Adam Lambert & Kris Allen give pre-finale interview and neither looks like an asshat
Here are a few choice quotes:
Allen dismissed the idea that his background as a Christian church singer would give him a boost.
Winning “has to do with talent,” he said. “It’s not about religion or all that stuff.”
Lambert said, “I’d hope people would vote based on what they hear. It’s an equal opportunity situation.
Oh wow. So this guy who is a worship leader at his church back home in Arkansas thinks religion is a private thing and shouldn’t be factored into a singing competition / Championship of Artistry? Even if Bill O’Reilly disagrees with him. Love it.
But you must forgive Fox and the GOP. These days, they claim liberal elitism through condiment choice so naturally, they’re in desperate need of content.
Anyway, Lambert & HBD act all charming because they’re getting used to this “being famous” shit, and say some other things to make their little fan groups SQUEE and THUD and whatever else fan groups do when they’re giddy with wanton excitement.
Asked how they will prepare tomorrow before the show, they gave answers that show their different personalities. “I’m going to go rehearse and then just try and get ready,” Allen said; Lambert offered, “I’m going to order a really big room service breakfast.” Including something with “lots of hollandaise.”
Further elaborating on the differences, Lambert said, “I have a very messy bathroom situation. Kris has like three products and I have every product I can get my hands on.”
All kidding aside, Lambert summed up the excitement for both: “At this point we both feel like we’ve already won.”
