Pepper will kill me when she realizes what I'm posting about today, because she is absolutely not a fan of American Idol. Am I a fan? That might be strong terminology. But I have watched it regularly since season 2, as well as watching both seasons of Pop Idol in the UK prior since I was living there at the time they aired (and is why I didn't see season 1 of the American version since they didn't start airing it in the UK until S2).
But it's starting up tonight, and though I have no idea how it's going to work with all the restructuring and new judges (or if it'll even last another season), I thought I'd post about some of the guys who have been my favorites over the years. Honestly, my favorite has only ever won once. I even stopped watching in season 5 after my favorite was voted off (he has one of the three videos below), because I thought everybody else was such a joke.
I'm sure Pepper would argue that they're all jokes, lol. And my sister will be pissed if she sees this because she loved most of the ones I hated. But it's all about everybody's own tastes, isn't it? Just like books and romantic heroes. We have the types we love.
I'm not sure what these three guys actually have in common to say anything about my preferences except that all three performances give me goosebumps.
So without further ado...( Behind the cut since they're vidsCollapse )
