    I can’t listen to stories like these because I have a dad who had a really bad year, they found a tumour on his kidney which they removed from surgery and close after that he was diagnosed with prostate cancer stage 4. I sat through every appointment of many other medical reasons and radiotherapy with him and it just really hard sometimes.

    this goes out to the Judges and the executive producer, Simon Fuller. I started watching idol season 4, and you have done a great job with judges, but the past 4 seasons have been a goldmine especially this season, Lionel, Katy and Luke, the BEST judges by far, do not change them, unless they are legends, you see in my eyes right now your are beating the VOICE as far as competition is concerned.... but this seasons singers Grace, Alyssa and cast are up there with Carrie and Kelly. this is the best season ever.....GO GRACE....

    Its going to be between Alyssa Wray, Willie Spence & Grace Kinstler. There's your top 3 with ( unless she fucks up royally or if America is completely retarded ) Alyssa Wray being the winner and Willie Spence being the runner up. And possibly vice versa. Which is not a bold statement, its very obvious those are the top 3.

    After Carrie Underwood won (2005) I became less and less impressed with Idol contestants talent, the last full season I watched was Kris Allen (2009). Nobody has been able to match Carrie Underwood’s voice in my mind... Then this pops up in my YouTube feed telling me I need to give it another chance. This girl just blew me away!!
