adam. I am a gran of 65 and I thionk Adam rocks. I have no doubt Adam will have a great career and I will be first in the queue to buy his CD. I have recorded all his songs on idol and have them on CD. Although I am a great Elvis fan my other love is rock, I love Kiss, Motley Crew, etc.

        • I’m also a 72 year old grandma and I love Adam and so do all my friends. He is a complete entertainer and can sing anything. I’d go to Vegas and watch his show and never get bored and can hardly wait for his CD. I also believe that Idol should change their voting procedure, it is not fair that 2 million people from Ark can account for 38 million votes.

    • KRISTEN LOVES YOU ADAM.! says:

      omg.! adam so deserved it.! i love that guy soo much.! and his hair is amazing.! you are amazing.! i am so buying your album when it comes out.! i love u.! <3!

    • I’m so glad to know that I’m not the only one who thinks this a travesty!!!! This site has helped me to feel better. I agree with all the postings. American Idol gave Adam the stage to be discovered, his success will be huge!!! Let’s just be thankful that we are aware and can support/enjoy him now!!

    • I would take it graciously if the Arkansas people did not cheat with the results. I knew it when they announce the winner, it has to be something rigged.
      Truly if Kris only live in the town of 40 to 50 thousands population how can he produced a 38 millions votes alone…the entire State population in Arkansas is 2.8 million.

      That’s right Kris shouldn’t take the title he should keep asking himself how the hell the Arkansas pull it off .. That’s why Ryan Sycrest ask that questions and even Jay Leno.

      So it turn out that Adam is the Clear winner. I’m sorry but hard to take it for now when all the specuatlations is all BS about danny gookeys fans voted for Kris and the Christian voted for him. Get real, the religious doesn’t get involved in voting reality show. The mayor of Conway town even proud to say that the produced 38 millions votes, hello … if u live in Conway the population is between 40 to 50 thousands you should question yourself how the HELL we got that many votes?? The entire states is only 2.8 million??? The mayor should be shocked and wondered the resutls. He should at least say it must be a mistakes that can’t be. 2.8 compare to 38?? I guess the Arkansas think America is that Stupid that we will not wonder. Kriss is not that popular and everyone knows it.
      Adam lose not becuase of the judges favorite and a front runner all along.. he should be since he is the only one that step up with the performance every week. Adam gave a tremendeous peformance the whole season alone, plus his incredible voice. How can he be the Favorite among the Contestant by the viewers all over America.

      Look at the officials site of Kris and Adam it’s Late at nite 3am WEstCoast time still has 215 fans online… and Kris..40 fans online. Evern earlier time that counts from Kris fansite barely made 50 fans online. Adam was around 716 earlier. I was wondering where are those 38 millons voted for Kris. I think Kris official fansite should be overloaded huh?… I verified it 3x that is not 40 million but there is on one zero —- > 40 Wow that is HUGE LOL.

      The maybe invisible online that’s why we can’t see the 38 millions fans of Kris from Arkansas…hahahaha

      • As someone who previously attended Danny Gokey’s church I can tell you that Danny’s votes did go to Kris. I am still in contact with several of them and they most definitely transferred their votes to Kris. They started things like the “Anybody but Adam” club and other things like that on Facebook. Christians definitely do watch American Idol and definitely do vote! I however do not agree with voting for someone simply because they are a Christian. Adam was clearly the best talent by a MILE!! and should have won but because so many people wanted to take “revenge” on Adam for ousting Danny they voted for Kris instead–and for the record, I do not believe that Adam stole anything from Danny. I tried to reason with them that Kris was the one who stole the finals from Danny but alas, they will not listen to sound reason. I have lost several friends on Facebook because of my outspoken stance against voting for Kris simply because Danny got booted. At any rate, it is sad to me that anyone–Christian or not–would deny Adam the title for any reason. He is a superstar and will go far in his career. Rock on Adam…you are definitely loved!

        • I Don't Think So says:

          Nice try. Danny’s fans turned because they are intolerant of anyone who is different than them. It’s groups like that that are making me seriously rethink my religious views. If being ‘Christian’ means that I will be associated with intolerance, hatred, and bigotry that was clearly showcased here in this situation, then I don’t want any part of it.

          • Not all Christians are like that. Don’t do the same thing they are doing by lumping all Christians in a box because of your experience with some of them. There are always exceptions to the rule. I was an Adam fan from day one and he deserved to be the next American Idol because he has wicked talent. What he believes or how he chooses to live his life is no one’s business but his own and shouldn’t have had any factor in whether he won a SINGING competition or not.

            • Let me also say for the record that the way many Christians handled American Idol was wrong. We are not supposed to be alienating people who believe differently…if someone is a real Christian then they would know that Jesus loved to be around the people that were outcasts of society in His time. If Jesus loved people who were different then how much more should Christians follow in His footsteps. You are correct that intolerance and hatred and bigotry are NOT the way Jesus wants His followers to treat people. I am sorry that you have had such bad experiences with Christians and I hope that you can work it out within yourself. Don’t give up on your beliefs simply because a group of people are too ignorant to even know what they are following. American Idol has nothing to do with who is a Christian and who isn’t…it’s a SINGING competition!!

        • AdamAdmirer says:

          I don’t believe it’s fair to say all Christians voted for Kris, I am Christian and I voted for Adam for 4 hours, and weeks prior to that too. I believe that the type of person that was watching and loving Adam were not voters, per se. Most of the ones I know are the older crowd, who are too cool to vote for a TV show contestant.
          Let’s not forget, all the greats that have had a rough time of it getting into the biz, namely Frank Sinatra, the greatest singer of all time. Someone else mention Elvis too. Adam will be great and we will enjoy his singing for a long time to come.

          I think Kris should do an AT&T ad campaign, that’s where he belongs:

          Kris Allen, the AT&T Poster Boy.

    • This site is wonderful and I know 100% for Adam, but let’s honor him by avoiding talking about the rude and recurring theme that it seems everyone else wants to focus on — his sexuality. He is just plain sexy. What he feels inside should not be a topic. It shouldn’t ever have been, and it’s really old now and distracting. It’s like asking a married couple if the woman swallows. It’s intrusive and no one’s business. Even though he handles himself quite well, it’s so unfair that he has to be polite when the questions are so impolite.

    • Ha! Ha! Ha! Even Kris could not believe he won! I may watch American Idol form time to time but when I saw Adam sing that “Satisfaction” song, I followed and watched every episode of it for the first time. But after being able to witness the results, I do not think I may ever watch American idol again! Their system is very dubious!! It is like you had a traumatic incident in your life that you definitely want to forget! Let us boycot American Idol and continue to support Our idol Adam Lambert who clearly got robbed!!!

    • 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. As I said before, Kris will end up to have this TAYLOR HICKS card!

    DREAMSOUND, please we need to campaign for ADAM’S single to skyrocket the charts. Even if NO BOUNDARIES is cheesy, let’s prove that he is indeed the superstar.

    I have had enough of sadness. As you said, MOVE FORWARD. So, I am appealing for your site and our ADAMANIACS out there to download as many songs especially putting ADAM at NUMBER 1 on the HOT 100 BILLBOARD CHART. By that, we have already redeemed ourselves. But this does not mean the end.

    All of us should commit to support him wherever we are by buying his albums and attending his concerts–FOREVER AND EVER.

    GOD BLESS YOU, DS, and thank you for the wonderful time you give us and this SITE.

    ADAMANIACS, ADAM LAMBERT IS OUR WORLD IDOL!!!! HURRAH AND HOORAY!!!!

    • adamsgpfan says:

      I totally agree that our post-AI actions are more important now in order to elevate Adam’s singing career to a new level. To us, Adam is already a winner. In fact, I think he is better off not winning the title in exchange for greater flexibility and better things to come. His international appeal will make him more superior than others in many ways. I can’t wait to buy his music albums and would like to watch his live performances somewhere in the near future.

      The result showed that the majority of the audiences are super typical and the future American Idols will be the same kind more or less. Strange to say that my intuition few months back was accurate when I first saw Kris Allen in top 36. I had the feeling that he would win American Idol title. I guess it’s his look.

      Finally, I want to thank Dreamsound and the team behind all this for everything and the site is wonderful! Great effort in organizing the voting exercise too : )

      Let’s keep in touch and continue our strong support for Lord Adam!!!

      • I ALSO FELT THAT! WHEN I SAW KRIS IT WAS LIKE, “HE IS CUTE.” BUT ADAM ALREADY WENT TO MY SYSTEM FIRST SINCE BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY AND THE HOLLYWOOD WEEK!

        I ALREADY KNEW THAT HE WILL BE ELEVATING! BUT NEVER EXPECTED (WELL THE VOTERS DID) HE WILL DEFEAT OUR WORLD IDOL!!

        HE IS MY BROTHER IN CHRIST, SO I AM HAPPY FOR HIM. BUT NOTHING WILL CHANGE. MAYBE SEEING HIM IN PERSON WOULD BE NICE AND CONGRATULATE HIM. BUT ADAM IS THE TRUE IDOL BECAUSE OF TALENT AND MANY MORE THAT MY BROTHER KRIS UNFORTUNATELY LACKS. BUT I ALSO FELT THAT HE WAS A CONTENDER.

        • Hi! u know Ive got to admit I didnt like adam at all at the audition and group performances cause dumb me judged by the cover and believe that he was like only the charming guy and no talent but HE PROVED ME WRONG jaja since satisfaction I ate my words and became a true fan.

    • Eve Mayer says:

      (MY FINAL MESSAGE TO ALL KRIS’S VOTERS WHO FAILED ADAM LAMBERT )

      Alright, Knock it off! You enjoy the manipulative power on your hand for AI show ? Just spit it out, blog in your complaints to the judges.

      Don’t hit on the wrong man.

      How could anyone ever turn down the most sweetest, innocent guy like Adam Lambert ?? Well, I guess ONLY THE HEARTLESS ONE !!!

      First, Adam isn’t catnip as some of you think, he’s been through a lot, worked for money at young age and not as lucky as Kris, obviously.

      Second, Adam Cocky? That was the most ridiculous, outrageous comment I have ever heard!!!

      You can hate Adam for his sexual orientation,
      You can hate Adam for his black nail-colored,
      You can hate Adam for screaming more than singing,
      whatsoever,
      But being cocky??? OMG, do you seriously think a cocky contestant will applaud his two rivals during Top 3 show? I still remember his quote
      when judges applauded him after his rendition of One by U2 – “Thanks, but Danny and Kris did great too, I heard it from backstage…” while
      pointing at backstage.
      Gosh, everyone, I’m so confused now, pls help me to define what is C.O.C.K.Y means? I guess someone must go back to check her dictionary
      (right? latinadancer??)

      Please DO NOT TOSS any fallacious comments on that poor innocent guy. He is the most HUMBLE, INNOCENT, HARDWORKING, TALENTED
      IDOL I have ever seen. First time when I saw him, I knew my search is over for an ultimate idol. He is the one. My only one.

      Third, he could sing Country Song even better than, I mean far more better than Kris. Just listen to the track, (Track for My Tears) I’m a
      Rockmaniacs, but his voice in this one has attracted me and makes me listen carefully what he wanna to express….
      I have a friend who hates music, but Adam has changed her.

      You see. Miracles does happen when Adam is around. None of you can deny it!!

      YEAH, I AGREE YOU WON THE ‘POWER OF VOTE’ IN AMERICAN IDOL SHOW, BUT YOU HAVE LOST YOUR SOUL IN RETURN!!!!!!!
      CONGRATULATIONS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Casey & Eve Mayer

      • Karen Sanders says:

        I agree with the ” are you freaking serious”. Simon looked pissed last night. Adam will be just fine though. He’s going to be a superstar.

      • AdamAddict says:

        Some people are born to be idiots so don’t be heartless. Just forgive those idiots! LOL!!

      • i would have to agree with you man…most people are being incredibly ignorant about our Idol. No matter what happened, i had a thought that told me that kris was going to win because of all those little girls and the cell phones…not to mention quite a few Gokey fans went towards kris…probably because since Adam was Gokey’s ‘archenemy’…they probably voted for kris instead, so they don’t feel like they betrayed Gokey…i know a few people who did this…i whacked them upside the head when i found this out…

      • I agree with everything that you said. You could tell that Kris himself thought that Adam was better than he. Also I agree that Adam was the kindest, nicest person on AI this year. It is also a shame that Arkansas went to such lengths to elect someone who really can’t sing. I never thought he could. Adam was the only thing worth tuning in for. Adam is in for some really great things to happen in his life.

      • Evelize says:

        BRAVO ! BRAVO ! BRAVO!

        You totally and unquestionable right. I agree with every word you say.
        THE WORLD IS CHAGED AFTER ADAM !!!
        HE IS ALREADY A WORLD ICON !!!

      • JustJoey says:

        Those who voted for Kris aren’t his real fans anyway. They voted for Kris because he was ‘lesser of the two evil’, especially for fans of Gokey. They were voting against Adam and so Kris was the easiest target.

        Cocky? I am not even gonna entertain that idea. I’m too COCKY to be talking about Adam being cocky. WTF!!!!!

        Kris may have won the votes, but Adam has won the hearts of REAL PEOPLE WHO AREN’T TONE DEAF, REAL PEOPLE WHO AREN’T AFRAID TO BE THEMSELVES, REAL PEOPLE WHO CAN TELL THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SCREAMING AND SINGING, REAL PEOPLE WHO IDENTIFY REAL TALENT FROM MILES APART!

        Even Simon Cowell looked pissed. But you know what, let Kris walk away with the grand prize of ‘No Boundaries’ song as his first single. Poor guy…

        And Adam can go ahead and make his own singles and album and recordings and whatever with whoever he wants to.

        As far as I’m concerned, Adam isn’t an idol. ADAM IS LEGEND!!!!!

      • I totally agree with you! I know a lot of Danny Gokey’s relatives and friends–I used to attend the same church–and they have said over and over how cocky Adam was and I couldn’t believe it! Adam was sincere and thankful even when the judges said things he didn’t like. He didn’t argue with them when they criticized him–which was hardly ever :)– but listened and THANKED THEM! He is an extrememly humble and deserving person. He has worked hard and he even helped the competition out with their songs!! How can that be called cocky??!! Not to mention Adam gave props to the other contestants and he NEVER talked back to the judges. I can’t tell you how many times Danny and Kris made comments to the judges about how they know they sounded good. Adam is a humble person who I don’t believe will ever be cocky about his talent. He is the true American Idol!

    • I totally agree! Thanks for the ride and your wealth of information you have provided during this entire thing! When I wanted to know what was going on, this was my FIRST and ONLY stop for everything, especially the pictures . . . .Very informative and up to date! Dreamsound rocks! Keep up the good work with everything and keeping us posted! I will DEFINITELY be purchasing Adams album once it’s released and will continue to support him!! He was robbed but he gave it his best shot! Way to go Adam . . . . Always a fan and supporter!!

  3. Exactly “Are you phreaking serious??” Good on Kris but Adam totally deserved it. Adam is still a winner.

  4. I totally agree. Adam truly deserved to w
    in but he didn”t need the.win to prove he was hands downthemost amazing talent Idol has ever seen. He received the exposure he needed and now the worldknows who the real megastar is!
    I will ALWAYS be a fan!!!

  5. 4 hrs after the show and I am still upset and cannot focus on my work….. This is the biggest upset in A.I history. All the best to Adam and will definately buy your first CD. Lots of Love

    • adamsgpfan says:

      Bring don’t buy Adam’s first CD only..buy all his CDs!!! hee….

      • JapanLovesAdam says:

        I will buy his all CD as long as I live and pass on his legacy for generations to come.

      • AdamAddict says:

        I get my money ready now.
        “A dozen of Adam Lambert CD please!” Just in case it got broken after play it too many times. I got spare because I probably can’t buy it after a week released. SOLD OUT!

        • You are sooo right!!! I will buy several his first CD.

          • Melissa says:

            I always buy several copies of BSB albums because I have been a fan since 98 and will always be one, and the same with Adam, I will buy several copies of the same album because I will wear it out. LOL.

  6. adamsuperstar says:

    yeah go Adam!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it really doesn’t matter who wins this thing cuz Adam is a superstar already. he’ll definitely go far. you rocks Adam!!!!!!!!!

  7. GLambertSG says:

    I like Kris well enough but… Adam was robbed!!!!!! Wtf was America thinking, if they were thinking at all?!!!

    My only consolation is that Adam seems to take it well… I couldn’t… Then again, Adam is a class act. He’s a star in his own right.

    So what if mainstream America couldn’t handle the hotness that is Adam. When he produces his breakthrough album, I am hoping for the uniqueness that is him be reflected in his music. ‘Ring of Fire’ was awesome wasn’t it? 😉

    Adam FTW (For the World!)

  8. Leticia says:

    Adam will always be my idol and he is already a superstar in my opinion. I have got over my grief now cos Adam does not need to win American Idol to prove that he is a megastar! All of us will be supporting his music. One thing good that came out of this – Adam will not be forced to sing that horrible song that Kara co-wrote for the finale cos I cant imagine Adam’s fans wanting to buy that even though Adam sang it well! Let’s look ahead and celebrate Adam’s bright future!

