    the thing is, Adele doesn't/doesn't have to do all the vocal gymnastics in order to 'sing good' that seems to be requisite on AI and other talent contests. This is why all the AI versions will pale in comparison.

    i looked at it as:

    they are such non opinionated sheep... one says it's good, they all say it's good. one says it's wrong song choice, they all say it... jimmy iovine says they sucked, they say, oh yeah, he's right, they weren't that good.....

    that's been randy's MO from day 1... but it was just him.. now they all feed off each other.

    have an opinion... jeez...

    I think Jessica is going to take the whole thing - definitely head and shoulders above everyone else.

    I also liked Joshua and Erika.

    I think Heejun is adorable, and he's the NYC boy so I gotta throw some love there.

    I don't understand Phillip at all - I hated his performance.

    I think Jessica may be a front runner until she blows her voice out :D

    All in all I think it is a strong season- there are a couple of 'what the what?' contestants that I simply do not get (Jermaine and Jeremy) and a few whose styles are not to my taste, but not much fodder beyond that.

    I think Heejun will run his course quickly- I enjoy him a good deal but know he isn't the strongest singer.

    So I guess I'm the only one getting this?

    Jeremy is excellent. I rank him above Heejun, Deandre, Jermaine, and Colton. I think he also has a more versatile voice than Phillip but that is a hard comparison to make because they are so different. Now the others may have more personality and stage presence but I would argue that they have better voices.

    All I have to do is watch this clip again to be convinced. Notice the tasteful use of Falsetto, something Deandre has not learned.

    I agree about Jeremy but this is Idol and if he's not crush worthy or doesn't have some sappy back story then he's not getting the votes no mater how good he is. Sad but true.

    Jessica has made such an impact on me that I had to go look up which one was Jessica.

    The point being that maybe you are right but as of this moment she is completely forgettable. Another decent diva-esque singer who may or may not jump to the front of the pack now that the playing field has been whittled down.

    Which didn't change the fact I had to go look up which one she is.

    Very sad that Jenn didn't make it into the top 10/13.

    I was surprised Hallie Day didn't make the cut. i thought her performance was top 3. Glad Erika made the wildcard.
