American Idol’s Last Man Standing

I know! I’ve been ignoring my American Idol blog! I have a good reason though. I’ve spent the last week in sunny, southern California at Reality Rally with close to 100 Reality RV stars. It was a lot of fun.

I haven’t been paying very close attention to American Idol, but here are my thoughts. Lazaro was on WAAAYYYY too long. I felt so sorry for him. I realize that the fans voted for him because he is so loveable, but that didn’t help him when he couldn’t keep up musically. It’s why the whole American Idol voting system is flawed. It really is a popularity contest, NOT a singing contest.

So at this point, all the guys have been eliminated. Not surprising…that seemed the goal all along, wasn’t it? We have a strong group of girls remaining with Candice seeming to lead the pack. I think she’s the most talented, but frankly, I don’t see her winning. I want her to win, but I don’t think she will. Hopefully, I’m wrong!

We still have two (mostly) country gals–Kree and Janelle. I really like Kree, but once again I don’t see the American Idol in her. I have this weird feeling that Janelle could pull this off. Amber is one of my favorites, but she was in the bottom two this week–not a good sign for her. Last but never least is Angie who just may pull a rabbit out of her hat!

So, what does this all mean? Nothing! I have absolutely NO idea which one of those five will be your next American Idol. I have to admit something else–I don’t really care. Ouch! Sorry, none of those five have reached out to me to the point of making me wait with bated breath each week for American Idol.

But I do love you out there–especially Dr. B’s class. If you tell me you love me in your comments…I’ll know you read this entire blog to the very end! Bloggergal

I love you :D !!!!
Angie is my favorite, but like you said, this year doesn’t have me intrigued enough to watch it every week.
In my opinion, despite the great talent, it’s between jenell and a angie . (since it became a popularity contest) Lazaro was on way too long and his dreams are going to be crushed..

I completely agree, I feel like American Idol was very weak this year as a whole. What you said about the voting system is very true. I really don’t feel as if it should be in the hands of America. Or, Nicki Minaj! Lol. Also, that the bottom two will be down to Angie and Candice. I really don’t know why Janelle or Kree are still there. Maybe I’m just being bitter because I really do hate country; it’s horrible. I really feel for Lazaro leaving, too. I love you, haha!

Overall, I felt the talent wasn’t as strong as it has been in past years. I feel like at this point in the competition that Candice is the best singer, but like you said it’s unlikely she will win because she’s not very popular. I think having America vote is just to get people more interested in the show, which hasn’t ended up well because people vote for who they pity, who their friends vote for, or who they think is attractive. Not many people vote for who they think has the best voice. I love you!

I agree with you about Lazaro. He definitely impressed me though and is still a great singer, but I think he was on the show for alot longer then he should’ve been. This year I think the winner will be Angie, but I could be wrong because all of the girls that are left are very good singers. I love you!!!

I’m glad Lazaro left, I think he stayed on the show this long was just that people liked him . I’m was impressed with this week though , I’m still going strong with Angie being the idol winner!

sigh… this show yet again is a train wreck, however I can’t wait to see Lazaro leave and I know Angie will win. It’s cool though because the longer we watch this the longer the 4th quater is ticking by in school and just want to watch this untill schools out and its summer.

i think that angie and jenelle are the best ones in the competition. in my own opinion i believe that lazarro should have been gone awhile ago

Ian Brace Says:

The guys were voted off for a reason, they weren’t as good as the others. The girls that are left have good voices. Angie Miller has the best voice in my opinion.

Dominique Says:

I love you! Also, I agree with you about Lazaro. I feel like if he didn’t have the pity vote, a much better singer would have a chance to win the competition. Very unfair, in my opinion.

Andrew Baylor Says:

Lazaro seemed to be good in the beginning, but he couldnt keep up with the others.He definitely impressed me and he has talent, just not enough to stay and give a real challenge to the other competitors. Angie is probably the best.

Jacob Yarmey Says:

Im glad Lazaro was voted off the show. I thought he was only onn the show this long because people felt bad for him. I dont really have a favorite of the girls yet. Ill have to pick one for the rest of the contest.

colton miletti Says:

i still think angie is still the best out of them overall but some of them are doing really well on certain genres.if they really pull through they might be able to beat her but hopefully that wont happen because angie really is amazing at every part of it and it would be a shame if she didnt win. i think though that candice might be a runner up or might even be as good as angie.

