It’s finally here!  It has been a long journey and last night the final two gave it their all in night one of the two-night season finale of American Idol.  This season has had its shocking moments (i.e. the early departure of Alexis Grace) but all of that has been said and done and the battle for the title of the next “American Idol” is down to the Frontrunner (Adam Lambert) vs. The Dark Horse (Kris Allen).

From the beginning Adam Lambert has been the considered the front runner of Season 8 and all of the judges slated Adam to have a one way ticket to the finals.  Kris Allen on the other hand has slowly emerged as one to watch as his “artistic” performances from week to week has shown great progression during the course of this competition.

Last week, Kris Allen won the coin toss and chose to sing second.  Each contestant performed 3 songs.  Their favorite song of the season, a song chosen by Simon Fuller (Creator of American Idol), and an original song: “No Boundaries” co-written by American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi.
