The show was good last night......can't wait for the results.  I'm still hoping Kris makes
it to the final 2.   While I think Adam is fabulous, Kris is the only one I might possibly
buy his music.   ;D

Danny Gokey
Judges' Choice - To be honest, and no offence here, I didn't really care for the song choice. It was a fun song, he did have the energy, but to me it all felt similar and unspectacular. And about the dancing, it reminded me of Taylor Hicks again, lol.
Personal Choice - That was a fantastic song choice, beautiful song, beautiful lyrics. I agree that Danny really showcased his vocals but at the same time, I thought that he neglected the emotions of the song. While I'm impressed by his singing, I didn't really feel anything and it's a pity, the song is so beautiful. Oh, and I love Danny's husky tone.

Kris Allen
Judges' Choice - Just as I expected, it wasn't a wise choice at all. While I agree that more than half of the songs sung on AI are very popular, I still think that it isn't wise to choose a song that is so new and still very fresh in everyone's memory. Unless the contestant really changes it up (like what Kris did with Heartless), it's almost impossible to impress. An example would be Matt G having done Viva la Vida. But back to Kris, he sounded strained and sound-alike. I disagree with Randy, Kris doesn't have a big voice. What he has is artistry.
Personal Choice - Well I actually almost flipped when I heard his song choice. For one, I don't like that song and for another, the same reason as above. But wow, I was really impressed with his rendition of the song! Yeah, that's what he should have done to Apologize, change it up and all. Really really loved what he did with this song, just put him back in the running for final two.

Adam Lambert
Judges' Choice - I loved that he put different touches to the entire song, starting it slow, then building it up. I thought it was a really intense and passionate performance, really enjoyed it. And LOL at Simon boo-ing Randy, lol. Adam's the only one whose song for the first round I prefer.
Personal Choice - I would have preferred him to do a slower number instead of another edgy song but does it matter? He did awesome as expected. Week after week he showcases his mad, mad range. I'm glad Simon made that point at the end of the show on not assuming that he's automatically making the final two. So America, please vote like mad for Adam, cos Kris and Danny's fans will be voting like mad after all the praises Adam has collected!

All in all, it was an enjoyable night of stellar performances. Yeah, we all know it's gonna be one of the hardest votes ever. And I'm thinking, the voting margin could end up being as close as that in season five. I don't care which of Kris or Danny makes it as long as Adam does. But if Danny makes it with Adam, it'll kinda be like last season. Danny's the Archuleta and Adam's the Cook. Lol.

VOTE FOR ADAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I did not watch it tonight, but I have it on my DVR.  I didn't have enough self control to watch it later without results!
But I do think that the outcome is pretty good.  Adam's winning!

Adam and Kris did the coin toss after the broadcast tonight. Kris won the toss and selected to go second so Adam will be singing first next Tuesday. of course they both will be singing three songs.

I'm half surprised and half not at the results. Does that even make sense? Lol. Anyway, pretty happy that it's a Kris and Adam final two. Not cos I think Adam will beat Kris easily, but yeah, haven't really been a Danny fan since day one even though I agree he's a brilliant singer. Prior to this, I thought that if Kris made the F2, he'd lose to Adam totally. But after seeing how he's survived week after week, blossoming from the "guy-next-door without much confidence" to a "brilliant risk-taker", I'm thinking he could actually win this! What's more, there're only one million votes separating him and Adam and for all you know, Kris might be the one with the higher number of votes. So, let's not be too surprised if Kris really wins, although I wouldn't desire such an outcome and I'll still think it's a little weird.

Very happy with the results, Danny indeed left on a high note and he has loads to be proud of. While many were shocked, I guess from the instant that Kris was the first person through to the finale, no matter which of Adam or Danny left, it'd still have been a shock. Very thankful that Adam made it through, my heart was pounding like crazy when it was him and Danny left on stage. Big phew!

Congrats to the final two, congrats to Danny as well. This time, I felt the emotional connection. Well done guys! Sad that this season's coming to an end but I'm not geared up for an exciting finale!

ADAM FOR THE WIN!!!!!

WOW NO DOUBLE WOW!!! this has been the dark horse season for sure i love kris and danny and just like adam. soo i am thinking if the danny fans mostly vote for kris becaus they were on the fience any way and liked kris and danny like i did omg it will be a kris win for sure, just sayn...i think no matter what adam has deff made a name for him self like dautry and others that have not won.
 so i am more routing for a kris win :hides and jmo but it look to me from the home town turn outs that danny had the most ppl in the most places, and kris had almost as many i guess there fans were so worked, up they got tired and for got to vote jk, so the votes went from 46 mill to 88 mill wowowowowowow.....

