    I could still watch this show and kinda still like it. But is this really gonna get another season?

    Even the gossip sites didn’t report on a Katy Perry or Ryan Seacrest sighting in this city or that city. For a very long time I wasn’t even sure it was coming back during these months since nothing was reported, photographed or leaked. Barely no promo either until about a week or two before the show.

    Will they give it a 3rd season to pretend it’s not done already?

    Where’s last year’s winner and her music?

    Single was released after she won in 2018 and this song was last month. https://idolchatteryd.com/maddie-poppe-hits-the-mark-with-made-you-miss/ Outside of that, I haven’t seen her on anything else besides GMA, Idol in the auditions, and the Disney Parade.

    Ironically, a few things that have happened to last seasons alum not named Maddie that are more interesting: https://people.com/music/american-idol-gabby-barrett-engaged-cade-foehner/

    My ranking of the top 14 (my top ten in bold):
    1)Liane Hardy: He is one of my top 4 to win this…I think he will be in the final 2.
    2)Laci Kaye Booth: She is the silent assassin lol. Just keeps doing great and flying under the radar. Easily one of my top 4.
    3)Madison VanDenburg: This girl can sing anything. Easily one of my top 4.
    4)Evelyn Cormier: Love her voice. She seems to have mellowed out since 90 Day Fiance.
    5)Alyssa Raghu: Song choice is key for her since she can sing anything and makes some interesting choices…that sometimes don’t pan out as well as he would hope.
    6)Alejandro Aranda: Amazing and easily one of my top 4.
    7)Walker Burroughs: Amazing voice but I still find myself going “This guy is boring and doesn’t really take risks with songs.”
    8)Dimitrius Graham: INCREDIBLE voice.
    9)Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon: I love his voice but am over the sob story angle the show keeps bringing up again and again and again.
    10)Ashley Hess I love her voice but I think that the duet was brutal.

    11)Wade Cota: Great voice but I’m over the sob story and his duet wasn’t great.
    12)Riley Thompson: Love her voice but that duet wasn’t great for her and I think there is room for only one country girl in the top 10.
    13)Uché: Love him but he might be a bit too much for American Idol voters.
    14)Eddie Island: Ok that duet was HORRIBLE. His Solo round wasn’t great either. Sorry Eddie…still think u have a great voice though

    This is a pretty good top 14. I will say Ryan was robbed. He easily should’ve gotten in over Eddie, Wade, Riley and Evelyn to name a few… Here are my rankings of them.

    1. Jeremiah
    2. Ashley
    3. Madison
    4. Demetrius
    5. Walker
    6. Alyssa
    7. Laci
    8. Uche
    9. Alejandro (He’s good but seriously why are they so obsessed with this guy?)
    10. Lane
    11. Riley
    12. Evelyn
    13. Wade (seems like a good guy, but that voice is nails on the chalkboard)
    14. Eddie

    Here are my thoughts on the odds of the Top 14.

    (Keep in mind that I have placed within the Top 20 every year on GoldDerby for predicting American Idol since Season 13)

    Alejandro: He is my mind is the obvious frontrunner. Most people really love him and his songwriting/singing capabilities.
    Alyssa: I do not think she’ll win, but I think she should place like between 7th to 10th.
    Ashley: She’s great and she could be an underdog. Let’s keep in mind that an underdog has won the previous three seasons (Nick, Trent and Maddie) so if history is going to repeat like it often does, it could work in Ashley’s favour.
    Dimitrius: I do not think he’ll get past 7th place even though I like him.
    Eddie: I think he’s good, but a lot of people are not predicting him to go through, so I think he’ll probably not make it.
    Evelyn: Man, people are really hating on Evelyn (the Sanjaya of this year?) online. I am not sure if the online folks are the same as the voting pubic but she is still probably fodder.
    Jeremiah: A lot of people are saying he is a big frontrunner and I agree, but there is one big problem that could affect the voting. His sexuality. I understand that we are living in the most accepting time ever and that GoldDerby is ripe with SJWs but an LGBT contestant has NEVER won (which you could argue is all the reason why he should win which I understand), though Clay Aiken and Adam Lambert came close, but the show is VERY popular in Bible belt America so I am not sure if there in that large demographic that we’ll do well. Keep in mind that last year the two LGBT contestants, Ada Vox and Jurnee both were very popular but both went home early probably because of this. History is doomed to repeat itself after all. So while I think Jeremiah will do well, he most likely will not win.
    Laci: She has IMO the best odds of all the female contestants and probably will do very well this season.
    Laine: He checks a lot of the marks for a winner. A young, good-looking guitar-playing straight white male who have won a lot in the past (Phillip, Nick, Trent, Kris Allen, Lee), plus there is the “redemption for last season” narrative that I think will get him a lot of votes.
    Madison: I think she is a little underrated, but in all honesty she’ll probably do quite well.
    Riley: She is generic country voice, I think she will not last long.
    Wade: He could be a dark horse if he chooses the right songs that suit is awesome voice.
    Uche: He is an “entertainer” but I do not think he has the singing chops that a lot of the other contestants have, so I think he probably will not last long.
    Walker: He is great but I think he needs to really differentiate or else he is toast.

