he is more like dave matthews then dave cook , i know some one tried to use that as a lame atempt as an insult but if he sang dmb on idol that would be pretty awsome. i can easily see him being in the finale , but its pretty early , other people have looked great now and just bombed on the live shows.

"new and fresh?" Nope. Bet his favorite musician is Dave Matthews.

They can't allow this guy to go to lives. IDT Idol can withstand another Lee Dewyze type winner with under 50K sales.

@chessguy99 OMG, I totally forgot Lee D! So, we had Cook, Kris Allen, Lee D, and Scotty McC. Yes, there's no room for another WGWG.

@Mikhail XO Don't forget the plaid shirt.

Plus: He already has a bit of Taylor Hicks/Scotty McCreery quirkiness when he sings. And he already did a "remix" of another song making it contemporary (Thriller) ala David Cook and Kris Allen.

And he wears flip flops.

This guy knows what he is doing. He's in it to win it.

@laff@chessguy99 There can always be another! This guy is it! He has a bit of everyone in him!

Covering MJ was a good move for young Philip Hicks Cook Allen McCreery. Plaid shirt and flip flops to give plenty of room for progression in 'the look'. But then again ... remember Tim Urban. It doesn't always end well for these types, Rickey.

@Mikhail XO@Rickey I agree, the 3 judges stink up the whole joint. But the overall vibe of the show is so much better than the other singing comps. It's more evil, more ridiculous, and, well, it's IDOL. And they have Seacrest <3 <3 <3

@laff Well I like The X Factor. Idol is a bit "tame" for me now. LOL! You mean you didn't watch the shock after shock eliminations? :(

I'm honestly really looking forward to The Voice now. Steven and J.Lo said "it's beautiful" and "it's wonderful" for almost every audition. I really want to see new and interesting things on TV. People will complain that the auditions are too long again on Idol maybe next week. :)

@Rickey I see what you're saying. Unless he chokes in Hollywood, or gets the Chris Medina edit, we're gonna hear a lot of "he's in it to win it" tossed around.

(OT) - Btw, isn't Idol so much better than XFactor? Even with Simon and Paula in it, I found xfactor WAY less fun than Idol, and barely watched after the first few episodes.

@laff Oh yes. But in fairness, I think last season, a couple of the auditions in the "pimp spot" got eliminated in Hollywood, so there is a chance that this is a fake out. But still... he has all the qualities of what a typical Idol fan who has been watching for 10 years wants. A full blown "go to his hometown" treatment like this should not be taken lightly!

@Rickey Mmm, good point. *sigh*, guess we're looking at Top 5 minimum, then.

@laff Tim Urban did not get the star treatment of a premiere episode. :)
