I am not ashamed.....

I watch American Idol. Yes, I am a 29 year old, pregnant woman who watches this show every week, faithfully.

I've got some favorites for this season....

I've been a fan of Carly Smithson since the beginning. Just something about her won me over during her very first hometown audition.

Another favorite of mine- Brooke White. Again, I've liked her since the beginning. I loved her Carly Simon song two weeks ago and LOVED her Pat Benetar song this week. I think she has a really unique voice and hope to see her get into the Top 12.

Jason Castro has won me over with his style of music and his "shy" attitude. I think he is really in the competition for the singing, not for just stardom. He just seems so humble and the music industry could really use that!

David Archuleta won me over in Hollywood. His big grin and bigger voice have my vote for the Top 12. I think he'll be in this competition for the long run. And, he sang one of my all time favorite songs- Imagine.

I wasn't a fan of David Cook until he made the Top 24. I'm a huge fan now! I think he's another really original musician. Who else could take a Lionel Richie song and put it to an electric guitar?! Loved it!

I really, really, really liked Michael Cook in the beginning. I was completely won over when he did "Bohemian Rhapsody". Unfortunately, that was his best performance for me. He has yet to really wow me since then...

So, c'mon fellow AI watchers... who are you rooting for?

I haven't been watching Idol this season, but various radio shows seem to agree with your picks. (I recognized the names!)

And I like the 'I'm 29 and pregnant and watch Idol'. hee hee. I'm a college graduate that loves True Life on MTV. (It's a good show!!)

You and I would make such great friends IRL. I like the same people! However I have to say I am rooting for the guys over the girls.

Those are every single one of my favorites too! My dh loves David A. and really wants to see him win. We first saw him about 4-5 years ago when he was little on Star Search. He had a much higher voice and could "blow"! You can find a video on Youtube.

Those are all my same faves, too!! My overall fave is Carly and then David. But Brooke, she's so darn pretty and her voice is so similar to the folky singers I love. You will kill me when you find this out. I get to go see Oprah for my birthay and Simon Cowell is going to be on it!!!!!

I don't like Carly, something about her bothers me and I am not even sure what... just an oogy factor, and I think Jason is totally on dope. I agree with your other choices though. I told my daughter she could marry little David A... he is just too cute and sweet. I don't like many of the women this year, but I really do like Brooke, she is unique. My fave is David Cook though.

Well, they've all had good nights and bad nights, but overall, I think my favs are:
David C.
I even wrote a post where I gave them "Mc" know like McDreamy & McSteamy. I'm a dork - I know.
