Do You Agree With the Winner of American Idol?

We have a winner! I can't believe that's it for American Idol season eight. What do you think of this result?

I've noticed that a lot of Kris haters are anonymous. Just wondering, is there a reason? I have never watched American Idol, but they both seem cool, and have unique styles.

wow, Mod16, prejudice much? Yay!!! We all have a new Mrz, Jack Johnson, Mayer wannabe!!!! Woop woop!!! I exactly wanted another artist I would never buy the album of. !!! :::RAISE THE ROOF:: - for another "artist" worth squat! How generic. Besides, Adam will be fine... but Kris needed this to be famous for at least a day!

Wow there are some opinions on this matter, lol. I know a lot of trained singers/musicians and we all seem to agree that yes Adam is the better (technical singer)for him it's effortless he's a natural. Kris on the other hand is the well rounded musician/singer/artist his appeal is certainly more main stream than Adam's. Yes this is a singing competition and by that standard I agree Adam should hold the title but come on are we honestly going to suggest that tens of millions of voters are going to sit by their phones like Federal Judges prepared to judge with out prejudice, I don't think so. Don't disparage Kris too much though, he may not have the technical effortlessness that Adam has but he is amazing in his own right for different reasons. Adam was treated very unfairly because for some one who displayed the up most humility when ever paid a compliment his image was distorted by constant over the top hyping by the judges and by the media. Yes every one loved him but when you can't over saturate pop culture with out a back lash of disinterest. None of that was Adams doing though and that's what was unfair.

I voted, TWICE. Kris can't hold a candle to Adam. Full stop. But I'm more of a classic/glam rock kind of gal, not a mayer/mraz kind of girl. Who out there is making music like Adam right now? And yet there are not one but TWO comparable and very similar artists doing Kris's thing (mraz/mayer). Kris is okay, don't get me wrong. I'm just an Adam fan: cult classic not best seller.

I liked both of them.I know Adam is going to have a great career.I knew he wasn't going to win and it's not because he is gay.The type of music he is going to make is not going to make idol millions although I'm sure whoever he signs with and whatever album he makes will sell.Kris is commerciable.He is the type of guy that idol likes and that is why he won.

I really liked both of them, but I wanted Kris to win. Whatever though, they're both going to be succesful.

Also, anonymous commenters can't subscribe, right? So you're actually refreshing the page or coming back to see what others have said, but then you criticize the way others spend their time. Hypocrisy is fun!

Actually, Deker if you bothered to actually read the comments, you will see that I said Kris' music is more my style. And, I've never met CG, so I'm certainly not her body guard. It's so fun to assume things about people and then make snarky remarks about them!

I also think it's great that when your first comment was deleted since you attacked another member in it, you reposted. Seriously, you crack me up!

Maybe she just stumbled across it. You don't know where/how she found it. I might expect a 13-year-old to be as concerned as you seem to be with what other people do, but not a grown adult.

CG, you took the required 30 seconds to change your avatar? Wow, you are really freaking out!

I didn't see too much of this season, but I think they are both talented and like some of the others have said, they'll both have good careers. Just look at Archie! That said, I really watched the finale to see David Cook :).

Adam is obviously an amazing singer, but I really could never picture myself buying one of his albums. Just not my type of music. I actually bought a lot of Kris Allen's singles off itunes, so I ended up voting for him. I'm sure Adam will have an amazing career, but I think in the AI universe Kris is a lot more marketable.

I am SO glad Adam didnt win! I love him, but now he's free to do whatever he wants and I pray he drops his album, blows Kris out the water, than comes to Broadway ASAP!
