American Idol

Ok look, I know it's not cool to like American Idol, but I do. I honestly do. And I know that at least some of you do too, because millions of people watch it and I know I'm not the only one here in all of the Central Valley. Usually I really start watching during Hollywood week, and this year did not disappoint. I loved Ellen, am already missing Simon thinking of him gone after this season, and had fun trying to guess who'd make it into the top 24. But what I really love about American Idol is the goosebump moment, when someone takes me by complete surprise and I'm left thinking "Whoa. I wanna hear that again!". This happens once or twice a season, and it's already happened this go-round with Andrew Garcia's  acoustic version of Straight Up by Paula Abdul. I thought it was mellow, soulful, and totally surprising. Here it is:

So clearly Andrew is my current favorite. Who knows if he still will be next week. Who's yours?
