Well, American Idol 2010 is off to a, well, start. So far I really haven’t been all that impressed with this years crop, minus a few. (Which I have a feeling not many have, seeing as we haven’t posted much about it on the front page.) I do like “Big Mike” Lynche, Lilly Scott, Lee DeWyze, and Katelyn Epperly. In fact, I thought the judges were way damn harsh on Katelyn and her choice of “Scientist” by Cold Play. I actually loved it. However, none of the contestants have blown me away just yet, except Crystal Bowersox. Of all of them, she is the ultimate artist, and definitley deserves the win already.
Mind you, one could come from behind and have an amazing night. I do expect to see some amazing moments from Lilly Scott for sure, and hopefully, Lee DeWyze with his great voice will have an amazing song pick at some point to highlight that, but I still give the win to Crystal. She is authentic as hell, and this writer would purchase her album today.
Here is a treat. This is an original tune of Crystal’s for you to enjoy. Many thanks to Yak member “TheArtistFormerlyKnownAs” for finding this gem out there on the web. Again, when should we expect the album? I wish it were yesterday.
