The American Idol Power Poll: Volume IV

by at . Comments

Now that American Idol has whittled down its contestants to the final 24, our Power Poll gets serious.

Only talented competitors remain in what many followers consider to be the show's most impressive season to date. But who is leading the pack heading into tomorrow night's performance of the top 12 males. Let's find out...

Spanish Sensation

1. Michael Johns (last week: #2): He has the looks, experience, singing talent... and the best accent in American Idol history. The Aussie's professional background may turn off some viewers, however.

2. Asia'h Epperson (last week: #8): Young and enthusiastic, reminds us of Melinda Doolittle with her innocence and charm. Possesses more personality than this finalist from last season.

3. David Archuleta (last week: #4): Arguably the favorite for many, but we've got a Simon-like question about this talent: does he really have music superstar written on him?

4. Carly Smithson (last week: #7): Similar to Johns. Great look, sound, experience and accent. But will voters not wanna reward someone who has already put out a label-sponsored album?

5. Kristy Lee Cook (pictured, last week: #1): Also signed with a record label in 2001, but that's almost part for this year's American Idol course. Has been a contender since the first night of auditions.

6. Amanda Overmyer (last week: #5): Possibly our favorite contestant. The most unique Idol wanna-be in memory. She's a rockin nurse!

7. David Cook (last week: #3): This Chris Daughtry-like singer might has a long way to go until he reaches that star's level. But we're excited to watch him tryto get there.

8. Chikezie Eze (last week: #6): Tried out for the show during season six. Approved for Hollywood this time around with a rendition of "All the Woman I Need." Handsome, talented.

9. Kady Malloy (pictured, last week: #9): Young, cute and innocent. Will that be enough?

10. Alex Lushington (last week: #10): Just 16 years old. Brought her great-grandmother along for her audition, which included a terrific version of "My Funny Valentine." A nice dichotomy to the previously mentioned contestants with professionals resumes.

Ok, so now Ryan Seacrest is rubbing Kristy Lee's neck, she is whispering things about texting him, and he is leaning into her when saying the name of the song "I will alway... Love you" and she is saying "Thank you, Ryan". Either they are playing with the audience, or something is going on here! Each week these two play more and more together on stage. Hmmm.....
And, why else would she be so comfortable with the Simon banter? If she doesn't go home tonight, it's even more proof!

I think Carly, Brooke and Kristie Lee Cook are the top three for the women David Cook, David A and Jason Castro for the men. I love Michael JOhns look but lately he hasn't been in the top three for me.

***if you did a youtube search or myspace search and heard him sing I'll be or "joyful joyful"--you would have your answer already, but since you didnt, you had to wait to see him sing "imagine" and now you know --he is humble, talented and the leader of the pack-- now only time will tell if the Votes will be behind him 3. David Archuleta (last week: #4): Arguably the favorite for many, but we've got a Simon-like question about this talent: does he really have music superstar written on him?

American Idol Quotes

Brooke White's tears come from the authentic, good soul that she is. Her heart was breaking because she was overwhelmed with the experience she had with the show and the gift that it brought.

Paula Abdul [after Brooke White was eliminated on season seven]

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
