Crisis On Hand: An American Idol Finalists Ranking List in American Idol Posted June 28, 2020 2 hours ago, ~Tom~ said: 115. Lisa Tucker - I loved I Am Changing, but it was pretty much all downhill from there. Even performnces like Signed Sealed Delivered that the judges liked were pretty pedestrian. 114. Sam Woolf - A very bland WGWG from my least favorite season. So bland in fact that the judges had to use their save on him when he should've been a vote magnet and tried additional shenanigans to keep him more. 113. Dalton Rapattoni - Stylistically he was interesting but I agree with you that the execution was poor a lot of the time. 112. Lauren Alaina - Was pretty boring and mediocre throughout her run. I love country girls but she just coasted her way to the top 2. She also managed to annoy me with her peaches shtick with Ryan which is rare for a contestant to do, so glad you brought that up as well. I wish Simon were there that season; he would've called her out on that as well as her outfits. 111. Amy Adams - Well I liked Sin Wagon but she was kind of forgettable otherwise. 115. Yeah, pretty much agree about Lisa 114. It was ridiculous how often the producers tried to keep him around 113. Not much to say but pretty much agree 112. I initially felt the same way, but she has grown on me some, well at least enough to rank her higher than where she would've been at first 111. It's easy to see how someone could feel that way about her 23 minutes ago, ~Tom~ said: 110. Josh Gracin - I thought he couldn't return for the finale because of personal issues? (his suicide attempt) But yeah while he gave a vouple decent country performances, he was a trainwreck a lot of the time. Celebration, That's When I'll Stop Loving You, and Ain't Goin' Down Till the Sun Comes Up are three of the biggest messes that season. 109. CJ Harris - I loved Can't You See, but he was a pitchy mess the rest of the time. 108. Gina Glocksen - Always disliked Gina. She shoulted he way through Alone and Call Me When You're Sober and while her last two performances were better, I always thought she should've been a singer from the get-go, not a rocker. 107. Scotty McCreery - Despite his monotonous performances, he was actually my favorite of the season since Naima, Pia and Jacob ended up disappointing, or in the case of the earlier two, getting robbed. I love his classic country sound as well as the music he's put out post-Idol. Definitely a worthy winner over Lauren. 106. Alejandro Aranda - I didn't watch a lot of season 17, but I haed every performance of his that I did see. 110. It looks like @Elliott explained his reason for not being in the finale. Other than that, I pretty much agree about him 109. Unfortunately, he was a pitchy mess throughout his time on the show 108. Yeah, I was never convinced she was a rocker. I completely agree about Call Me When You're Sober. I couldn't believe it when she was praised for it 107. He wasn't my pick to win, but I definitely preferred him over Lauren at the time 106. This appears to be a popular opinion about Alejandro 21 minutes ago, Elliott said: afaik, he never attempted suicide. He just posted weird status on FB that everyone interpreted that way and the police were called. But that also happened after the S15 finale. He pulled out a few days before because they wouldn’t give him a solo slot to perform an original. It’s why Ace was randomly in the country performance. I thought his post had something to do with him being bummed out about his impending divorce, yet it was somehow thought to be a suicide note. With Ace, Constantine, and Diana, the country medley sure had some random performers in it. Barring anything new, my next post should have the new set.
