Top 13

So, I picked 10 or 11 of the Top 13... not too bad, right?
Sad about Brett & Julie, I thought they had so much more in them-- especially for Brett, because he didn't have a bad performance the other night.  It's too bad.   Not too thrilled about Scotty McCreery or Jacob Lusk, either, but I think we got a really good melting pot going on.

4 of my 5 Top 5 picks are still alive also, so I think I'm pretty accurate there, as well.  I was just really off about Brett.  

Your Top 13:

  • Scotty McCreery
  • Jacob Lusk
  • Casey Abrams
  • Paul McDonald
  • James Durbin
  • Pia Toscano
  • Lauren Alaina
  • Karen Rodriguez
  • Thia Megia
  • Haley Reinhart
  • Ashthon Jones
  • Stefano Langone
  • Naima Adedapo


  1. Maria, check out my Idol Blog. There's old posts there from season 8, also I created a custom background. I put your blog on my blogroll, I'd love it if you did the same.

  2. Maria, here's my predictions concerning how the top 13 will play out.

    13---Ashton I've tried to find a way to keep her around but I really can't. I even think that Naima is both a better singer and is more likeable that Ashton.
    12---Naima - With Ashton gone and a third show for the eye strain of Naima's dresses to take effect on the audiences, Naima is sure to leave.
    11---Karen - I think Karen is a good singer and deserves better, but she really has some negativity surrounding her. I'll put her out at 11.
    10---Thia - A singer that is 15 but not a cute 15. she's rounding out the summer tour but not making a very big splash as a whole.
    9---Stefano - The first boy to be knocked out, Stefano at #9.
    8---Haley - Haley may build a following by now and not go out this early, but based on the limited vote info we have, 8 looks good for haley.
    7---Jacob - I hope I'm wrong about this one. Jacob deserves to be a top three contestant. If he can find a way to look different every week he may stay longer, but if he does his niche .. he'll be gone even earlier than 7.
    6---Paul - I think paul will wear thin. I think he'll become less likeable than some other contestants.
    5---Casey - His quirkiness will be his undoing. It may even get him booted much earlier than fifth.
    4---Lauren - Perhaps I'm giving her the same exit point as Ms. Iraheta purely by chance. Or perhaps it's by design.
    3---james - James will only last til third if he takes the judges advice and sings a few songs outside of the metal genre. otherwise he's a 6-8 finish.
    2 Pia - The shows most marketable female will lose out to the younger male.
    1- Scotty-- County boy will not be denied. Scotty does what Archie was unable to do.
