We wait every year for Randy Jackson’s controlled take on the current season of American Idol whether it is feedback on the contestants (good and bad) or who he predicts the winner will be. He has now made his feelings known and we were not disappointed!
According to Randy Jackson this season of American Idol has brought out the best talent yet of all the seasons. Yes, we have heard that before…even Randy himself admits that! However, he says that after so many years of American Idol that, “People have seen every other brand of artist. But these kids are different than any other season we’ve had, and I think these boys are some of the most talented we’ve ever had.”
Yes, Randy Jackson is predicting that like last year, one of the male contestants will take the prize of American Idol Season 8 champion. He does say however, “I mean, there are some great girls as well. But we’ll see who goes through the ranks, because there’s a lot more show to go before we get to the end.” That is the most true statement yet. Personally, we like Alexis Grace who went on to the top 12 last night, but we wouldn’t mind if Danny Gokey won the whole kitten kaboodle as well!
When it comes to two of the most annoying, and to some, entertaining contestants, Tatiana Del Toro and Nick Michell (aka Norman Gentle), Randy Jackson tries to explain why they got into the semi-finals of American Idol Season 8. As for Nick, Randy says, “[Nick's] a bit of a comedian, but when he puts his mind to it, he’s actually a really good singer; he’s actually got a voice there,”
He isn’t so sure with Tatiana however, “I know that there’s a voice there somewhere, too. And also, you know, what’s interesting always to us is you go, ‘Who can I remember out of seeing, you know, 100,000 people?’ ”
Don’t expect Randy Jackson however to talk about the Joanna Pacitti dismissal. He coyly states when asked, “I don’t really, really know all the details about it,” he said. “I think it’s just one of those unfortunate things that happens sometimes.” Good boy…just plead the fifth!
