Place Your Bets On American Idol S14

Okay, the title sounds weird, but I know you know what I mean! With AI entering its new season, Randy Jackson leaving the show and new judges on the hot seats, it's time to place your bets on who's winning the only singing contest that produce the future Grammy winners. Don't get me wrong, I'm totally a The Voice fan (rooting for Bladam, baby!) and the Got Talent franchise produces the coolest people, but the Grammy winners! Anyway, some people hate the new judges but I agree with the show producers that they're the best Idol has ever put together. If you need a background, I'll tell you what I know about these guys. Keith Urban is the Australian, country (I didn't know that this genre's even big in Australia) awesome guitarist/singer, J Lo has been getting it on the AI floor since S10 & S11 and I'm pretty sure almost everyone on the planet knows her, Harry Connick, Jr. I was shocked that most auditioners didn't know who he was, he's only the best crooner of our day (I'm sorry, Michael Buble)

Anyway, I've only seen the Detroit, Austin, Georgia (PEACHES!) and Boston auditions so far and so far, so good. Boston's open was a great start for the new season and Austin's got guitar-bringing folks aplenty. I loved seeing Seacrest with his mom in Georgia, but so far I've only found a few great auditioners. Deb and my favorite so far is Ethan Harris, who the judges think is the 'long lost Osmond brother' but for a '94er like me who had to Google 'Osmond Brothers' before knowing who they were, he looks more like Harry Styles of 1D (yep, it's the hair)

What about you, who are your season favorites?
