Top 9: Kris Allen ends it on a high note

I hope some of the other piano men were taking notes.

Kris Allen

Kris took to the keys with his rendition of Bill Withers' "Ain't No Sunshine," and out of all of the songs tonight, his is the one that would have found a home on my iPod.

He said he was attempting to have a moment, and he did it. Loved the voice and the entire performance.

Kris has stepped up his game!

    Kris is not a pro or semi-pro like some of the other contestants. That is what I like about Kris. He also showed that besides being a singer he is a musician and arranges music.

    I really like Kris. I loved his studio version of Make You Feel My Love and this week's song, too.

    I haven't voted since Season 2, but he's tempting me.

    Kris should win. Terrific job on one of my all-time favorite songs.
    He deserves to win...he won't be a big star, but he'll do better than Taylor Hicks (BTW, has anyone seen him lately, I'm worried...maybe someone should put out a missing persons report).
    Kris is quietly and solidly original (unlike that awful circus act Adam) and he gets better every week. He can also play guitar and keyboards.
    The only downside are the funny monkey faces he makes when singing...he looks ridiculous.

    I agree that Chris is a dark horse. He is very Jason Mraz-ish. I adore Adam but frankly, I think it is unfair that he is even in this competition. Adam is in a different league altogether. Megan (ridiculous), Scott and Matt must go. Matt has a death wish, people. He needs to be dancing, singing soul and certainly not attempting to rock out.
    My advice to Chris is that he needs some clothes styling. Too bland. Whereas Alllison is over the top. But she is an old soul and amazingly talented. Cannot believe her instrument, at any age, let alone 16.

    I've been ragging on him for being boring. But he was excellent last night. Only one complaint:

    How can you perform that song with a string quartet and leave out the beautiful phrase the strings play during the chorus? I was waiting for it, but it never came...

    Oh well. Good for you Kris! Hope you leach some votes away from Adam 😛

    I don't think he'll win it all, but Kris has what it takes to make it to the top 3. He'll have to outperform Adam and Alison (and hope they mess up). But I doubt that will happen. Adam and Alison are clearly way above the rest. But even if Kris doesn't win, he'll get a contract somewhere and he'll be happy. Look what happened to Jennifer Hudson.

    Kris is my 3rd favorite in this compitition behind Adam and Matt. But his performance of Ain't No Sunshine blew Matt's performance away by miles!!! I see him improving every week and making people sit up and take notice of him. If I weren't so biased in my devotion to Adam, I might say Kris had the best performance of the night!

    The stupidest thing IDOL has done was to add the 4th judge-Kara Dioguardi. Really, she is clueless, knows nothing music. 9 out of 10 time she just repeats everyone that co me out of Randy's mouth. I hope she not brought back next season. Seems to me that she is nothing but a trouble maker, not to mention she knows nothing about music

    Adam and Danny are the most talented and versatile. You all like Kris b/c he is attractive. The reality is, if you were to re-watch the end of this performance, it was a COMPLETE stretch for him to hit the last note. He has NO range whatsoever. He is a BUMBLING IDIOT with an instrument. He is COMPLETELY average. The judges like him b/c he is marketable. This song was within his range. Quite frankly, take away the indulgent strings and keyboard, and you would switch the radio station. Lets see Kris take a bad song choice (like Lil Rounds did) and still wow you with his pipes. can't do it. He belongs in a starbucks singing elevator music while you're sipping a double-tall latte and don't care b/c you're so caffeinated.

