Best Top Two American Idols

Which American Idol Top Two Is the Best?

This year's final two American Idol contestants are very talented — and very different. Adam Lambert and Kris Allen have a lot of people buzzing about how amazing Tuesday's Idol finale will be. It would definitely be a tough vote for me to cast!

But is this the best top two ever? Last year's David vs. David felt fairly epic and also had two very distinct choices. The finale was a nailbiter and prompted some pretty strong reactions in households across the nation. But did even that battle top the original top two: Justin vs. Kelly? Or is there another top two that you think is the best?

It's Clay/Ruben for me. Both had a super sound, but Clay was just heart stopping with that range and tone. His lower register is a killer. He still has the best, most versatile voice ever on Idol . Bought all his cds, and Carrie's first one. She was so appealing, and great for country. Purchased Adam's, as he has a super voice and stage presence, and his cd is just amazing. Don't care much for his antics sometimes though!!! Hubby bought Daughtry's first one, but that's it for us so far.

I have watched all the seasons, and loved them all, however never since season two have I (personally) been so enthralled. I have never re played any of the others songs they sang except for Clay. He really blew me personally away. I have also enjoyed season 8, and Kris, for different reasons to Clay, so My choice will possibly always be season 2, but this season is a close second. I loved Kris and Adam.

Carrie and Bo was my favorite finale...and the Ruben/Clay showdown was pretty exciting too.

The first season was a toss up and pretty close as was Ruben and Clay but I voted for Carrie and Bo. The first 2 non pop artists in the finale. Fantasia and Diana was the worst match up that poor Diana didn't stand a chance. I thought that this match up was going to be similar but Kris did hold his own last night and could cause an upset. These days with Idol it doesn't really matter if you win or come in second you still get singed by the AI record label. It's just having that title. Similar to a boxing match- you still make a lot of money for getting out there and fighting but you don't win the belt for bragging rights.

Wait, i did buy Fantasia's 2nd album, and it was really good, but of course a flop!

I never watch American Idol, but I'm actually one of the few people that end up buying the music of the winners and various finalists. I bought both Jordin and Blake's first albums and just loved them. Other than Kelly, I haven't purchased anyone else's full albums.

I think Kelly Clarkson has had the most success internationally. She's the only one I know and I haven't watched AI ever.

What other top two contestants even came close to inspiring the epic cinema masterpiece that is "From Justin to Kelly with Love"? Right there--winners hands down. LOL...

Kelly, Clay and Carrie are still the top 3 after 8 seasons but come on. No way you can have more votes than views. and last night there were 2,000 views and 4,500 votes for Carrie. The hits don't lie.

It would probably have to be Carrie and Bo, really didn't care to much for Bo though.

I chose Clay/Rueben too, most memorable season for me (still can't believe Rueben won over Clay!). After those 2, I would go with Carrie/Bo.
