Kris Allen and Adam Lambert Photos on the Today Show

Do You Still Care About the Idol Conspiracy Theories?

Kris Allen was crowned the winner of American Idol last week, but at the time most of your disagreed with the results and the media are still questioning his victory over Adam Lambert. The New York Times reported that AT&T hooked up Kris's fans with free cell phones and text messaging at various Idol parties, though FOX has already denied that the voting was skewed. Other sources claim that it wasn't a close race since Danny Gokey's fans supported Kris in the finals. There are rumors of rigged voting every year but there didn't seem to be hard feelings when Kris and Adam performed together on The Today Show this morning. So tell us — do you still care about the Idol conspiracy theories?

i'm not happy with the results but it's over. move on, pining over it won't change anything. hopefully, they both will have successful careers in their own genre of music. so yeah, Get over it those who aren't over it yet.

PS: Which is not to say Adam won't be successful, I was merely responding to Kythera's comment.

The only runner up to have a bigger career than the winner was Clay Aiken. Forgive any spelling errors, but Justin Guarini, Dianna DiGarmo, Bo Bice, Catherine McPhee, Blake Lewis, David Archuleta - they're not doing much of anything these days.

I definitely think people should let it go. Clearly Adam has.

Our daily paper wrote, about a month ago, of the church vote...and how they hoped it wouldn't influence AI voting as the past 2 Repub elections had been influenced. Don't blame me! This is what they wrote. And so, in a way, by Kris winning, it *does* point out that the regular churchgoer wins over the more satanic one. Yes, Danny was a churchy type too and lost. I think all 4 at the top were great, but clearly Adam was more talented...but not what the public wanted.

"top downloads," duh

I like them both, both were accidentally revealed to be the downloads on iTunes during the show, so them as the top two was no surprise, and with Danny gone, it made the most sense that his votes went to someone with similar music, aka Kris. Move on gets my overwhelming vote.... If it was rigged, wouldn't they have gone with the supposed front-runner anyway?

I have to admit I was kind of surprised. (Not that I even watched but just when I turned on the news the next morning.) It's been my theory that many are inclined to vote for the person they think "needs" their help...which might explain these final results.

I'm over it but I think Adam is clearly more talented, don't get me wrong Kris is talented too but not as good as Adam, but I think it worked out for the better because Adam doesn't have to be limited to a certain song or type of music. He is going to be successful no matter what! Same goes for Kris! Love them both, they seem like very good guys. :)

It's not like I'm freaking out about it, but it wouldn't surprise me if this was rigged. Don't the runner ups usually become more popular than the winners anyways? Just sayin'...
