American Idol Finale Red Carpet Interviews

Former Idol Contestants Come Out to Cheer on Kris and Adam

Just moments ago, the stars finished walking the red carpet outside the Nokia Theater here in Los Angeles for the American Idol finale! A bunch of former Idol contestants made it down to Sugar's corner of the world to share their thoughts on this season's big showdown.

Blake Lewis, who was out on the red carpet working for, said he'd been an Adam Lambert fan but thought Kris Allen was going to walk away with the title. Paris Bennett said she was rooting for Adam all season long, but last night she voted five times for each singer. Mandisa's a Kris fan who said even she couldn't get through to vote last night. Bo Bice was pulling for Danny Gokey and said the whole contest might come down to which contestant got Danny's voters on his side.

I saw just a blur of David Cook and David Archuleta as they rushed by on their way inside, and Ruben Studdard stopped briefly but wouldn't offer a prediction, saying only that the winner would be "some guy who sang last night." But Ruben's name did get invoked in another evaluation of the finale: former Idol producer Nigel Lythgoe compared this year's Kris vs. Adam finale to the epic Ruben/Clay battle from season two.

Stay tuned for lots more from the Idol press room!
