I have already downloaded a few of Adams songs!
I liked Dannys voice so I'll be checking out some of his songs too.

Adam and Kris about each other. from Entertainment Weekly
Quote:
EW:Your friendship with Kris has been pretty amazing to watch. On paper, you don't necessarily have a lot in common. What brought you guys together?

Adam: Yeah. We were roommates, so we were kind thrown in together, and he's just like a really open minded, good person. He's got a great view of the world. We share a lot of philosophies on the world, even though we have different backgrounds. You know, I've learned a lot about his relationship with his wife. She's great. We've hung out. He's just a good guy, you know?

So you're happy he won?
I'm so happy for him. He deserves it. He's so talented, and he's a good person

EW- your friendship with Adam has been really great to watch over the course of the season. On paper, you don't necessarily have a lot in common. How did you guys find that common ground?

Kris: For me, I feel like I relate to a lot of people. And we got to be roommates. It was just like this closeness, you know? I don't know what happened. I think we just felt each other's energy, and it was nice. It just became this really good friendship. Yeah, I adore the guy. I think he's a really great guy. I'm proud of him.

But don't you fret. Adam will be juuuuuuuust fine. And probably even better off.

I think last year was a bit of an upset as well, with Cook winning over Archie. Not as big as an upset as this year, but still.

I do agree, Adam's screeching was a big problem. I honestly don't think it had much/anything to do with his sexual orientation-sure he's "flamboyant" and all that but so are other performers. He's a natural born performer, and I think he's actually more of a performer than a singer. With the right career path I think Adam could be a big star-Kris, not really. Unless he goes country.
I too had a pretty strong feeling it was going to be Kris - he simply has more mainstream appeal. Adam will go on to do much bigger things, I think. I also don't think it had anything to do with his sexuality. My officemate, for example, is in her 60s and doesn't watch Idol but she's an ol' 60s rock & roll hippie at heart, and founded an organization years ago that deals with AIDS/HIV awareness and health care - i.e., doesn't have a homophobic cell in her body. I had her watch two of the best performances by each of them, and while she thought they could both sing, she found Adam's screaming annoying. I think there were a lot of voters like that.

I also think a lot of people just related to Kris more. Adam exuded confidence and was so comfortable in his skin and onstage, and people went for the underdog, the humble guy next door they related to.

But I disagree with deep that Adam should have toned it down. I think it's great that he was himself throughout the show and I think he knew that by being true to himself he'd get the attention (and thus, the record deal) he really wanted. Now he's not all locked into the Idol contract and can entertain probably more attractive offers that are closer to what he really wants to do.

ETA: Also, most of my gay male friends preferred Kris.

Well, that was fast. Kris and Adam both signed contracts with RCA.

Color me oh-so-surprised!

I'm really curious to see what kind of record Adam will put out.

Adam will make a good record. Kris will not.

That is the simple truth, I do believe.

Kris will make a boring record. I hope Adam will put out something interesting. I'd rather hear something different than just some straight-forward rock where he does too much screeching.

Was it just me, or did he not really start doing the too-much-screeching until further into the competition? I thought I remembered him keeping it subtle and being much more awesome earlier in the show. Then it seemed like he started doing the screeching more and more frequently.

So, I just downloaded Adam's version of No Boundaries and *small voice* I really like it /*smallvoice*. I need help so very desperately.

Adam will be fine, I will be first in line to legally purchase his album.

I think when the Idols actually release their respective (physical) CDs, it should include their Idol performances as a bonus, or released in two versions with the performances part of the "deluxe" version. It would help sales too. Just my two cents.

Both Kris & Adam were on the local Fox News affiliate this morning. Kris had about 2 hours of sleep, Adam about 45 minutes. Not much new to add to the conversation though.

Lambert was over sold. For EW to put him on the cover two weeks ago, practically crowning him as the Idol, was ridiculous. Americans like the underdog, pure and simple.
