Top 4: We now have our final three

** SPOILER ALERT: Wednesday night’s blog reveals the contestant leaving the show. Do not visit this entry of the blog if you do not want to know the results. **

It's over, and I'm a little sad.

And a tad bit surprised. It didn't quite shake out quite the way I thought it would.

Ryan says he thinks he'll be playing Allison's records on the radio real soon. Do you agree? Is she destined for a career like Chris Daughtry's?

We want to hear from you. Post your comments below or head over to iReport to submit videos of your reaction.

    Adam is the man..... he will go all the way! Chris will come in second and Danny will go home this week. That's the way I view this weeks turnout. Allison will end up doing a duo with Adam and that will be awesome. I saw her on Ellen yesterday and she sounded pretty bad, but if she chooses the correct song, she' great! The girls love Adam and Chris, especially Chris!! I'm 64 years old and Idol has been my favorite show since it started. I knew Carry Underwood was going to
    win and thought Clay was going to win as well, but he came in second. It seems the last three or four standing always get contracts.
    Give all those kids a big CHEER for busting out and giving it their best.

    The final four are all talented. What I didn't like about last week is that you have two definite "rockers" and two other artists that are not rockers. A.I. should have done this week when there were 7 or 8 contestants still singing. I like all of the finals but putting them in order I would pick Kris (a true artist), Allison, Danny and Adam (he is too theatrical for me....belongs on Broadway). I will be voting the Kris to the end of his ride.

    I see a lot fo support from the "old rocker" crowd... 3 points...

    1) I'm also an Allison Fan, but think Adam is more talented and Kris has the best sound to sell records in today's market...

    2) I'm guessing that the "old rocker" crowd doesn't vote 100 times apiece, let alone at least once, feeling that's the fair way to show support...

    3) Is "old rocker" code for, "I'm not allowed to live within 1000 yards of a school or park and if I move I have to notify the community??"

    She's 17, and one person hit it on the head... She'll be a Miley Cyrus type when her album drops... She was already using props (learned 3 chords so she could stand behind a guitar a few weeks back)... Not that it's a bad thing, but I'm guessing she'll be forced to become a sellout commodity, and not a true artist. I think that, at 17, that's what she can hope for; she's definately got the voice and a fun personality, but she is not an artist, there is only one true artist in this show, and that's Kris... Adam is an entertainer to the nth degree, Danny is a back-story and is living on a wing and a prayer... Over and over Kris has been singled out by other contestants as being a true student of his craft. I'm pretty sure Adam will/should win, but I'm guessing that I'll be buying a Kris Allen album as my first AI grad album...

    We Love Adam!! Today my husband and I had a great talk with our kids about what the fuss is all about with him. We were able to tell them that we would support them through any funky phase and even support them through an alternative lifestyle as long as they were safe and happy. Adam stirs us up when he performs. We do not need him to "represent America" or to "idolize him."
    Go Adam. This mom will be voting.

    I do agree that Allison should have stayed another week. With all-do-respect to any Chris fans, he should have gone home. He hasn't improved over the last couple of weeks. From the beginning, the judges all agree that Allison, though just 17, is enormously talented and has continued to progress over the weeks. Though, over the past couple of seasons of AI, this is the epitome of what it's become- a popularity contest. Those with the best voices tend to never provail- Daughtry, Carly Smithson, Lil' Rounds, etc.......

    everyone saying Danny one scream note tues. night annoyed them and he should have went home. Adam screams in all his songs and they are annoying. Both Danny and Adam can sing, but Danny is a more versatile singer. Adam sings rock thats it. Danny isnt getting sympathy votes. they brought up his wife during auditions and thats it. no one thinking about that now. I know Adam will win b/c AI has picked him since the top 13 was picked. im pulling for Danny!!!!

    Yes 'k',
    I am in tune to your opinion. Each of the final 3 have a great competition it itself primarily because of their different forms.
    As far as the Allison craze of her defeat, buying her upcoming album
    would perhaps be less expensive than the original Joplin (or anyone for that matter).
    I see individuals winning who believe in themselves.
    All my best to all of them!

    I really expected an Adam and Allison final. They had the most range in their voices and they could do ballads and rock very well. Kris is so generic it's like eating dry toast listening to him. He's not bad but there is nothing about him that sets him apart from singers I hear in restaurants and at weddings. Danny has some uniqueness but he's not in the same league as Allison and Adam.

    Gokey or Kris, both should have gone home! Allison and Adam rocked,. I think Allison will have a hit, we will be hearing more of her for sure... no matter who wins. Learning from past A.I. its not always who wins..Its who has the talent not the votes. Allison and Adam will have the music careers. Adam actually is the BEST Ive seen on A I in a long time. And I love the way he is with Alison. You can see he cares for her like she really is a little sister...
    And yes, Kara needs to go. She is so boring and phoney.

    Bonnie, There are plenty of patriotic Americans who Wear black nail polish, who listen to goth music, who are gay, thats such a biased and bigoted statement. America if you have forgotten was created by foriegners from across the sea. The only true americans are the american Indians and we know how they were treated. So get off your high horse and realize Adam is America, free to be who you are and able to express that amzing talent each week in front of millions.

    Allison, though very talented at 17, sounds the same no matter what she sings......Gokey is amazing!!!!!! Kris shows true artistry and Adam is a showman who tries new things and delivers. I think Kris was the weakest link, but they're where they are for a reason.

    My family has watched Idol since season one. I did not really watch many shows fully over the years with the exception of Kellie Pickler and Carrie Underwoods years. Allison caught my attention early this year and her and Adam were the reason for the first time I joined the family for every show.

    From the start of the season it has been clear Adam has this all locked up but Allison as number two would have set the stage for some fantastic duets. Something is wrong when she gets bumped.

    I too would buy her music and hope we see more of her!

    Every year I tune into one or two shows of AI just to see if there's anyone worth watching, and every year it's the same old selection of cute-but-dull boys cynically courting the teenage vote, warbling girls who can't stay on a note for more than a nanosecond, and increasingly bizarre and meaningless platitudes from most of the judges. At no point have I ever believed that one of the unthreatening cute guys with their safe, conservative performances has ever "made a song their own" or exhibited any star quality. And at no point have I ever wanted to listen again to one of the girls elaborate around every note but the one they're meant to be hitting in the hope that it will inject some false emotion into the song. They've all been, well, boring.

    But this year… this year is the only year I've been tempted to keep on coming back week after week to watch and listen, and Adam is the reason. His voice blows everyone else away and he has what the others lack – genuine stage presence. I couldn't care less what he does with his private life and neither should anyone else. He is a star in the making and I would buy his albums and pay to see him perform live any day. If he doesn't win the TV show battle, give it a couple of years and we'll see who ultimately wins the chart war.

    To Matt at 10:24, when you and others have a chance take a look at this video of the same demographic that you thought was not listening to Allison, a young girl crying her heart out for Allison....http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QRcNbI6ZMuA
    In my opinion, Allison WILL become a superstar, she has the most unique voice of this season! I will not watch the rest of this season and with Simon's in particular, but all of the judges' awful attitude towards contestants that THEY brought in, I don't know if I will ever watch AI again, I love music and hearing young people sings songs that were classics before they were even born, and that's one of the reasons that I watch AI...but no more. I loved every one of Allison's song choices, and Cry Baby was no different, I re-listened to JJ's Canada performance on YouTube after and loved, LOVED what Allison did with it. I looked forward every week to hearing her and the show is now too boring for me, the last 3 are boring and predictable. With that one scream from hell, Danny should have gone home. VFTW, Simon and those who could not get Allison's talent created a travesty on wednesday.

Simon looked so sad and forlorn after you sang Cry Baby your last night. He knows that the voters had it all wrong. We love you and your God-given talent, Allison!! THANK YOU!!!

