OK, I'm ready to line up my Top 3 Picks (of my original picks) for Season 9.
First out of the gate is Bowersox by two lengths, followed by Dwyze, followed by Lynche bringing up the rear of my early-on favorites.
I'm thinking however that NOW James and Magnus are closing rapidly going into the second turn, and could easily fall-in a few lengths behind Bowersox. I don't think James has the stamina to succeed in the long hall and Magnus appeals more to the screamer crowd and that too could be short-lived.
Lynche will soon be out of the running, and go home to his wife and new baby,
Dwyze is coming on as a dark horse but lacks the needed personality to become a star,
Bowersox, if her health holds, will easily prevail and go on to participate in the Triple Crown.
All of the above will acquire great exposure from the upcoming Idol Tour and will of course sign contracts of their own outside of the Idol monopoly. One more surprise was little Kate. Kate has some great potential also outside of the clan.
