VH1 has just premiered a preview of the upcoming Adam Lambert "Behind The Music" special, and what strikes me the most about it--other than Adam's new tawny tan and almost Jedwardian skyscraper hairdo, both of which he unsurprisingly, totally pulls off--is all the Kradam love here.
"He was the guyliner guy, and I was the guy next door who plays guitar and sings love song to his girl. The show knew exactly
what they were doing, obviously," Adam's onetime Season 8 "Idol" rival, Kris Allen, smirks in the cold open of the clip. "They wanted to pit us against each other!" The preview then brushes on Kris and Adam's TV bromance, including that DVR-able moment when Kris won "American Idol" and--after detangling himself from the Kradam bear hug that has no doubt been turned into an animated GIF-wall thousands of times--blurted out, "Adam deserves this!"
"Adam is awesome and he deserved it just as much as I did," Kris tells the "Behind The Music" cameras. Aw. Then, in Adam's own interview, he says: "Kris and I had talked right before the final show, and we were both like, 'It really doesn't matter what happens now.' Because when you get to the end of a show like that, your career is already going to take off to a different stratosphere."
Yes, it's all a pleasant reminder of what was far-and-away the most exciting season of "Idol" ever, not to mention the most excting "Idol" finale. And even if you're not a Kris fan, there's plenty of Rolling Stone trouser-snakery, photos of the "guyliner guy's" ever-evolving looks, and unfiltered Glambert gabbing to entertain you. See, there's something here for all fans of Season 8! (Okay, maybe not for Danny Gokey fans...)
