It’s final. The final competition in American Idol Season 8 will be between Adam Lambert and Kris Allen. Apparently, Kris’ rendition of Heartless last night gave him the spot. Meanwhile, Danny’s lifeless performances the past weeks finally took its toll. Sympathy votes weren’t enough it seems. Yeah, we’re sorry for Danny’s loss. But this is a singing competition — and Kris has been outperforming him for so long already. Nevertheless, Danny’s vocal prowess cannot be denied, no matter how limited. It was a surprise though, considering it was only Danny who never made the bottom 3.
So, is Adam a shoe in now? We’ll have to see next week. There were 88 million votes for the final competition and it was reported that only 1 million votes separate the top 2 contenders. This begs the question — who will Danny’s fans vote for? I think if Adam doesn’t sing a slow one next week, he will be in big trouble. He will have to showcase his versatility for people to forget his questionable sexual preference. I honestly don’t care about his sexual orientation and I am absolutely certain he deserves the win. But we can’t forget that there are still millions of people out there who think differently. Many will still go for the gorgeous newly-wed who sings like Jason Mraz with those sexy eyes. Kris is gorgeous, but Adam is 100 times more talented. Go Adam!
