LISTEN: That Other American Idol Guy Has a New Single

You know the winner of American Idol was actually not the homosexual, right? Had Adam Lambert not been part of the competition, we’d be fawning over cutey Kris Allen and his twink good looks. But maybe his new single “Live Like We’re Dying,” from his album that drops Nov. 17, will help earn him some gay favor. Because we love catchy pop hooks.

  • NEEZY!!

    The song is good….moving on what I’m interested in is Adam will he have a female love interest or a male? I know he’ll be the male Lady Gaga but it makes me think that there won’t be any obvious love songs about a guy :|

    @dgz: so, is it a new single for this dude or did Queerty get ANOTHER thing wrong.

    I like this song. This sounds pretty good. Now I have to check out The Script.

    LOL. I forgot this dude’s name. I had to look at the picture. I’m sure Kris Allen will be a huge hit. Hell, Daughtry is and I thought he’d fail.

    I loved Kris on the show and I’m just let down by this. I will possibly be a radio hit but it’s as generic as they come. He was great when he surprised us. This doesn’t have the thoughtful quality of most of his idol covers and it also doesn’t have the originality of the heartless cover. It could have been written for and performed by anyone.

    a gay will never win american idol

    Sorry… this song sucks.

    Adam Lambert is the only one from last year’s Idol that anyone will remember 5 years from now.
