Has Idol Ever Been This Stacked Since ABC Switch (Or at least since Maddie's wins) in American Idol Posted 22 hours ago 41 minutes ago, m1key said: I think this season has had one of the best Live Show Casts since Season 11. That being said, the season itself doesnt come close to Season 11 at all because of the Comeback Twist, Caleb/Benson/Wyatt/Hannah drama, and the meh format. Ive even noticed a parallel between this seasons Top 4 and S11's Top 4 (Chayce - Phillip Phillips, Grace - Jessica Sanchez, Willie - Joshua Ledet, Casey - Hollie Cavanagh). I mean i care more about the contestants than the format. i wish the format was better, but i still think its a good season. also, unlike season 11, i think most of the top 10 are strong. For the drama, caleb got sent home, and i think it was the right decision, so i dont think thats a bad thing. no clue who bensen is. wyatt just dropped out for personal reasons. not exactly "drama." and need to know more about hannah drama. I don't think those comparisons are the best. The Phillip-chayce comparison is valid. IMO, Grace is much more fun and entertaining to listen to and watch then Jessica and their genres are different. I like Willie more than Joshua. Also, I like Hollie more than Casey and their genres are different.
