Why Blake Lewis Could Win American Idol

May 22, 2007 07:30 AM by Joe Blackmon

Blakelewis_finalEven though Blake Lewis seems to be the underdog by many accounts,
there are some very solid reasons why he could still win American
Idol 6.  Blake Lewis is one of the most original American Idol
finalists ever.  He’s not afraid to take chances, and taking chances
can sometimes pay off big.  If Blake scores with an original twist on a
song that he sings during the final performance show, it could very easily propel him
to an American Idol win.

The fact that Blake Lewis is thought of as an underdog could also help him in the vote.  His fans will be very dedicated in voting multiple times to make sure he has a shot at winning.  If American Idol has taught us anything over the years, it’s that dedicated fans can pull off an upset.

In the most recent results show, Blake Lewis also likely won some points with viewers over his positive relationship with his dad.  Often times the story on American Idol has been about parents who might not have supported their son or daughter’s singing ambitions, but it was obvious that Blake’s dad was 100% behind him.

Another positive for Blake is that he really appears to be a genuinely nice guy.  When Melinda Doolittle was eliminated during the most recent results show, Blake didn’t jump up and down and celebrate.  Blake immediately offered sympathy to Melinda, and it was obvious that he was more concerned with how Melinda was doing than with celebrating his continuation in the competition.  In short, Blake’s actions showed that he has a lot of class.

    I was hoping Melinda would win, but I do agree that the top 4 and the top 3 groups were appropriate. And I agree that Blake has been unique, creative, and has shown class. I can think of a few former contestants who celebrated when they were at risk and announced safe, and it has been refreshing to see the kind personalities this year.

    Melinda was my first choice since the beginning. I am really sad she’s cicked out.
    To Blake: nice guy, but I have difficulty with the word “unique”
    I liked his “Unique” he put in his song the first time, perhaps the second, too. But now he is sooo boring, there is always the same, nothing new. Only Be Be Be like a Goat. Sorry.

    I agree that Blake is definitely better than Jordin by a mile and a long shot. She doesn’t deserve to win. I would vote for Blake because he is not only better, but the best of all contestants.

    Blake should win. I think the girls had good voices, but Blake is exciting, different and with the way pop music is changing, he fits better in the position as “idol.” Jordin sounds just like any other diva out there.

    I adore Blake but I’m not sure I want him to win because the winner always gets stuck with some ghastly, sappy ballad as their single and that would totally not suit Blake. If he came in second he might be able to put out an original song of his own that wouldn’t damage his artistic credibility. The winner has no control at all over their first CD. I’m not so sure “Winning” on American idol is such a good thing when last year’s winner is fading while the finalists are all doing very well.

    Blake’s awesome! Clearly the most talented.

    Blake is by far most talented and unique, which is a VERY rewarding quality to have in AI, but i dont know if he should win, since the 1st place winner always seems to disappear. If blake could create his own, original album, then he can truely be seen as a individual musician. I do not think it is in his best interest to win.

    I agree,Blake is the most original contestant,he may very well score the win tomorrow night.

    I think Melinda’s votes are going to Blake because Jordin pretty much took her place in the top 2.

    everybody is hooraying over Blake, there is nothing original about his style. Beep Bop was introduced to the world my very well known rap artist is the early 80′s and went out in the late 80′s. So there is no originality, just a copy of what others has already done in the past. I’m all the way for Jordin

    You rock Blake!!! We are behind you 100% in VIRGINIA. You are a winner no matter what!!!

    I am hoping that blake will win, that’s why I will be up all night voting for him. Jordin is a spoiled brat who has had everything she always wanted. because of her wealthy father. She stole Melinda’s spot because she is light skinned. If melinda was light skinned and had jordan’s features, she would definately be the winner. I would rather vote for blake a million times than vote one time for jordan.

    Season 7, 8, 9 or 10 make come its way to produce greater singers but this season would be remembered for producing not only a SINGER but a MUSICIAN!

    2 words makes American Idol 6 be remembered among the other seasons..


    .. the non-mediocre American Idol.

    Jordin is gonna win, no question about it. Sorry Blake. You’re hot, you’re talented, you’re a nice guy, but Jordin is all those things as well, and she has a much stronger voice.

    Blake should win american idol because he’s cool, original, and a great singer. He doesn’t sing like a diva but his voice is still great! I feel sorry for him that he had to sing that cheasy song, “this is my now.” I will definitely buy his album.

    I wanted Blake to win, for a long time, now. He is multi-talented, with a great personality and good looks (which isn’t my first priority). He has done very well throughout this competition and done much more than beatboxing (I have all the shows taped). I feel he could have put more into tonight — and I truly wonder if he wants to win. In press, he’s been saying he thought all along Jordin or Gina would win and that Jordin is a producer’s dream. Is he trying to tell us something? He was set up with that This is my Now song, which was written for who they thought would be in the finals, Melinda, Lakisha or Jordin. It’s not written for a man’s voice, and certainly not Blake’s. That DEFINITELY should not be held again HIM, but against the SHOW, because that is totally ridiculous. They had 2 songs each years before, why 1 now…because they know Jordin could sing it better? To say she should win because a song was written in her style and key is not good judgement. I definitely want Blake to win, I only got about 12 votes in over 4 hours. The finale show seems a bit lackluster this year. The results show should be better, but it will be very difficult if we wait all that time just to see Jordin win, and also if Taylor won’t be on — this is their last chance to do right by their former winner, and I feel awful that there is bad blood between them. He should rightfully be on the show tomorrow night!!
    Jordin is a GREAT talent, but I just feel Blake deserves to win, and the comments he got were absolutely low down dirty from Simon and Randy. Not fair and takes so much enjoyment from the show. Anyone out their think that Blake may not have wanted to win — or that he was disheartened by many many saying Jordin would win? Interested in comments. Thanks. Blake, you are fabulous and you are loved! You give MUSIC a GREAT NAME :)

    The American People have fail American Idol 6. The show is about voting who is the best singer. This proves a lot of people are so dumb and NOT smarter then a 5th grader to follow a simple task. Melinda was indeed the best overall singer when it came to American Idol 6. I vote next year, they revised the calling in system.

    oh wow…Blake is really a great singer, Melinda was good, but she made everything sound so OLD! Jordin is most likely going to win but remember, American Idol is a reality show, they don’t care if its about the voice. you need to have the whole package. :3 blakey is a hottie tho!~