    In conclusion, I think Alejandro, Laci and Laine have the best chances of winning but honestly there is like six that have a really solid chance and the talent this year is STELLAR! So I do not know.

    I also predict that Eddie, Uche, Riley and Evelyn will be eliminated. I am talking a chance on Dimitrius but I think he could easily replace one of the four, most likely Eddie because the public may click with his “weirdness”.

    I'm not perfect, but I keep trying.

    Ratings are still good so I could see it, but IMO I think they need to change some of the judging panel, namely Luke Bryan because he is completely useless.

    I'm not perfect, but I keep trying.

    Also for all the people who are thinking Wade will be eliminated. He is quite popular on social media and he has a very unique voice. I think he could do quite well if he plays his cards right.

    I'm not perfect, but I keep trying.

    Finished watching and these are the 7 I think will easily go through:
    1)Walker Burroughs: Nailed it.
    2)Alejandro Aranda: Killed it.
    3)Madison VanDenburg: She was amazing.
    4)Laine Hardy: My least favorite performance from him thus far but he still managed to sell it really well despite the obvious nerves.
    5)Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon: He chose the right song and sang it well but my least fav performance from him.
    6)Ashley Hess: Right song at the right time. Excellent.
    7)Laci Kaye Booth: Didn’t nail it in my opinion but still very good despite the wrong song.

    And as for the the rest, I am going to bold the ones I think the judges will save:
    8)Alyssa Raghu: Great voice with a great song choice that go overshadowed by the others last night.
    9)Dimitrius Graham: Wrong song but I think he salvaged it.
    10)Evelyn Cormier: Her worst performance thus far but I still liked it.

    11)Riley Thompson: She chose the right song but her weakest performance in my opinion.
    12) Wade Cota: Yeah that was easily his worst in my opinion.
    13)Uché: Yeah not a good night to have your worst performance my friend.
    14)Eddie Island: Worst performance of the night.

    3)Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon: “Go The Distance” from Hercules
    4)Walker Burroughs: “Beauty and the Beast” from Beauty and the Beast
    5)Wade Cota: “Why Should I Worry” from oliver & Company
    6)Laci Kaye Booth: “A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes” from Cinderella
    7)Laine Hardy: “My Funny Friend and Me” from The Emperor’s New Groove
    8)Uché: “Be Prepared” from The Lion King

    Alejandro, Laci, Walker, Wade, Laine, Jeremiah and Madison are the real deal.

    If history is any guide, the four contestants that the judges saved last year lasted a maximum of two weeks before getting eliminated. Knowing this, Dimitrius, Uche and Alyssa’s days are numbered. It’s just a matter of who or when they will be eliminated is the case.

    I am upset at Ashley’s elimination because she was great (and arguably better than Uche who is a good entertainer but arguably the worst singer of the lot). Everyone else I am fine with being eliminated.

    Knowing this it is a matter of who will likely win based on the past Idol winners, as well as who would be the “underdog” because an underdog has won the past three years.

    Predicted Winners
    Based on Past Winners: Laine Hardy
    Based on Talent: Alejandro Aranda
    Based on Underdog Status: Walker Burroughs

    I'm not perfect, but I keep trying.

    I’m really bummed Ashley was eliminated. She should’ve been in over Wade, Laci, Demetrius, Alyssa and Uche, but alas…. Anywho, other than that, this is a pretty good top ten… but yeah, the wild cards are in big trouble… At this point, the winner will come from these four: Laine, Jeremiah, Madison, Walker. I know people keep saying Alejandro, but trust me he’s not making the finals. He’s a very talented musician, but the vocals are just ok and he’s lacking some personality…. Here’s how I’d rank them…

    Current predictions on winning this season:
    1. Laine
    2. Madison
    3. Jeremiah
    4. Walker
    5. Laci
    6. Alejandro
    7. Wade
    8. Alyssa
    9. Demetrius
    10. Uche

    My personal rankings:
    1. Jeremiah
    2. Madison
    3. Walker
    4. Alyssa
    5. Laine
    6. Laci
    7. Alejandro
    8. Demetrius
    9. Uche
    10. Wade

    ~ I feel like Demetrius and Uche will go home next week.

    People said the same thing about Taylor Hicks. Simon even said he would NOT be in the final two and look what happened.

    American Idol is a weird show. Let’s wait and see.

    I'm not perfect, but I keep trying.
