It’s all come down to tonight!
Adam has re-written the rules of what a prospective Idol should look like, dress like, and most importantly, sing like. As Kara DioGuardi said last night, he’s always remained true to himself, regardless of what genre he’s singing.
As for Kris, he’s won over the hearts of just as many cougars as he did tweens. His likeability is through the roof, and his acoustic ability shines through on almost every song he rearranges to his liking.
So the big question is…who will be the next American Idol? The blogs have been heating up all day, with different predictions left and right. Here are some examples:
Newsday: “I'm going with Adam -- but then again, I've also been wrong more often than right this year. And no matter what, when you think back on this season, it's going to be Adam who jumps to mind first. As Simon said last night, he defined the competition and set the bar high for everyone else.”
Carrie Underwood: "I think it's up in the air. I think there definitely seems to be a lot more outspoken people for one person in particular - but you might be surprised."
LA Times: “Just because Adam Lambert has the most buzz and the highest Cool Factor doesn't mean he's a cinch to win American Idol. Many Idol fans have mistakenly underestimated Kris Allen over and over again in the past.”