The thing about Adam is that he is damn good and one hell of a singer and he has been a hot favourite to win this competition. But the thing is, his vocal range is wide.. but his voice does not appeal to the masses. For example, Fantasia can sing ANYTHING and EVERYTHING.. but she has not been very successful in her career, not just because of her image.. but also because of her unique tone which people either like it or hate it. For me, my POV for Adam is that he can sing and he wows me each time, but i do not enjoy his performance at all because i just do not like his voice and the way he sung his songs. It's just like how someone will prefer difference genre of music.. i think the reason why Kris has been surviving until today, is because his voice is of that of a recording artist and really really is soothing to the ears to many and appeal to the masses. And from what we know there has been a drastic increased in votes for the final 3.. with 88 million votes.. who knows whether a record breaking 100 million votes will be received for the finale or not.. and because most of the voted out idol fans will probably go to anyone but Adam because everyone would have expected him to win.. i suspect Kris has been garnering all the votes from the voted off contestants since people mostly like underdogs and would expect Danny and Adam to naturally do well and thus gives their vote to Kris, who managed to surprise everyone again and again after each and every week.

Going on to Danny.. i know he will not be in the final 2 since the beginning because of his image. The problem with Adam is that he lacks the voice to appeal to the masses, and the problem with Danny is that he hacks the image to do so as well. But look at Kris.. he possesses such a good and amazing vocal and has a really good humble attitutde and that makes people even like him more.

I am rooting for Kris, since i honestly thought he was a lame choice for top 12 and now, not only is he in the final 2.. but he has proved himself wrong each after week and proved to us what he can do as an idol. I'm so far impressed by him week after week and hope that he can continue to maintain this momentum on the finale.

Going back to the song choices.. love Kris's both songs, as usual could not understand Adam's interpretation and Danny's first song was crap while second song was what i think the best performance of the night.

With that, i'm rooting for Kris Allen!!! :hearts:

Lol, from the looks of this, I won't be surprised if Kris really wins. I think it'll be a huge shock if he wins. Firstly, beating Adam. Secondly, right from the beginning, he was just this very likeable guy with not much of a confidence and wasn't really expected to make the top 12. Guess the audience was pretty surprised when he made it. When he did, we wouldn't have expected him to last till the final 6, then final 4 (where I honestly thought he'd be gone) and now, final 2! It's really amazing and it's gonna be huge if he wins. I mean, he definitely deserves it, I love most of his performances, he's a very talented guy, very current and relevant, but I just feel there's something lacking in him. Stage charisma? Confidence? I don't know, but it's definitely gonna be an exciting finale. I agree about Kris possibly garnering more votes from the eliminated contestants' fans. Also, he could have a higher chance of winning due to Adam's image. For Adam, you either hate him or you love him. But for Kris, he's really humble and likeable, so... Yeah.

Having said so much, I'm still rooting for Adam. Lol!

And something I realised, for each season of this format, the final two have always been in the same group for the semi-finals. Kelly and Justin from group 2 in Season 1, Clay and Ruben from group 2 in Season 2, Fantasia and Diana from group 1 in Season 3, and Adam and Kris were from group 2. Okay, that was random. Lol.

Kris being in the final 2 reminds me of Season 3, where nobody expected Diana to even have a shot at the final 2 with big names like Jennifer, Latoya and Fantasia.. and i guess this format still works best for the show.. because the best people always has a better shot in making an impression..

Everyone makes such good points that I'm conflicted about who will win. (Or who I WANT to win!) I've thought since the final 12 that Adam would win but seeing the way that Kris has improved and beat Danny, it could go either way. I never thought we'd have a Kris/Adam finish.

All of them are tied contractually to the show so no one will really be free for several years to do what they really want to do.  Adam is at heart a stage performer; I think that is his forte. Kris and Danny don't have Adam's ability to perform but they both can sing, but thinking back, nothing really stands out as a memorable performance for either one.  For example, who can forget Fantasia singing "Summertime" or Katharine McPhee with "Over the Rainbow," Lakisha singing "Midnight Train to Georgia" or Chris Daughtry singing “Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman?"  OTOH, even if I don't recall a single song from Adam, I still remember his electrifying performances.

Well Adam could win cos of obvious reasons, him being the hot favourite since the beginning and I have no doubt he's gonna give fabulous performances again.

Kris could win due to Danny's elimination. I'd think that Danny fans would rather switch to voting for Kris than Adam. Since right from the beginning, there has been a Danny vs. Adam thing, so Kris could accumulate lots of votes there.

All in all, it's a tough call, really. I wouldn't mind if Kris wins but I'd prefer Adam, of course.

I think Adam will win, but it doesn't mean he'll win hands down either.

Last season the judges gave the show to David A, saying he won hands down with all 3 songs.. but David C still win.. with a better popularity..
