American Idol Season 18 Premiere Countdown: Bobby Bones Day

Recommended Posts

Riley Thompson wasn't that great. She was a Carrie Underwood wannabe. She was trying too hard to sound and be like Carrie Underwood, but Riley Thompson will never be as good as Carrie Underwood is. Plus, Riley Thompson's voice just really needed to mature. Dimitrius Graham and Uche Ndubizu were overall good.

Uche was good, I liked him.

 

Riley needed more time but she has the look. Eddie Island is terrible.

 

I knew I wasn't the only one who thought Eddie Island was one of the worst contestants ever on American Idol. Katy Perry only put him through because she thought he was funny. She didn't care that he was a bad singer. If Simon Cowell was there as a judge that season, Eddie Island wouldn't have made it during the audition round and if he managed to make it through the audition round, he definitely without a doubt wouldn't have made the Top 40 let alone the Top 20. Also, American Idol is not a beauty contest. You need to have the look and the voice. Riley Thompson didn't have the voice and that's a fact. Another contestant that wouldn't have made it past the Hollywood Week round if Simon Cowell was judging that season. Riley Thompson's voice really needed a lot of time to mature.

She shockingly got worse in S17. She had a nice voice but couldn’t emote at all.

Sadly Alyssa’s voice was very generic. Her runs were smooth and she had a nice tone but the whole season made it clear that she’s basic. She never topped her ABC Season 1 audition of Almost is Never Enough.

I never really cared for him. His first audition was charming but I think he stayed in the competition a little too long.

Walker is such a sweetie. Not sure what to make of Alyssa's Idol run... Bland and disappointing sums it up...

 

 

6 DAYS BOOM FIYAH. 🥳

I love Walker :wub: I feel like he had a solid start but lost his way during the live shows. Maybe he didn't want it as badly as he thought, missing home, etc.

 

Alyssa is very good and talented, but very boring and something is missing? She never had entertaining performances and just nothing stood out for her to be a star, for me.

This performance along with the many others and his audition last season is why Laine Hardy won American Idol.

And tomorrow's contestant will be the best one of that whole season: Laine Hardy.


I realize you have a hard-on for Hardy but he is not tomorrow’s contestant and, even if he was, today belongs to Jeremiah.

The most upsetting elimination for me since Pia’s robbery in 9th place. Jeremiah should have been in the Final 3, at least.

I don’t have a hard on for Laine Hardy. I just think he’s really talented. I like girls anyway so.

As good as he was, he wasn’t main stream enough to move on. And Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon was playing it safe a little bit. No risks. He didn’t even do a real rock song like Dream On by Aerosmith. Had Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon done a song like that, he might have made Top 3 last season.

I agree that Pia Toscano was robbed though and should have made it into at least the Top 4 or 5 of American Idol Season 10.

Well I'm looking forward to more AI, but hope this group (Whoever they maybe...) doesn't end up with beef with each other...
