Results: Danny voted off, American Idol final top 2
The weeks of drama on the 2009 American Idol are inching
closer to the end with the finale, after tonight's results were
announced, Danny was voted off, while Adam and Kris are going to
battle in the American Idol Final. With 88 million votes cast
tonight the final results of the American Idol top 3 put Danny Gokey on the short end - he was voted off to clear the way for
always-favorite Adam Lambert and Kris Allen to face off for the
2009 American Idol glory.
The Wednesday American Idol results did
come as a bit of a surprise for both critics and odds makers
alike. We have been following the odds on the 2009 American Idol
throughout the season as posted at the online bookmaker
Sports, and there was no surprise that Adam Lambert was favorite
to win the American Idol at 5/18, once again, before the results
were announced. But the underdog earlier today was Kris Allen,
who was sitting on long odds 5/1 to win the talent competition,
while Danny Gokey was holding better odds 4/1 to win the Idol.
Unfortunately for Danny, he did not find enough support in the
88 million votes cast tonight and the subsequent calculation of
the American Idol results - and was voted off.
Thus after the American Idol results
were announced tonight and now we know that Danny was voted off
the show, the final 2 on the Idol are Adam and Kris. And judging
from the odds from earlier today, Adam Lambert is likely to come
out a strong favorite at
Sports to win the 2009 American
Idol. Where the supporters of Danny will turn could be the
finale-deciding question, but if you like a good underdog story,
now is the time to take a look at Kris Allen.
