Ousted "American Idol" contestant Lacey Brown was my 3-year old granddaughter Alex’s pick as her favorite after she saw the top 12 perform.  “I like her hair….it’s like Allison’s (Iraheta) …and she looks like Adam (Lambert)” were her exact words. 

She was very impressed by the earrings worn by the contestants…both male and female.

Alex is a BIG Adam Lambert fan.  She has his new CD and knows the words to all of the songs he sang on the show.  In fact, a photo of Adam Lambert adorns the wall in her room.  At age 2 ½, she attended her first "American Idol" concert this past summer, and she’s hooked along with the rest of our family.

Siobhan Magnus, Lee Dewyze and Crystal Bowersox are the favorites of the adults in my circle of family/friends.  The teens LOVE Tim Urban, and that’s one of the reasons for his undeserving longevity thus far (the other one being VFTW.com). 

The tweens’ faves vary – Nicky T. (10 yrs.), a very passionate fan, likes Aaron Kelly, Siobhan Magnus and Casey James.  Deanna T. (8 yrs.) likes “Big Mike” Lynche, Casey James and Andrew Garcia, while Jason P. (10 yrs.) is all for “Big Mike.”
