American Idol: Poll of Younger Viewers Reveals Surprise Favorites
New poll shows American Idol viewers in the tween age range (8-12 years old) have two contestants in a close tie for top place.
Leading the poll is 20-year old Casey Abrams, the quirky, bearded bass-playing contestant who only made it into the Top 10 because of the judges save. Lauren Alaina, the 16-year old from Georgia with the country twang is a close second. Interestingly, Stefano Langone, arguably the contestant with the most mainstream tween-pop style (a la Bruno Mars) came in last place by a wide margin.

Franktown Rocks founder and CEO Rob Solberg says he considers Casey’s high popularity among tweens to be a great sign that the younger generation is open to more than the slick pop music foisted on them by Top 40 radio. “And we love that because that’s a big part of our mission with Franktown Rocks; we want to expose kids to great music, period.”
Franktown Rocks has started an online poll to allow kids to vote for their favorite contestants each week at www.FranktownRocks.com/
