Me personally, I loved Kris Allen's version of "Heartless." At first, I felt that Kanye's version threw me off for a loop because of its arrangement. However, if the song is arranged well, then it becomes a real hit. I really listening to Kanye's music (think "Stronger"). That said, Kris Allen made it to the finals because his acoustic take on the song was his trump card and was well-played. I really miss Danny Gokey and his awesome vocals. But I look forward to the finals.
To the Kanye West fans, I am sorry. But it is my opinion, so feel free to unleash whatever hate you may have for my opinion.
