    Well that was fun!
    I could mostly remember everyone but there were a few "Oh yeah... what was his name?"

    There are many of them now making a living in entertainment other than singing- as bad a show as it is it is still an excellent platform for a savvy contestant. If they're smart and understand the power of networking they can parlay the exposure into a career of some sort.

    Well, I wondered how come I had problems being understood all these years. Now I know it's my speech impediment!!!!!

    I thought there was a season or two where I didn't watch, but apparently not - I recognized at least a few people from each season in the posters.

    This year for Mother's Day, among other things I gave my wife a floor ticket to see the 2012 tour (and a second ticket so she can take our daughter - they're both big fans; I mostly just listen from the other room while it's on). They are so excited to go. It'll be my daughter's first time going to a concert.

    This is me too. There wasn't a single season I could name every person on that poster. Some of them like the season Lee won, I don't know most of them by name.

    Awww that was very nice of you!
    I'm nicer because not only did I get my little sister VIP tickets to go but apparently I'll be the one taking her. Not my best thought out present!

    Now I want to hear you speak. :D

    Haha!!

    To be fair, I was paraphrasing myself. When I made my prediction on March 8 many thought she speech impediment. Also, as far as I know it is possible to have an English accent and speech impediment.

    Turns out the story was it's a bad mix of an English and Texas accent that only sounds like a speech impediment on certain words like Pel-fect.

    Anyway, my point was I knew the winner long ago and had a good idea who the#2 idol would be.

    Next year, I'll make sure put spoiler tags on my early uncanny predictions.

    To be honest Johnny most people were raving about Jessica and Phillip in that top 13 thread.

    Here is a sample from the same thread.

    Top 13

    What was interesting was to see many of these people turn on Jessica later on.

    I really felt like the show was pushing for Joshua, so I was pretty shocked when Philip Phillips got it. My wife and I both cheered. I think this will make for a more interesting finale with Jessica for the win.

    We started out predicting Jessica would win, then she kind of faded in the middle and we started liking Elise for awhile. At this point it would be cool if Philip Philips won, simply because he is so different, but I'd be happy for Jessica if she won too.

    For the record, I have NEVER been a Jessica fan.

    P2, I've liked since day one.

    But what do I know - I have a speech impediment. ;)

    Yes but P2 will win, not Jessica. I had Jessica slotted as the possible #2 ;)

    Alright. You're on. I'm going to enjoy eating the burrito those ten bucks get me. Maybe I'll eat it while we complain in here about AI season 15 :)

    Indeed. She was solid early on with "I Will Always Love You" but her breathing (or maybe that annoying low vibrato is intentional) made it really hard to enjoy her.

    She started to sound like a less-than-perfect imitator. When she did IWALY on the finale she sounded great again.