  9. michelle says:

    Well done to both guys, Kris and Adam worked hard to get to the finale. Kris seems like a nice person so let’s not take our frustrations out on him, American Idol is at fault here, the voting system is ridiculous. We never actually know the voting break down and there is no independant body verifing that they are correct. Also why don’t they just make it one vote per person; isn’t this a more accurate indication of who is the prefered contestant. Personally I am done with American Idol; how is it possible that Adam lost…..he sold more ITunes and every pole him in the lead.
    This is a sad day for the USA, I had hoped that they had come further, instead Adam’s talent was overwhelmed by pastors, media and hillbillies bashing him because of his sexual preferences.
    On a different note……..at least Adam does not have to sing Kara’s song……..horrible………
    And Adam is going to be the real star………..I am looking forward to his future career.

    • musbejokin says:

      pastors, media, and hillbillies???? Puhleeeeeze!

    • AdamAddict says:

      Kris does seems a nice person and I do not hate him at all. I hate those who said “Yeah,Chris won,he deserves this,I voted him bla bla bla!” They don’t like Kris and for sure not Kris fans because if they do they will know how to spell Kris name.
      They voted “Chris” because don’t want to see our darling win the title.If people ask me who win A.I season 8,I’ll answer “It’s THE Adam Lambert”

    • GlamGirlLee says:

      Well said. I feel the same way. Kris seems like a really nice person. I don’t want to take anything away from his win even though I am really sad that my 20,000+ votes (mostly text votes) didn’t help get Adam to the title he seemed to want. I don’t think voting was rigged. The whole voting system left a lot to be desired but we all played within its rules while we were rooting for our guy. It is over. It is totally possible for one person to text vote thousands of times a night. Judging from the 20,000 that turned up at Kris’ homecoming and knowing how easy it is to text vote thousands of times, the reputed 38 million vote count from Arkansas doesn’t sound wrong to me. Assuming the majority of those votes went to Kris (probably, but did ATnT say that?), If Arkansas voted all for Kris they had every right to do so. Too bad, Californians weren’t all like me or some of you and voted with the same zeal or even liked Adam’s style…

      I am dying, DYING to know what he does next. And, I am glad Adam is not stuck with the garbage that the redundant “judge” calls a song. Adam said in one of his interviews that winning American Idol will validate everything he has worked for all his life. In my opinion, and I am sure many share this opinion, he already got the validation. Way early in the competition and now by the fact he went all the way to the finals. He is not easy listening for sure. He is a freaking AWESOME listening. Go Adam, we will be watching your career closely and rooting for you ALL the way! I was willing to buy a modem to DialIdol for you. I was willing to buy a GoPhone just to vote for you without expecting to ever come in personal contact with you because I LOVE your music and what you inspire in people. Keep true to yourself. -Love from Oakland, CA.

      • GlamGirlLee says:

        Oh, and I LOVE your boots, too. And the trench coast. And the metalic(?) pants, leather jackets, and so on. I am so jealous of his AI stylist who got to go shopping with him every week. I hope some designer comes out with lady’s versions of those. Heh.

  10. totally agree…kris?seriously?

  11. LambBrit says:

    Hi Everyone,
    I guess a lot of Americans weren’t ready for that change that should have come : (
    But the positives are that :
    1. He doesn’t have to sing No boundries.
    2, He won’t be tied in his contract for so long.
    3. Will probably get even more press attention from not winning.
    4. Will be the cool rebel who lost not the clean American boy …Much more Rock’n’Roll!
    I actually feel sorry for Kris, He seems a nice bloke & Adam & him seem genuine friends, He knows (& said) he didn’t deserve to beat Adam, that can’t be a great feeling when you have been voted for for what you represent & not your talent.
    In every interview he will have to do he will be asked about Adam, & on the AI tour Adam will still be the star, not him.
    I think all the christian voters have actually done a very unchristian thing putting Kris in this situation.
    Anyhoo, we all know that Adam will be back next year as a star guest on AI with the worlds biggest selling album ever.
    I truly believe Adam will be as big as Elvis (who also died his hair black : ) ) He is the most incredible talent with a voice that can rock your world or break your heart & make you cry, I’ve never known a singer who can convey such genuine emotion. He’s sooo Charismatic, an amazing performer, heart stoppingly sexy, beautiful, confident, kind, funny, goofy, He is just the total package of a superstar.
    I’m so excited to be around to be able watch his journey.
    Thanks so much for everyones hard work on this site, for the live streaming, even though it meant I couldn’t sleep after (3am over here) as I felt too sad! & for the advice on Gizmo. Please keep up the hard work, I just don’t know what I’m going to do with my weekly Adamfix.

    For all those voters who voted for Kris for the wrong reasons remember … God created Adam in his own form…

    & it was gorgeous!!!!

    • Lamberkitten says:

      Thanks for that, a great post!!! Still sad that Adam didn’t get his victory but he don’t look too upset – still he is a great actor and must be hard to think that you are not accepted by the total majority. I hope he knows how loved he is by millions in the US and worldwide – I am from the UK, me and my neice are gutted. But we will support him always.

      • LambBrit says:

        Thanks Lamberkitten,
        All the “Glambrits/Lambrits” should keep in touch for when Adam tours the U.K! : )

        • Guys ok he deserved to win it based on talent. BUT omg that single would have been a disaster. That is not who he is. While I really wanted him to win, and I know he and we are disappointed, I truly believe that this is the best thing for him. Now he has the freedom to really choose for himself what kind of song his first single is. Now he can continue to be true to himself. I think that in the long run is much more important than winning that contest. Adam will be a megastar. He lost a talent show – so did Elvis. This isnt a talent show at the end its a popularity contest and Adam’s persona, his daring song choices and arrangements, his private life were too out there for middle America to dare to crown. In the end, I dont think it matters. He will loom large on our awarenesses long after Kris and the rest of the contestants have faded to a dim memory.

          • AdamAddict says:

            I love the idea Adam Lambert is a guest in A.I season 9 with the worlds biggest selling album! Awesome! We can help him to make it happen. Love it but I hope Adam will make album like he wants too. Variety songs because he so versatiles.

            I remembered reading somewhere,he said something like “I give something that the audience want to hear and also something that the audience don’t even know they want to hear” Probably he meant something like “Ring Of Fire” perhaps? I love how he sang that song!Brilliant!

            • GlamGirlLee says:

              Yes, he is a class act. And it totally was true in my case when he sang “Ring of Fire”. I fell into my own ring of fire known as Adam The Awesome.

        • iloveadamlambertandthatstrueblueweloveyou! says:

          im a HUGE FAN from the U.K!!!!!!!!! yeahhh cant wait for his tour!!
          kris is the most undeserving idol winner EVER.
          although i have to say i think it may have done adam a favour not to have won, as yes A) he doesnt have to sing that god awful ‘song’ and B) he isnt stuck under the contract for so long!
          plus the fact that he will EASILY outsell kris 😀 😀 😀

          well, winner or REAL WINNER i know whose albums i will be buying and whoes shows i will be attending!!!!!!!!! 😉

          x x x x x WOOH go brits lol!! haha i honestly think that if as simon said “they were looking for a worldwide star” and he says that he thinks they found iit in adam……..why the hell didnt they let the lines be open to the rest of the WORLD?????!!!!! not just america which is most likely too scared of the change that adam would bring to their country. – well too bad thyre getting it anyways…..this guy is gonna change the world…..and he wont be Elvis II he will be Adam Lambert.

    • lambchop says:

      Amen!

    • I couldn’t agree more and on all accounts! Adam is a gracious and genuine soul as well and I believe he was/is truly happy for his new friend. In a way Adam has dodged a bullet really…here’s looking forward to seeing what he does next!!!!!! The label of American Idol doesn’t really suit our Adam anyway…I’m shooting for something more like “LEGEND”!!!

      We love you Adam and thank goodness you won’t have to have that terrible song on your CD (smile)

    • HugsForAdam says:

      I’m christian and by God I voted for Adam so many times my fingers were hurting! Lol well Adam deserved to win, but, just as you said, there are reasons that are good for why he didnt win

    • I really cannot believe America got it wrong, can people not realize that American Idol is a search for someone who really has “IT”, the one who has the ability to sing, not just one who can sing, one who truly has that amazing vocals, who can sing anything.

      I am disappointed with the results and so with all my friends here in UK. Quite disappointed that lots of people voted for Kris for the wrong reasons. We watched and anticipated that Adam will get that accolade but…

      I hope America will realize by doing that, voting for the wrong reasons, they are trying to discredit the show, hope it will not happen again coz it is such an amazing show and it is not fair to the like of Adam who not only works hard but who truly is the ACE of the competition, Adam is the best by par.
      To me he is the American Idol, from season 1-9. No matter what, you cannot put the good man down.

    • Melissa says:

      I agree. I am a Christian and ashamed of how people judged him. Love the sinner hate the sin, but like I said before HE HASN’T come out so the speculation has got to stop. For example, Prince is very feminine, but he is far from being gay. See my point?

  12. Marilyn says:

    I was in total disbelief when I watched AI today! The evangelistic/middle America just couldn’t allow a real talent win because of his sexual orientation. What is wrong with you America? Everything has become a political and religion issue in America. The world is flabbergasted with your decision and this time, the joke is on you, America. I will stay true to Adam’s career and look forward to his first album.

    • Sun&Stars says:

      I am responding to your statements and to cherrylynn4 regarding “religious” and “evangelistic/middle” America being against Adam. I am a devout Christian and a “middle American” and so are many of my friends and family. We voted each week consistently for Adam. The week that he was in the bottom three, we spent the whole time calling in for him, each of us a mere 100 times. It was a travesty to see him in the bottom three. Please do not group all “Christians” as hypocritical, hateful or discriminatory. There are those of us who do not pass judgment on everyone that we meet; that is for our Lord and Savior to do. We love Adam for his talent, his charisma, his humbleness, his hard work, his rapport with the other contestants and his fans and his artistry. We will be supporting him and buying his cd’s. We would truly likve to see him in concert on the East Coast – specifically in Virginia. Again, please do not be so quick to pass judgment.

      • Fandomatic says:

        I couldn’t have said it better myself. Don’t buy into AI’s message that this contest is about differences. It’s never been about anything but selling cars and go phones. It’s ironic that at the center of this whirl is Adam with his message of tolerance. That’s the message I want to hear.

      • Im a Christian too and i didnt voted for Kris!! so dont judge us because others voted for kris to.

        • The true Christians will not vote against Adam because of his lifestyle. They believe in the old saying, “love the sinner, but hate the sin”. Several Christians that work around me wer shocked that Adam did not win.

          • I don’t think these people in here refer to ALL Christians voting against Adam. Yes. Some so-called true Christians are fair enough to recognize Adam’s talent and not criticize Adam’s lifestyle. The fact though remains that the MAJORITY of the conservative Christians did vote for Kris out of spite, bigotry, or lack of acceptance for Adam’s extroverted and flashy performance. Overall, Adam lost due to a combination of reasons, as it is always the case. You can blame it on the anti-Adam votes from Danny’s fans, people getting turned off from the producers’ and judges’ pimping of Adam early on in the season, Adam’s “screeching” (to me it is not), over the top theatrics (again to me it is not), the tweens who are voting for Kris because of the “cute” factor, Kris’ overzealous and faithful Arkansas hometown, or the fact that some people just do prefer Kris’ voice and singing style. Although I don’t like mainstream music due to its bland, boring, and stereotypical songs (as I have not listened to the radio anymore for the past decade), Kris’ style is in fact what mainstream music is about and that is why he is popular. There are a lot of folk pop singers like Kris, such as Dave Matthews, Jason Mraz, and John Mayer. Unfortunately, it is this kind of musicians that are popular nowadays and will have the most airtime on the radio. However, there is only one Adam and I hope that he will succeed and break out of that mold. He represents change, originality, and versatility. Whether you like him or not, you have to admit that he does have talent.

      • I Don't Think So says:

        I am from Virginia too–it is hard sometimes to not generalize, I’m sure you can appreciate that. It sounds like you are as bothered as I am that there are some people in this world who do act hateful all supposedly in the name of ‘Christianity’ and ‘The Church’. I thought I was the only one who felt that way.

      • Melissa says:

        Amen! I am a Christian also, and all Christians are not that way. If you go to Adam’s official website you will see so many Christians have apologized for the actions of other Christians.

  13. I started watching the video above and had to stop it; too depressing. I just want to think positive and look forward to a dazzling future for Adam.

    Adam is the GRRRREATEST!!! What a star and so gracious as the runner-up to Kris for winning the Idol.

    Kris may be the Idol but ADAM IS “THE CHAMPION”! Adam, you rock. Please, come to Edmonton, Canada when you’re on tour.

    Adam’s reaction should be an example to us all – with a big smile on his face: “It felt so good. I got to sing with Queen and with Kiss. I mean, first or second it doesn’t matter to me I got to sing with two great heroic rock bands.” I bet Queen makes him an offer as they need a singer. What a fabulous human being. I love him even more.

  14. I could-NOT believe my ears, eventho I knew all the rumors about the “religious” cons./right…etc. It is so hard for me to accept how religion of hypocrites emersed themselves to deny a unbelievable talent, like Adam, a “singing” contest b/c of religious bigotry! It is shameful. I’m embarrassed that this country is still filled w/such hateful people! Reminds me of the 50’s & 60’s when, as a country, we were faced w/this same kind of hatefulness and discrimination! ADAM LAMBERT WON THIS CONTEST. NO ONE W/EARS & EYES CAN DENY THAT FACT. Re-watching it over a few times, finally brought me to tears!! I am just NOT that emotional, as a rule. But, Adam’s talent and humanity is so great that I just couldn’t stand the thought of him being hurt and rejected he surely feels. Maybe my sensitivity is sstrong, but I do not apologize for it. When I hear the word “religion”, now, red flags go up-way-up! Some “christians” gave religion a black-eye by rallying against a “singer” who has done nothing to hurt them……SHAMEFUL….SIMPLY SHAMEFUL.

    • I’m with you cherrylynn4. You are expressing exactly what I’m feeling. This was a huge “religion” turn-off for me. A huge black-eye. It’s so embarassing, I’m sick to my stomach.

      • Melissa says:

        Once again ALL Christians aren’t like that. You both should understand that there are some bad apples that spoil the whole bunch.

  15. Jaye aka Milwadamfan says:

    I was afraid this would happen – I was hoping against hope that it wouldn’t – but Adam had too many things against him. I actually feel sorry for Kris, who will have to live his entire life knowing Adam was the one truly deserving of the title. I have my theories as to what happened, and I think it was a combination of things. But none of that matters now. All that’s important now is that we continue to support Adam any way we can.

    He is a phenomenal talent, with amazing vocal skills, performance skills, artistry, looks, and the ability to charm us. The one thing I’m really, really glad about is that Adam never compromised who he is in order to conform to the idol image of the many who feel threatened by anything or anyone “different.” Thank you Adam for being who you are, and I’m proud to call myself one of your fans. You’re a gentleman and a class act in every possible way, and we could all learn something from the way you handle yourself. You poured your heart and soul into this season, and you deserve every bit of support we can give you. OK, I’m crying again when I swore I wouldn’t.

    The finale show performances with KISS and Queen were the best, and I will never forget those memorable moments, nor the many, many other memorable moments you gave us throughout the entire season. THANK YOU ADAM FOR THE BEST SEASON OF AMERICAN IDOL EVER!

  16. I can’t wait till his original songs are available, I plain to be one of the first to have all the latest music. Adam belonged on stage with Queen and Kiss. I am still wondering what his band will be like…..mmm. I will have to get concert tickets for them when they tour. It not often, one has a change to support a great singer and stage presents from the beginning!!
    Great singing and attitude, Adam, you are a true star!

    This is why I have not be watching american idol, the best does not win. I think Kris will be a good singer, but Idol had the chance to have the marketability matching Carri Underwood,or Kiss but settled for the J-12 age group.

    BTW no capital in american idol, they are losing fans again and well getting boring again without Adam. Good luck a.i.

  17. I must admit I was kinda shocked that Adam didn’t win. I mean, he is/was truly the BEST contestant ever in such a show, worldwide!! He was the one who’d have truly deserved to win. But in the end it’s not about who is better but rather about whose fans have more luck in voting (sadly). Even though I was sad that Adam didn’t win, I now almost believe that it’s better for him like that, coz he can now chose himself which songs he wants so sing and bring out as single/album. Didn’t like the winner title too much anyway. It’s rather made for a nice but boring kinda man like Kris. 😉 So there you go…future will proof who’s got more talent and rwho eally has got more and especially loyal fans. In that case I’m pretty sure Adam will be the real winner! =)

  18. LambBrit says:

    p.s I found this yesterday…. Glad Simon showed his true feelings by not giving a standing O at the end!

    http://mjsbigblog.com/?p=7336&cp=2

  19. i cant wait for his album to be release… hopefully hell be bigger than kris.. for sure adam will soon rock the charts and his albul will sell like pancakes.. i can now imagine adam receiving so many industry awards.. performing in a sold out arena.. hopefully hjis first single would be as hot as ring of fire and his first video were just like britney spears im a slave for you…

  20. adam's_fan_from_finland says:

    I cant believe this !
    I watched AI at 4am (finland’s time zone) and when i saw Kris’s victory i was so sad. Kris is good singer but Adam is the best singer entire world !!
    Maybe Kris is America’s Idol, but Adam is the whole world’s Idol.
    Thanks Adam, i love u.

