Although Adam was an early favorite with his huge vocals and in-your-face style and confidence, it was never a foregone conclusion he would win the final vote, reports The New York Daily News. For Lambert, a wild card was his sexuality – few months ago he was spotted kissing a man.
Also his singing and fashion style was reminiscent of gay icons from Queen singer Freddie Mercury to k.d. Lang.
As for Allen, he often talked about his wife and his church attendance.
