I felt quite bad for Martha Joy last night. It's so easy to forget how young many of these contestants are...I wasn't a fan of hers, but I wanted to go give her a hug. The support she got from the audience was very nice to see, though.
I admit I'm getting bored of this season already. I want to like Brian - I've liked all his song choices thus far - but I'm having a hard time imagining him as a successful solo artist. I see him more as fronting a band.
The most interesting contestant for me is Jaydee - I'm no fan of country music but I've always thought he has that "star quality" thing. (I felt the same way about Carrie Underwood.) We haven't had a country singer win CI yet, and if we must have one then it may as well be him.