  21. How can that happen, we all know who is the real superstar, Adam proved over and over again in all his performance, I have never seen before such a contestant on America Idol with such talent, such charisma, someone who mesmorized the audience and kept them glued to the screen. We all know why Kris won, although he is also a talented guy, deep down in his heart he knows that his talent is nowhere near Adam’s superior talent. Adam is the winner, he is adored by people all over the world, I am in the UK and watch both Truesday and Wednesday night streaming live on my PC, this is how much I love Adam, I love his voice, I love who he is, I love his music, I cannot wait to buy his first single of album, I hope he makes a recording of We are the champions, his performance on that is phenomenal, Adam you are our world Idol, I hope that one day soon you will come to London, I cannot wait to see you perform live.

  22. i already move on for sure adam would have brighter career…

  23. Kris Allen needs to know he did not deserve that win. Like I said before, it’s like getting an A in Chemistry when you failed all the chemistry exams. Kris: you ain’t good in chemistry nor in singing. You are average and safe but not great. Adam is great, unique and brilliant. He has a career ahead of him that will surpass yours. So when Kris Allen wakes up tomorrow, he needs to know the guy with the vocal chops did not win. ANd that willsuck for Allen to realize. Adam, your fans will follow your career forever. We will not let you go. I will go to your shows and buy your CD’s. Please make yoru CD asap – I have only bought your Idol itunes. I will not watch the show again. Ever. I wish Adam was not going on the road with them. Is there any way he can refrain from going on the Idol tour? I wish there was. I would like to see Adam perform but I do not want to pay to see Kris Allen so I will wait for Adam to perform on his own. We love you Adam. This is good for your career. I htought I was going to be so broken up by this but I realize now you can do what you want with your career and not have to sing that awful Kara song. Thank God for that. That song is like a bad insurance commercial. A rock god does not sing that crap. Look at you with Queen and Kiss: it was like Freddie Mercury up there. You have a long career ahead of you. Karma works in mysterious ways, you may not get this but you will get so much more. And that is why I identify with you so much: the Christian conservatives don’t get you but people like you become great stars. Like Bowie, Jagger and Mercury, you will be great. Take care of your self: no drugs, be always safe, no drama, manage your career and money well and you will be an icon. A legend. I love you always Adam. Thank you for saving me with your music. Love you!

    • Lamberkitten says:

      I am sure Adam won’t be able to escape the tour! However, there is nothing to stop Adam’s fans leaving as Kris comes on. Although that does seem cruel really and not I am sure that is what Adam would want. Adam is a nice guy and some of us have become a little twisted in our adoration of him. He will do well regardless. Let Kris have his little bit of glory, like you say he will suffer enough knowing Adam is the true Idol. Adam’s talent for passionate, fun and perfect performance has inspired us all and am sure we have plenty to look forward to. Rock on Adam, big hugs, kisses and love from the UK.

      • Im just sad cause he wanted it more!!!! and I wanted to see him cry/smile of happiness. Kris will come and go but Lambert will outsell and a.i. has lost all credibility to me.

        The show was spectacular untill that final part but who cares now, Adam just needed exposure to let the world know who he is and what is he’s passion/talent,…LOVE U ADAM BEST WISHES FROM HONDURAS!!!! 🙂

    • It’s not Kris’s fault. He decried all the bigotry and religious folderol. He seems like a nice young man. It’s a pity his win will be tainted by all this. He doesn’t deserve the anger. The people who used him as some kind of standard bearer do.

  24. I AM SO DEVASTATED.
    SERIOUSLY

    KRIS???? ARE YOU KIDDING ME. I MEAN I LIKE HIM HE’S NICE AND ALL BUT ADAM TRULY DESERVED IT. I screamed when Ryan announced the results

    hahaha

    Adam fans just gotta get over it:( AND WAIT FOR HIS ALBUM!! SHOW HIM ALL OUR SUPPORT! SHOW AMERICA WHO SHOULD HAVE WON AND WHO’S ALBUM SALES ARE WAAY HIGHER

    EHEHEH

  25. Lamberkitten says:

    I am gutted, as we all are. But some very valid points being made about the positive elements of Adam losing. I am a UK fan and does anyone know how to legally download Adam’s music for my ipod? Itunes UK not yet carrying Adam’s tunes. Any help gratefully received as I dearly want to support Adam in the only way that will count, through our wallets!!!!

    • Yeah it pissed me off no end that I couldnt download them either 🙁

      • GlamGirlLee says:

        Really? No iTunes downloads for Europeans? I think I will start gifting them to my European friends. Hmm.

  26. wallabee says:

    This is out of my logic. Even Vote For The Worst knows who is the worst between Adam and Kris (they picked up Kris). I just realize that this country is full of a bunch narrow minded homophobic idiots who votes for Kris Allen … Even Simon didn’t get up on his feet when Kris is announced as the winner. All of honest and smart people must be shocked with this result.

    • AdamAddict says:

      I did noticed Simon didn’t stand up either while other judges did. Simon wants Adam to win for sure because Adam deserves this more. After all weeks,Adam only got 1 bad critic from Simon during “Ring Of Fire” and 1 more from Randy in the final during “No Boundaries”
      The rest Adam was showered with praised! I think he almost drown there! LOL!!
      While Kris I lost count! And then Kris won! Wow!!

  27. David Hinsma says:

    Adam got way, way too campy. He blew it all by himself. He seems like a down-to-earth kind of guy, and I bet he isn’t half as wrecked as the commenters are here. In the end it is just a TV show. There are bigger injustices in the world.

    • Jennifer T says:

      Please explain what you mean by “campy” and how he “blew it all himself”

      I, for one, do not see how in the world you can come up with a comment like that! Please enlighten me?

      Then God said, “Let there be Adam Lambert! And it was GOOD!”

      • GlamGirlLee says:

        I second Jennifer T. What did he blow? He was FANTASTIC all the way to the end. I fall asleep everytime I make an effort to listen to other contestants’ songs trying to be objective. Adam is, after all, God’s gift to us mortals. No, I am not Christian. I am just quoting. 🙂

  28. Well Kris allen is a nice guy. He is now the American Idol 2009 and our Adam is crowned The world Idol! as he is an international icon already.
    Go Adam Lambert show us who is the “World Idol” with all your talent and we all everywhere will buy your records. You will be big a Star like Elvis but becarefull of what you sign as Elvis was tighted in Vegas and eliminated him in the end.
    We dont want that happenning to you!
    Thaks to Adam Lambert for teaching us more Christianity than the ” called Christians”.: The day we learn to accept each other with our differences that day Love will win!!! as Jesus said we all are equal and love each other as yourself.
    Go ADAM LAMBERT GO YOU WILL BE THE NEXT KING IN ROCK!!!!!:))

  29. From UK says:

    Doesn’t America realize what true talent is…..Hope Adam puts out a single real soon.

    • GlamGirlLee says:

      Hey, stop bashing Americans. Not all Americans are alike. Some are more vocal (in terms of voting, that is) than others.

  30. I so agree with LAMBRIT what a christian thing to do for those who voted for KRIS for the wrong reason. Rob a true talented guy of his title that he truely deserved. BIG SHAME FOR AMERICA.
    I have never bought any other idols album but it will be an honour for me to buy ADAM’s.
    Your a true WORLD IDOL ADAM, I will be a fan forever. God bless you just keep doing what you doing the WORLD loves you.

  31. OH, I NEED TO ADD THAT, ADAM, THIS WAS NO LOSS 4 U. mE, MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS ARE TOTALLY OBSESSED W/YOUR FACE AND TALENT, AS ARE MILLIONS & MILLIONS & MILLIONS OF THE NEW ICON IN OUR MIDST – YOU!!! You’ve given me many songs to listen to once again! Haven’t had anything like you in ..say EVER! YOU’RE GIVING THIS WORLD SOME MUCH, MUCH NEEDED LOVE, MUSIC-GENIUS, AND, MAY I ADD, HOPE FOR THE FUTURE!! WHAT A CLASS ACT YOU ARE!! i APPLAUDE YOU FOR YOUR HANDLING OF THIS TERRIBLE, DISGUSTING PIECE OF CRAP YOU WERE HANDED WED. NITE. OH, I KNOW YOU ARE A SUPERSTAR, ALREADY, BUT THAT IN NO WAY ERASES THE INJUSTICE YOU WERE HANDED TO DEAL WITH. SUCCESS IS THE BEST REVENGE. – NOT THAT I WANT YOU TO BE VENGEFUL!! YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN. I’M SO HURT FOR YOU. BUT, THINK OF IT LIKE THIS: you’ve been rejected by the least of our society!! The haters! You, on the other hand can stand tall (and very cool!) and be thankful your life is going somewhere Positive!!!! YOU’RE LOVED WORLDWIDE, ADAM!!! -LOVE-PEACE-LOVE- from me & all Adam fans!!!

  32. i think america was scared to have someone as daring and awesome and original as Adam. I honestly think they were scared. And so many people loved adam. Like seriously, did Kris have a party specifically for him?! NO but Adam did because he is better!

    Did you see their performances?
    Kris was like strumming along with Keith Urban to a really bad song
    and Adam was rocking with KISS and there were explosions!
    COME ON!!!!

    And in a sense, he already won…

    • AdamAddict says:

      I love the way Adam sing in Ford commercial “I will remember you” I can feel it. It touch my soul. I suddenly forgot that there’s also Kris there! Beautiful voice really match with that beautiful face!

      And at the end when they sing “we’re the champion” Adam looked very careful not to over sing Kris. He such a nice person but people judged him with all that nail polish,eyeliner and his sexual orientation thing! They make me want to puke! Sure, they straight and they’re super nice. Yeah right,like I’m going to believe all that crap. they said something really2 awful that can hurt someone badly!They are beast!

      Some of them bash Adam’s mum as well .Said she looked like a hooker,can you believe that? I already bash and swear them back but you know the word ass become like *** but it’s okay they still got the point!

  33. MissLambert says:

    Totally agree; Kris, seriously ?
    Adam is so much better, and he deserves to win.
    But like so many ppl say, the one how get the 2nd place will be more famous, sell more cd’s, and is just way better!!
    LOVE YOU ADAM, YOU HAVE WON THE IDOL FOR ME !
    YOURE MY IDOL !

    * the one who gets the 2nd place will be more famous ..

  35. lambertlady54 says:

    no need to worry guys…adam is gonna be huge!!!! ( alothough…i am HUGELY disappointed…) He took it with grace and so should we..:D

  36. LISTEN i suggest everyone download Adams version of “No boundaries” on iTunes.wouldnt it be cool if he selled more than the actual winner?just saying.
    P.S.no hate on Kris…but i really hate Amerika right now

    • Lamberkitten says:

      That is a really good idea for USA folks, but not able to get anything of Adams on itunes in the UK. Really frustrating. Does anyone know of any legal outlets that I could try?

  37. Guys, Im here in the Philippines and all my officemates were shocked too! America did it again – choosing the wrong winner. I have nothing against Kris because he is a nice person, in fact, fi know that he and Adam are friends. But come on, Adam deserves the title. I pity Kris really because at the back of his mind and it came from him, that Adam deserves the title. And it will haunt him. I dont blame Kris, I blame those people who voted for him because he is Christian, he is cute blah blah. For those who hate Adam because of his sexual preference, shame on you. It’s his life, his own choice. AI is a talent, singing competition. If and then Adam is gay, I would stil love him because he gives joy, entertainment and shows truly who he is. By the way, let us show and prove that Adam is the true winner. Let us support him in all his endeavors. Let us prove that our love remains aftet AI. Let us show them that Adam is hyped, or a trend or flush in the pan popularity. To Adam, I will continue to love you, follow your career and I hope you visit our country, just like what DC and DA did last week (they both did a concert).

    • Yeah! that’s a good idea! I’m from the Philippines as well and I am looking forward to that. Well same with me, my officemates were so shocked even though they like Kris. You know, he is just a better opponent but not a winner. Well, Adam anyway is already iconic. The title is unrelevant already. You see there’s a lot of us who are pouring our support on him. We know from our heart that he can go far in the years to come

  38. that would read as “not hyped, not a trend of a flush in the pan popularity”

  39. Ana Lambert says:

    Hi Adam fans!

    Yes I agree with all the comments. Adam should have won…my 10 yea-old daughter burst into tears showing that even a child recognises a talent like Adam. However, who cares about this cheesy show that I vow not to watch anymore. Adam is huge, a megastar and I wish him a great career. I will be there, buying his albuns, watching whatever he does. Not a favour. In fact, Adam is the one we should all say thank you. Thank you for entetaining us so brilliantly and letting us witness a star in the making. I am a 70s child and could not believe my eyes when I saw Kiss and Queen on stage. Adam had the real star treatment (I don´t even know who the guy who duet with Kris was). Anyway, let´s move on and continue to show our support for Adam. Much love from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

  40. Adam has said he wants to be a role model for all those kids who grew up being a little “different,” so I doubt if he was shocked with the results. He’s used to people’s reaction to his somewhat over the top persona. However he has also said he did Idol to further his career in show business and the nationwide exposure and the fan loyalty is proof that he attained his goal. When I saw him with Kiss, I finally “got it. ” He was actually made up less than they were and looked and sounded very comfortable in this element. He is so magnetic and charismatic that it’s hard to take your eyes off him when on stage. He will be a big big star and many offers will come his way. The rock stars who gave him permission to do their songs were probably curious to see what he would do with them with his extraordinary talent, creativity and range. They would not have given it had they not had total respect for him as a performer. They do not want some yo-yo making a mockery of their franchise material. Good luck to you Adam. Your uniqueness and talent is what set you apart from the other contestants. To me it wasn’t even a contest.

    • InAWEofAdam says:

      I agree with you 110%, Couldn’t of said it better! He was so comfortable with them, I mean WOW Kiss and Queen, when he sung “Beth” I came out of the Chair “Yes” Yes” Yes'” and oh My god were all I could say, then he said Ladies and Gentlemen, Kiss…The hair on the back of my neck stood up, I was Like YES he’s singing with KISS, that was the most amazing show I’ve ever seen American Idol do, and it’s all because of ADAM….He owned the show and the stage! The real Star shone through, the other will be a shooting star that burns out.

      • lamberghini says:

        So well said. Idol pulled out all the stops for Adam. His inspiration threw the producers into overdrive and boy, did everyone deliver. I thought it was perfectly THRILLING to see him carry the show to such heights–so easily and naturally. As Ed Sullivan used to say, it was a “really big show.” Adam is going to give us breathlessly big shows and heart-stopping entertainment in the future. How exciting is that?!

      • zumazuma13 says:

        I agree with both of you! ADAM rocking out with KISS & QUEEN showed his abilities to be a true Rock Star himself. That was the most exciting AI Finale I have ever seen! I cried *happy tears* for Adam to be able to perform with both KISS & Queen last night. Adam is going to be MORE then fine, with his exceptional talent and thoughtful, charming personality he will go so far with his career. I’m SO VERY PROUD of you ADAM LAMBERT!

        Please everyone read ADAM’s own words of being a Proud runner up, he is very inspirational:

        I totally agree with you 100000%, and to Sue.
        It wasnt even a contest, it was Adams show.
        It was so cool, hot, amazing, awsome, everything!
        And when he sang with Kiss, it really got even better! (:
        Hes so talented guy and I love him no matter what!
        Im going to buy every single album that he does.
        And I just want to say “Thank You Adam For Everything! I Love You, And I Will Do That 4 Ever!<3”.

        • GlamGirlLee says:

          Whole heartedly agree. I am thankful for what he brought to people around the world. My very upset East Coast friend called me before the show aired on the West Coast. So I was already bummed before the show time. But I thought to myself, ‘this show has always been Adam Lambert show all season long, so why stop thinking of it that way now?’. I did what I could to help him by voting like a fiend but personally I don’t care much for the show or the title. I had never watched American Idol intentionally past 7 seasons until Adam showed up. Not wanting to miss a single performance by him, I watched the result show. It was worth it to see him with Kiss and Queen. He was totally awesome and as gracious as ever. And congrats and kudos to Kris who has always been consistent for being such a great human being if not a dynamite like Adam.

      • I Don't Think So says:

        I am still shaking with delight from that performance! I was crying for Rock Week for him to do Beth…and then in the finale results show when he did it never in my wildest DREAMS did I think KISS would be a part of it. It was like second nature to Adam and gosh darnit he wasn’t even freaking ALIVE when the original songs came out. And there was this one note Adam hit and Paul Stanley was like how the EFF did he do that?

        Adam, sweetie, you just keep on keeping on! Consider yourself validated my man, to he-double-hockey sticks with AI and with the small minded POS’s who are so blinded by ignorance, intolerance and hatred. You have a TON of people on your side who love you and want to see you do well!

        Thank you for making me feel young again, you are the m-fin bomb!

  41. It’s 3:45 in the morning & I’m still upset. This reminds me of when other fabulous singers did not win e.g. Tamyra Gray, Clay Aiken, Chris Daughtry, Jennifer Hudson, Katherine McFee, Melinda Doolittle, etc. After this many seasons of American Idol, you would think I would be used to this injustice, except, I’m not. Because I think Adam is a winner, I expected him to win. There is always such sweet justice when one of the ‘losers’ outsells the winner. Wait until the Idol tour when the frenzy for Adam will be greater than for the rest of the Idols.

