Crisis On Hand: An American Idol Finalists Ranking List in American Idol Posted July 3, 2020 · Edited July 3, 2020 by Crisis 1 hour ago, miss denise said: Aw, I missed where you weren't feeling well, but glad to hear you're better now. 100. Emily Piriz: She was my favorite of the season and what was disappointing to me about her journey was just how short it was! I didn't have an issue with "Let's Get Loud", but I get your points and it was my least favorite of hers. I loved and was obsessed with her version of "Stars" from Hollywood! I really hoped the judges would save her, especially with her singing that song again. She did have so much potential and ugh, that season was not my favorite. 099. DeAndre Brackensick: DeAndre was also one of my favorites of the season. I loved his voice so much and was so impressed with his falsetto. Aw, I thought "Georgia On My Mind" was one of his stronger performances, but I agree with your other favorites. I didn't know he released an album but am curious to check it out! 098. Katie Stevens: My biggest favorite after Aaron that season, so disappointed she was cut so early. I loved her voice and thought she was coming into her own. The misleading critiques from the judges was confusing.... I always saw her as a pop R&B singer and loved her voice in that genre, but I did have a random moment of hearing a similarity in her tone to Danielle Bradbery, who sings country. "Big Girls Don't Cry" was one of my favorites of hers, and I thought all her best performances were in the finals. I've been watching her as the lead on The Bold Type for years now, so I almost associate her with that now more than Idol, even though of course I know where she got her start. It's so weird for me to remember that while watching the show. 097. Madison VanDenburg: She probably has one of the most disappointing journeys on the show for me. I LOVED her audition and thought she was amazing, but then never really got that from her again. I'm sure I enjoyed some of her performances later on, but I honestly don't remember them. She was still probably my third favorite of the season, but I also can't think of everyone It's weird how my memory is worst on the most recent seasons. And LOL at how every week was "finally" the time she would connect with a song. 096. Dimitrius Graham: I never really took notice of him for some reason. He has a good voice, but I guess I didn't connect with him. I have ideas for two of the clues. I had a grueling homework assignment that frustrated me to no end. I managed to finish it, but I was so mentally tired I pretty much went straight to bed after my last post of the evening. I'm much better now, thank you. 100. Yeah, it was disappointing how short her journey was; I definitely expected her to go farther than she did. It shows how crucial songs choices are. If anyone was save worthy that saving, it was probably her. 099. For Georgia On My Mind, I thought he overused the falsetto. As I mentioned in my write-up, however, as much as I didn't like it, it was still one of the better performances that round, so I actually didn't mind him being picked. As for his album, I only listened to a couple of tracks, but I liked what I've heard. If you're into neo-soul, it's worth a listen. 098. She did appear to be coming into her own when she was eliminated. Yeah, it was something watching the judges argue over who she should be as an artist. Agreed about seeing her as a pop R&B singer. As I said, Simon completely checked out that season, so who knows what the heck he was doing. 097. I find it funny some of us don't remember much about the more recent seasons. As for Madison, the main thing I remember was her smiling in every performance, hence the running gag of it being the week she finally connects to a song. With that said, she has a tremendous upside; just needed more experience. 096. Fair enough about him. It didn't help he was so inconsistent and appeared to have no idea where he wanted to take a song. With that said, he really did have an impressive voice. Well, the set is up now, we'll see if your ideas are correct or not... That was fast! Enjoy your trophy!
