Another American Idol Surprise
Was Carly Smithson your pick to win "American Idol?" I figured she would at least be in the Top 2 for the finals... until I watched last night's results show. Were you surprised too? I was, as I was last year when Melinda Doolittle didn't make the finals.
After Brooke White stopped and started again Tuesday night -- the first time that's happened on "American Idol" -- I thought she was history. Not so.
What's the lesson here? That most of the voters are probably teen-age girls, which means that the two Davids -- Archuleta and Cook -- will be the final two? What was not to like about Carly, except that tattoo? Or that she's from Ireland? (After all, it's American Idol).
By the way, Archuleta is leading our Cincinnati.com poll, followed by Cook. Last is Syesha Mercado, and next to last is Jason Castro. (Why is he still on the show?)
