With more than 88 million votes cast, and less than one million votes separating first and second place, the smart money remains on Adam Lambert and Danny Gokey to make the finals of the eighth season of American Idol. But is one of AI's surprise results shows in store for us tonight? The Ford Music video was Matthew Wilder's "Break My Stride", with graphics reminiscent of A-Ha's "Take On Me". Visually interesting, but musically boring. Wait? No group song? It's going to be a better night than I expected.
The final three contestants on American Idol season 8 performed two songs tonight. The first was a pick by the judges, and then they picked one of their own. None of my suggestions/predictions from the weekend were even in the right ballpark, so we're going to pretend that those never happened.
