    ADAM IS HORRIBLE!!!!!! Kris is way better then Adam. People get your hearing cheaked. All he ever does is scream( which the judges think is amazing singing) but its not. Really? come on. Kris won cus hes amazing, yeah maybe he does not have the greatest voice, but he touches more people when he is performing, thats why he won. I should know I go all day to a school for arts, I know what I'm talking about. Don't know what School of the Arts you go to but they must be pretty tone deft and stupid

    Adam didn't win because he only has two ranges. He can sing really soft and calm or it has to be loud and over the top. Kris could sing country, pop, adult contemporary, etc etc. Obviously you know nothing about Music!!!

    I thought adam was ridiculous!! his incessant wailing is so annoying. I think Kris is a MUCH better artist. Adam's voice is too much of a throwback and he's way too into himself. I'm so glad Kris won!!! Megan I think you are tone deft. I have been a professional musician for over 30 years and their is no contest between Adam and Kris. Adam is the best singer I have ever heard!!! I listen to the song No Bonderies by Kris and I have to turn it off. I am sorry for him that he strains to reach the high notes. After hearing Adam singing it, it does not sound nearly as good. Kris is a good singer but he is no Adam Lambert. Deb Keller

    That is bull sh*t!. He could never win..that was rigged.. My sister voted for Adam like over 65 times!! Chris has the all American clean cut..Cute looking guy image...Ad alot of teeny boppers voting for him.But he will never be as talented as Adam.. Let us see who Cds will sell..lol It is not who wins the race..but who has the talent to make it in this show bizz.. Idol isn't about who is the most talented, it's about who is the most marketable/sellable to the majority of American consumers. Kris is cuter and more appealing to the majority compared to Lambert who is more talented but has a smaller niche glam rock / emo audience to sell to.

    Whoever shoulda won, did win. No would have, should have, could haves... this voting system's been in place for 8 years now. It is clear that the classier, smoother, more talented, and just a generally a well-rounded guy won.

    Kris won because he had the support of the American public. Could be the AMERICAN Public is trying to redeem itself for the error they made in November. Ya think?

    Based on the whole season, Adam should have won. But based on the last performance, Kris really deserved to win. Anyway, I love them both and I hope to hear from them a lot more in the future!

    i'm so glad kris won! i love both of them but i just think kris appeals to more people... more can relate to him & his music, that's probably why :) and apparently the votes were NOT close according to an interview he did just after winning so there you go! i thot they were both amazing but i jsut prefer kris's style cos it's more laid-back

    kris did not deserve to win. ADAM SHOULD'VE WON THE TITLE. he deserves it so much more than kris. he has the talent. kris is plain ordinary. very common. very boring. adam continues to bring spunk and surprises every week with his performances.

    um you have no idea what you are talking about that "screaming" everybody is talking about is actually an amazing voice of an out of this world singer. Kris is average there is a thousand singers like him. and whoop de woop he plays guitar so do a bazillion other singers who sing in the subways and have people throw money in hats. Whoever doesnt think adam is good is a loser. period. Im amazed they let you into a school of arts if you dont think he is a good performer because you have no taste whatsoever. They should kick you out. Okay i just had to respond to this one, you say that there are a million guys that stand around in the subway playing guitar making the comparison to Kris, while holding a torch to Adam like the Judges seem to have done also and for no real reason as far as im concerned! I could go into any Bar after hours when everyone is all liquored up and find a cat fight the shrill shreiking noises comming from the women involved will far surpass that of adam lamberts screaming! as it will have more emotion, the guy cannot sing. Period!

