Just to remind all the experts out there, this contest is called American "Idol". Of course it's going to be about popularity! Why would you expect anything else? I, apparently just like all the unwashed masses, enjoyed "Anyway" and I think if Kristi is still singing when she is Martina's age, she will sound as good. I know Israel does it better but I liked what Jason did with Over the Rainbow too. I think the three last standing will be Jason, Kristi and David A. They are all fun to watch, cute as puppies and guess what, they are "Idol" material. It isn't an audience of voice coaches who are voting but people like my 14 year old boy who happens to be in choir and has watched High School Musical so may times, I thought it was a series.
I am using the performances of the contestants as a sort of 'master class' in talking about the human voice and how it works best. David A will likely take it because he has both ease in singing and appeal to the masses.
