    Good luck, Adam. I can't believe Kris is in??? He only had a couple of good songs that were decent and he has such a way of making you feel awkward. He does not seem to have the confidence in himself. If I would pick an idol, I would want someone who has the whole package (be able to sing and present himself well with confidence)!
    Adam is a performer, can sing anything and presents himself very well. This final would have been better with Adam and Allison competing. Both are very unique. Kris, Danny and others were just like anyone else on AI, all the same, nothing special to offer like Adam and Allison. My votes are for Adam!!!!!

    I have been a musician since I was about 12. Lessons, 3 instruments. But I always wanted to sing well and just couldn't. But over the years listening to different singers, people trying out for choirs, bands, vocal groups, I can tell you that Adam has vocal ability that is off the charts. But everyone does not listen to his kind of rock. If he's told what to sing, he may do well as he has great ability. Danny had that soulful Joe Cocker type of voice, the kind of voice you would lay back and soak in the words, that are so heartfelt. I thought he was tremendous. Kris, is talented, but does not have good range with his vocals and should be judged for that, as they all should be. Give credit for the real talent, not the appearance. you should vote honestly, and ask yourself, which one really has the best vocal voice. thats all you hear on a record, you won't see them. If you can't do that, then you shouln't vote at all.

  4. kris sucks

    OMG, what an ABSOLUTE joke – Kris is in? He SUCKS! The only ONLY reason he is there is because he's cute – all 5 ft of him.

    I will NEVER watch AI again, what an absolute crock.

    If Kris was ugly, he'd have never made it past Hollywood.

    I can never understand why people make mean comments when their favorite doesn't win. The majority rules and in this case the majority voted for Kris and Adam. Be happy for the winners, don't try to undermine their victory, so it wasn't your choice – that does not make it the wrong choice. Personally, I like both of them in different ways, so good luck to the winner and the runner up.
    Love American Idol, would be awful if it was always predictable.

    Why am I not surprised! Gokey was robbed. I knew there was a problem when I couldn't get through on the landline and so many times the cell didn't work either. No one who has watched AI should be shocked. They have been pushing Adam Lambert on us since the beginning. Did Katy Pary actually have Adam's named on her cape? Wow! I do believe this is my last season of idol. I don't think America likes being manipulated this way. Is this supposed to be a talent contest or a showcase for your performers who need a little boost? Sorry, Kris, but you were the only one who could be defeated by Adam! Kris Fans, vote till your fingers are raw! I am done!

  7. Danny will do great

    He has a niche and he'll do very well in it. He was never an all-around, not like Kris.

    Adam, well, I just cannot take anymore of that style of singing. I can't wait for Idol to be over so I don't have to hear the high-pitched whine-sing that he does, and the "cabaret" style he has. It's not that he's bad, but he's just boring, it's all the same every week. Cabaret act, high voice, screechy style....yuck, SO annoying

  8. Disappointed

    Last night convinced me either that AI is fixed or the American public doesn't know a good vocal from a cat screech. Adam has talent but sounds the same in every song he sings. Screeching his way to the top doesn't get it for me.

    I feel bad for Danny since he has more talent but has not had the years to perfect his appeal visually to the audience. Chris will now give it all to Adam. I will not be watching as I don't like shoe in shows.

    Even some of the judges were taken by surprise.

    Although, Adam was my pick, I feel bad for Danny. He tried to do different things and he should be proud of that. I like Kris, but really and truly, he should have NOT been chosen to stay. I believe if he comes out to win next week, it isn't for his talent but for his personality. While that is important too in the long run, this is a talent show and he sounds the same no matter what he sings.

    Well, I'm guessing that most of Danny's fans will now vote for Kris. 🙂

    Becuase if you are voting for Danny, That probably means you like his style of music, Kris and Danny share about the same style.... Adam, is completely different.

    I am definitely a Kris fan, but if Adam wins I won't be suprised. He is definitely the most talented idol of all the seasons. I don't exactly like his style of music; therefore, I'm not a big fan of his.

    Kris has been doing really well for the past few weeks. . .KEEP IT UP DUDE!

    YAY! So You Think You Can Dance starts next Thursday, That show is soooo much better than American Idol.

    At the beginning of the show, I predicted (correctly) that Danny would be gone. I saw him as the "odd man out". The girls all love Chris, and Adam is just too talented to get the fewest votes. Don't feel too sorry for Danny. His ticket is written.

    We could not believe Kris made it. He should have been gone 3 weeks ago. He can't hold his notes, he's out of tune. We wanted Danny and Adam at the end. Our votes will be going to Adam.

