”American Idol” 2008 Begins Audience Eliminations-Top 24 Named

They went to Philadelphia, Dallas, San Diego, Charleston, Miami, Omaha, and Atlanta. The contenders turned out by the thousands.

Now American Idol 2008 has announced the top 24 contenders. Below we have a pic of every one of them plus one who should have made it.

Which ones, we must speculate, appear headed to the finals?

Below some links and or video to what I deem to be the best possibilities. My guesses are based on past choices, what seems due this year, and the amount of attention paid to the contenders by the judges and/or producers during the tryouts.

Below, a video of Amanda Overmyer. Amanda is a nurse who rides a Harley. She’s got a rough but pleasantly surprising edge. Her style is Janis Joplin of the twenty first century.

I figure it’s time for a female singer with something different. Amanda’s got an edge, a soft growl, some anger. She’s not Carrie Underwood and she sure ain’t Jordin Sparks. I think she’ll make at least the top five.

Amy Davis is a bit of a generic female singer. She’ll make top ten at best; likely not.

Asia’H Epperson tried out in Atlanta, Georgia. She’s just lost her father a few days prior to the audition. The song she chose is sweet, sad, touching. The judges seemed to like Asia, with the oddly spelled name.

I think Asia will make the top ten but I won’t commit beyond that.

Robbie Carrico comes from the Miami area. I don’t think he’ll make the top ten.

Syesha Mercado is one to watch. She’s from the Miami area, has a bit of Fantasia about her. Her voice is powerful and I can see her winning this thing. Definitely top five material.

Kady Malloy is a pretty blond with a bit of a country twang. I don’t see anything outstanding about her and would be surprised if she makes it into the top ten.

David Cook is a fellow who could win this thing. He’s from the Omaha area. He really needs to work on his “look”. That hair does nothing for him.

I doubt he’ll be able to beat a couple of the great female finalists but who knows, maybe American will go for a guy this year.

Carly Smithson, from the San Diego area, is the one I’d choose to win this thing if someone held a gun to my head. She’d tried out in 2005 but there were problems with her visa. I’m not sure why she needed a visa, she sounds very American to me.

Carly has a great voice, a great look and those tattoos on her arms are unique and, oddly, attractive.

Brooke White is beautiful with a great voice. I predict this one will make the top ten, maybe the top five. She’s a bit too ordinary, however, and I’m basing a lot of my predictions on my notion that this year America might be looking for someone with a bit of an edge.

Ensley Kyle Number 24

And let’s not forget this fellow. For every year there’s always some weirdo who tries out for American Idol. His name is Renuldo Lapuz and his song is definitely one for the liberals. In fact, Obama should ask for use of this tune for his campaign.

Below, “You Are My Brother”. Don’t you love that outfit?
