NEW YORK (AP) -- The pressure is on for Danny Gokey, Kris Allen and Adam Lambert.

There's just one week until the "American Idol" finale, and on Tuesday night, the all-male trio competed for two spots in next week's much-hyped sing-off.

They each performed two songs, one picked by the judges' panel and the other chosen by themselves.

As usual, Lambert wowed the panel with his daring vocal range and style. He sang the U2 anthem "One" — Simon Cowell's selection — and his personal choice: the Aerosmith classic "Crying."

It was a last chance to make an impression on the voting viewers. Now, the aspiring pop stars await the verdict on Wednesday's results show.
