I thought this last week during the Top 7 performances and it was echoed by Randy last night...Best final 7 in AI, ever...Extremely strong group of finalists...They each have their own style etc. and each are likely to have large followings of fans.
Bottom 2 among a strong 7, for me, would be Anoop & Lil.
Strong performances all around, really solid night, IMHO...Everyone could nearly make a case for being the best.
Kris Allen may not win but I realized last night that he's going to be one to watch in the future...Just super super super talented kid and as a fan of music, he's someone I will definitely get behind and be a fan of...Someone with more than just a voice but is truly an artist...Fewer and fewer artists out there...You know, those artists that you know whatever they put out, it's got 110% of their efforts and will not be some carbon copy of something you've heard before...That's Kris Allen for me...I'm going to listen to whatever he has to sing...Great stuff...THIS, for me, is what AI is about
