Gay Adam Lambert and cute-enough-to-be-gay Kris Allen both performed three songs tonight: Adam sang “Mad World,” “Change is Gonna Come” and the appalling dumb song written by judge Kara DioGuard, “No Boundaries”i; then Kris did “Ain’t No Sunshine,” “What’s Goin’ On?” and Kara’s musical abortion.Â
Adam deserves to win the season overall, especially because the best performance of the night was his gospel-glam version of Sam Cooke â€” a quatum leap above Kris’ too-frothy-to-understand-the-meaning-behind-the-lyrics version of Marvin Gaye. But Kris probably did the superior version of the final song. Still, I’m going with Adam. Any thoughts?
