The biggest star to appear out of Season 9 of “American Idol” so far is clearly General Larry Platt. Of course his fame will be of a far different kind then that which will be thrust upon the winner of the contest in May. UPDATE: The General was on The View this morning, performing “Pants on the Ground.” And on Sunday, Brett Favre and the Minnesota Vikings sang “Pants” in the locker room.
Starting today, each Monday I’ll be rating the “American Idol” contestants, selecting the singer I believe has the best chance to win the show.
In these first four weeks, with dozens of golden tickets to Hollywood being awarded, I’ll be rounding up the contestants that we know have made it beyond the initial audition. Until this first round is over, I’ll be sorting the contestants into groups depending on how far I predict they will get on the show. As weeks go by, I’ll move contestants up and down as we add new players.
I won’t be surfing around the Internet looking for Hollywood Week spoilers. My ratings will be based strictly upon what I see with my own two eyes on the FOX broadcasts each week.
