Adam Lambert and Kris Allen

I was lucky enough to attend last night’s American Idol finals at the Nokia Theater/L.A. Live in Los Angeles. As a long time fan of the franchise in general and a major fan of this season’s Kris/Adam showdown in particular, I was especially excited to be there. Given the electric energy in the room, I’m pretty sure I wasn’t alone in my excitement.

Although Kris was technically crowned our new American Idol, Adam was also a winner in that he already has a huge passionate fan base. They’re both already stars. As Simon said, they’re not only talented but they’re also really nice guys. And they genuinely seem to like and respect each other. I love that.

The show was an embarassment of riches, with this season’s Idol finalists performing with music legends ranging from Cyndi Lauper to Rod Stewart, The Black Eyed Peas to Queen, Jason Mraz to Queen Latifah, Lionel Richie to Kiss. Kris and Adam’s performance of “We Are the Champions” with the surviving members of Queen was a highlight for me, as was Adam’s medley with Kiss. (I guess I’m a sucker for 70s glam rock.) I can still feel the heat from the on stage pyrotechnics at the Nokia.

What was your favorite performance last night? Please share your comments below. And voice your choice in today’s featured poll about the ladies of the evening: Fergie, Queen Latifah, and Cyndi Lauper. I’m already going through Idol withdrawal and can’t wait ’til next season!
