I have never posted on this thread, but am an AI junkie. In the beginning I said it would be Danny and Adam. I have learned to LOVE Kris! He is an AI for me because I have watched him grow as a person and an artist. He has developed. We all know Danny and Adam can sing, but to watch the tranformation in Kris is the deal sealer for me!

I agree with one hand over my eye, but I think the short nature of these performances really do a disservice to songs like "one" that have much musical introduction and build up. I think he may have only watch the Mary J. part. He missed the subtle nature of the song. I am concerned........

I still think that Adam is very talented but he will struggle in the business. He killed both songs tonight and I don't see where he fits in to a musical genre. If I heard his 2 songs on the radio while in my car I would've driven as fast as possible into the nearest pole.
I think Kris reminds me of Darius, from Hootie and the BF!

Cult of Adam? thats interesting. Well big fans of Adam would of been more appropriate.....or you would of been ok with cougar mamas...lol. I guess we are followers...like a cult

.

He had enough magic to make me cry when he sang the song

Yes he has an amazing range and he loves the high notes and shows his range week after week, but I don't see that every song he sings sounds alike
Now Danny's songs all sound alike to me
Right on!

Ok here is my take.....
Danny just looks plain tired...I am sure he hears the death bells.
Simon gave Adam the "you are in" stamp when he told the nation that Bono personally approved Adam singing "One" Win or lose is absolutely a no brainer. He will have a heck of a career.
If Kris wins, good for him, he will need the AI machine to fluff and fold him. He will make a few good songs.

We all know deep down that Adam is so far ahead of AI standards. He is very demonstrative (is that a word?) when he sings, and he needs more than the 2 minutes or so they give.

Talk to ya tonight, no matter how it goes he looks great and sings great, I think he may have been preparing himself when he said he was glad to be in the other's company.

I started out a huge Adam fan but very quickly became a Kris fan.

I thought Adam's singing last night was horrendous. I agree he ruined One with his screeching. Honestly, it sounded like nails on a chalkboard. And then he did it AGAIN with his second song. The more I see of him, the less I like him.

I hope it comes down to Danny and Kris and Kris wins!!!

Ok...I'm to the point I don't want Adam to win.....the last few weeks have just about made me not care who wins at all.

Yes, Adam has a LOT of talent but I'm so over the judges kissing his behind.
The other are just as good but don't have the same stage presence.

I'll watch now out of curiosity but no longer care.

You're right...why does Simon in particular suck up to Adam?

I think Simon said what he said last night about Adam because he's worried about him tonight. I think Simon was trying to sway voters .....

I agree with everything you said here! 90 minutes is really really short to piece One together. I also don't think Adam is a lock for the finale. I'm hoping and I voted like a crazy person, but you just never know!! It's going to be a long results show tonight with me on pins and needles. LOL Kris deserves it. Danny should have gone home last week. But I belong 100% to the Cult of Adam. Take me to your leader.
