After hearing the 24 finalists of this year's American Idol, I have chosen my most favorite and least favorite contestants of the girls and the boys:
My Favorite: Paris Bennett, Taylor Hicks
I think Paris and Taylor have the most talent and genuine love for music. They each have a full voice, great intonation, and are the most original and musical as far as phrasing goes. I'd like to see those two go to the finals.
That being said, Paris is young and may be a little too energetic and cute to the point of being annoying. I couldn't stand watching American Idol's Diana DeGarmo for that reason. I don't know if Taylor has the right image to get himself enough votes from the viewers. America might find him a little too eccentric.
My Least Favorite: Brenna Gethers, Bobby Bennett
Brenna is just plain annoying. I think each year they pick someone like her on purpose just to annoy us. Her equivalent from last year is Mikalah Gordon. Bobby was just bad. I can't believe he made it this far. There had to be many other male contestants who were better than him.
