Between Clay Aiken and Ruben Studdard, who did you want to be the American Idol ? why?
I wanted Clay to win because he showed emotion and while Ruben had a great voice and was a music major, I wasnt compelled with his performances
Who was your favorite judge? Simon. Although he could be pretty harsh sometimes, he always told the truth without sugarcoating it. If people want to truly make it in the music business... then they better get used to comments that are similar to his...

What do you think about his record label dropping him? Do you agree ? Well, that's the music business for you, but they should've kept him
Your Opinion of...
Kimberly Locke : Beautiful and such a powerful voice (I cried when she sang Over the Rainbow)
R.J. Helton : Cutie with a good voice
Frenchie : Too bad she couldnt finish the show because her voice was awesome, but she's taking the whole "getting kicked off the show" a little too far for her own publicity.
Kimberly Caldwell : I loved her unique style and individuality but musically, she wasnt my cup of tea
Nikki McKibbin : I dont think she'll make it too far in the music business.... maybe with the rebels of pop music. But she was fun to watch!
Tamyra Gray : Wow, she was great on both AI and Boston Public!
Trenyce : She had a very soulful voice that I adored and I hope she makes it far in her music career
Carmen Rasmusen : I thought her voice was too country for AI. I was surprised she made it so far. Her vibrato was WAY to much at times
Charles Grigsby : Very nice voice but I didn't favor him
Christina Christian : Although she was extremely pretty, her voice was too "young" for me
Julia DeMato : Very pretty and I would like to see her more in the future doing her own thing
Have you ever tried out for American Idol ? not yet
What was your experience ? n/a
Are you planning on trying out next season ? HECK YEA!!
Are you excited for next season? What do you expect ? I'm expecting the competition to be very tough and I look forward to it!!!
Any other opinions you want to include ? I LOVE Clay Aiken! I also thought that World Idol was pretty cool and Heinz was absolutly ADORABLE with an AMZING voice. But Kurt deserved to win because I was mesmerized by his voice.
Do you consider yourself an "OBSESSED" American Idol Fan ?! Not entirely "OBSESSED" but very interested in the show, it's contestants, and all the talent it has to offer for music lovers like me
