American Idol showdown finale! See the winner on LKL this week!

Posted: 10:33 AM ET

No matter who is crowned the next American Idol on Wednesday night, season eight has already been one for the books.

After a wild season that has included emotional breakdowns from almost-finalists, a comedian/singer who almost crashed the top 13 with his over-the-top shtick, the first top 13, a wild-card round, a judges' save and some serious bickering among the expanded judging panel, you'd think that whatever happens on the finale would be an anti-climax.

But thanks to the surprise exit of early favorite Danny Gokey last week, tonight's (May 19) sing-off between Kris Allen and Adam Lambert has injected some late-season drama into the still top-rated U.S. show. Host Ryan Seacrest said on Friday's "Larry King Live" that Tuesday's show will consist of a first round of the contestants' favorites from this season, followed by songs chosen by producer Simon Fuller and then a round in which they each sing this year's yet-unannounced winner's single.

BOLD QUESTION FOR KRIS!!!!!.
SHOCKER CHRISTIAN ADAM FANS..THIS WILL COME AS A SHOCK ; MY HUSBAND AND I SHARE THE SAME PASTOR AS KRIS BACK HOME. INFACT, WE LIVE NEAR HIS PARENTS. YES, MY HUSBAND & I HAVE A CLOSE RELATIONSHIP WITH THE LORD. FROM THE COMMENTS BEING MADE ABOUT ADAM I THINK WE MAY BE THE ONLY CHRISTIANS THAT ARE HIS FANS.
HURTFUL COMMENTS HAVE BEEN MADE TO ME FROM OTHER CHRISTIANS SUCH AS "AS A CHRISTIAN I SHOULD HAVE CONVICTIONS ABOUT BEING AN ADAM FAN".
WE DO BELIEVE THAT GOD HAS GIVEN BOTH KRIS & ADAM A GOD GIVING VOICE & AN AMAZING TALENT. GOD LOVES ADAM REGARDLESS OF HIS BLACK EYELINER OR HIS SEXUALITY. GOD LOVES ADAM EQUALLY AS HE LOVES KRIS. WE INSTANTLY FELL INLOVE WITH ADAMS VOICE. WE KNEW FROM THE START GOD HAS BIG FUTURE PLANS FOR KRIS, BUT WE LEANED TOWARDS ADAMS VOICE, SINCE THIS IS A SINGING COMPETETION.& HAVE BEEN HIS FAITHFUL FANS. I WOULD LIKE FOR KRIS TO RESPOND TO WHAT I JUST SHARED AS I KNOW CHRISTIANS WILL BE WATCHING THIS PROGRAM FRIDAY NIGHT..

christians have really given the name christian a black eye. what i mean is this, the kkk members have been known for calling themselves a christians. we have people who live whatever kind of life they want to live and still say, they are christians. now we all know that, that can not be true. i can not practice hate and be a christian, and i can not practice living a immoral life and still qualify myself as a christian. we often talk about how GOD loves all of us, which is a true statment, but we don't like to talk about the things in the bible that we read, that JESUS AND HIS DISCIPLE taught that GOD hates. GOD IS A LOVING GOD, BUT GOD DOES HATE SIN, NOT THE SINNER. I DON'T KNOW WHERE ALONG THE WAY OF LIFE AS A CHRISTIAN , WE BEGAN TO THINK AND BELIEVE THAT, WE CAN LIVE ANYWAY WE WANT TO CAUSE GOD LOVES US. STOP DECEIVING YOURSELVES.
