KRIS FOR THE FINAL! I'm so impressed with him tonight.

I agree with this article.'One' is a song with beautiful sad lyrics & tune. I wanted Adam to sing it simply and with his heart like he did with Tracks of my Tears. Should I be blaming Simon, not Adam? It did not engage the audience enough. Maybe the studio version will be okay. I do love the lyrics to that song.

The other two had bad songs for the judges' choices. Kris' song 'Apologize' was a bit out of his range although not a terrible choice. I liked his version, I liked it with less instrumentation than the original, just the piano. You are right that he should have looked at the camera more. And the camera should have done more close-ups on Kris' face instead of doing long-shots of his back (we don't care about his back!). The piano sounded great but perhaps it hindered Kris' ability to engage with the audience emotionally.

Kris nailed a brave song choice,'Heartless'. It was a bit desperate, a bit depressed, a bit broken, a bit sexy, a bit dark, a bit assertive. I was a bit confused when nice-guy Kris sang the line, "you need to watch the way you talking to me, yo".

Adam is by far the most talented, and has the most star potential.

Kris and Danny should be in the finals! Adam is great but I wish he didn't already know it. He plays to the camera too much with his sly smile and pointy tongue sticking out. I don't think the judges should tell people to vote for him either. Hopefully this show isn't rigged like Celebrity Apprentice.

Adam has to go! I can't for the life of me figure out what type of album he would make. I'm so tired of his "screaming". Kris is by far the most talented. A true artist. The judges already have Adam the winner. I hope the people show them that American Idol is still sbout who the people like and not about their comments. Go Kris!

Hmmmmmm.....
I'm sorry but Karaoke Gokey MUST leave.
I'm still not over that scream from last week.
Him and his Sally Jesse Raphael glasses need the boot.
He really is the Taylor Hicks of this season minus the gray hair.
I'd go with Kris, Adam is too screechy.
I would love to see Adam do some Judas Priest.
Nobody on earth can hit them notes besids Rob Halford and Adam.
And their both gay. Coincidence???
No way.

Im starting to get annoyed with Adam's screetching every week...and he really butchered two great songs this week with that annoying screetch. So for me I hope he goes and I would never buy any of his stuff as I just can't get over that screaming anymore. Was a big Danny fan but hes been doing a lot of Blah performances lately...song choices last night were horrible for him...why not sing songs that America would know? Thats who's voting for you.

Kris is now my front runner. He can sing...and he doesn't scream...stays current. My vote is for Kris.

I'm so happy to see I'm not the only one who Adam bugs the crap out of! Yay!

I would buy an album of Chris'... never Adam's. Never... couldn't stand to hear a whole CD of him screaming.

Kris appeals to a much wider audience.. He is so much more mellow and can sing a wider variety of music.. Adam is a screamer and not too many people could stand to listen to a whole CD of that!

You have GOT to be kidding. Adam Lambert is the best singer I've heard in years. He can do ballad, he can do rock, he can do anything with that range and voice he has. Best singer on that show, ever!

I totally agree with you. Kris and Danny, OMG. You can't even compare those two to Adam. Adam is the best, and that's all there is to it.

Definitely, you are so right! You took the words out of my mouth. LOL. He can sing anything. He can sing Happy Birthday, and it will be on his album.

Kris Allen for me is the american idol here. I mean, as a marketing expert in the industry, i believe he is the most marketable of the lot. Nothing against adam at all, his voice is definitely right on, technically perfect. And he has obsessed fans out there. But i just don't see him selling as much albums and recording great songs. I think Kris is very current and would create more songs that 'may' not top the billboards, but would keep him relevant in the industry.

Told you so!*giggle* Just kidding, Adam is good too, but doesn't appeal to the bigger audience.:) He was tops in his high school drama club, I'm sure and he can sing a good tune.. Rocked with Kiss last night, that was fun!

I tried to vote for Chris but couldn't get through!

Chris Allen is our American Idol for 2009! WOO HOO GO CHRIS!:o)

Adam and Kris are both extremely talented in their own right. Kris will make a great country music artist, Adam will be a rocker for life.

I think Adam has more stage presence and is more of a stage entertainer. Kris will be fine on records, but he doesn't seem to love the stage the way Adam does. To me, Adam was the whole package - perfect pitch voice, the ability to entertain an audience and not afraid to take chances. His flamboyance may have scared some voters away, but that's what entertainment is about - being an entertainer. And losing last night may have actually been the best thing for Adam because now he's not under an Idol contract (other than the summer tour) so he's free to expand his career without Idol interference.
