I haven't written about American Idol much, I don't actually watch it real time, instead I go to Youtube and watch as much of the performances as I want throughout the days after the show. Anyways, here's my take so far:
Overall it has been an uninspiring season compared to seasons past. The final five contestants are all talented, however they are a bit dull to me. There is a sort of equality between the contestants, unlike other seasons when it came down to the last five, however, no one has done anything very remarkable. There seem to be no risk-takers in this bunch. They all appear to be playing it safe.
Last night was "Neil Diamond" night. Again, nothing too impressive. I think the show is wearing the various theme nights and celebrity mentor thing a bit thin, perhaps that's part of the problem at this point in the show's run.
My favorite so far is Brooke White. She's a good singer, writes songs, and plays piano. Who will win? That's a different story. I am thinking my least favorite finalist, David Archuleta, may well win. That would stink.
Update 5/1: Brooke got kicked off last night! Lame.
Profoundly important stuff, right?
