Adam Lambert may have sealed his chances of getting into the American Idol final after this past week's performance.  Oddsmakers at Sportsbook.com have responded by making Lambert a -400 favorite to become the next American Idol.  One would have to bet $4 to win $1 (the initial $4 is returned if Lambert wins). 

From MTV.com:

What would Adam Lambert pull off this week? Dressed conservatively in a black suit and black tie and with his jet-black hair pushed up into a pompadour, this year's breakout singer took on Yvonne Elliman's "If I Can't Have You," turning the Bee Gees-penned dance tune into a slow, sensual ballad full of heartache and longing (and a few of his jet-scream wails).

"You are ready right now!" Randy huffed, giving stage veteran Lambert props for mixing it up every week and showing the judges and audience so many different musical looks. "Adam, you're brilliant," Kara added. Calling the emotion he put into the song inspiring, Paula was again near tears, applauding his decision to avoid cliché.

"I felt your pain; I felt your vulnerability, which was beautiful," she said. "It's as if you tore your heart out and left it on the stage. You're fascination, you're brilliant, you're awesome, and you will be in the finals." Simon couldn't quite feel the pain, but was stunned by the one-of-a-kind, memorable arrangement and "immaculate" vocals. And, once again showing his class and professionalism, Lambert praised the collaborator who helped him come up with the arrangement.
