American Idol Final-Kris vs Adam

Well tonight did not disappoint. I love that they get to pick their favorite song because I think it is the fairest way to see how each really is as an artist. Adam did a nice job with Mad World, but I think his middle song was his best. I think Kris killed the first two songs. I can totally picture myself outside on the patio on a summer night with Kris's version of "What's Goin' On" playing in the background. How can you even compare the artistic ability of Kris to change a song so creatively and deliver such a powerful performance. Adam has the ability to perform but I find him not very creative(smoke and long coats are nothing new) and I would not buy an album from him ever!! Regarding the cheesy last song, what are they thinking. Other then Kelly Clarkson's "A moment like this", I have no desire to hear those songs again. They could have picked a totally current hip song to create and instead create a lame song about mountains and hurricanes. Kris doesn't need a cheesy, emotional song to be inspirational. His whole journey and what he is able to do is inspirational in itself. Now it is up to American to vote, I voted for Kris and the lines were busier than last week. I can truly say though that win or lose I will be buying Kris Allen's first record, it is going to be awesome if they let him do what he does best.

I think you hit the nail on the had. Adam is a good singer, but Kris is a better musician.

At this point, cheesy is too nice of a word. I'd rather Kris win than Adam now.

The fact that whoever wins (hopefully Kris) has to release that awful song as their first single really depresses me. Like you, I'd much rather hear some great pop song than that "uplifting" song they tried to create.
