Season 11 of American Idol premiered last night in the glorious city of Savannah, GA.  I'm biased.  See, I went to Georgia Southern University, which is roughly 45 minutes west of Savannah.  My first job in radio was at Kix 96 in Savannah, I worked from midnight until 4am.  For free.... (can that really be considered a "job"?)  Anyway, I love Savannah, so I was really excited last night to see American Idol start there for season 11.

People from the South are great, their accents alone put a smile on my face.  And damn, can they sing!  Here are my favorites from last night -

Phillip Phillips, we will see him in the finale.

 

David Leathers, Jr.  AKA Mr. Steal Your Girl

 

Lauren Mink, her story melted my heart.  God bless people like Lauren.

 

Who was your favorite?  I really thought Idol was going to have a crappy season, but so far, so good!  I can't wait for Pittsburgh!
