Yes!!!! I am so glad!!!
Adam is definitely more talented and I believe he'll have a more successful career, but Kris fits the Idol preference. I wish Adam could have won, but at least he wont have to have that god awful song as his first single!!
Yes!!! Kris is someone I'd want to listen to on the radio and buy his cd's. Adam is a performer and great for broadway! I'm glad he didn't win so he's not in contract and can start performing.
I don't agree with the choice.
Chris is a pleasant lovely singer with a good voice - he is not unique or interesting
Adam is a star- charismatic exciting something unique
It is great for Adam that he didn't win. Now he is free to do his thing with his own fabulous spin.
Loved Danny and Allison tonight.
Chris is the sweet mid america choice- safe
i love love love adam but i think it was like with the davids last year: david cook and kris allen need the win on their resume whereas david archuletta and adam are going to be successful either way.
no! Kris is talented enough but Adam was way better. America is just afraid Adam is going to use his "gay agenda" to help further the gay marriage progress. Typical, the Baptist Youth Pastor beats out the gay man because god forbid he win a talent competition that he was MORE talented in
nope. adam proved tonight that he is AMAZINGLY talented. when kris won he didnt even seem to effing care!!!! and simon looked pissed. wow
who cares. american idol has ruined the music industry.
yes of course!!! kris allen appeals to more people — plus hes adorable! not to mention, all of the votes danny lost went to kris. i kind of like adam didnt win since EVERYONE was going to say he was.
Adam is, and will always will be, more successful than kris, and he can do things his own way, not under idol
WHO CARES? The only people that ever had success from American Idol were Kelly Clarkson & Jennifer Hudson… the others have no fucking chance, it's not even worth it to go on the show! Just like America's Next Top Model! Duh! These shows won't let their winners get more fame then the own show! That's the way it works.
YES! Adam is very talented but feel he is a little over the top for a pop singer geared towards middle america. He'll still have a huge career!
its not a gay thing so shove it, Kris was more appealing to the show's audience and he was damn good
YES!! because they will both do great no matter who had won!! they are both talented singers!!
urgh. so frustrated. music needs adam. you could hardly tell chris apart from jason mraz. although he was at his best with keith urban. kiss was awesome and kara was pretty good as well.
well 100 million people voted for kris so i think its fair, whether or not a person agrees with the results, kris is the winner. besides, the runner up is usually successful anyway, i'm sure adam lambert will be just fine he's a talented guy.
No. I think it's ridiculous. Adam will be just fine so there's solace in that.
NO!!!!…. Adam's powerful voice shouldve won instead of BORING Kris
does it really matter at this point? one trick pony Screech will get a record deal anyway…who cares
Hell yes! Adam should not be singing that horrible song about mountains and hurricanes. He'd do better to go on tour with Queen!
America voted for traditional marriage!! Yay!!!
Perez 0 Miss California 1
F U C K NO…but he'll do just fine without idol….
LOL Perez you are nothing but a pathetic little girl so if you are not gonna say it let me have the honor of saying
KRIS ALLEN IS THE NEW AMERICAN IDOL!!!
KRIS ALLEN IS THE NEW AMERICAN IDOL!!!
KRIS ALLEN IS THE NEW AMERICAN IDOL!!!
KRIS ALLEN IS THE NEW AMERICAN IDOL!!!
I think Lambert is strong enough to do okay without winning, while Kris would have just faded out. He still might fade out.
OK, let's look at what odds were against Adam from winning:
1. Last year Simon picked David Archuleta, this year Adam Lambert.
2. Adam Lambert: over-exposed in publicity, his being possibly gay was made an issue by tabloid, news organizations, bloggers and pictures all over the internet of him kissing another man.
3. Christian vote: Although it didn't help David Archuleta last year, there wasn't a question about David Cooks sexuality, so there wouldn't be such a division. Cook possibly also had the sympathy vote due to his brothers illness. Also, the location of where the two David's lived as you will note below (Archuleta from Utah).
