Q: All right. What was it like singing with Queen and KISS tonight
A: Oh my god, what an honor. Queen is like one of my all time favorite rock bands, and then to be up on stage with KISS with the pyro and the costumes -- I mean, it was a dream come true. It was awesome.

Here's Rolling Stone's Live Blog from last night's American Idol finale:
9:18 pm: WOW! Glambert meets KISS! You wanted the best and you got it! “BETH!” Wow. LOVE those…uh…shoulder pads? Snake cages? What the hell is that you’re wearing? Fire your LOVE GUN, Glambert. He is KILLING “Detroit Rock City.”
9:21 pm: KISS Meet The Phantom of the Park had nothing on KISS Meet The Phantom of The Glamb-Screech!9:24 pm: That was even greater than Cyndi with Allison. To recover, I’m going to need some cold gin, tequila, vodka and orange juice.
9:26 pm: Well, THAT was a star. Maybe if Adam doesn't join Queen as their new lead singer, he could tour with KISS. 9:28 pm: This is so my now it’s not even funny. Adam rocking (and rolling over) with KISS was just about the best thing on Idol ALL SEASON LONG.

"Both Allen and Lambert stood out in the finale, but the two performances with the most juice both featured Adam: He strapped on cage-like studded shoulder pads Brandon Flowers would covet and sang Kiss’ “Beth,” then joined the face-painted legends for “Detroit Rock City” and “Rock & Roll All Nite.” As Gene Simmons’ tongue lashed beside him, Lambert punctuated the latter with a blistering scream from deep within his velvet goldmine."
According to Newsday.com, "guitars get destroyed, fire flies, and Adam closes with his trademark scream, looking right at home (gold platform boots and all). Audience goes nuts."
