Just 1 million votes separated "American Idol" Top 2 Adam Lambert and Kris Allen this week. It's enough to make some former skeptics believe underdog Allen has a shot at the title.
Also helping Allen's case is the fact he'll likely get a chunk of votes from former Danny Gokey supporters. There's little chance fans of Gokey's saccharine ballads will back polarizing Lambert.
But you can't disregard Lambert's front-runner status, as well as his standout vocal range and shock value.
The Top 2 will perform 8-9 p.m. Tuesday. Results air 8-10 p.m. Wednesday.
