Kris Allen rocks American Idol, not “Falling Slowly” anytime soon.
Posted April 18, 2009on:
The Final 7 results of American Idol saw Kris Allen’s brilliant performance transforming him from a ‘cute looker’ participant to almost a second favorite to win this season’s American Idol. The bookies, namely William Hill, have Kris Allen down to 6/1 whilst Danny Gokey is 4/1 with a couple of the bookies. Even American Idol David Cook has singled out Adam Lambert and Kris Allen as his favorites this year.
Kris performed “Falling Slowly” from the soundtrack of the movie “Once”. The song was the 2007 Academy-Award winner for Best Original Song, composed by professional partners Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova.
On the results show, Kris stood with Lil Rounds, while Ryan announced one of them was in the bottom three. I felt kinda silly to feel tense ’cause i knew Lil Rounds had the worst night amongst everyone so she had to be the one to be in danger and as expected, she was. What was not expected and very surprising was Simon Cowell when he said that he did not get to comment last night but “Kris, you were brilliant”. Coming from Simon, I’m sure the weeks to come would see Kris Allen slipping past Danny Gokey to set up a finale with Adam Lambert, who i must say is worthy to win so far. I think the Season 8 heartthrob is just about to bring his best his best to the show in the coming weeks.
As expected, the Oscar winning song has become the latest craze for music lovers.It is currently at the 29th most downloaded song on iTunes. After Kris’ performance, millions of fans swarmed the internet for lyrics and details of “Falling Slowly“.
Do you think Kris has got what it takes to go all the way? Leave me your opinions below…
