11 Favorite American Idol Contestants* | Allison Iraheta (Season 8)
Season 8 was my favorite season because of the massive talent explosion  and Allison was no exception.  She had the innate capability to really get into the emotions of the songs she performed and created this electric feeling/connection to her.  I am so happy to see her again this season with the band!  
Audition
Favorite performances: Alone, Cry Baby (reprise during her elimination), Slow Ride (with Adam Lambert)

11 Favorite American Idol Contestants* | Jason Castro (Season 7)
Season7 was the first season I really watched and one of the first things I remember was Jason singing Mariah Carey’s I Don’t Wanna Cry and thinking it was pretty darn good so I went back and watched his older performances and really liked most of them.  He kind of came in as canon fodder contestant (no screen time prior to Top 24) but he really made an impression during the semi finals especially during 80s week (and he wasn’t even supposed to do that song!)Audition
Favorite performances: Hallelujah, Somewhere Over The Rainbow

11 Favorite American Idol Contestants* | Crystal Bowersox (Season 9)
Crystal made every song she sung on the show look so effortless.  Her voice and her sound is just so amazing and she let it speak for itself without any flashy gimmicks.  Plus, her hollywood week solo is probably my favorite from Idol.  She even had her competitors sing back up for her!!Audition
Favorite performances: Me and Bobby McGee, Up to the Mountain, People Get Ready

11 Favorite American Idol Contestants* | Sam Woolf (Season 13)
I have been emotionally invested in this kid since his audition.  The tone of his voice is one of the best I’ve heard on the show (clear as a bell, pure as spring water, pitch perfect). Prior to the top 13, I pegged him to be at least in the top 5 but he hasn’t had the most consistent performances but since I’m so heavily invested in him, I can’t help but root for him.  At 17, I think he still has a few things to work on like the emotional connection to some of the material he’s covering but once he unlocks that part, there will be no stopping him.

Favorite performances: Babylon, I Tried, Time After Time

11 Favorite American Idol Contestants* | Kris Allen (Season 8)
Kris is probably my favorite Idol winner.  I loved watching him perform every week and looked forward to it.  I would say he was the dark horse during a season with so much talent.  His penchant for rearranging songs and taking risks were much appreciated.  During top 3 night, the judges had kind of written him off after his performance of Apologize but he came out swinging with Heartless afterwards.  Oh Kris, never change.Audition
Favorite performances: Heartless, Ain’t No Sunshine, To Make You Feel My Love
