What was good about season one is the contestants had a specific genre and most did that pretty well. It wasn't all about imitating Carey and Aguilera and screaming out the end chorus, even though some did it. You'd have to go back and listen, LOC.
I like Joshua, but what big time label will invest in him commercially? There's a "demographics" issue with him. I would invest in Colton before Joshua in terms of commercial investment. They're are plenty of Holly's and Skylar's in the field already, so likely not many labels vying for first pick. Leaves us with Jessica. Jessica, with the right peeps around her, is a MEGA money maker.
