  • ANN

  • heygirlhey

    yes! adam sucks. kris is adorable! yay

  • Abi

    NO. Adam should have won. America sucks. So judgemental. Kris is good, but he sounds like every other male singer. Adam has real talent.

  • Kim

    Neither one was my favorite but I am glad that Chris won. Adam is so annoying when he does high notes and he was so sure of himself that he had it in the bag. LMAO I snicked when they announced that Adam didn’t get it. :) :) :) :) :)

  • jen

    Im shocked. I liked Kris but Adam was a far better vocalist and far better performer. Oh well..they both have very bright futures ahead of them!

  • Alexanderina

    Are you kidding me? Kris is not the best talent and he is not going to be a huge star either

  • marianna

    That’s crap!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • stella

    YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I AM SOOOO HAPPY :D

  • juliaaa.

    no.
    chris is good. but i hear his kind of voice ALL the time
    american idol is about finding talent. adam is TALENTED. i haven’t heard anything like him in a while :)
    they will both do great. but adam should of had the title.
    sorry guys!

  • MissyQ

    I swear American Idol is rigged! X(

  • Paulie

    Completely ridiculous result. Adam showed throughout tonight’s show that he’s the better talent, yet Kris wins. Ugh.

  • http://www.popitunes-mighty.com/ Mighty

    So sad that Adam didn’t win. Oh we all know that 2nd runner up end up selling more record, and more sucessful.

  • Rachel

    YESSSSS Adam is a fame-whore. Kris is sweet and cute. VERY CUTE. No doubt Adam has a good voice but…he’s too much for any single person.

  • kevin

    hell no, he is boring and white trash

  • lilly

    I love them both
    I’m so happy for Kris

  • hannah

    of course yes…. kris allen deserves it..
    always the underdog.. david cook, taylor hicks and now kris allen..
    YAY!

  • batholomeow

    KRISSSS!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Kim

    Stop complaining guys, you should of voted harder :P

  • Alexanderina

    Adam was the most talented of the two of them and I can see him having a great career better than Kris. I can’t wait for his album

  • barbc

    Kris Allen of course!!! America picked the right Idol. Yeah Kris!!! America got tired of Adam’s scream-singing that sounded the same all the time….ppl the right idol won…get over it. Go Kris!!!!!!

  • LuckyL

    OF COURSE–REMEMBER CLAY AIKEN LOSING TO THAT IMBECILE RUBEN? DON’T LAMBERT WILL HAVE A MORE SUCCESSFUL CAREER. SOME PEOPLE DIDN’T WANT HIM TO WIN SO THAT COULD HAPPEN.

    I DON’T EVEN RECALL THIS KRIS GUYS FACE–AND HOW MANY PEOPLE WILL OVER ADAM.

    LOL I REMEMBER SOMETHING HOWARD STERN SAID “THEY’RE NOT GOING TO CHOOSE CLAY BECAUSE ANY STRAIGHT GUY VOTING IS GOING TO FEEL “GAY,” SO THEY’LL VOTE FOR RUBEN.”

    NO WORRIES Y’ALL, LOL–LOVE ADAM

  • JMC

    I didn’t watch Idol this year but I was hoping Adam would win because he’s gay. We should have a gay idol!

    Oh well, he’ll end up being more successful…

    Congrats to the winner, though!

  • bob saget

    he’s amazing, america got it right. adam had the same voice throughout the season, kris looked the part and had the voice to be the winner. Piss off Perez!

  • barron797

    Whhaaaa??

    I thot for sure Adam Lambert was going to win. This is the same sh#$ as the DWTS….why the heck did Shawn Johnston win?

    Kris Allen is going to sell albums? I think he’s Ruben Studdard part II.

  • sercan

    YYYESSS!!! I am so glad! I love Kris! Adam was great as well, but screams a lot! I cannot wait to buy Kris’ album!

  • Delilah

    i’m so happy for kris but they will both be very successful. kris is so adorable, he made me smile :)
    and adam, is adam, so he’ll be alright.

  • Jane

    YES!! Kris!!!

  • pam

    i blame the Adam lost to all the Adam-loving from the media this past couple of weeks…it was enough to send middle America to go crazy with the voting…

  • qwerty

    they definitely chose the wrong winner. adam was by far the best and to be honest, i would have bought the “victory song” if it was adam singing it. however, i do think that adam will be much more successful

  • FTW

    Yes! He deserved the freaking trophy!

  • Ben

    Kris deserved to win over Adam’s banshee yelling. I can’t foresee a successful future for Adam, but if Kris remains on the soothing track, then he’ll be a STAR. Congrats to Kris!!!

  • Michelle

    it’s because the south votes for the good ol’ christian boy. too bad he won’t sell as many records though.

  • http://september-nine.livejournal.com elysee

    I was shocked, actually.

    But good for him!
    But did anyone see Simon after? He didn’t stand up or applaud or anything.

    Bet he wishes he kept that save eh? :P

  • vickyy+

    YESSS!

  • vickyy+
