Top 4: The one going home is ...

** 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. **

Allison Iraheta

The remaining three are center stage and the second person safe is ... Adam.

Well, duh!

We are down to the final two, Allison and Danny, and the person going home is ... the little rocker chick!!!

Awwwww, the last girl standing is no more. She sings "Cry Baby" again and cries a little.

Hold your head up high, Allison, because you left your mark on "AI!"

    Hold your head up high. your better than at least two that are left and also better than some that have already won in past years. You have a future in the business and I myself look forward to hearing more from you. I already have my tickets to see you in Columbus, OH!!!!

    If you are asked and accused of something you are not or never did and defend yourself by just smiling and changing the subject sure sounds as if what you are accused of is the truth.

    When Allison and Adam did Slow Ride that was the ultimate performance next to Adams' Whole Lotta Love. Really hoping they do some more.

    Allison could clearly outsing the Frog and the Choir guy.

    This leaves the door wide open for Adam.

    Once again, the best singer is not always kept on the show.....

    I think this will be my last season of being an Idol fan.

    The show is starting to fade, everything appears to be scripted , therefore the originality is fading fast.

    I will certainly by an "Allison" CD , the others except Adam won't even be around , they will fade like the wind......

    Yes, she should hold her head up high. She has a powerful and good voice and she will definitely go far. Hoping she does a duet with Adam, think they rock. If you looked at Danny's face especially and even Kris, they know it wasn't the right call. Young teeny boppers need to vote for talent not cuteness.

    I think they are all outstanding and frankly woul dhave been shocked no matter who was let go. America speaks. No one should be let go just because of one off night. Hence, Kris and Danny are still golden.
    It will be a cying shame if Adam doesn't win the whole thing though as he is clearly so far above anyone ever on the show. His talent absolutly astounds me and I'm an old lady!

    I think they got the final 4 right at least, and I could see any one of them winning. I am sad to see Allison leave. I really wish she would have sang some Pat Benatar or Joan Jett. That would have rocked!

    The only thing I don't like about the final 3 is Adam's screaching. Don't get me wrong, I think he is the best singer by far, and is completely amazing. However, the screeching... holy hell I want to cut my eardrums out of my head with rusty razorblades every time he gets to that point. Kudos to Danny for his imitation of Adam's screeching. I laughed my arse off!

    sad, very sad. I cried when she sang Cry Baby. Awesome! Is America tone deaf? Adam can hit high notes, he screeches at times. I am a hardcore Zep fan, even knocked at Plant's door in Birminghan a few years ago.. Hated Adam at some points of the song. He screeched mid way and then came back to what Slash had advised him to do.. Gokey was the worse of the night. Kris was uninspiring with Aerosmith's version of the Beatles song. Adam is all broadway, theatrics to me. Nothing against him, his version of Gary Jules version of Mad World was terrible. I give up.. Disappointing. Oh Simon, by the way, Adam was a bad copy of Zep, Allison did justice to Janis...To say that was not a copy of Zep, WHAT??? The band was awesome even though they did miss some important slides on guitar..

    Anyone who thinks that Danny or Chris has a better voice than Allison is just isimply gnorant when it comes to talent. Chris has more talent than Gokey and cllearly to the most casual observer, Allison is much better-not comparison-than either of these two guys. The chances that Allison will have a super recording career after Idol.are odds on. Chris will have some success but Danny? No way!. He will not be a record seller, he will not have a good recording careeer and his singing talent is very limited. Adam stands heads and shoulders above Chris and Danny, and I don't just mean his 6'2" frame to their limited stature. Adam is clearly the best talent that has ever been on Idol, bar none. Danny needs to make an exit and quickly and get back to leading his local church choir, where his talent is appropriately placed.

    I'll be the first in line to buy Allison's first CD ... just like I was to buy Leona's Lewis. Both these girls can sing. First CD I bought – my wife usually buys these things (El Divo etc) Although the three finalists can "sing" their sound isn't gonna get any money out'ta my pocket. My wife is so so on the boys. I like Adam (really wild) though I doubt I would buy his CD. Allison ... any time you're visiting Ottawa look us up and you'll have a place to stay (like you'll need it) eh!

