American Idol is down to the final three contestants, but many are still talking about the loss of James Durbin last week. Although Scotty, Lauren, and Haley all sang great, James Durbin was certainly missed tonight.
The country sound of Lauren and Scotty is so similar that the rock flavor Durbin provided, added a bit of variety. What may happen in the end, is that the country votes will be split, leaving Haley an opening to win it all. Now since Haley is from the Chicagoland area, deep down inside I am hoping she pulls out all the stops and becomes the next American Idol.
It’s not that I don’t think Scotty and Lauren are incredible singers, even making me like country music, which is typically not my thing. But dang, I would really love to see Haley win! Even if she did fall tonight, she rocked it with her dad! And he was there to catch her.
If Haley wins it all, it would be a bit ironic. Seeing that Lee Dewyze also won American Idol, lives a few miles away from Haley and also performed at Arlington Heights Racetrack. Maybe Chicago has something in the water, which creates winners? Let’s hope so!
