Adam and Kris for the Finals on American Idol Season 8

Adam Lambert and Kris Allen remains in-tact for the Top 2 on American Idols Season 8. Danny Gokey who has never been to the bottom three was voted off and gained the lowest of the 88 million votes.

Randy Jackson and Kara DioGuardi chose One Republic’s "Apologize" for Kris Allen, but seemed not to gain favor for the judges. The "Season's Dark Horse" as the judges call him bounced back with his very good interpretation of "Heartless" by Kanye West as his own choice, for which he accompanied himself on the guitar. Judge Randy Jackson even declared that Allen’s performance was "better than the original" and Simon Cowell said it made him into a contender.

Adam Lambert on his trademark rock performance made his own choice of "Crying" by Aerosmith and Simon's choice of "One" by U2. Simon said he deserved America’s votes because he showed real talent.

Danny Gokey was given "Dance Little Sister" by Terence Trent D'Arby from Paula Abdul. The judges thought the song choice was good for him but weren’t that impressed with the performance especially with his dancing which Kara said is a little "desperate". He also bounced back with his personal choice – Joe Croker's "You are So Beautiful". Simon called it a "vocal master class".

Kris Allen was the first to be called safe maybe due to his performance of "Heartless" that saved him. Second to be called is Adam Lambert who is also a bit nervous not making it to the finals. Danny was eliminated.
