Who Do You Want To See Win American Idol?

by Erica

As you may recall, I have been a bit more attached to American Idol this season, since I took part in a portion of the audition process.

I faithfully watched all season long, and was saddened when one of my favorites, Allison, didn’t make it into the top three. But, I have been a huge fan of Kris, since day one, and was thrilled to see him make it into the final two.

Did you watch the final showdown last night?

I have been blown away by Adam’s talent in the past, but last night, I am not sure if he wowed me.

As far as Kris goes, I admit, I just might have a little crush on Kris Allen, and I had chills when he sang, “Ain’t No Sunshine”.

While I have a feeling that Adam will win it, I would really love to see Kris announced as season eight’s American Idol!

So, inquiring minds want to know, who are YOU rooting for to win?

Okay, so I’m a Canadian and can’t vote, and though Adam seems to have been the favourite all along and he’s practically expected to win, I’m hoping Kris wins! He was awesome last night. I love that he’s so modest and genuine, he pulled out the piano, the guitar and he did a better job with that single for sure! We’ll find out tonight!!

a million times over i hope kris wins! i’ve been rooting for him since day one, and i CANNOT stand adam’s screeching voice (or his stage presence, really).

can’t wait!

With Danny Gokey out of the picture, my vote goes for Kris! I think alot of Gokey fans will make the switch, possibly giving the win to Kris. We’ll have to wait and see.

I love Kris, but Adam deserves the win.

Kris, Kris, Kris, Kris! lol By the way, I’d like for Kris to win. ;)

I think Adam has more STAR quality. Kris is cool, but Adam rocks the stage!

okay… so I’ve always loved Kris, but i have to be honest, Adam was so intriguing to me. The first half he was amazing…there were some weird “theatrical” things i HATED, but over all, we can’t deny the guy can sing….but then he got all screechy and screamy and the whole tongue thing hanging out got weird too. So i’m going for Kris…. i think we’re going to see an “upset” tonight… I think Kris might pull it off! ♥

This has been an amazing season and anyone of them could have won and I wouldn’t have been disappointed, but I am hoping Adam will take home the title. He is in a league of his own!


9 Sarah May 20, 2009 at 12:49 pm

I wanted Danny Gokey to win but you see where he is now.

I don’t care which one win although I do like both of them. Adam is hot!

My dh and I don’t like Adam at all- the screaming drives us crazy. I think he’s very talented- when he’s not screaming. So we’re backing Kris. I voted several times, so we’ll see!

Otherwise, I was a Gokey girl.

Kris, Kris, Kris, Kris. Did I mention I want Kris to win? I think I have a little mini crush on him, too! I really hope there is an Idol “upset” tonight and Kris takes the prize. I think everyone is so SURE that Adam will win, that it might do Adam’s ego a little good to have that slap in the face.

Don’t get me wrong – they are both great artists and will both have amazing careers no matter what tonight’s outcome. However, when the “underdog” wins – it makes it all the more sweeter, to me.

As far as “star” quality – I think Kris has all the star quality he needs to make it in this industry. Adam has the “stage” background, which only makes him more confident – not necessarily a star…..in my humble opinion!

GO KRIS!!!!!!!

I have to say that Adam is the most talented. He never hits a wrong note and has unbelievable stage presence.

But I’d love to see Kris pull it off. His style is totally different and he may not have the theatrical impact of Adam, but I think he’ll make an awesome album.


13 Tricia May 20, 2009 at 1:52 pm

KRIS KRIS KRIS all the way. He’s such a cutie


14 Susan May 20, 2009 at 2:28 pm

Like many others, I wanted Danny Gokey to win and was disappointed when he was eliminated. Now my vote goes wholeheartedly with Kris!
I agree that Adam is an amazingly talented guy but I would not buy his album…too much screaming and screeching for me. Not to mention that I think his stage presence lends itself better to a Vegas type act than a touring act.

SO, I hope to see a huge KRIS victory tonight. I agree with one of the other commenters that he could certainly pull it off since most the Danny Gokey fans likely switched over and became Kris fans rather than Adam fans.

Go Kris!!!!

This is actually the very first season that I have NOT been glued to the tv every Tuesday and Wednesday. Having Li’l Empress home and doing her bedtime routine has taken precedence :)

But we have watched the last two weeks. Sad to see Danny go, but I have a feeling God’s got good things in store for him. It was nice to hear a competitor be so mature and have integrity.

That’s also how we feel about Kris, now. He’s so normal and humble. Here’s hoping for a big upset. What a twist that would be!


16 Beth May 20, 2009 at 4:19 pm

I think I will be happy whoever wins, I like them both. I feel Adam is more talented, and sticks out more, so I think he will have a career regardless if he wins or no. So I almost want Kris to win, so I know I will see more of him, because I am not sure we would if he lost. Does that make sense?


17 Shannon May 20, 2009 at 7:24 pm

I was pulling for Danny, but with him is gone, I am team Adam. Kris is incredibly boring, nothing exciting about him!


18 Kristin May 20, 2009 at 10:20 pm

OK, the show is over now- but I wanted Adam to win. I think Kris is preyyt hot but Adam was the better singer, my opinion!!


19 nell May 21, 2009 at 4:38 pm

I’ve been in Adam’s corner since day one, and he should have won, but didn’t…and really, he probably is the winner since he isn’t strapped down to the AI contracts. He’ll likely be able to shop around and get the best deal now, with more creative control.