  42. OK, so let’s be honest here, Adam Lambert is , hands down , the WINNER of Idol, What a sham Idol has become, America Voted, Or should I say all the little Teeny Boppers Voted for Mr Cute, Blah, Talent thrown out the window, it’s now Who’s cute,, BS all the Phreaking Way, Idol needs revamping, big time…. this reminds me of Jason Castro, ( another no talent ) who knocked off alot of good contestants,,Because of the Teeny’s

  43. Arianna says:

    What a dissappointment American Idol Last show is this year! It was great since audition but the result show made us twitch in pain and cry sad tears. nothing happy about it for me at all, except the agony of watching Adam smiling and hiding his ‘dangit! i didn’t win’ feeling..i wanna hug him so bad and tell him, its okay dude, tonite may be his night but the night after this and the rest of the years will be your victory all the way!.

    Don’t worry Adam, we’ll support your music no matter what people say or do to bring you down. We fans stick together like glue and we’ll never let you fall even long after tonite is over.

    Adamania for eternity!

    • AdamAddict says:

      In his interview after the show finished,he was asked”How he feel when Ryan announced Kris is the winner?” He answer “For me it’s not about what happens tonight.It’s about tomorrow”

      I have to agree with him on that one. I was really pissed before but now I’m more relax and calm and I really believe he still going to be a huge star even without that title.

      He was asked “Did you received any offers yet?” Adam said “Just a few here and there”

      HOORAY!!!

      • Miss Lambert says:

        I agree with you and Adam.
        And like many ppl say, and i think that is correct, that the one who gets the 2nd place will be more famous, sell more albums, gets many offers and that kinda stuff.
        I am very proud of Adam and I want to thank him for letting the show be fun and entertaining to watch.
        I have never been that into AI though I have watched the show almoust every year.
        But when I saw Adam in the audition I fell in Loveee.. <3
        Hes the real deal, and hes even way better for the show.
        He should have discovered a long time ago and being a legend now, as he is for me!
        I just wanted to say “Thank you Adam for being so amazing singer, awesome, hot, charming, funny, the best … everything !!! Love you so much! <3”
        I cried last night, it was so sad. But I belive in him so it wont be big problem.
        Hes going to sell albums in no time!
        Good Luck Adam!

  44. Redsetter says:

    Adam is a stellar performer and I’m soooo looking forward to all the rest that his artistry will give us in the decades to come. Alas, the underdog wins — not deservedly — just because everyone feels sorry for him. Once it was established that Adam has EVERYTHING going for him, the “let’s give the underdog a chance to succeed” mentality set in. Two things blew it for Adam and none of it had to do with his talent, finese and extreme devotion to his craft: one, the judges ALL came out for him (and authority figures must be proven wrong) and two, Gokey didn’t make it to the top 2. We all came out for Adam just a week too early. We polarized the mid-section, gave Kris the esteemed position of “underdog” (Dark Horse) and secured his future. He needs the machine behind him, Adam does not. Kris got the trophy for perfect attendence not ourstanding performer. It’s a drag and I’m gutted (as someone else has said). I can’t believe how disappointed I am with the whole travesty but also how excited that Adam had this platform to showcase what he can do. I swear it’s like Christmas eve and the anticipation of knowing that Santa is coming and will be leaving us something REALLY, REALLY great. The best is yet to come. Like Paula, I’ll be the first in line.

  45. ADAM was ROBBED!!!!Adam was the true winner this season and everyone knows, it including Kris. I actually kind of feel sorry for Kris because he will never really be viewed as the legit idol. He knows that at best he won a popularity contest but it’s far more likely that he was used by Fox & the Religious Right ( Many feel they are in fact one and the same -Fox & Far Right) to prevent an potentially gay man from becoming the American Idol. But time will reveal the truth to everyone. Adam will surpass Kris in all measurements possible-record sales-concerts-international fame-merchandising, etc. etc. Adam stole my heart and made me a fan for life. Kris is a talented guy but he’s no Adam and he knows it -maybe better than anyone and that’s why he said he didn’t know how he felt because he said Adam DESERVED it. Well! Kris was really right about that…

  46. ‘I definitely agree to all your comments, actually when i heard that kris is the American Idol, I was totally pissed off..I can’t focus on what I’m doing.How come America did this kind of mistake..America is not yet ready for Adam, they just want a typical type of singer..

    Adam really deserves it because He’s consistently good, He made every week exciting and full of Energy..Kris somehow boring..but when I read the interview of Adam, all my bitterness gone, Adam is such a nice, Down to earth guy, He is not bitter.He was happy because kris won..He said that it’s not really about what happens tonight. It’s about tomorrow.Yah, He’s absolutely right..look He’s happy on what happened so Let’s just be happy too..I don’t like Kris that much but what happens, Happens..

    He’s now in the real race..So let’s Support him..I’m from the Philippines, I’m very frustrated coz I can’t see him in tours & Concert as well,but I will support him no matter what happens..and by the time that He will visit our country, I will definitely watch him..

    I’m sure that he will not be just a Great recording artist but a Concert artist as well..

    Go ADAM..ADAM for life..I’ll be your fan forever!!

  47. Lamberkitten says:

    UK fans, just checked iTunes and found something of Adams on there. “Is anybody listening” from the Ten Commandments. Naturally I have bought it as it the only legal thing I can put on my ipod of Adams. Check it out.

  48. jimmiethefish says:

    Really agree with the positives that LambBrit pointed out earlier especially that Adam does not have to put out that bloody awful song. Other positives include never having to watch American Idol again. I mean why? We’ve found our boy, the new Dark Lord of Rock, so AI’s redundant. Also that Adam did get so much further than he thought he would, given that he knew he would be judged in a negative light by many. That’s down to the awesome people who have loved and supported him, and to Adam himself for taking the risk to be himself, and so allowing us take him into our hearts and lives. And one final thought; as I watched Adam sing with Kiss and then with Queen (Brian May seems to be a fan too!), I got the feeling that being the number one idol would not make Adam the winner at all. So it was that when Kris’s name was read out, yes I felt disappointed but also very relieved because now, our boy can be his own man.

  52. sandyjr says:

    THAT WAS WRONG. JUST PLAIN WRONG. I respect other peoples opinions and I respect Kris. I hope he has success in the future. But I don’t respect the ones who must have voted against Adam for reasons other than his amazing talent. All you’ve managed to do is hurt Kris and hurt American Idol. Kris will always be known as the guy who shouldn’t have won. American Idol will always be known as the show that Adam Lambert didn’t win but should have. WHAT WENT WRONG. Is it the voting system? Should everyone have just one vote? Please do something to make it more fair because this result certainly wasn’t.

    • Totally agree with your thoughts about Kris always being known as “the guy who shouldn’t have won”. It really is awful that America did that to him. He even said, after he won, that Adam was the won who deserved to win. Even KRIS knew HIMSELF that Adam was better! I just shake my head. I’m also wondering about the voting system. Did people just assume Adam would win so they didn’t vote? Did all of Danny’s fans also love Kris? It becomes a popularity contest at the end with who can get the most votes. I don’t think America truly voted on talent either. His close friends and family were probably on the phones and text messaging all 4 hours… with 4 phones each! They probably put in most of his votes!

    • marisouza says:

      I totally agree with you!! Kris will always be the one who shouldn’t have won… By the way, have you guys seen Simon’s face at the end of the show, after the results?? He was very very disappointed!!

    • AdamAddict says:

      I know it’s not fair,obviously Adam should win but what can we do?
      Try to forget…or maybe not because this is biggest joke ever but we keep support Adam after this. That’s what he need.Let’s look at the future,maybe you need a sunglasses because our Adam’s future will be very very bright!!

  53. I was a fan of Adam’s from the start. I felt that his loss on Idol was such a slap in the face after all the hard work and spectacular performances of his. But as someone else already said, maybe it’s better this way because now he’s free to sign on with anyone he wants and not be obligated to a contract with American Idol. He will DEFINITELY sell more records than Kris if we, his fans, make that happen. I have no idea what the hell America was thinking – there is NO WAY that Kris was even remotely better, at anything – style, vocals, performances – than Adam. Adam has become my #1 favorite music artist… and he always will be. I’m very disappointed at America.

  54. I seriously need a psychiatrist now.. I need grief counseling!!! I have nothing against kris, and i was half-expecting that he would win so i was not completely surprised.. I dunno why, I just felt it.. Like when I was feeling uneasy after the Rat pack week, and then there he was, in the bottom three.. AGHH.. Adam deserved this title so much more, I feel so sad for adam, even if he says he’s still happy that he didn’t get the title. Adam has done so much more, went through a lot, and struggled to get to this. Although at first I wished for him not to be the winner since I think he would do WAAAAYY BETTER without the AI producers.. They would definitely get in the way, and Adam would lose some of his “ADAM-NESS” if he won. Buuuut, I really really felt miserable when Ryan announced the winner. Everything that Adam has done, all the praise he got, specially from Simon, and then he loses?!?!?!?!! I FEEL SO SAD 🙁 I don’t even know if i can get over this. and just thinking of the fact that I wouldn’t be able to watch him on TV every week anymore makes me feel miserable. I miss him alreaaady!!!!! I feel like i was the one who lost.. This is such a sad sad sad sad sad sad day. 🙁

  55. Hi all.. i’m adam’s fan from singapore. The results was shocking for me and many others.. fans or non-fans alike cos to us, it’s a forgone conclusion that adam would win this season. However, i guess there’s a silver lining in the clouds. God is fair to both men. Kris needs to win to be remembered. Adam doesnt need that. He’s already making a name the world over.

  56. Rainbowgirl85 says:

    This is crap even Kris said Adam should win.

    Although I agree that by not winning he won’t be restricted.

  57. Adam did not win and that’s a relief.He does not need the Idol label because he’s going to be a superstar anyway. Kris is a nice guy and good musician and Adam will be the first to say that. Greatness comes once in a while and this time it’s Adam Lambert. I can’t wait for his first album. Adam, come to Sydney soon !!!

  58. I was at school (in Malaysia) and it was study period before the English paper, about 10 am. A group of seniors crowded round a payphone during recess to check on who won, and when I heard it was Kris my exact reaction was “Are you SERIOUS?! Damn serious?!”

    *sigh* Needless to say I was upset for a few hours – Adam Lambert, lose the title to Kris? I mean, Kris is good and all but Adam’s amazing – even Kris didn’t know what to say, he was so confused and bewildered and said that Adam deserved it more. I guess the awful sinking feeling in my stomach was right =/

    It was heartbreaking, watching Adam step aside as Kris sings “No Boundaries”.

    But after calming down I realised that it might not be so bad this way – Kris needed this win to be successful, but Adam doesn’t – he will be even more successful than Kris even as the runner up. And this way, Adam is not as confined to the AI contract as Kris.

    Cheer up everyone – as soon as Adam’s album is released and he can start having concerts, let’s prove once again that winning American Idol does not necessarily make you more successful. Kris may have won the title, but Adam will always be the real winner for me.

  59. oh and may i just add.. My mom is ONE BIG ADAM FAN! and she’s already almost 60.. While Adam was singing Beth, my mom was like, oohh he’s like michael jackson… but DEFINITELY MOREE HANDSOOME.. LOL.. and I told her I hope Adam doesnt go crazy like jackson and do any plastic surgery of some sort or whatever.. and then my mom goes.. OH, HE DOESNT NEED THOSE..

    LOOOOL!!! HAHAHAHA.. Adam’s gonna be a worldwide superstar.. He connects to people of all ages, races, the list goes on.. I wish him all the best on his album.. MY MOM AND I CANNOT WAIT FOR IT! haha..

    • AdamAddict says:

      LOL!! My grandmother loves him too and she’s like 70+. She really thought Adam going to win and I was having doubt because of that Danny voters+Kris voters VS Adam Lovers. It’s just look impossible but I still praying for miracles.
      I screamed when our Adam lost and my grandma was like “totally unfair,totally unfair” and I was still screaming and my dad came in and was like “oh,he lost??” LOL!!

    Dearest Dreamsound,
    Thank you so very much for your perfectly beautiful website. Throughout the competition, it felt like a party and immediately after, it felt like a shoulder to cry on! Marvelous company throughout. I deeply appreciate your wizardry and devotion. Adam is locked in our hearts forever and we are with him through thick and thin. Your site has made it all the sweeter (and easier) to share Adamlove and I wish you all your dreams come true. I believe Adam’s has.

    What a class act. Adam’s comments re Kris’s win. Makes me love him more.

  63. KRIS IS THE MOST UNTALENTED PERSON I HAVE EVER WITNESSED, ADAM LAMBERT IS THE GREATEST PERFORMER ON THE SHOW AND DESERVED TO WIN, IT IS A POPULARITY CONTEST NOT A TALENT CONTEST

    THIS IS THE BIGGEST RIGGED SHOW OF THE CENTURY.

    I ALWAYS WANDERED WHY STUPID AMERICAN’S VOTED FOR GEORGE W BUSH, NOW I KNOW WHY, YOU GUYS WOULDN’T KNOW TALENT IF IT BIT YOU

    I KNOW THAT STUPID GRIN ON KRIS WILL BE WIPED IN A COUPLE OF YEARS WHEN ADAM IS THE ICON AND IT WILL BE KRIS …….WHO

    AMERICAN FOOLS !!!!

  64. And, silly me, I thought AI was a *singing* competition!

    • AdamAddict says:

      It’s not American Idol,it’s America’s next top model. 2 pretty boys BUT still they made a wrong decision because Adam is prettier!! Muah,Adam!! Love you most!

  65. Hi!

    I´m sad too, not because i think he needed to win for becoming a star. He´s already a great star, and a world wide rock god, but the feeling that the world is unfair just bothers me. Everyone saw the superiority of Adam if compared to any other of the bunch singing there! I suppose that you all understand what I feel … who else could sing like he did with Kiss, or the final music with Queen!! He was a gentleman til the end! Now, I´m just gonna wait for Adam´s cd, and all the love for that great guy.

    See u

    Iv.

  66. lmbtfan says:

    I am sad, disappointed and bewildered! I thought with all Adam’s international fans around the world voting for him will make him the AI winner. What the hell went wrong???
    Adam still my winner, love you ADAM.

  67. We will be hearing from Adam Lambert for years to come. He was smiling last night, and I imagine he already has lots of offers from all sorts of venues. Even though I am still disappointed this morning, I see it as liberating for him….. Adam is no longer committed to some of the Idol contracts and expectations forced on the winner. Kris is a nice guy with a decent voice … but I predict you won’t be hearing anything from him 5 yrs from now, except to reappear on future Idol shows.

  68. this really does suck for one major reason – the winner is the first to release an album

  69. Adam has been the ONE since the beginning. I am so impressed with his professionalism, his charisma, his abillities, his humbleness. I am a 59 yr old mother if three. My 84 yr old father could not believe that Adam did not win. But I am happy for Chris. No matter what the STUPID voting results were, it is finished. However, Adam is fantastic! Let’s all praise him for his wonderful performances in every genre and watch and support him on his journey to fame and fortune. If we are lucky, and he gets the right deal, we will be able to love and enjoy him for many years. All I can say is, Thank you Adam, for one fantastic musical ride!:) We will see who goes the furthest and proves the best after all.

  70. I am not consoled by the fact that he WILL be a superstar eventually. FACT IS…HE SHOULD HAVE WON! I am grieving and in despair. I know that Adam is taking this way better than me and gazillions of his fans… BUT I AM SO SICK OF THE RESULT AND SO VERY, VERY SAD THAT HE WAS NOT THE WINNER OF SEASON 8. My only consolation is that Kris, in all his humility, acknowledged Adam– even the show’s ending seems soooo AWKWARD and the entire hall was shocked and sad… Congrats, Kris… you’re a good man. ADAM, YOU ARE AND WILL ALWAYS BE THE WINNER.

  71. DarkShadowsAbove says:

    First thing I have to say: Congratulations, Kris!!!

    Now for the rest of it. I was disappointed, I have to admit. However, Adam took it really well; he’s probably over it already. Adam already has a contract, which is wonderful. Kris said on stage in front of the world that Adam deserved it. All in all, when nearly 2/5 of the votes come from one state for one contestant, it’s pretty much a guarantee that contestant is going to win. Just look at Season 2 with Clay and Ruben. Kris was good and if Adam wasn’t in the competition and I had decided to continue watching this season, I may very well have voted for Kris.

    I’m just looking at it from the perspective that I’ll be buying all of Adam’s CD’s, DVD’s, concert tickets, etc. for the rest of my life. Adam is already an international superstar, give him 10 years and he will be a long-lasting iconic figure of the new rock age. Adam will change the landscape of rock music forever and I’m so glad that I get to see it happening.

    • AdamAddict says:

      He can be rock star if he wants but I hope he won’t keep his hair long and perm it or paint his face. Because I love his face,can’t see that beautiful face if he paint it and Adam’s hair style is way to cool.

  72. Adam is one of the best singers my ears have been blessed to hear these last 40 years. I hope he takes heart that although he didn’t win this popularity contest (that is what it was this year), his singing talent is unreal. At least AI has provided a stage to showcase his talent, which is seen but once in a very very rare while. Best of luck to Adam, although he really won’t need it. I look forward to seeing Adam’s CD’s on the shelves and following his undoubted rise to international fame and success. Rock on! Rock on!

  73. AdamIsOurAI says:

    Now that some of the numbness from last night has worn off and the tears have stopped from the unfairness of it, I can focus on the bazillion positives that will come from this for Adam. His first CD will not be here fast enough for me!!!!!. He is THE most gracious, kind, gorgeous, incredibly talented person. The good thing about AI is that he had super exposure – that IS how most of us came to know and love him – and his being able to spend time with some great musicians and artists, which I think also will afford him unbelieveable support in the business. I can’t wait!

