If he released an album I liked, then yeah, I'd say I was pleasantly surprised.

Your "get over it" implied that we're dissing Kris because he beat Adam. Not the case. We honestly find him a little dull.

If anyone's interested, there are a slew of links about the finale here:

Why him and not to Roland Orzabal of Tears for Fears? I assume they all get a cut.

I know quite a few moms with that body. They're in my Pilates classes.

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.

Awe thanks and BF1 too . I think I am probably more upset about the fact that people may have been afraid to like him because he is brilliantly different. I hope it was about what he may or maynot have been.

Because that song's mini-resurgence and the performance were all because of Gary Jules' version. (Seriously, I'd never even heard the song before Donnie Darko came out.)

Yes I'm sure there are many I ain't birthed no babies and my body looks ZERO like that. I also ain't done any Pilates, so that would have something to do with it...it was just a cliche comment.

I do think it was a silly AI gimmick, but anything for ratings I guess. I would much rather see David Cook or Chris Daughtry in a Speedo. But I guess they don't care about their female viewers

The first time I heard that version of Mad World was a couple of years ago during Christmas on Virgin Radio. They were always playing it and like you I had no idea Tears for Fears wrote and performed the song.

What's embarrassing is that I'd had a copy of Tears For Fears greatest hits CD for a long time by that point. I'd just apparently never paid attention to the song!

Good for her. Is the guy originally from Maine? I did not know until this morning that she is Regis Philbin's cousin.

thanks for pointing that out

it seems like many think the others were just props in Adam's world.


and I am thinking if the final 3 were Kris, Allison and Adam

and Allison was cut many of her fans would have gone over to Adam.


I think when contestants get cut early their fans fade, last night their were no Megan fans to really consider.


just my thoughts.

Yes, Captain Obvious here. But it just seems silly to say people didn't like Adam when in fact he came in second and received millions and millions of votes throughout the season.

That's what I mean

Jules owns that song now.


I wish Adam had taken a forgetable song rearranged it and blown it up.

I think he was capable, instead of just doing a Jules imitation.

I remember on one of the Rock Star shows (not sure if it was INXS or not) but one contestant took a Britney song and really did a great version.
