Top 4: Kris Allen 'Comes Together'

How Kris was able to not lose it when he played with Slash (and on his guitar no less), I will never know.

Kris Allen

I thought Kris' version of The Beatles "Come Together" was a little funky. I think he should get some quality points for even attempting to tackle such a legendary tune, especially at this point in the competition when the singers are so closely matched in talent.

They flash to Slash, and he doesn't look thrilled and the judges, for the most part, aren't either.

Kris tries to smile it off, but he looks a little worried.

    Kris did an awesome job of "Come Together". Imagine being able to take a slow, jam-worthy Beatles song like that and make it totally rock n roll? I mean, come on. Normally I would be the first person to say don't mess with the arrangements of a classic song, but this is about, as Kara DioGuardi would say, "artistry", and Kris was by far the most original of the bunch. Sure, it wasn't his strong suit, but his attempt was more of a valiant effort than Danny's horrible rendition of "Dream On". Kris doesn't deserve to go home tonight because he was better than Danny, and he put more of an effort into arranging the song than any of the other contestants. He is the most record-ready of the four finalists and the most down-to-earth. Even if he leaves the show, he is sure to have a solid following and a record deal.

    Hope Danny is history and not Kris. Danny acted like he was so much better than Kris. What a jerk. It's time for you Danny to go home and sing in the church choir.

    I just enjoy Kris 100x more than anyone on that stage. He doesn't need flashy clothes or loud music. Him and a guitar would own the stage.....and that is someone who should win this competition. When there's no electricity and there's only candles....who can sing with a couple of acoustic strings and a powerful heart?

    Oh come on people...grow up. Kris Allen should have been gone weeks ago. I don't even know how he got THIS far. They passed up so many other better talents...and for this?! I'm stunned.

    He always sings those safe, bland, vanilla ice cream songs. The fact that he keeps doing well enough to pass ought to prove that if he got a CD it would be good enough to pass, but not many people would buy it. He's a waste of marketing dollars. And btw, he's not some phenom in the looks department like they're making him out to be. Boys like him are a dime a dozen where I'm from.

    I love how everyone keeps talking about how they "would totally buy a Kris album" or about how "Adam has a career that's going to be equal to the Beatles" (I saw it on the EW blogs).

    Everyone forgets that we've had some insanely talented people on this show. Yet only two people have made legitimate careers out of it.
    Remember last year when people thought David Archuleta was the second coming?
    Regardless of how good someone on this show is, they won't last. Because come next January, there's gonna be a new batch of competitors, and at least one of them is gonna have America oogling over them for a few months.
    Adam, Kris, Allison, Danny, doesn't matter who wins. Because by that time, nobody will care.

    (I'm not gonna deny that I get wrapped up in the show myself. But I always remind myself of this.)

    Kris was lackluster and boring as always. I'll never understand how he made it this far. Everything about him is forgettable. His vocals seem forced, especially the higher notes. When he tries to hit certain notes, his facial expressions look like he is making a bowel movement. Wake up people.

    Kris deserves to stay over Danny. Danny is overrated by the judges, I have no idea why. Kris has more originality and musical sense than Danny, and a lot more humble too. I hope that Kris gets to stay another week to show more of his talent. The judges were too harsh on him! He looked so sad at the end too.

    OK, Kris might go home tonight. He should NOT have chosen a Beatles song, true. But he is REALLY GOOD! I guess he needs more time to polish his performance skills, which he will now do as top five; but every time he sings, I feel a connection to how genuinely good his voice is and how much talent he has as a singer.

    Sorry, Kris's fans, but once again, last night, this guy proved that he wasn't good enough to be the winner! He's good but not as good as Adam Lambert. Kris should just go home with his wife, make babies, and sing at his church. I can see he could open for some poor boy band's concert in the future, something like the Backstreet Boys or NKOTB (gross!)... Anyway, I like Kris but he needs to go home. Please stop voting for Kris!...

    I love Adam and I truly believe he should win. Having said that I also feel that Chris is a very talented singer. He just doesn't stand out but someone needs to grab hold of him because he has the potential to produce a hit. His voice is always on tune and he does not have to scream but just comes across nice to the ears.

