Andea and Kaz, here’s a tip: If you love American Idol this much, I’m sure that the films you make suck.

Hi Michael,

My boyfriend and I read your blog all the time about American Idol on EW.  It’s genius.  You are genius.  We think you should make a list of the top 25 best idol contestants (to make the top 12) of all time.  We got so excited thinking of what you would write, we literally stayed up until 3am the other night making our own list.  It’s really hard.  We got stuck between our favorite contestants to watch and the contestants who have done the best after Idol.  I mean, to me there is no question Bo Bice and Melinda Doolittle are up very high on that list.  I loved watching both of them each week.  They were pros, yet they haven’t made a ton of money after Idol.  I guess it should be about best performers on the show, because Bo and Melinda are stars to me.  I’m guessing all the winners would have to make the list, since they won, and even though Taylor Hicks hasn’t done that well since Idol, I enjoyed watching him each week.  Season 5 was the best season of all time, even though he’s the worst winner.  Every person in the top ten was so fun to watch on Season 5.  Paris Bennet?  Why is this girl not a huge star yet?  She obviously needs a good producer.  My boyfriend is a music producer, and I keep telling him to find her and produce her.  Anyway, you are the Idol genius, so make up your own rules, but we’d love to see your list.

Anyway, thank you for providing us with so much entertainment.  I think you should replace Simon.  I mean, the judges are just bad this year.  I keep yelling at my TV to tell the contestants what they mean.  They say the same things over and over, and it’s not really that helpful.  Simon confused poor Kately Epperly and called her corny.  That girl should be in the top 10 with Lili and Alex, but don’t get me started.

Ugh.  I have to get back to work trying to figure out a strategy to sell the latest film I produced.  I’m an indie producer.  If you are bored and feel like a bit of teen humor, check out my film:

Not many people produce indie teen comedies.  With all the Idol fans and Glee fans, I think we have a shot, but it’s hard to get the film out there since it’s not a festival film.  But enough about me.  PLEASE write your list of the top 25 American Idol top 12 finalists of the first 8 seasons.  People would LOVE to read it.  After each person, please tell us why you liked him/her and your favorite performances.  If you need a refresher, most of them are on YouTube.

Thanks, and keep writing!  You make us so happy!!!!!!!!!!

-Andrea (and Kaz, even though he doesn’t know I’m e-mailing you)  HA!