    Allison was awesome, I would like to know the break down of how many votes each got. That little girl sang her heart out! Danny should have been gone. I keep hearing that you have to vote for how they have done in the past as well. This doesn't make sense to me because people are voting each week. You could see Allison grow as a performer each and every week. Adam will win I think they didn't want a showdown between two rocker's who had an awesome duet. It is sad very sad for Allison but she has a hell of a career ahead of her, can't wait unti her first album I'll be the first in line!

    If AI were truly just about the singing we would hear on the radio. Kris and Danny, regardless of how talented they are, seem like so many other contestants that have walked across that stage. Adam and Allison have appeal because they are not cookie cutter contestants and they put on a good show. So no matter how everyone tries to say this is a singing competition the fact is that what we see influences how we feel about the contestants.

    Would I pay to go see Danny or Kris in concert? Nope. Would I pay to see Adam or Allison? Absolutely. They are performers. Would I buy one of Adam's albums? Probably not but I would buy one of Allison's. And I would possibly buy one of Kris' or Danny's. So who should be the winner?

    As talented as Adam is, it is not a forgone conclusion that he has this season won. I wish that were the case, but sadly there are idiots in this country that will do everything they can to keep Adam from winning because he is not a clean cut, boring, no personality, conformist like Danny, even if he has more talent in one finger than Danny has in his entire body.

    All of the boo-hooing, teeth-gnashing, fingers-gnarling of the final outcome. No matter how many screaming people there are in the theater, the contestants are singing ONLY for 4 people. Allison's Tuesday night performance was not up to par; "Cry, Baby" seemed to be all chorus sung the same way. Her duet with Adam was better because she knows how good he is, and there were a couple of times where she 'tapped' him on the head to remind him she's there to win. her performance on Tuesday to how she sounded last night: it was the clear difference in just singing words and SINGING A SONG! Chalk it up to performance anxiety and how far you are in the competition. By this time, the remaining four have seen tens of other contestants be eliminated and the level of emotions that are expressed. By the time you get six remaining, emotions are still expressed, but the anxiety of waiting is gone; it's as if they've been holding their breath for days. Allison said she chose "Cry, Baby" because she could identify with the lyrics; last night, she wore it like a coat of many colors and worked the **** out of that song. Her swansong performance (only to the AI stage) was that of a seasoned pro who had been doing tours for years.

    She's a personable young lady with pipes that -if properly managed- will have a career that will send wannabe women rockers back to drum machines and voice modulators (hint, hint, Paula). Allison, just please finish high school because there are people who are going to SNATCH YOU UP BEFORE THE AI TOUR IS OVER!

    I have to comment on the whole Adam is the gay liberal idol and Danny is the religious conservative idol. Please people, get a grip. I have yet to hear Danny or Adam say anything negative against anyone. If anything, they've seem to genuinely get along and support each other and the other contestants. Too bad the rest of America can't follow suit. Just because Danny was a youth minister and Adam is gay really doesn't matter much, people. Vote for the best singer and leave your prejudices out of it. As a gay guy from Milwaukee, I really like both of them. The bitterness I read from both sides is pretty awful.

    Not the first year I've done this, but I won't watch AI anymore this season, and not because I thought Allison should have won. I can't believe that Gokey has gotten enough votes every week to keep him in the competition. I think Adam should win, although I'm not at all sure he'll be the Rock God that Kara has proclaimed him. Every so often the "voting" angers me enough to stop watching, and last night was the night for me. Gokey's getting a free pass was borderline acceptable until this week's performance and a win over Allison.

    So it ain't sooo.. Allison was the youngest with the least experience who has out shined the remainding three. I was pushing for her from the start. She should not have been booted before Danny, who is nothing other than a gospel singer, and i bet your bottom dollar that is where he will end up.

    ADAM why is he still there? Can someone PLEASE tell me, he is the most undiverse one left of the group, he has preforme the SAME tactic in songs from the beginning (rocky horror show would luv to have him as part of their cast for the stag play> Adam is no american idol, I had it down to Allsion and Kris..the most diverse of the group and why they HAVE last as long as they have..BUT DANNY? you got to be kidding me..should have been long gone!

    Without a doubt it should have been Chris and/or Danny. In addition to the judges playing good cop bad cop, one can surely question are the votes truly talied or is the show continuing to orchestrate its proceedings. However, lets assume the votes are truly counted, when you have a "Popularity Contest" being run vs. "Purely Talent" I suggest that you remove that one ingredient being the public's vote.

