American Idol 9 Top 7 Power List!

Here’s my power list for this week. What do you think of my list? How would you order the Idols this week? The list isn’t my preference, but how I think they rank going into the Top 7 performance show.

  1. Crystal Bowersox – Crystal is still at the top.  Yeah, she’s had a lot of press this week that could be characterized as bad press. But, I think her notoriety is going to help her this week. Plus, she’s freaking amazing, and still clearly the most polished and assured of the remaining performers.
  2. Lee Dewyze –  Some members of the press have crowned Lee mostly likely to head into the finale with Crystal. And I would say, at this point, his stock is really high, even if he hasn’t quite provided that defining “moment” yet.
  3. Michael Lynch – Michael was standing next to Katie last week when she was eliminated, but according to Seacrest, he hadn’t even hit the Bottom 3.  He had a decent performance on Tuesday, and I think he’s still riding on the good will of the Save.
  4. Casey James – Last week, Casey was back to his generic ways, delivering a competent, but stiff performance.  Still, I think the dude’s got people. If he has a memorable performance this week, his stock could rise.
  5. Tim Urban – Oh Timmie. Behind your big sweet smile, I think you’re sly as a fox.  I don’t think he’ll win, but a Top 5 or higher finish would not surprise me.  The buzz about him in the press is not hurting him, either.
  6. Siobhan Magnus –  Siobhan has to find her footing fast, or she’ll be a shock (or not so shocking) boot within the next few weeks.  This week’s performance is very important for her.
  7. Aaron Kelly – Aaron isn’t improving from week to week, and I’m afraid the tween vote is being sucked away by Tim. If he gives another mediocre performance tonight, I think Aaron is a goner.
