I Predict A Guy Wins American Idol This Year

American Idol starts in 15 minutes. It's down to the final 12... 6 boys and 6 girls, and I'm making the not-so-bold prediction that a guy will win this season. A lot can change in 12 weeks, but I'd say the Archuletta kid has the best chance. As far as the girls go, I just don't see a star.

Over the years I've followed American Idol with the help of my DVR. I speed through each episode and decide who I like, get annoyed at Paula for being weird, and enjoy hearing what Simon has to say. If I had to pick my top three favorite Idol contestants, I would choose:

1) Chris Daughtry - season five
2) Kelly Clarkson - season one
3) Lakesha Jones - last season

After a horrible season last year (besides Lakesha) that had me hoping the show would end, American Idol is pretty entertaining once again. I don't vote, and I mostly tune in for the top 16 until the person I want to win gets booted, but I must admit, I do casually watch.

At this point I'm rooting for Archuletta, but definitely think it'll be a boy who is crowned American Idol this year. And then I predict we won't hear about him again until a news report surfaces that his record label has dropped him (can you say Taylor Hicks or Ruben Studdard, HA!).
