Time for some true confessions.

So, as you are undoubtedly aware, American Idol just wrapped up its 8th season. We’re curious. Are you a closet fan? An unabashed supporter? A lapsed fan? Or are you an ardent hater of the TV show that will not die?
Tons of people are still talking about the show’s season finale and the fate of runner-up Adam Lambert, including Clay Aiken ( “I thought my ears would bleed”), and Kiss frontman Gene Simmons, who feels Lambert has a voice unsuitable for “Louie Louie.” “He sounds much more convincing singing ballads and Broadway shows,” says Simmons. “His voice doesn’t seem to have a ‘rock quality.’ But, I’m sure he’s going to do just fine.”
We want to hear your opinions. Do you dig the show? And if so, how does winner Kris Allen stack up against past winners like Taylor Hicks and Carrie Underwood? Don’t be shy.
