American Idol Elimination: Danny Gokey

at . Comments

Danny Gokey has a great voice and a touching personal story.

But his consistently solid, albeit unspectacular, American Idol performances weren't enough to propel the singer into next week's finals; he was eliminated last night.

In the video montage that played at the conclusion of the show, Gokey reflected on his journey (which, sadly, included his wife passing away just weeks before his initial audition):

"It's almost like a fairy tale story.  You read about tragedies, and then you read about the triumph that comes through it - and I'm that person. This whole experience feels like a dream come true.  American Idol has given me a whole new hope for my life."

So, Kris Allen and Adam Lambert will go head-to-head on the finale. Who do you think should win?