    Kris stepped up his game and for me as a member of a family who all play keyboards – Bang on dude. It is awesome to see a young talent who plays more than one instrument. He also showed more vocal abilities in this performance. Before tonight I liked him but wasn't like "wow this guy's really great" but now he is up there in the top for me. He may not have Adam's flair for putting on a "crazy" show because he has a laid back style but his performances are becoming increasingly enjoyable and memorable and surprising! I like Matt,Danny,Allison and L'il but they have lost some of their wow factor after seeing Kris last night. Think about who has had consistently solid performances and who has gotten better not stayed the same or fallen short for their skills? Who doesn't have just great pipes or is just a good performer because of stage prescence or is different but who is a true artist? Who always delivers and improves and surprises? For me after last night still Adam and now Kris. Allison and l'il still have their pipes but those performances didn't do them justice at all. Megan, even though unique, she's had enough chances. Scott earned alittle more time but won't "catch – up" Anoop – disappointing last night. Matt – not picking the right songs to show his stuff. Danny was Danny still like him but was not "wowed."

    Kris is probably the most consistent performer but has failed to take it over the top which unfortunately will be his demise. He is by far my favorite in this competition. If it were just a singing competition he would definitely take home the prize.

    I think Kris has been delivering good sound performances for three weeks now. I put him in the top three–Adam, Kris and Danny (and then Allison). I predict it will come down to those three toward the end and that Kris's true rival is Adam, who he will have a hard time beating in the end. The spoiler could be Danny, who could step up his game, and maybe Kris could come out on top, if Adam implodes (but I doubt it).

    I thought Kris did a fantastic job tonight. I've thought he was a front runner from the beginning, but didn't know how much of a chance he would be given. Fortunately, the producers have allowed him the opportunity to display his talents lately. He seems like a normal guy – but he has all of the components necessary to make a future star – a) the looks; b) the talent (most importantly); c) the ability to play multiple instruments; d) the obvious fundamental understanding of music and how to write and arrange it; e) must I even go on. Most importantly, he appears to be "moldable" – something the record companies want – they can take him and make him into a machine that can sell records. Go Kris – you're my longshot bet for AI's top spot.

    I absolutely agree...He was original and awesome. I fell a little bit in love with him tonight. Adam Lambert is always good, but all that screeching and howling gets a bit old. I enjoy watching him, but I can't really imagine going out to get his CD. Based on this evening's performance, I would buy Chris Allen's CD in a heartbeat.

    Consider closing your eyes and just LISTENING to the singing. Kris leads the pack when you focus on the voice, interpretation, and artistry alone. And how do most of us receive our music?

    This was an awesome end – I am really starting to like this guy and I do agree with all of you that he could be the season dark horse and tkae this all the way – I would love him to make at least top 3

    This guy is definitely the dark horse of the show. I'd say he's in the top four (Adam, Allison, Danny...and Kris). He really surprised me with playing the piano, and he's making great song choices, and adding a contemporary twist. Kris has the advantage of being able to play multiple instruments, and arranging the music to fit his abilities and talent. I thought Matt would be in fourth position, but Kris is passing him by. If he keeps going the way he has the past three weeks, Kris may have a lock on the top three. From there...who knows? Top two?

    Check out Eva Cassidy's rendition on "Ain't no Sunshine". Kris was good but hardly original.

    I thought he was great from the beginning too and not getting much attention for some reason. He shines more and more every week. Good luck Kris!

    If I closed my eyes and listened to the song would I be able to tell it was Kris singing? No.

    Good singer but yet bland.

    Yes Joe – that has to be a joke.

    Beautiful. If he released an album tomorrow I would buy it. I hope people realize his talent without all the show and swagger of some of the other contestants; he doesn't need it.

    Scott will win AI? Wow...so he does have a fan.

    Kris is good, but I don't think he is better than Matt, Danny, or Adam.

    He's really good. Solid performances. I think each week more and more people will notice him and he could be a front runner.

    Kris, as Kara would say, I have 4 words for you. YOU WERE THE BEST TONIGHT BY A MILE. Another $.99 for iTunes. You and Adam in the final 2.

    I"m bummed that Kris doesn't get more attention. He's given awesome performances each week and still no whoop whoop like there is for Adam. Keep rockin' Kris!

    Kris is the dark horse of this competition. He could easily come through and win it all! Watch out for him...
