Poll of the Day: Do You Think America Got it Right on American Idol?

I haven’t seen quite the outrage I was expecting upon Adam Lambert taking the runner-up spot, but maybe people have just realized that second place can easily be as successful as the winner.  It’s all about singing and entertaining when it comes down to selling CDs.  Vote below in today’s poll of the day:

American Idol Finale Performances Recap

This….. is…… American Idol!  Sorry, I had to.  I hadn’t done that yet this season I don’t think.  Anyway, Season 8 comes down to this, the final six competition performances of the year.  I’m sure it’ll be epic.  Hmm.

Ryan reminds us to all fix our DVRs for the finale runover, but I will predict now that millions of people will still flock to message boards to complain.  First up is…

Adam Lambert singing “Mad World” by Tears for Fears for his re-do performance.  What’s up with the cape, man?  Haha, and the dramatic fog screens going across the floor?  This is over the top without even trying to be.  But in all seriousness, this is good.  I think it’s better than the first time he did it overall.  There aren’t any small bum notes anywhere, which is always a plus.  I’m not seeing the big twist that we heard he was going to do, but it was still good.  Not your typical Adam Lambert here.  Randy gave it an A+ and loved the fog machines, Kara said he is an incredible artist, Paula told him to bask in it, and Simon thought it was over theatrical like Phantom of the Opera.  Next up is…

Kris Allen singing “Ain’t No Sunshine” by Bill Withers for his re-do performance.  Kris has really nice parents, I really like them.  I will probably miss them more than anyone this season, except for Allison.  And Meghan.  So nevermind.  Anyway, this has been one of my favorite performances from Kris this year, so I’m glad he went with this one.  It’s more understated than his other two, so it’ll be good to bring it back to the fore front.  Great performance.  This is more my kind of thing.  Really good ending, too.  Randy thought it was one of his best ever, Kara complicated his ability to make an intimate bond, Paula says something about “Allenizing” things, and Simon said he had doubted America’s choice last week, but now he takes it all back.

I’d have to give that round to Kris, and Simon agrees with me.  I always knew Simon knew what he was talking about.

Adam Lambert singing “A Change is Gonna Come” by Patti LaBelle and Sam Cook for Simon Fuller’s choice.  Wow, this is really good, I’ve gotta say.  He’s hitting some big ole notes as usual, but it seems to work well for this song.  I enjoyed this much more than the first one.  It’s one of my favorite Adam performances of the year for sure.  There’s more substance to it than usual screech fest.  The judges pretty much all thought that it was his best ever, and Simon said he was definitely back in the game.  Next up is…

Kris Allen singing “What’s Going On” by Marvin Gaye for Simon Fuller’s choice.  This is very Kris Allen, to quote Paula.  A very cool pop sound to this one, which is definitely what he should go with after Idol.  I think this performance is proof that he has the most potential radio success after Idol from anyone this season.  It’s not his best, but I could imagine hearing it on the radio.  Randy thought it was a little light for him, Kara like the song choice and thought he delivered a message, Paula thought he “tore it up” and made Marvin Gaye proud, and Simon thought it was like 3 friends in a bedroom strumming along to Marvin Gaye and too laid back for a finale.

Simon gave that round a million percent to Adam.  I think it goes to Adam as well, but not by a million percent.

Oh great, now the epic coronation song is up.  I can’t wait to see that one.  Not.

Adam Lambert singing “No Boundaries”, this year’s coronation song written by Kara DioGuardi.  This song typical Idol cheese, limburger to be exact.  He’s doing a great job vocally, though it gets a little shouty in the end.  Not typical Adam “screech” just shouty.  This song is going to kill Kris unless they allowed them to change it up.  Good vocal for Adam, though not the most captivating performance.  Randy thought it was pitchy, Kara gave herself a shout out for writing it (Come on Kara), Paula will forever be his fan, and Simon made fun of the song, but said Adam has been one of the best and most original ever.  Next up is…

Kris Allen singing “No Boundaries” as well.  Unless Kris can change it up it’s going to kill him.  Well, the beginning was really good!  In the middle it kind of fell a part a bit, but he got it back together.  I actually really liked that.  The song didn’t kill him like I thought it would.  Adam’s always got him beat as far as range and ability, but Kris knows what he can do and does it really well.  Randy thought the key was high, but said he was amazing; Kara said he is a compelling artist and incredible person; Paula said he’s done an amazing job this season and deserved every bit of it; and Simon said the first was his best, but watching him as been incredible because he has improved so much.

Now the real reason everyone’s watching American Idol tonight…

Carrie Underwood singing the good-bye song “Home Sweet Home”.  Carrie’s looking great back on the Idol stage!  Great performance of “Home Sweet Home” by Carrie.  I think this just proves that she is the greatest winner of American Idol.  She is one of the only people that actually sound better live than in the studio.  I will always be a fan.  I give the night to Carrie Underwood!

What did you think of tonight’s show?  Who do you think will be winning tomorrow night?
