”Idol” Watch: countdown to the finale
We’ve got finale fever! Which contestant (one of whom is now history) will weep with joy on May 23? Our odds:
MELINDA DOOLITTLE: 2-1
Still the one to beat, thanks to consistently solid, pitch-perfect performances. So why aren’t we more excited?
JORDIN SPARKS: 5-2
Sure, her take on ”Woman in Love” was pitchy, but she has all the style and magnetism Melinda lacks.
BLAKE LEWIS: 5-1
Look, the kid’s got charm for days. But is there a Beatboxers Anonymous group we can sign him up for?
LAKISHA JONES: 10-1
Oh, Kiki, why did you mess with ”Stayin’ Alive”? You turned a disco classic into a gospel-brunch fiasco!
