Adam Lambert sparked quite the commotion after American Idol ran 9 minutes over time this week, resulting in an estimated 3 million DVR users to miss his performance. This blooper evoked worry in a lot of Adam Lambert fans that it would skew his vote count.
“Lambert, one of this season’s most popular Idolettes, was not given the old heave-ho the next night; it was Scott MacIntyre instead who had received the fewest votes from viewers Tuesday night and was removed from the competition at the end of last night’s results-and-product-plugging show,” the Washington Post assured.
Another self esteem booster came for Adam Lambert when Cowell gave the American Idol contestant a standing ovation. Yes, the infamously cruel Simon actually cheered for another round. Wow!
