I've always championed Seasons 5 and 8, because of how strong the Top 5 were for both seasons. What do you guys think?

LOL no competition Season 8 (Kris Allen, Adam Lambert, Danny Gokey, Allison Iraheta, Matt Giraud) :bowdown:

Season 8 didn't have the best Top 13 (Season 7 did) but season 8 had the best elimination order ever, leaving us with the best Top 5 ever :lol:

Season 5 is a close second.

I'd say Season 3 was just as strong. :shrug: Incredible Final 5!!

If you look at the last few seasons, men have really dominated the late stages of the show -- especially white men.

Of the last 15, only 4 are women. And this is the first time since season 7 that more than 1 girl made it to this stage of the season. Of the 11 men who made it to the final 5 of the last 3 years, 9 are white men -- or at least I think they are all white:

Kris
Adam
Danny
Matt
Lee
Casey
Aaron
James
Scotty

The last three winners of the show have all be white men, too: Lee, Kris and David Cook. Numbers show Scotty or James, both of whom have never even see the bottom three, have huge chances to finish with this season's title. My guess is that Lauren will be the only one who can break the party with her Miley/Taylor Swift gimmick.

Actually I love Season 8 as well. Matt is a bit of a mess in there. But the Top 4 was rather strong. I have a problem with Season 5 with Paris; not that she was bad, per se. I just feel like season 3 was the strongest. But 3, 5, and 8. Hands down!

S5 had the strongest top 5, maybe one of the strongest top 12 ever.

The best? Well for me probably Season 5.:shrug: Season 8 was mostly a one man's show (Adam, until the top 4 when Kris was showing some threat) .:shrug:

But for me my fav top 5 were S7 (Davids, Syesha, Brooke), S4 (Carrie, Vonzell, Anthony) and S8 (Adam, Matt, Allison).:cheer:

Of course you have to recognize it, as he ended up being not merely a threat but also the guy who beat the Rock God :rolls:

I don't think he was a threat to win before Heartless

I think James is more of a rock god than Adam.:shrug: :p

He's probably more rock-inclined than Adam but Adam still shows him up in that genre :tape:

I agree with both. Kris broke the Danny/Adam show right around Heartless.

James is annoying.

Season 3 and Season 5.

I prefer female singers so the last few seasons have been mind-numbingly dull for me.