  74. Initially I was upset – but I don’t think Adam was robbed. He was much too big for this show. He now has the opportunity to direct his career without being tied to all the commercial stuff that surrounds Idol. Kris Allen is much more suited to this. Good luck to him!

    Adam is winning all the way – great clothes,new car,he got paid and most of all he got to sing with Kiss and Queen!! It was not about winning – it was about the journey. He was a winner from day one! And now he has this great fansite set up. Great job DREAMSOUND!

    GO ADAM – WORLD IDOL – can’t wait for the next few years !!!!!!!!

  75. Adam, YOU WON MY HEART AND MY SUPPORT MORE THAN EVER. I hope that this little obstacle will make you stronger and rise above all thing. COME AND RESCUE TODAY’S POP MUSIC. I will wait for that hero. Show that ADAM LAMBERT is the TRUE SUPERSTAR!!!!!!!

    Fellow fans, I’m with y’all. This is a voice from the Far East.

  76. What a sad ending but Adam Lambert has changed the face of American Idol. He will be the new benchmark for creativity and talent ! He will definitely make it big after this…

  77. Guys! we did our best yesterday. From Venezuela, Argentina, Brazil to U.K up to Malaysia, New Zeal and, Hong Kong, Vietnam, the Philippines and the rest of international fans, we all deserve to congratulate each other for the job well done. For our American colleagues, thank you so much for the encouragements. Thank you for the guidance and continue giving the spirit and energy to fight with this journey. We’ve reached this far and for me I WOULD NOT BE HYPOCRITE TO SAY THAT I WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED. I DO. I do not want to think as well that American viewers are not intelligent enough to appreciate real talent. I FIRMLY believe, that Adam’s career will go far than any of his contenders in this season. We did our part, lets not feel guilty about it. I know that there are still a lot of people who felt the same way as we did. And it only shows that many really believe that he deserves the title than anyone. Let’s continue to support Adam in the years to come. I know there is nothing to prove. This is the time that we have to prove to them that Adam deserves even better to be in the spotlight. And that Ada doesn’t need the title anyway for him to be called an ARTIST, a record seller performer, or a King of Concert. Since we all know that he can be what he can be. It is just starting. See ya everyone.

  78. Adam can always go back to broadway with his “10hp 5ac +5 to gay” shoulders he was wearing last night. Kris had it from the get go with nothing but raw talent and an acoustic guitar. He didn’t require glam and glitz to try and win the vote in what is billed as and obviously voted on as a singing competition.

    Anyone who skips out onto the stage while starting to sing “born to be wild” belongs on broadway, not the radio. America voted, Kris is the winner and Adam is the first loser. Get over it…

    Frank

    • GlamGirlLee says:

      Um, why are you here? Does Kris not have his own fansite?

      • AdamAddict says:

        To,Frank

        This is how to spell KRIS ALLEN not ADAM LAMBERT. KRIS starts with K. It’s the word after J. But you probably stupid enough to read this. ADAM LAMBERT IS THE WINNER,SO YOU GET OVER IT AND GET THE HELL OUT FROM HERE!!

        • AdamAddict says:

          Alphabet after J and before L. Can’t miss it! I know a lot of people spell it Chris and still proudly said that they are his fans,umm alright then but the Kris you like start with K,ok?
          Now,since I already helped you,you can fucked off now!!

          • AdamAddict says:

            I mean fuck off but it doesn’t matter fuck or fucked,I did swear at you!! Have a nice day!

  79. America sucks!!! and i will never watched AI again.. the only reason i did is because of ADAM…Don’t worry ADAM a lot of people around the world loves you and will support you all the way!!

    your avid fan from the Phils..

  80. Deborah says:

    I couldn’t seep last night..and I’m STILL in shock! I still feel awful about this TOTAL injustice. This is NOT about being a sore loser..all the best to Kris and he too is innocent in all of this..however…ADAM DESERVED THIS and that’s what outrages us all!!!! HOW DARE THEY strip him of this title after all his hard work, his humility and his incredible TALENT????

    Yes Adam is already a superstar and now will become a legend. And yes, we should all support him..forever and show the TV producers of American Idol that they CANNOT fool us into believing that AMERICA ACTUALLY VOTED FOR KRIS????? Sorry. as I said, Kris is a “nice guy”..but I still feel angry and betrayed as we all KNOW that Adam has been the greatest talent EVER discovered on the history of AI…shame on them: THEY have lost my vote.

    We are with you ADAM…ALL the way!!!!!
    Deborah

  81. Rayzonn says:

    Well said Lambrit!! Wow what a night! I am still in shock but reolizing now, that this is best for Adam since he can now do what he stated from the begining. *I have some ideas,things i want to try* Well now he can do that and chart his own course. AI wont be able to yank him around. I expect we will be seeing him all over TV and magazines from now on. Kris will fizzle,Adam will not.I am older and spent many hours on Adams chat site thanks to DS. I hope no one feels they failed Adam. I totally believe because of the FLOOD of calls for Adam many could just not get thru. Its kind of like a big sale. The doors open and everyone runs into the store and they all get stuck in the door and cant get in. In Kris’s case,the door opened and everyone went in one at a time,and got in. No one failed ADam. Your all die hard fans and i am sure Adam is proud of all of you . I do blame AI for the phone thing. I dont think anyone considered how popular Adam is and they were not prepared for such a massive vote for him. In the end I know we will see ALOT of Adam and poor as i am,i bet it all that Adam will outshine any other AI contestant..He already has!!!

  82. jimmiethefish says:

    There are winners and then, there are winners. Adam was the biggest winner of the night.

  83. KKinIndpls says:

    Well, I felt that Adam should have won, too. I like Kris and think he is talented and has a cool style, but Adam is fantastic. He’s smoking hot and rocks – his voice is beautiful and unique. His performance was a caliber above everyone else’s in the competition, and there were a lot of really good performers this year. I tried and tried to get through a vote for Adam, but could never get anything but a busy signal… I will definitely be looking for his music in the future. I’m not sure I will follow AI in the future though, after last night. Hey, maybe Adam can tour with Queen… 😉

  84. Deborah says:

    Oh and by the way..last night within 45 seconds of the results…the blogs all over the internet were jammed as no one could believe the “results”. I really hope that this at least gets some news coverage…as I said..it’s not about bashing Kris…it it is about what’s fair.

    American idol take your telephone call money and make MILLIONS of $$$…the least they can do in return is promote a FAIR and JUST contest. I have NEVER written in to any of these blogs / etc..I’m 41 years old with better things to do with my time, but somehow this needs to be rectified.

    Yes our Adam will be a legend and I will support him in every way ( I already have bought every single)..nevertheless I really want everyone to boycott the AI show now until he at least gets an apology ….or the voting system is looked into. And Simon Cowel who is known for speaking the truth…??? well Simon stand with us and RESIGN…. show us that you are TRUE TO what is the TRUTH!!!!!

    • AdamAddict says:

      Adam is the legend? Like that one. THE WINNER WHO DO NOT WIN! Everybody knows it’s our Adam Lambert!!

  85. in the very beginning of this whole thing i knew that kris allen would be a problem. I JUST KNEW IT!!!!!! and the whole while i praised ADAM, kris was climbing and i told my friends that ADAM would MOST DEFINITELY win this thing… as long as… he didnt go against kris allen and look what happens… UGH.. i hate being right… and my friends love that i was. this show has officially lost my interest… utter garbage i say… how dare “america’ chooses this fella! i can’t even wait 4 the albums to come out because kris is going to lose all the ego boost and confidence this title has given him… WTF… i just dont believe it… 100 million votes… kris allen wins… am i crying…i think im crying… AGAIN!!!!!

  86. Isabella says:

    I don’t really understand why Adam didn’t win. He is the most talented and extrodinere singer theres ever been! He is an real artist. i feel sorry for Kris too, ’cause now there’s a lot of expectation to him. And seems like a sweet guy.
    But at least Adam doesn’t have to be under that contract, now he can make the music he want’s to! i hope he will make many albums, and i will buy them all.
    ROCK ON!!!

    Jeg elsker dig!!! (it’s danish, in english: I love you!!!)

  87. Isabella says:

    oh, when i see that clip in the top, it just looks sooo wrong! and it feels so wrong! Kind of getting the wibe that Kris feels the same. he does not look prepared AT ALL. i think everyone thought Adam was going to win. He really really deserved it, but i still think this was better for Adam in the long run!

    Love you!

  88. YOURSFOREVER says:

    ADAM you are THE WORLD-CLASS star! We WANT change! We want REAL singers! WE love your multidimensional performing! I see a character in each song. What an immense talent! You have unbelievably clear and strong head voice. Those high notes remind me watching virtuoso playing, supersonic flying, ace performing, etc… CHAMPION! You are RARE virtuoso! ADAM plays his vocal instrument Like Niccolo Paganini and Antonio Stradivari their violin! We want real MASTERS! And this is ADAM!

    You are future MEGA star. I believe you will leave big imprint in musical history.

    Can’t wait till your first album! Please pop those records like popcorn, I can’t wait if I do not hear and see you every week…..

  89. te_amo_adam says:

    I hope we keep going with this support group because I’m already going through withdrawl. This was so exciting and Adam made it so much fun!!People we have a CD to look forward to and he might even work with Queen or Kiss in the future. No AI restraints!! Be happy everyone and really keep posting because I have nothing else but Adam right now and knowing that you’re all feeling the same way really helps. to everyone!!!

  90. i blame it on simon’s stupid “it’s too theatrical.” he should have gotten a standing O on his “mad world.” soooooo upset! that had nothing to do with talent and everything to do with politics and people’ appreciation for the underdog story. please, don’t compare adam to chris daughtry or clai aiken– he is sooooo much more talented than them. i truly think that he is the most deserving performer to ever grace the AI stage. BOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  91. I too, have been a fan of Adam’s since way back. It is obvious that he has spent years working very hard honing his skills, along with his natural talent. He is amazing. I also love his humble attitude, his friendly spirit, his creativity, strength and how articulate he is. I am not surprised that the major part of America isn’t ready for someone like Adam yet – kind of expected it. But as has already been voiced, this will give him more freedom in his album (okay, CD!) – which we all can’t wait to get! And… Can’t wait to see him in concert, either. Hope it won’t be too long – guess it’ll probably have to be a year – hope we can all wait that long! I noticed all videos of him were yanked from Youtube the day he became one of the two finalists.

    Adam – we all can’t wait to hear and see you soon! You’re talented and honestly, one of the best performers I’ve ever seen. I love watching you. Get back on that stage soon!!!

  92. IM TOTALLY DISSAPOINTED AND AMERICAN IDOL NOT AT ADAM!!!

    This shows me how less credibility the show has and will have in the futured cause I swear illl NEVER WATCH THAT STUPI SHOW AGAIN!!!!

    CONGRATS ADAM U ARE MY WINNER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FK U KRIS AND UR FAMILY!!!!!!!!! U DONT EVEN WANTED THAT TITLE!!! dickhead.

  93. PLEASE, People be real!!!!
    When Kris sings he sounds like a lot of other singers out there. ADAM’S sound is original and different. ADAM WILL BE A MEGA STAR!!!

  94. I’m I guess what you’d call an old lady, and have never commented in a fan group. BUT……I just wanted to add my voice to that of other Adam fans. ADAM IS THE BEST! I could not believe it when his name wasn’t announced last night. Yes, Randy, this is a singing competition, and Adam is in a league of his own when it comes to singing, and performing. I cannot wait to buy his CD and follow his career; I know it will be super-stardom for Adam! He IS the winner of this AI season.

  95. I’m really really really depressed right now…. I want to cry but there is no tears coming out…. I want to shout out loud but I can’t… I want to punch the face of Kris and say to him that “what the heck you don’t deserve that title”…. I’m not feeling good right now…. I want to sleep but I can’t… I want to forget that Kris wasn’t the winner but I can’t… I want to hug adam and say to him that “It’s ok that title is just only a word for me YOU ARE THE TRUE IDOL if kris is american idol YOU are WORLD IDOL”… My mind is really puzzling right now… I can’t face the truth, I really can’t, I really really can’t… Help me!!! Adam YOU WILL ALWAYS BE THE WINNER this contest sucks it’s not a talent search but a fucking popularity contest… I won’t say the most handsome and sexy contest because you are the winner I’m sure about that…. People right now will be sorry that Kris wins LET”S ALL FACE THE TRUTH THAT ADAM IS REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY FAR AWAY FROM KRIS IN SINGING AND IN LOOKS… Give me a good reason why that alien looking face won??? I’m really depressed right now… I really hoped that I voted million times back then….

  96. I listen to the Kiss performane with Adam over and over again in disbelief that such a great performer, such a fantastic voice did not win American Idol. What a lot of hypocrits, allowing their insecurities to affect their better judgement of recognising and aknowledging such great talent that only comes along once in a blue moon. His performacne in ‘We are the champions’ said it all for me, WHAT A VOICE, Adam you ‘ARE THE CHAMPION’, you are the main attraction for the AL tour, no one else. No matter what has taken place last night you have emerged a glorious winner world wide, when your music hits the stores it will rise to the top of the charts so fast like never before. You are MAGICAL AND WE LOVE YOU.

  97. BIg FAn says:

    Adam you rock! I

    Kris will NEVER match up to you. NO offence Kris but Adam kicks your a– by a long shot.
    Adam I will buy every single you make. I just know you will win alot of awards.

  98. The Legend says:

    AT & T CONFIRMED FROM THEIR DATA THAT 38 MILLION VOTES CAME FROM ARKANSAS. THE POPULATION OF ARKANSAS IS ABOUT 2.3 MILLION. WE KNEW THAT THEY WERE USING GIZMO AND DIAL IDOL TECHNOLOGY.
    One Arkansas church group of 152 people said they got in over 400,000 votes using the software and their texts. This is not American Idol as voted by millions, this is a few hundred thousand peopl trained in one state skewing the results (plus the Gokey fans).

    NOT A TALENT/SINGING CONTEST, THIS IS A REGIONAL VOTING AND TECHNOLOGY CONTEST. Kris admitted to one of his freinds “I don’t like the way in which I had won”

    • Milwadamfan says:

      I totally agree – this was a technology contest, and since on the whole I think Adam’s fans are older than Kris’s fans, the younger fans had the edge. I seriously think AI needs to revise their entire voting system for next year. Make it 5 votes per phone line like DWTS.

      • GlamGirlLee says:

        Yep, indeed, it was a technology contest. This is a lesson learned. We need to understand the game we are playing and strategize to get things done when we believe in something and want to take action. Recruiting people with the common cause, mobilizing them and learning the technology required to tackle the task *efficiently* is really important. Gizmo, landline were not enough. I got ~6 votes in via Gizmo, ~660 via DialIdol, ~300 by manually dialing landline while DialIdol was down, and ~19,000 in by texting, which goes to demonstrate the power of technology. Those who diligently dialed got squashed by more techno-savvy and loyal fans for the other team.

    • This is from Kris Allen Nation website.

      “UPDATE: 105 people who have reported their votes voted a staggering 436,650 times last night. That’s an average of 4,158 votes per person. Keep reporting your votes and we’ll keep updating. “

  99. Michael B. says:

    First of all, some on should challenge American Idol..first: it is NOT a competition, a competition is where the judges, whoever they are, get only ONE vote. Second: the people get to know what the results are, we do not. Any REAL competition is much more organized and the results are not secret. Just look at other show that have judges, the public does not vote, judges, who have experience in industry judge…American Idol IS NOT a competition, its just a show to make money. Again the end result will be who sells the most records, because thats what really matters..Still someone should make them change their name..its NOT a poll….or competition..and what world record did they break..how many times one person can hit redial on the phone???? SOMBEBODY PLEASE DO SOMETHING.

  100. ReggieRex says:

    So I’m actually suprisingly okay with Kris winning. Don’t get me wrong, I am probably one of Adam’s biggest fans, but I really like Kris too. He’s my little monkey boy. That said, we all know that Adam should have won, and would have if there weren’t so many people who were completely homophobic. Adam may or may not be gay, however many people will not vote for anyone that they even suspect to be gay, even going so far as to vote for the other person to ensure that the “gay” person will not win. We all also know that Gucky told all his fans to vote for Kris to “finish his work” and made repeated digs at Adam’s sexuality to sway those that sexuality matters to. Personally I think that Adam is the true winner, no matter what the votes say.

    Oh and before I forget to say it, Adam definitely performed the best last night and the night before. Wth rod stewart (Adam, I do think you’re sexy and I do want your body), with KISS (AAAAAAH!!! He totally got the best musical guest!!!), that Sam Cook song (*swoon*), in “Rock Star”, and basically all the other performances. I was so glad that he chose to sing Mad World. It was my absolute favorite.

    I don’t care if Adam is gay or not, I totally want to have his babies! Uh oh, now I’m starting to sound like a creepy fan girl, so I’ll stop now.

    I will buy ALL of Adam’s albums. I love him, his voice, his eyes, his body, his face, his BLACK NAIL POLISH AND GUYLINER (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!), and basically everything else about him. He has a faithful fan in me forever.

