A face off between Adam Lambert and Kris Allen can be seen next week in the finale of ‘American Idol’s’ season 8. Danny Gokey, a contestant who had never been at the bottom of the votes, received the least amount of the 88 million votes from fans Tuesday night, in what many considered an upset.
Only 1 million votes stood between Lambert, who has been considered the favorite, and Allen, the dark horse of the season. The two contestants are closer to the likes of David Cook, the victor over last season, than previous ‘American Idol’ winners such as Taylor Hicks, Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, Fantasia, Ruben Suddard, and Jordin Sparks.
Many analysts of the show had Adam Lambert figured to be in the finale, and Simon Cowell, one of the judges for the show, was certain that the singer deserved to be in the finale last week. Cowell actually implored fans to vote for him instead of inferring that he would be safe to go on, so when Ryan Seacrest gave Kris Allen’s name as a finalist first, the audience was surprised.
However, at the sound of Lambert’s name soon after, the crowd erupted. Adam Lambert has revived interest in the contest single-handedly, as well as captured many American hearts.
Although the contestants have both won, making it through the season ’till the end, the battle has not ended. Lambert and Allen will each compete for the last time next week to be the the season 8 winner of American Idol.
