“Idol” Judge Outs Adam Lambert On “The View”

“American Idol” judge Kara DioGuardi appeared on “The View” today, and she was asked about runner-up Adam Lambert’s sexuality. Now, throughout the whole season of “American Idol,” people debated whether or not Adam was gay — his trademark look is gobs of glittery eye makeup, after all. However, the contestant never discussed his sexual preferences publicly. On “The View,” Kara said, “I don’t think Adam was ever in [the closet]. I think he was always openly out.” Keep reading »

Was “American Idol” Fixed?

Last week, when underdog Kris Allen won “American Idol” over clear favorite Adam Lambert, my jaw dropped. I wanted to call foul, but I didn’t have proof until today. According to the New York Times, last week’s “Idol” finale is the new 2000 election. They say the vote may have been unfairly rigged, thanks to some wheeling and dealing by AT&T, Idol’s main corporate sponsor. Recount in Arkansas! Please, thank you! After the jump, the sordid details. Keep reading »

Should Adam Lambert Be Queen’s Next Frontman?

You know that Queen song where they chant “no time for losers” really obnoxiously for, like, five minutes? Well Entertainment Weekly is suggesting the band make time for “American Idol” loser runner-up Adam Lambert. Since Queen’s lead singer, Paul Rodgers, recently peaced out the band, they need a replacement ASAP. And on the last episode of “Idol,” Kris Allen did a duet of Queen’s “Champions” with Lambert, and his flamboyancy totally reminded us of late Queen singer Freddie Mercury. EW says Adam “has the musical chops and stage presence vital to preserving Queen’s signature sound.” So, should Adam pick up the phone and call Queen, stat? Or should he concentrate on churning out his own tunes? [EW] Keep reading »

Kris Allen Beats Adam Lambert For The Title of “American Idol”

I don’t think I’ve seen America so wound up over the results of an election since November. In case you live under a rock, Kris Allen, the Jack Johnson-type from Arkansas, beat out glam-rocker Adam Lambert from San Diego for the title of “American Idol” last night. The star-studded season finale, which included performances by Cyndi Lauper, KISS, Queen, and a host of other music legends, ran over two hours. “It feels good,” Kris replied when Ryan asked how it felt to win, “but Adam deserves this.” If Twitter-verse is any indication, a lot of America agrees with him.

    “American Idol” Smackdown: Adam Lambert Vs. Kris Allen. Who Will Win Tonight?

    Last night was the battle of the roommates on “American Idol.” Xenu-enthusiasts Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise watched as the always dramatic Adam Lambert and the quietly confident Kris Allen duked it out vocally. In round one, each one chose his favorite song of the competition. Adam brought back “Mad World,” and Kris made us swoon with “Ain’t No Sunshine When She’s Gone.” Next, producer Simon Fuller picked the songs—Adam got Sam Cooke’s “A Change Is Gonna Come,” while Kris funked out Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On.” Finally, we suffered through the contestants’ renditions of “No Boundaries,” co-written by judge Kara DioGuardi. Equally awe inspiring, in a bad way, was Paula in a day-glow green getup and Simon in a shirt unbuttoned to his bellybutton.

    I know neither of these guys really wants to win because they both read my post last week about how guys who take home the “American Idol” title are eternally cursed. But since I can’t make up my mind about who I want to win, here’s a side-by-side look at these vocal monsters. Keep reading »

    The Curse of the American (Idol) Male

    We were bummed last week when Ali Iraheta got the chop after what seemed like a flawless, if somewhat copycat, rendition of Janis Joplin’s “Cry Baby.” The top three is now a total sausage-fest—only Adam Lambert, Kris Allen, and Danny Gokey remain. If these dudes are smart, they should be scheming up ways to get eliminated this week. “Idol” history proves that no dude in the top two ever goes on to good. Check out the bad luck that’s befallen the top male Idols. Keep reading »
