American Idol 9 Last.FM Standings 1

Tuesday March 16, 2010

I did this last season with American Idol. I decided to start earlier. Last.fm is a site that keeps track of what you listen to either on your computer or MP3 player. Famous artist have hundreds of thousands of fans and millions of listens. This tends to dictate who is popular. Last season when it was Kris Allen and Adam Lambert stayed at the top two slots for the entire season. When Kris Allen won he was the person with the most listens.

I’m going to list them based on who got the most listens—the most being at the top and the least at being at the bottom. Under each Idol I’m going to put their top 5 listened to songs. People can title them as they wish and that is what will be listed…the most popular title. If they actually bought the song it’ll have (American Idol Performance) after the title of the song. If they did not buy it - it will be titled without. Maybe you can see who actually has support via who purchases a song or not. They do get a portion of the money from the sells off Itunes.

You can see the intelligence of the fans based on the top 5 titles. How? Take a look at Casey James’ fans. There is a difference in “don’t want to be” and “don’t wanna be”. Don’t even get me started on how Michael Lynche fans title their songs…

For the song they performed the previous week I’ll post the name and who originally sang it and then if it is in their top five I’ll put it in a different color to show how popular a song choice it was.

Shouts are how many comments they have on their profile. This could either mean they are well liked or that people are just being asinine and attacking them telling them how worthless they are and shouldn’t be on the show…or they could be shallow talking about how OMG hot they are. No matter what reason it does indicate, as well, popularity.

Next week they’ll be a difference in position as well as plays and listeners. I’ll show the change in position from the previous week as well as how high they’ve went in plays and listeners. It’ll be a difficult little list to keep up, but I’m gonna do it.

It’s very time consuming to do this, which means I need a better hobby---or better use of time. Ha. I just find this very interesting and that’s why I like doing it, even though it does take a while to get this together.

Had Alex stayed (he was one of my favorites) he would have been number 2 favorite on this list. I’m going to keep listening him if he continues to get this much attention on Last.fm. Hopefully someone out there who has the money to help him will. They’ll have themselves a little goldmine.

All my favorites have made it to the Top 10. I have never lost one before, and now that I have it solidifies my thought that once Simon is gone...so is the show. Then guess what website won't exist? Votefortheworst -- They only exist because of American Idol.

American Idol is on tonight. The Top 12 [sans my favorite =( ] will be performing songs by the Rolling Stones. Check your local listings.
