I personally think Kris is a total yawnfest, but I get why people like him, and I do think he is one of the more marketable performers.Originally Posted by Fooled Again;3423941;
I actually think he has a shot of winning and of having more post-Idol success than the others - including Adam.
If you look back at some of the more successful idols, Kelly Clarkson, Chris Daughtry, David Cook, etc. is that they are all songwriters in the same whay Kris is.
The ones who simply "perform" rather than write are the ones that seem to struggle. The public doesn't seem to connect with them as well (generally speaking of course).
Adam is somewhat of an exception, I think. He could do very well as simply a performer but it would have to be with the greatest glam rock band ever. Otherwise, it's back to Broadway.
There are worse things that can happen, though, so he'll be fine either way.
I think all the remaining contestants have niches they could fill very well.