    I don't have any respect for Danny, I don't care how well he sings at times. His personality has shown through loud and clear: He thinks he's knows better than the mentors, he doesn't accept the judges critiques, he is smug with little real emotion showing AND what was up with the horrible behavior caught on the cake fight clip. Danny, or as like to call him "Gropey Gokey" seemed to taking alot of pent up frustration on grabbing Allison multiple times. In fun of course...wink wink...either way he got his hands on her. Very inappropriate. You could see the other males were backed away from the developing antics. Adam, Matt and Kris all got to the background BECAUSE THEY ARE MATURE!!! Allison is 17 for pete's sake. Danny is the last contestant at this point I would want my kid to look to as a role model.

    I make this comment is specific reference to why Allison got the lowest number of votes this time around. I think that female fans adoring of their favorite male performers turn out in thousands. I believe that alot of males don't display the same interest in the show or show the ferver in the voting. Last year, Jordan won because we, the females really like her AND she was not competing against a heartthrob, sorry Blake. Allison was able to stay in so long because she really is a very talented singer and performer. The viewers/voters enjoy her and see her potential. I think, in the end, alot of "her" votes went to Adam as fans were wanting to keep him in the competition. I hope that Allison knows that making it to the top 4 show just how popular she is and that her success will only increase as the summer tour takes place. Go Allison!!

    Allison works hard at her craft and is a talented singer/entertainer. I would buy her cd in an instant! She brings back a characteristic female style we haven't had for quite a while . For all the comments from the judeges that her personality did not come through, I disagree. I think the combination of the short candid video clips together with the performances showed us that she is well-grounded, has a level head and really enjoys what she does. I hope we do hear her on the radio!

    Well I wont be buying any Danny or Kris CD's no matter what....
    Daughtry sounded great. I bought his first CD and will buy his next. It was a shock when he didn't win in season 5 and I am afraid Adam may suffer the same fate if his fans don't vote religiously. That means hitting the re-dial consistantly for the entire 2 hours. Teenagers have that passion and determination. Some of us over 40 feel we have better things to do.
    Danny & Kris both with go the way of Taylor Hicks and some of the others that have competed but we don't hear of much anymore. I was disappointed that Allison went home. I will buy her CD when she puts one out and reserve the final judgement till I hear it.
    Bottom line they are all good in there own genre and have there own fans. I am in my 40's and I like rock and country. No matter how good Danny and Kris might be I would'nt buy what they make cause it's not my kind of music. I know that Adam will have a successful career due to his exposure on AI. It really makes no difference who wins at this point. The ultimate success or failure of the top 4 is the music they create on there own after this show. I will watch cause I want to see Adam perform. If he's not in the final two I will just wait to see who wins on-line. I have no reason to watch the other two.

    Amazing! Idol is as screwed up as American politics. Trish, your diatribe about Danny's virtues made me puke. I bet you liked Arthur Godfrey. There is only one talented performer remaining and two mediocre singers, both of whom could do better on a cruise ship or the Christian Broadcasting Network. I don't judge talent based on looks or sexual orientation. You all want another Taylor Hicks or Rueben Stoddard as your Idol vote for Gokey. With or without Idol Adam will be an international star. Like Simon says forgettable performances from forgettable performers. Adam will not be forgotten.

    Allison really drew my attention weeks ago when she sang "Alone". Since then she's been consistently awesome and has been my favorite to win it.
    She is at least as good as Kelly Clarkson.

    Adam is a talented musician, but he is sort of odd and his musical niche is 80s rock, so I don't know how well he'll actually do. Entertaining to watch nonetheless.

    I don't get why people like Adam Lambert so much? He ALWAYS relates to the over the top screaming. He rarely hits a note, rather slides into it. Of the 4 people left last night he was FAR and away #4. Simon wants to market him though, thus why they chose ROCK night last night so that he could have a wheelhouse week just before the finals. I can't wait for the Kris/Danny finale.

    The average of an American Idol viewer is 42. How many people 42 and older even vote once?

    The 60 million votes are probably 6 million teen age girls voting 10 times each for their heart throbs. That's why the women never do well on the show, and at the end of the day what does it matter...Adam won this year's Idol weeks ago.

    Allison's only weakness was she was a girl and teenage girls don't vote for other girls. Allison has a HUGE career and she just turned seventeen. She may become the biggest star of all this year.

    OMG! I can't even believe people compare Allison to Kelly Clarkson..Allison has it ALL OVER KELLY anyday..and not even the same style of singing. IF you close your eyes when she sings you almost think that Janis Joplin has come back! ONLY with a more controlled voice...Can you imagine if she had sang " Summertime" or " Turtle Blues" ? OMG.. she is SOooo going to make it anyway and I will snatch up all the records she ever puts out. I couldn't believe she was one to leave.

    Kris and Danny now sit under the shadow of Adam , who will more than likely , totally RULE the rest of the competition.

    I would have loved to have seen Alexis and Allison in the finals as the LAST TWO running for it. NOW that the only REAL talent left against Adam is gone..should be fairly boring from here on in.

    Allison was by far better than two of the male contestants not only Tuesday night but for the past couple of weeks. Some contestants were given A++ for trying!?? She's got a bright future ahead of her. Too bad that America seems to vote with their hormones not their ears for music or they listen to Simon who just couldn't warm up to her for whatever reason. She is an amazingly strong young women that can stay and play with the men ESPECIALLY when all 4 judges have all but handed the crown to Adam. She tried her best to take in their criticisim and grow and in the end she stayed true to herself. I look forward to hearing her songs on the radio in the near future. Rock on Allison!

  50. he's a winner vs a maniac

    If Adam wins it won't be fair. Anyone who's been performing in "Wicked" on Broadway is already a star. American Idol is to search for an Idol. Although he's good and trying to break into the music scene, someone should have picked him up long ago. He also is a screamer. Gorke, yes should go. However give Kris the right songs and he's a winner all the way. The teenager girls go for wild and who's cute. Listen to Kris next time around, this young man has talent.
    And Allison is great and got jipped by the younger generation and their voting.

    Kris should have gone home last night. He's been skating through the entire show. Allison is a much much better singer than him. Not to worry he'll be going home next week. Although I don't think Adam will win. Danny is a down home boy with a very soulful voice. Adam is a rocker and has probably been getting offers all through the contest. When observing Adam his look is I've got this. I don't think so. Rock is ok but not all the time. He sometimes gives me a headache. Go Danny

    I am also saddened that Allison went home. Let's look at the past AI competitions though. Out of the previous WINNERS, we have only had Kelly, Carrie, Jordan (questionable, although very talented) and David Cook who are extremely popular. Taylor is touring with Grease as Johnny Angel and only able to sell his new album in the lobby of the theater. Fantasia, well she's great too, but she's on Broadway away from the spotlight. Ruben, well, if he didn't go bankrupt, he may have done well. Now, how about the non-winners who have struck it big... Daughtry with a quad platinum record, and Kelly Pickler and Josh Grayson who are huge on the country circuit. Let's not forget about Jennifer Hudson who goes out of the spotlight for a while, regroups, comes back and wins an Academy Award, followed by a Grammy Award. So, with all this being said, I don't think ANYONE of us has a problem with seeing the last of Allison. I am also a huge fan of Adam Lambert who can sing just about anything and perform in just about every way possible. Danny Gokey, I believe will be another Taylor Hicks. I do think Chris will do well with one, maybe two hit singles (like Elliot Yasmin), but I don't think he'll do that well because he has a sound that is not unique. Danny Gokey has a unique sound, but even if he wins, his fame won't last long. To be honest, I think Danny is becoming a little irritating and I think that the judges, as well, are feeling the same way. I think, however, these contestants will be only as big as the world makes them through record sales etc. Not that I'm a judge or have any control, but I thought I would express my opinion based on my studies. By the way, I'm a college professor of the arts; mostly studying and teaching Pop Cultural Art, so I know a thing or two about these things. Have a great weekend everyone. 🙂

    I'm sorry to see ?Allison go this week. I'm not sure I'd but an album of hers only because I'm not sure she has the life experience to put out anything that I'd find relevant. I think she's money in the bank for the teen demographic though.