4. AI is more popular in rural areas and the south, than in big cities, midwest, east/west coast. Most of the winners have been from southern states and all from "red" states (Adam is from California):
Season 1: Clarkson - Texas
Season 2: Studdard - (Germany) raised in Alabama
Season 3: Barrino - North Carolina
Season 4: Underwood - Oklahoma
Season 5: Hicks - Alabama
Season 6: Sparks - Arizona
Season 7: Cook - Texas/Missouri/Oklahoma
Season 8: Allen - Arkansas
I don't want to take away from Kris Allen, he is talented, but I do think that Adams implied sexuality and appearance worked against him considering the odds above. Clean cut all-american boy wins.
What the hell? That shit is rigged!
Both of them are so good!
Adam is original but he does the same thing with every song.
It's amazing, yes, but it gets a little old.
Adam should be doing Broadway. He's was amazing in Wicked.
Adam dosen't need to win AI. Producers will RUSH to him to offer him the bes contracts (much less restrictives than the AI contract).
Adam has such a GREAT ENERGY, so positive, present and future focussed.
Kris is also very talented, very interesting, and I think that he definitely 'fits' the AI mold.
Adam needed a platform to be known, that done, he's free to do whatever.
Go ADAM! This guy is artistically REALLY inspiring, mature and I can't wait to listen to his music to come!
I agree 100%.
Adam was good, however Kris deserved the win.
I have no doubt in my mind that Adam did not need the AI win to make it big.
No, hands down Adam should have won!
ADAM SHOUD HAVE WON!!! worst decision everrrrrr.
i liked both of them
they were COMPLETE opposites too. they will both have successful careers, no matter what.
Adam deserved it.
YES I AGREE!!
You know what else I think? Stop being silly Lamb Skank and post a picture of Kris in this posting. You are being rather rude to our AMERICAN IDOL KRIS ALLEN!!!
No way. Adam should have won.
adam all the way
kris does not even compare
lol, it's about time you posted something about AI. It's unfortunate that you can't even write his name out. Seriously…"Congrats to the Winner!" Come on Perez, we know your upset but give the guy some credit. Kris won fair and square.
I think that Adam SHOULD have won, yet I know it is better that he didn't because now he will have the freedom to do whatever he wants. He won't have the cheesy Idol contract but be able to choose from the many offers. In the end, I think he will get exactly what he wants rather than have to be an American Idol puppet. So, while Adam should have won, Kris winning isn't so bad. I think Kris is definately more radio material and all. He has a nice voice and all soooo it makes enough sense..
adam was robbed!!!
NO NO NO NO NO NO NO ABSOLUTELY NOT
The most talented person, the one who has been most consistent throughout the entire season and can sing any song that is handed to him, didn't win. Kris is completely forgettable, and Adam can out-sing him anytime. It's a shame that some people let lifestyles get in the way of recognizing pure talent. At least Adam won't have to sing that stupid mountain/hurricane song.
The gay guy, I don't know his name, sounded like a broadway/opera singer, not a radio friendly singer. It is not because he is gay, it is because he is simply over trained as a vocalist, the the point of annoyance. The other guy…has a more radio friendly voice, that is why he won.
I like Kris, but I completely and totally fucking hate the decision. IMO, Adam deserved it so much more.
Thanks Perez for helping Kriss win, he truly deserved it!
No. Adam should have taken it.
I didnt like kris.
I have said it many times today. Adam Lambert was a superstar from the second he sang in front of the judges to get a ticket to hollywood he was brilliant week after week but never got better i mean how could he really he's just fantastic! Kris on the other hand wasnt even shown until top 36 and suddenly got through to the top 13 and got better and better every week, idol has really let him grow as an artist. I am upset adam didnt win bc he is just brilliant but i think Kris needed the idol contract more than adam and will actually do better with the songs the idol contract gives him adam will do better with more freedom. its not about who kisses whom its about music and both did a great job and they are really good friends I am happy for both of them and will be first in line to buy both of their CD's!!!!
adam was robbed! he deserved to be the american idol! even though i don't live in america the majority of the people in nz loved adam aswell.
