Our early ''American Idol'' favorites -- We pick who'll be left at the end of the fifth season of the Fox reality sensation

LIONEL RICHIE, KATY PERRY, RYAN SEACREST, LUKE BRYAN

MANDISA HUNDLEY
The plus-size pipestress should drop her surname as quickly as she did her hair during the Feb. 8 auditions. Fabulousness like that cries out for a single moniker.

CHRIS DAUGHTRY
Has won our love for being hot, devoted to his step-kids, and making us tolerate ”The First Cut Is the Deepest.” Now if only he’d lose the man jewelry.

PARIS BENNETT
She has lineage going for her — Grandma is Sounds of Blackness’ Ann Nesby. Plus, she has the opportunity to cleanse a very sullied first name.

KATHARINE McPHEE
The downside: She’s got a potentially grating stage mom tagging along. The upside: Have you heard that voice, Kelly Clarkson?
