American Idol Ignorance?


Okay, I started to call this American Idol Idiots, but thought that might be a bit strong, but now that I have your attention... yes, we do follow American Idol at our house. I can't imagine any musician at least not being mildly interested in the show, just to see where America's brain is at, musically speaking, these days. On the way home from a nice family dinner outing last night, my oldest daughter asked me who my favorite was, so just for fun I thought I'd post my favorites - or the Top Ten.

  1. Paris Bennett
  2. Taylor Hicks
  3. Elliot Yamin
  4. Chris Daughtry
  5. Mandisa
  6. Ace Young
  7. Bucky Covington
  8. Katharine McPhee
  9. Kellie Pickler
  10. Gedeon McKinney
  11. Kevin Covais

I think it could end up being any of the top 4 (as listed above) but who knows? America doesn't always vote the best singer to the final. Yes, I know I listed 11 instead of 10, but you can't really expect me to put Kevin (Chicken Little) ahead of someone who could actually really sing, do you? Gedeon was voted off WAY too soon, and should still be in the competition as far as I'm concerned. Maybe his style was a bit "dated" but the guy could sing - and in tune - which is more than I can say for over half of the top 8 as chosen by America thus far. And one more thing - Mandisa should still be in there too!! Oh, well... that's American Idol Ignorance for you!
