American Idol: A Two-Man Race?

by at . Comments

Is American Idol already a two-man race?

Last season, it wasn't too far into the finals when it became clear that David Cook and David Archuleta would be the pair to beat.

Similarly, two singers stood out - way, way out - over the others on last night's opening set of finalist auditions:

  1. Adam Lambert turned the Michael Jackson song "Black and White" into a theatrical event that caused Paula Abdul to cry, Kara DioGuardi to say he hit notes she never knew even existed, and even Simon Cowell to acknowledge he was in his own league. Dude has serious confidence and talent.
  2. Danny Gokey brought the crowd to its feet with a version of "PYT." Cowell said the vocals were “brilliant,” while the dance moves were ludicrous. Abdul already anointed him an almost-winner, saying: “I think you’re on the way to the finals.”

Your American Idol Top Two? Who is your favorite so far: Adam Lambert or Danny Gokey?

It's still early in the competition, of course. What singers might give Lambert and Gokey a run for their crooning money?

Lil Rounds didn't disappoint with a rendition of "The Way You Make Me Feel." We also loved Matt Giraud at the piano and Kris Allen on the guitar.

I absolutely love them both. They are both my favorites and have always been since the audition. I would probably more want Adam because I think he has all the qualities an American Idol should have. youtube.com/user/IdolAdamLambe... Check it out. Adam fans, SUBSCRIBE!

Adam has the "it" factor as Simon calls it....He is the whole package and then some and a great singer and entertainer....I have watched every season of idol and no guy has had the talent that Adam has....
Danny isn't even in the same catagory...I would not buy one of his cd's or go to one of his concerts...I am going with my daughter to see the idol show this year just because of Adam..never been before..

Adam Lambert really has 0 competition this year. I think Danny Gokey is totally overrated. I must be missing something, but to me he is boring. Adam has it all, looks,charisma and talent. Hope he goes all the way.

ADAM ALL THE WAY BABY!!! He better WINNNNN!!! OR I will never watch American Idol again!!! Adam's vocal talent and range are "Out of this world" and in Idol there has never been any like him...never. I will be so disappointed if he doesn't win. He outshines all the other contestants. Let's be honest here without playing favorites, based on the criteria of a great singer...Adam should already win and the others should pack their bags!!!
