American Idol: A Three-Man Race?

by at . Comments

Adam Lambert is going to win American Idol.

The singer is simply too talented and too original to be denied, at least we hope that's the case.

But Lambert - who was his typical, fresh, fun, outstanding self last night during a performance of "Play That Funky Music" - will receive some competition from the two men that also stood out this week. They were:

  • Danny Gokey sang "What Hurts the Most" by Rascal Flatts and Simon said it was his best audition of the season. The crooner borders on cheesy, but give him credit for singing with passion during every rendition.
  • Kris Allen continues to build momentum. His unique arrangement of "Ain't No Sunshine" earned three words of praise from Kara: "That is artistry!"

Still, the night belonged to Lambert, as always. Don't you agree?