    Whut says, "Nobody is going to beat Adam, but Kris and/or Allison in the final against Adam scares the bejezus out of Idol. " Hello? This makes no sense at all. If no one is going to beat Adam, then why would AI care who is up against Adam? Hello? (Further, I've watched every year, and I've been in AI forums since year 2, and I will never understand this kind of comment, that conspiracy theorists make year afte year, that AI would be scared by who does or doesn't win. They're going to make oodles of bucks regardless.)

    Anyway, I like Kris well enough, but it was a bad song choice. The tone, the lyric, the rhythms–they don't fit him. Rock is a wide, wide territory, folks. Saying it isn't his genre, when the stuff has been around for fifty years, with thousands of songs to choose from, just doesn't cut any ice (for lunch or otherwise).

    Rob: Before critiquing someone about their song choice, please check the spelling of one of the best bands in the history of music-the BeAtles. You are obviously so knowledgeable about them *eyeroll*. Thanks.

    Let me start off saying, I haven't watched AI in...when was Clarkson on? Yeah, long time. Kris Allen has got me watching again, and granted, I go for more of his chill, Mraz-y like sound, I think he's one of the best ones in the competition. Allison, while talented, reminds me too much of Pink, and Gokey is Adam is too over the top for my taste, but has amazing vocal ability, so it's not really a doubt he'll win. If Kris goes home, I think it's wrong as I think his performance was awesome and was pretty happy SOMEONE chose the Beatles, but as long as he eventually gets a record deal, I don't really care in the end...I just don't want him to go away. Go Kris! 🙂

    I feel like in the particular song, his voice lacked a certain depth that is required to pull it off.

    That being said, he totally nailed both the depth and notes on "Falling Slowly", which is one of my personal favorite songs.

    I LOVED Kris's version of this song. Thought he gave it a great rock feel that still felt like Kris. I've really started looking forward to his performances and this one was not a disappointment to me. He did seem just a tad bit "faded" when the camera would pan out– stage presence issue– but again, it fit his style.

    Kris is my favorite but we all knew this Rock theme would be the toughest theme for him. He did a very solid effort on both his solo and the duet. I am angry that they made Kris sing his solo right after singing his duet, he needed a bit of 'recovery' time (especially after Simon's horrible comment on Kris' duet performance).

    Kris looked very down tonight. I think he was just utterly exhausted, underprepared (no dress rehearsal) and over his head on Rock week. He looked really exasperated by Simon's mean comment after his duet. That's the closest I've come to seeing Kris look actually angry! Allison got fiesty with Simon tonight, too. I loved it. I hate how the judges compared the Adam/Allison duet with the Danny/Kris duet. How can you make a real comparison? Adam & Allison were in their best theme week, and Kris/Danny were in their worst theme week. They shouldn't have paired up the two rockers together. The duet pairs were not fair.

    Kris looked scared to death tonight and didn't display confidence. He sings okay and always has, but just enough to get by. I still feel that this is a voting competition. The young girls vote and they are keeping him in. Danny was awful tonight and the worst that I've ever heard him, totally wrong song choice, but I still think that he has a lot more talent than Chris. His range is so much better and is more talented than Chris. Chris should have been gone a long time ago. Allison and Adam are the most talented at this point and Danny is third. I do feel that the judges are totally unfair in their comments and always seem to knock down Allison and Chris, while they build up Adam and Danny. Their last comment that, "Adam might have saved Allison with the duet" really made me mad.

    As a product of the 60s, I liked Kris' take on Come Together, putting as much of his own spin into it. Fleshed out, I think it could have a great sound for today. To me, he is a natural, down-to-earth performer in the vein of John Mayer. And, for that, he probably will not win because there isn't any phony, razzle-dazzle flash there, just sincere talent and heart. He's finding his way, but I think he know what kind of artist he wants to be. His stage presence is more approachable and relatable, not some circus show. And, Danny, OMG!!! Awful. Kris deserves to go to the final three.

