    Oh.. and Adam screams his way through the show...... and sticks his tongue out in a strange way... he is not any better then Danny or Kris...they all deserve to be treated equally and not be dissed by the guest supposed entertainer like someone as sleazy as Katy Perry.... why would they have her on the show anyway.. .she is nasty...
    I am betting Kris will win... wow.. won't that shake up the judges... they are so sure that their cheap cheating tactics will get them the winner of their choice.. I say... shake it up.. and give them a real winner.. Kris... Kris... Kris....

    American Idol Cheated when they allowed Katy Perry to endorse Adam Lambert on the back of her costume.. that was so unfair.. and that should not be allowed... I say that the judges have endorsed Adam from the start and push their pick all the way... regardless if it is unfair to the remaining contestants... sad that they would stoop soooooo lowwwww as to cheat to get what they want....

    Well as you all know just because you win American Idol does not mean you are the best. Just look back at past winners and then the success they had. The runner up and the third place singers became more famous then the one who one the whole thing.

    And now with the rumor Simon may not be back next year we will just have to wait and see.

    American Idol will never be the same with such an amazing top 4! I expect each of them to have great sucess. The majority of $ made in this business is from the sale of recordings. I expect Kris and Adam to be the finalists and strongly recommend that you listen to a couple of recordings before you vote next week. Kris's recorded voice is even more amazing that live. He is a true musican and American Idol!

    I feel my self that the two who should go to the finals are Danny and Kris, Adam is good and he is versatile, but the reality is Adam is a rocker and we have so many of them, The other two contestants would add variety and soul and depth to the music business. They are the real American idol contestants and either one of them is worthy of the title. Nothing bad to Adam he just isn't my favorite,

    I would like to say that I have been a fan of Kris Allen and Danny Gokey from the beginning. Kris is my favorite and I am from Arkansas.
    I have a problem with the voting last night and I have talked to quite a few people and they all said they had problems with all numbers for Kris, not being a good number try again. I tried on my cell for over and hour and each time it would just not go thru. It wouldn't say the line was busy just go dead. I have voted from the beginning and had no problems. I am hoping not all of Arkansas had as much trouble as I did.

    Kris is #1 and should win. Danny – stop straining to sing. It's sounds awlful. Adam – seems like a nice guy but the screaming and that tongue! YUCK. Stick to Broadway – you'll do GREAT. Kris is the clear winner this year. He continues to grow as an ARTIST week after week. Danny and Adam just stand there and perform and rely on their ignorant fan base to pull them through every week. Kris will have a brighter and better career than then others. The big question is: how can we get Anderson Cooper on the show? That would be as Randy would say, "Da Bomb!"

    I thought all three contestants were great last night. I think we really need to look at the overall performances throughout the competition and figure out who really stands out the most. To me, it is obviously Adam. He is so unique and so talented. I think that he has what it takes to be a superstar and whoever signs him on for a record deal will be very lucky. I have watched all of the Idol seasons but Adam is by far the most talented of the contestants and clearly deserves to win. Good luck Adam, I look forward to seeing and hearing more about you in the future.

    Based on over all talent Adam has won. He can sing, perform, engage and he carries himself in a star quality professional manner.

    Kris is talented but he does not act like a star. He apologizes all the time and looks scared of his own shadow.

    Danny has a great voice but he has never evolved out of the “I am singing in the American Idol show” mentality. While the other two are clearly showing who they are as artist, poor Danny is still trying to find himself. I think he is too little too late.

After he sang Cryin he commented on what a beautiful song it was and if we rewound it and listened to the lyrics we would agree....Well, I did rewind it and listen to it again and felt the same....I couldn't understand a word he said.....I love all kinds of music, but if I can't understand what you are saying I'm not going to buy your records.....

    Adam can sing, there's no doubt about that, but he's irritating to listen to, if that makes any sense. The high-pitched shrieking that seems to show up in almost every song he does gets old.

    He's like Mariah Carey who has to show off how many octaves she can sing in EVERY song she does. We get it Mariah and Adam... you have a great vocal range. But that doesn't mean you have to show it EVERY time. Every song it just so over done and is hard to listen to after a while. I honestly could not imagine listening to an entire album of Adam singing. One song is bad enough.

    Danny? He has a great voice. Very soulful and is someone I could listen to over a longer period of time. I personally think he should win, but I know he won't... The judges are wowed by Adam and it's already a done deal, you can tell.

    Kris? He's good, but not as good as Danny, and again, doesn't stand a chance over the already favored Adam. I'm sure he'll have a future in the recording industry, though. The runner-ups always do.

