Adam V. Kris in the Idol Finale

It's Adam Lambert versus Kris Allen for the "American Idol" finale.

Allen looked like he had been punched in the stomach when his name was announced as one of the contenders.

Kara DioGuardi looked forlorn when Danny Gokey's name was read as the one going home, and Paula Abdul cried as he sang.

Ryan Seacrest says 88 million votes were cast and only one million votes separated the top two.

Simon Cowell says, "This could be what we call a big ding-dong coming up the next week."

What the El!?! Editorial:

I have to wonder if Simon knows that these sort of predictions don't make sense to Americans.

I think what he's saying is Adam will win.

It'll be interesting, we may not want Adam to win, so that he can go the way of Chris Daughtry and have the career we want him to have instead of the career Idol would force him to have.

Seems like the folks who aren't tied up with Idol get their albums out faster, if Adam wins, ( which I think he should) I hope they get his album out fast, strike while the iron is hot as they say.