    Kris may not have been in his element tonight, but overall I would say his rendition wasn't bad...maybe not his best, but then this genre isn't his strong suit.

    Even if Kris goes home tomorrow night, he's still going to get a recording contract. He's a great musician, singer, and probably a great songwriter (if I had to guess). Remember a few seasons back when Daughtry got voted off in the fourth place? He was able to jump start his career before the tour got started...and hit the ground running in the fall with his album.

    Someone mentioned John Mayer's name...Kris sort of reminds me of him...great songwriter, singer and crafts a song very well. And, John Mayer is very bankable and appeals to a wide range of listeners. That's what Kris will accomplish...he'll be able to appeal to the pop/rock audiences as well as the adult contemporary. I hate to say it, but that is far more bankable than Adam's venture into heavy metal/hard rock. Sure, there's an audience for that, but Kris will easily find his audience. And, I wouldn't be surprised that he delves into a bit of contemporary Christian as well.

    The difference between Kris and Adam is like the difference between George Harrison and Mariah Carey... one is an instrumentalist, the other is not. One has a simpler, more sincere approach to singing and songwriting, while the other tries to fit as many notes into each syllable as possible. Obviously one is a stronger vocalist than the other, but one is also a more talented musician, will make better records, and will generally be more respected.

    And Adam's pants during his duet??? Enough said.

He's not out there like Adam, but he did a very good performance tonight, in his own way. Forget ice for lunch, Somebody should pour ice over Simon's head so he will wake up and realize that you don't have to be over the top to be talented.

    Kris (and/or Allison) could come out and blow the place up, walk on water, make angels cry and they would not be a break from the judges because they want a Adam/Danny final because they know it's a slam dunk win for Adam. Nobody is going to beat Adam, but Kris and/or Allison in the final against Adam scares the bejezus out of Idol. Danny could come out, whizz in Simon's vodka cup, crap in Paula's lap make out with Randy and it's going to be the greatest thing in the world.
    They should have just went straight to the Adam/Danny final after the first week.

    All those of you who are slamming Kris including the judges, Adam has gotten all the accolades this season. He has been shoved down our throats as the winner since day one. Nobody can out ing him or out scream him for that matter so when someone like Kris comes along, he is overshadowed by the theatricals of Adam. he is my favorite because when he is in his genre he is amazing. This season there is more emphasis on performing rather than singing which i thought was what American idol ws all about. Slash certinly wasn't supportive except to Adam of course.

    Why is screaming like a girl (even though you a guy) deemed as talent??? Rock doesn't mean you have to see who can burst the most eardrums to get the most blood out. While I think it is a very talented group tonight, I just will never understand the judges undying (and misplaced) love for Adam. Danny was just plain awful. His notes were all over the place except for the right ones, yet the judges again saved some love for it. Alison and Kris always get the short end of the stick when it comes to praise from the judges. I thought Kris did a phenomenal job on "Come Together" and even put his own signature on it, which is more than the others did. Alison did a great job, too.

    I thought he was slammed unfairly but they want him out at this point

    Carly Smithson was more interesting and funky and fresh with her version last season... Kris was in way over his head here.

    Actually it wasn't his best and he looks like he wants to cry and Simon is trying to ensure he is voted off

    Meh.....that is pretty much all i can say. I love Kris to death but I think we all knew this would be a tough one for him. He did what he could.

    I thought it was a good performance. That is one of my favorite Beatles songs. Kris did it justice. He's right in line behind Alison for me.

    Kris is really appearing to be the dark horse in this competition, he has always been just good enough to stay in and never done so poorly that you hear the judges make zingers about him. To be honest, up until the last couple weeks, he has always been really forgettable. But that has played so well for him and now he is just letting his true talent just rip everyone else apart and makes him stand out from the crowd.
    I am a huge Beatles fan and until David Cook – I was never impressed with covers and tonight was no different. And to do Come Together? He did not do the song justice at all. His voice is too high to give a song like this the justice it deserves and the melodious singing just wasn't right for this song.
    I am rather disappointed.
