Don't vote. Let the Kradam fanatics duke it out on the phone lines tonight.

If Adam does that song again, (it is basically a big rip off!)

he may lead me to vote for the boring guy.

I hope he doesn't do it again - he just sang the damned thing, and it's fresh in people's memories.

If he's smart, he'll reprise one of his songs where he stayed in the subtle category ("Tracks of My Tears" or "Mad World"). A lot of the people who dislike Adam dislike him because of the screeching. Too much more screeching will just drive more people to vote for Kris.

I was talking about 'Mad World' it pales, compared to Gary Jules version that is not that old, and has been on dozens of t v shows, commercials and movies.
It worked best as the closing sequence of Donnie Darko. (nothing like the first time ! )


But, if the average IDOL voter is 14, it may be 'new' to them.

However, I did read an article and the average of IDOL viewer this year is closer to my age.

Oh, I thought you were talking about One, and I thought I was in that thread in the other part of the forum.

I hear you, though - I thought his version of Mad World was okay, but totally not worth such overpraise from the judges. Although they've done nothing but give him a massive tongue bath most of the season.

Fewer than a million votes - out of some 90 million cast for three contenders - separated Adam and Kris during the last round of voting.

Where do you think the (okie) Gokey fans are going?

They will decide the winner.

Could we have an upset?

^ Based on what I've been reading over at the AI site I would say they're split. So it's really anyones game.

I could easily see an upset, for a pretty wide variety of reasons:

1. those who just plain don't care for Adam's style of singing
2. tween girls who prefer the non-threatening cute boy
3. Idol fans irritated with the judges over-the-top pimping of Adam
4. people who want to be entertained by the ensuing internet drama of Adam losing
5. the dumbass losers who will vote for Kris because ZOMG TEH GAY

I mentioned this last week, but I honestly think that if Kris does win, it's more likely because of reasons 1-3.

People who want the drama (i.e., those actually following Vote For the Worst or other sites) don't actually constitute a large number of votes (or so I've heard).

And call me Little Miss Polly Sunshine, but I don't honestly think the number of assholes people in category #5 would be enough to do damage by themselves. In conjunction with the other categories, sure. But I'm already dreading the shitstorm of "Homophobes Ruined It" if Adam does lose.

I think I might have mentioned earlier that I fall in your category #4 (drama-seeker), but I really actually don't. I hope there isn't an upset. Adam deserves to win this thing. He's been the star of the show all year. But I guess we still have one more performance night (in 3 and a half hours ) and we should see what goes down. Theoretically, if Adam comes out and like forgets all the words to all of his songs or something then I guess Kris deserves it. But, avoiding all disasters, Adam should be and most likely will be the Idol.

Seriously, I'd say he would get 60-75% of Gokey voters.


And if only one million out of 90 million was the difference last week.
