Thanks to the wonders of YouTube, I was able to check out a ton of videos for this blog post. I have gathered here the Ten Best American Idol Performances. Everything was purely based on my opinion. No outside consultations, just which performances gave me the most chill and rank them from one to ten. My top three to five were almost given, but whichever came in from six to ten had to be reconsidered over and over again.
Some winners and other famous hopefuls didn't make my cut so some of you might think "why no Jordin Sparks or Kelly Clarkson or Clay Aiken et al"? Well guess what, it was hard not to put other really good singers inside my top ten because others were very good too! Whoever has reached the highest of octaves didn't necessarily reached my top 10. Everything was purely out of whoever gave me the most chills, and whoever had that magic based on that performance. No artist appeared twice on my list. Here it goes:
1. Danny Gokey "You Are So Beautiful" (sorry for the video quality. YouTube and this year's AI Season weren't surely the best of friends)
2. Fantasia Barrino "I Believe"
3. David Cook "Billie Jean"
4. Bo Bice "In a Dream"
5. Elliot Yamin "A Song For You"
6. Chris Daughtry "Have You Really Loved A Woman"
7. Katharine Mcphee "Somewhere Over The Rainbow"
8. Adam Lambert "One"
9. Blake Lewis "You Give Love A Bad Name"
10. Constantine Maroulis "Bohemian Rhapsody"
