American Idol Season 8

After the American Idol Top 3 gave us judge’s choice and finalist choice, now it was the voters’ choice. Voters picked the 23-year-old Kris Allen and 27-year-old Adam Lambert.

Danny Gokey had been seen as a strong contender all along, and, had never wound up in the bottom three throughout the competition. The 29-year-old music teacher and church music director from Milwaukee, Wisconsin sang his unique rendition of the Joe Crocker You Are So Beautiful as the American Idol May 13 results night came to a conclusion.

Last week all finalists returned to their hometowns, as is the American Idol tradition, with video montage shown of each visit. Adam Lambert went to San Diego, California, Danny Gokey to Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Kris Allen to central Arkansas. You can see several articles and numerous video of these hometown visits here (scroll to the bottom of the page for links to the articles and video on Danny Gokey and Kris Allen).

Throughout the season we have seen many outstanding performances, notably Kris Allen (Ain’t No Sunshine), Danny Gokey (What Hurts The Most), and Adam Lambert (Wild Cherry, ‘Play that Funky Music’).

We have seen Allison Iraheta, Matt Giraud, Megan Joy, Michael Sarver, Alexis Grace, Jasmine Murray and Jorge Nunez sent home. In a double elimination night Lil Rounds and Anoop Desai went home.

Now Danny Gokey has left. We are down to the wire. Two finalists, Adam Lambert and Kris Allen and only one will be the season 8 American Idol.
