American Idol

My dear, dear husband has issued me a challenge. Every season, we become captivated by American Idol. We LOVE good music and get very emotional about these young singers who pour their hearts into the music each week.

For the last couple of season, he has picked the top three on the week before the Top Twelve take the stage. I am not kidding. It drives me crazy. Anyway...

This year we have a friendly little "competition" going on. NOT a bet mind you, we're Baptist and we don't gamble....just wanted to clarify that in case my parents somehow get their Internet issue figured out in the next few days....

Where was I.... oh, the "competition".

We are making our list in elimination order. So I will start at 12 and hopefully after much prayer, fasting and meditation the person I have listed next to number 1 will be the next American Idol..... here goes..

12. David Cook
11. Chikezie
10. Ramiele Malubay
9. David Hernandez
8. Amanda Overmyer
7. Kristy Lee Cook
6. Jason Castro
5. Brook White
4. Syesha Mercado
3. Carly Smithson
2. Michael Johns
1. David Archuleta

My 1 and 2 picks are my favorite of the guys. I'm torn there big time. While Brook White is my favorite lady, I think she will go earlier than I'd like. Okay, so there is my idea of how the show will's documented and now we'll see how bad Chad beats me!!!

That is a great list. It would be very hard for me to choose at this point. But I do think the rocker-dude will go farther than the rocker-chick. But who knows!!! :)

Since I am a Baptist too and I would never acutally "bet" on something....let me just go on the record and say that I, too believe David Archuleta will win the whole dern thang! I love Brooke, but I just dont think she has what it takes - but she is my favorite of the gilrs. She is humble and I like that in a person....a little humility can take you a long way. I am just glad that gay guy went home - I saw a video he made a few years ago and it was vile and vulgar....he does not need to be in the public eye at all. Also, the one guy used to be a stripper? What is up with all the drama around these kids?

Anyway, that is what I think just for the record - no betting of course.

I can't agree with the first eliminations on your list. I think 8, 9, 10 and 11 will all go before David Cook. He is one of my favorites. I do agree that David A will be in the top 2 and I think he will be there with either Carly (I don't care for her but I think she will do well) or Michael Johns. I like Kristy Cook and if she would sing country she would do very well.

By the way, I have a new Saturday meme that I think you will enjoy. It is about music... one of your favorite things. Come by and join me and help spread the word.

I have had fun reading your posts! I found you through Amy Wyatt's CWO interview. Nice to meet you! :)

I definitely like Brooke the best out of all of the ladies, and my husband and I are partial to Michael Johns. But I definitely think David A. is awesome, too! there's some input from some strange lady who is visiting you for the first time. :) Who knew that American Idol could unite us all?

I like your top two guys also - but I'm rooting for Brooke all the way. :)
