by at . Comments

With the American Idol top 10 taking the stage again tonight, and with this shaping up to be one of the more hotly-contested seasons to date, it's time for the first THG Power Poll of the season.

Who do you see as the favorite right now?

American Idol Top 10

10. Deandre Brackensick: Would have been our choice to leave after last week's debacle. He can hit the high notes... and that's about it.

9. Heejun Han: Love the personality, don't see anything on stage that makes him standout above the rest. It's solid and nothing more or less.

8. Elise Testone: Might suffer some likability issues. Did you notice her NOT applauding for Erika last week? Or not hugging Skylar? Yes, we're forced to nitpick when the talent is this even. We did love her version of "Let's Stay Together."

7. Joshua Ledet: We expect plenty of disagreement here. It's not a question of his voice, just of his theatrics. Ledet's "When a Man Loves a Woman" may have been the single best of any contestant this season, but we can see his act growing old.

6. Skylar Laine: She has the energy and the attitude, that's for sure. She also has the identity: a rocking country chick. She just lacks the range.

5. Erika Van Pelt: Loved her take on“Edge of Glory." A smooth, consistent voice makes it hard to see this finalist faltering in the next few weeks.

4. Colton Dixon: Love the risks he takes - a song by White Lion?!? - and love his confidence on stage. Most definitely stands out on a weekly basis.

3. Jessica Sanchez: Will go down in Idol history for her version of “I Will Always Love You." That should be enough to keep her around for awhile. But can she go outside the world of ballads? A less-than-impressive take on “Turn the Beat Around" causes us to wonder.

2. Hollie Cavanagh: Has she had an off week yet? Memorable auditions of “Reflection,” “All the Man That I Need,” and “The Power of Love" prove she has staying power. Could work on her versatility and stage presence.

1. Phillip Phillips: He's a cute young white guy with a guitar. Until American Idol viewers prove they are capable of crowning someone else, he has to be the favorite.



I think jessica by far has the most talent. She should win out of phillp phillps but he is close to jessca but not as talented. Jessica should win it all!!!!!!!!!!!!


If jessica loses, she will still be more famous than the one to be crowned as the american idol. I would like to see her win, because she 100% ,totally deserve this.


The writer states " 1. Phillip Phillips: He's a cute young white guy with a guitar. Until American Idol viewers prove they are capable of crowning someone else, he has to be the favorite. Can you explain yourself regarding: "white" guy?


Elise is the best by far. I'll admit though that she had a terrible week, but DeAndre really needs to stop. He is terrible, and all three judges should be ashamed for saying anything to the contrary. They are honestly the most pathetic excuses for a judging panel in modern history. They need to grow up, and grow a pair while they're at it. Constructive criticism is SO useful to the contestants. Or at least it would be if the judges gave any.


They are all good but my favorite is Jessica Sanchez.


DeAndre has the sweetest voice! The idiot Jimmy needs to be slapped. Let him sing what he wants to sing and shut up. At least we will be judging on what DeAndre can really sing opposed to what you crap you make him sing and then gripe about how uncomfortable he seems to be. That asian kid is a joke and needs to be gone already. He even said he isn't a star... he should do the world a favor and just volunteer to leave.


I Can't believe some of the things you dumbasses are saying about DeAndre! His Voice is Unique & So Rare & This is what u have to say about it?? If You don't like his voice then you clearly have a severe hearing problem & suggest you see an Audiologist ASAP! Eric Benet & Maxwell Both Complememnted His Voice & Are Following Him On Twitter! So STFU Becasue He Is Damn Good & Here To Stay!!! Heejun Is A Comedian.. He Needs To Leave -__-


Ok who ever says DeAndre cant sing is dumb as hell, because he has one of the best voices on the show! If he couldnt sing then why is he still on the show? um because he is talented! I would like to see you try to sing as well as he does..Dont hate on DeAndre!!!


I love DeAndre "Kamele" Brackensick!!!
He is the next American Idol!!!
He can sing anything and the Dre-Dreamers have his back all day long. This week he gets to choose his own song so you better watch out America. Here he comes!!!
Dre-Dreamers Love DRE!!! Dre is here to Stay!!!
Quit Hating On Him and Get A Life!!!


I am very disappointed, I can not believe that America sent 2 of the best singers home and kept Heejun!! He sucks! He can't even pronounce his words right and he has no respect for the judges! !He is a clown, not an entertainer!

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.