  101. I want cd only adam is the best for ever

  102. mdegraffen says:

    The good thing about this is that now Adam will not be the creature of 19 Entertainment that Kris will be. He will not be shaped and molded to present an acceptable corporate image. He’s too original and has too much integrity to allow that to happen. He’s going to be fine and so will we when we buy his first CD!

  103. MusicMan says:

    This show is a complete joke for real. I truly cannot believe Adam Lambert lost to this kid. It’s like comparing a pebble to a sparkling diamond. Kris Allen is quite boring actually. There are a million artists like him. As stated before I believe all the twelve year olds stayed up past their bed time or had mommy & daddy vote for them. Clearly Adam vocally and charisma wise wwas the better performer. I am finished with this merican Idol show fo real. I will look forward to Adam’s cd and support him. I think he is just starting to soar. Everything happens for a reason, he doesn’t need the stupid AI title at least people seen his talent and someone, very soon will sign him.

  104. AdamWon says:

    I feel really sad and empty this morning. Real American Idol did not get the crown yesterday. I know he will be successful and everything but I would be so happy to hear Adams name as the winner last night. What a joke! If results can be manipulated like that, why to watch AI at all.

  105. no matter what happened yesterday, Adam is still a winner to me. i mean i’m from Spain and , I’ve never wached american idol before at the moment i saw adam’s ring of fire on tv ( i’ve got american channels) i knew he was gonna be a legend and my favourite idol af all times. i’m still in a really big shock after yesterday’s results coz i have never been so sure about a thing i have been telling myself that adam was gonna win, but kris did. but i’m gonna be happy if adam gets to do a concert in Barcelona and i still want Kris to enjoy his life from now on, i think he’s a really great and honest guy.
    GO ADAM!!!! YOU ROCK (L)

  106. Lets all try to take a deep breath, because we all totally know that at the end of the day that Kris is an above average local bar singer and nothing more then that. In some form or fashion this was payback for all the stuff that has gone on in the past 6 months. How could this country be rep. by possibly a gay AI star. I am sure we all will never watch idol ever again, because of their actions and it is all just stupid, because we all know Adam is far better then KA.. KA 15 mins of fame the clock is ticking and will be over once the tour is over. Lets face it no one is going to want him, like we know everyone is going to want to work with Adam. This really helps to make that happen earlier and easier.

    This is a blessing in disguise, because Adam is much more free and not under that stupid contract and we don’t have to listen to that stupid song that Kara wrote on Adam’s Album.What an insult and did you catch Paula just talking about it on Idol Tonight. She was pissed that she was the only one left to say anything and now it leaves room for another incredible song from Adam.

    Lets all not forget that Adam will be literally towering totally over the winner in every fashion for the next two days of their press tour. This is all just so stupid, because we know who the real winner was! That’s are main man Adam. Kris will have to live with this the rest of his life that the church vote him in, because they couldn’t handle the other option.

    If their is even a final next year, I bet Adam will be on tour with his new band not able to attend and Kris won’t have enough money to buy the ticket from AR to CA to make the final. That is how much their careers are going to be. Adam will be the Mega Star and Kris will be lucky if someone comes to the local bar to hear him play.

    I can’t believe that result!! Won’t be able to watch the show until tonight & tomorrow as in UK,Adam is already well on his way to global superstardom and I have no doubt that he will have a brilliant career ahead. Can’t wait to buy his C.D’s e.t.c!

    Adam, you are one in a million and we love you loads.xxxxxxx

  108. AdamFan52 says:

    I knew it was going to go to Kris because of the blogs saying how Kris fans were planning this big tech blitz for the finale, plus with most of Danny supporters probably going Kris’ way. It is really a shame because on shear talent, Adam is the clear winner. I won’t go to any Kris concerts…. he truly bores me. Nice singer, but there are lots of “nice” singers out there. Adam is the bomb and I will be going to any concerts he has if I am able. I haven’t gone to a concert in years, but Adam will change that for me! I will buy anything he puts out!! I agree…. let’s keep it positive and make sure Adam is the next superstar of the world!
    I agree with the idea of limiting the voting… would make for a more fair representation, but then, how does one compete with the screaming little girls of the world??? And, AI couldn’t brag on the number of votes that came in.
    I voted a lot, but was really ticked when my votes were registered to either Danny or Kris. That happened at least 15 times. You can’t chalk it up to mis-dialing because I was on redial and I got the correct line for Adam on each side of those calls doing the same method. I was angry and figured it was rigged at that point.

    But so it goes….. ADAM IS THE BOMB!!!! He is the first musical artist to excite me in a very long time!!

  109. AdamFan52 says:

    AND CAN YOU BELIEVE THE MUSICIANS WHO CAME TO THE IDOL STAGE???? I don’t think in a million years would SLASH!!, KISS!!, Carlos Santana, QUEEN!!! set foot on Idol stage if it hadn’t been for Adam. I am probably missing some, but that was HUGE!! Jamie Foxx only came to promote himself… I was not impressed….

  110. Guys, Adam is the winner from the start, he is the only contestant that everyone, all over the world talds about, he has more music downloaded from i-tunes, he had the greatest adoration and applause from the audience, he has achieved what he set out to achieve and that is to be known all over the world, he is the champion, he will have more success in his musical career then any other contestant. But, who do you think the real winners are? BMG Sony, they realised right from the start that Adam is unique, very talented, he can sell records, he is iconic, he has reached a larger age range then the others who will fade quite quickly. BMG Sony will sign both artist, they are both different, but Adam is ready now to start recording, he will sell millions of records, they will make money. It is unfair that America, not all, but the few who decided to use religion to draw in votes (adn this is not the meaning of christianity) because they are small minded have not rightly given their vote to Adam. I felt really bad last then the results were announced, I watched everything live on my PC in London, I could not sleep afterwards, I felt ashamed to be part of the human race when the few decide to give such an unfair treatment to such a talented and nice person as Adam. Now, thinking about everything, he is the winner, he has been the winner from the start, all the others know this, BMG knows this, Adam does not need the title, Adam now is an ICONIC ROCK GOD.

  111. sorry for my english 🙂

  112. AdamRocks! says:

    Just checked out The Official Adam website, AdamOfficial.com. . . and gave a shout-out over there to Adam-Lambert.org.

    • Yeah continue to advertise this site. Just want you to know that the website of Kris was not that popular and most viewed than Adam. He only have few comments than Adam. Now, this is just so evident how far Adam can go in the long run

  113. lucky1877 says:

    Adam is the absolute best that AI has ever seen. I was really disappointed last night, but seeing Adam in his post show interview really raised my spirits. He is one class act! I’m so excited about his future. I know he will be great in whatever he chooses to do. If you can keep us posted about any appearances Adam might be making that would be great. I am a fan for life! Best of luck Adam to you and your family! XOXO

  114. adam if you see that i want you to know that my heart and many other hearts are broken hear in israel. we love u so much and support you no matter what for us you are the superstar.
    and a big radio state in i your isreal transmit your songs all day.

    love you adam

  115. Thanx!! Someone understands me!!!! I was crying soooooooooooo hard last night and I really think Adam will sell wayyyyyyy more rcords. Chris maybe was… okaaaaaaaay, but Adam is the REAL DEAL!!! He deserved it, Adam reallllllllllly deserves it. Thanx for the positiveness

  116. mdegraffen says:

    FYI – Record Deals – Fron USA Today –
    “While CKX, the entertainment marketing firm that controls the rights to most Idol business ventures, will exercise its option to sign record deals with Allen and Lambert, CKX chief Robert F.X. Sillerman says, “I would not be surprised if … we signed more than two.”

  117. Kristie says:

    WTF…Kris wins….HELLOOO America, what the hell were you thinking.. Adam will always be an idol whether from this show or not. He should have won. This is only the beginning for him. Like Paula said the other night Adam will be iconic. He IS the next Elvis. We love you Adam

  118. Redsetter says:

    So, the spin seems to be no one is disappointed, everyone wins, look at the two of us getting along……if that’s the case, why am I still CRYING?!

    • GlamGirlLee says:

      I don’t know. I am trying to be rational about this and move on because I never thought much of AI. I am still pretty bummed and disappointed, and keep coming to this site for support. I am sure someone can see the tracks of MY tears!

  119. adamfan66 says:

    I am so upset that Adam didn’t win the title of american idol. He so deserved it. Kris is a nice guy and a good performer,but no where near the singer and performer that Adam is. I am a grandmother and a senior citizen and I never felt as excited about watching a performer like Adam since Elvis. He touched the lives of young and old, and brought excitement and joy into our lives. And I believe in my heart he will continue to do so for many years to come. Please do not be upset with Kris because I think he knows that Adam should have won instead of him. He said so himself. Let us keep on supporting Adam by buying his albums and going to his concerts. Let us show him that he is our world idol. Love you Adam and God bless you.

  120. whatever. I LOVE YOU FOREVER ADAM!!!!

  121. I posted this a couple of other places. It’s my take on what happened last night.

    There’s something I’d really like to say about the symbolism of an Adam win. Symbols bear great societal importance. We rely on them as a species to convey connectivity; how we think and feel. Words become unnecessary. Communication with a glance. We are visual creatures after all. Adam represented the outré – society’s margins – a place he’d occupied most of his young life. He was the fat kid in school – into the arts. Oddball, unusual – definitely not mainstream. He was castigated for it – as all who march to that different drummer often are. Just watch his graduation video. There he is – that incredible voice soaring to heaven – and when the camera pans across the stage or into the audience – you see his classmates talking behind their hands and snickering. Adam was a joke.

    So here he is, 10 years later – a fabulous creature of his own design. That glorious voice honed to perfection. He was ready. But America was still in high school, still snickering behind their hands. Elect the gay kid class president? Not on your life! But more than that – more than rejecting someone so beautiful he made your heart ache – underlying the rejection was a truck load of fear. Why? Because Adam was a symbol; a great rainbow flag announcing America had changed. If Adam Lambert had won American Idol in spite of being gay and Jewish – then others who existed on society’s margins might try and step forward into the light as well. And we’d be forced to reckon with them – to take them seriously. That’s why this was important – why it went beyond one supremely talented performer. Adam Lambert would have won for all the disenfranchised. There’s your symbol. America’s first openly gay Idol.

    And Adam’s win would have been a legitimate one – not manufactured as some kind of comfit or an appeasement to silence loud voices. The man’s madly talented – a true superstar. Now I’m not saying Kris Allen isn’t talented, or under other circumstances (such as an Adamless Idol) wouldn’t deserve the win. He is; truly – he just doesn’t compare to Adam. No one on that stage did. Adam was and is in a class by himself. So his not winning (despite all that talent), points to other things – especially when you look at all the fear-driven hysteria of the last few days. I’m not saying Bill O’Reilly’s hit piece was solely responsible; but when you couple it with all the other anti-gay, heavily political folderol that accompanied it – a pattern emerges. I live in the south. In my area – some local DJ’s exhorted listeners to not vote for the gay guy. They didn’t even mention Kris by name – just hated on Adam. Ever since his ‘Ring of Fire’ performance – Adam has been regularly dissed on local radio. From what I’ve heard – a few local churches spoke out against him as well. Danny Gokey’s pastor wasn’t the only preacher to bring religion into the mix. As many people voted against Adam as for Kris.

    So Adam’s loss is devastating for a multiplicity of reasons. I’m heartbroken. He really deserved that win – not just for his fans – but because it would have stood for something. In a way – Adam represented anyone who felt disenfranchised. That’s added an extra layer of unhappiness over the whole thing. He lost for reasons other than singing. I cannot tell you how sad that makes me feel.

    • ReggieRex says:

      I completely and totally agree with you. I think Americans need to get their heads out of their asses and realize that gay people are just that. PEOPLE. It is horrible that someones sexuality can prevent someone from winning a title that they rightfully deserve.

  122. AdamisDabest says:

    I’M SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO UPSET RIGHT NOW I HAD TO CRY MYSELF TO SLEEP YESTERDAY I’M SOOO MAD ADAM SHOULD HAVE WON I DID’NT EVEN WANT TO FINISH WATCHING THE SHOW THAT’S HOW MAD I WAS RIGHT WHEN THEY SAID KRIS’S NAME I LOCKED MYSELF IN MY ROOM AND CRYED THE WHOLE NIGHT KRIS CAN SUCK IT I L.O.V.E ADAM HE WAS THE MOST TALENTED IDOL I’VE EVER SEEN HE’S AMAZING WAYYYYYYYYYYY BETTER THEN KRIS ME AND MY “DAD” WANTED HIM TOO WIN MY MOM WANTED KRIS TOO WIN AND WHEN SHE FOUND OUT THAT KRIS WON SHE THREW IT IN MY FACE I WAS SOOOOOOO MAD I HATE KRIS ADAM IS THE BEST AND HE’LL ALWAYS BE THE BEST AND AMERICAN IDOL

    BETTERXD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ADAM FOREVER GO ADAM YOU ROCKXD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  123. when i heard the results, i stood there for a minute with my jaw dropped. then, when adam was cheering on for kris, i cried- a lot. i was so mad at america, and i couldnt believe that adam lost over kris allen.

  124. What? Huh? Are you freakin’ kidding me!?! There is no way Adam Lambert could have lost to Kris Allen. I was surprised when Kris made it into the top 2. But now that he has won, i am convinced that there is a mistake, a hacker, a miscount or something.

    ADAM GOT SCREWED!!!!

    • AdamAddict says:

      What are you talikng about? Adam didn’t lost. He won! Adam is the winner!

  125. Adam was the true Idol for a lot of us and will remain that way. Adam is going to have the big sells and HUGE career. He has obtained a great set of fans already and it will just become stronger now. We need to all stand by Adam, however, I believe that he will come out the better and bigger winner cuz I know for a fact that someone is going to pick him up and he is worth a lot more than a million!!!
    Rock on Adam and know that you have a fan for life!! I can’t wait for the first Album

  126. It felt so personal to me. I was soooooo sad because I knew Adam wanted this win. His family wanted this win. We wanted this win. Gay people wanted this win – just for validation. For once, validation. Adam was actually the underdog in my opinion because of the gay looming over him. Once again, it doen’st matter how great, or how talented, or how sincere, or how much ya give – it’s just not good enough. But you know what – in the end he did win – he won the most because he will be soooooooooo huge. So bigger than life. I for one will go to an Adam Lambert concert. I cannot wait to watch where you go Adam Lambert! Feel proud because you are a STAR! I’m sending all the love your way babe!

  127. GUYS CHECK THIS OUT!!! MTV’S GREATEST AMERICAN IDOLS LIST: Guess who is in it 🙂 of course!

  128. The Legend says:

    Adam is very positive in moving on. What is unfortunate is that most media, people in the music business and fans across the country recognize Adam as the true talent and Idol. The realization that American Idol has become a voting and home state contest and not an assessment of singing talent was made clear by AT & T’s statistic disclosure this morning.

    AT & T CONFIRMED FROM THEIR DATA THAT 38 MILLION VOTES CAME FROM ARKANSAS. THE POPULATION OF ARKANSAS IS ABOUT 2.8 MILLION.
    THEY WERE USING GIZMO AND DIAL IDOL SOFTWARE TECHNOLOGY.

    One Arkansas church group of 150 people said they got in 436,655 votes using the software and their texts. This is not American Idol as voted by millions, this is a few hundred thousand people trained in one state skewing the results (plus the Gokey fans).

    AI IS NO LONGER A TALENT/SINGING CONTEST, THIS IS A REGIONAL VOTING AND TECHNOLOGY CONTEST.

    Kris admitted “Adam deserved this” He heard afterwards about the voting and technology training in Arkansas. He did not want to win that way.

    The reason Simon did not stand clapping with the other judges is because he knew America made a mistake and the voting had gotten skewed.

    And last, remember that Elvis lost a talent contest in Mississippi before he became a recording artist. Adam is our American Idol, Kris is an Arkansas Idol

  129. I COULDN’T TALK UNTIL TODAY AT NOON ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED TO ADAM. WHEN I FIRST SAW THAT THE OTHER GUY (I CAN’T EVEN SAY HIS HAME) WON, I GOT UP AND WENT TO MY ROOM AND CRIED. I WAS SO DEPRESSED BECAUSE MY HEART WAS SCREAMING THINKING THAT IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN ADAM.

    THE ONLY THING THAT MADE ME FEEL SOMEWHAT BETTER WAS THAT THE OTHER GUY WILL BE TIED UP FOR A YEAR WITH AI WHILE ADAM SEEKS OUT AND SECURES HIS CAREER IN FULL FORCE. I’M NOT WORRIED THAT ADAM WILL HAVE ANY PROBLEM BECOMING A SUPERSTAR BECAUSE HE WILL. THE OTHER GUY WILL HAVE HIS YEAR AND THE PUBLIC WILL GIVE HIM HIS RECOGNITION DURING THAT YEAR, BUT AFTER THAT, HE’LL FADE AWAY AND WILL BE “FORGETABLE” AS SIMON SAID TO HIM ONCE.

    IT’S SIMPLY UNFORTUNATE THAT RELIGION AND THE RIGHT TO EXPRESS ONESELF IN AMERICA CAN BE SO SCEWED AND CONTROLLED BY PEOPLE THAT FAIL TO SEE THAT THIS WAS NOT A PISSING CONTEST BUT A CONTEST OF TALENT. AND ADAM HAD MORE TALENT IN HIS PINKY FINGER THEN THE OTHER GUY ANY DAY, ANY TIME, FOR ALL TIME WOULD BE CAST ASIDE FOR HIS PERSONAL VIEWS, PERSONALITY, AND FREEDOM TO EXPRESS HIMSELF.

