I was listening to the radio on my way home from work yesterday and they started talking about some American Idol news. Now I don’t know what their source was but they were saying how for the last season of American Idol the producers want to bring back all the past idol contestants and make them compete against each other. They’d be competing to become the ULTIMATE American Idol. The radio hosts then proceeded to have a discussion about who they think would be eliminated, who would make it into the finals and who would win. They figured the last three standing would be Kelly Clarkson, Chris Daughtry, Carrie Underwood with Carrie Underwood taking the title. I thought that was interesting. I must agree. I think the three will definitely be in the finals. They’re all huge in their respective genres of music. They’ve set new records, won grammy, sold millions of albums. But I think Chris Daughtry has a pretty good chance of taking the title.
I have to be honest. I haven’t watched Idol since probably 3rd or 4th season. After a while it just got to be too much. It lost it’s appeal. Like a neverending cycle of new American Idols. But if this is what they have planned for the last season I will definitely be watching again. I want my old favorites to have another change at winning. I want to see people that won before lose in the same way their albums flopped after the season. I want an ultimate american idol. Now what do you guys think? Who would be your top 3 American Idols and who would be crowned the Ultimate American Idol?
