The last time I blogged  about  American Idol was when David Cook got the crown, so to speak.  It was David Cook all the way during Season 7.  Wow, now both Davids are here, what a thrill!  But if you ask me, no matter how I admire the two, I won’t  even attempt to watch their one-night concert at SM Mall of Asia.  I am not that nimble enough to mingle with the anticipated huge crowd who will be watching the concert.

I watched David Archuleta on SIS this morning, he really brought the house down. He was a darling and so generous with his praises of the Filipino singers (GMA talents) who interpreted some of his songs during the program.  He described the singers as “perfectly harmonized”. And he loves mangoes. SIS gifted him with a barong Tagalog designed by Pepsi Herrera. He was also given a miniature Filipino symbols like an ice cream cart, a nipa hut inside a bottle and a jeepney(he even joked that he wanted to ride in one) and a small figure  dressed in barong Tagalog.

So Season 8 has finally reached the top two, with Adam Lambert and Kris Allen vying for the  American Idol crown. I haven’t been watching the show religiously but most of them are really, really talented artists.  I love the vocal range and style of Adam Lambert but Kris Allen’s version of Kanye West’s Heartless was totally amazing.  And if you ask me who will win in this season’s finale? It would be Adam Lambert, hands down.  I love Kris Allen though with his winning  smile and charming looks. Win or lose, the top two slots are assured of a bright future anyway, so it won’t affect me that much if Kris Allen goes off with the crown.  Who’s your bet?
