I can't seem to help it but I gotta get this off me, I feel that I must have an American Idol post. I guess every blogger who follows the show does. Although in my opinion, this year's batch is not as wonderful as the previous seasons, I still have a few favorites that I wish would make it to the top three.
And my top three bets for this season of American Idol are:

I loved this lady since the eliminations. I think among the contestants, she is the most talented with her ability to play the guitar and the harmonica at the same time, she's simply fantabulous. This lady's has a bright future ahead of her. I loved her interpretation of Carol King's Natural Woman and I couldn't agree more when the judges said that she is infectious. Another thing that I really like about her is that she looks like Drew Barrymore.
The waitress who dreams of becoming the next American Idol. I think the idea of her fairy tale story is simply appealing because it adds a certain drama. But no doubt, the girl has talent. Like Crystal, Didi is an early favorite of mine.
His performance last week just left me breathless and dreaming in lala-land. Apparently, He has all it takes to be a star that makes girls go mad, mad, mad. Casey James is so gorgeous, Cara is right, he's an eye candy and ear candy too. Among the twelve men, he has the best performance last Thursday. Here's the video again.
