American Idol hasn't had very much luck with their winners lately, or really ever. With the exceptions of Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, and some would argue Jordin Sparks the winners usually don't have any kind of career. Runner ups though usually fair a bit better, Jennifer Hudson won a freaking Oscar for goodness sakes!!!
Now another runner up has broken a record that nobody thought would happen; Adam Lambert has become the first openly gay artist to debut on top of the billboard charts. Not only am I happy for the crush of my dreams, but this proves once and for all people don't care who you go to bed with as long as you out out good work.