    People are funny. As if winning this thing really makes a difference. Just getting this far with all this exposure makes them all winners at point.

    It doesn't matter one bit who comes out number one. The actual winner won't be determined until we see who is left standing years from now. The most successful person in the long run could come from anyone who was in the top ten.

    I'd be fine had any of the top 5 were to win it. At this point folks are arguing that which really can't be argued–personal taste. None of them "suck."

    A shame to see Allison go. She had a ton of talent. I will say this, however: I have never seen a top 4 this strong on Idol in 8 seasons of watching the show. I really think that you could have taken Allison, Kris, or Danny (the 3 I don't think will beat Adam), and placed them in another season and won the whole thing. (With the exception of Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood). I know it sounds cliche, but this really was the most talented bunch, as a whole, that Idol has ever had. As far as Danny is concerned, the guy had been money all season long up until 1 risky air ball on Tuesday. Kris, I truly believe, is getting by with all the tweener votes. He hasn't really done it for me all season long. At least Allison, Adam, and Danny have had performances that I've remembered (i.e. Danny's Rascal Flatts song, Adams Tears For Fears performance, etc...) I truly think Kris goes home next, or deserves to. That is unless Danny stumbles 2 weeks in a row...

    At this stage, any of the top ten have a chance to make a successful career in the music business. They need to committe themselves to hard work, a smart strategy and finding a venue that allows them to capitalize on their talent. I think Adam is good but limited in what he can offer, Danny needs to find his nitch, Kris is perhaps the most talented in standards, smooth jazz and light rock, plus he has the look of a pop artist. Right now it is all about song selection and performance. Allison made the wrong song choice and assumed she was safe. The voting fans are fickled and don't consider the whole picture, it is more of knee jerk reaction and a devoted fan base. Having a devoted fan base saved Danny.

    Just based on their most recent performance, Danny or Kris should've gone home, not Allison.

    For those who say Adam screeches:
    No, Danny screeched. Now you know the difference.

    For those who say Adam should be on broadway:
    Fantasia, Clay, and others have been on AI and done broadway too.
    Other singers and actors have done broadway and had record deals.
    So what's your point?

    For those who say Adam's gay:
    So was the incredible singer, Clay Aiken.
    So was Mercury, Elton, George Michael, Halford, etc, etc.
    What's your point?

    For those who say Adam's too polished already:
    Daughtry had put out a CD before AI.
    Other AI alumni had been professionals (worked for pay) before going on the show too.
    So, again, nothing new – what's the point?

    For those who say Adam's being promoted by the judges:
    They're humans who are expressing their opinions.
    They're judges, not mentors.
    Ryan's job is to be neutral. Not theirs.
    If they like Adam, just like most of America, they're allowed to say so.
    Did you want them to lie to you?

    All these excuses have no point. Other successful contestants have been in the exact same circumstances before. This is nothing new. When you're done coming up with lame excuses for hating on Adam, get real and tell us why he makes you uncomfortable.

    Sorry to see her go in this week... she really did a lot better than Danny. He was horrendous. Her duet with Adam was GREAT. Unfortunately, I think the fate is decided already for the next American Idol... it really doesn't matter how well people do week-to-week, voters already have their pick. She did sound much better & seemed much more comfortable singing "Cry Baby" lastnight on her last performance. She WILL be like Chris Daughtry in the sense that this is just the beginning for her.

    10 years from now Allison will be the only one we remember. I predict she will sell more albums than all of them combined. We will get tired of Adam really quickly, the drama is too much.

    Wow, Danny must still be getting the pity votes!. I was hoping it was
    him after totally messing up the Aerosmith song. At least what you call screeching ADAM could of handled that one. I will say that Danny sounded better on the duet though,. Allison has made bad song decisions the whole season but I really wanted her and Adam in the finals. Say what you want but go listen to some Queen, Guns & Roses, David Lee Roth(Van Halen), Aerosmith and others that scream as you call it and the winner is ADAM.

