We loved Jennifer Hudson right from the start. Week after week, she gave stunning performances on American Idol. One of our favorite moments was when she sang "Circle of Life" from the Lion King Soundtrack. You left us feeling all warm and fuzzy on the inside.

Although we enjoyed all of David Cook's performances last season on American Idol, we especially liked his edgy version of the Lionel Richie song "Hello." And to answer your question David, yes, you are the one we're looking for.

Carrie Underwood was a front runner almost all season, but her performance of the 80' hit "Alone" further advanced her lead. She brought us right back to AquaNet and leg warmers.

Clay Aiken had an amazing voice right from his first American Idol audition. Throughout the season, he just kept getting better and better... and then he sang the classic "Bridge Over Troubled Water." Complete with gospel choir and all, Clay brought the house down.

First, we just have to give Constantine credit for attempting a Queen song... but Bohemian Rhapsody? And in front of Simon on American Idol? We must say, it was a risky move but he definitely pulled it off.

Fantasia Barrino's story stole everyone's heart on American Idol, however, it wouldn't be long before her voice would be come a front runner in the competition. Everyone, including us,was completely enamored by her rendition of "Summertime.

Kelly, Kelly, Kelly. As the original American Idol, you must have had at least one of the greatest performances, and indeed you did. There were several we could have chosen, but we thought you especially rocked it when you sang "Stuff Like That There" on Big Band night. Right from the beginning, it was obvious you were destined for
