After weeks of unmitigated torment, it's finally down to three contestants on "American Idol." We have the milquetoasty Kris Allen, whose recent performance Simon so perfectly likened to lunching on ice.
Then there's screaming evangelical Christian widower Danny Gokey, who goes into the "Idol" history books for the longest wail heard since Paula said she'd never been drunk.
Last, there's severely razor-cut, pierced and black-nail-polished Adam Lambert, whose voice was clearly made for Broadway, and I for one can not wait to see him in a revival of "Annie Get Your Gun."
