Okay, I'll admit to being an Idol fan. I've watched every episode so far this year and I have to say, I'm feeling the guys a lot more than the girls. I think there are some great female vocalists, but aside from Kellie Pickler, none of them really seem to stand out personality wise. The guys however have a great selection - especially now that the annoying Brittenum twins are out.
All my fav's made it into the top 24, so that's a good start for this season. Right now, I'm really rooting for Chris Daughtry, Taylor Hicks, Ace Young and David Radford. Chris has a great rock sound, but I think he's capable of more styles than just rock. Taylor Hicks is just so unique, but in a really fantastic way. I think that whether he wins or not, he's got a record deal coming his way. Ace Young has such a smooth sexy voice, probably the most pop sounding. And David Radford looks like a young version of Harry Connick, Jr. - only with a better voice. He sounds a little more Michael Buble to me. The problem I see is that he might not be able to carry off any other style of music. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that he can.
Now, last year I predicted after the 24 were chosen, that Bo, Carrie and Anthony would be in the top 3. I did pretty good. Carrie won, Bo was a real close second and Anthony was number 4 I believe. So this year I'm posting my predictions for all to see. I think the top three (in no particular order) will be Chris Daughtry, Taylor Hicks and Kellie Pickler. Kellie has a lot of charm like Carrie Underwood, I think she can carry a lot of votes. Plus, the chances of the last three being all male are pretty slim.
So there they are. We'll see just how close I get this year.
