The American Idol Power Poll: Volume XI

by at . Comments

Last week's American Idol Power Poll angered many David Archuleta fans. They can't believe we referred to their favorite as "boring."

Sorry, but we're not taking it back.

As talented as Archuleta is, Simon Cowell reminds us all the time that performance matters. All we see from Archuleta on a weekly basis is the same pained, emotional expression as he sings ballad after ballad. We'd never buy that album.

Who's would we purchase? Perhaps this week's rankings will give you an idea:

1. David Cook: As news of his brother's cancer has spread, Cook has managed to block out the pain and focus on fresh performances every week. We're ever more impressed than ever with him.

2. Michael Johns: Can sing slow, can sing fast. Has the look and the sound to really go far in the music world.

3. David Archuleta: Simply due to his voice, we'll never drop Archuleta lower than the three spot. But, as we said earlier, it's impossible to see how he could sell any albums.

4. Brooke White: We still love this folk singer, despite her difficult last couple weeks. Along with Brooke's water works, tears flowed from The Hollywood Gossip staff last Wednesday night, as we feared for White in the bottom three. Hang in there, Brooke!

5. Carly Smithson: If she wins, Carly can afford to buy her husband a few more tattoos.

Well...I guess now you know that you were wrong bc David doesn't only sing Ballads and the pop songs are amazing. Also David Cook didn't sell that many cds for his second album so I guess you're wrong on the fact that David Cook would do so much better than Archie.. Also David Archuleta has fans all around the world and David Cook fans are more based in the States...David Archuleta does not have a boring voice and if you looked up all the recent youtube vids you'll see y I said that...David's voice has matured and just OMG!! Everyone has different tastes...Don't assume your taste is everyones!!! Really pissed off at authors who say crap about other people when they are not even a singer themselves and know nothing about music!!


David Archuleta will deffinatly sell alot of albums. he has so much talent and people love 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.

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.
