I just had my idol fantasy draft with my wife. I had the first pick and after agonizing :roll: between David Archuletta and Michael Johns I went with the young kid. After she scooped up Johns and Carly Smithson (my favorite of the girls) with the 2nd and 3rd picks I regretted my decision. Now I feel like I like Johns to win and I'm afraid Archuletta may fold under the pressure on account of his being so young.

Archuletta is this year's Sanjay.

Clearly the "judges" pick a certain type of singer. If I listened with my eyes closed, I would have thought the same guy went on stage 10 times. They all sing too vibrato, and they are all boring. Dreadlock guy and bandana scruffy guy weren't that bad.

They suck for not selecting the southern English dude.

Why? Did you want to watch him cry some more?

I don't have a favorite yet. I haven't seen much of the guys. I saw Robbie and David Archuleta sing the other night, and I kind of like them. Jason Yeager has the Sunday church service thing going on, and that's not a good thing.

I saw all of the girls last night. I like most of them honestly. I don't think I like that Janis Joplin-sounding girl very much. Kristy Lee Cook is easy on the eyes and has a good voice, but she's not really all that charismatic. I'd like to see her stick around. I think the Irish girl has the best voice, but most of them seemed pretty nervous. Asia might be my favorite right because she has charisma and she is hot as hell. I actually like Katy a lot, too.

I think Amy Davis and Joanne (is that her name?) should be going.

JJ feels an affinity to people who act like dicks.

I didn't see too much of the girls because there was an eclipse and stuff. That was more interesting to me. Just a note though... That's great that you have a wide vocal range, but you don't need to sing every octave on every word. Who started that shit anyway?

Jason Yeager and Danny Noriega are my picks to miss the cut. That gay Jailhouse Rock thing that Danny did was all wrong. David Cook is my favorite so far but I also quite like Michael Johns and David Archuleta too.

I agree with these two. Amy's voice was all over the place last night. I think Carly and Syesha are the best singers but Carly's performance last night was too safe and she looked dowdy. I liked Amanda Overmyer (Janis Joplin nurse) at first but I'm cooling on her. Ramiele and Brooke are my new favorites.

After being able to avoid this for the frist 6 seasons... with the exception of the QUEEN episode a year or two ago... I have managed to miss this whole thing... well.. OK so I watched a few minutes every now and then of stupid people trying out...

But this year I was talked into watching it from the begining because Julie (My girlfriend... kinda) loves the show... i'm not hooked pr anything... but I am interested for the the first time in some of the contestants...

don't really care enough to make any preditions yet though.

I just saw the first episode with the 12 guys last night. I was mistaken about Archuletta. He was probably the best of the night.

Others I liked: the Australian dude, the dreadlock Texan (though his guitar playing made it sound ultra-busking), and the Melbourne, FL dude that looks like Justin Timberlake with a bandana and beard but sings like Ronnie Van Zant.

Time to go: the two effeminate hair-flicking Elvis singers.

The girls' episode is on tonight.

I batted .500 on my selection of losers. I got Colton Berry but really thought that Danny Noriega, the one who murdered Jailhouse Rock, was a tad worse than the Peter Frampton doppleganger. I also guessed Amy Davis, but really thought that Amanda, the "rock-n-roll nurse" (:roll:), was absolutely awful. Some free advice: next time choose a song with more than 6 words and don't "scat" if'n you're not a jazz singer.

Not a great show tonight. Michael Johns and Jason Castro both took a step backwards but I doubt either of them is going home. The judges raved about David Archuleta again but I wasn't blown away by his version of "Imagine". I would pick Jason Yeager and Danny Noriega to go. Yeager was dreadful again and Noriega is just far too cocky and unlikeable. Besides, I haven't forgiven him for murdering "Jailhouse Rock" last week.

For me, best performance was David Hernandez. David Cook is still my favorite though.

So from our draft (mine and A2's)- A2 has lost three people tonight and I have only lost one.

Here are what our teams look like right now:

A2's team:

Danny Noreiga
David Archuleta
David Hernandez
Asia'h Epperson
Kady Malloy
Kristy Lee Cook
Ramiele Malubay

My team:

Chikezie
David Cook
Garrett Haley
Jason Castro
Luke Menard
Michael Johns
Amanda Overmyer
Brooke White
Carly Smithson
Syesha Mercado

I admit that A2 having David Archuletta will be a big thorn in my side because he is really good. But at least I don't have Danny Noreiga- he looks like Jessica Alba.

The thing about fantasy teams of any kind is that no one outside of the league gives a damn about them

You're correct and I stand corrected in my previous statement.

Dear Lord, who is voting for Amanda? Not only is her voice annoying, but she comes across as pretty abrasive. Just because you are a biker chick, and "do your own thing" doesn't mean you are likeable.

I felt bad for Jason Yeager. He sucked and I found him really creepy, but he seemed legitimately disappointed. Eh, well. He has a bright future in singing in church and doing local musicals.

What's the deal with David Hernandez? Just seems like another run-of-the-mill boy band member to me.

I think my favorite this year might be Brooke White. Which is not what I thought I would say 3 weeks ago.

Danny Noriega is really pretty.