    Adam, less shrieking and more singing! Show us you can do a range that goes from soft and melodic to your normal shrieking, screaming and over the top performances. Any time he's on and I have the show PVR'ed I just have to fast forward through your performances. Too much... ugh!!

    Kris Allen ALL THE WAY!! He has talent. He can sing. He can play any instrument.. He is ORIGINAL!!! You have to give props to someone for taking a chance and doing their own arrangement. Kris deserves to be in the finals.

    I'm ver Gokey! I think Paula has given him to much praise and built him up. He really isn't that great.

    Adam is ok but the screeching tends to get old. I do see talent in him but nothing amazing.

    This year is by far the toughest competition this show has ever had. All 3 finalists are good enough to win. The judges are trying to sway the fans to vote for Adam because Simon sees a cash cow in him. Not that he isn't deserving but I think the judges should stay clear of telling us who to vote for. They are all unique. Adam is a strangely off the wall unique talent who has had some great performances but his over the top stuff may turn off a lot of older voters. I thought his version of One was not great. Kris is not the best singer but he has the best musical instincts and will probably become a solid singer/songwriter and someday probably a music producer. The kid is really talented. Danny probably is the most gifted singer of the three but probably has the least creativity. As a pure singer Danny gets my vote but contrary to what Simon says, this is not just a singing competition. I think it will be close but I see Danny and Adam in the finals. One last note: last season Simon declared Adam Archuleta the winner; WRONG!

    Kris is the best artist. Adam is an 80's rock wannabe. I agree that he just has the rock scream and that's it. He doesn't have a personality, he just stands there like a slug.

    Let every judge has a fair share of comments. When comes to Simon, it's so difficult to hear him talk because the 3 other judges always made so much noise...c'mon give him a break!
    And don't forget to focus on the contestants and not the judges. Nobody even bothered to answer Kara's question. She asked whether Simon has ever interpreted songs in his whole life and she had to answer no herself. Don't forget Simon's the brainchild of Il Divo, Britain's Got Talent, etc. etc. You see nobody even listened to Kara.

    I thought one my of favorite seasons was with Clay Aiken but this season blows that one away, and a few others too.. My favorite is Adam and it was from day one. I grew up in the late 60's and Adam has the voice that I've always loved. He can do anything and do no wrong! He is original, personable, good looking, and intelligent.
    He has what you would call, The Total Package!!!!!! If Adam doesn't win I will probably cry but I know he will still make it big time, even if he doesn't. I already have his his songs downloaded on my ipod!!!! I would also love to see him in concert when the time comes.. Okay, Adam, you go guy, ALL THE WAY TO THE TOP!!!! Good luck Adam!

    Last night, you would have to admit that Kris stole the show with his acoustic rendition of Heartless. You have to wonder what Kara is thinking sometimes since his rendition of Apologize was also pretty solid. Danny was annoying on his first sing and brought it home with You Are So Beautiful. Adam had been my favorite for the majority of the season; however, last night he proved to me that he's nothing more than a poser and I still have no clue what type of album he would do. He sure isn't a rocker. Is anyone really interested in a theatrical rocker type anymore? Those types belong to the 60's and 70's....definitely the 80's. Today's rockers are more serious and grungy. Adam is nothing more than a Constintine and should stick to Broadway. He'll be an American Idol bust. I'm looking forward to a Danny/Kris finale; however, we all know that Adam is a "shoe-in" for one of those spots. Best of luck to Kris!

    Danny – Solid. Predictable. Saved his butt from his horrible attempt at doing Steven Tyler. He can sing. He's just boring. He picked Joe Cocker? Nah.. you don't say. What no Michael McDonald song handy?

    Kris – Wow... I wish I would have had two phones cause he was just awesome. I'd definitely buy his album. Heartless? Come on! That rocked and was completely unpredictable. This kid is way talented and keeps me on my toes.

    Even though all 3 finalists are extremely talented, Adam has blown away the competition week after week. While it isn't necessarily as exciting to watch when one performer stands out from day one, Adam deserves to be the "American Idol." This season, we have seen awesome talent..

    It's quite obvious since the final 13 that Adam was picked to win...yes he's good, but as previously stated he has had experience...Kris is a clear winner for all the hassle he's had and yet he still comes out on top. Danny is good if he sticks to his type of music....doesn't say much for his versatility but he's good. Adam has beenpuched in our faces all the way, and I like him, but he gets to sing at the end nearly every week, so he's fresh on everyone's mind, and he gets all this theatrical smoke blowing, special lighting stuff, to make him look so good. Allison and Kris should have been the final 2. It's clear who will win, but I don't think it'll be a surprise to anyone who has watched Adam close the show every week with all the hoopla available to him... Sorry, Allison and Kris.....the best 2 in the field.

