American Idol: Ranking the Top 12

Over at NJ.com, I ranked the top 12 "American Idol" contestants, while acknowledging the absolute folly of last year's rankings, and while appropriating the tiers concept that Adam Bonin again used today.

I'm not feeling very optimistic for tonight, as the combination of an underwhelming group of semi-finalists and the songs of The Rolling Stones seems a very poor fit.

I've been watching since tryouts, and I still can't recall this Aaron character or a single song he's sung. That's not a good sign. Katie Stevens really annoys me.

I'm not sure why the judges are gunning for Andrew Garcia. They ride the kids to "define who they are as artists" (to quote Kara ad nauseum), and here comes Andrew, fully formed musically, and they give him grief for it and tell him he peaked too early. I don't get it.

Can I just say that I freakin' love Crystal Bowersox. I think that her sould and the music that she chooses is completely perfect. I am afraid for her as she is not super pretty or a hot young guy, but her look is great and I think that it's time for someone like this to win Idol.

How come all of the photos are bland publicity shots except for Siobhan?

Ok, so now I'll remember Aaron.
