Kris Allen is "Heartless," Incredible

by at . Comments

Wow.

We'll publish a detailed recap of the final three performance show on American Idol tomorrow, but we couldn't wait another second to shower praise on one of tonight's performances.

And it wasn't given by Adam Lambert for a change!

Kris Allen delivered the goods - and then some! - with an acoustic rendition of "Heartless." Sorry, Gokeheads. But next week's finale has to come down to Allen vs. Lambert.

Watch Allen's rendition of "Heartless" below and share your thoughts in the Comments section:

I don't get it. I'm not wowed by Heartless or any song Kris has performed to date. He leaves me cold. Adam is a brilliant performer, but his falsetto irritates. Danny was my favorite. I found his voice to be authentic, heartfelt, and gravelly. The judges pushed Adam, reviewing every performance as stellar. Let's be real. For that reason, I was glad Kris won. But Danny is my American Idol.

The Fray - Heartless (Cover) is better!

You failed to mention that Kris' covered The Fray's version of Heartless. It was nice but the artist credit is going to the wrong person. I like Kris but I am disappointed that once again he is not crediting the source of his arrangement. Adam has gone out of his way to credit inspirations for his performance. For example, he specifically called he "Feeling Good" the Muse Version. As far as I can tell Kris has one brilliant original arrangement, "Ain't No Sunshine", but I am less sure now that it is original. I have been told that the version he played has been around the mid-South for years.

Kris is and has been the stand out for me the whole season.
In my mind - truly the only original talent. I agree the Perry girl showed no class with the cape and I thought vocally she was awful!

Kris was amazing--the Judges were Heartless in their treatment of him following the announcement of the final 2-they were just rude.--also, the singer who had Adam's name on her cape should be added not only to the Heartless list but also the tasteless list. Kris showed class as well as good taste in his graceous stage presence.

I absolutely LOVED this performance! I think it's my favorite of the whole season! I'm so happy for Kris, always being in the shadow of Adam and Danny. I just wish the judges would praise him more.

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
