For week's now I've been considering who should really win American Idol: Adam Lambert or Kris Allen. After reading other people's assessments and much debating on my own, I've come to a few conclusions.
Adam Lambert has been the best contestant of the season. Let's face it, he made "American Idol" this year. Who did we talk about after every show? Who is the media's favorite? Whether you liked him or hated him, you could wait to see what he'd do next. And no contest, Adam Lambert had the best voice of the season.
Adam Lambert is who deserves to win "American Idol". He has the stage presence and is a born performer. See the description of Adam Lambert above. When he's on on stage, he reminds me of James Brown – he is the hardest working contestant on "American Idol".
Kris Allen is the best contestant to win "American Idol". Kris looks like a pop-star, he sounds like a pop-star, he smells like a pop-star. Maybe I'm not that sure on the third, but he is more marketable. Kris Allen's first album will sell more copies than Adam Lambert's.
Adam Lambert will win "American Idol". Adam's fan base is amazing…and crazy. They aren't going to let him lose. Right now their icing their poor fingers from all the texting and dialing they did last night.
So there you have it. Adam Lambert was the contestant of the season, deserves to win, and should win. But from a marketing standpoint, Kris Allen is the better choice to go with…for now. All in all, I think we'll all forget about Kris in about five years. What do you think?
Tune in 8-10PM ET on FOX for the season finale.
