Let the Top 10 begin...

So I’ll admit it...I watch American Idol. Personally I feel once you watch it everyone will get hooked. I’ve now got two of my roommates watching it every week. Especially if you like music and know how to catch good talent then you need to start to watch.

So for those of you that have missed the first couple of weeks of Idol I have placed the best performances so far. For those of you that have been watching comment and let me know if you think there are better performances.

David Archuleta "Imagine" by John Lennon:



Jason Castro - Hallelujah




David Cook -- Eleanor Rigby:




So those are my pick so far. I'll be now posting the best performance from each week on Wednesday's.

I think I like Butch Walkers take on the the effect of american idol the best.

Not that I think Butch Walker is the end all expert, but i think he brings up a good point about jeff buckley's cover and the state of music today.

And just for good measure so you don't have to look through all the reviews I've provided one of the song comments Butch Walker was talking about.

"BUTCH WALKER DOESNT KNOW WHAT HES TALKIGN ABOUT by J...

FIRST OF ALL I LIKE ALL KINDS OF MUSIC LIKE PANTERA AND SUGARCULT AND PANIC IN THE DISCO BUT I JUST DIDNT LIKE THIS AT ALL IT SOUNDS WAY DIFFERENT THAN THE AMERICAN IDOL VERSION AND THATS THE ONE I WANTED!!!!!!!

BUTCH WALKER JUST DOESNT UNDERSTAND WHAT THE MUSIC INDUSTRY HAS BECOME TODAY AND THATS WHY JEFF BUCKLEY WILL NEVER SELL A LOT OF RECORDS UNLESS HE GETS WITH THE TIMES

DONT BY THIS LOOK INTO GETTING SOMETHIGN ELSE"

p.s. I believe there are millions of people who watch american idol every night?

Anonymous 2, thanks for that Butch Walker link. I like when he opines that there are "music listeners" and "music lovers."

I'm not going to bash American Idol or what it may or may not be doing to the music listening public (although, personally, I detest it [not to mention it ass-rapes the "winners"]), BUT those Jeff Buckley iTunes comments are like daggers to my heart. Come on! I could hardly believe some of the things I was reading. So so sad. So so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so sad.
