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.

Well of course Gokey fans sided with Kris. It's not all because of the Christian thing its because of their rivalry with Adam's fans. They either voted for Kris or didn't vote at all. Kris deserved all those votes no matter who they came from and he won. Give it a rest, everybody!

Im a Danny Gokey fan! After Danny Gokey was eleminated, I voted for Adam Lambert, I dont think Kris Allen is a good singer, dont get me wrong, he is talented. I think he won because he is really good looking. Adam Lambert will be a major star, I just wish he wouldnt wear all that makeup and get a makeover, and I wish he wasnt gay. He really is good looking, kinda looks like Elvis Prelsy.

Kris won because the phone lines for Adam were blocked.
