American Idol Season 8 Season Finale

Kris and Adam Bring Their Best to Their Final Idol Faceoff

Last night's final showdown between Adam Lambert and Kris Allen was exciting and entertaining. I can't remember the last season of American Idol where I really didn't care which person won because they were both so great in different ways. Cute Kris has such a sweet and talented voice, while Adam has showmanship like no other contestant we've seen on the Idol stage. It's bound to be a close race, and these two men seem to both be humbled and happy just to be a part of the action.

The judges said their praises throughout the evening with Simon giving Kris round one. Adam took round two, and without officially saying it, the judges basically crowned him this year's new worldwide star. Kris held his own, and at the end the judges were thrilled he made it to the finale but they made it seem like he was second choice. The exciting night brought out a few big stars like Katie and Suri and Anthony Hopkins. Buzz was also at the show and has more details of how the evening went down. She even met up with the contestants after their show, so click here to see what they had to say about last night's big finale.

Um it doesn't matter what Adams sexual preference is he is an awesome singer and I love that he is true to himself!! So with that being said Adam is still going to win!!! :)

Kara's song was awful, but Adam did the best he could with it. Go Adam!

Agree that the song was horrendous. I've loved this season if AI! Can't remember one I've liked this much since the Daughtry season. They both deserve to win, but I prefer Kris. Good luck to them.

the only reason why people like adam is because he can squeal when he sings. personally, i think his voice is VERY annoying and his style is OH so wrong. to all you adam fans: http://tonicgossip.com/2009/03/03/adam-lambert-is-so-gay/

The best part about last night was Carrie Underwood performing at the end.The best part of the contestants singing was ANYTHING but that last song. If they make that the single for whoever wins I don't see the winner getting off to a good start.

The song Kara helped write was a horrible song, I'm not sure any singer could sing that! Anyway I think Adam is going to win he has his own uniqueness about him, like prince does. No one can sing a prince song just like no one would be able to sing an Adam song, that is when he has a song. We can't say that about Kris, although he is a great singer as well. Adam for the win!!!

i like Adam but I don't really like his voice, it kinda annoys me after awhile. Kris on the other hand i can listen to all day. I do think Adam will win but I really wish Kris would.

"exciting and entertaining"?? Don't know what show you were watching. That Kara crap song was atrocious on its own, and the poor kids could do nothing to save it.

This is the first year that I haven’t been able to follow A.I. I'm not sure what the problem is....I've really tried, but I can't seem to get interested in it.
