I'm not a viewer of the TV talent show American Idol, but from what I do know, that Adam guy got robbed.
He'll join the ranks of Jennifer Hudson and Chris Daughtry as American Idol "losers" who have outshown (by far) the respective winners in the years they competed.
Ten or fifteen years from now, we'll still be talking about Adam Lambert as an artist and a star, while Kris Whatever-His-Name-Is will join Ruben Studdard, Fantasia Barrino, and Taylor Hicks as mere cultural footnotes or a Trivial Pursuit question: "Who was the guy who beat megastar Adam Lambert on American Idol only to release some lame over-produced pop album that went nowhere ... just like his career?"
I have no stake in the outcome and, as I said, don't even watch American Idol. But I recognize unique talent and artistry when I see it. Mark my words, Adam may just go on to be the biggest star of all the American Idol alumni.
