To be totally honest, I’ve been doing these American Idol polls for the last few weeks mostly because I can’t wait until like, 10 PM to hear the show’s results and I always think I’m going to get a feel for what’s going to happen if I ask you guys.
My friend Richard told me he’s pretty convinced that Scotty’s got the top three on lock and he would know because he’s basically the #1 American Idol expert. I personally cannot wrap my head around this because I don’t understand who Scotty’s audience is (do teenage girls really give a shit about croony old country music?) and I think Haley is just so clearly the best in the competition. I also think little Lauren brings a lot to the table, what with her only being 16 (adorable!) and after her town was recently devastated by a tornado, she cried on the show. Teens, tornados and tears are the three Ts of being a champion in this game, I’m thinkin’.
But seriously, guys? If Haley doesn’t take this thing I’m going to do something real drastic. I just cant understand why they didn’t shut down the whole competition and cut the season short after hearing her rendition of “House of the Rising Sun” last week.
So what do you think?