    Ryan called the top vote getter first....KRIS!!! he also said that there were only 1mil votes seperating The two finalist. Danny was good and could SING, but he just didn't have the artistry that made him a finalist. Adam...what can I say..he is great to look at...I personally loved him the first couple of show...But he did the same EVERY WEEK...I am not as in love with him anymore. I pray Kris wins...He would be a great role model for our younger generation. He is a good guy with great talent!

    Although Adam Lambert is good, nobody is going to buy his music. I don't understand why you would vote for someone that you will never listen to. Kind of like Tayler Hicks. There is a very limited fan base out there for those people. To me if he wins, he will be just like the past idol winners who will not go anywhere due to his lack of skills in "popular" music.

    I love Adam, but I have to say, I thought he was in danger the other night after that horrid U2 song. But his versions of "Ring of Fire", "If I can't have you" and "Mad World" were brilliant.

    Kris has been coming on really strong. His "Ain't No Sunshine" & "She works Hard for the Money" were fantastic. But his fate was sealed the other night after "Heartless". Danny gave an incredible performance on "You are so Beautiful", but quite frankly, I forgot about it after Kris finished his song. "Heartless" was no doubt in my mind, the performance of the evening.

    All 3 guys are great and I think will do well in the future, but my prediction is that Kris pulls in Danny's fans and take the title. (You all did note that only 1 million out of 88 million votes separated the Top 2. Should make a great finale.!!!

    Now the score is zero to zero. Next week will bring on a clean slate. Seeing Adam perform, reviewing the "Mad World," "Born to be Wild," shows his variety and true talent. Kris has shown his ability, so both are true finalists. Who will America vote for? Based on talent or criticisms? These are both my favorites, either way, It'll be a tuff show next week and voting. Bring it on!

    My question is – if Adam is so great, then why is he having to rely on a "popularity" contest to get noticed? None of the greats had these contests to help them.

    Is AI hoping to bring back Glam-rock? Well, I've got news for them. This kid is no Bowie, Bolan, Elton or Freddie. Gary Glitter is more like it.

    I actually am beginning to believe that this show could be rigged. After what happened on The Bachelor this year I think anything is possible. I just find it hard to believe that there are millions of people who actually like Adam's singing. I am not saying he isn't good but that show has never been about hard rock and if it starts to go in that direction I will be done watching. I really like Kris and I am hoping Danny's fans will go over to Kris and vote for him. I can only hope now.

    This is GREAT!! America got it right. After Tuesday's performance Kris proved that he has the chops to win. He is not the best, but he is more deserving than Danny. Adam has given over the top incredible performances week after week. Even if Kris pulls another great song out of his hat, Adam is head and shoulders the BEST American Idol has ever had. I don't think the majority around the world will ever embrace Kris Allen the way they are embracing Adam Lambert.

    If Kris garners just 60% of Danny's voters (and I'm guessing it will be MUCH higher than that) he is your next American Idol.

    And for those of you who are voting for Adam – pull up some of his pre-idol performances on Youtube and make sure you know what you are voting for. He doesn't much resemble the act he puts on each week on network TV.

    Maybe I am wrong, but possibly Danny lost because the majority of American Idol voters liked Kris and Adam more. All these people complaining about the show pimping Adam, they sure didn't complain when everything was about "poor widower Danny Gokey". The judges were saying he was one of the favorites while they were still auditioning. Why weren't all of you complaining then, because he was getting all of the press and compliments from the judges. Now about the cover of EW, Adam got the cover because they wanted him and no one else on the show. I would say something about the complaints about special lighting and staging, but it's not worth replying to a bunch of whiners. This was a singing competition and Adam, for all your complaints about "screaming", outsong Danny week after week. It seems to me his fans need to be sending out all of their well wishes and congradulations for a job well done to Danny , instead of wasting time making excuses for his lost.

    Kris ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! His sound is very unique. My daughter was sooo excited and we are all hoping he will pull a big upset. He knows how to take a song and make it his own. I really don't like to hear the same song sung the same way on this show. He has proven he has what it takes to move on. I like Idol to give someone a shot who might not otherwise get one. I believe Adam also has what it takes and he didn't need this show to be a mover and shaker in the music biz. (Carrie Underwood didn't either and I have always felt she took someone else's chance away, she was well on her way before Idol she was always doing concerts and things in Arkansas and Oklahoma prior to Idol and had been since she was very young) With that said GO KRIS GO! I am hoping for a shocker but both guys have what it takes to make it big so did DANNY gonna miss him. As always someone will give him a chance Thanks to his being on the show. This years show was the best yet.

    I think there's a real chance Kris could steal this competition out from underneath Adam. He is so much less divisive than Adam and so the Adam-haters (read: Gokey fans) will probably put Kris on speed-dial, and it just may be enough.

    I don't care either way; I'm just so happy they both made it to the finals; I like them both for different reasons!

