Favorite American Idol Performances

Just for fun for those of us who enjoy this goofy show. This season's over and with Simon leaving, who knows what the future will bring? In any event, Idol has brought some great performances into our living rooms. Share some of your faves here.

This one's on my top 10 list for sure.

This year, I really liked Siobhan Magnus' version of "Think" (especially near the end around 1:18 ):



There are so many from past years. One I'll never forget is little David Archuleta, singing "Imagine":

Oh yeah - Bo Bice a'capella for sure! Don't care for Lambert, but did like his edgy/creepy version of Ring of Fire"

I really thought Bo Bice would have made more out of his career after being on the show. I did see him on TV commercials this season though. It may have only aired in our local area, since he lives in the general area I do. I think he had a lot of health problems after the season he was on the show. This may have hurt his mileage.

Bo's done pretty well for himself even though he did have some serious health problems. One thing I like about him is all the charity work he's done.

From his Wikipedia page:

"Bice was honored with the prestigious Lifetime Presidential Volunteer Service Award for volunteering more than 4,000 hours of his time for worthy causes, such as Habitat for Humanity, Katrina assistance, Muscular Distrophy, Organ Transplant, two concert tours for the military troops in Iraq, Kuwait, and Afghanistan, Safe House, and many others. In addition to the hours for which he received recognition, he has donated instruments, music equipment, meaningful personal memorabilia, and some of his own paintings to be auctioned off for charities."

No, I think she was about 6th. Lee DeWyze won this year:

My heart? Yes!

Seriously, I thought she was great. She works as a glassblower, so I think she's got that whole 'artist' thing going for her. Glassblowing seems like a great combination of art and technical ability. I don't usually care for anybody's rendition of Think! Aretha did it and that's that. But I loved Siobhan's version, very cool.
