    Adam had a lot of adults that liked him. Kris had the teenage girls screaming for him. Teenage girls will call and text way more than adults.

    And by posts from previous threads, Kris also had the gay "Hottie" vote as well. Even though it was a singing contest, Adam didn't have a voting chance really. If it was just based on singing ability, Adam would have won by a landslide.

    He will. Adam has real star power, Kris is just another cute face who won because he appealed more to mainstream America. People are intimidated by Adam (g)Lambert, but that will change.

    Nothing like putting the spoiler right on the front page and everything. I feel bad for anyone that needs to use their DVR to see the show.

    Regardless, I didn't think Adam should have even been on the show since I considered him a "professional" already. Of everyone else, I've like Kris from his audition. So, I'm glad he won.

    It's the truth. Cute face version 435623b will fade. He even said that Adam deserved to win.

    I'm happy that others like Adam. Kris is great. I'd liked him a fair bit but I thought Adam was really great. It's the kind of music that isn't always the easiest on the ears and may not appeal to lots of people.

    I'm thankful he lost so he hopefully won't be pressured by AI to make some "no boundries-esque" crap album. Hopefully Kris won't do that either.

    Was anyone else teary eyed when he sang with Queen sort of in Freddie's place?

    Yeah... Adam... should have won... and was the better singer... I totally believe all of danny's middle of america votes went to Chris... all those worried about a gay theatrical guy winning... but while not happy... I think Adam will probably go on and do better in the long run...sell more... do better... and stay longer....

    Adam will definitely go on to be bigger and better.

    Kris could benifit the best from the show by winning. Adam's carreer is set. This was a good outcome for that. I wish they had a better final song.

    Adam singing the Queen song, blowing Kris out of the water. Really, Kris was just a patch of floating algae and foam when Adam opened his pipes.

    The bands will come out of the woodwork to get Adam to front their band. I see Kris going the way of Ruben and Taylor.

    I think Kris is adorable, so personable and cute. So married. I'll never purchase a Kris Allen download...not because he's not a good singer, or that I'm bitter. I just doubt I'll hear something even remotely as good as Jason Mraz or Jack Johnson come out of his mouth.

    Adam, on the other hand...ready for international stardom. I could see him tour with Queen, Jimmy Paige, Slash...anyone. He's. Got. It.

    That's the whole issue I have with Idol: it masquerades as a talent competition by having judges, when in fact it's nothing more than a popularity contest decided by the slobbering mob. It doesn't matter who "deserves" to win based on their artistic merits or whatever-- the winner is decided by who can woo the greatest percentage of the herd, and the herd is influenced by all kinds of factors (aesthetic, 'denominational,' tribal) that have nothing whatsoever to do with the skill or talent that's supposedly at the heart of the competition. It's all a big populist sham replete with overhyped drama and engineered tension.

    Honestly, no one should be upset.
    If you cared so much then you would have been dialing Adams' number like crazy last night.

    It all came down to whoever had the more loyal fanbase in my opinion.
    Did America get it right? I don't think so, but i'm not going to whine about it because I didn't vote (not that could anyways lol)

    Adam didn't need to win like Kris did. At the end of the day, Adam will be selling out stadiums long after Kris Allen is forgotten.

    BF and I voted for Adam like a lot but I understand why Kris won and pulled an upset.

    He won because of several reasons:

    1. He's the All-American straight boy frat guy from Arkansas, straight, cute, rising up singer-songwriter like John Mayer (sort of)

    2. He's straight & more like down to earth unlike glam-gothic-gay-rock Adam

    3. He got all those swing Danny Gokey votes who's considered to be an underdog.

    4. America just wasn't ready for a mainstream gay glam rocker like Adam.

    Those are my two cents, I still love David Cook and Kelly Clarkson the best, this season 8 was All Right. icon_biggrin.gif

    Nobody's whining like the earth revolves around the show. It's a pony race, and it's a fun indulgence.

    And, for your information, WE dialed for an hour-and-a-half last night and only got through three times.

    It is American Idol. They'll all be forgotten in a few months. Like that guy named after a sandwich and that girl named after the Disney movie, and that grey haired hick guy...whatzernames?

    Adam X 12 should have won...

    okay now having vented and getting that off of my chest.

    Its about the money and who will make the money for the execs and Kris looked like the easier one to manhandle.

    Adam, Im so glad that he made it this far and that he did make a whole lot of people uneasy....good for him.....question status quo I say.

    okay back to the previously planned program...my life! LOL
