It's Adam Lambert and Kris Allen in the American Idol Finale this coming Tuesday and Wednesday nights.
Remarkably, Lambert's odds haven't moved much from -250, where they peaked a few weeks ago. One would have to bet $2.50 to win $1.00 (you would receive the $2.50 back plus the $1.00 only if Lambert wins). Kris Allen would pay out almost $2 for every $1 bet.
Danny Gokey, the original favorite, was voted off Wednesday night. He has never appeared in the bottom three.
Gokey had continually impressed the judges with his husky voice - but not his hip shaking - throughout the contest. "Idol" judge Simon Cowell called his cover of Joe Cocker's version of "You Are So Beautiful" on Tuesday a "vocal master class" but said his dancing during Terence Trent D'Arby's "Dance Little Sister" was "desperate."
Either Lambert, a 27-year-old theater actor from San Diego, or Allen, a 23-year-old college student from Conway, Ark., will be crowned "Idol" next Wednesday. Cowell said Allen's totally stripped-down version of Kanye West's "Heartless" on Tuesday made him a contender for the finale.
