I thought each of the Final 3 American Idol Contestants had brilliant moments tonight. At this point, I think Adam Lambert should be our next American Idol. I won’t be surprised if he isn’t, though. I think Kris has been collecting the votes from the young females. I think Danny has been collecting votes from the conservative people who like singers who are kind of gentle and somewhat predictable. I think Adam is so unique and eccentric, that some people won’t appreciate him.
My analagy of tonights performances is as follows:
1. Adam Lambert
I thought his 1st song was truly phenominal. I thought he was incredible during
his 2nd song, however, I was not a big fan of the song he chose to sing. I know
the judges think that style really suits him, however, I would be more interested
in listening to an Adam Lambert CD that had a mixture of some ballad type of
singing mixed-in with some of the more erratic and dramatic singing than an
Adam Lambert CD that was all heavy, loud and dramtic.
2. Danny Gokey
I thought his 1st song was really nice, but, I wasn’t blown away by it. I thought
his 2nd song was his best performance this entire season. I was blown away by
it; I was sold after just the 1st few seconds of hearing it. I was extremely
impressed with his second song.
3. Kris Allen
I thought his 1st song was really nice, however, it was too much like the original
song. I wasn’t really getting into his 2nd song. I was surprised the judges were
so pleased with his 2nd song.
If the Final 2 American Idol Contestants are not Adam Lambert and Danny Gokey, I will be disappointed, but, I won’t be that surprised. I think a large percentage of the people who send in votes for American Idol contestants are young females. I think Kris Allen has been capturing a large percentage of the votes from the young females.