I believe Angie should win American Idol. She has amazing talant. She has so much star quality. I believe Lazzaro should go home. Honestly this is an amazing blog. I love you.

Im happy Lazzaro was voted off the show. I did not think he was talented at all in my opinion. I don’t really have a favorite artist. But to me any girl can win this competion. To me the best artist is Angie. She has more talent than the others. I also think her pitch is better. This is my opininon. I love you too!!!

I feel that the show this year is alot less interesting than in the past years. Im glad that Lazaro was voted off. He was Ok, but i didn’t think he should have stayed any longer

I wish you could vote a judge off the show. If you could, I’d vote Nicki.

I love you! I agree with you about Lazaro. I feel that if he didnt get the “pity vote”, he would’ve gone home a while ago, and a much more talented singer wouldve been in his position with a better chance to win.

Matthew Dovidas Says:

I agree with you completely. The talent truly ia lacking. Honestly, Candice and Angie are seemingly the best, but of everyone, i see no major talent. the tone qualtiy in kree i see that it needs aome improvement. But, however, i believe the judges got rid of some of the better contestants early on, before America’s viewers voting was incorprated. Lazaro, though i am glad to see him go home, i still feel for him, becuase if he could of improved his musical quality, i believe it would’ve assisted him. For me, being an avid Wyoming Area music student, i just adore singing myself. But if people are too confident in their voice, then they don’t look to improve it. and if they aren’t confident in their voice, then they may not use their voice. They may be good, or can use improvement, but in either case, finding what music benifits your voice part, range, and annotations, would help anyone who wants to make something out of their voice. it may take some time, but i think that anyone can sing if they believe they can and they work at improvisions. if they develop their voice they can be better, but there is always room for improvent. I, being a wide ranged singer, like many types of music because i can actually apprciate the work that goes into developing a song. I have written songs myself, and understand that it is a long, difficult process. and, by singing in chorus, i understand that everyone has their own genre to possess true talent in. some are better in slower songs, some in more upbeat. And so i will conclude with, since i am in Dr. Butz’s class, I Love You, bloggergal! :D

im happy lazaro was vcoted off he was terrible all the girl pretty much over shadowed him he really just couldnt compete with the compatition.

Maria Marstell Says:

The guys really do lack a bit of talent. and i completely agree that American Idol is not a singing contest. it definately is a popularity contest. Lazaro really only won people over by his charm, not his musical talent. Janelle is a really down to earth girl. She really impresses me with her modest personality. i love you !

david klaproth Says:

I am happy that lazzaro got knocked out but i feel bad for him. He never had a chance to win the compietition and he stayed in way to long. I think he was na good singer but not one of the best in america to stay that long. Also i love bloggergirl.

david klaproth Says:

I agree i think Lazzaro stayed in the compatition. He was good but not the bst in america. I believe that Angie will go all the way and win the compatition. She as the best vocals and can easily out sing the other competiters. Also i love bloggergirl.

I think angie is the best.

Zach Lahart Says:

Personally i thought that all of the guys should’ve been eliminated as they are. The girls are obviously a lot more talented than the guys. I still believe Angie should win because of her beautiful voice and character.

Its too bad lazzaro left. Those judges played him real good. He wasnt that good though so its all cool.

Ian Dobosh Says:

I am not sure what it is about Lazaro but in the begining he was fantastic (not just because of his disability) these past 2 or 3 performances have not been impressing. I Love You SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUUUUUUUUUUUUCH!

keith pugh Says:

The girls are a really talented group of girls. They are way better than the guys. I think Angie could win it but i can say that about some other girls too.

Darell Edmonds Says:

Lazoro is finally gone! You are completely right,he was just getting pity votes. Its too bad Devin lost because he was really good. Now its up to the girls to finish the season. Candace and Angie have my votes. As for Janelle and Kree, I honestly dont have much love for. They are just the typicall country singers and it is just not doing anything for me. They arent American Idol material I dont see them going farther than this. And I know Janelle is next to go home.
