Forecasting 'American Idol'
We ponder the chances of eight favorite contestants from the reality show, including Danny Gokey, Anoop Desai, and more
We hunkered down with our American Idol experts to look at the chances of eight favorite contestants. Don’t forget: Even if they’re voted off in their semifinal round, there’s always the wild card.

Matt Giraud We like Matt Giraud, but Lil Rounds has gotten so much airtime she could kill a puppy and still make the top 12.
Anoop Desai Danny Gokey might be the judges’ fave, but Anoop’s got the chops and the best name since ”Ruuuben!”
