Crisis On Hand: An American Idol Finalists Ranking List in American Idol Posted July 17, 2020 5 hours ago, Bk1234 said: You are forgiven. After all, it’s just a ranking and you’re doing a very good job at it! Also, I’m surprised you didn’t notice anything weird about my response to Archie being ranked. Archie- Anyway, in terms of David’s performance on the show, I thought he had an amazing run! “Imagine” is one of my favorite Idol performances of all-time! “Stand By Me” and “Angels” were also great. I do have to agree with you on his up-tempo performances. Most weren’t that great, but I thought he gave them a good effort. In a realistic ranking (in a not realistic one, he’d be #1 for me) I would have ranked him above Brooke. Post-Idol, Archie has definitely proven to be my favorite Idol alum of all time. I love his voice, I love his music, I like him as a person, he just checks all the boxes! He is also such an inspiration. He went on a religious mission for two years! He also introduced me to the wonderful Madilyn Paige, who is in his song “Seasons.” His latest album, Therapy Sessions, is definitely worth a listen. Jordin- I actually forgot about Jordin and Justin’s version! Anything is better than Jacob’s version though... You’ve gotten my #1 favorite, but as you can see by my signature, there are still two left! Hopefully, they aren’t ranked too soon. Thank heavens! Again, thank you. I had a feeling it might have been a joke; however, I decided to play it safe just in case. As for the real Archie comments (I hope), with everything said, it's makes sense for him to be #1! I knew about his religious mission; I just didn't know how long it was. Just about any horrific sounds was better than Jacob's No Air. It may very well be my least favorite Idol performance of all time, or in the bottom five at least. We'll see where the last two end up! 4 hours ago, x3 because of u said: 045. David Archuleta - Archie! He's practically my age but I still think he's adorable. I would've been fine with either David winning the crown and I really enjoyed his run. 044. Angie Miller - So talented. That top 3 elimination was rough. I had a feeling Candice would make it and then I loved both Angie and Kree so I knew I'd be sad either way. I can't wait to rewatch that season because your writeup just reminded me of all of her great performances. 043. Jordin Sparks - You just killed me. JK, but Jordin is my all-time fave. I have so many amazing memories tied to AI6 and Jordin in particular. I have to disagree with Jordin being the worst on Top 3 night; I felt that Melinda and Jordin were the better ones that night (but I might be biased). Had it been a Jordin/Melinda final two, that would've been a tough call for me. Of course, I still follow Jordin and most recently saw her in Waitress on Broadway. She was phenomenal. 042. Avalon Young - Love her. I wish she would've made it further but I think her style wasn't for everyone. 041. George Huff - I love his voice and personality! I was so happy to see him make it as far as he did, especially being a wildcard. I wish he would've made it further but 5th place was OK for me. 045. It doesn't hurt that it looks like he hasn't aged that much. Fair enough about either David winning the crown. 044. Pretty much agree about the Top 3 elimination being rough. Any of the three had valid claims to be in the finale. 043. I got two #1 favorites in one set. I'm On A Roll! Jokes aside, good to see how supportive you are of her. We'll agree to disagree on Top 3, though a Jordin/Melinda final two would've been nice despite Blake growing on me some over the years. 042. Pretty much agree with everything here. 041. Again, pretty much agree with everything. 3 hours ago, blackfield said: not even close! try again.. season 9 fav was casey. you already seen that. adam was second fav during season 8.. Oh yeah, I forgot Casey was your S9 favorite. So Allison is your S8 fav? After the crap I got for ranking Adam where I did, I thought he would be your favorite. I won't have the next set up until tomorrow at the earliest because I haven't even started the write-ups yet; things are pretty hectic at work today.
