The winner of AI is rarely the one I would have picked. I thought I would start a thread where everyone could post their favs & see if we have any kind of consenses on who should have won & who should have been runner up.

Season:
1. Kelly Clarkson / Tamyra Gray
2. Ruben Studdard / Clay Aiken
3. Fantasio Barrino / Diana DeGarmo
4. Carrie Underwoon / Vonzell Solomon
5. Elliott Yamin / Chris Daughtry
6. Melinda Doolittle / Phil Stacey
7. David Cook / Carly Smithson
8. Adam Lambert /Allison Iraheta
9. Siobhan Magnus / Casey James
10. Haley Reinhart / James Durbin
11. Erika Van Pelt / Skylar Laine

I have only watched part of seasons 3,4, 6 and all of 10, 11.
3. I liked Fantasia, but there was another girl I liked - LaToya?
4. There was a guy I liked early on who left - Mario? I stopped watching after that till the end. Carrie was a worthy winner.
6. Melinda all the way. I liked Jordin ok. Also LaKisha and Phil.
10. Pia/James
11. Joshua/Jessica

I bet I'm gonna have a way different opinion than most everyone else. I guess this is more who I wanted to win/finish 2nd than who actually deserved it, but you wanted us to list our faves, so...

1. Kelly/Nikki
2. Clay/Kim Caldwell
3. Jennifer Hudson/Amy Adams
7. Jason/Brooke
8. Kris/Alexis Grace
9. Casey James/Siobhan Magnus

Season 4 I loved Judd Harris. But, he didn't make finals, so I didn't bother watching the finals.

I really loved season 7. Jason, Brooke, Cook, Michael, Carly. Archuletta and Syesha had great voices. I even somewhat liked Amander Overmyer and Kristy Lee Cook (not 8 Days A Week though).

There are certainly some talented folks who have graced the Idol stage but only Adam Lambert held my interest enough so that I would watch the show. Re the others: I just caught snippets here and there from season to season.

You know there are hundreds of thousands of good singers in the world---the way Adam reworked each song always intrigued me. I look at Tom Cruise in "Rock of Ages" and would rather see Adam in the role. I hear Tom did a creditable job though.

I wish William Hung had gone through. Sure, he made an album, but he could have done much more.

Clay, Melinda, and Adam are the big "deserved" winners for me.
Clay and Adam seem to be doing very well without having won; although I'm sure that the exposure they received as a result of AI really helped the process.

Elliot and Casey, whom I love, are making the kind of music they care about.
Their experience on Idol made that possible.

I don't remember who is from what season, but I agree with Taf's list for the most part.

I didn't watch seasons 1-3 so can't vote.

I had no problem with Bo as Carrie's runner-up, thought they got it right that year.

Melinda was the most wuzrobbed in AI history except for Adam, don't even remember the others!

Daughtry should have won, McPhee second.

Cook/Carly -- yep.

Totally agree on Adam/Allison.

And haven't watched it consistently since, although I did like Erika the best this year and when they voted her off, I found other things to do most Wednesday nights.

Oops, ETA to say I thought Crystal Bowersox should have won her incredibly lackluster season.

The ones who I wanted to win the most but didn't were Adam, Kim Locke, Carly Smithson and Melinda Dolittle. At least Adam made it to runner up status. Carly just didn't connect but her voice is one of the best to ever come on the show, IMO.
