American Idol 12- Mac’s Power List and Final Thoughts

Well, this week you get a different KIND of power list. I’ve applied this seasons performances to my master list of my 50 favorite performances. This is a really hard list, and I have to keep my preferences to two per artist, which is really hard to do with some contestants. So, that list is included here for you to peruse. Anyone who knows me well, knows I’m a huge Joshua Ledet fan, so that shouldn’t come as a surprise.

Yes, there will be performances on there that aren’t typically on “Top” lists.

Anyhoo… for this week, I think these two girls are evenly matched. I’d hate to say who I think is going to win without having heard the winners single. Because, as we all witnessed last year, there was no way Jessica was winning with that song… and then Phillip Phillips’s song was a masterpiece in terms of a coronation single. Although, the previous year, I thought Lauren had a much better song than Scotty. But, the margin was much wider from Jessica to Phillip.

My early prediction this season was Kree, so I’ll stick with my gut instinct and say Kree is winning this thing. It’s been an incredible season (for girls), and I was happy to join you on this ride. Hopefully you keep enjoying my power lists (The Voice, SYTYCD later) over the summer. Here’s my Top 50. Post your favorites in the comments below.