Although… I do have to say Perez… if Adam were to have won, the post would have been outrageous. But since he didn't your post is very plain. Kinda disappointing…
YES! 100%! I was never a fan of Adam's Voice, I Can see myself buying a Kris Allen Album over An Adam Lambert Album Any Day!
OMG I really agree with obvee, my thoughts exactly. That single is horrid! I think that Adam rocked his Ziggy Stadust esque look tonight. Love him to pieces!
Adam wasn't as popular as we were led to believe. He was all hype. The vote wasn't even close, Kris CREAMED Adam!!!
I bet Carrie Prejean voted for Kris!!! GET HER PEREZ!!!
yet another generic artist wins…and thus why this show is sooo freekin boring. however unlike kelly i am sure that this winner will definatly hale in the shadows of a true artist!
Re: ballsdeep88 – wtf you fucking retard, shut the fuck up!!! lame ass.
So where's the video PEREZ??? If you wanna be called a journalist your can't be biased!
So you don't ruin the AI winner, but you don't care about announcing the Eurovision winner without hiding it?
Hell NO! Adam was robbed! He is so different than what is out there right now. He'll kill Kris on the charts.
Re: Whatever!!! –
you forgot carrie underwood : )
NOOOOO….. ADAM GOT JIPPED!
EVEN CHRIS SAID IT 'ADAM DESERVES IT!'
I BET ALL THE 15 YEAR OLD GIRLS WENT GAGA OVER CHRIS AND VOTED A TRILLION TIMES
No wonder US music is a laughing stock when the public think a guy badly strumming a guitar and with a mediocre voice is an Idol.
THE BRITS RULE!!
Adam should have won but certain demographics couldn't get into his goth looks, etc. Too bad. But lucky for Adam cuz we'll be seein' him on the big screen. Something like Twilight…
lame! that show's still on!?!?
Absolutely!!! Both are talented - very talented. I think Kris appeals to a wider variety of fans, thus is more fitting for an American Idol title. Both will have great careers, but Adam is a bit less versatile. You know what to expect with him.
ABSOLUTELY CORRECT DESISION, GO KRIS ALLEN. I LOVE YOU
another loss for you Perez….hahahahahahahahaha
love Kris…love Danny more
Adam was good, but is just a wannabe 80s rocker
"Congrats to the winner. Do U agree with the decision?"
This is exactly what you would have posted if Adam won. Right Mario?
50-ish conservative Christian mom says:
No way! Adam is by far the most talented performer we have seen in nearly a generation! I kept telling my children to pay attention; that some day they would remember seeing Adam on Idol just as I remember listening to the Beatles on my radio when they first came to the U.S. My poor kiddos were DEVASTATED when Adam lost; but they honestly felt better when then I explained that Kris is now obligated to record that "No Boundaries" song as his first single. Because of that we agreed that Adam was the real winner after all. I have NEVER taken my kiddos to a concert (well, the Wiggles but I don't think that counts)…but WE WILL SEE Adam Lambert in concert first chance we get. We'll pass on the Idol tour, that is of no interest…we'll want to see Adam solo. Oh, and I will never watch AI again. I'm done.
Yes! cuz we can show that the media can't control our votes
WHAT DECISION DIPSHIT….100 MILLION PEOPLE VOTED, THERE WAS NO DECISION TO MAKE THE PUBLIC SPOKE.
MUCH LIKE PROP 8 THE PUBLIC SPOKE!
Re: Sweet –
It is a singing contest. A contest where the winner is decided by votes cast by the audience. So to say that the best singer didn't win is inaccurate because according to the voters the best singer did win. It just didn't happen to be the one you thought was best.
now that I think about Adam will do so much better on his own cause he doesn't have to conform to what the AI people want him to do like sing that sappy song (even though he rocked it) there are so many Kris' in the world…Adam reminded me of F. Mercury
Yes. I liked them both, though.
I think Kris is great! I'm so glad he won… he deserves it!!!
I wanted Adam to win. Therefore I disagree.
So happy Kris won!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love Adam too and loved his performances especially with KISS! Kris with Keith Urban was incredible!
