After the unexpected leaving of Carly Smithson in the last round of the Idol, i knew it will either be Brooke or Syesha next. We must all agree that Kristee Lee Cook never deserved to get to the top 5 but i honestly think that Carly would made it thru at least in the Top 5 (especially given her strong last performance). But i guess the Americans decided to throw the big-voiced Irish gal out sooner than i had expected. I like Brooke for having her own style and i'm sure she has developed her own fan base throughout the singing competition. While Syesha can sleep well after the announcement of Brooke's departure, she must know that she's up next. The girl can sing, but i think she lacks the uniqueness to win the competition. Then Castro will eventually leave the idol along with his dreamy eyes, "soulful" voice, dreadlocks (& charm that had helped keep him on the show) and all.
And then, i really do not know what will happen between the 2 Davids. It will be a battle between the very novel (& of course much talented) 25 year old rocker from Blue Springs and the sweet-faced 17-year old singing prodigy from Utah that we all adore. (As much as i think that Archuleta is super-talented, i personally favour Cook's originality, singing style and performance so i'm kind of hoping he will be the next Idol - it has nothing to do with his bad guy image, honest!). However, we all know that it's just a matter of winning the title. These people can well achieve their dreams soon after the competition is over, doing what they love and make tonnes of money. I'm no expert, just another opinion from a mere observer. Cheers to all, hope u had a splendid Labour Day!
