Best American Idol Contestants

The Contenders: Page 3

41 Elliott Yamin

some say Chris Daughtry(who really only needed american idol to be known obviously didnt need to win... cuz he didnt) should have beat Taylor Hicks and Katharine McPhee ...but you are forget number three from that season... he was my fav i love his singing.. he is soooo talented

Elliott has one of the most soulful voices of our time. He was a little lacking on stage presence but I think the many times he shared a stage with Taylor Hicks helped pull him out of his shell.Some of the duets Elliott and Taylor have done in concert just bring the house down!

Definitely deserves to be in the top 10!

42 Haley Scarnato

She's got the sweetest voice since Olivia Newton John. Can't wait for her to release a CD!

43 Joshua Ledet

He has the most amazing voice I've ever seen, his passion for singing is so clear that it almost makes you cry, when I watch American idol at home and when joshua sings, I almost stand up and clap my hands. His voice is so powerful. Shame he didn't win American idol...

This man DESERVES to be # 1. Greatest vocalist alive. If you hear his cover of When A Man Loves A Woman and continue to disagree, are incorrect.

46 Melinda Doolittle

Melinda had the best voice ever on Idol. She lost to Jordin's cuteness and Blake's originality.

47 Skylar Laine

I'm a "skoutlaw" and I love Skylar, I think she's awesome and very underrated. She was the best in her Season. And she's a country girl and not like "country sweetheart" like Lauren Alaina, but a true country girl with rock style like Miranda Lambert!

O My Gosh..! She is totally had a great artist look! She almost looks like Miley Cyrus!

48 Lakisha Jones

So underrated on Idol.

49 Heejun Han
50 Kree Harrison

The purest and most angelic contestant ever grace American Idol stage.

51 Megan Corkery

She is so awesome and she has such a great tone and unique quality to her voice. Her best performance was definitely either rocking robin or out your records on. She is awesome!

52 Josh Gracin

Josh Gracin has a great voice and was the first Idol who made it big in the country music.

53 Justin Guarini
54 Candice Glover Candice Glover Candice Rickelle Glover is an American R&B singer and actress who won the twelfth season of American Idol.

She's lower than LEE DEWYZE? Candice is actually GOOD, move her up please! - DCfnaf

Why is she number 51? She won on one of the seasons!

People have squealed for Candice Glover!

Yes! Her image is up! Thank you admins! Isn't she amazing? Great voice and definitely deserves the top ten. - DCfnaf

57 Lazaro Arbos

He had his good performances I think he could have made it farther

He had his good performances he should have made it till the top 4

He wasn't so bad but he had some great performances
He had some bad ones. But he was great

58 Scotty McCreery Scotty McCreery

The only AI contestant I ever voted for. The only one who's albums I have ever purchased. He has improved by leaps and bounds over where he was when he won the show. His voice is just so great live! Better than anyone else I have ever seen live (and that's saying something)

Not one of my favorite singers but has had great success in the industry!

He has had more success than most of the people on the list!

Voted for Scotty from day 1, I knew he was the winner. Love this Guy!

59 Jena Irene

No idea why she is ranked this low because she erased idol history and rewrote it with performances like barracuda, heart attack, and we are one.

You guys! She should at least to be the top 10! She's so unique and incredible.

True artist, great range, kickass girl who should have won her season. She will go far without a doubt

Jena, she's amazing.
