Adam Lambert/Kris Allen, also known as Kradam, is the RPF pairing of musicians Adam Lambert and Kris Allen. The two of them were contestants on American Idol Season Eight in 2009, where they were quite bromance-y and known for being good friends and touching a lot. The pairing was consequently at the height of its popularity during 2009-2010, until AI Season 9 rolled around. However, they remain one of AI's most popular pairings. Fanac for the pairing is mainly fanfiction and gif making.
