Now that surprises me, even an as old straight guy, I understand why woman of all ages would be attracted to Adam. Pretty much every woman I've heard talk about the show thinks Adam is hot The guy has charisma oozing out of his fingernails, a winning smile and oh is remarkably talented. Honest to God rock star qualities. Chris has conventional good looks the kind of guy you'd be happy your daughter married.

Other than Meghan it has been lousy year for us guys though.

He does absolutely nothing for me, though I don't know why not. I guess he's not my type. I just don't believe his act is genuine. Even his sincerity strikes me as phony.

Always had a soft spot for those edgy bad boy rockers. Jim Morrison, Robert Plant, etc. Adam's off screen personality is so different from when's he's on stage. Not sure what's real, but who does with Idol? All I can say is when he's on stage, I'm fastinated. Just curious, what kinda guy gets your motor purrin, other than your SO?

I will miss Allison I simply fell in love with her. For such a young girl, I give her props for handling this so well.

I was completely blown away by her incredible goodbye performance. She is a true artist - - she was in tears but instead of letting that hinder her music, to cope with her feelings she poured them all into that song.

As for attractive celebrities? Clint Eastwood, and more now than ever.

I'm with you ! Remember David from HGTV design store ? He was gay but sooo hot . I think Kris is also sexy in a boyish way .

Me either. I don't think I have ever been attracted to a man wearing makeup or jewelry or having his eye brows styled or... but I like 70's hair styles on guys though (slightly long)

With Allison gone, my interest in the show is almost gone. What a shame! At least Danny showed genuine shock when her departure was announced. I'm sure he's a good guy but for me he just doesn't have any star quality. Maybe he'll have a chance to surprise us.

But I don't think it's even a contest anymore. Adam will run away with it. Kris will come in second. Danny a very lame third.

Adam is very talented but I wonder if he really has any chance at wide appeal. He is such an odd combination, the pretty bad boy but gay. I wonder if he would have any lasting appeal as a pop singer? Maybe he'll find a bigger role in musical theatre. He's really perfect in that area with his over the top performances.

Hey, being gay rocker should HELP Adam, it certainly did NOT hurt Freddie Mercury........

I think you underestimate the group of people that would probably buy his music...people under the age of 30...a great majority of them don't care what a person's sexuality is and I'm guessing that many of them actually prefer someone who is a little different. And aren't most rock singers (notice I didn't say pop singers), a little over the top anyway?

No matter what, Danny will sell more albums than Adam. Rock and roll, although big, is not as big as it once was, pop music and R&B are bigger, and country is growing every year. Carrie Underwood is doing pretty well as a Christian music and country star. Neither Adam or David Cook are Chris Daughtry material, he has the "edge" to his voice that rock fans love.......

I really wasn't questioning his future popularity because he is gay. Not in the least. It's his personality that I'm in doubts about. Like W2R said, he seems like a phoney, as if he's been acting and performing his whole life. My reactions are personal and since I'm an Oldster, I am very likely way off base. So I'm going to defer to you guys.

I think Adam would do great in Las Vegas, changing costumes every 30 minutes and covering different music genres. Or another Freddie Mercury type in a rock band, but I have a feeling Adam would probably enjoy the Las Vegas scenes more and make more money.

I hope Danny won't become another Taylor Hicks, but I have a feeling he might.

I didn't watch the results show, but I am not really surprised that Allison lost. I never understood the appeal of Allison, sure she could sing but no real personality, and horrible fashion sense.

I think Adam will easily win the contest and will produce a platinum record. Danny will come in second, and Chris a distant 3rd. i am not sure either Danny or Chris will have much of future in the music industry, although I certainly can see Chris as the lead singer for a boy band.

I guess this difference in a opinion is why the show is so popular. Although, my interest has flagged in the last month just because I think the winner is obvious.

Why does everyone assume Adam is the winner when Danny is the only one never to have been in the bottom 3. I think Adams followers are Adam followers, could it be that others are 'anyone but Adam' followers.