    I'm not sure what people see in Danny. He can sing well but watching him is like eating vanilla ice cream. It isn't bad but isn't worth the calories. I just don't see what kind of album he would put out, and thinking of seeing him in concert put visions of a very subdued crowed seated quietly around a small stage in my mind. It's not my thing.

    Kris and Adam are my picks and have been from the beginning. Both are true artists with their own unique signature.

    Caligirl I agree talent is cool, but if you think Adam is something your kids should idol, that scares me. If you want your kids should walk around screaming all the time and that is the only talent they should strive for, than Adam is your idol. Kris is the most multi talented, he can change it up, play the guitar and sing. He can do more than run around in nasty clothes with terrible looking makeup schreeching at the top of his lungs. He has done the same thing over and over, the only differences between performances was "do I wear the black eyeliner or the dark brown eyeliner?" That is not something I want my kids doing.

    Yes, I think I would buy her album CD and would welcome listening to her on the radio. That girl had moxy and awesome vocals. I think the voted the wrong person out last night. I am thinking that allot of fickle girls kept Kris in it more for his looks than his talent. As Allison had allot more talent than Kris, yet she is gone. I doesn't take a genius to figure out what happened. Voting her off was ashame. Kris is gone next week and Danny will make a rebound. Adam and Danny final two.

    I think Allison should have been in the top two. She has a great voice and she's only 17! With the right managers, agents, she should have a great career ahead of her. Adam is versatile, confident, entertaining and a wonderful singer. He should be the next American Idol. Danny is an okay singer and is getting the sympathy vote because his wife died. Kris is cute and sings okay but he's getting the teenybopper vote. My favorite is still Allison, though, because she has a great, low, smoky, type voice and really knows how to use it. I'm always moved when she sings. You go, girl!!

    Allison is a great singer! She would not have won but really deserved to be in the top two. Danny, I'm sorry. You are bland, you are a good singer, but not what I would call a chart topper. I am sure there is a cruise ship filled with old people just waiting to hear you sing. Kris "with a K", first off have your name changed to Chris like all men named Kris did. You are not bad,, but rocker, no. You can be the second act behind Danny. Finally Adam. GREAT! GREAT! GREAT! But please stop with the wild vocals! Lets hear that great voice without all the dramatics. You have won anyway.... regardless if it is the American Idol number one spot!

    I was sorry to see Allison leave, it should have been Kris or Danny. An Adam/Allison final would have been awesome! Adam is the complete package and has a long career ahead of him. He deserves to win although being tied to an AI contract for a year might be like wearing a ball and chain.
    Danny has potential but, to all you Adam haters, Danny's last note on Tuesday was what screeching is all about. And, by the way, I can only imagine the buzz on the blogs if Adam had dared to not accept the judges critizism and said he had to listen to the song first before believing what they said. Danny finally admitted it was bad but to say he 'laughed about it' ALL night? That's rather cocky don't you think? Maybe it gave us a little glimpse of the real Danny.....
    Kris is sweet and very likeable but not diverse enough. I am not sure he is ready for anything big, at least not until he believes in himself.
    Go Adam – your talent is unmatched! And all of you who have been on the 'hate Adam wagon' with your smear campaign and nasty comments, get a life and learn to root for someone without trashing the competition. It exposes your lack of character and invalidates everything you say.
    Good luck Allison – I am sure you'll do great things.

    Wrong, wrong, wrong. Allison is sooooooo much better than either Danny or Kris. Who do you know, at the tender age of 17, that can perform and sing like that? (She's a kid; so let her be a kid and not an adult at too early an age.) For too long has America languished in the realm of popular musical mediocrity and Danny and Kris are, comparatively, merely good. You did very well indeed Allison.
    Adam, he is in another league altogether; his is a pure god given talent honed to perfection; look into his eyes as he sings, yes liner and all, and you see the artist not just the man. He becomes the performance. He is musical genius and I love it, wether a psychedelic fire ring or tender tears, the ensuing experience evokes pure musical art.

    Thanks Annie for reading my opinion at least I think you did. I have always been a firm believer against the bias and prejudice voting techniques that would be difficult to fix on American Idol. It truly gives Idol a black cloud of nothing but a fixed show. Get rid of the teenybopper love sick he's so cute votes and have a real talent show voting system. But how do you cure this I guess you don't, I think Idol's about had it if they don't find a way. If the producers could rig a device to limit 3 votes per phone line this will eliminate Millions and Millions of teenybopper votes when only a Million actually voted. Anything to make it fair for the talented girls like Allison in the future. Let's not forget that Idol discriminates on age which is another issue.

    I think what happened is that people either like Adam and Allison or Danny and Kris. Before this week, people would split votes, e.g. one for Adam, one for Allison. Because of the Adam scare last week, the Adam fans stopped splitting votes. They only voted for him. So Allison lost all those votes.

    I was also hoping for an Adam/Allison final, but if one of them had to go home I am glad it wasn't Adam! Although I'm sad to see Allison go, I think the Adam fans did the right thing by only voting for him. Couldn't risk having him go home. Unbelievable talent!

    Give Allison a few more years of experience and character building and she'll knock everyone's socks off too.

    I believe that we'll be seeing more of Allison Iraheta. She's good at these midtempo rock driven songs. I imagine her doing an album in the vein of Pink and Kelly Clarkson. She is like a patchwork of those two singers vocallly. She should get Greg Wells, John Shanks, Max Martin (but not too many songs), Kristian Lundin, Ryan Tedder, Marti Fredriksen or a lesser known producer to produce her album. Those people come to mind when I think about how she's going to sound over their music and production.

    First off, to those who spelled it Chris, get it right! He spells Kris the way it should be spelled!

    Second, the voters got it right. Ship tried to get through when the lines first opened and couldn't get through on Kris or Danny. He forgot to try later so he actually didn't get a vote in, so it was a relief that everyone else got it right. This is a singing competition, not just a rock competition and Kris and Danny are the best pure singers this year. Adam is the most creative (although he should never have messed up "Ring of Fire) but not the best singer. And Allison is great but it was the right time for her to go. She'll have a fine career although Ship agrees with the comment that she needs to finish school first.

    When Kris was told he was safe last night, you can tell by Kris' shocked reaction that he thought he was going home. Kris knows he was the least talented of the four.

    Kris has made it this far because too many girls voted for him based on his looks and that distorted the results last night; most girls vote for "cute" guy singers; It's much less common for girls to vote for girl singers; I think that's why guys tend to stick around longer in the competition.

    Danny gets all of the sympathy votes because his wife died. Unfortunately, this is true. His talent is marginally applicable in the pop music world.

    Out of the top four, Allison has the most upside potential and the most pop music ready vocal talent. Adam is impressive, but he may be a one trick pony and his act may get old fast if he doesn't diversify. Adam's appeal and career may be limited or stunted by his gay status; How many gay music artists appeal to a mass audience? Danny and Kris just don't have the range and depth of vocals to be other than D-list vocal professionals.

    I can see Allison doing Pink type music, punk rock, although I think she has more vocal range than Pink and probably can crossover into Christina Aguilera and Kelly Clarkson type music, not to mention she can probably do some rock en Espanol.

    If I were a record producer, I would invest in Allison because she is ready to make hit songs today and she only needs a little fine-tuning. A producer would have to work on her overall presentation, media skills and engaging the crowd, but that will also come with age and maturity. If Allison were 24 years old today, she may have had the maturity to position herself better in terms of selling herself, making herself more popular, and subsequently beating her older Idol competitors.

Actually, I know it will NOT be the last time...I think viewers need to remember to vote for the artistic talent and NOT for the look or personality.