    The weakest singer is Kris – each have a bad night, however, overall the top 3 should be Allison, Adam and Danny – all the young girls are voting for Kris based on his looks, which is totally unfair – most everyone is right though, Allison WILL get a contract as will Danny and Adam – Kris probably will too – his voice is just too weak for me –

    The reason Danny should go is because his voice gets annoying. OK, most times his pitch is right, but his damn voice is not easy on the ear over time. At the beginning when they were selling his story, he had some good moments, then the sheeple were hooked, so it's hard to get rid of him. You all have tinted hearing aids on now when listening to him. Kris has mellowed his meth mouth, which early on was very annoying, but it did come back a little Tuesday night. Don't tell me you all don't remember "Meth Mouth." The final two, talent wise, should have been Allison and Adam, with the more experienced Adam winning and Kris getting third. Anyway, Allison is pure and natural. She will be rocking at a stadium near you in the near future.

    This is what I don't like about AI: the winners are determined by how many votes their fans cast, NOT who's the most talented, most popular, or who did the best performance. A singer can have more fans but still lose if a less popular singer's fans manage to cast more votes through various means.

    Too bad it's impossible for each voter to only cast one vote.

Chris and Danny on the other hand? I really get the feeling Cowell was doing what he could to get her off. Not sure why he did not like her and why he likes those other two boring guys. Adam, on the other hand, is in a league of his own but Allison is right behind him. Love that voice of hers. Good Luck Iraheta!

I feel confident that Daughtry would not have made it as far so quickly, had he gone to the end....Allison seems the same caliber of talent to me. What a beautiful, smart, little girl.

    Kris should've left a long time ago. He's a generic singer, not really cute and I can't watch him because of the strange way he moves his mouth when singing. The guitar even looks oversized for him. It's funny how Simon Cowell told him it may have not been such a good idea to reveal that he was married early on in the finalists week. Simon knows that a lot of the voting is based on background stories.

    Danny is talented but the kind of songs that suit him are not popular with a wide age range of people. He's not good enough for potential platinum sales. I also agree that he may be getting a lot of sympathy and Christian votes that have nothing to do with the way they performed. If he goes before Kris or vice versa, they'd be getting each others' votes because Kris is an active missionary also. So Adam has no chance now that he's left with the two of them.

    I think Allison and Adam are equally as good. They're interesting to watch and listen to and have their unique styles. I'll be looking forward to hearing her first album soon.

He can sing ballads which he received standing ovations for such as Mad World and Tracks of My Tears. I love his version of If I Can't Have YOU. He did not scream in any of those songs. AT least he can sing and has control over his high notes unlike Danny. He should have gotten the boot and hopefully America will give him one next time. Adam should win Idol, but I could live with Kris. It really doesn't matter what you think MO. You obviously do not appreciate true aritistry and entertainment. NOBODY is going to buy Danny's stinnky music or watch his stiff/boring performances and inability to hit high notes buy you. WE can't bring Allison back, but people will get a chance to buy her music. GO ADAM AND KRIS. AMERICA PLEASE GET IT RIGHT NEXT TIME.

If so the winner will be him and mean nothing to the majority of music loving people like me. Allison is a true talent,stage pesence and an amazing voice for her age. Adam is a pleasure to watch and a real talented fellow. They are the ones and bloggers know it. The shame of it all and the whole thing is a sham. So the religious right win again? I won't watch any more. Hate the bull, we have too much of it in this world. No sense playing if the whole thing is rigged. Digusting result!

    these results r just another indication of where mainstream america is. it's unfortunate. chris is adorable but clearly the least talented singer/performer - though his narrow range will suit alternative/pop hits just fine (so would a million voices tho). his performance and danny's were equally weak, but danny does have the better voice. allison was wonderful last night, but I agree that its pretty irrrelevant to her career. and adam, well he has limitless talent and appeal in my opinion - but i don't think he can win. the vitriol/bigotry/hatred in some of the criticisms levelled against him really should raise eyebrows. (the worst i tend to see written about the clean cut boys is that many find them boring or mundane.) of course i know adam will be a superstar, but the backlash /anyone but adam vote i fear will take the day in the final analysis. Mo, in the comment above mine now, case in point. he's still saying all ADAM can do is scream! have we been listening to the same show?

    What a shame. Allison is great and should be in the top 2 at least. I think Simon's snide comment last night-"I think maybe Adam saved her"-really hurt her chances to stay in the competition. Also, Kara and Randy criticized her last night saying she picked the wrong song. Give me a break-that song was perfect for her and she nailed it. Adam will definitely win, so the others might as well accept it, and the interest has really gone out ot the show now I think. All of the top 4 are good, but I will definitely buy Allison's album.

