Kris Allen - Part 2
I knew there would be backlash. Why did Kris win instead of Adam? Look, it's simple math and I can only do simple math! The top 3 were Adam, Danny and Kris. Once Danny was voted off the Gokey factor went into affect. C'mon, fans of Danny weren't going to run over and vote for Adam. Now, if the top 3 were Adam, Allison and Kris, then Adam would've won.
I can't post the actually video performance, but Kris won with his performance of "Heartless." Think about it. This performance was a bigger risk than Adam ever took. Cute little white boy pulling off a Kayne West song and sounding totally believable with lines like, "I've got my homies." That night he sealed his fate as the next "American Idol."
In the finale, Adam sang three songs. Kris sang three songs and played guitar AND piano. So give credit where it's due. Maybe he wasn't your pick, but Kris is a talented guy who was just himself week after week, and I for one, am glad to see it paid off.
