My cable station lied to me. It said we would know the top 20 tonight, but instead we got the top 24 and we start voting next week with 12 boys and 12 girls. Sorry for the misinformation in my previous Idol post.
Right now, I’m leaning toward the 17 year old with the Randy Travis voice, Scotty, and the kooky bass player, Casey. I think it unlikely that they will go on to win but I like them anyway. Loads of talent in those two. I didn’t catch his name but the young man with the super soft voice is also interesting. I loved the duet he did on Beatles night.
The only girl who’s caught my attention at this early date is the gal with the curly blond hair (and tonight the pink cowboy boots). I think her name is Lauren but wouldn’t bet the farm on it.
I was hoping the American Idol web site would have the finalists’ names and photos up as soon as the show was over, but I guess it isn’t done showing on the west coast yet. Maybe tomorrow.
Some years in the past, I think the judges let through some less than stellar singers because of quirky personalities. I suppose they did it for ratings or controversy ploys. I didn’t see any low-talents in this group of 24. Will any of them be worthy of the “vote for the worst” bunch?
