Most Underrated American Idol Contestants


The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Colton Dixon
22Jasmine Murray

She is the most underrated finalist of season 8, for her voice was immature during her time on the show. However, she was still better than Michael Sarver, Matt Giraud, Megan Joy, Kris Allen, Alexis Grace, Danny Gokey, Anoop Desai, and Lil Rounds. She was sabotaged during the semifinal round. She should have gotten 5th place, not 13th place. The judges should have saved her instead of Matt Giraud.

She was very underrated her voice may not have been completely matured yet but still she was better than Micheal, Matt, Meghan, Danny, and Anoop!

He should have made it a lot farther than he did! The fact that Scott Savol and Anthony Federov beat him irked me

Some said she was a better vocalist then Kelly. I disagree, but she was still way underrated after the show.
