American Idol May 15th Results Predictions

It's just too close to call.

On the bright side, this is the most equally matched, talented final 3 we've ever had the pleasure of seeing on American Idol. There is no stand-out gimme dump that we're all looking at thinking, how on earth did he/she make it to the final 3? Vote for the worst, with their mighty Stern empowered sword, has failed this season, and the true fans and real talent have prevailed. That is the bright side.

The bad part? Some incredibly talented person is going to get the boot tonight. Some devoted fan base is going to be heartbroken and pissed off. Some will cry foul and post negative comments about the surviving final 2. Petty, petty. Bad sportsmanship.. and really missing the point.

Here's the thing. All of our final 3 will get record deals. All of them. You can bet the contracts have already been inked. This year, that's not what the win is about. Hasn't been for a couple years now with AI, right? This year, the show has become what it was always meant to be: a competition and celebration of the best of the best.

We've been honored every week by Melinda's truly phenomenal talent, and we've watched her incredible journey of self-esteem. Miss Melinda Doolittle will never hide her talent under a bushel or behind another singer again. Melinda came into this competition as a ringer - a true professional, and she set the vocal standard every week

We've watched Jordin grow up before our very eyes. In 11 short weeks, a star is born. A superstar. When Jordin takes the stage now, you can't take your eyes off her. She is that electric, that magnetic. Jordin draws you in with that phenomenal voice, and then she builds and builds and gets better every single week, almost like a small child with language acquisition - Jordin's been a sponge for everything the folks at AI have been teaching. We should all take a lesson!

Blake has singlehandedly re-invigorated the entire show, and upped our expectations for future artists and seasons in the process. A complete musician, Blake has brought the show into the into the computer age, as the sole idol in total control of his own arrangements. Every week, Blake ups the ante, takes the risks and makes it work.

Tonight we will have to say farewell to one of these incredible Idol hopefuls. It's not gonna be easy, but it's also not gonna be forever. Whoever goes will definitely be back, and in a big way.

My prediction: This year, our final three, have already all won.

Agree totally Carolyn....

The three left are all very
talented and will make a fortune
when they exit AI....

My vote and hope to win
AI is Jordin... but I won't
be disappointed if she doesn't
win... they are all very
deserving young people...
