It is about time that I do another American Idol ranking. In my previous post, I mentioned my top five contestants after Hollywood week (I'm still bummed Tim didn't make it further), but since then we've seen three weeks of great performances and now I need to update... slightly. :)Read More
Who's been watching the new season of American Idol? This girl, of course. I gotta say, if you thought you'd skip out this year because Simon is no longer a part of the show... you're missing out. It's 10x better. Who am I lovin' so far?Read More
Last night the show featured auditions from Nashville, TN. So of course we were bound to hear some of the most talented voices in the country, right? Wrong. At least in my opinion. I thought last night's show was kinda disappointing, to be honest. In fact, I felt so unfulfilled that I went back and re-watched some of my favorite auditions from New Orleans and Milwaukee. I didn't think there were any potential winners in last night's show... Except one.
Rob Bolin. (You thought I was going to say Lauren Alaina, didn't you??) I LOVED his voice! He was the first guy that sang with his ex-girlfriend, Chelsea Oak. And while both got through to Hollywood, I felt that he was the much stronger vocalist. Reminds me a little of one of my favorite singer/songwriters, Ray Lamontagne. If it doesn't work out for him (the show and the relationship), I do hope that he finds another gal to sing harmony with - he could definitely be in a folk/country duo.
Like I said, not many impressed me last night - including the already-frontrunner, Lauren Alaina. I guess the commercials (and the call from one of my friends, before I'd even watched it!) spoiled it for me. I was expecting to be blown away... and I guess, I was just kinda impressed. In fact, I thought her little "I Don't Wanna Miss a Thing" duet with Steven Tyler was more impressive than her audition! She has the personality of Jordin Sparks and a young Kelly Clarkson... but, whether she'll just be another Diana Degarmo or the next Carrie Underwood is yet to be seen. I'm rooting for her though. I really want a girl to win this season and so far, she's the best bet for it.
