I have a couple of opinions on all of this controversy. First and formost: Adam Lambert IS BETTER OFF LOSING. This way he doesn't have to comply with the pablum-bland treacle that the "Idol" producers were make him release on his album. (Oh, and two words: JENNIFER HUDSON.)
Anyway. Kris Allen was very good, but even he was shocked--if not chagrined by his win, saying that "this belongs to Adam". I don't believe I've ever heard another "Idol" winner say that about another contestant.
So yeah. WOW.