    I only wish Adam had performed "Dream On" last night. He woulda showed Gokey what it means to hit a note. Gokey was right about the laughter, I started laughing the minute they announced his song choice because I immediately thought about that high note. Even Slash was like, "well, it depends on the performance" which means Gokey couldn't even consistently hit it in rehearsal.

    Kris is a dime a dozen. Danny just a boring blues singer. Neither of them will make a career even if they win. Only reason they've gotten this far is by getting the teeny bopper and tween vote, "OMG, like Kris is like SOOO cute"

    I wish AI would not permit repeat votes! I'm guessing with a one phone – one vote rule, Kris would have been gone long ago. He just has a fan base that is able to vote for 2 hours on end. Don't believe me? Look at the battle of the Davids on Amazon. Cook is far outselling Archuleta. Why? Because each little screaming girl only buys ONE CD.

This year it will be a total wash when one of the best singer/attraction will not be in the final. Adam may have the best vocal range but he appears to be too chosen by the judges and do not think is a true rocker. Only time will prove once again that the best singer did not win or even reached the final. Only three times from the past seven seasons have the best singer/entertainer have won the crown. Unfortunately, this year will make it three out of eight times. This mean that American Idol is batting less than .500.

    Allison was the real winner tonight. Overall, she has the best voice of all the finalists. Moreover, Allison's voice is the one distinct voice in the group. Sure, Adam has a very strong voice, and he has had some good arrangements. However, enough money can buy all the good arrangements one wants. Adam's style is good for the tv show. Still, when all is said and done, Adam really doesn't sound all that different from a hundred other chicks. Say what you like about Simon, he is a master at flesh peddling, and he runs the show. He and Allison will be smiling all the way to the bank. Just ask Daughtry.

    Allison is by far the greatest talent!! You know that if Danny or Kris win, they will be the next Taylor Hicks – a complete bomb. Let us know when your album comes out Allison – I'll be first in line!!

    What a joke. Allison should have been in the finale, and possibly even won. Seriously, who is going to buy an album from Kris? No one. Not unless is has a bunch of pictures of him for the teeny-bops to drool over.

    Kris sucks! Boring, and he can't sing that well! WTF America?

    Danny has talent, but he absolutely bomed with "Dream On" last night.

    Adam was very good as always. Although his high pitch, girly voice, might get old quick.

    Allison was the dark horse, and she could have won it all.

    I'm done watching AI this season. If Kris wins, I'll never watch AI again.

    What a travesty! Based on last night's performance, Danny should have left. He was HORRIFIC! People complain about Adam screeching when he hits high notes, Danny's was a zillion times worse, it sounded like a cat screaming, and not just the last note. Someone should have put him out of his misery. The only reason he may have been "pardoned" was based on his body of work. But even then, he's no match for Adam.

    Adam and Allison were the most interesting contestants, now there's only Adam left. I like Danny and Kris but as performers and singers they are generic and not memorable. YAWN!

    The rest of AI season is gonna be such an anti climax.

    If Adam doesn't win this will be the biggest FIX in the history of entertainment.

He has not had a bad performance until last why should one bad song choice send him home??? Listening to Adam mutilate, scream and screetch popular songs week after week has been painful enough for to watch him pack himself into those skin tight pants that he wears, gag......I can barely take any more. Danny is awesome, humble and a wonderful human being who is thankful for everything that he has. If THAT makes me deaf, then I'm glad to be deaf.

    The fact is, they could've sent home Allison or Adam tonight and it wouldn't matter because career-wise? They'll both go on to great things. Adam is ridiculously talented and I wanted to buy his CD when the season started. I think we all know it's a mere formality at this point. He's going to win.

    Give Allison a couple years to grow into her voice and she'll be kicking a$$ all over the place. It doesn't bother me at all that she left, because she'll have a career in music regardless.

    The only two people who actually NEED to win this show to make careers are Danny and Kris. If they left tonight, they would be forgotten in two years time.

    Kris is the most "radio ready" of this season. Adam has the best vocal ability. Danny has the most recognizable voice. They all three deserve to be in the Final 3.

    Allison was a good singer, however she lacked the charisma and commercial appeal, mainly due to her immaturity. She's only 17 and will learn from her mistakes that will lead her to a very successful career. She just needs to show some friggin' emotion out there. She could do so much more with those songs if she would PERFORM them rather than just sing them really good.

