My Top 10 Picks To Win American Idol Season 17

They are all so unique in different ways, and you can't help but love each and every single one of them.


With the Top 20 just being announced on American Idol, here are my top 10 picks. It wasn't easy to pick just 10, considering everyone this season has been so amazing and has truly brought the talent. They are all so unique in different ways and you can't help but love each and every single one of them.

Alejandro Arando

Alejandro's voice will send chills up your entire body and if his voice alone isn't enough his guitar playing in insane as well. He's amazing in every single way and he's everything an artist should be. All in all, he's a gift to the world of music.

Eddie Island

Aside from his voice, literally everything about him is so unique. Not only does he have a great voice, but his personality is awesome too! As Eddie would say, "Welcome to the island."

Laci Kaye Booth

Laci has a beautifully special sound to her voice that you'll want to hear over and over again. She's also been referred to as "the next Carrie Underwood." If that doesn't say it all, watch this video.

Laine Hardy

Laine has changed the game. He was a contestant last season, but since then he has grown leaps and bounds as a musician and has surprised us all. His country rock style will easily melt your heart.

Walker Burroughs

Walker is one of my personal favorites for his unique and extremely controlled sound. He really knows how to use his skills and style to truly showcase his talent. He makes every song his own and that's what an artist is supposed to do. I could listen to him over and over and you should too!

Wade Cota

Wade kills it. He knows how to captivate an audience. His voice has so many levels to it and it makes him that much more interesting. He's also extremely humble and has no idea how talented he is. You just can't help but like him.

Madison Vandenburg

Madison is so talented. She is someone I — even Judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan — compare to Kelly Clarkson because of her looks, style, and incredible range. She digs deep and doesn't hold back at all!

Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon

Jeremiah has a stunning voice and knows how to prove his talent through his song choices. He puts so much emotion and passion in his performances. He will make you feel whatever he is feeling while singing and that's something so powerful as a musician.

Riley Thompson

Riley may be the youngest contestant this season, but she's definitely not letting that hold her back. She has such a beautiful twangy sound as a country artist and she's killing it.


Uche can belt that's for sure. He demands your attention and never holds back. He knows the style he's trying to convey and does a great job at showcasing it. He is bringing back the funk and I love it.

Thanks for reading my top 10 picks. Hopefully, you found some contestants you like too. So make sure to turn on American Idol on ABC to find out if my top 10 picks will actually make it to the top 10.

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

21 EDM Songs for a Non-EDM Listener

For those of you that don't know, I am a radio DJ at IUP, and I DJ for a show called BPM (Beats Per Minute). It is an EDM, or electronic dance music, based show and I absolutely love it.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
