  1. I think that I wasn’t too fond of Adam from the start and I’m not sure if it was because I didn’t like his shrieking even before “Ring Of Fire”, but I do believe that it was on that song that I began to be so annoyed by his shrieking that I’d be ready to vote for anyone but him!
  2. I won’t be guessing the clues, but I will be commenting on the contestants: 1. This is a pretty good spot for Carly. She was very good but not consistent enough to get close to the finale. 2. You probably hit the reason why I couldn’t stand Adam, or at least one of the main reasons: his shrieking. I couldn’t stand it and by the Final 4, I was ready to vote for anyone but Adam! I still cringe whenever I think of his performances! 3. I liked LaKisha. Not as much as Melinda or even Jordin, however. 4. I think Joshua was somewhat overrated by the judges, but this is still a good spot for him 5. I like Phillip more now, but at the time I was rooting for Jessica and the fact that he beat her totally devastated me.
  3. Here’s my comments on the rankings: 1. This was a good spot for Michael. He began well but apparently faded. 2. Kimberly was a bit more of a performer than a singer. 3. Janelle was the weakest vocalist among the women but she still did well. This ranking is about right. 4. I do wish Michael had been saved because of Idol Gives Back. I wonder why they didn’t save him. 5. Sigh. Sarina-Joy was my favorite from Season 14. I was so disappointed when she stumbled so badly and was eliminated without being saved only to save Qaasim the following week. Darned equipment malfunction! I think that I lost much of my interest in Season 14 after that.
  4. Here’s my comments on the rankings: 1. Jena — I was never much of a fan of hers, although I never hated her. 2. I liked Diana although I liked her more after LaToya was gone. 3. I’d actually have ranked Alex behind Jena, but you’re not too far off. 4. Michael’s Achilles heel was up-tempo songs. But I still liked him. 5. I’d have ranked Casey below Michael. And I wouldn’t have saved him either. I’d have waited to save Pia.
  5. Olivia didn’t make the Top 10, so she’s fine. But I’d advise her to wait until the Top 20 can perform live since she did so badly when she had to perform from home.
  6. I’d actually have ranked Matt Giraud below Amber, Anwar and Siobhan. Also, I preferred Amber to Janelle, but the rankings are otherwise pretty good.
  7. Here’s my comments about the rankings: R.J. wasn’t a horrible contestant but he wasn’t the best singer by a longshot. This was a pretty good ranking for him. Joey was certainly unique, what with her accordion. Unfortunately, there’s such a thing as being too unique, and she was that. I remember Rickey’s “Hercules” bit. He was good but not great. I agree that the Twitter Save was dumb. But I thought that the “Tweet Tweet” clue referred to Megan Joy, who sang “Rockin Robin”, not Rayvon! Uche was also a unique contestant (for his season) who was more of an entertainer than a singer. And he chose a poor song on Disney Night.
  8. The one who wasn’t present at elimination has to be Christina. I think that I began watching the show around the time she was eliminated. I thought that R.J. should have gone before her, but if the competition took such a huge toll on her health, maybe it was just as well she was eliminated then. The ranking is about right. The forgotten diva is most likely Stephanie. I liked her but not as much as Melinda. The ranking is also about right. Gray Charles is probably Taylor. He has gray hair. The ranking is also about right. I never voted for him but I never disliked him either. The fourth clue must refer to David Hernandez. He had the same first name as the winner and the runner up of Season 7. I wasn’t too fond of him and actually would have put him last among my rankings of the Season 7 contestants. That means that the final clue must refer to Alexis. I’d actually have put her higher than David Hernandez, but this is close enough. Sadly, while she tried to stand out, one bad song choice did her in. And Adam stole the show.
  9. When I saw the clue about the other blonde country singer, I knew that it referred to Jessica Sierra. She and Carrie (who won) were the blonde country singers of Season 4. Now for my comments on the rankings: I’d have ranked Kristi lower than Jessica Sanchez, but this is a good ranking for her. Hmm, maybe Sonika wasn’t sabotaged by Borchetta into picking songs that caused her to slide backwards. Maybe she just wasn’t confident enough. Oh well, I liked her and after she sang “Bring Me To Life”, I began voting just for her. At least she got to fifth. I’d actually have ranked Melissa lower than Sonika, but this is close enough. As noted, Jessica was the other blonde country singer, and Carrie was just more memorable and better. This is a good spot for Blake. He was a fine performer but not such a good singer. That’s why he had to change his songs up.
  10. I’m a huge Jessica Sanchez fan so I can’t rate her this low! But I respect your opinion and do agree that she could be boring for some.
  11. I think that I remembered Randy giving the advice that season, that’s probably why I thought that he gave bad advice to Majesty.
  12. Sorry I’m a little late with my comments, but here they are: 1. Emily was okay, but “Let’s Get Loud” is better for a dancing competition than a singing one. 2. I don’t have much to say about DeAndre, but he was better than Sanjaya. 3. Katie was my first favorite from Season 9, but she was just too green. I’m glad that she’s doing well. 4. Madison was also too green, and she’s no Kelly Clarkson, not yet at least. 5. Beginning ““Hello” in an operatic style certainly was memorable! Unfortunately, Dimitrius was too inconsistent.
  13. I wonder if the pigeon-holing that you suggested played a role in Majesty going off the rails the way she did. Maybe she was being encouraged to be a belter and not a singer-songwriter, and that was her downfall.
  14. Here’s my comments: 1. Lee: one of my least favorite winners of American Idol. He was better than Nick, though. And I wanted Crystal to win. 2. Burnell — I don’t know which is funnier — Lazaro’s meltdown during the train wreck that was “I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch)”, or Burnell deciding just to enjoy the ride because he knew that there was no way for anybody to save the performance. 3. Adanna — this is possibly the right spot for her. 4. Laine — he wasn’t my favorite winner, but he was a better singer than Alejandro. 5. Majesty — sigh. She was my favorite from her season, but she made one terrible song choice (and an even worse decision to sing it straight instead of rearranging it), and she never recovered. I wonder if someone thought that she was a more powerful vocalist than she was.
