American Idol Recap: Kris Allen is "Heartless," Amazing

Sorry, Danny Gokey fans.

But next week's American Idol finale simply has to come down to Kris Allen versus Adam Lambert.

Gokey was solid on his two songs this week - "“Dance Little Sister" and "You Are So Beautiful" - but he doesn't blow us away at this point.

Lambert, conversely, was his usual, amazing self on "One" and "Cryin," as Kara summed it up simply with her assessment: "We'll see you at the finals."

As for Allen... wow! The following rendition of "Heartless" was easily our favorite non-Lambert performance of the season:
