The revamped “American Idol” is taking the country by storm. Not only did they create a new stage, giving viewers a 360 degree effect — there are viewers behind the stage — but we now have new judges Jennifer Lopez and Stephen Tyler. For the most part, it appears that “Idol” viewers have loved Lopez and Tyler (Not Surprising).
Season 10 has more surprises than just with the judges or stage. Thia Megia is “American Idol’s” very first 15-year-old. “Idol” changed the rules to now allow those who are 15 to enter the competition. Was this a good decision? If we look at Thia Megia, we know it was an excellent decision because she is a star in the making. The moment Thia begins to sing, she sort of pulls viewers closer to her with her magical voice.
Not much older is Lauren Alaina. The second we heard her sing, we knew Lauren was a star in the making. This girl has pipes, stage presence, and is beautiful! This is a complete package all wrapped up in a 16-year-old girl. Alaina has the ability to make viewers and judges smile the second she steps on that “Idol” stage.
Scotty McCreery is a good ole country boy — and he’s just 16 years old. When we hear him sing in that low voice he has, we have to say that this boy was born with talent and was born to sing country. Some stars tend to go country then switch to pop or another genre. Scotty has the ability to make a career out of singing and he will do it well!
These three young “American Idol” finalists might be young, but they have the ability to make something of themselves. When we saw Chris Daughtry sing, we knew he was something special. He didn’t win the “Idol” show but went on to become extremely famous. That is what we could see with these young singers. Some people are just blessed with amazing voices.
The great thing about this Top 13 is we have a lot of young talent for many different genres. We have McCreery, Alaina, and Megia all in their teens. We also have Abrams (19) and Reinhart (18). The list continues with more amazing talent — we are going to have a WOW season for sure. This Season 10 is going to be action packed with youngsters becoming “Idol” stars. Pick your favorites and get ready to vote because we are in store for a real treat!
