Who's Your Favorite?

Are you a fan of American Idol? I am. I love music. I am in awe of the sounds that come out of the mouths of some of these young people. I don't have a nice voice, but let me tell you...I will sing my little heart of whenever the urge strikes!

Tresa and Chris and Michael and Bernadette watch Idol too. It's fun "comparing notes" to see if we are in agreement after certain performances. Sometimes we are and sometimes we aren't. Last year, Michael loved Brooke White. I thought she was pathetic. Simon could say, "Brooke you look disgusting tonight and you sounded like crap," and she would smile so sweetly and say, "Oh thank you Simon. I appreciate your constructive criticism. It means so much to me. Thank you, thank you." Give me a break!

This year my whole family likes Scott. He isn't their favorite, but they all think he's really good...especially Irv. It's a great story and I have great respect for what he has done with his life, but I find his voice extremely irritating and his stage presence is awful. He is just plain old boring. My family rips on me saying, "OMG you don't like the blind guy. That's terrible!" It isn't that I don't like Scott as a person, I just can't stand his voice.

Who am I rooting for this season...Adam of course. I think he is a very talented musician. I love what he does with the songs he performs.. and yes, I even loved "Ring of Fire!" He's very creative. I also prefer his dark look to his slick look.

Danny is another of my favorites. He has a very touching story, but that isn't why I like him. He has that true enthusiasm when he's on stage. He doesn't have to remind himself to be enthusiastic...he just naturally is and it shows.

I also like Kris. He has a great voice and he is nice to look at as well. My concern for him is that there isn't anything that really makes him stand out personality-wise and that could be a problem for him in the next few weeks.

Allison has an amazing gift for a kid that age. She has the voice and can really wow the crowd. I'm a little surprised that she keeps popping up in the bottom three, but I think the young girls are voting for the cool guys. I love her gritty voice, but then I love Janis Joplin too.

So, those are my picks. How about you? Will you be watching tonight? If so, who gets your vote?

I'm a die-hard fan...did you see my pics in the sidebar?! I had my top 12 when the show was at 36...

I agree about Scott-his voice tears right through me! Just listening to the short clips at the close of the show, it is clear that he is out of his league at this point in the competition.

My favorites change from week to week, it's still too all over the place for me to choose just one.

LOL! I just started watching Idol last year and have to admit I was a Brooke fan ;-) I liked the guy with the dreads, too ;-) David Archiletta (sp?) was like fingernails on a blackboard to me--too white bread boring....and David Cook still annoys me ;-)

This year's group has generally annoyed me for some reason....thank heavens that girl left last week is all I can say. Poor Scott...I agree that he is out of his league. I like Danny and Allison....up until last night I was not a fan of Adam but who can say he's not talented???? He sure stood out last night...in my humble opinion...;-)

and I have to say I usually agree with Simon all the way. He tells it like it is ;-) sometimes he could be gentler but making it in the music biz isn't a gentle path....

I agree with you about Scott. His voice is just not good enough for AI.

My coworker LOVES Adam Lambert and I like to tease her by calling him Adam Glambert. I think he has a great voice. I think he would be super on Broadway. She thinks he is sexy. I can't convince her that he is sexy...just to men and not women. She will see. I missed last night's performance because Tivo cut him off.

I think Kris is the best singer. Anoop is my favorite though. (I find Indian men very sexy is probably the reason) I never vote though. So I guess it doesn't matter who I like.

I am in agreement w/ you..I am proud of Scott..but I do not like his voice at all. He can definitely sing..I just don't like the sound of it. And it seems that he goes off key more then anyone. Well Lil Rounds seems off a bit to me too. Plus I don't like her tone either.

I would like to see Adam and Allison in the finals. I'm not crazy about Adams high voice..but he is so interesting and is an amazing performer. His song choices are really interesting. I was worried when he sang one of my 80's favorites "Mad World" by Tears for Fears last night..I said "noooo what are you gonna do to it??!" but it was pretty good! I LOVE the tone of Allison's voice..it's amazing! She made me like the heart song she sang..and I hate Heart!

I still like Danny, Kris and Matt too. I'm loosing my enthusiasm for Danny..I liked him a lot in the beginning..but he's starting to bore me. (I feel like Simon when I use that word lol!)

I liked Brooke last year..she did good changing most things to her own style minus a couple catastrophes. Her rendition of Love is a Battlefield was 'brilliant'! David Cook was my fav last year though.
