I didn’t expect to pick a favorite so early in the American Idol game this season, but from day one, I fell in love with Charlie Askew.
He has a sweet, unique voice. He’s adorable as all hell. And I just love his stage presence and style. And from all the comments on You Tube, it seems he’s already stole America’s hearts!
Check him out, doing Elton John’s “Rocket Man”:
My favorite Charlie Askew quote is “I glorify weirdness.”
On a side note, I wasn’t going to watch the show this year. In the beginning I did not like the bickering between Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey, but that has subsided, thank you Jesus!
I never even heard of Nicki Minaj before this show and she really turned me off because she just seemed mean. But now, watching the show, she grew on me big time. I just love this woman! She’s sweet and funny and really gives great input/feedback (although I’m not always agreeing with her). I also think she’s gorgeous when her look is more toned down. Now I’m a big fan of make-up and hair and extravagance, but not everyone can be Cher or Dolly Parton. In my opinion Nicki doesn’t need all that. She’s a natural exotic beauty. The dark wigs and the toned down blonde ones are the best for her.
And she’s so cute when she flirts with the contestants. I love that! She’s endearing in that she reminds me of my grandmother who used to flirt with everyone. So, yeah, go Nicki! You’re awesome.
Now back to Charlie — I’m so glad he made it to the next round. My favorites always go way too soon, but keeping my fingers crossed that he will stay for awhile. (And I’m sure MANY other viewers feel the same!)
