What a great finale for American Idol tonight! Both Adam Lambert and Kris Allen delivered fab performances…but each of their weakest songs (of three) was the cheesy, mandatory Idol anthem of overcoming- this year penned by judge Kara Dioguardi and some of her BFF’s. “No Boundaries” makes “This is my Now” sound like a masterpiece. Neither Adam or Kris, as wildly talented as they are, could make K-Dig’s tune sound like anything other than a hot mess. Simon was quietly horrified. It will not be a top iTunes download. Trust.
It will be a huge conclusion tonight when the winner is crowned. Snarkista, as you know, has been an Adam Lambert fan from the word GO. Kris Allen, however, is wildly talented too- he plays several instruments and has a great sound and presence. Way back in the season, one of the judges pointed out that Kris was the guy who would help other contestants with their arrangements.
It is really too tough to call. One thing’s for sure, they’re both gonna be big stars! Good luck to Adam and Kris. You both deserve to be there.
