I'm glad I gave American Idol a shot this year, because it has been pretty good!
In fact, I thought last night could have been the toughest vote I've ever cast for a show finale!
I agree that the original songs that Caleb, Gabby & Maddie sang were weak, and their performances showed they didn't feel comfortable with them at all...which should be expected!
But all of their last 2 songs were really good!
So, I had a tough time...but here's where I finally came down with my votes:
Caleb: 10 votes!
Out of the three, I think Caleb has the most recognizable voice and style and could make a pretty seamless transition to the Country charts right now with the right song! That's why he got first place for me!
Maddie: 9 votes!
I love Maddie's originality and style. Plus, I think she a real musician, which makes me respect her a lot!
Gabby: 8 votes!
There is no doubt that Gabby has an unbelievable voice and she's GREAT on stage! I just don't know if she has an "IT" factor that makes her stand out from anyone other artist in a very crowded music business!
We'll see what happens tonight on ABC!