    The Votes don't even matter. The producers decide what will make the ratings. Yeah you call in and yeah you vote. They tell you all these people voted, but it is funny how every week is always record setting and how every year they set this record and that record. Listen, it is all about ratings and what the writers and producer think will make it better. I wouldn't be surprised if adam and ddanny go home, for the simple fact that kris is younger, a cute little kid that can be manipulated into what the idol-teers what him to be. He will never really have a career like adam or danny or alison will, so basically his best shot is to win. The producers know this, Just like chris Daughtery, everyone knew he was the best, but they asked him to leave so he could work on his career, it is all fixed.

    So I'm an Adam fan and was an Allison fan. Man I'm going to miss that little rocker chick. I know that she'll be just fine though.

    On the other hand,I think that Kris is taking a lot of hits for not being talented and I have to disagree. Of the final 4 does he have the best voice? No I think he is the weakest in that area and this IS a singing competition. However, I have been impressed with his ability to arrange music and keys to fit his singing ability. It isn't like karaoke where you tell them to throw the song down an octave. It takes talent and he is really good at that. Also, he's proving to be a very good guitar player. Am I the only one who his take on "She Works Hard For the Money"?

    I would never vote for Gokey and I'm sick of hearing people say that it wasn't fair that they had to do Rock when Gokey and Kris aren't as proficient at that genre... seriously? So Adam is the next Keith Urban then? please.. at least Kris has found acceptable adaptations to the various themes.

    Allison should have stayed and either Adam or Danny should have been sent home. Adam with his over-the-top shrieking and posturing is definitely not worthy of being an American Idol. Danny was just awful and is very limited as to what he can actually sing. Kris at least has shown growth and long-range potential (as had Allison). If either Adam or Danny wins then once again AI will have someone who won't be seen much in a few years time. So many "winning" idols are literally like "dust in the wind". Call-in popularity doesn't equate to actual salability/buying potential of any artist.

    Let's face it, Allison got kicked off because she had no fan base. Sad but true. She's still only 17, though, and has many opportunities in front of her because she didn't win. What 17 year old would want to get stuck with a specific label and manager forced upon her? She's got time to spread her wings, people, so relax.

    As for my favorite, I love Kris. His album is the only one I would even think of purchasing. Did he do a bad job last night? Of course. He is, however, a great performer, guitarist, and vocalist. He is definitely of the Jack Johnson/Matt Wertz/John Mayer group.

    Great results- way to idol voters. I'm proud of you. Danny's the winner. If Allison was a decent looking girl, she would had stayed all the way. The red hair and wacky clothing costed her this. The next is Adam. He lookes like will promot drugs- not singing.

    So here's the deal... I think the winner is going to be an upset. If Danny goes home next week... Kris wins; if Kris, Danny wins. They are splitting the Christian vote and the vote of those who just can't get down with Adam's "weird" performances. Watch... you will see. I just hope the judges don't set Kris up for failure in the song they pick for him!

    I think he is very talented... an amazing performer? Not so much. But his is an artist with a capital A.

    Last note... Danny's album would sound like a whisper to screaming roller coaster ride from start to finish.

    Allison's getting kicked off proves that Idol is a "total image" contest and not just a singing contest. Allison can sing better than both Danny and Kris and. based solely on talent, should have been one of the final two along with Adam. She never developed a fan base like Danny and Kris did by promoting their relatively wholesome all-American images. Nevertheless, she will resurface later as a star.

    First I have to get this out of the way, stop with the sad story sympathy with Danny already. It is so old and pathetic to mention at this time in the game. Danny deserves to be in the top 3 even though his last performance was his worst. So rock is not his forte. His sexy voice and whole package is going to take him far without the sad story and if you believe otherwise you are a moron.

    Adam and Alison performance rocked which is no surprise. I hope they do do a duet album together. They are magical together.

    Another comment. I believe and agree after reading several other comments that the young 13 -15 year olds are voting for Kris and Danny. Unfortunately, not for talent and that is why it is an unfair voting system. Kris is nice but not moving or inspirational in his singing and Danny plays on whatever but not a singer career. Either one should have been let go last night. Allison has a good voice and should have been the one to stay. But as long as you have these teeny-boppers voting for cuteness, etc. – this is a diaster and injustice waiting to happen. So very sad.

    I think it is funny that people call Idol 'rigged' or 'predictable'. I don't believe it is either. Just because the person YOU pick goes home, you think something is up, funny!
    I don't think the votes matter in the end. I think record sales and pure talent come through in the end anyway. Daughtry is a prime example. Taylor who? McPhee who?
    The popular vote on Idol doesn't necessarily mean a thing. It is fun to watch though! Lighten up people and enjoy the show!

I so hope Danny or Kris wins this title, but fear it will be Adam, a drastic mistake if so. I thought Allison was cute and sassy, loved her voice, she just didn't pick the right songs most of the time. She's young and has time to perfect her singing career.

    Probably Kris Allen if all the teen girls vote 50x each- or the religious lobby could pull it out for Gokey. It was all over Simon's face- Allison deserved to stay but pop American culture wants an all-American boy.

    I would have sent Chris home before Allison, but in the end it was a coin flip. America got it right.

    Not sure why some think Danny can't sing. In the Duet with Chris he was easily a better singer. BTW...Raw singing ability is only one piece to the equation that makes a star. There are many examples of very successful singers that did not have exceptional pipes....Phil Collins of Genisis comes to mind. Ultimately there are many factors that come into play...I think Danny will sell a lot of records.

    Adam...Interesting character. I can't quite figure out what kind of record this guy would make. Not sure if he will be a rock star, Broadway star, or forget me not. Time will tell.

He doesnt get up there acting like his crap doesnt stink and that hes better than everyone else. Adam is a good singer, but enough with the screaming.

    I liked her, but I didn't love her. She should write some music and come out with something she likes - otherwise she'll get used up by the industry and be a hasbeen before the age to drink.

    Bo Bice was good, but you see he didn't catch fire. Taylor Hicks as ok and, well, you know.

    Only a select few ever have the success of Kelly or Carrie. Daughtry is a rare occurrence - lost big on Idol and won majorly with the public.

    A lot of ex-Idols get an album. Name some hits off of those albums - I can't.

    I think Adam could create something special, but I don't know if he will. If he goes the contemporary route like Clay, he will do fine, but nothing stellar.

    If he sits down with talented writers and musicians and creates something special (yes, a throwback to 80's Glam Rock and 70's Rock), he could have a historic album. It only takes one album to solidy a lengend.

    I'd rather have one legendary albums from Adam or Axel Rose, than a string of mediocrity.

    How sad that Allison was sent home, what a scam? The problem with American Idol besides prejudice against age is the fan base and how they can vote. The fan base is a mostly TeenyBopper females with 20 toasters in their hope chest. Cute guys are all they live for, Kriss "smiley" should have been the one to leave and Danny should be next. This would leave Adam and Allison but still Allison has no chance when you have these dreamers voting hundreds of times in the two hours they have to do so for the cutest guy. There should be a limit per phone number. Alison as far as I care is the winner or runner up and will go further than Danny or kriss in this career, wait and see!

    Wow... some are saying that Allison's votes will go to Adam – I don't think that will happen. Adam is not a rocker. He is theater rock or Broadway. I can't imagine that shriek on the radio or an entire CD. Adam is no more than a flashy Taylor Hicks. One album that sells, then the teeny-boppers will grow out of him. Allison, on the other hand will only continue to build fanbase. At 17, bilingual – she will likely sell as many albums as Carrie and Kelly in just a few short years.

    Simon really screwed Allison this year – I don't get why he never really supported her. He is usually "spot-on". I think he missed it concerning Allison.

    Also – her farewell performance last night was one of the top three on Idol ever. Fantasia (Summertime), McPhee (Rainbow) and Allison last night. If she could've mustered that same emotion in competition – things would be totally different. I will never buy an Adam song – I'll definitely buy Allison's CDs. As pitch-perfect as she is, she could probably record an album before the Idols tour, but the contract probably won't let her till afterward.

