Emotion Idol Results Show Sets Up a ‘Ding Dong’ Finale

A close race and visits home make the Top 3 American Idol results show a very emotional one.  And with only a million votes separating the Final 2, you can bet that next week’s finale will be an exciting one.

And after 88 million votes, it’s going to be Kris Allen and Adam Lambert in the finale.  Personally, I think this pairing will make for the better finale.  But given the looks on the judges’ face, I’d say they were expecting to see Danny Gokey next week.

According to Simon, the finale should be a “ding dong” of an affair.  Without making us consult our British-to-English dictionaries, Simon informed us that it was a good thing.

However, before we got to any results, we got to see footage of each of the Top 3’s visits to their hometown.  I don’t know what it is about this part, but I always get teary eyed when I watch the contenders deal with their new found fame at home.

I know we only saw clips, but it sure looked like Kris worked the hardest on his visit home.  Is it me, or did the guy sing everywhere he went.  And I loved the footage of Adam with the children’s theatre group.

The hour was so jammed pack with guests and visits that the traditional group number was skipped this week.  After the Ford video to “Break My Stride” where the guys got to embrace their comic self, Alicia Keys, the global ambassador for Keep a Child Alive, appeared to introduce Noah from Kigali.  Noah was asked to singing “I’m the World’s Greatest” on Idol by Simon after the two met at KCA’s Black Ball in New York.

Then Season 6 winner Jordin Sparks returned to the Idol stage to sing “Battlefield.”  It doesn’t seem like it’s been two years since Jordin was awaiting her fate on the stage.  I thought she looked beautiful and sounded great.  But I have to wonder if she was in this year’s pool of contestants, would she still have won?

And finally we heard Katy Perry singing her new single, “Waking Up in Vegas.”  This performance is my first exposure to the colorful singer and I didn’t think it was half bad.  And judging from her cape, she’s an Adam fan. 

I’ll be pulling for Kris next week, but regardless of who wins we should be in store for one spectacular show.
