American Idol

I find that I am very interested in American Idol this Season. I like the addition of the fourth judge. (I actually like her better than Randy) I also think they have some interesting contestants. Allison the wonderful 16 year old Rocker Chick is probably my favorite of all the females participating. Yes, Lil Rounds and Alexis Grace can both sing like there's no tomorrow but I just don't seem to like them much. Maybe they'll like blow me away with one of their song choices in the coming weeks. We'll see.

Now on to the real reason I'm posing this blog. Adam Lambert. I love him, I think he may be my favorite contestant from ANY of the seasons. (I know, I thought it would always be Carrie Underwood for me too, guess not) Before I rant about why I like him I'll take some time to talk about some of the other male contestants. Kris Allen is wonderfully cute and I like his voice. I hope he makes it at least to the top 10 so he'll get to go on the tour, but I don't see him winning it. One guy who I can see winning is Danny Gokey. The guy can sing (even though I don't think hes anywhere near as incredible as lot of people do) and he's got the whole dead wife sob story going for him. (I don't mean to sound insensitive about it, but you know it's true.) The other male contestant I feel deserves a mention is Scott Macintyre who has an OK voice and a vision problem (he's almost blind). He's another guy who the judges rave about but I just don't feel the same as they do.

Now, back to Adam. I just really like him. At first I wasn't sure that I would (and that made me sad because he's gay and I wanted to like him because of that). I hated his song choice of "I Can't Get No Satisfaction," actually, I hate that song no matter who is singing it. (Except for Britney of course, she can do no wrong.) Speaking of Britney, I'm bummed that Adam doesn't include her as one of his favorite female artists along with Xtina and Madonna. (See his Idol Contestant Page Here) Anyway, after tonights performance of "Black and White" by Michael Jackson I officially love Adam. He looked great, he sounded great, and the judges agreed. They gave him rave reviews.

Check out that performance and Paula's opinion:

I do worry that America will not vote for him because he's gay. Americans obviously still have a problem with gay people (you know, since we don't have all the same rights as straight people). Also, I worry that people WILL like him so much that they think he's going to be safe and fail to vote. (It's happened in the past, can you say Daughtry?)

Anyway, this season is going to be great. I have my fingers crossed for a Britney themed week like they did on the X-Factor in the UK.

I personally like the 4th judge better than Paula. I think sometimes Paula rambles and doesn’t make sense. Kara seems to give good advice that the contestants. Also, Paula getson my nerves because she is constantly flirting with Simon. Its rather childish.
As for the girs, Allison is my favorite as well. I think the winner this year will be a guy, though. Im pulling for Danny Goeky or Scott MacEntire. Danny can sing and he seems to have a great personality to go with it! I like Adam as well, just not as much as Danny and Scott. Hes just not as likeable and loveable as the other 2. And I totally agree about the Britney themed week!

Yeah, I agree. Kara always seems to give good advice. (I don't agree with her sometimes though haha) Paula is just like ... I don't even know. She tried to say "authenticity" last night and it totally didn't come out right like twice. Then the other night she said something like "When you can hear somebody with your eyes closed and still know exactly who they are" and I was like WHAT?!? REALLY!? Lol.