Her performance was pathetic and like I said before cigar smoker vocals won't cut it again. I think she tried to match up to Kelly Clarkson. She should go home and act like a 17 year old and be thankful she was given this opportunity. Good luck to the trio remaining – of course wishing Adam to be the winner!

    All four final contestants are great! Each have a style of their own, and there are voters out there who are fans for more than hard rock...which is what Adam and Allison do the best. I believe Allison is gone because most of the voters are young female fans and they like the guys most! My favorite is Danny (and not because of the last "scream" ha) but because I am not a rocker fan and would buy more of his style recordings. Of the three, Adam and Danny stand out more.

    Good luck Adam you are our only hope and Danny Im not saying you cant sing but there is singing great and there are hand full of artists on the planet that are way past singing great .

    Joplin hit SF in 1963 when she was 20, but didn't get big recognition until 1966 at age 23. Allison is huge at 17! She's got beautiful inflection, emotion, phrasing, and power. She's way way ahead of Kris and Danny and on par with Adam. The recording industry would have to be nuts not to go right after her with a contract and a bunch of great songs. A star has been born!

    I think America got it completely wrong. Allison has been consistent in her performances all season long. Tuesday night she may not have picked the best Joplin song( according to the judges), but she performed great. Her duet with Adam was fantastic. Danny really had a bad singing night even joking about it himself. Contestants should be judged on their performance that night. After all this is a singing competition – not a popularity contest. Clearly Danny had the worst performance that night, and should have been voted off. I was so looking forward to more perfomances from Allison and another duet number with Adam, but now that won't happen. I'm so disappointed, I don't think I'm going to watch the show at all next week. Maybe not the finale either.

    Hahahahahahah! Now some of you know how it feels to have your favorite leave the show. I didn't see the performances but everyone knows Adam and Allison should have done great during rock week because that's their genre. American Idol set all of this up so rock week would be later in the season because they knew Adam and Allison would do great and voters would vote for them. Then they would definitely be in the final 3, but it didn't work out that way. To be honest I thought Allison was much better than Kris or Danny but the question for me has always been if she was ready for everything that comes with being an artist. Yes she can sing but there is a lot of stress that comes with it and I don't think she is ready, YET! Good luck on the remaining 3!!

    Gokey all the way! He's at least got personality. Adam is a piece of plastic with the same lifeless antics week after week with a voice range that he often pulls out that resembles that of a goat screaming. Should have been voted off after his 'Ring of Fire' debacle. Comparing this guy to Aerosmith and Mick Jagger is disgraceful to Legend of the music biz.

    OK, well the only reason i was watching AI was for Allison. And I agree she rocked last night, ever better than Tuesday.

    Allison, I've been a fan of yours all season. Hold you head up high, you did a great job. All of your fans will support you and you'll have a great career, just stay true to yourself. We will miss you!!!!

    I must admit that I was sad to see Allison go home last night, and was a bit surprised that it wasn't Kris. However, over the course of this season, I think that Kris has performed better than Allison. I have actually had a few "wow" moments when watching Kris (e.g., disco week and the revamping of the Donna Summer song) ... I've never had that "wow" feeling with Allison, although she is very good and definitely deserves a record deal. I don't think Allison had enough confidence in herself and, unfortunately, it showed. Also, she did not gain a large fan base like Adam, Danny and Kris have (the female contestants rarely do). Also, I have liked Danny from day one and I think he is very good, too, but I do not think he should be in the top 3. His vocals have not impressed me for many weeks now, especially this past week with "Dream On." Danny always sounds the same to me ... no versatility in his singing style and no "wow" factor for me. Overall, Adam deserves to be the next American Idol, and I voted for him this week. Why? Three reasons: (1) Adam can sing anything (literally), and he has demonstrated this by taking on a variety of song styles during this season (from slow ballads to rock); (2) Adam has shown that he can be a true artist by rearranging songs to suit his liking/style, and doing so successfully (much like David Cook did last year); and (3) Adam can definitely perform and entertain an audience. Whether or not Adam wins the title (which I hope he does), he will definitely have a successful career.

    It's amazing that most of these comments are in favor of Allison but she still got the boot? It makes me wonder what the rest of America must have thought. Are we the silent majority? Did we not vote and then complain about the outcome? I doubt it! Something is desperately wrong here. I don't get it. Help me out here, please!

    Sorry to hear Allison went home. I did watch it last night. I think she will
    no doubt do sort of the same that the service Advisor turned rock star did named Daugherty.

    She will WOW us in the coming months ahead. At least I do hope and believe she really can sing. She seems to really have that shine necessary to carry on with her career. It was really nice to see at she cool guest appearance this year. Sometimes the folks leaving early make it bigger/longer than the people who win. Sure even I can get pessimistic

    So it's not like winners do not have that extra door to success, Even though they are there to win the crown there is life after life.
    The fact that they even got this far is unique in of it's self. I think Adam is the best or close to the best I have ever seen on Idol. Now of course his being in the bottom 3 once or twice is something. He proved he has the talent to the extent of some already well know music stars.
    I am not totally sure. I think he may have to lean on something slightly modern and exiting at the same time to make the crown winner. Now of course if he becomes in the top two soon then he will have to carefully think about this. That WOW factor is what is needed to win over the hearts & minds of not only the judges but also the fine folks voting. Maybe the suite & tie thing followed by a song that leaves the folks breathless will be the binding tide.

    Although I'm a little surprised....I think it was just a matter of time. Allison was not going to win the competition. I thought it should have been Kris going home. Once I saw Kris being safe though, I knew something was going to happen. I like Danny and all but everyone deserves a mulligan and to me, this was his first bad night in a long time. I still think it will be Danny and Adam in the finals. We;ll see though. This is not the end for Allison...I love Chris Daughtry and look what he did after he finished in 5th place. I just hope she doesn't go too popish on us.

    I loved Chris Daughtry's performance but I just wished they would have had a bit more rockin of a tune for their first single. I guess you have to do something radio friendly first to get everyone to listen. I was nice to see Paula up on stage again but she was clearly lip syncing the song. No big surprise as Britney Spears and others that dance and sing do it all the time. No Doubt was ok but been there done that. Just A Girl is so old of a song I was like...Oh, ok. Anyways, we'll see what next week brings.

    It's the votes from "middle america" you have to worry about. Don't know what makes them "tick", which worries me about Adam. He's in a class all by himself, but you don't know how they're going to vote. If you left it up to the coasts (LA, NY), he's way ahead.

    Allison definitely should have gone home and long ago. All of her performances reached screaming pitch level in an effort to hit the higher notes. Yes, she can sing... but no, she shouldnt win.

    So it will come down to Adam and Danny. Kris goes home next week.
    Adam will win. I would LOVE to hear him just sing a song... without the special high note effects. He is an incredible singer and performer and he is visually appealing to males and females alike.

    Kris' career is over before it begins. He doesn't have any diversity nor natural musical instincts. Allison will be successful in the same vein as Kelly Clarkson and Pink and should do well domestically as well as globally. If she's this great at 17, just wait until her voice fully matures.

    Adam will be huge domestically and globally, as well. My prediction for Danny is he'll have a successful first album in the U.S. ONLY and then he'll fade away into the sunset performing for the fans of the bible belt.

    It's too bad Allison had to leave and we have to endure Kris one more week, but that's how the tweens voted and that's how the MP3 player crumbles.

BUT I am sure we have not heard the last of her...remember folks she just turned 17...and already can sing like a true rocker chick. I too am an oldster who would listen to her records...59!!

    Also would like to give Adam some praise. I don't care about any of the whispering about him...doesn't matter one way or the other...that boy can sing. My favorite group from my youth was Led Zeppelin and I loved his version of Whole Lotta Love. Go Adam!

    Kris does it all. He writes his own songs, composes and arranges them. Then, he also sings well. His vocal coach doesn't help him much because Kris already knows how to do most everything.

    That is why Smoky Robinson and Jaime Foxx told him his career is made, from this point forward. That is why Foxx wants to work with him on an album.