I agree that Adam has an incredible voice and showed versatility throughout the season (who could forget his rendition of "If I Can't Have You"?). However, Kris improved dramatically as the season progressed. Additionally, Adam's outrageous vocals might not have mass appeal that Kris's has, although I personally would buy his album, which he will undoubtedly release soon. There's no doubt he'll get a record deal. I'm still upset that Danny Gokey only placed third. He is a great singer as well. I believe all three will do now.
Re: Kiki D –
Of course you want to play the gay card. Rather then being a gracious loser you blame it on America's lack of diversity. Who is really the bigot here? You.
I'm a gay guy and I have no issues with Adam other than that he's a queen and American Idol isn't for him. The sad this is, I wanted him to loose simply because of you Perez. You only care about gay people. As a gay person, i am here to tell you, we are not the only people in the world and you need to grow the hell up and realize that only caring about the gay community is giving us a bad name. You make me sick and I am glad Chris won. Because you didnt want him to win and more importantly, he was the best. Grow the hell up Perez.
I am extremely happy to see that Kris won–I love stories where the underdog wins. I don't think Adam lost because of homophobia–he had a huge fanbase. I think the only thing the results proved was that more of Adam Lambert's fans watched Glee than Kris Allen's fans. With that said, I think both of these guys will go on to have great careers.
I TOTALLY AGREEE! Adam was good but way too theatrical! Kris will put out a WAY better album!!!!!!!!
KRIS KRIS KRIS… YES YES YES AND YES he totally deserved to win! I get that Adam was really out there… but seriously that type of rock music that he's good at and sings isn't for everyone! its very 80's … I think it appeals to a certain crowd… where as Kris is more in touch with with current music and what's popular in the here and now… I think great job to both… but America picked the right idol that appeals to most:D CONGRATS KRISSSSS:D
Hells yes. My faith in AI has been restored, it is a singing competition after all, not a screaming contest (which it seems is all Adam Lambert can do).
Nothing against Adam or anything, he seems like a nice enough guy, but I think Kris deserved it.
Re: Rynne –
Get over yourself. False statements like that make YOU the bigot. Grow up.
Yes, YES… y YES
I definitely agree with the decision for AI. Both Adam and Kris are very talented but Kris has more talent, he's more of a musician. You know Adam is going to be signed on by a record label within the next couple months and may become more popular than Kris but Kris won because he has not only a great voice but he plays that guitar and piano(maybe more instruments than that too).
My opinion is not biased because I only watched the first, and last 2 shows and based it completely on talents.
by the way those who say adam only screeches i urge you to take a listen to his itunes recordings - they are pure BRILLIANCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and man can he sing
Fuck My Life, No.
Adam Lambert was WAY more talented than EVERYONE else there by MILES. Should he have won? if american idol is a singing competition, then yeah he should have won because he was the best singer. But American idol isent looking for the best singer. They are looking for a typical person to fit that "American Idol" mold. Kris allen is a classic boy from middle america, raised in a typical christian family, with that avrage kid next door look/attitude to him. America likes that. They like regular, boring, typical things. Look at all the other idols. MOST of them fit that same mold. Kris Allen is a good guy, with a nice voice… but as weve seen in the past, that can only get you so far. My prediction is that Kris will remain popular for 6 months to a year. after that we will probably never hear of him again like most of the idol "winners" in the past. Adam Lambert on the other hand has something most people dont. Longevity. *sp?* hes someone that can put on a show, and can hold an audience. I have no doubt he will be fine. If anyting, its probably a good thing he lost. atleast now hes not bound to an american idol contract. and he dosent have to sing that AWFUL song wirtten by Kara Dioguardi.
I do, because winning American Idol means kiss your career and credibility goodbye. Adam is OBVIOUSLY more talented, but southern/christian/teen vote counts..they want the nice "all american boy". Adam is out there…Idol is not for him. He's bigger than that, so congrats on losing Adam, you might actually have a chance for a successful career..
adam is amazing, but so was kris.
he deserves the title.
adam will do great regardless.
