My Pick, Your Pick, God’s Pick

Here’s your chance. Time to weigh in with your Idol pick. You didn’t think I’d let American Idol go by this year without a mention on the blog, did you? :)

Idol has been loaded with talent this season. In fact, I think this particular group of finalists, especially now that we’re down to the top five, shines like no other group has in previous years. The contestants remaining are definitely the cream of the crop, each one with his or her own unique abilities and sound. At this point, it’s exciting just to see what they’re going to do from week to week.

With that said, let’s go ahead and get down to the nitty gritty. Who’s your favorite? Your pick to win it all? As much as I like Danny and think he’s super-talented, my number one pick is Adam. He simply outshines everyone consistently from week to week. As far as I’m concerned this season, he’s in a class by himself — vocally and performance-wise. Every time he sings, he does something to amaze me. He’s crazy good.

Now I know we’re going to have some differences of opinion on this matter of a favorite — that’s okay :) Go ahead and sing the praises of your pick with a comment. It’ll be fun to see who you all are pulling for and why.

Okay, we’ve done my pick and your pick — now what about God’s pick? You know what I think? I think He’s already picked them all.

In fact, He’s already picked us all. He’s crazy about us. He loves us so much He sent His Son into the world to make a way for us to be with Him forever. He is “not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance(2 Peter 3:9b KJV) and spend eternity in heaven with Him. Yes, He loves us all. Amazing, huh? We need only to accept His love and place our faith in Him.

So as for me? I choose Him back. I’d say He’s in a class all by Himself. He’s crazy good!

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16 KJV

  1. I have never watched the show…sometimes I think I am the only person in America who has never seen it.

  2. Annette, you should give it a try sometime — you’d probably get hooked on it like me :)

    In fact, I’m surprised other die-hard fans of the show haven’t jumped in proclaiming their favorites. Where are all you American Idol fans?? :)

  3. Chris has been my favorite from the beginning. I think they’re all great, except the chick. I don’t like her at all. There you have it…


  4. I am with you all the way. I started out loving Danny and I still do, he’s a worship leader after all. But Adam has an extra measure of talent that outshines them all. He’s extremely creative and it’s impossible to predict what he’ll come up with. In my books that’s talent. Still love Danny boy though! I suspect Adam and Danny will be the final two.