    None of the others do all that. Adam needs plenty of help. So does Danny and Allison.

    Kris picks and writes songs with a moral message. He is not a rocker, but he rocks all the same. GO KRIS!

In many ways if they are going to make a career in the business, I am not sure that leaving about now is a good thing. She can start right away making HER music, like Daughtry. I wish her the best.

    As for the rest of the finalist. I am a Kris fan. Yes all in all Adam is by far the most talented and versatile, I just dont care for him. I enjoy the sound and style of Kris. Danny is a remake of Michael Bolton and really do we need two of them?

    Ever notice how well the ousted contestant sings when they are relaxed and have the 2nd chance to do the song? (with some exceptions) Allison rocked her last number (I'm 54). There has been so much catering to and grooming of Adam (who already has plenty of performance experience) that the others are getting left behind. I anticipate more of this with the "Judges' choice" next week. I enjoy watching Adam sometimes, but his are not the songs I would want to listen to on the radio. Allison is much more likely to be this season's Daughtrey.

    Funny how Danny likes to blame his poor performance on being out of his element. Everyone has been out their element at least once on the show. Adam isn't a big band or country singer but he still rocked it, and that's what makes him an unbelievable artist. I can't stand to watch another week of Danny. He is average at best. Average voice, average looks, and absolutely no charisma. Just because he has a sad story doesn't mean he should win, alot of people have a sad story.

    Here's the deal – I have read the blogs, and there's a ton of negativity about the final three contestants on "Idol." People have their case against Adam. Kris. And Danny – which I don't get. Kris is not in the same vocal league with Danny. Adam is somewhere...I don't know – out there. Danny Gokey is the whole nine. Not only is his voice immeasurably pleasing with the biggest capacity to tackle anything – and he doesn't have to scream. The other night, I know that he felt pressured to stretch – the judges did a number on him last week to get past his comfort zone. But he has been consistent every single week. I have thrilled to his every note. And I am one of a legion of fans who absolutely – if you will – idolize Danny Gokey.

    It's not just because his story is so amazing. We all know about his late wife, Sophia. We note his wedding ring week after week.

    It's more. Here's a guy who has personality. He is a pleasure to hear when he speaks. His smile could melt Russian winters. He's warm. Kind. The way he looked at Allison last night when it was determined that she would be going home and not him. His first concern was HER. And, truth be told, it's the real love of God shining through him. He doesn't fake it. He's just a reflection of some sort of anointing.

    I really believe that Danny will be an actor of major proportions if someone mentors him. I envision him as a sort of Frank Sinatra meets Sammy Davis Jr. persona. He's got charisma, soul, chops, strength of character, and people who truly – I mean TRULY – love him.

    I am one.

    A believer. And absolutely no one would make a better "American Idol" than Danny Gokey. No one could send a better message to the world than this sweet "every man" from Wisconsin.

    Besides, he's got an angel watching over him. 🙂

Hard to believe that a person in my 60s that I would be so bummed out to see Allison voted off before Kris. Kris has his own style, is a good singer to a degree, but no way can compare to the vocals of the others. I am now hopeing that the final two will come down to Adam and Danny, and they are both deserving to become number one. Believe it or not, I am leaning towards Adam.

    Allison's departure is clear proof that American Idol is NOT a singing contest. Allison was clearly the strongest all-around singer this season, she had perfect pitch and performed strongly no matter what genre of music she faced. Can't say the same for Adam – some of the genre's (i.e. Country) were a total FAIL for Adam, his screechy voice will not propel him into a successful music career. Danny and Kris have supposedly been carried through by a bunch of Christian zealots who continually vote for those two, even though both fail at singing/performing.

    Sad to see Allison go, too bad the judges wasted their save on Matt. Allison should've had the chance to go back to her hometown still in the competition.

    Although Danny should have gone, not that unhappy. Kris is extremely talented although he didnt have his best night on Tuesday and Gokey sabotoged the duet.. Next week is pivotal for Kris but been saying all along, he's the dark horse.

    This is a singsing competition. I really hoped truly talented pelple
    with truly amazing vocals like Allison can stay on the stage...

    I saw the sadness from those 4 judge's eyes.

    now Allison, a genius who really can singing have to go so early.
    I thought I saw some American spirits last week when Allison first
    belonged to top 2

    America! Im disappointed that you voted off Allison. She was the best on the show. The first episode of Top 4 will be shown in the UK tonight and now I dont want to watch it 😦

    This season, I feel as if Simon Cowell has been favouring the male competition. Allison sings as good as Adam every week (if not better some weeks) and he gives her mediocre comments, unlike Adam Lambert. Its clear who Simon wants to win. None of the other judges really matter tbh.

    Disappointed. First Melinda DoLittle then Allison. America – you need to start picking some proper talent.

    I agree with fox. Each of the top 4 contestants had a really strong fan base– it's obvious, because I tried to vote for several of them after Tuesday's show and couldn't get through for any of them! It doesn't really matter who wins at this point; they're all probably going to make it in some way or another. Besides, whoever wins will just have to sign a contract with Idol, which might just end up restricting their creativity. If you think of it that way it's actually BETTER not to win so they can really be themselves.

    That being said, I was really surprised at the results last night. Wasn't expecting that outcome, but what can you do?

    it is very simple...not complicated – and all who want to scream the votes are manipulated need to step back and really look at the whole picture. NOTHING was manipulated at all.

    She is in the very same fan base as Adam. There are very few people who would vote for her – who wouldn't vote for Adam first. The week that Adam was in the bottom three was when her fans switched and voted for her instead – to keep her in the competition. It is a good thing they did. In doing so – they flip the polls to put Adam in the bottom three. Panic hit and even more votes went to Adam.

    I think that America is voting on looks and not talent, because Allison is a way better singer than Kris, and the way Danny hit that last note , I was sure he was gone! i mean it sounded like someone was being decapitated!! All in all i must say that America needs to judge this competition as a singing competition and not a fashion show or just basing it on looks , i mean ya gotta be honest Kris is attractive and so is Adam and Danny and Allison are the ugly ducklings per-say, people are torn between Adam and his lipstick and mascara and even though he is the best singer on the show he can still go home because of all the homophobic people in this world. I just hope that I'm right when i say that Adam will be in the top 2 with Danny, and Adam will take the crown....and as for tonight America got it so wrong! Danny or Kris should have gone home tonight what a shame!!

    After watching the so-called "rock" performances, I have to say that I think the only one to really get it right was the rocker chick Allison. I have yet to see Adam get anything right and I predict that just as in past years (yes no doubt he will win due to every fifteen year old girl in the work having a cell phone and nothing to time to text and text again) Adam will go the way of Reuben and Taylor and Fantasia and Beat box boy from a couple of years ago. However, I think that in three or four years you will be hearing from Danny and Allison because they have real talent. And we all know what happens to real, LASTING talent on Idol – they get voted off only to be found later by people with a real knowledge of music, unlike the panel of judges on the show. I think most people remember Clay and Jennifer and Kelly and Daughtry. It's a good thing Idol didn't have the last work when it came to that kind of talent.

    If we are starting to call Adam's music rock then rock is dead. He sings rock like High School Musical. He is a great singer. The best in the competition, but I remember one year there was an audition where a guy came in claiming he was rock and after he sang his song (which all the judges liked) they asked him to sing A whole new world from Aladdin, and he knew all the words. I bet any money Adam not only knows the words but all the dance moves from the musical too.

