American Idol 2010: Rating the Top 3

It has all come down to the American Idol final 3!  They each have given us some amazing vocals and not so great vocals but they have came out each week and entertained us and deserve to be in this coveted spot. 

When we had our Top 24, I told my husband that in a perfect world it would be Lee, Casey and Crystal as the final 3 and I got my wish.  I’m hoping Casey or Lee take it all but the masses seem to be pulling for Crystal so I wouldn’t be surprised if she won the whole thing.

The problem I have with Crystal is we’ve already lived through the Janis Joplin era so when she makes an album will anyone really get into it?  I just don’t see how we can make this hippie chick current.  If I want to listen to “Me and Bobby McGee” I will throw in the Joplin CD not Bowersox but hey this is just my opinion.  Usually the original artist of a song is hard to beat but there are a few rare exceptions.

Disappointment is what I feel about Lee Dewyze.  I like the guy and I think he has a good sound when he can stay on pitch but he is not at all consistent.  The best he had ever done was when he couldn’t use his guitar so maybe the guitar is getting in the way of him focusing on the vocals. 

So here’s hoping the underdog Casey James takes the crown!  He has had his rough moments but out of everyone regardless if he wins or not, he will be the most successful.  Casey is a fantastic musician with good vocals.  He has a chance for a great career.
