The ‘American Idol’ final is set.
One of the final two spots, not surprisingly, was won by Adam Lambert. Despite falling into the bottom two once, Adam has been considered the clear favorite all season. But, in what should be considered an upset, Kris Allen beat out Danny Gokey for other spot in the final. That means Danny was sent home after having never finished in the bottom three all season.
Danny sang his send-off song, “You Are So Beautiful,” as the credits rolled on his time on the show, while Adam and Kris celebrated the fact that they’ll be squaring off for the title next week.
Asked to give a prediction on the final, judge Simon Cowell, said Kris’ second song on Tuesday night made him a real contender and he told Kris, “you’re in with a real shot.”
Then he told Adam, “You know we’ve always liked you, but this could be what we call a big ding dong coming up next week.”
What that means isn’t entirely clear. But we’ll all be sure to tune in and find out.
