I really thought Adam would win, but personally I liked Kris more so I was happy he made it. I like his low-key style more, but I think Adam is going to end up having a huge career anyways because he does have an amazing voice and such a huge stage presence.

I was hoping to see Danny & Allison as the final two…but then look at Jennifer Hudson…she’s become a superstar (and TOTALLY deserved to). Clay Aiken…where is he now…ya know…it’s almost hit or miss…Kelly & Carrie have built their careers up as well as Chris Daughtry….I really think it depends on the songs they come out with after the show.
I met Kelly and Clay on tour….Kelly was a bit b&tchy….Chris was trying to hide from the paparazzi that WASN’T there….eh…

I was so shocked too…I think Adam is a really amazing performer and like you, I wanted to watch just to see him! Kris is good too, but…there’s not really a contest in terms of talent, in my opinion!

BUT, I actually think it worked out for the best. After hearing that song whoever won is meant to release as their first single, I was like, OH NO, I hope Adam loses, because it would be ridiculous if they tried to make him all "pop." So I’m kind of glad he lost, because now he can make the album he wants to make with the label he wants, and he’s obviously going to be really successful (hello, Chris Daughtry! I nearly cried when he got kicked off like 3 years ago and look at him now!). And I think Kris is more AI and will do well with the popstar thing. So although I heart Adam, I’m glad he lost!

@Soon2BMrsMcD – Kelly is a bit of a screamer….she was in my hotel for 2 days and a tad too high maintenance…..the fire alarm went off & she got super angry & cussing about it. Britney wasn’t that bad when she was there.

I was THRILLED that Kris one!! I love his sound and I would definitely buy his album.  Adam is definitely talented, but you could not have paid me to listen to the kind of CD that he’ll probably put together. I definitely think the best contestant won!

I’m glad Kris won. I love his sound. Adam is certainly talented, but I would not buy a whole abulm of the screeching (sorry Adam fans). He’s just not my cup of tea. Now, I would go see him on Broadway, but as a rocker, no.

This is how I see it (and called it about 4 weeks ago). Kris is WAY more marketable. Adam is extremely talented but he won’t be selling millions of albums (millions of tickets to a theatre show, perhaps). Kris is very likeable and was getting a lot of slack from the judges.

What REALLY bothered me about Adam was that he came into this competition at his audition saying he was a theatre guy. I didn’t find him genuine as a rocker, it seemd like just another character/act for him. The second he figured out the game, he rolled with it. He is extremely talented but what’s more is, he is EXTREMELY smart. Last week when he chose an Aerosmith song? A TOTALY slap in the face at Danny who couldn’t pull the band off. He played the game well, but got too cocky, in my opinion.

I could see him  on Broadway in no time, perhaps playing Freddie Mercury in We Will Rock You.

Kris will go on selling many albums, for sure.

I was totally shocked when Kris won, however my Fiance and I let out a whooop of joy! I like him sooo much better than Adam. From the start the whole show seemed to be about Adam and I feel that really took away from the talent of the other contestants.

@gaBgal i agree with you 100%, once Adam figured out the game it played it well, like Survivor (sorry reality TV junkie). But the screeching got to be a bit too much. I think Kris is just as creative, think about what he did with "Heartbreaker" that was awesome.

I can’t wait to see what he comes up with for his album, as for Adam I’m sure that he will have a great career. And was a very gracious looser, there was an article on Yahoo this morning with his interview after the show.

Now I cant wait for "So you think you can dance"!!

Ugg! I was so mad at myself today! I tivod AI last night, I made the mistake of getting on Yahoo (which I kept telling myself all day to stay away from that site because they always have the biggest news on the front page).

Although I was disappointed that Chris won, I can see why. He is VERY marketable (the younger girls will buy his albums up like crazy, he’s a good southern boy and is someone you can totally see on teen bop).

I know that Adam is going to go on and do bigger and better things though. He won’t be tied down to AI, forever atleast, so he will be able to have more freedom. He’s an amazing artist, so no matter what he ends up doing, he will be great at it!

I have to say though, I loved the performances last night!! Chris with Keith Urban and Adam with Kiss! What could have been better!! ๐Ÿ™‚
