    I have to say, this is the saddest batch of contestant American Idol has ever had. Not a single person I would pick up the phone and vote for.

    This season is much better than last year, mostly because of Harry Connick, Jr., who is pretty funny and also a serious musician.

    Chuy: I don’t agree, it’s true there’s no Adam Lambert or David Cook, someone able to transform a song and make it work, but i think the contestants are not bad at all.
    Last year it had one of the best contestants ever, but Candice unfortunately has no charisma and i doubt she will get a good comercial career (wich is a pity because she is amazing).
    And the guys were terrible, the only one who has potential, Paul Jolley was throwed under the bus without hesitation.
    This year the cast is more diverse, and the guys are more interesting.

    I like MK, we’ll see if she is able to carry the hype

    Last year’s results were more or less predetermined. They needed a woman to win after guys with guitars won five years in a row. The judges chose the worst batch of guys they could in order to achieve their goal. All but one of the men were voted out in the first weeks, the one remaining was the worst of all of them (the “Sanjaya” effect). The result was a terrible season. This year it appears they’re back to allowing guys with guitars again and we’ll see how this goes.

    I agree with Chuy. I was thinking the same thing last week. There isnt anyone I would pick up the phone for. This is the first season of Idol since it premiered that I haven’t voted at least once.
    Some of the contestants are good but no one is a star or has the charisma to be an idol. They are all a bunch of nice kids but thats it.
    Noblette is annoying. She is too quiet and her singing is just okay because of her personality. She should also lose the cap.

    MK Nobilette already has a name made for stardom, she’s got a look (to be improved on of course) and a basic instrument and approach. I find her appealing, but she really needs a strong coach to fully develop. She’s kind of winging it (and J-Lo ain’t goin’ to give her any help). There’s a seed there, it needs to grow. This particular song is not good for her at all.