    It's the "Adam Lambert Idol Show".
    Kris and Danny as Final Two
    Simon picked what judges for each, and picked the songs for them
    He busted himself when arguing with Kara about arrangments. Simon
    worked on the songs with Adam, now that is some kind of impartial
    judge. They picked difficult songs for Danny and Kris but they got
    fooled because those guys are the real artists "songmisters" left
    standing. The songs they picked for themselves were the best.

    again. Surprise Simon you might get one album from Adam and THAT
    Is ALL he'll sell. Adam shouldn't have been on the show from the get

    I agree Adam will probably win and he is very marketable. I foresee his new CD plastered next to the other ameerican idol finale picks...in Target. Where moms obligingly let there tweens buy up all the "rock" star music to their pink hearts content.

    Meanwhile those of us who enjoy good music that doesn't make us want to chew bubble gum, we'll be picking up copies of Kris and Danny CDs at MUSIC STORES where they sell talented artist wares.

    Great arrangements Kris & Danny. Thanks for not screeching through it . You two are so talented. I wish I could dump the Adam koool aid but hey at least you won't be signing in Target!

    Adam is AWFULl!!! I LOVE aerosmith but Adam was just awfull! He should have gone home a long time ago. He isn't even a rock star. He maybe should do broadway or vegas but that's it! The judges are to proud of him & for what I don't know. He is also to sure of himself & I don't know why. Looks? Maybe. He is to made.

    Allison should still be in this competition she was great! Powerful voice! Talented for sure.

    Danny was good but not his best. He has a voice though.

    Kris was awsome tonight! I think he should win for sure! I thought he knocked it out of the ball park! GO KRIS!!!!

    I hope to see Danny in the finals. All three guys are very talented in their own way. I am pretty sure all three will get recording contracts. I love Danny;s voice, Kris's originality, and Adam is definately different. I would buy something that Danny or Kris recorded but I don't think I could buy one that Adam recorded, but hey different strokes for different folks and there are a lot of people that seem to like Adam. I like the others don't like the way the judges seem to be pushing Adam on everyone. Each of these guys can look back and say they made it this far and it is a big achievement. Good luck Danny, Kris, and Adam!!!

    What I cannot understand is why the judges ask them to be themselves and to show them who they really are, but, they make comments like the ones on the rock week. I believe a final with Kris and Adam will be great and deserving. However, the three of them are talented. Adam has fantastic vocals, but I would'nt buy his albuns. On the other hand, I'm already excited for Kris production... Hope the judges are not pushing Danny to the finals to make Adam a easy winning...Last season didn't work. Just remind what Simon said to Cook and what a surprise...

    I have to say that my favorite all the way has been Adam Lambert. He is so good, that he is not only the best singer this year, but he may well
    be the best ever on American Idol. He is as good as any singer that
    is working today. He deserves to be a true superstar, with all that entails.
    He is original, he has all the voice talents, and he looks like a movie star.
    He may not win, but he is "THE AMERICAN IDOL" for this and every other year.
    I loved David Cook, and still do, but he is not up to Adam's level. Few
    people can or ever are going to be.
    I really do believe that people don't pull a stupid move, and let another
    Chris Daughtry happen. As for second choice. I pick Chris, for the reason that I think he is a more all around talent, maybe not his voice, but it is plenty good.

    I think Adam is a very talented guy but found his 2 performances annoying. I cringe every time he even looks like he's about to go into his Axel Rose screech & sticks out his tongue which has become his thing in every song. I'm taken back by how the judges are overly pushing for him and taking some well-deserved recognition away from the other contestants.

    I’m going to go out on a limb and say that, from what I see, Adam Lambert probably has the widest fan base of any American Idol in history. I’ve seen comments by “Tweens” and I’ve seen comments by women in the mid 50’s and older and….this tells me something.

    Not since Elvis, and mind you I’m not say Adam is he, but…..not since the “King” has anyone so electified the American viewing public. Look at the record voting the last few weeks.

    If… you can sell tickets to the Gericatics Ward and High School Seniors, then….. you have a true American Idol.

    I wasn't quite so much the fan of Adam tonight with his Aeorsmith screaming version. All of his songs begin and end great but the middle is always the same screaming noise. Yeah, he'll probably win with his good looks and great charisma but I'm just not the biggest fam of his. I really do wish it would come down to Kris and
    Danny. We all know that Adam is going to get picked up by some label regardless of whether he wins or not. Unfortunately, "dark horse" Kirs is probably going to go home tomorrow which is unfortunate. He definitely does have talent. Danny, I would love to see him win the whole contest but again, I think someone is going to pick him up too so his career is going to get a jump start anyway. The one that I would really like to see get voted off is Kara – holy cow. Does this woman always use such drama and enunciation under other circumstances? She drives me nuts!

