American Idol recently got a second wind when ABC picked up the show after Fox dropped it in 2016. While the singing competition was a household favorite for years, it was plagued with its share of scandals. You probably never knew the lawsuits, accusations, and more that surrounded the once-most popular show on television.

Illegal voting may have cost Adam Lambert the competition

When Kris Allen beat Adam Lambert to win the show during Season 8, a scandal dubbed “Textgate” was soon uncovered. AT&T admitted to handing out cell phones to some of Kris Allen’s fans so they could vote for the singer to win the show. The company allegedly also helped teach fans how to send up to 10 votes at a time to ensure Allen’s win. Fox said all of the votes were closely monitored, and Allen’s win was deemed fair.

Well of course they are going to say that.

Ugh, it still makes my blood boil whenever this comes up! I was upset when Kris was announced the winner and even my dad said "that's wrong"! I couldn't sleep for nights thinking how Kris's people cheated, then I would cry. Adam was robbed of the title, but flash forward 2018 Adam is successful beyond his and our dreams! Kris Allen? Where are they now?

I've always loved that photo of comically smug! much of his personality in it.

Well Adam actually won in the end, and I am sure he is happy coming in 2nd, but if he is actually telling the truth, it must hurt deep down, although he would never admit it. That would sound like a poor loser. He really like Kris too, and I am sure Kris knew nothing about the way the votes came in. If he did find out like we have, I am sure the producers would have jumped on him to not say anything. What's done is done. Kris is more of a family man with wife and child, and I am sure he could not have the life style of the musician as Adam is free to do. He does have 3 or 4 million in the bank.

I think we the fans are more upset about this then Adam is. We just love that man and it was so obvious and wrong!

I hate this subject .. it just makes my pacemaker work harder!! I was so upset for so long because we knew they cheated but everybody said ADAM lost because of his sexuality & other reasons!! THAT was NOT the reason & I'm glad it has finally come out!! Now I can really forget about it ... Kris is a nice guy but he must have known about it ... how could he not!?

tess4ADAM(LAMBERT Outlaw)!

I really don't think Kris knew about at the time. He surely knows now. But the producers of the show, at the time were also aware afterwards, and then they would not change anything. It's a done deal, and Adam has not lost any revenue over it, except the initial winner and 2nd place $ award. Kris got 350,000, and Adam got 300,000, plus each got a car plus a few other things. That was over 9 years ago, when do we forget about it and drop the subject, as Adam has done.