    It'll be a good race, and those who think Adam is a shoe-in; keep thinking that. Kris is right there and could get enough of Danny's votes to overtake Adam in the final.

As far as the winner goes, I sure hope it is not Adam. He is way over hyped, and his act is getting really old. If he wins, he will be another taylor hicks. A winner of idol, but a loser in album sales. Adam is just an entertainer, not a singer. America needs to understand that this is a show based on signing not acting.

    Think of the contestants as political candidates. Adam gets the liberal vote, Danny gets the conservative vote, and Kris and Allison get the independents. Now that Allison is gone, who will get her votes? Do they go liberal, conservative, or stay independent? I'm guessing 50% Adam, and split 25%-25% Danny and Kris. The real question is next week, when most likely Kris is gone. Will the independents go liberal (Adam) or conservative (Danny)? If the AI voters reflect the nation, then Adam wins it by a reasonable margin. However, if Danny is voted off next week, then all the conservative votes will go to Kris, and he will be the winner. So Adam Fans, I think you are better off in a final with Danny than with Kris.

    Allison was cheated just like Chris Daughtry was several years ago!How long will Danny get by and very likely because of his personal tragedy? Sympathy can go just so far. Allison performed like a true rocker (this was Rock week wasn't it?) while Danny screamed like an electrocuted banshee. She deserved a spot in the top three and to return home a hero. I was at least pleased to see that some of the judges were not happy with the results either. Idol voters need to do better. I hope Allison succeeds like Chris Daughtry did. She deserves it.

    How could you people not vote for Allison, she is a powerhouse singer....I am should vote for the best singers, not the guys because they are hot or cute....hopefully she will end up like Chris Daughtry or Jennifer Hudson...You go girl, you rock!!!!! Allison, you are the best!!!!!

    Based on singing only, Allison should have been in the top three. It's true that last night was Danny's weakest performance of the season but he is an awesome talent! (bad song choice, I'll give you that)

    I think that while Kris very definitely has an apeal he is clearly the weakest singer in the group. I picked Danny and Adam to be in the finals since Hollywood week. Forget about last night, Danny is money! He and Adam are definitely the two best singers in the contest.

    This is exactly why they shouldn't give telephones to idiots. Allison CLEARLY smoked Danny and Kris, and it wasn't even close. Danny's getting the sympathy vote from women, and God only knows where Kris is getting his support from. Clearly, America has no clue.

    NO WAY AMERICA! WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU ALL?!? Danny has been mediocre for weeks, and screamed that awful note. The final should have been Allison and Adam. I am starting to think that America just wants a safe, forgetful winner. Adam and Allison's duet was amazing. I personally want this to be the year for the rocker, not the "cookie-cutter" pop star. GO ADAM! But really, he will have international fame despite whatever happens- he doesn't NEED American Idol victory, just the exposure. Danny and Kris NEED the title for their careers, and you know what, they are limited. Sorry, but it's the truth.

    This is crap. If Allison had been a cookie cutter, twiggy blonde, the teen girls would have kept her in the competition. Instead, one of the two most talented contestants gets eliminated after two incredible performances. And Gokey, after his banshee's shriek, sticks around.

    I'm not watching this show for the rest of the season. Adam has won, and neither of the remaining two contestants present a challenge to that foregone conclusion. Allison is an incredible talent, and she will succeed after this show, and the show will suffer with her leaving, which is great, because Cowell never gave Allison the credit she deserved. I hope she finds a label that Cowell can't profit from ASAP. He sure as heck didn't help Allison get as far as she did.

    Sad because as usual, the people who call in to vote don't know talent at all. But not to worry because this girl will have a successful music career. She will sell records and Dokey Gokey will fade away like the guy who won a few years ago -Taylor Hicks, another voter mistake.

    She was one of the more distinctive voices, and quite talented. She DOES need time to mature into her voice, but I totally think American got this one....WRONG!! This girl has the gift, and sadly those voting just couldn't keep her in the competition.

    Alas, I am not so sad, as it is obvious to me that either Danny or Adam will win. So whether she is out today or next week, her chances of making the final two was slim. (Although between us girls...I think she is a more versatile artist than Danny or Kris).

    That was the completely wrong outcome. Allison and Adam were the two best performers by far last night in both the solos and duets. Kris should have been sent packing this week. Allison is a true talent who will go far, though. Just look at history and what happened to Daughtry on this same point in the competition and what happened for him post A.I.
