Louis isnt even comparable to Julia based on pure VOCAL talent and technique, which is what @bswanson is talking about. If you like him as a performer or singer thats fine, but vocally they cant be compared. 

 

I agree 1 million % . Not shocked about Louis & Julia going. My faves usually go at 6 or 7. Julia's vocals are immensely above Louis's. Her vocal tone is so gorgeous

That font comes into the spoiler threads and says that every week so I'm sure he is trolling at this point. 

That font? Or that poster? 🕵️‍♂️

He is not the chosen one though. Francisco clearly is. They are pulling out all the stops for him to win. Arthur is just really popular with the audience.

 

Yes. Francisco is the chosen one. The sound engineering for him was top of the line, compared to all the rest ..  especially when compared to the horrible mixing of Julia's Disney song. It was like 2 different sound people. I mean … you couldn't even hear her 1st few notes, above the loud music, and her vocals were never above the sound level of the music, at any point during the song. . And … the pimping of Francisco is more than Arthur. It's not as if Francisco isn't good, but he is also an emotional wreck, in front of live audiences. It's just obvious, who the chosen one is

I wouldn't mind a Nepali immigrant with a heavy accent winning American Idol,  would be a nice change.

 

Same. He is a unique contestant, and I do like him (from what I've seen of him), as a person. He has an easeful, joyful vibe about him.  I have 4 of my initial & ongoing faves in the top 5 (signed up on their fan pages, right after their auditions). So … if Sam, Dillon, Arthur or Jonny make it …. then, cool beans!!!!

 

As for my top fave, Julia … I can see her having an amazing career in front of her. She expanded her fan base, by being on Idol.  To be writing the kind of lyrics that she does, at age 21 ….  and her voice …  her piano playing... and yes, she is ga-gorgeous! Looking forward, to whatever she puts out. and … Maybe Brandi Carlisle, will take her on tour with her. THAT would be  awesome!!

Maybe it's just me but I don't hate a single person in the entire top 5.  I'm not a fan of Just Sam or Dillon but neither one of them really annoy me.  So far on the ABC version of the show, there seems to always be ONE person who makes it far who I can't stand (Season 1 was Gabby and Season 2 was Madison).  I have my favorites, Francisco and Arthur.... but I wouldn't necessarily be mad at any of the top 5 winning the show.  I actually wish the group this year had more time to shine because it's the ONLY season so far on ABC that had an overall really strong group of contestants.  I feel like they definitely got cheated.

The narrative that Idol is pushing - is that thanks to the judges and mentor, Francisco's nerves have magically disappeared.  Of course it has more to do with him singing from his home and not in front of a live audience.

This doesn't make him a star, but what have Maddie and Laine done in generating buzz?

Laine was just on tour opening for Tim McGraw.

Hard disagree on Madison, the people I couldn't stand are Gabby in Season 1 and Wade in Season 2.

This season, Dillon/Louis are meh, but I don't dislike them with the same passion I hated Gabby/Wade.

I weakened and looked at this thread. I can’t say that I am surprised.

All my big favorites are gone but I don't really dislike any of the top 5. I could do without all of Sam's crying, it does get old. Maybe I'll vote for everyone

I'll likely be voting for Francisco even though he doesn't stand a chance now since the West Coast won't be voting for the winner (which includes his home state, California).  It'll be interesting to see who wins now since essentially the East Coast and Central time zones will be in charge of choosing lol

Holy crap!!!!!  I did NOT expect them so quickly!  

I did. They were the only contestants to receive anything vaguely resembling criticism from the judges.

Oh, I definitely expected Julia and Louis to be eliminated.  I just didn't expect to find out the official results so early in the week.  🙂

Whoever wins this season most likely won’t be a huge star after the show. 

 

Covid19 ruined that 

 

Really they are just going for the title of American idol winner and guaranteed record deal

Oh. Yeah, that's true. I guess they wanted to give everyone extra time because live voting is coming back which means anyone on the West Coast who wants to vote would have to do it before even "officially" learning which two contestants aren't valid candidates.
