American Idol

Okay, I told you all in my first post I'm a TV fanatic. I love American Idol. Even though I can't sing like that, I can hear. And I, like everyone else who watches, have my opinions. I thought the guys as a group were a lot better than the girls. I think I could pick the top 6 right now. In the interest of time, I'll keep it to the top 4.

David Archuleta
-I LOVE this kid! He is so humble and goofy and sweet and sincere. And he sings like an angel. He is confident without being cocky and seems to be having a great time. He is a favorite for sure.

Michael Johns
-This guy looks like he could front a band tomorrow. His "Bohemian Rhapsody" during Hollywood week was my favorite performance. Again, confident without seeming cocky.

Jason Castro
-A true original. He was the only one who played an instrument. We didn't see him at all during Hollywood week but he definitely won't be forgotten now. He's a little...weird maybe? But there's something about him.

There are others of course but I thought these were the top 3. Who should go home tonight? They pick two but I'll name just one.

Garrett Haley
-Not good. He was on vacation in San Diego when they had tryouts and decided to go for fun. I don't know how he made it and Josiah didn't. Random.

As for the ladies, I didn't always agree with the judges and I was a little disappointed overall but here's my top 3.

Amanda Overmyer
-There's no other girl like her in the competition. I think she's the first real "rocker" girl AI has ever had. She's so calm, cool, and collected. I can't wait to see what she does with the different themes.

Syesha Mercado
-Powerful voice. Great performer. I think she's the most beautiful girl in the bunch. She's super talented but there's something about her personality that seems a little...fake. I loved "Tobacco Road".

Alexandrea Lushington
-I didn't agree with Simon on her. I usually agree with Simon (although I think he's too mean about it). But I loved her. I thought she was one of the best for sure. She's original and confident and when she sings it seems effortless. She makes it look so easy. I like her.

There were a lot of girls who fell in the middle for me. I wonder if I'll ever keep all the blondes straight. There was one who I thought fell at the bottom of the bunch.

Amy Davis
-Who? Unfortunately for her, we didn't see her during Hollywood week and no one will remember her after last night either. I thought she sounded off quite a bit and her performance was boring.
Feel free to agree or disagree, these are just my opinions. I have been known to change my mind. We'll see.

I'm a big Idol fan, too. And I "heart" little David! He is so acorable.

Tracy, I'm not a blogger, but found you through your sweet sister, Montee. I agree with you about Amanda, especially after last night's performance. (BTW, I think Montee disagrees with us on this one!) Even Simon said she was the best of the night! Hope she stays true to herself!