I have nothing against him, but hear me out. He always sings last and has the most "flair" ie lights, zooming cameras all around, etc. He is currently the only Idol contestant to currently grace the cover of Entertainment Weekly. Poor Gokey and Kris didn't and don't have a chance. Oh, I forgot to mention that Katy Perry was wearing an Elvis like cape with the name "Adam Lambert" on it during her performance tonight.

    Kris is a LOT more distinctive than Danny. Danny has a very good voice, but he is BORING - shouts his way through the upbeat songs and picks the cheesiest ballads. He is destined for a (probably long) career in the contemporary Christian or gospel market. Kris Allen is current and relevant. No, he's not the most exciting performer, but he is a good singer, an excellent musician and he actually performs stuff I would expect to hear on the radio in 2009 - not in 1989 (like Gokey).

    for those who think a Kris/Danny match at the end would have been "better" a way you're correct, they are closer together
    in talent, the playing field would have been even/level...
    Adam is head, shoulders and everything else above them in talent, stage presence etc. star material performer.
    Adam has out performed them all the way through this thing, and
    the judges are smart enough to know that.
    I don't think that Perry girl should have had the name on the back of the cape, but it is a live show, maybe didn't tell them she was going to do it? but I notice the cape disappeared.

    Just goes to show you there are still Americans who see true talent! One thing about Adam is he can sing just about anything and works the stage better than any of them. A true performer! No doubt in my mind from the very beginning when I first saw him he would be the next American idol and more. You got to have some musical talent to actually recognize Adam's talent for those of you who say he just screams. Adam is the best! No doubt about it.

That's how long they were out and some folks couldn't vote. I wish all of Taylor Hicks' fame for Adam. lol...I couldn't help but laugh.

    I shouldn't say such things. Maybe Kris has a chance against Adam. lol Oh darn it! I couldn't help but laugh again.

    Kris may as well not bother showing up next week. Simon wants Adam, so Adam it will be. Kris is going to be the whipping boy next week.

    Boy has this show sunk to an all-time low.

    So pleased about Adam! America made the right choice by choosing Kris instead of Danny. Adam will win this whole thing and fully deserves to!

    Kris is awesome, so, so talented and humble about it- why would you say AI is fixed? It only makes sense that Kris and Adam would be in the top 2 spots if they have the most Itune downloads....The same people who are buying their music are probably voting for them too!

    Poor Kris, even when he does amazing he still can't catch a break. But, he is the quiet and dark horse that I think will win it.

    i think adam should win...he's by far the most talented and different....but he clearly WILL NOT win. think about it....all those people that voted for danny....will now vote for kris....they both are similar...sad, boring, and forgettable. i'm just glad to not have to see another pair of Danny's gay glasses..

    Danny, I see it as a good/bad thing that you didn't make the final two. It seems I remember you are a youth pastor? Firstly, I take it seriously the name of the title "American Idol". We shouldn't have idols, but we at least should pick someone who is worthy to be a role model for America. You have a good heart, Danny, I can see it and you are a good role model. Your singing is awesome. Look at this as an opportunity, you went very far, and are likely to go much further. But don't ever forget your worth should come from God, not what people think of you. You are a worthwhile human being and your life is worthy because of God in you and what He has done for you. God bless you and the walk in life He has in store for you.

    Danny will have a huge career no matter what. He is fantastic.

    If Kris wins, it will be less of a vote for Kris and more of a vote against Adam and what people think he represents. Read some of the posts around here- the anti-Adam comments can be legitimate at times when they address song choice or something but they can also be pretty vitriolic with barely disguised or outright homophobia.

    If Adam and Kris has the most downloads on iTunes, why would you blame AI for fixing the competition. Do the people who download also not vote?

    Chris will not be remembered in years to come. Sure he's cute but his voice is not distinctive. Danny is very distinctive, and will make more of a mark in the industry long term. No one, unfortunately, could beat Adam, so I guess I'm glad to see Chris have to be slayed by the beast.

    DANNY is the real deal. Unfortunately, Americans get it wrong again.

    He deserves it. He is a great talent. Congrats. I like Danny too and let's face it all of the top 4 will probably have very successful careers. Adam is a little bit much for me. I like him a lot better when he goes with the slower stuff like Tracks of Tears and Mad World. The over riffing and high screaming just isn't for me I guess. Danny is great but I think on a CD many of the tracks would be so similar after about song 5 I would probably be tired of it. If I was going to buy an CD I would buy Kris's. All 3 have great talent, it just comes down to taste. Good season all the way around.

    AI is definitely fixed. Danny had never been in the bottom 2 and all of sudden he's voted off? No freaking way! It was posted a few weeks back that Kris and Adam had the most downloads on Itunes. I guess we all see that it's all about the Benjamins and not talent.
