Gokey Voters Sided With Kris Allen

5/28/2009 1:19 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

American Idol Kris Allen Adam LambertSources at "American Idol" tell us the margin between Kris Allen and Adam Lambert "wasn't even close" -- and the biggest factor in Allen's win was Danny Gokey.

Here's what we know. The "lion's share" of Gokey's votes went to Kris Allen. The extent of the lopsidedness surprised a lot of the big wigs at "A.I." We were not told the exact votes but our sources say the AT&T scandal had no impact on the outcome -- the spread was that wide.

On Faox good day LA, they had sources that said the only reason the numbers of votes for each was not give out this year for the first time was because the count betwwn the contestants was so close it would have potentially been contraversial. It became that way anyway, when later, it was the AT & T phone scandel. The difference in the number of votes between the winner and runner up was given all previous sever saasons- not this time as I said. And Fos am show sources said, once again I repeat, it was so close as to be a potentioan situation is numbers were revealed.

Sooo, actually, as our daily reported many weeks ago, it was the *church* vote?! If Allen would've lost, those votes would've gone to Gokey -- and it happened vice versa. With all due respect, Lambert didn't stand a chance among the bible thumpers. I believe in G-d, too...but it doesn't influence my AI vote!!

Get Over it! Not everybody likes Adam, or has to. It's not the fact that he's gay or not; it's the way he screeches. It's annoying having to hear him scream and screech every song he sings.

Is it me? Or does Adam look like a vampire?

There is no such thing as reality tv    

We knew it wasn't close. AI/Ryan Seacrest would have said so, as they did when Reuben and Clay competed.

However, Adam should have won. But he is not conservative enough for the American AI voters. And for all those people say Adam screams , did you watch when he sang subdued songs beautifully like "Tracks of My Tears" and "Mad World"?

(AT & T should not have helped Kris Allen's fans out unless they did the same for Adam. IMO. Damages the already screwed up AI voting system and reputation).

Danny Gokey supporters were posting some really really nasty/homophobic stuff about Adam on all the blogs. Basically saying "Support Chris we can't let that homo Adam win. So this isn't really a shock.

Well when 38 million votes come out of a state with a population under 3 million (AT&T, FOX, AP all claimed that, then "suddenly"/ very quickly retracted it)- I wonder why the margin was so wide. But the AT&T phones had nothing to do with it. I may watch AI in the future, but I won't spend anytime, let alone any $ voting on this sham of a competition.

The only reason Chris won is because he's good looking.

He lost because not everyone liked him and he is already a professional singer!
It was not the "church" vote but the "I think Adam is annoying as hell" vote.
Plus a lot of us out there hated the way they talked about him winning it all every week for 12 weeks.
To prove my point check out how the ratings were lowest of any of the previous seasons.
