It seems like every year I'm drawn to the "boys" side of things on American Idol. Now don't get me wrong, there are some very talented young women this season - but the boys are gettin' it done for me (and Kelli).
Don't know if it's the rocker thing or that Aussie accent, but WHOA - Michael Johns is at the top of my list. Tuesday night was 80's night and Michael performed Don't You Forget About Me by Simple Minds.
Another rocker that's moved into contention on my list is David Cook. Here was Tuesday night's 80's performance of Hello by Lionel Richie.
And then there's Kelli's favorite since day one - Jason Castro. He won me over with this rendition of a favorite of mine - Jeff Buckley's Hallelujah.
And finally, there's this little sweetie who will probably win the whole thing. Seventeen years old and an awesome voice - David Archuleta singing Another Day in Paradise by Phil Collins. Even though I go more for the rocker boys, I just wanna squeeze this one!!
All I can say is that the girls have their work cut out for them tonight, after last night's performances by the guys. Last year, I had a clear cut favorite from the very first night. This year, it's tougher - just a great variety of talent.
