Is anybody changing your mind on American Idol?

Kris AllenFor the most part, people tend to make their picks for who should win American Idol pretty early on. And for now the odds-on favorite remains Adam Lambert. Last night Simon told Kris that he'd all but written him off for the finale, but after his second performance he'd put himself right back into the thick of things. It's hard to argue that all three of these finalists are amazing talents. But has anyone done anything to make you change your mind about who should go to the finals or possibly even win the whole thing?

We've been building to a Danny/Adam finale pretty much since the beginning. Kris though, Kris kind of came out of nowhere early on, and I think he blew the other two boys away last night. Yes, I know Adam fans think he was amazing, but he again worked his patented "rock scream" into both songs and it didn't belong in either, particularly "One." Danny opened disastrously before redeeming himself, but Kris had that something special in both songs. Is it even possible to change people's minds at this point?

Well here's a NO BRAINER comment...regardless if Adam wins or not, YA KNOW A RECORD DEALS ALREADY IN THE WORKS. I hope those who are watching A.I. will vote for KRIS, give it up for 'THE UNDERDOG THIS TIME".

Just wanted to say America got this right. Adam was always going to be in the finals, but I was afraid American was actually going to put Danny in there as well.

Thank goodness Kris Allen broke up the insanely preordained final two of Adam/Danny. GO KRIS! Now on to the win you darkhorse you.

88 million votes and the margin between Kris & Adam is 1 million.

You gotta think Danny got at least 25 million of those votes.

All Kris has to do is win over 55% of those voters.

I think he's got a real shot. I just don't think Danny voters will vote for Adam.

Adam can only sing his genre...ROCK... the scream and the lizard tongue turn me off even with the great vocals.
Having said that... Danny was WAY better than Chris.. Chris 's vocals are no where as good as Danny..Ilike Chris and Adam but would come closer to buying a Danny CD.

I have no idea how Kris got where he is. He is so boring he puts me to sleep. He acts like he's bored with us as well. I want to smack him awake. And if he smacks his lips one more time, I will put my fist through my own TV.

A lot of singers went home who should be ahead of Kris. One of them is Danny.

You asked for opinions.

I still don't understand what anyone liked about either Danny's bland singing or his geeky stage presence. I certainly never considered him a candidate for the finals.

We all knew Adam would be in the finals, cause Simon wanted him there from the start. We also know the sometimes it's better to be the runner up..........remember Ruben and Clay? Where is Ruben now? I say go Danny!
