Hometown: Joplin, MO
Fave Music: Mariah Carey, Anthony Hamilton, Christina Aguilera.
Pro: She’s a little firecracker with a very mature voice.
Con: Yes, she’s been really good, but she hasn’t quite flashed that star potential.
Hometown: Mesa, AZ
Fave Music: John Mayer, Feist, Fleetwood Mac.
Pro: This innocent blonde comes across as a legitimate singer/songwriter, not just a pop star wannabe.
Con: Her voice and performances are unique, but she’s not the best singer in the competition.
Hometown: Sand Diego, CA
Fave Music: Bono, Celine Dion, The Rolling Stones
Pro: This Irish lass has an amazing voice and a good heart.
Con: Some voters may not like that she’s had a big time record deal once already.
Kristy Lee Cook
Hometown: Selma, OR
Pro: Kristy Lee has the looks and the pipes to be Idol’s next country queen.
Con: She might not be unique enough to get a big fan base of voters.
Hometown: Miramar, FL
Fave Music: Mariah Carey, Justin Timberlake, Kanye West.
Pro: She has more of a hip-hop and R&B vibe than other contestants.
Con: So far she hasn’t had a lot of TV time, so she has to catch the voters right away.
Hometown: Sarasota, FL
Pro: Even with a sore throat, she delivered one of Hollywood week’s most memorable performances.
Con: A lot of really good singers haven’t connected with the audience, can she do it?
