Randy Jackson Predicts: Danny vs. Adam in American Idol Final

by at . Comments

When it comes to predicting the American Idol final pairing, Randy Jackson is going out on a limb shorter than Ryan Seacrest.

During an appearance at Amtrak’s National Train Day in Washington D.C. (seriously, it's a real thing!), the judge predicted next week's finale to come down to Danny Gokey and Adam Lambert.

“Adam Lambert is definitely the lead winner if we had to choose today. He’s got the vocal chops, he’s a good-looking guy like myself, and he’s got that star potential,” Jackson said. “I think it’s going to come down to him and Danny [Gokey] in the finale.”

Are you a Lambert Lover or a Goke Head?

As for rumors that fellow panelist Kara DioGuardi might not return to the judges’ table next season, Randy said:

“I think everybody will be back. I think you will see the returning cast.”

American Idol Finale: All the Performances!

American Idol crowned a winner last night. It also featured very many performances.


I love Adam Lambert--I freely admit it! I can hardly wait until he sings on Idol and will be despondent after he wins and we have to wait MONTHS before an album. I have no idea what kind of genre CD he will end up making as he can sing ANYTHING. I will be in line to purchase whatever he produces, however. GO ADAM!


Adam is AMAZING! I work for the VA and I am so proud that while Adam was home he went and performed for our troops and their families at Miramar. He went back and visited the children at the performing arts school where he performed as a child and visited at his high school with the drama and band students. These things speak to his character and have impressed me all season. I am voting for Adam as the next American Idol!
