Daniel Kikin does a great job with these challenges; I hope he doesn't mind I use his pattern for the contest.

Welcome to the American Idol HTF Challenge. Each person will get to pick one contestant for champion. Each contestant can only be picked once for champion and that pick will be first come, first serve. Then pick three contestants who you think will round out the final four, and these three contestants will not be exclusive per participant, meaning the same contestant can be added to any final four. Points will be awarded if your contestant is the champion, in addition to having any of your final four (including your champion pick) finish in second, third, or fourth place. The points scale is as follows:

First place (champion pick): 25
First place (final four pick): 20
Second place: 15
Third place: 10
Fourth place: 5

Here is the list of contestants, more info can be found at the FOX American Idol website, along with the general HTF discussion thread here. I'll list each contestant with their age and where they're from. As each contestant is picked, I'll denote the selection by adding the forum user's name as the selector.

NolanJ,
We've "stuck" this thread to the top of the section (like the other contests) to make it easier for you to deal with once all entries are closed.

Travis beat me by a minute for Mandisa. I'll bow out as there isn't anyone else I want to back to win.

Nolan, by all means, good to see other challenges around though, glad to contribute with the template Posted Image These are becoming an HTF tradition for reality competiton shows!

I never got into American Idol so I won't take the spot of anyone who's a fan of the show and wants to participate, but if there's an empty spot before the competition begins, I'll throw in my pick, I can't resist an HTF challenge. Posted Image

Argh, ya beat me to Katherine. She was the last choice left who I think has a shot, followed by Ace (a real long shot!).

Since it doesn't matter at this point, I'll take Melissa 'cause she's freakin' hot. Posted Image

The rest of the final four:
  • Mandisa
  • Taylor
  • Kellie (tough call between her and Chris -- they both have adorable back stories, but people don't remember Chris', and Kellie's singing is improving)
Silverman out!
