Remember how I deemed Danny Gokey “too Hicksian”—as in Taylor—to be a commercial success, and thus a bad Chosen One for this season of American Idol? Well, I might have been more right than I initially thought; according to this interview with Fox’s DC affiliate, Gokey, Alexis Grace, and Michael Sarver have taken to calling themselves… wait for it… The Blue-Eyed Soul Patrol. I’m guessing that Alexis, being young, is just getting snowed by the two older guys. Right? Please? [MyFoxDC; HT DHMBIB]

    I feel nauseous.

    Jackie Tohn was way more Hicksian.

    @whoneedslight: Agreed, in a Noo Yawk way.

    Personally, I see Gokey as a better-looking Elliott Yamin (with not as much genuine singing talent and pureness of intent).

    The only good thing I have to say about Gokey is that he did not fake-comfort Tatyana in a remotely convincing way. That said, the tables usually turn on front runners sometime in the second act of this competition.

    @whoneedslight: David Cook had a pretty smooth run last year, though.