    WHAT A SHAME THAT AMERICA WOULD PUT BLINDERS ON AND PRETEND THEY DON’T HEAR THE MOST TALENTED AND WONDERFUL VOICE THAT AI HAS EVER, EVER HAD ON ANY SEASON. I WILL ALWAYS SUPPORT ADAM .

    I AM CONSIDERING BOYCOTTING NEXT YEAR’S AI AS PUNISHMENT.

    GO ADAM. YOU ARE IN OUR HEARTS AND AS A BIRD SOARS, SO WILL YOU IN THE INDUSTRY. I LOVE YOU,.

    LANI

  130. OMG I DEFINITELY AGREE WITH THE WHOLE KRIS WILL BE LIKE TAYLOR HICKS! ADAM WILL BE THE DAUGHTRY! GAH, I WAS SO MAD KRIS WON BUT ADAM WILL STILL DO SOOOOOO MUCH BETTER OVERALL. =) GO ADAM!

  131. Like many of you, I feel like crying when I think about last night’s results. I thought the finale was off the hook, but the fact that Adam didn’t win really took away the show’s shine. I think Kris is good and really sweet and agree that he improved a lot over the course of the season. But come on now, he’s no Adam. Not even close.

    I got so invested in the show this year because of what Adam brought to it. I so looked forward to his amazing weekly performances. And, I voted for him — last week and Tuesday night — because I thought he really deserved to win.

    Adam, baby, I’m so gonna miss you, but I’m willing to buy your CDs, go to your concerts, and pay at least for a ticket $200 to see you star in a rock opera written just for you. XOXOXOXO

  132. heleneatkinson says:

    I am still numb and confused and don’t see that changing anytime soon. How can the most talented reality TV star to have ever graced the stage not win the show? Maybe it is the draw of the underdog. Kris needed the win more than Adam did, I’ve been guilty in the past for voting in that way. However much we love the underdog in the UK, there comes a time when you have to put that aside and vote for the best contestant, Adam wins that title hands down.
    Well let Kris have the title, Adam will have the huge international career.

  133. Sweeet, , you can go on kissonline.com , and read more on Kiss and Adam in concert. Adam will do well, just keep loading up those itunes. Support Adam like crazy.

  134. AI has lost it and its gona go down the drain next season coz raaised the bar so high(in the sky)in originality,performance,style…..every thing…no one dead or alive can compete with that…i certainly will stop watching american idol

  135. lagenii says:

    My heart aches for Adam. The fact that many people are still so narrow minded shows that we still have a long way to go. Adam never shows any attitude when judges criticized him. Adam always thank the band after each performance. He is always attentive to whoever is “on” with him. When he performed with Allison, he looks at Allison when she sings. When he does interview with Kris he looks at Kris when Kris talks. I don’t love every single performance he gave and I don’t necessary agree with his lifestyle but I think he is a perfect role model for my child because he has more respect for others than many of us. I think about the struggles they go through growing up finding they are gay. I am happy for Adam that he accepts who he is and does not live in a shadow. I voted for Adam and my 8 year-old girl voted for Kris but she also said “Adam is too good for AI.” A child knows better…

    For those who judge Adam base on anything other than talent…

    In Adam’s words: “I think Kris won because he’s a great artist,” he said.
    “[Kris and I] are so seemingly different but we found a common bond, not just through music, but through talking. Our goal [tonight] was to bring you guys together, not separate you.” (LA Times)

  136. I feel as though someone very close to me has died! I cannot stop crying.Its almost 5pm where I am and I’m just waking up!Couldn’t face the day….took sleeping pills and just slept all day! I for one cannot move on until something is done to right this wrong!

    I was told by an online friend,that religious groups and churches were actively campaigning for Kris and against Adam,cause he was gay.Most of these people that were involved never watched AI or even heard Kris or Adam sing! They just knew Adam was gay and Kris wasn’t.Some churches even went as far as to give out Kris’ numbers to call Tuesday at their Sunday service!!! Unfortunately,I have no proof of this….my contact will not send me the info I need cause she is afraid she will be exposed and her friends and family are very active in the church.

    The title of American Idol belongs to Adam….it was stolen from him and I will do everything in my power to find the proof I need,no matter how long it takes! And when I do I am going to the press with it and exposing Kris and all the religious freaks for the hating homo-phobes they really are!

    We all should go to the summer shows and protest! Make t-shirts/signs on it saying that the REAL American Idol is Adam,NOT Kris! When Kris is on stage…do not cheer/clap for him.In fact stand up and turn your back on him the whole time he is on stage!

    Write Idol,FOX,19 Entertainment,etc.Go where there are TV cameras and wear a shirt or carry a sign protesting! If the press will talk to you…talk to them….tell them about the conspiracy against Adam!

    IF WE MOVE ON AND LET THIS GO…..WE HAVE FAILED ADAM!!! FIGHT FOR OUR MAN….DON’T EVER FORGET WHAT HAPPENED LAST NIGHT!!!

  137. I think there has to be a serious examination of the voting system used and a total revamp. It should be one man (woman), one vote – period. Also, a report of what votes came where and how the states voted per county. Abnormalities can then be looked for.

    Also, the 38 million votes out of Arkansas is simply not possible unless there was some major phone phreaking/hacking going on. Look at it this way, a state with 1% of the population controlled 38% of the vote. AT&T have confirmed that in Arkansas they were giving out phones at major events and lessons how to make multiple text votes (Power Voting) for Kris.

    Does that even sound remotely fair? One Vote per person. Done.

    Demand a new and fair transparent voting system.

    • At&T denied the rumor that 38million votes came from Arkansas. it’s not true.

  138. Anonymoose says:

    There you all are! I just googled “Adam Lambert” and found this site.

  140. Me enganche desde el principio con Adam por su forma de cantar y porq me encanta el rock.
    He pasado semana a semana esperando escucharlo y que pase a la siguiente.
    Ayer cuando supe que perdio me parecio gracioso que haya gente tan tonta que le guste Kriss Allen con razon votaron por Bush en algun momento.!!!!!
    Yo se que Adam tiene el talento pero no se que sera de el si no logra ser exitoso como artista vendemillones de discos pero si no encontrara definitivamente algo en que ser el mejor.
    Yo vi la tercera temporada de Idol y me parecio mas o menos luego vi la quinta y me enganche pero a quien yo apoyaba salio y me dolio tanto que jure no volver a ver y asi lo hice hasta que escuche a Adam.
    Personalmente pienso que el hecho de que le gustara a tanta gente y sobre todo al jurado molesto tanto a cierto idiotas que solo votaron por Allen porque su gusto no esta orientado a lo que el hace o lo que es o como es sino por el aprecio que generan los debiles, a veces.

  141. Following Adam’s gracious actions, I will congratulate Kris Allen on his win.

    That said, I want to go on record saying in all my long years, I have seen few as talented as Adam Lambert. I have been lucky enough to witness Sinatra, Judy Garland, the Beatles and Pavarotti and Adam Lambert is in their class.

    I want to thank this site for bringing us together as we are a diverse group of all ages and walks of life who appreciate an extraordinary talent like Adam. I am grieving today, but I know in my heart that there is no stopping the energy that has come unleashed. Adam has it all going on for him. He is beyond smokin’ hot in every way. He is capable of being beautiful, angelic, devilish, incredibly handsome and all that wrapped up in a charming, articulate, intelligent package. He is clearly comfortable in his skin, has an enviable work ethic and has been raised right by a loving family who serve as excellent role models for other parents.

    Adam has charisma, a singing voice that comes along every hundred years or so and looks that could rival Leo Di Caprio or Brad Pitt. I think this is a person who could excell in films, concerts, recordings and anything else he chooses to put his mind to. He and Allison are the most talented people to come out of Idol, I have no doubt of that.

    I want for Adam to take some time to absorb all our love. We believe in you. Think of Idol as an asset on your resume along with all the other projects you have been involved in over the years learning your craft. Contemplate all the offers which will come your way; make no hasty or emotional decisions and know, deep in your heart, that we are here for you. Waiting for your CDs, those compelling concerts and all the artistic endeavors you take on. We are your solid fanbase. We recognize what a gift you are and how superbly talented you are. Relax, finish your obligation to the Idol tour and then come back to us. I think I speak for all of us when I say we will be the wind beneath your fabulous wings. Make your first CD and we will show you how much we admire and respect you.

    Thank you for giving it your all each week. You were the only reason I watched Idol. I was channel surfing and there you were singing Black or White and I knew right then and there how extraordinary you are.

    Blessings, health and good fortune to you, Adam Lambert.

  142. Stephanie says:

    I saw the same parallel between this Season and Season 2. I loved Ruben and his smooth, Luther voice but there was something about Clay and still is. I figured Ruben was going to win, but I was hoping that Clay would. The same thing here with Adam, though I think my Season 2 experience steeled me for another disappointment.

    I’m not worried about Adam’s career. Clay’s mushroomed by the fierce loyalty of his fans (I’m included). EVERYONE knows Adam and I think a lot of people will be eager to see what he comes up with. Sit back, relax and enjoy the long ride in front of us. It’s going to be fun! Adam is absolutely AWESOME!!!

  143. Good job Adam! We all know that you are a brilliant singer, performer, and artist. You sounded amazing last night with KISS and Queen, it just shows your extreme talent and star power. I love how we can always pick out your strong voice in group performances also. I wanted you to win American Idol for validation of your talent and America’s recognition of that, but I do think it is better that you didn’t. Go out and make an amazing album the way you want it to be and your fans will make it known that you are a superstar! I hope you do projects with bands like Queen, movies, and your own solo music! I can’t wait to see you at the Grammy’s winning big! Congrats! We love you!

  144. WE LOVE U ADAM!!!

    I have to say that I was initially devastated and couldn’t sleep (tossing & turning).
    Felt so down all day but then I saw the bright side!

  145. Adam-my-Idol says:

    I read every single comment in this site to help me to calm down but it’s not happening. The only thing would make feel better would be if Adam came to me with a hug saying that he’s happy.
    I’m so dissapointed of AI show. They were supposed to make sure that their voting rules were followed but they failed to us. Nobody should watch that show ever again because of his lack of credibility. I wish I could return my ticket AI tour concert and wait till Adam goes solo but that’s not possible. I’ll go and support Adam all the way. I’m tired of reading in other blogs that America chose wrong. I don’t think this result is a good represantion of all America as a nation. This is just a represantion of one state and a group of narrow-minded people still leaving in the old era.
    I’m so grateful to God that gave us Adam to light up our lives with good music and soul. We, Adam fans will support him buying all his iTunes songs, albums, concerts, etc ADAM FOREVER!!!!

      The voting issue has been there since the first season. AI loves to report the “new record” of votes each week. They’re not going to change that, no matter how many times Simon or someone else says that “America got it wrong”. It’s been 8 seasons. It is what it is and for that, I think it does take away from the title of “Winner of American Idol”. The show is doing it to itself.

      Fortunately, we are being exposed to gifted, talented singers and performers such as Adam and this has been a vehicle for many of the unknowns to become known. I guess it’s 6 of one, a half dozen of another.

  146. It’s a Mad World.

    Adam, you’ve got a Whole Lotta Love and you can clearly see the Tracks of our Tears. We Can’t Get No Satisfaction! If We Can’t Have You, We Don’t Want Nobody, Baby. We’re not Feelin’ Good right this minute, we’re Cryin’. But things are never Black and White and we’re already deep in this Ring of Fire for you. You were Born to be Wild and believe One thing, A Change is Gonna Come.

    i am from venezuela…all the people here love adam…

    Last nights’ “Shock Heard ‘Round The World” definitely reminds me of the Clay Aiken losing to Rubin debacle from season 2. Clay went on to set sales records, filling Arenas all over the country, with ten to twenty thousand screaming Clay fans!!! Clay had 5 times more fans and applause than Kelly Clarkson on their Independence Tour which they co-highlighted together.

    Adam is an even greater talent than Clay, with a far broader audience and fanship ready to be launched into orbit with the release of his CD and subsequent tour.

    To the stars ADAM!!!!!

    This is the first time today that I have even gone near my PC. I like Chris. He seems like a nice kid, but He is not for me, not my type of music and is not Adam. I LOST it when Queen came out last night. All season long, all I asked was for Adam to do a Freddy song. I was sitting on the floor(my usual position whenever Adam would appear), last night when the two began singing “We are the Champions” Had I have been in my right mind and not, at that time, sobbing with joy , I would have gotten the hint that Queen was going to accompany them. And that’s when it happened. To me, the unimaginable. I turned my eyes to the screen and there he was Brian May. And there THEY were. QUEEN. I let out such a scream that the( non-Adams’ fans) all over the state surely must have ran for cover. There was our Adam live and performing with one of his favorite, if not THE favorite bands of all time! What he must have felt at that moment only he knows. But for me, that was MY moment. ADAM is my Rock Idol, and Freddy would have been proud. *Oh, and “Bohemian Rhapsody” never counted, as it was only an audition song* 🙂

  150. Just to show the relevance, the following people haven’t won the title “American Idol” either:

    Freddie Mercury
    Rod Stewart
    Bono
    Celine Dionne
    Frank Sinatra
    Elvis Presley
    Robert Plant
    Chris Issak
    Stevie Wonder
    Prince
    Johnny Cash
    Mick Jagger
    John Lennon
    Sting
    Bruce Springsteen
    …and a few others….

      YUP !!! 100000 % Agreed
      it’s just a title and the winner being vote base on their religion or sexual life not base on their talent, but the world will chose base on their talent

      so go ADAM !!!! u are the most talented guy that ever comes in the American Idol show, finally this show produce a STAR not just an ordinary singer.

  151. Christina says:

    This is so completely wrong. I’m from New Zealand and the show is airing here in about four hours, but I found out about the result this morning and I am completely devastated. There is absolutely no doubt that Adam is in a league of his own that not a single contestant that ever graced the Idol stage could even dream about competing with. Really, this just goes to show how many IDIOTS there are living in the USA – no offence to you guys who were faithful to the end. You are the enlightened few. I’m talking about all the teenage girls who voted for Kris because he was “good-looking” (not that Adam doesn’t look like a GOD), and the ultra-conservative homophobic arseholes that voted to prevent a gay winner, not to mention the rumoured 36 million Arkansas votes. What the fuck? God, I am so so depressed about this. I will remain always faithful to Adam. We all know that he is the TRUE Idol.

  152. debolisa says:

    well some peoples in America thinks that Kris is more deserve the IDOL title but I do believe that Adam is “The Future World Super Star”

    GO ADAM !!!! I love u ’cause u amaze me with your talent and thank you very much from the bottom of my heart ’cause u making me so happy while watching your performances and I will be missing u so muchhh

    LOVE YA

  153. I sense that mainstream America doesn’t know how to appreciate original and unique artists like Adam. Popular music in the current generation has always embraced bland, boring, and stereotypical musicians like John Mayer, Jason Mraz, tons of other similar folk pop musicans with slightly above mediocre voice, and now Kris Allen. I am glad that Adam is different from mainstream music because I stop listening to it on the radio for over a decade. Adam stirs emotion in his songs, creates controversies, and challenge people’s minds with his out of the world style of performance, unique interpretation, and powerful voice. I wish him the very best. At least by losing, Adam has to feel good that he doesn’t have to own and sing that awful song “No Boundaries” on his first album, which ironically is an example of what mainstream music is about.

  154. Hans Walitzki says:

    Congratulations Adam!

    Thanks for rekindling my love for Rock/Pop
    After Metallica killed Napster I reaolved to not buy any CD’s any more.Now I find I’ve spent $$$ on iTunes for Adam’s songs (and some of Allison’s)….
    Adam gave me a reason to listen again to many tunes I had forgotten.
    I actually liked Adam’s interpretation better!
    The good news is that Adam does not have to do the dreadful “No Boundaroes” single now.
    I’m looking forward to his new work.
    Adam will be morw successful than any other AI contestant.
    Just wait and listen.

  155. Jessforlambert says:

    Adam is the greatest ever… im from Malaysia and I really think that Adam deserve to win. I am sure will buy his Album and hope to hear from him soon… Adam! We from Malaysia will support you all the way!! Good luck!!

  156. raven_JM says:

    I am disappointed by the results… Really disappointed… But it’s just a title!! I’m starting to move on now… I know that he will be in the music industry for many long years!! He’s got the “it” factor to stay very long in this industry!! He is the runner-up who is better than the champion!!!

    FINAL PERFORMANCE NIGHT: 2 out 3 performances bested the Kris Allen… SIMON to KRIS: “You’re only highlight was the first song…”

    FINAL RESULTS SHOW: He was the bomb!!!

  157. Musicalgal says:

    I agree that Adam was robbed but Kris is sweet and he really could have never been the American Idol if AR had not kind of cheated. I voted myself for 4 hours for Adam, of course. Adam is the most talented that has ever graced the stage of the American Idol. That’s what American Idol is all about. Koodos to Adam, Allison, and Kris. We would never have known who any of them are in this season or past seasons. They now can go on and make their music. I support American Idol because unknown singers that are really talented get known even the top 36. Like Ace Young and Elliot Y. said they are really all winners. Adam is not saddled with all the AI rules. He does not have to do Kara’s song. He can get off tour and start bringing us his music. Adam’s musical artistry is what we all want to see and hear. Adam is so talented I cannot wait till he gets his CDs and Videos out there for all of us to enjoy forever. He is one great showman and artist. Do you know how lucky we all are because his castemates pushed him to try out for American Idol? Yes ADAM LAMBERT is the American Idol 2009 regardless of what spot he landed in – we all know it. The world knows it. GO ADAM GO BRING FORTH THAT TALENT FOR THE WORLD TO SEE. Love you Adam – God Bless you and take care. Have a great Idol Tour experience.

