Fans pack the Tulsa BOK Center to cheer for 'Idols'

Fans packed the arena to cheer for their favorite singers from the top 10 finalists of America's most popular TV show's eighth season.

Winner and Arkansas homeboy Kris Allen and runner-up Adam Lambert closed the show and drew the biggest cheers — but their sets could not have been more different.

Allen played stripped-down, soulful versions of pop and rock favorites, while Lambert played a sexed-up set of metal-infused, artsy glam rock.

Allen — sporting jeans and a plaid shirt — opted for a set that included Bill Withers' "Ain't No Sunshine," the Killers' "All These Things I've Done" and the Beatles' "Hey Jude."

Lambert, decked out in a spiked black leather jacket and sparkly belt buckle, slithered through a set that included Tears for Fears' "Mad World," Muse's "Starlight" and a medley of David Bowie hits.

  1. I went to the idol concert in Tulsa and it was AMAZING!!! Actually all of the Idols were really good. They impressed me alot! However, THE MAN, Adam Lambert KILLED the show!!! The other Idols didn't even compare to him! HE IS A ROCK STAR!!! He is just awesome!! The man could sing the freaking phonebook and still make me weak at the knees... I almost fainted when he ripped his jacket off before he started one of his songs... He is soooo yummy!!! So glad u have this blog bc now I can keep up better with what he's doing!
