Been following this site for a couple of years, but just recently made an account and first post.
Brett Loewenstern - Nice kid and his heart is in the right place, but I really can't blame people for bullying him with the way he comes off, and this is coming from a person who's experienced bullying of his own at some point. And I don't him because it's his fault we won't get to see Jacyee fail even more.
Casey Abrams - He's talented and can be entertaining (though I find him annoying), but in the same way people who work at a circus are talented and entertaining. He could do well at coffee shops or busking for change. His strength is being versatile...making annoying sound effects and playing irrelevant instruments well, which won't help him in getting a record deal. Based on pure singing alone, his voice is nothing to rave about.
Clint Jun Gamboa - He actually has a good R&B voice, but good R&B artists also have swagger, and he can be too goofy on stage and won't be taken seriously. But based on his voice alone, he's actually one of the stronger ones, but again, the competition isn't too high this year.
Jacob Lusk - Like Casey, he's not a recording artist. He's too over the top and dramatic all the time, and like that producer said, that's not a good thing. And like Casey, his strength is also his downfall. If he's always over the top, it's bad. But if he's not dramatic, his voice is just average. He needs to try out for Glee or something, his best chance is musical theatre.
James Durbin - Adam Lambert-wannabe. He even copied him with "A Change Is Gonna Come" except Adamn's performance was by far superior. And we already have Adam Lambert.
Jordan Dorsey - Overrated. His first audition was good, but he's been all hype since. Along with his first audition, it's because he towers over everybody and called the shots during "group week". One of the weaker guys, and I wouldn't be surprised if he's the first one to go home.
Jovany Barreto - A "cheesy Spanish singer". How many weeks before he comes out on stage shirtless with a rose in his mouth...
Paul McDonald - There's something creepy about this guy, but his voice eventually grew on me a little when I heard more of it. His song choices probably won't be appealing to 14 year old girls, so he'll probably be gone early. But his voice is unique and I can see it being appealing to a lot of producers, so he'll get signed either way.
Robbie Rosen - He makes the funniest faces when he sings, but I think he's one of the strongest guys this year. Even if he wins, I think he'll be forgotten immediately, he's Kris Allen 2.0.
Scott McCreey - He's done once "Theme Week" starts.
Stefano Langone - Karaoke Champ.
Tim Halperin - He's actually got a good voice for a pop rock band with a piano. Unfortunately, he's a sound-a-like...to any pop rock band with a piano. Regardless, I think him and Robbie are the front runners for the guys right now.
Ta-Tynisa Wilson and Karen Rodriguez - Who and who?
Naima Adedapo - I liked her until her last audition song, when she started screaming off key, she must have delivered one freakin' amazing performance somewhere in the middle for the judges to put her through.
Kendra Chantelle - She needs to always sing or she'll sound like a dude. I actually like her because I can understand what she's singing when she's belting it out.
Rachel Zevita - She's got a cool rocker voice that I like, but as we've seen in the past, she doesn't take criticism well, so the more notes she doesn't hit, the more entertainment for us.
Lauren Turner - She struggled during group week, but suddenly came out of nowhere with her strong Vegas week, since she didn't get much air time early on. I think she's the darkhorse for the girls this year.
Ashthon Jones - Hey, she was in a group with Ashley Sullivan and still appears sane, so she deserves to win just for that.
Julie Zorrilla - Damn, she's hot. Next.
Haley Reinhart - I can't understand a word she sings.
Thia Megia - I liked her voice when she did the Adele song, and with just about every female contestent belting it out this year, she should sing more Jazzy stuff. She's probably gonna be Lauren Alaina's biggest competition. Plus, I like her even more simply because of her, Jessica Cunningham gave one of Idol's best moments.
Lauren Alaina - We all know Idol wants to groom her into the next winner, so whatever, she's the front runner. So she's 15, already felt up Steven Tyler and practically had her boobs popping out with her Halloween costume, but as long she brings in the money, her parents are cool with it, right? And I still find it hard to believe she's only 15, half of the girls at my college look younger than her.
Pia Toscano - I think she's the most recording artist ready from looks, stage presence, voice... Plus, she didn't sell a sob story or do anything to get any air time on her background, so a plus in my book for not being an attention whore. But Idol wants a child to win this year.
