James’ Durbinators and the residents of Adam Lambert’s Glam Nation can hold hands in peace once more, as the two former Idols have settled their differences and ended their supposed feud once and for all. And there’s no better way to publicly end a highly publicized spat than on the most public of forums, Twitter.

The Season 10 heavy metal rocker took to the social networking site to message the Season 8 runner-up in a series of tweets:

@adamlambert Hey dude! Id really enjoy grabbing some lunch with you and just talking about all this Idol/Post Idol stuff! I could really use…Some one on one advice. Regardless of any supposed bad blood, Im calling truce. Anyway.thats me. Glad your tour is goin great…direct message me if this is something that you might be interested in doing. Thanks for the consideration!  -James…Have I shocked any DURBINATORS with that one? lol Adam was totally cool when we met! Just so yall know!

Adam wrote back to Durbin, saying, “haha why don’t we just go ahead and discuss it right now over twitter? I’d be honored to advise… :) #nobadblood

Head to MJs Big Blog for their whole conversation.

The drama between the two former Idols began when Lambert (who had previously met James during an Idol taping) told The Hollywood Reporter that he was “kind of over” James, and called him a “copycat” who was “trying too hard”. (Let it be clear that THR was asking him to critique and give his honest thoughts on Season 10’s batch of hopefuls, so it’s not like the criticism came out of nowhere.)

In an interview with MTV, James was asked about Adam’s comments, and James seemed genuinely hurt. “I was nothing more than nice to that guy,” he said. “You know, he decided to take it to a different level. So, whatever.”

Adam responded to the media attention the story was getting by tweeting, “in regards to Idol I’ve said way too much. Media turns non-personal, honest opinions into “feuds”…like mom taught:  ‘if u don’t have anything nice to say- don’t say it all’  sorry if I hurt any feelings- not my intent.”

Now that Adam and James have called truce, let’s lay this one to bed, kay? Now, if only Lil Kim and Nicki Minaj could kiss and make up as easily.