    A lot of people had been trying to put down Adam because he "screams" and hits the high notes almost as a show off. As a singer myself, I can attest that what Adam does with his voice as he hits those incredibly high notes is nothing short of amazing. There are very few male singers in this world who are gifted with that talent, and as proven by Danny's faltered scream in the end of his song it is extremely difficult to achieve that. Yes, Adam kinda flaunts that special skill, but truly that is what separates him from the rest of them. Danny is a great vocal stylist, I think. He's got more melisma in his voice than Adam, but his range is just above average. Adam has a pure tone and quality to his voice and he maintains it even as he soars to the next octave/s. Kris is a mediocre singer compared to Adam and Danny. There is really nothing special or extraordinary about his voice and I am totally astounded that he reached this far – most likely a benefit from the "cute" factor that appeals to all those lovestruck teenage girls. Allison has a maturity beyond her years and should have be in the top three. Kris, nice and wholesome as he is, is nowhere near the calibre of a top three, let alone a top twelve. This is why I do not watch AI anymore and just catch up with it at You Tube. Saves me the grief but sustains the guilty pleasure.

    Gokey is someone who has no stage presence, no voice, not someone I would ever pay to see or ever buy a song he recorded.

    Allison is a lights-out star. She and Adam have clearly been the best all along. She was robbed. But she will be at the top long after Gokey is back selling tires somewhere.

    At least the losers of the world got to keep one of their own alive, as they often do in this show. Gokey gets my Scott Savol award this year. What a disgrace.

    We were REALLY bummed to see Allison leave!!

    No offense to Kris' fans, and I do like the guy–but IMO, he should have been the one sent home tonight.
    Between the two of them, I really thought Allison was much better last night.

    I do agree though that at this point in the competition, it was anyone's game..I was just surprised at how it ended up.

    Honestly, though my fave is Danny, I thought all night that he was the one that was going home.
    I was totally bummed about it, but had some time to let it sink in a little before actually watching the show.
    But when they said Allison was the one leaving, I was shocked..and so it's hard, because I was both happy and sad at the same time.

    I was already figuring that if Danny left tonight, it was going to be Kris leaving next week, and then it would have been between Allison and Adam in the end.
    So though I'm happy, and know it may still turn out the way I had first expected (which is Danny and Adam in the final two) I really hoped (and believed) that Allison would have made the final three.

    But, it's also my thought that Allison is not going to be hurting for too long..I can really see her having made her mark and STILL selling records in the near future.
    I just keep telling myself she's still plenty young enough to have a great future, even if winning AI wasn't it.

    So, to summarize: happy that Danny stayed..but really sorry that Allison left..and I really wish her the best..because she deserves it!

    Just a thought; if Allison had performed to the audience last night as she did tonight I don't think she'd be the one leaving. Have you ever heard of 'automatic voting machines'? I wonder if American Idol can use them or have someone use them to vote for the one(s) they want? They can well afford to. No; surely they would not stoop to that. I hated to see Allison leave but at least AI doesn't 'own' her body & soul for the next year nor will they be controling her every move. I can see what Idol has done to David Archuleta & he wasn't even the winner. Allison still has another year of highschool to complete. I'm thinking the contestants should maybe finish highschool or 12 grade equivalent before being eligible to audition for AI. What do you think?

The only reason he is in the competition is because either there are millions of George Michael fans out there who see the similarities or he's getting the pitty vote because his wife died.

    By the end of the evening you should count how many responses thought Chris was going. I am 60 also and feel that Allison had one more night in her. I have bet the last two would be Adam and Danny with Adam declaring victory with no real surprise... I would bet on seeing the 10 year old girls screaming in the front of the audience that it would be a guy night and Allison would not have the backing needed. I feel she is one of the most mature 17 year olds I've ever seen and a voice that rivals most of the past women Idol winners. I think she will continue and be a hit in a cross market of Latino/Anglo albums.

    I saw it coming with the vote count - 64 million vs. 35 million on the other weeks and equal to past finales. With texting basically free, the viral youth fan communities issue hundreds or thousands of votes per person while older fans vote once or maybe twice. In two hours a single person could issue 3600 texts or more I suppose. Kris and Danny have pretty entrenched fanbases and in a vote based contest where there is no one-person-one-vote regulation the bases can determine the winner. But the irony presented by Daughtery's performace tonight and Jennifer Hudson a few weeks back is that to lose is to win, and perhaps much more than taking first place. Allison is a marketer/record company dream - a "girl next door" who can sing powerfully and emotionally - could be the next Avril Lavigne - a rocker chick who sings great music. If she keeps the edgey purity she exudes moms will love her too which means it will be ok for the kids to buy music and go to her concerts. Plus she's a classy 16 year old to a generation of girls. I'm sad to see her go, but I do expect we'll see her again soon, if only to sing with Adam which would be a delight in of itself.

    Adam is by far the most extraordinary talent, vocally I've seen on that show and he has star quality, Mostly because of him I've watched every week to see what he'll do and I watch him twice. But I love Allison. Her singing gives me goosebumps. She's original, her voice is amazing and always on the mark. She's impossibly talented for such a young girl and I hope to hear a lot more from her. I always felt she reminded me of Janis Joplin and I do think she outperformed Danny and Kris this week by a mile. American Idol just got less interesting to watch without Allison.

    Allison will turn out just fine and get a record deal, and Gokey and Kris will have their 15 minutes of fame before returning to their mundane lives.

    So, Allison was eliminated on rock week. What a surprise from a show where the likes of Bob Dylan and Neil Young would have been the "jokes" in the audition rounds that Simon Cowell would have made some sarcastic, dismissive remarks about. Get rid of the judges! They are all idiots! BTW Kara, "Dream On" was an early Aerosmith song and "Crying" came later. not the other way around. And Simon not realizing that Allison meant Jefferson Airplane's "Somebody to Love" rather than the Queen song just demonstrates that he should go back to being a movie production assistant. Mark Burnett, you evil genius, find some way to bring back Rock Star!

    Based on the studio versions of the songs , the best would be Adam and then Kris. As much as we loved Allison , we have a bit of difficulty understanding the words of her songs thus we have not downloaded any of her songs. The timbre of her voice is very good but on a personal level , for the song to have meaning , we needed to understand it .

    We are sorry that we did not find any of Danny's songs interesting and exceptional enough to download.

    For us the finals should go to Adam and Kris. Being the best of friends – they are both winners already when they both step into the Nokia stage.

    When that happens – it will probably be the most entertaining AI finale of all time. I am so looking forward to enjoying the finale with Adam and Kris. Hope this happens.

    And the winner – I and my family will feel like the winner as we will be throughly entertained and excited to view this.

    Allison should not have been voted off tonight. She has SO much talent and is way more mainstream than the Broadway-esque Adam. I can take him in small doses - until he starts in with those god-awful high notes. As much as I don't care for him, I have to admit that the duet he did last night with Allison was excellent. I will definitely buy Allison's CD when it comes out.... but Adam's? You couldn't pay me enough!

    I loved Allison and when Simon says he can't remember what anyone sang but Adam, he is forgetting on purpose that her "Papa Was a Rolling Stone" was one of the highlights of the season.

    Allison was always in a difficult spot. She's still too young for the rocker voice she has, so there was a discomfort with some of the smokey I've-been-hangin'-at-bars kind of songs. But if she had waitied a few years to audition, she probably WOULD have been singing in bars and would have lost her charm. I hope this early exposure allows her to leapfrog over the bar scene and get some really good professional coaching. Hope to see her around.

    The judges unfairly threw Allison under the bus more than once. Danny should have been the one to go home, and not only for his horrific performance last night. Regardless, the judges will eat crow if they're stuck with Danny – whom they continue to overpraise and pimp – as he won't sell records and will be a nightmare to manage. He's conceited, arrogant, smug, unoriginal, can't stay on pitch, forgets lyrics, has no personality, and won't sell tickets for long based on sympathy votes. Vote this guy off!

    I voted about 50 times (texting) for Allison, but I was afraid that as talented as she is, that she didn't have the fan base the goodlooking guys have. Lets face it, how does Allison's awesome voice overcome the teenybopper girls voting for Chris' adorable smile and good looks? And Danny has a solid fan base of young ladies too. And Adam is just an awesome singer. So although I would have preferred Chris or Danny to go home, it played out just the way I feared it would.

    I expect Allison will have an amazing career. She has a fabulous voice. I just hope whoever she hires to be her agent gives her clothing advice.

