Default American Idol Season 7

I admit it. I've been watching and enjoying it. I think a dude's going to win it this year. Probably Michael Johns or David Cook.

Anyone else watching this and have any thoughts?

I had a feeling Archuleta would bomb this week because I don't think he has the energy or the balls to kick it up a notch and let it all out. That being said, it'll be another week of the Lennon/McCartney songbook next week, so he may go do-or-die and pull out a new rendition of Yesterday.

Brooke White is good, but not great enough to be a recording artist, so I don't think she'll be lasting that much longer. I think the Irish girl may last more rounds.

Those guys are good. I like the Irish gal too.

Some of those versions of Beatles songs were pretty bad.

For the first time I'm finding it kind of annoying that they criticize them for song choice and arrangement, yet that's not what they're there for. They're there to sing not become master producer/arrangers and once they win they have absolutely no artistic license or control anyway.

Good point Acie, I agree.

I think Idol fans are getting spoiled because there have been a few talented contestants over the years that have been able to make their own arrangements. Some have had extensive musical training.

But people like Brooke White are proving you can just go out and sing the song with some heart and it can still be appreciated. I'm just not sure how far that can carry you in a competition like this.

David Castro is really growing on me. Didn't really notice him at first, but I think he has the potential to sell some CD's in the future.

It's a good year. I like how Brooke and David Cook and Castro(who I still don't like that much regardless) are almost expanding the show... in the past you'd have all the contestants singing in David Archuleta "good karaoke" style, but now you have people actually feeling the songs, these guys are authentic music lovers and musicians.

I think Brooke, David Cook, Carly will be the final 3. Brookie wins.

On a side note, I don't think Hernandez should've gone this week... he was bad, but Kristy Lee and Syesha/Ramielle(not so much bad as just zzz) were worse, and Hernandez had been good enough up to this point(his Papa Was a Rolling Stone was one of the best so far this year IMO) that it was pretty wrong for him to go this early.

Is that the guy with the dreads? He's got to stop thinking he's so cute and batting his eyelashes, wash his hair and come out and let it rip.

The girl who did Eight Days A Week is gone next week for sure. The Janis Joplin wannabe won't last very long either. She's be great for a classic rock cover band, but not as a pop star.

I've been really struggling with Brooke White.

I like her personality and her appeal. Musically, I don't think she's that talented, but that's not always the determining factor. I try imagining listening to an entire CD of a particular person while driving in my car, and whether or not I could sit through the whole CD. I think for Brooke, I'd last 4 tracks. But I really do like her.

The Joplin girl (Amanda) is good, but in terms of 'rock' artists in the competition, she can't stand up to the others. Plus, her personality is on life-support. Sometimes when she's singing, her glare scares me.

Archuletta's probably going to win. I would love for Brooke to win ... I really like her. And I totally want to get her rendition of Let It Be ... hers was one of my favourite versions of that song (aside from the original, and the version from the soundtrack of Across the Universe). Mega girl crush on her. She's brilliant.

Irish chick is also quite good. I don't see Michael John making it very far unless he comes up with a really good performance ... I'm a fan of his, but his singing has been crap as of late.

Brooke White should win. She's got superstar written all over her.

Regardless of whether she's voted off or not, she will be a recording artist on a major.

his rendition of "imagine" was really good.
but thats the best he's got and he'll go down from here on out.

my favorite is brooke white... shes talented, and looks like a real sweet girl.
the irish tatoo chick is good too.
