American Idol March 1st

Boys night: I thought three of the performers were the best of the bunch: Chris Daughtry (liked the singer but didn’t like the song), Elliott Yamin, and Gideon McKinney. Then another group of good singers who could win, but not as talented: Ace Young (he is too pretty for my taste) who has a pretty good voice, Taylor Hicks who makes me feel good, who is original, Kevin Y…….the kid, who also makes me feel good. Kevin actually has a really nice voice, and is a good performer. I also like Will Makar who sings the old fashioned stuff I like, and has a nice sound.

That leaves the bottom three with Jose Sway Penada, who may have just been off tonight. He sounded off key to me. Cody Witherspoon, a Bo Bice clone without the charisma and voice, and David “Sinatra” Bradford. I actually like David but he seems limited to me.

I think that Simon and maybe all the judges like Elliott to win, but I think Chris has more charisma and that may separate the two. But the underdog may be Gideon. Million dollar smile, very confident and a great voice.

So that’s my take, what’s yours?

    Report card from Craig Berman of MSNBC:

    No one has hit me between the eyes like both Carrie and Bo did last year. I need someone to hit it big enough to make me want to call and vote, and so far, nada. Wouldn’t it be interesting if the last two singers were Paris Bennett and Gideon McKinney…..What do you think?

    I like your top three guys. Right on there! And I’d love to see Paris and Gideon as the final two, but I don’t think that will happen. We’ll see.

    But wouldn’t that be awesome. I think Gideon is young too. They are both old souls in young bodies.