    Adam is way too cocky and very into himself. Danny is nice and has a great voice but at the end of the day Kris is the one that is going to sell the most cd's.

    This is tough, fans. I like all three and for completely different reasons. Kris has a sultry smoothness that appeals to the romantic in me. Danny is soulful and passionate and moves the R&B side of my brain. Adam! Well, he has a rare gift–sublimely talented without excessive artifice–pure interpretations that seem to surpass the artistry of the original performers.

    If Adam doesn't make it into the finals, then I believe it will be because more people voted for the person that they most wanted to see compete against him.

    And as for those rediculous judges. Paula and Simon both need to chillax. I'm over their childish antics and consider their rediculous behavior to be utterly rude to the performer. If I were any of the audience members sitting behind the judge's stand, I'd be especially annoyed at Paula who needs to be strapped into her seat.

    The judges are horrible when it comes to Adam. No matter what he does they praise him. The first song was good, but Cryin was painful to listen to and the judges go nuts. Adam is talented, but screams way too much. Play back his past 9 songs and it is the same thing, scream after scream – talk about being boring. The judges should be impartial, and not try to hand someone the title. Kris and Danny definitely did much better than Adam on the second song. Go Danny and Kris!

    As for Kris – he's more the pop type singer. And although he does not have the same quality of voice as Danny, Kris is so much more versatile and entertaining to watch!

    Which leaves Danny. Pick any sappy love song, and that is exactly what Danny will be singing. Great voice, but boring! He is majorly lacking the charisma that entertainers need to - well - entertain.

    I'm hoping for an Adam-Kris final – it will be more interesting musically as they have such contrasting styles. I think Kris is more deserving than Danny. Danny has shown zero originality throughout the season. Kris and Adam have consistently attempted to make songs their own – and they are both creative and ambitious artists. For the most part, Gokey takes the safe route and sticks with the classic arrangements of the songs he chooses. He never accepts any of the suggestions given to him by the mentors. In short, Gokey is a bore. If he didn't have the dead wife backstory he wouldn't be in the competition at this point.
    He has a decent singing voice but he's not particularly talented (the voice is a gift – knowing what to do with it is the talent) and moreover he hasn't shown much growth over the season. If we rewatched the performances of Adam, Kris, and Danny one week at a time, this criticism of Gokey would be readily understood. Nevertheless, I'm bracing myself for the judges to fawn over Adam (deservedly – he is truly amazing) and Gokey (gag) and unjustly throw Kris under the bus like they did this week – all to ensure the pre-ordained "Adam-Danny" finale. Kris fans prepare to vote your a$$es off – we need to put the Go in Gokey and throw a wrench into the judges and producers best laid plans.

    If we are going on talent and marketability, Adam and Kris should be the final two. Sadly, talent doesn't always win out, and Danny has managed to win over a lot of people with his "back story" which we have all been beaten to death with. So I'm afraid that unless Danny stumbles even worse than he normally does and Kris blows everyone alway, than we'll be looking at an Adam/Danny finale.

    I just hope they all pick the best songs for each of them.

    I would hope that the idol judges will want them to show their BEST performances, so I would hope they'd give them songs that each of them can do the best with.

    And I hope that each of the guys will know exactly what THEY think they're best at, and choose accordingly as well.

    I want to say Kris is going home..but I thought he was leaving last week when they sent Allison home, so what do I know?

    I don't know about Danny's "fan base", but I know he's MY favorite, so I don't WANT him sent home.
    But, that doesn't mean the rest of the voters will agree with me.

    Adam. Well now THAT would be the shock of all shocks if he were to..heck I can't even say the words.
    I like Adam fine..but I DON'T like the way everyone is talking like he's already won the competition. It seems like from darn near the first time people heard/saw him they started talking like he was the next Idol. Now he very well may be–BUT I do think the viewers need to let the competition run it's course to the end before we crown the guy.

In fact, I think a lot of people have forgotten that his wife passed away 4 months before his audition, and he is still made it this far. Kris is also a likeable gy, but I think Danny is aead of him as far as talent is concerned. Here are the results: Kris, this week, Danny, next week, and Adam, your winner!!!!!!

    Prediction: Kris is going home on Wednesday. Sorry folks (I like all of them, but Adam and Danny have too large of fan bases to be sent home).

    Well, I believe it should go this way: Adam stays definitely and the other two, well, truthfully, either one to go is fine with me, but leaning towards Danny to go 🙂
