    Adam Lambert of American Idol fame, do you love him, like him, hate him, or do you just not give a fuck?

    Hey, you figured out polls pretty quick!

    I thought he was great! I've only watched american idol for the past three or four seasons, and he has been the only contestant that I was motivated to buy music from.

    Others were ok, talented, etc., but he took it to another level. I'm still kerfluffled that he didn't win. (based on talent alone, he should have - based on all other factors that go into the voting process... maybe these factors shouldn't play a role, but it's hard to see how to avoid them)

    So, I voted "love him" - just on talent alone.

    I know, he's been the most orginal and talented contestant I've ever seen on the show. ANd I've seen all 8 seasons!!!:eek: But I was SO mad when he lost to common everyday guy Kris Allen, he was my 4th favorite...

    My rankings for the Top 13:
    13th Meagan Joy Corkrey
    12th Jorge Nunez
    11th Scott McIntyre
    10th Jasmine Murray
    9th Michael Sarver
    8th Anoop Desai
    7th Matt Giraud
    6th Lil Rounds
    5th Danny Gokey
    4th Kris Allen
    3rd Alexis Grace (Total bull that she didnt go on Tour!!! But I went anyway!:D
    2nd Allison Iraheta
    1st Adam Lambert

    And I think that alot of people from the Semis were eliminated too soon. Notable people: Kristen,Jessie,Tatiana,Ju'Not,Felicia,Mischovanna. But who have been some of your favs on the show?

    I thought Meagan had an interesting voice and style, but it became clear pretty quick that she wasn't holding up well in the competition (maybe lack of experience?).

    I'd probably put her 11th. Otherwise I like your rankings. Alexis did get booted too early (not sure how she would have done really, so maybe I'd put her 5th).

    Ju'Not was very good too. Tatiana was talented but I might not have been able to take all the drama if she had been on the show.

    I thought Carly got robbed last year (or the year before? I forget when she was on). Blake Lewis was good too - different at least.

    The funny thing is that after the show ends I have a really hard time remembering anyone. When I watch the show I try to remember each person's performance at the end - sometimes I only remember one or two. When Simon says a performance was "forgettable" he's not wrong, usually - if anything, he doesn't say it enough. Given that,
    I remember almost all of Adam's performances, still - and maybe one from Blake Lewis, one from that Nickelback dude - the cover of 'walk the line'; and a vague impression of Carly. Oh, and Katherine McPhee singing 'over the rainbow' - but that's about it.

    He has an incredible voice. America totally made the wrong choice (or at least the typical one, voting for the nice, safe bland commercial top-40/one hit wonder singer).

    Yeah, Carly was my fav in Season 7. I remember litterally being in tears when they said she was going home. I think it was because of the song she sang.(Jesus Christ Superstar)

    My Top 5 for every season would probably be:

    1st Kelly Clarkson
    2nd Nikki McKibbin
    3rd Tamyra Gray
    4th Christina Christian
    5th Ryan Starr

    Season 2-
    1st Ruben Studdard
    2nd Kim Locke
    3rd Trenyce
    4th Clay Aiken
    5th Kimberly Caldwell

    Season 3-
    1st Diana Degarmo
    2nd LaToya London
    3rd Fantasia
    4th Jennifer Hudson
    5th Amy Adams

    Season 4-
    1st Bo Bice
    2nd Jessica Sierra
    3rd Carrie Underwood
    4th Vonzell Soloman
    5th Constantine

    Season 5-
    1st Chris Daughtry
    2nd Katherine McPhee
    3rd Kellie Pickler
    4th Mandisa
    5th Melissa McGhee

    Season 6-
    1st Melinda Doolittle
    2nd Jordin Sparks
    3rd LaKisha Jones
    4th Gina Glockson
    5th Phil Stacey

    Season 7-
    1st Carly Smithson
    2nd Michael Johns
    3rd Amanda Overmyer
    4th David Cook
    5th Brooke White

    And you already know Season 8!!!;) But yeah, I'm a total fan of this show!!! But I have a question, did you like when Adam sang Ring of Fire?

    BUT, I was SO glad that Danny Gokey didnt even make it to the finals. But, I cant believe he stayed after Scream On, oh sorry! Dream On, and Allison left after an amazing renedition of Cry Baby...:cry:

    Spot on! Danny Gokey was ok but he totally blew Dream On, if you're gonna scream like a rocker you'd better well damn do it great or you're just going to sound lame. And yeah I thought Allison was great doing Cry Baby too!

    And Adam was best of all of them, that guy has a voice that just impresses the hell out of me, wish I could sing like that. He'd be excellent in a hard rock/heavy metal band. And how cool would it be too jam with KISS? Awesome. :)

    I really liked it. It was weird, but the notes he hit and the transitions between them were fascinating.

    I think someone else here (or maybe on fark or somewhere) that he had "borrowed" it from Dilana (on that rock singer show with Tommy Lee and Jason Newsted) - and I think I remember her doing it, but I thought his take on it was simply better.

    That was the one performance though that got me to buy his stuff from itunes.
    And as I am a raging death/black metal fiend (though with a few other interests), this was a real accomplishment for him for me, dawg.

    Yeah, Gokey really bored me from early on. He's talented (can't scream though!), but was just too boring.

    I was in total shock the first time I heard it, I felt kinda violated for some reason:confused:, but after I watched it back, I LOVED it!!! Oh, when the new season starts, do you want to just message each other about it? No one really watches the show with me besides my mom....

    Sure. Let me know when it's starting though - I don't have TV service currently. AI may be the one show I miss, and if I get tempted enough I may get cable again... a co-worker and I used to spend too much time dissecting it after each episode...

    But without Paula this year I wonder... the chemistry with the judges may be strange.

    Awww, fuck me. I forgot that we're stuck with Kara "monkey face" DiaGuardi. As coked out Paula was, I'm gonna miss her!!!:cry: Btw, whats been your fav season? I loved Seasons 1,2,and 8. But Season 7 had more people I liked in the Top 10 than any other season. But I guess its a tie, Adam just made that season even more incredible...!:banana:
