AMERICAN IDOL 2009

Now that we are down to the final 10 for the 2009 American Idol season, I thought it would be fun to post my fav's up to this point. (in no particular order) First up, Kris Allen. He has that face that every girl loves and has the voice to back it up as well. His smile would make you melt not to mention the fact that he is an incredible ballad singer. Love his shy and shaky demeanor. I also love that funky thing he does when holding the microphone up top with his thumb. You guys all know what I mean - you've seen it, right? Rumor has it, he is from Arkansas and recently married about 5 months ago. What a sweetheart. Love the "do" too.

Next up, Allison Iraheta. This girl is a mixture of Pat Benatar and Janis Joplin. Two of my all time fav's! She reminds me of Amanda from last year. Love her funky style - love the way she rocks it out like no one is watching and I love that raspy tone to her voice. She definitely has sass and I just adore her music. She sounds just like something I'd have playing on my ipod day in and day out.


And lastly...but definitely not least...Adam Lambert. Adam reminds me of a souped up version of David Cook from last season. Little edgier, little more out there. Way over the top in a good way. It's his out of the box style that I'm crazy about. I'm not overly crazy about the jet black hair but I like that he dares to be different. Take that black out of his hair and I guarantee you that there are some "looks" to him too. His smile and his eyes prove that. And...if you watch him close enough, he even does a lip thing with the corner of his mouth that exudes "Elvis Presley." Too fun!

So...there you have it. My three fav's for the season. Who are your favorites? Who do you think will win this year? I'm off to our old stomping grounds (Center Grove territory) tonight for a quick errand with Brent and the kids after a very busy two days. (Alas my absence yesterday and most of today) I'll jump back into the swing of things tomorrow here on the blog. Completed AGD orders going out and preparations for our vacation departure next Thursday are kicking my butt. I'll be back shortly though...

Enjoy Idol tonight. We can't wait to get back home this evening and watch.
xoxoxo, Angie
PS...I'm extremely behind on emails. Please bare with me. I hope to get caught up by the end of the week. If you've emailed me recently, I'm not ignoring you. Look for a reply from me very soon. :)

Hey, had to weigh in....Adam is also among my 'favorites'. Here's the scoop.....its Axl Rose with vocal ability. Think I'm kidding? Close your eyes on rock week when he wails on the higher notes. It's Axl. My husband didn't buy it....he's a die hard G&R fan (shake and bake baby! ha) and agreed after he heard him sing.

Country week left us a little amused, but we think he's gonna have some good stuff coming up!

P.S. Have a special place in my heart for the visually impaired guy, too.

My top 3 would have to be:
Adam, Matt & Kris.

Danny is good too, Allison is very good but I don't think either of them will make it to the very end.

Megen, Anoop, Lil, Scott & Michael all seem very boring. Very good vocals on different weeks but just boring in general. Megen, Lil & Michael all have this nervous habit when they are on stage, they just don't seem 100% comfortable on stage.

Again just my opinion people! Don't hate the player, hate the game!!! LOL!!

Take Care-

Heather...too funny. I do like Danny but he isn't really grabbing me artistically. I think most are playing off "his story" and are fond of him because of that. (the story of loosing his wife) It's so very sad and I adore him for his strength and just how much he seemed to love her. In the end though, he hasn't captured me as a fan as far as the talent goes. Who knows - he may win it all. However, these were just my top three picks if I were choosing them. What a great group of artists this season though. Makes all the guessing so much more fun to watch.

Hugs girl...

Those are some of my top favs too! But I have to say I text votes for Kris like a million times because he is from my church! Love him!! Isn't he just the cutest thing ever!!! Him and his with are so cute to me. And yes he does have that shy thing, at church it took him a while to warm up. He is awesome, I think he just needs to sing like no one is watching. Kinda like how I belt it out in the car!! haha


When are the spring styles coming out? I'm dying to order!!

Adam is at the top of my list...boy, he can get up there! Love his true to his self attitude too.

Gokey's got my number two spot. I've kinda forgotten about his story. What I like is that he seems to pick perfect songs and I don't have to worry about bad singing from him.

Third is Megan. Now, she's not the best singer, but I just love her quirkiness and I totally dig her unusual voice.

I hate that Kris is not in my top three because he is great and I love his sweetness as well as his shyness.

Hi Angie, Well, I do like all your picks but I have to say I am loving Danny Gokey! He is just adorable! He sings great and has seems to have such a fun personality. I don't know who will win but I'm sure Adam, Danny, Allison, Matt and Kris will definitely be in the top 5....what do you think? Allison has such a strong and unique voice for her age, she's amazing!

yep...lovin' adam!! lots of good ones in the top 10 this year...i love the innocence of scott too...he can jam out on the piano & sing...i don't think he can make it into the top 4/5, but still really, really admire him & love his attitude...

wes said the same thing about adam last night...he reminds him of elvis!!

Angie, I not sure if this is just a "relative' thing or not, but Audrey Hepburn has always been one of my favorites but then again so is Ann Margaret. As far as American Idols goes, those three are my favorite as well only maybe in the order of Adam ( even though he is a very centric i.e black fingernail polish) Allison and then Kris. Kris reminds of the "cute everyday guy next door look " I'm sure there are lots of young ladies out there wishing he wasn't married. Allison is amazing especially to only be 16 years old. I see her cutting a record deal she along with Adam have very Unique talent.

I had to laugh last night after Megan sang! I like her and her quirkiness, but as I was packing stuff from my kitchen, I was listening, but not watching. I just kept thinking, "This is a train wreck!" That phrase kept popping into my head. Then Randy was the 1st to say anything, and he said something to the effect of, "Dude, that was a TRAIN WRECK!"
I guess Randy is just very intelligent! HAHA!

I love Danny; I like Adam, but think he needs to loose the affectations of the nail polish, black hair and the make-up.

I like Scott, but I agree that he won't make it too far.

I'm not a real rock fan, but Allison has it goin' on!!

Lil was way too "screamy" this week. She is better than that.

There's my $0.02!

Well, we agree on the same three, Angie, but not quite in the same order. This week, I like Allison and Adam the most and then Kris. I just got done watching Michael get the boot and I pretty much knew it was coming. I wasn't shocked that Scott was in the bottom three either. I don't get the lovin' for him. He's only okay to me. I feel the same about Danny and Megan - okay but not a future American Idol. I was soooooooo disappointed in Lil this week - certainly expected a way better performance from her. My heart really wants Kris to be the winner because his personality seems so sweet, like he'd be the guy you'd want to hang out with of everybody but there is no denying that Allison and Adam have talent. The song that Adam sang last night would be a number one hit if it was recorded.
wow, that was a lot of information. sorry about that!
keep counting down the days to the beach. you deserve it!

Although I like the ones you pick, I love Danny. He has such soul and he is believable when he sings. He is effortless. He is a christian for sure so anyone who is a christian I would love for kids to look up to as the next American Idol. Adam is good and I think talented but not exactly what I would consider a American Idol.
