AI Hollywood Rounds : )

American Idol Hollywood Rounds Break My Heart Once again…

It is no secret that in the past I fell for contestants during the audition portion of AI and they were CUT way too early! I wrote about it back in 2009. Why do I do this to myself?!?!?! Anyways this year is no different my favorites have already been cut. I tried hard this year to avoid getting too attached to people early but once again I found myself really pulling for Rob Bolin and Chelsee Oaks (yes the ex-couple from Nashville). I kept telling my husband, I really only care if Rob and Chelsee make it! DOH!!! Why oh why can't I just wait to have a favorite!

I LOVE when they sang together and for some reason he just drew me in because it felt like he really loved/loves her, you know I am a sucker for a good love story. Something about their connection was so appealing and just warmed my heart. I almost feel sorry for Chelsee’s current boyfriend because you know all of America is routing for these two to get back together. I hope one day we will see that they are married and dueting together! Also they seemed like real musicians and the type of people I would go to workplay (local venue) to hear. If you are like me, you have already searched and found Rob and Chelsee’s music and love it! Here are some links to their music:

So now that they are gone : ) I am routing for:

Casey Abrams (he is an awesome!)
Chris Medina (who can route against him with a back story like that)
Lauren Alaina (she is ubber talented for 15 and she seems extremely likable)

Who are you routing for this season? Has your favorite already gotten the boot?

I really hope I didn't jinx him?!?! I try so hard to not get attached but how do I do that???? I guess I should just start watching when they pick the top 12...who am I kidding that is never going to happen :)

Rob is so compelling because he is clearly sad over the break up! I was pulling for him the second I heard the back story! But when they sang together I lost it! Then when he came out with the golden ticket and had no one to hug but Seacrest! He is a lovable character! His voice is haunting and gritty and smooth! It is so beautiful! He is a star! I am a huge fan!
