Adam V. Kris

It's showdown time tonight as the two best singers in this season of Idol face off.  Due to work obligations, I am going to keep this short and sweet.  We've over analysed these two for weeks now and I still think Adam is the class of the competition.  However... I have soured on him a bit in the past few weeks as his delivery is starting to become very repetitive (when was the last time he sang a song without sticking out his tongue and belting an overly obnoxious high note?).  Kris just continues to re-invent himself each week and his turn on Kanye's Heartless in the Final Three was perhaps his most original effort yet.  I think the rise of Kris will make the finals a lot closer than people are anticipating.  I also think the vote will be pretty close in case of a gay backlash against Lambert.  

In the end though, I am predicting that Adam wins in a squeaker but both of these two will be big hits on iTunes for years to come.

That's really all I have to say. I am a big dork.

I kept expecting more gay backlash of Adam as the weeks passed but I don't think it has really had that much of an impact because it is tweens (mostly girls) voting. I've been surprised that he has kept the humble schtick going - Kris's seems more genuine. I think Kris would be better for the Idol brand but that Adam will win. Of course last year I thought Cook should win but predicted David A would win and I was WRONG.

I'm with you - I was really hot on Adam at first, but he has become a bit of a one-note wonder. Great skills, but it's starting to sound a little screechy to me. Chris has had some really great moments this season, he could be the sleeper winner!
