'American Idol' Outcast Danny Gokey to Do Soulful Album
'American Idol' contestant who finished third, Danny Gokey, plans to do an R 'n' B album with a dash of Latin vibe in honor of his late Puerto Rican wife.


It is still a long way journey, Danny Gokey plans to do an album where his genre fits. "I really want to do a soulful album," he revealed, "but I want to mix it with nice beats, like nice R&B beats, beats that get people's heads moving, and mix it with a hint of a Latin vibe. I was with my wife for 12 years, she was Puerto Rican, and I'm so into salsa and merengue, and I want to mix it in one arena."

Gokey's departure from "American Idol" on Wednesday night, May 6 was somewhat in the back of his mind. The Milwaukee native finished third on the eight season of the talent show although he was never on the bottom three throughout the season. But he saw it coming. "I was very confident in the fact that it was it for me," Gokey said.

In a conference call with some reporters, Gokey has a possible theory why he is not in the top 2: his screaming rendition of Aerosmith's "Dream On". He said, "I was actually thinking about that this morning. I was like, 'Man, maybe that was the downfall.' Because the week before, I had a really good performance. I guess I just really wanted to have a big song that week, so I took a risk."

Simon Cowell was openly campaigning about Adam Lambert, and Gokey admitted to no jealousy. In fact, he was given a piece of advice by the judge upon his exit. "You are a phenomenal singer, but these things happen. You are one heck of a singer," Simon said as quoted by Gokey.

Asked about his view on the final between Adam Lambert and Kris Allen, Gokey answered "Kris, obviously he's really artistic. And Adam has a way of capturing the audience. ... Don't have your assumptions. If you want a certain person to win, you gotta vote. This competition is not over yet. This is gonna be a very tight race. "
