    CONGRATS to Adam for being in the finale! You're already a star, Adam..and last night's performance proved it when you sang "We Are The Champions". BEST of luck to you.

    Right On!

    Adam really should have won this tonite, but alas we get yet another "contemporary" singer/artist! I think it's bogus. But in the end I predict that down the line as has happened in the past once Adam gets to making his music he will outsell Kris by a long shot!

    I couldn't care less who sells more records after the show. It's just a silly TV show and many of the finalists will sell records this year. I voted for Kris, who could outsell all of the other finalists, but if he does, that won't mean anything to me. The show is over, I might buy CDs from Kris and Adam, but the sales rates for each performer bore me.

    I think the reason people mention this is that it's a true indication of a performer's popularity--kind of the fans putting their money where their mouths are. And in the end, that's really what defines their success, like it or not.

    While Adam wasn't my favorite, I will admit that he can sing (except when he does that screechy tongue out thing). He did an amazing job all season and last night's performance with Kiss was AMAZING. He will have a bright future ahead of him

    Although we knew he was a talent, could you believe that he stepped in with two HUGE iconic rocks bands and sang as if he had been there forever?

    I don't just don't care whether one AI performer is "more popular" than another after the show. It's not high school. I love Elliott Yamin and have his two CDs. He's sold fewer CDs than Carrie Underwood. But that doesn't change how I feel about Elliott, Carrie or their stints on AI. I still think Elliott deserved to win AI even though he's sold fewer CDs than some other finalists.

    of course he did, he's been performing since he was 10. I never denied that he knew how to work a stage or could sing. I just don't like when he does that screechy note with his tongue sticking out Sounds like a cat in heat

    I totally agree with all you said...especially the parts about Elliott, of course!

    I am sure both Kris and Adam will have very successful careers...I personally like Kris's style and tone of voice way over Adam's theatrics and screaming; but I do know there are many people who like that. To each his own...I wish them both the best!
