First week of the finalists, of top thirteen in American Idol… (BTW remember I posted an article on where to follow American Idol contestants on Twitter) and it has left the first elimination. Right out of the gates I have to say America got it right. The pitchiest of the thirteen finalists left the show.
What can I take out from this:
1- Scotty McCreery started singing Baby lock the doors and turn the lights down low… well, turn the lights back on to see the birth of a country superstar. He has all the chops. He´s a consumated country singer and deserves to win it all. But even if he Scotty McCreery does not win American Idol, I can bet he´ll have one of the biggest careers out of the thirteen (and perhaps even if you enlarge the list with past alums. He´ll be top ten ever probably).
2- Luckily Karen Rodriguez will get a rebounding chance after a not so good performance.
3- Pia is the real deal
4- Stefano Langone is a guy I like. Don´t know why, he just seems to be a good fellow. He can also sing quite well too.
5- Ashton Jones was eliminated from American Idol and while she´s a good singer, her performance last night endangered her a lot.
6- Casey Abrams might get eliminated from American Idol if he can´t recover. Ryan Seacrest announced today he wouldn´t be joining the show because he had to go to the hospital. It´s the second time there. Should he call it quits?
7- Haley was on the bottom three and I wouldn´t have pictured her there after last night.
8- Thia is very much liked by the audiences. What´s not to like about her? So far I could not pinpoint anything that rubs me the wrong way with her.
9- Naima is good, she´s solid; I get it… I´m just not on the bandwagon yet.
10- Paul… that´s a bandwagon I´m on. It´s time for the quirky version of Rod Stewart to become a star. He definitely has tons of charisma.
11- Jacob… this is some character. He can sing very well, but will he win American Idol? Not sure, but he´s top five material to say the very least
12- James Durban… talk about some hype… I don´t want the next Adam Lambert so close to the first one… variety is key. We all saw Lambert come as a nice surprise last season… this season Durban is more of the same. Not his fault… just timing.
13- Lauren will be an underdog in my eyes… that´ll probably mean I´ll end up rooting for her. “Rudy, Rudy, Rudy!”
What did you think about American Idol first elimination of Ashton Jones? Is she the one who needed to go?
