I like all of these three performers, especially Crystal. I wish they allowed the contestants to sing original material, though. It would make the show more fresh (but I'm sure they have their reasons why they don't allow that). :-(
If you like Crystal, and haven't listened to her performing her own material, go to YouTube, and type the words Crystal Bowersox Farmer's Daughter. I am really impressed with the caliber of songwriting on this song!
Knowing the expectations of the winner from past seasons, Crystal would be much better off being voted for a second or third place finish. Just my opinion.
Crystal and Siobhan are the Top 2 of this year's Idols by far. I can see the Final 2 between them if they stay true to themselves and keep improving. That being said, I would like to see Crystal step "outside the box." She is great, but sounds the same actually each week. That is good, but...remember past years when this has happened. Chris Daughtry is a good example of what I am trying to say.
Diversity keeps people interested. People may start to "assume" that certain contestants are safe week to week and not vote and they end up going home.
very true. I still dont understand what happened with Daughtry, though. I mean, when I tried to call & vote the line was busy the entire time. My son voted for the other contestant and got through immediately. I personally think the phone lines got jammed for Daughtry, so he lost.
I remember that. If you can remember...Elliot Yamin was probably in danger of going home from the Top 4. Elliot gave an unbelievable performance and Chris was...well the same as usual. I still think people voted "to save" Elliot and some of those votes cost Daughtry.
The final 2 that year was the worst of the AI seasons.