    Allison is the only one who will have a successful radio recording career. Adam will be on broadway. Danny will be a bust. Kris will have moderate success with the teen crowd. The judges never gave her the credit she deserved. NEVER. Danny NEVER rearranged a song, he comes across as smug. Allison is sweet, shy and 17. She rearranged some of the songs and had the best voice of the group (unless you are a glambert). Simon will wish he had not been so critical when she is the next Daughtry with a multi platinum album. I hope she rubs it in his face!!! Go Kris. You have my votes now!

    I really wasn't surprise about Allison – it could have gone any way. Loved the song she chose, but she fell a bit short for me on the emotional side – you sing Janis, you have to have the heart behind it. Allison sung it well, but it missed the emotional mark.

    Adam knocked it out of the park – I had goosebumps up to my ears!!

    Chris did ok, and Danny pretty much looked petrified and out of his element the whole night.

    The only shocker in my world would have been if Adam had been sent packing then, and only then, would American have gotten it wrong.

    America, they all can sing and sing well. At this point any of the four could have been idol winners of the past. They are all that good.
    I look back at idols of the past Archeleta, and who was the girl that beat Chris Dautry. None of them are as good as what is on stage now. We've seen many idols of the past, 2nd, 3rd place, etc. and only a very few have gone on and done anything. That is proof enough to show that this is a tough business and just having a good voice isn't enough. It takes alot of luck, determination and help.
    I think Matt with the confidence that Adam has could have ran away
    with this thing. I hate to see anyone leave at this point, they are all that good, but only one can win.

    Females not only vote, but the majority of them are likely 13 year old females. Hence, Danny and Kris keep getting voted on. As a former musician, I will say that those who support Danny and Kris.......they are OK, but I can hear the same voices in the local Holiday Inn Lounge. They would be very good lounge singers, but they are lounge singers. Neither belong in the final two of American Idol. From the week I heard Adam sing Michael Jackson (and I am NOT a MJ fan), it appeared to me that he was easily the one to beat. But he rocked that song.....even better than MJ did.

    Music today is boring. Adam and Allison are edgy and talented and both will go far. Look at Chris Daughtry. I hope Allison will take inspiration from him. Kris or Danny will probably win, because of the teeny-bopper girl vote, but both will likely disappear within 5 years (btw, just where are Jasmine and Sanjia today?).

    It amuses me to read these blogs. A whole lot of folks here obviously have no musical background, no musical ear, nor do they have any concept of what it takes to "make it" in the musical industry, Adam and Allison have it. Danny and Kris don't. End of story.

You can't sing, and your performance last night sucked. By the way, your last note wasn't your funniest moment on Idol, it was your worst. It proved you are way out of your league.

    Kris definitely had a rough night. I wonder, though, why he didn't do a Beatles song more suited to him. Rock doesn't HAVE to be loud. The Beatles proved that.

    Adam is definitely in a league of his own. (Sorry Kara, he's no rock god yet, but has the potential.)

    Sad that Allison got sent packing. Based on last night's performances, it most certainly should have been Danny Gokey, whose cover of "Dream On" wouldn't have cut it in a karaoke bar in Tuscaloosa. No matter – Allison will do just fine – she has a great career ahead of her. And there really is no other choice to win the season than Adam Lambert, who has been consistently in a league all his own, both vocally and as a showman/entertainer. From his brilliant "Tracks of My Tears" to his incredible "Whole Lotta Love" last night, this guy can sing ANYthing, make it his own, and knock it out of the park. He's a superstar in the making, and the one everybody is talking about – with good reason. A voice like that comes along maybe once in a generation.

    Allison was definitely robbed tonite. She has a good singing voice and it is a singing competition. That is the problem with American Idol. A lot of people, a lot of them minors, vote based on popularity. Not real talent. Adam has both. Allison has a great voice but does not have a large fan base. Kris has a large fan base but I think he's in trouble. He sings conservative songs like Archuleta did last year. The rocker (David Cook) beat him out at the end because he was simply a better singer. Adam should win this competition easily. He can sing anything and make it sound good. The other top 2 contestant will be determined based on the genre next week. Kris and Danny slipped by this week. I am definitely buying Allisons music. She will be more diverse than Kris and Danny.

Granted Kris' performances were nothing special last night, but listening to all of his previous performances shows that he deserves to be there and he *is* a contender. Adam is the most talented artist of them all, but I don't know if his style appeals to enough people to win him enough votes.

    American Idol isn't about who is best. It is who a select group of people who vote hundreds or thousands of times like best. Allison should still be in it because of her talent. Danny is essentially season 5's Taylor Hicks – not as good as the other contestants, but keeps getting voted through. In the long run who cares though? Allison will sell more and make more than Danny just like Daugherty has done with Hicks. At this point, American Idol is pretty much irrelvant because the person who actually wins it is not typically the person who ends up being the most successful.

    Kris should have gone home. 2nd choice would have been Danny.

    You can't blame the program though, blame the people voting or not voting.

    While AI is sometimes unpredictable, I do think that tonight marks the night that Adam becomes completely unstoppable. Personally, I believe he's had it from the first audition but the politics of it all get in the way sometimes. Now the tide has turned in his favor, I don't think Allison's votes are going to go to Kris or Danny. If Kris left tonight then I think Danny might have been unstoppable, all of Kris's votes would have went to him. We'll see, but it seems pretty certain at this point. By the way, I don't think Allison should have left tonight either.

    I am so sad! I thought Allison had a fantastic performance last night! Simon did say to Allison, "This is your time to beg." Did she beg? Nope, she wanted to give America personality instead, and now she is going home.

    Another Idol travesty. Unfortunately Allison didn't have a large enough fanbase to carry her to the top three. Adam is tremendously popular and deserves to be in the finale, but the other two guys, yikes, I just don't get it. I read on the Idol boards that Kris and Danny have a huge Christian following and that their networks had no problem in getting people to vote. Poor little Allison didn't have a chance against those two, and she was better than both of them.

    Allison's finale was her best effort yet, just link Lil's was. Why do they hold back until they are already out the door? Kris should be gone. It's like Jason Castro last year...can't believe he's still here.

    We have to remember who is voting and how much they vote. The 10 to 18 age bracket will vote with as many phones as possible for as many hours as possible. Allison and Adam are a hard sell to these folks. Danny and Kris are not. It doesn't have to do with their singing skills, it has to do with their looks, image, etc. Still sucks.

    Well, Allison is going to be a STAR! And Adam and her will do duets on each other's albums .. so cool! Kris needs to go .. he shouldn't have lasted this long. He doesn't have what it takes to be a crowd puller and a great performer. His concerts would be SOOOO boring. If Daughtry and Hudson are any proof, this show is just for ratings and people who are gonna make it big, are gonna make it big no matter what!!

    I am so sad to see Allison go, her duet with Adam last night was amazing. She should have a great career ahead of her. This is the first time that I have felt that the top 4, actually, the top 5, were totally deserving (Danny's scream notwithstanding, hey, we all make mistakes...) I did think Kris was headed home tonight, but I am glad to see his humble self still hanging in there. I wish there was a girl still in the running, but you go, boys! This is an AI season for the books!

    It's such a shame that this is turning out to be a popularity contest. Allison has a far better voice than Danny and she is more of an original artist as well. America didn't get it right this time; Danny should have gone home tonight.

    Allison is the real star, and I say the votes are suspect. I had not voted since the 1st season, but voted multiple times in a row for this talented rocker. She should have her record deal tomorrow! Love that hair too.

    How awfully off key do you have to be to stay??? Allison and Adam did a great job individually and a phenomenal duet. Kris and Danny were bad together and worse apart. They simply did not have the chops to rise to the occasion.

    This is when you wonder what is rigged and what is not because clearly, Kris and Danny are not in the same league as Adam. They did not perform close to Allison's ability last night. Whether it is stylists causing the visual difference, Kris and Danny are fading into Adam's shadow.
