This season, we have a variety of musical styles, personalities, and differences in the American Idol finalist. Not only will this make this season better, but it also gives the finalist a chance to stand out, make themselves distinct from the rest of the finalist.
Let’s review each finalist and talk about their strengths. Yep, no critiques here, only talking about the strengths of each contestant. Get your thinking caps on and let’s play the judges for a moment.
1. Jorge Nuñez – One thing I love about Jorge is his accent. He is different, plus he has fabulous vocals.
2. Megan Corkrey – Corkrey, a favorite of the judges, definitely has a different factor going on. She is relative, as the judges like to say, and does have a great voice.
3. Alexis Grace – Has a sweet personality, powerful vocals, and definite potential. She made her way into the finals easy. Hope she can continue to shine!
4. Lil Rounds – Wow, does she have vocals. She was a favorite as soon as she started singing. This girl is here to win for sure!
5. Jasmine Murray – Jasmine not only has commercial appeal, she has a great personality and has already shown she will do well under pressure. Oh, let’s not forget her powerful voice!
6. Danny Gokey – The guy can sing! He’s had great song choice so far, letting his voice do the talking. Hope he keeps it up!
7. Scott MacIntyre – Love him! He has the ability to get everyone on his side. Great vocals! Can’t wait to see him at the piano. I really hope he finds his grove, as he could become a favorite.
8. Michael Sarver – I liked Michael Sarver from the second we saw him. He has a personality, charisma, and the voice. He definitely should be here in the Finals!
9. Matt Giraud – I was surprised he was even a Wild Card. His voice was great enough that he should have been an easy pick into the Finals. Hope American gives his vocals justice. The guy can sing!
10. Allison Iraheta – Allison Iraheta brings something different to American Idol. She is quirky, and has major vocals. Can’t wait to hear songs that let her sing her range.
11. Kris Allen – Another favorite from the beginning. I think he has the ability to sway American Idol viewers!
12. Anoop Desai – He has such charisma and likability. Anoop is another I really hope picks great songs. Because I think he has the potential to really surprise American!
13. Adam Lambert – Lambert is different, but is is all good. He has a voice that can really get us on our feet, cheering him on. Boy, can he sing. Loving his song choice so far!
