Best American Idol Contestants From Season 10

The Top Ten

Haley Reinhart Haley Elizabeth Reinhart is an American singer, songwriter, and voice actress from Wheeling, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago.

In the last 8 out of 9 seasons of American Idol, young cute males always won the show because young female voters power voting as a humongous voting bloc always voted for them regardless of how talented they were.

Although Haley was clearly by far the most talented contestant appearing on American Idol that season, she finished third in season 10 anyway, because those young teenage female voters voted for the young cute male again, Scotty, and the girl, Lauren, they were shipping him with. Haley was too old for Scotty. Nonetheless, Haley was clearly the best contestant that season by far and is the true winner.

Meanwhile, in the final, Scotty won in a landslide, of course.

The only season a female won was in season 12 when the Idol producers rigged the show so only a female could win. However, the level of talent fell off so much because of it, that Idol ended up losing most of their viewing audience and subsequently could never win them back, which eventually led ...more

THE BEST! I really don't know what was the basis of people's ridiculous votes?! - mood333

Hands down Haley Reinhart. She was by far the best on season 10.

She was one of the best contestant of all AI seasons

James Durbin

Yay! James Durbin Best American Idol Contestant EVER!

Paul McDonald
Casey Abrams

He is a pure talent, he has so much emotion.

He is my crush <3.

Pia Toscano

Pia was the absolute best contestant on American Idol Season 10.

Pia has such a strong and powerful voice, she can sing pretty much everything, when other contestants can sing only certain types of songs. I can see her being on Broadway or singing soul/RnB songs, but I can also see her being succesful in the mainstream pop industry. I believe in her and something tells me that she'll do great in the future.

Scotty McCreery Scott Cooke McCreery is an American country music singer. He is also known for winning the tenth season of American Idol on May 25, 2011.
Naima Adedapo

She was great at singing. I just think she had an unlucky night. - XDn-ArdX

Lauren Alania

Lauren was so sweet and funny. And she has an awesome sense of style. Country girl kinda stuff. Awesome.

Thia Megia

She is the most underrated American Idol contestant ever. She is beautiful, she is talented and her voice reminds me something of Jessica Sanchez.

To me thia was so generous, adorable and innocent, you don't see that much now (: but yeah her and katherine were the highlights of season 10 to be honest ^.^