    I'm so happy for Kris! The fact that Adam made it as far in the competition is seriously saying something about that show. The guy is a tool! He sings like a woman why has no one realisted this yet, it's ridiculous and i am using this word with the correct meaning and not Diaguardi's version left in every compliment. "that was ridiculous!" So you didn't like it? me, i thought it was good!For me it should have been a Kris / Gokey final. or maybe even a Kris/Giraud final.. and for me it did go right! if that guy Adam had have won it would have benn like the time That guy Hicks won over Katherine McPhee or Chris Daughtry for that matter! the show for me is going down the tubes when you have guys like Adam Lambert (or should i say women like Adam Lambert!)making the final... That thing he oes when he sings like sticking his tounge out like that is totally ridiculous - Correct use of the word again Cara! So if this comment does nothing else at least it will have stood for a vocabulaary lesson for the Newest Judge on the panal, whom for my money should not be invited back next year!

I thought they were both good...me personally I liked ADAM and wanted him to win! NO MATTER, he will be a huge attraction in this business. I think this was a blackflash in the Daughtry days of AI. Alot of people assumed Adam was gonna get the majority of the votes and wanted the underdog to receive some soooo thats what happens when you assume....I do wish them both the best in their endeavors....

    What the F*ck????? Kris won because America Screwed up once again. Kris is just an average singer, he should be voted off a long time ago. You all know darn well, that Allison should be on top 3 and Kris did an awful song that time. But how did he get there? I am speechLess, Allisong got robbed too and so is Danny Gokey. America know who deserves that Title even Kris knew it. Kris had a nerve to make Statement on Extra last nite on TV that he hopes that America voted BAse on TALENTS.... hahahahahahaha... .not cuz of the religion not cuz of swin voter from Danny Gokey. What we know is... Adam Lambert is the Winner, the producer of the IDOL decided the change it in last minute. That idiot should be fired, he thinks the clean cut america should be crown instead of Talented person. That is too bad now you may need a new job cuz of your rating will go down to hell, along with your career.

    First I must say that Adam was clearly the most talented and deserving winner of American Idol! I absolutly loved his voice and style from the moment he first preformed. How he went so long with out being dicovered, I don't know but now that the people have seen and heard him I'm sure that he will rise to be superstar. So I hate to admit it but it is probably best for Kris to have won. Mind you I didn't vote for him! He needs more training and guidance and AI can give him that. By not winning,Adam is not bound by the limitations that AI puts on their winners. Shame on those who didn't vote for Adam because of his looks and lifestyle choice. As others have said...lets see who sells more cds-clearly that will be Adam!!

    Hi there! I'm a mother and a devout Christian, too! As viewer, I recognize that American Idol is a singing talent contest open to all, regardless of orientation or religion. It is not supposed to be a popularity contest for a certain class of persons. Among all of Season 8's contenders, Adam Lambert is the amazing artist and the best singer, gifted with a powerful voice. America's vote for Kris, or its vote against Adam, seems to be a contemptuous hate vote against that portion of America that Adam stands for. ADAM LAMBERT DESERVED TO WIN. Even Kris Allen himself knows this in his Christian heart, so much so that as soon as he was unexpectedly handed the undeserved crown, he openly admitted in public that "Adam deserves this..." -- righteously adhering to glaring truth and instinctively repudiating ridiculous vote results that were surely no act of God. Adam Lambert is the true winner!

    We all know that if people didn`t know that Adam Lambert was gay he would of won he has the best vocales and hes the new pop start to be adam deserved to win and its a shame that he didn`t because of his sexuality i am not saying tjat he isn`t good but i`m saying that the true winner is adam sorry !! but everyone who watched american idol knows that its the truth. Who care what adams sexuality is we are only there to see the show he`s giving and nothing else.

Kris deserved to win. Anybody who thinks that Adam the squealer has more talent is wrong. Kris is talented and just that fact that your sister voted 65 times for Adam shows how popular Kris is and how much he deserved to win, despite the few idiots who voted for Adam. Well done Adam on coming runner up, he's definetely talented, it's just that Kris is more so. ILOVEKRIS! TEAMKRIS!