  158. Summercandy says:

    38 MILLION VOTES from arkansas? thats arkansas idol not american idol! something should be done about this whole ridiculous voting system. how are others to vote when certain groups are using comp tech to actually vote in bulk? i dun think san diegans wil vote like that considering they see celebrities almost everyday. but they’ll buy albums!i hope kris wil be able to even sell that many copies of his album in arkansas alone.adam should have won if not for all this BS and the gokey fans who just didnt want adam to win! wth? yet,its done. adam is a worldwide star. he should do a world tour! can’t wait for his albums and concerts. adam all the way!!

    • AdamAddict says:

      Nobody know the %? But I heard that the whole Kris hometown voted for him and with this church thing??!! And about Danny’s fans that don’t want Adam to win, I already knew that a long time ago. I felt this was unfair somehow because they think Adam is not good enough to be an idol to youngsters so they were like anti Adam??!!.But to all of us, Adam is the winner and I still tell people that when I was asked 🙂

      • AdamAddict says:

        YEAH 38M VOTES FROM 2.8M PEOPLE,RIGHT?
        THEY ARE SUPPORTIVE NEIGHBOR,I GUESS!
        I’M YOUR FRIENDLY NEIGHBORHOOD KRIS ALLEN,PLEASE VOTE FOR ME! LOL!!
        I THINK THE % WAS NOT EVEN CLOSE,KRIS PROBABLY WON BIG.THAT 38% JUST FROM HIS HOMETOWN AND PLUS HIS FANS NOT FROM THERE AND DANNY’S FAN. MAYBE THAT’S WHY FOX KEPT IT SILENCE OR PEOPLE WON’T JUST BELIEVE WHAT THEY GOING TO HEAR.
        BUT I’M OVER IT NOW SINCE ADAM & KRIS LOOK VERY CLOSE FRIEND AND HOW POSITIVE ADAM IS.
        I JUST HATE CLAY EIKEN NOW!
        AND LOVE ADAM FOREVER!

    • Yes, something is going to be done alright. I’m never watching AI again.

  159. Evonne.T says:

    Hey guys!

    Be honestly. I am Chinese girl and from China !!
    I used to dont left comments ……
    But I was pretty shocked and when I heard Kris is won. my mouth is dropped off
    OMG!! Im so pissed!! I cant even focus on my work all day long..
    you know, I was woke so early morning on 13 May (China is 12-15hrs ahead to US) and waiting the show ends.
    I cant watch that show on tv LIVE,even in HongKong. so I used to download week by week,
    Adam is AMAZING!!! I cant even have words to explain!! AWESOME!!
    HE WILL BE THE WINNER ALL THE WAY NO MATTER WHAT!!! ROCK THE WORLD!!!
    I was spent hours to watching over and over every single performances of Adam

    Well. Kris is won, Kris to me,,, yeah, he is good looking and the boy next door to played well the damn guitar, probably make people like him or something to voted him.
    But I changed my mind when he said” Adam DESERVED it…also said: looking for to be a good hunsband,,,, said to his wife “we can be married blah blah blah……..”
    AWWW COME ON!!! if he wants to be a good hunsband why go to AI !!???why said Adam deserved it if he doesnt care about the crown.
    why does he just save his ass stay home with his wife and play the church thing.
    make no sense to me AT ALL!!
    Everytime I watch the shows Im just so sick about his jaw-thing way to singing,….
    I dont know, I just dont like him, its not the personal,but the big deal is what he saying when he knows he is the winner,besides, he doesnt so good in singing,,, its so painful to watching him to sing everytime.,
    I’d rather Danny and Adam are the top 2 better then Kris,

    I just dont understand why SO AWESOME, TALENTED, CREATIVE artist cant win the show??!!
    no wondering Simon didnt stand up to cheers Kris to win, UNDERSTOOD!!!! TOTALLY!!!
    its so rigged….speechlessssss…………

    No matter what..
    We cant wait to buy Adam Lambert’s album!! We will buy whole lotta for you!!!
    BTW, Adam is SOOOOOOOOOOOO HOT. LOL

    A HUGE LOVE FROM CHINA !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    .

  160. HugsForAdam says:

    Adam totally deserved to win, I was sad when he lost (in tears, actually), but then I thought about it…

    1. Adam probably will outsell Kris in albums

    2. Adam is not “owned” by American Idol, so he’ll be able to do more stuff on his own

    3. Adam is amazing, and if he came in first place or last, he will always be my 1# American Idol

  161. Marissa says:

    hey everyone knows that adam lambert is the berst and if u cant see that ur retarted! And chris didnt deserve it and chris knew that!eeehhh hes going 2 go ssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much further then chris oviously
    I ? Adfam l;ambert ui have all of his songs hes ever sang.
    Plus hes hot 2 and i dont usually like guys like that either so thats sayiong somethibng!

  162. Cheryl Stothard says:

    THIS IS TRUELY A MAD WORLD! When he sang a song and gave me the chills I knew in my heart that he should win. Most of the Kris’s fans must be to young and don’t realize what feelings are when they are in a song. There are so many things people don’t think about and Adam is one he should be America’s Idol not Kris! Kris doesn’t know how to feel! I will be buying Adam Lambert’s first CD! Hurry up Adam!

  163. Don’t get it wrong….conservatives did not band against Adam. I am about as conservative as you get and I was a die hard Adam Lambert fan and still have not gotten over the fact he lost. So I don’t think it was conservatives at all. I simply think when Danny was voted off, his fan base went into the Kris Allen camp and it is what pushed Kris over the edge. On the flip side…I know alot of liberals who did NOT vote for Adam….so I think it boiled down to musical style and not sexual preference.

  164. Hi everyone, I’m just starting to come around after being upset the last two days. I figured the million dollar contract the winner gets is not good enough for Adam. He deserves a much greater contract to match his greater talent. So, technicially he doesn’t deserve to win AI’s record deal because he deserves bigger and better. And, he will get a better deal and we’ll all look back at this and say it wasn’t so bad afterall.

  165. Adam deserved to win because of his talent not the “safe american look alike” pop star that will sell millionsmediocre albums. I believe he will have the better career, with keeping true to his passions and talent. Appears that talent counted until the end and then Idol became a popularity contest. I live in Minnesota (Middle America) and was shocked that Kris won.

  166. Heather says:

    Adam and Adam fans need not worry. Adam will have a very long, successful career. He was the breath of fresh air that AI needed. Mainstream America who predominantly voted for Kris was not ready for Adam. True music idols and icons are edgy, push the envelope, are ahead of their time and change the course of music. That’s what Adam will do. Kris, though talented does not have that ability. Think Elvis, the Beattles, Madona, Prince etc. They are iconic, original and edgy. None of them would have won AI either because they would have been seen as too theatrical, controversial, blah, blah, blah and yet they stayed true to who they are because they’re original artists and needed to express their God given talent in only the way that they can. Don’t worry, Adam will do just fine. He’ll be the global idol in the real world instead of music. This I am sure of. 🙂

  167. Vicki P says:

    Adam was the reason that the other contestants, including Kris, got better on the show. Adam set the bar and probably helped everyone else up their game, too, by helping them with stage presence and song choice, etc. Adam has a great personality and his talent is original and out of this world. I am going to be the first in line to buy his first album and first in line for his first concert. When I bought the Idol tour tickets, I thought for sure Adam was gonna be the winner and they would be featuring him in the show, but now that Kris won, I’m really bummed. Now Adam’s gonna be singing back-up for Kris.

    Here’s wishing Adam all the best.

  168. We are SOOO upset that Adam didn’t win Idol! Kris is good, and probably, any other year would have been a worthy winner. But Adam just blew us away week after week, his vocal range is just sensational.
    I just want to say “Hurry up and book your UK tour!!” because I want front row tickets,Adam Lambert is a SUPERSTAR!!!

  169. I’m from Singapore. All my colleagues LOVE ADAM. I’ve been watching AI this season only because of Adam. I can’t believe it on Thurs when I heard the results. Now that I have calmed down, I’m not feeling so sad. There’s no more room in my heart for another singer/idol – I can only have ADAM!!!
    Adam will soar, let’s buy his CDs to show our support. Show Kris voters who has the LAST LAUGH!!!! HA HA HA HA HA! It’ll be Adam Lambert and his fans.

  170. LoveLeeR says:

    GO ADAAAAAM you have an entire life of greatness ahead of you, and I’m soooooooo excited for you !!!!!
    I’ M PROUD TO BE YOUR FAN.
    YOU are the winner here,
    YOU’VE BEEN GIVEN CREDIT FROM YOUR PEERS.
    Even Kris thought you deserved to win, SO WHAT ELSE CAN WE ASK FOR?
    AN ALBUUUUUUM AND A SOLO TOUR !!!!.

    I hope you’ll come to france or africa, otherwise I’ll be the one coming to the US to watch u.

    YOU ARE SURROUNDED BY LOVE AND PEOPLE PRAISE YOUR TALENT.
    UR FANS ARE MAAAAAADLY IN LOVE WITH YOU, WE ADORE U !!!!!

  171. I just love the behind the scenes vid where everyone goes “booooooooooo” when the winner is announced xD yeah i know its mean but its a honest reaction

  172. Heather says:

    Had a typo in my last entry & it should have stated, that Adam will be the global idol in the real world instead of the ‘reality’ world of music. Time will reveal the true winner of this season’s competition….

  173. ok, you all know that adam was SUPPOSED to win. its sick and wrong D: . but he will be Much more popular. Trust. and i think the reason Kris Allan won is because Gokey fans voted for him because kris is more like danny than adam is. ADAM RULES, AND DONT FORGET IT 😀

  174. Mike Kurtz says:

    Adam,

    I have watched all eight seasons of American Idol and I have NEVER seen anyone who came close to your talent. It is appalling that you did not win AI this year. You will undoubtedly be the biggest post-Idol success in the show’s history. I can NOT wait for your first album to come out! Forgive the hypocritical values of this country and don’t forget they voted for W. too…not once mind you. You ARE an AMERICAN IDOL!!!

  175. Edilaine says:

    I am from Brazil, I used to love American Idon, but this results were too much for me. I love Adam, and I know he is our American Idol. I didnt understand how could be? Adam is the best…..and winner or not, he always be The Best singer from this show.

  176. Kris Allen is not a bad singer, but he is nowhere in the league that Adam Lambert is in! I thought I would be seeing the BEST singer win. There never was a question, but it appears Kris’ home town decided to change the results to suit their selfish needs. Kris will do well, but Adam is the real superstar here….never doubt it. I hope he goes on tour with Queen. When I first heard Adam sing, I immediately thought of Queen. QUEEN, get Adam signed up! He will definitely catapult you to once-again stardom!

  177. I live in Boise, ID. Had been able to vote until the final night.

    03 and 05 were FAX lines.

    01 Was busy for four hours. Not one vote could I make.

    Doesn’t look good to me.

    Another Scam,

    But Adam is our Man!!!

  178. Nova Pearl says:

    Vote for the Worst and its ilk have finally accomplished what it set out to do: hijack American Idol and make it powerless and irrelevant. What is the point of Idol if it is not the power to crown the best? Adam created such a sensation. He gave so much to the show. He won over the judges, who were really not for him in the beginning. There was a point at which everyone knew Adam was the best. Even Kris knew it.

  179. Ok lets talk about how the show ended no Kris shouldn’t have won but he did! Now that we got that out of the way real talk Adam is a rock n roll glam god ok and a phenomenal voice and range too. Star quality and charisma he has. All the gossip of what and who he is Does not matter he is Adam and will be a bigger star than Kris will ever be. I for one am not just a fan but a triple threat performer too.
    Adam will steal the tour and who of the big stars of music wouldn’t want to sing with Adam Lambert.
    People we all want our fame and Adam Lambert has it now and forever…. So in my closing Way to go Adam we all love you and stay true to who you are. A very special performer and a Star!!!!!!

  180. i am soo tiked off that adam didn’t win but, he is so amazing that he will have an awesome record ready – really quickley im hoping because i want to listen to it
    i live in canada but have realitives in detroit and i went across just so that i could vote like nuts for adam during the voting time on finale
    i mean kris is ok but is NO WHERE near adam perfection
    adam toataly got robbed
    he always has been and always will be the best and is the TRUE american idol

  181. Idol sucks. Period. It is seriously rigged and Kris didnt even deserve to make top 2, Allison did. And Adam clearly deserved to win! Its all a big mess. Adam will be way more successful though and Idol will see that they made a huge mistake!

  182. tara ramos says:

    I will never watch AI again. I swear it on my father’s grave. The people of Arkansas ought to be ashamed of themselves. Yeah, Kris won but did he deserve it? Certainly not. The guy still needs some vocal coaching. Adam does not.

  183. Yes I was so shocked that I could not say anything at first ,then I was so pissed off , I even said I

    wasn’t going to watch AI again (but then I won’t see what is out there) and then when the

    dust settled, I realized he is the winner! Obviously he was the most talented with the whole package.

    I am 57 years old and I couldn’t get enough of him, he was that good. My grandson who is 3 years old

    asks me to play the video of Adam with Kiss over and over again and he goes around the house

    singing “I want to Rock N Roll all night and Party everyday” sooooooo cute!

    Yes I am a Catholic and I love Jesus and I guess that makes me a Christian. Adam was not

    participating in AI to be judged by anyone for his personal status in this world, anyone that is

    Christian and did this is not really being a true Christian and should be ashamed of themselves.

    WWJD that stands for “what would Jesus do?” He definately would not have condemed him. Just like

    he didn’t Mary Magdalene.

    He should have been seen for his true talent and how incredibly creative he is to take a song and

    make it his own every single time he performed. I am glad now that he didn’t win, first of all he

    doesn’t have to make that hideous song “No Boundries” his first release. After he is done with the

    summer tour the sky is the limit and there will be no stopping this SUPERSTAR! I can’t wait to see

    and hear what will be next.

    As for Kris he is a talented guy and he has to be American Idol for the next year and do that song for

    his first release (poor thing). He is no comparison to Adam. ADAM LAMBERT is in a League of his

    own so far advanced it unbelievable. Great Job both contestants!

  184. Deborah says:

    OK Adam Fams ALL OVER THE WORLD. I have a new version for all of us Adam Fans to sing EVERY time he sings Queen’s WE ARE THE CHAMIONS song at his concerts..sing it over him singing..this will be OUR way of telling him that WE KNOW he’s our boy and always will be!!!:

    CHORUS for us all to sing over his chorus: (LOUDLY!!!!!)..PLEASE pass on around the WORLD and every fan site out there….and surprise him!!!!
    : )

    YOU ARE our champion A..da-aam.
    And You’ll keep on winning…. ’til the end.

    YOU are our champion
    YOU are our champion
    No time for losers ‘cos
    YOU are our champion…..
    ………………..of the world!!!!

    ….pass it on guys to ALL FANS.

  185. kourtney says:

    I SOOOOO AGREE ADAM SHOULD HAVE WON KRIS GOT LUCKY SORRY KRIS LOVERS BUT THIS GURL IS AN ADAM FAN FOR LIFE SO YOU TALK BOUT HIM YOUR TALKING BOUT ALL THE ADAM LOVERS SO KEEP TALKING AND IT WILL COME BACK AROUND 50X WORSE.I LOVE YOU ADAM!!!

  186. Adam-my-Idol says:

    I can’t tolerate cheaters. I’m posting the link for The NY times article http://www.nytimes.com/2009/05/27/business/media/27idol.html?ref=media
    What upsets me themost is that we were not given the same opportunities for voting. Did AT&T cheat in AI show too? I still don’t rely in AI show voting system anyways

  187. Patty Cruz says:

    AADDDDDAAAAMMMMMM!!!! Please come out (no pun intended) and perform on tv soon!!! I’m suffering from Glambert withdrawal syndrome!!!

  188. Adam is the best performer and singer I’ve ever seen. He was too big for American Idol, I think. People couldn’t see him growing each week and he seemed like he didn’t “need” the voters to pull him through because he was SOOOO good from the very beginning! Still, I voted for him for hours every week because he deserved to win more than anyone ever has and I wanted to see him every week for the rest of the season. We all helped him accomplish what he wanted — to stay on the show as long as possible and to be in that dream finale with his friend Kris (and KISS and Queen, of course). He will do extremely well for as long as he wants to be in the music business and maybe he can do some acting if he wants to do that too. I’m upset that I couldn’t get through to vote on finale night through regular phone lines while others were racking up thousands of votes with text messaging, but now there’s nothing that we can do but move on from it and support Adam all the way for as long as he’s making music. I love him and I miss him on Tuesdays already (alot).

  189. ADAM I LOVE YOU!!!
    Kris may be the nice guy with a nice voice but YOU WERE THE VOICE OF SEASON 8! THERE IS NO OTHER ADAM LAMBERT!!! You’re amazing and you deserve more than the American Idol title. You’re going to be legendary!!
    NEVER STOP SINGING!
