1. Jessica Sanchez
Not only because Jessica has Filipino roots that I like her but because she is such one big bundle of talent. For me, she has the most powerful vocals of all the Idol hopefuls this year. She also has that certain confidence which can be seen on stage when she performs.
2. Elise Testone
Her husky voice is one great pleasure to hear. She is one great performer and a talented artist. Her piano skills are good and add that to her vocal range and she is definitely one to watch out for.
3. Halie Day
Halie is one complete package. She has the voice, style and the face. On her Top 24 performance, she looked like a star resembling Marilyn in some ways and she has the deep tone that she could really use to her advantage. Truly good.
4. Jen Hirsh
Jen Hirsh is one of the consistent singers in the competition delivering one good performance after the other. Her Top 24 piece might be a bit on a safe side but still we all know how wide her vocal range and prowess is.
5. Skylar Laine
I totally agree with the judges saying that Skylar is a fusion of country, rock and pop and she does it effortlessly. She may not have the strongest of voices but her stage presence and personality is truly outstanding .