    KRIS ALLEN IS BEAUTIFUL and everybody is just really JEALOUS. Kris Allen has a UNIVERSAL appeal, when Adam L. appeals to people that love HAIRSPRAY and TEENYBOPPERS that have figured out new ways to put Swarovski Crystals around their eyes. ;)

    I love the comments about how Adam should have won - and then they go on to say it's not about the votes, but about the talent.. would they be saying that if Adam won? America voted, and that's that. Maybe you shouldn't call the race before it's over. Adam had the typical front runner fan base, the same fan base that was crazy for Taylor Hicks and Clay Aiken. Adam will do well in theater, but Kris has way more potential for success in the mainstream music industry. Ultimately, the success of the American Idol is up to the millions of people who DON'T watch American Idol. And as one of those people, I would rather listen to a Kris Allen album than an Adam Lambert one.

    Well if everyone thought Adam should have won you should have done what AR did! 38 million votes came from there! The south is smarter than most people think apparently! I say Adam is talented but he is not the "American Idol". Kris got the votes. Same thing happend to Daughtry! He should have won but people figured he would win anyway and didn't vote. What happend!? He lost in the top 4. Think abou it!

    BOTH guys are talented in their own way and both will be huge stars of course! I personally liked Kris because he touched my soul with his beautiful voice. He's more of a regular singer and he plays instruments, like a real 'singer'!..I think Adam would kick ass in a Broadway performance or something but where is that type of music played these days? Too bad for Adam he wasn't around in the 80's cause he would have been a superstar like Sebastian Bach! If Adam would go more screamo he could be more contemporary but I'm not seeing that happen, he loves the glitz and should have a Vegas show!

    Of course Kris deserved to win! His vocals are really strong, and he's a talented piano and guitar playing. Plus, he sings with so much heart that it's difficult not to be touched by a Kris Allen performance. Simon is not always right.

    How can you call Kris as American Idol if his hometown of abt 2 million population has votes like 38 millions? Wow, American or Arkansas Idol? Make you wonder, huh?. I just hope those 2 millions population would buy 38 millions of his album.

    I can never bear Adam!!!! He is so confident that he thought he gonna win. But it turns out that manny people can hardly accept his screaming. People around me all think he is mad. I can list manny people who can sing like him. If it is Rock n Roll, .....?

    Adam was of course really good, but I beleive Kris will have a better chance at a successful career. Adams brand of rock and roll is completely obsolete right now and Kris' is just the thing. Im very happy for Kris... he definetly deserves it.

    People can whine/cry ALL they want..Blame this..Blame that.."It was rigged.." Blah..Blah..Blah! Not enough people voted for Adam..just get over it already! American Idol..is an amateur contest.. Maybe Adam has too much experience/trainning for this type of competition..? Too much HYPE..Too much Theatrics!. the right guy WON!..Congrats to both of them..but Kris won the popular vote!..that's what it's all about. If Adam is soooo great as he's hyped to be..He should've had a CD already..He didn't need American Idol's platform. His kind of talent/performing is better suited to a different kind of stage..A THEATRE. Adam didn't take the title..because he didn't have the necessary votes..Period. If it's anyone's fault..blame HIS fans..they let him down. Way to Go Guys! You're both Awesome..in your OWN ways.. The right person WON..America's Idol..is Kris Allen!

    america voted for him but he's not worth it...he's only popular...but not a good singer.. gokey deserved to be in the finals not him.. adam deserves to win.. sorry but that's only an opininon.. I agree..He probably had hi whole town and church voting for him..Well that is ok..We will see who sells Cds..After all it is the music business..They are only interested in seeing GREEN!! Adam is more contemporary for this time we are living in..and very versatile But ..Kris sings Elevator music..Who is going to buy that.? Not me..Let us for Kris sakes hope all who voted for him buy his cd that is all i have to say..lol

    Kris won because he'll have universal appeal and doesn't seem to flaunt egoism...Adam I thought should or could have won...but, he has his own appeal and will do amazing since the public has seen him...Kris will appeal to all and will get the help he needs to make him a success to the masses...He'll become a stronger performer...
