It is down to just three. The ones I thought would be the final three made it, Jena Irene, Caleb Johnson, and Alex Preston. They are the final three contestants in American Idol. Johnson, the resident rocker and Preston , the poetic troubadour, join Irene in the final episodes to decide who rises as the new American Idol.
I believe that Jena Irene will be that winner. I admit that Caleb Johnson is a strong contender. However, it has been a while since we have seen this quality of female singer who can join the ranks of former winners like Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood. She is extremely talented and is marketable. Irene is just an amazing music artist.
However, the stars of Johnson and Preston are not diminished. They are on their way to being forces in the music industry.
When Jennifer Lopez went up to embrace Irene after her stellar performance of the Elvis Presley classic of I Can’t Help Falling In-love with You, it symbolized the powerful force that Irene is to her audience and growing number of fans. Her voice resonates a unique quality that is pure and is now.
Now lets see how the vote goes in the next couple of weeks.
