American Idol - the Finals

Well, its finally here - the last Idol performance night. Adam vs. Kris.

I'm kind of going to miss AI on Tuesday nights. But when I think back to when it started with the audition rounds back in January when we had piles and piles on snow on the ground, it seems like it's been on forever. Now that it's not dark, cold, and snowy every evening, I should be able to find something more constructive to do with my Tuesday nights!

Just a short commentary tonight . . .

I agree with BooMama (where you can find links to other AI blog commentaries if you so desire) that most everybody had already decided before the show whether they would vote for Kris or for Adam. So in some ways, tonight was a bit anti-climactic; no big surprises or new revelations. But still, some great performances.

If I were to declare a "winner" for each of the 3 rounds, as Simon did (for the first 2 rounds anyway), I would give Kris the 1st round and the 2nd round. And then, although I don't think either sounded that terribly fantastic with the "No Boundaries" finale song, I would give Kris the 3rd round too because he sang the kind-of-corny song better than Adam. If I could be more objective, I might say that Adam won the 2nd round (because he really did manage to sing almost that whole song well, without scaring me). But I'm obviously a Kris fan, and I think he was just awesome, and I give him all 3 rounds!

So, will Adam win, as all the hype would have you believe? Or will Kris gather up Danny's votes and pull out ahead of Adam? We shall see . . .

Woo-Hoo!!! Kris did win!!!
I am surprised, but very happy. I think he is a better all-around singer. Adam has a great voice, but just too screechy for me.
