The 25 million people who watch the show and have made it a television phenomenon -- that's who.
There are half a dozen who could potentially win this year. Definitely the most talented "Final 13" ever on the show. I really like Casey -- he is just so much fun to watch and so incredibly good. It's like he was born to do this though, admittedly, he doesn't have typical superstar looks. It will be interesting to see how they groom him as the show progresses.
I really liked Pia version of "All by Myself"....I was doumb-founded when Randy told her that she took a of Celine Dione and made it hers. I was like "CELINE DIONE"! wth...Eric Carmen did this song back in 1976 not her. Randy should know that. The song has gone to be one of the "Classic" ballads. Sometime Randy doesn't know what he's talking about!
They all suck. To even go on American Idol makes you worthless IMO. They make them do such random stupid shit on that show like little puppets. The whole FOX NETWORK just needs to be blown up by Muslims. That would make my day.
I have to hear about Paul's damn smile one more time.... Just because he smiles and does goofy things when he sings doesn't make him a good singer! Can't stand him! BLEGH.
I do like Thia, Lauren, and Pia though. Thia gave a great performance last week with "Out Here On My Own" that gave me goosebumps. This week I think the arrangement she did of "Smile" was perhaps not the best, but I'm still rooting for her. Lauren has also been very strong throughout the competition but it seemed like she was holding back a bit this week with "Any Man of Mine"... I wanted her to really get into it and give us more attitude. And Pia has been consistently amazing.
