My prediction for the next American idol

Why Chris, you ask? Because there is doubt about Adam's sexual preference. He will not comment on that question. (Not that there's anything wrong with that!) I just think the "vote market" is greater for Chris than Adam. Chris has the girl vote AND the guy vote. I, a 50 something, angry, white man would buy a Chris Allen CD. Would a NFL loving, 20 something, straight guy buy an Adam Lambert CD? We'll see tonight.

I was sorry to see it get into a blue state / red state thing. Not a bad marketing ploy by Fox though. I like both artists although I actually voted for the first time - for Chris. Should be an interesting show tonight.

You were right - Kris is the winner! Adam in the last 3-4 weeks became too much of a rocker. I'm sure the producers of the show encouraged that in order to create a greater story line. It seems like it worked from a marketing standpoint. Almost 100 million votes! I bet in a couple of years you will be able to click a button on your remote in order to cast a vote for a contestant.

Yep. A buck a vote. And I heard Simon Cowell gets a third of it each night.
