Kris VS Adam: The Face-Off

The votes have been cast and the competition had come down to the final two – Kris Allen, the underdog, and Adam Lambert, the drag queen. LOL. Seriously, I don’t think there’s any competition tougher than this (maybe even tougher than the Davids’ duel). So who do I think has the upper hand? Here’s my head-to-head match-up of the two:

STRENGTHS: undoubtedly the best vocalist and the most confident performer on stage. Years of experience in the theater made him a seasoned talent on stage that he can eat Kris alive once he steps on the platform. He can interpret songs with authority and are uniquely Adam. He has had some of the best moments in the season, which includes Simon giving him an unexpected standing O. And he has this charisma that endears him to the viewers, making it easy for him to dig up throngs of fans.
WEAKNESSES: Weeks of watching him do the stuff he does make him predictable and almost boring. Sometimes unpredictability is so predictable, especially for him. Personally, I’m not a fan of his genre. I don’t think it’s marketable enough to make him last in the business. Besides, I’m not sure if I can last listening to his ear-splitting future album. And read: THEATRICAL. Which is quite unusual, seeing a ‘rock god’ (and I quote Kara) performing that way on stage.

STRENGTHS: Let’s go with the evident – good-looking. It’s obviously the first thing that people noticed and liked about him. He’s very cool to watch on stage; he quickly developed his confidence on the course of the competition. Like Adam, he’s had some of the best moments in the season, thanks to his genuine ad brilliant song interpretations (Heartless remians the best, so far). His big advantage is that his sound is much more relevant and marketable, which I think is more appealing to the younger viewers.
WEAKNESSES: comparing to Adam’s strengths, he’s a mere second placer.

At first, it’s painless to say that Adam is the top dog coming into the finale. But the show’s too fickle to be predictable. Anything could happen. A big part of the results will depend on the comments of Simon (admit it, he’s always right). Either he’ll pimp Adam up or use reverse psychology like he did to Cook. There’s also a big possibility that Gokey’s equally large fan base would start supporting Kris. And common, only one million votes separate the two. How exciting could that be?

And yes, my Nostradamic powers proved me right once again as two of my predictions came true: First, that the winner will be a guy (biologically speaking, he-he), and his name will start with the letter ‘A’ (Adam or Allen). Humirit pa talaga ako.

I'm glad Kris landed at the Top 2. He actually deserves it. Really rooting for tukayo.

Adam is the better singer, ngayon lang ako nakakita ng lalaking hanep bumirit. Pero sana manalo si Kris hehehe.

Badong said...

Adam is really my first bet. Kaso medyo nagsawa na ko sa style niya. If he wins, ok lang sakin. If kris does, it will be an upset pero ok lang din. Season 7 pa rin ako.
