Kradam Finale! The Story Behind the Thumbnails
This story was shared by a friend of the Allen Family who attended the rehearsals this week in LA!
Did you notice Kris had his thumbnail repainted? Can you guess who painted it? That's right! Adam Lambert! Kris performed during Rock week with a painted thumbnail, and his homecoming footage captured the chipped polish. Tuesday night, however, Kris performed one of the best performances of the night (and the season, might I add) with a freshly painted thumbnail.
According to Megan Malone, Adam painted Kris's thumbnail after the homecoming visits and removed the polish from one of his own nails, stating "If you can carry around a piece of me, man; I can do the same for you." Malone said, "The Allens believe Kris wears the black fingernail polish in support of Adam because he wanted Adam in the finale. Also, Kris wanted to dispel any rumors claiming the two weren’t great friends." Kris and Adam were roommates in the Idol Mansion throughout their stay.
Thanks Megan for sharing the sweet story!
I figured I would post this because everyone in the American Idol posts has been asking about the story behind the painted thumb nail thing and let's be honest: It's precious.
