Posted this in American Idol's forum. Big OOPS moment. S2,3,4,5,6, and 9 do not have original songs in the finals.

Torn between Todd and Brynn - Todd's the most similar to what I'd listen to while driving, but Brynn's is catchy as heck and more similar to what I'd save on Spotify.

OK, I see it’s for winner’s songs. Well, there are a couple people here who would argue she was the winner, but I won’t go there.

I'll be right with you in a few minutes so you can vote for her. Making the Runner Up one now.

But, from that list of songs, I’m going to have to go with “Broken Hearts.”  “Please” is a really good song too, but recency bias is coming in to play. Brynn did well with “Walk My Way,” but it’s honestly not a great song, lyrically.

By a winner? Hmmm... probably Alisan.

 

As much as I want to say Maelyn... I just preferred Alisan's. The lyrics to Maelyn's were cheesy as hell lol. Chevel and Sawyer each get an honorable mention, they were really good.

After thinking too hard about this, I ended up voting for Todd because solid lyrics >> catchiness of the beat for me personally.

I voted Chloe even if her voice was shot during the performance. The song was perfect for her tone.

These original songs have never been the strongest part of a finalist set (they are usually mediocre at best). 

 

I voted for Queen Maelyn simply because I like her voice much more than the others. 👌

I am honestly surprised to see Todd leading the polls. But I can't complain, "Long Way Home" is one of the better ones here. I would also go towards "Broken Hearts" or "Walk My Way."

totally agree, I picked walk my way because its so catchy, but the lyrics themselves... rather underwhelming.

chevel had some meaning behind her song that was much more palpable

I would vote for her, but that was one of my less favorite performances, I think the song didn't do her justice

The more I listen to Long Way Home, the more I love it. Todd really lucked out when he got his song from Songland.

Lauren Duski "Deja Vu" :ph34rwave:

 

but really "Wait For You" takes it.

The only reason I didn't go with that is because it's my least favorite of Maelyn's performances while "Long Way Home" was one of my favorites from Todd; if Lauren were an option she'd be the easy win for me though.

I have the exact same opinion! Maelyn is an ICON but that was unfortunately her worst (doesn't say much tbh, she was totally on pitch, I just didn't feel it too much).

I might be saying it was her worst cause I didn't know the song but I also thought Fields of Gold was amazing so idk
