Yes, I'm a fan of American Idol. I've been watching it since the original season. I'll also admit I'm a Simon Cowell fan. I like him because he tells it like it is.
Now for this season, my favorites are David Cook (not just because he's from the Kansas City area) and Carly Smithson. I feel they're the most talented.
My prediction is that it will come down to David Cook, Carly Smithson, and David Archuleta as the final three. I don't, however, feel that David Archuleta has what it takes to go all the way.
Now here's an interesting point I'd like to make about one of the other contestants: Jason Castro.
Look at these pictures:
On the left is Jason Castro; the right is Alyson Hannigan who played Michelle in American Pie. Do you remember her? Maybe "and one time at band camp" will trigger your memory. Do you see the resemblance? I can't help but think about that line from the movie every time I hear and watch Jason Castro speak.
Think about it next time you see him on American Idol.
