Round one - first song

goes to Kris Allen, better song selection - more authentic performance

it was 88 degrees in L A today, why was Adam wearing an overcoat?

ok, Adam's second song is much better
keep it simple, and leave everything on the stage.

Kris takes one of the great Marvin Gaye songs
and makes it 2 dimensional.

He should not have played his wimpy guitar


Round 2 - Battleship Adama

Round 3 - new song - kind of boring.

Kris did better, Simon would not even critique Adam.

Omg, that song that Kara co-wrote was just AWFUL! I felt so bad for both Adam and Kris having to sing that crap!

I actually didn't think Kara's song was that bad. Either way, Adam sang it a lot better than Kris did. Kris seemed to be really struggling his way through that performance.

^I agree. I thought Kris's performance was kind of a trainwreck, actually.

That song. Hideous. I don't think Paula and Simon liked it very much either. Kara is a dork.


My left hand wants to vote for Adam, and my right hand wants to vote for Kris. It's a wash. I'm not going to vote and will let America decide.

Both sang the "coronation song" that Kara co-wrote.

Adam's second song was great. I was never a fan of 'What's Goin' On', but Kris performed it alright.

"Coronation song" =

Man, that Idol winner song gets worse and worse every year, doesn't it? That was utter crap, and neither of them sang it well.

I totally laughed to see all the dry ice around Adam during his first song. Overall, I think I have to give it to Adam. Kris has a nice voice and is a total cutie, but I don't think he should come out on top. Plus, he does this super annoying thing with his mouth when he sings.

It HAS to be Adam. I can't stand Kris' voice! When he sings I can't even figure out what the melody is supposed to be.

Those last songs were so bad I feel bad they had to sing them. *pukes*

I like Adam's drama. He's fun. My friend and I were howling. Did you read this Rolling Stone piece?

How Adam Lambert Single-Handedly Saved “American Idol” : Rolling Stone : Rock and Roll Daily
Quote:
He’s easily the most fun Idol ever, a flam-bam-boyantly queeny California boy who has devoted his nights to making Midwestern housewives slobber into their tubs of Ben & Jerry’s Karamel Sutra. Whether he’s slutting up a rocker like “Born to Be Wild” (”wiii-eeee-iiyaaaiild!”) or sobbing his way through “Mad World,” he oozes pure awesome-stosterone.

... Glambert plays off the new gay stereotype that has been reality TV’s gift to our culture: the hyperfunctional gay dude who has his shit together in contrast to all the neurotic, insecure straight guys around him. He reverses the joke from Mean Girls — he’s too gay not to function. Somewhere along the line, this has become an iconic gay image in the mainstream — seen more recently in I Love You, Man, where the only person with any confidence is the gay Andy Samberg character, who gets to be strong while all the straight boys are sulky little bitches. …
