I'm interested in what your thoughts are on Adam Lambert, a controversial contestant on American Idol and how he was treated last night.

I think people figured he is a shoe in so they didn't "waste" their voting on him. My take is, he really wants Broadway and he will have a career there now regardless of what happens. I would love to hear him sing Journey or Queen next week! I think he's great and he's the one I look forward to hearing what he is going to do.

I agree. I know I didn't bother to vote for him.... figured he'd be ok. I was shocked to see him as bottom 2.
I'm also rethinking my opinion that he'll win. Honestly, he's a great actor, sings well. But it always seems like he's got to inject his screeching with every song he sings.

I thought it was so very humiliating of them to make him choose sides. I would like to see him do a song without the super high notes and I can not wait to see what he does for Rock week! Alvin: I'm not sure if he really WANTS Broadway; I think that was just a way for him to pay bills and get noticed... I think he's way beyond that now.

I am very sad that Adam Lambert is gay,(If you don't believe me go to youtube and type adam lambert responds to gay pictures) but he still rocks my world! He has SICK! VOCAL CHORDS, ROCKIN' MUSIC, BRILLIANT SONG CHOICES, and THE LOOK. The dude's got the whole package, don't be a predjudiced son of a bitch and hate him cause' of his sexuality. He's extremely talented, and a super sweet down to earth guy (well at least he seems that way) to lose the whole competition and to be hated on.

Alright, cyberdudes, listen up, Adam is a rocker from heaven, SCREAMING IN ROCK 'N' ROLL SONGS ARE NOT JUST HIS SIGNATURE/STYLE ITS THE WAY THAT THE MUSIC'S SUPPOSED TO SOUND LIKE!!!!! Maybe to you half tone deaf peoples would cut him some slack Adam deserves to win not that loser/man 304 kris matthews, he's to boring and low key to win. If you ask me it shoulda' been Adam and Alyison at the finals, she has pure natural and raw talent way more than some of the other contestants.

I hope Adam doesn't win. I don't like him that much. I think he is fake. In the beginning he didn't sing what he sings now, nor did he sing the way he does now. I believe when he makes records he will not make records sounding the way he does now. I was sad to see Danny go last night, but I do think the right 2 are in the top right now. Chris is unbelievable! He's been consistant almost all the way through the whole show! And I can't count how many songs he has made his own! They both are great singers! And as far as Adam being gay, who cares! I knew from the second he opened his mouth at auditions that he was gay!

I liked Danny. Thought he had something going on there, and I'm sick to death of "artists" like Adam Lambert who screech like that, and their EMO look. So, I'm hoping Chris wins, too!

Each week my husband and I actually discuss what songs we think and wish Adam is going to sing. The rest can be "good" and not, but Adam has been a constant wonderful, and we are both in our 50's. Previously, I would get upset if someone I thought deserved to stay got voted off, like Chris Daultry (sp) and Jennifer Hudson. Now, I don't as I know they many times end up with the career they wanted and deserved regardless of their placing. Idol gives them a chance to get a great jump start and it is up to them to make it work. Go Adam! And, I think Kris is great too!

See i am on the fence with this one because they are both very different and very good at the type of music they sing. I would buy both of their albums but i would have to say that it would be nice for a rocker to win.

And i agree with tabitha that this is a TALENT competition (or at least a popularity contest) and it shouldn't matter what ones sexuality is no matter what they want to do with their lives. It is private business so stay out of it.

Now last night, I wanted to vent soooo bad! Those judges were not right last night! When Simon said to Adam on his second song, that he was not going to judge him on the song, that Pissed me off! Why, because Adam did not do a good job on it. Why is it sooo hard for them to say that he was bad? He did, he did a bad job on his last 2 songs last night, and I think Chris did a great job, he sounded way better than Adam on all 3 of his songs. Since when did the judges start judging the contestants on the last night on just them through the season and not the song they just sung? And then the rest of the judges followed suit on the last song with both Chris and Adam. To me just plain wrong. It seems to me that they are trying to get Adam to win, and that's why they never said anything bad to him at all. Not right.

I think Simon meant that the song sucked, which it did. That was the song that was assigned and both had to sing it. I thought Kris sounded weak, Adam is in a league of his own. Since I now have confidence that wonderful careers happen no matter where they place, I don't get as worked up about an odd loss now and then :)

I guess it just depends on what type of music you like. I for one loved Adam's first two songs and I loved Kris's first song, didn't care for his second song at all and didn't care for either of them on the third song.

I guess we will find out what happens in a few hours, but my vote went to Adam. I just like the rocky edge that he has.

I am really enjoying the show tonight.

Lots of big names on here tonight. I loved Adam with Kiss. As soon as he started singing Beth I yelled at the hubby to get his butt in here because Kiss was going to on and he says no, they wouldn't be on Idol. I said watch they will be on.

Just about time for the final. We will know if a few minutes who the winner is.

Well Kris won it. Good job Kris, but I still liked Adam better.

Kris is good, but I think he's going to end up like Rueban Studdard, we'll just see him now and then on Idol, or maybe Taylor Hicks. Adam will be on tour! They both are good people and will do well.

Sad

Adam deserved to win

As far as the haters on his screaming (not screaming he hits the notes perfectly) all i have to say is AEROSMITH and Steven Tyler

Kris is ok but not nearly in the same leauge

Kris is a good vocalist and a likeable guy, but no doubt the majority of votes were cast by swooning teenage girls who choose looks over talent every time. He simply pales into insignificance next to the unique and original talent that is Adam.
Sad to say, the best man did NOT win, and the great American public proved what narrow minded bigoted morons the majority of them are.
