Kris Allen vs. dramatic bangs, split personalities and 16-year-olds

Posted By on Wed, Feb 25, 2009 at 2:48 PM


Like I told you last week, the odds seem stacked against Kris Allen tonight in the second week of semi-finals on "American Idol." He's up against two 16-year-olds, a guy with a split personality, another burly blue-collar dude, a flamboyant man with dramatic bangs who, bizarrely, everyone loves and several other folks with treacly back stories, all of whom have gotten a lot of air time, while Allen's time on the show has been mostly limited to brief performance clips.

So that means Allen will have to bowl over America with his performance tonight to be one of the top three who move on.

But! There's still a wildcard round in two weeks. The first runner-up from each of the three semi-final rounds automatically makes the cut, but then, the other nine contestants are judges picks. Which, as our resident "Idol" prognosticator points out, could work in Allen's favor. The judges see all. Maybe they'll spot something in Allen that America doesn't have a chance to see.

Jeez. This is some arcane nonsense.

Still, tune in, 7 p.m. on Fox and vote your state.
