Am I the Only One?

Am I the only one that thinks Amanda needs to go home? (and I've thought it for the last, uh, two weeks!). Not that she isn't talented, but I don't think her talent matches up to what it takes. To me, it always sounds like she's screaming. Same sound, no matter what the song. And I like a wide variety of music, including some Joplin. So I'm thinking it's not the song choice...
I just can't stand her. I have nicknamed her skunk-combine the hair with the fact I think her singing more or less stinks, and I think you get skunk.

On a better note, I'm quickly becoming a big fan of Brooke. The last two weeks I think she's been amazing! I want each of the songs she sang, her version. She seems so "real" and what-you-see-is-what-you-get. I like that about a person.

Carly, of course-love her. (Come on, she's from Ireland!). She is quite talented, and I loved Come Together this week. Great choice.

One person I've changed my mind about is Syesha. I liked her at first, especially during Hollywood round, but not so much any more. While I still feel she is very talented, I'm getting the impression she is a little cocky, over-confident, and, well, maybe full of herself. I'd like to be wrong.

I'm glad David Hernandez was the one to leave tonight and not Kristy Lee. I truly feel she is much more talented than we've seen, and that she's gotten credit for.

As for who I want to win, at this point-can't say yet. I really like Brooke, Chikezie really improved...I need more time.

Do you already have one specific person in mind you'd like to see win this season of American Idol?

I think Carley is the most talented overall vocally. Amanda is interesting but there's no way I could listen to an entire album of that screaming.

I have a feeling David will win - seems every 13 year old girl has nothing better to do than text a few hundred votes for David each week!

I definitely agree that Amanda NEEDS to go home. She does look like a skunk, I've thought that from the beginning and cannot believe that she is my age!!

I would like to see Brooke do well, I think she has an amazing voice. I think David A. will probably be in the top 2, as long as he can pull it back together next week!

I haven't been keep up with American Idol, it's on at the same time as Biggest Loser so I usually switch back in forth. We don't have TVO. Anyway.. I don't like Amanda either - she looks like the Bride of Frankenstien and I like the nick name Skunk. LoL! She looks hard and mean. =(
I did watch last night - becasue we couldn't find anything else to watch and Amelia was in a good sleep so I didn't want to go get my FAMILIA homework. I didn't like the guy that left very well - oh well... will see if I watch more in the weeks to come. Thanks for the update, I didn't even know names. Ha ha.

I totally agree that Amanda needs to go...like a long time ago. I'm surprised that she made it on the show to start with and am also extremely surprised that the judges think so highly of her.

I agree with Bethany, Brooke has really started to impress me. I wasn't so interested in her at first but this past week I had a totally new feeling about her. She's a sweetheart.

I think that David Archuleta is just amazing. He has what it takes to be the next Idol.

Kristy Lee Cook....WOW, she butchered that song. Little too twangy for me and I just couldn't believe that she did that to a Beatles song.

I'm completely on board with you! I think Amanda is screaming and sounds as if she's trying to be like Gretchen Wilson... blah! I really like Brooke... great voice and seems really down to earth.

I'm not a fan of Amanda either but I see why the judges like her. I think her is awful too but she knows how to own the stage. Making a hit record isn't just about the voice-you have to have the whole package. Sharon, we learned that from Anita!!!! I LOVE David Archleta, he is pure & his talent is astounding. Not to mention very humble. He was nervous this week but I like that, he should be & hopefully will be the next idol!!! Carly I think too, has the best voice & she was amazing with her song!!! Brooke was great too doing Let It Be but there is something too good about her that bothers me. I guess I like a little bad but then I don't see it in David Archuleta but he'a a lot younger. I think David Cook (name?) is good too. Not my style but I think he is great on stage. David Hernandez went home I bet because of the whole stripper thing, dumb!!! It shoud have been Kristi (sp?) because she ruined that song!! I do like her but didn't anyone advise her??? Can't wait to see David A. next week!!!

I absolutely agree with EVERY word that you just said!!

Brooke is my favorite. I also really like Carly and David Cook.

I liked Syesha a lot early in the season, but not so much now. Chikezie is growing on me--I like his enthusiasm.

I'm sure I'll make a lot of people mad with this--I don't want David Archuleta to win. I think he is a GREAT singer, probably be best vocalist on the show. I'm just not a fan of his stage presence. For me, you've got to have the whole package to win and I just think he is a little to awkward on the stage. Perhaps he'll grow over the weeks and I may change my mind.

For now, I'm rooting for Brooke, followed by Carly and David Cook.
