A Decent Top 10 on Idol? Color Me Shocked!

What is that? America actually got it right?

That’s my reaction to the Top 10 on Idol’s Season 12, and I actually like all of the choices! It took, what… 12 years? 🙂

I already have some faves:


Of the Girls, … there’s something about Amber Holcomb (pictured)! I think she’s a real dark horse.  Great potential in her voice and totally cute dimples! Candice Grove definitely has the vocal chops over her, but this might be a repeat of Melinda Doolittle (Candice) at the forefront, with the young Jordin Sparks (Amber) taking it to the finish line.  Of course, I can’t count out Kree or Angela, who are very very good at what they do! Great group of female vocalists this season!

Of the Guys, … I’ve already moved on from my Side-Idol Lazaro to… wait for it… Burnell (what a voice!). I hope he goes far, and then Devin, wow! He’s also amazing at what he does!

Naturally, none of them compare to the one and only David, but at least I’m liking what I’m hearing (finally!).

I’m loving this quick cut from Top 20 to Top 10. That happened so fast, and I absolutely love this format of going behind-the-scenes to introduce each finalist to the audience, and especially having each contestant sing a “victory song” with no pressure. Well played!

Wish David was watching so he could weigh in on Twitter. (Sigh)

Oh, my Beloved! Nothing Compares 2 U!
