IDOL thoughts

After watching the chicks do their thing last night on American Idol, I'm convinced this is going to be a guy's year to win.

At this point, the competition is over, with 17-year-old David Archuleta by far the best singer of the remaining 20. Like the judges said last night, hopefully the others learned something from Simon Cowell's comments on Tuesday, when he said there were "19 miserable people" after Archuleta belted out John Lennon's Imagine.

And that's the other thing? Why doesn't EVERYBODY listen to what Simon Cowell has to say? He's really the only one of the trio of Randy "Dawg" Jackson, Paula "Sleepy" Abdul and Cowell who knows what he's talking about. Well, Randy does too, but he gets lost by the time Paula's finished her praise of every contestant who ever graced an Idol stage.

After tonight, 16 will be left. Should be interesting...

cowell doesnt really know what hes talking about. his talent is making people (like you) Believe he knows what he is talking about. he has admitted Paula is technically the best judge of the 3, the one who really has a good ear for music.
