Group #1 Is Revealed

Group #1, which we will vote on next week has been revealed. And it is…

Casey Carlson
Stephen Fowler
Jackie Tohn
Ricky Braddy
Ann Marie Boskovich
Brent Keith
Alexis Grace
Michael Sarver
Stevie Wright
Danny Gokey
Tatiana Del Toro
Anoop Desai

You know, the interesting thing about dividing the Top 36 into groups is that it’s no longer about the worst two performances. It’s about the three most popular people. And my guy Danny has drawn a tough group…

Remember that the top female vote-getter, the top male vote-getter and the top vote-getter from the remaining 10 will go through to the top 12. Danny is probably popular, but he’s in there with Brent and Michael. Plus, Anoop has a big following already from his UNC a capella group. I am really worried. And considering the females in this group, I’m afraid there’s a real shot that Tatiana could go through…

Now I know there’s a Wild Card round that can still save Danny if he doesn’t go through, but I don’t want it to come down to that. Whatever he sings, however good or bad it is, I’m voting A LOT…
