Re: American Idol Top 12 - Week 1
It seems that the people who make it are ones who you can pretty easily classify in a short sentence. They fit some archetype. Lisa is just sort of generically good. Great voice, but I don't see any particular demographic that is likely supporting her above everyone else.
Paris, Taylor, Kathryn, Chris -- those 4 are my guess for the top 4. Chris and Kathryn will probably be the last 2....
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
