Last night, underdog rebel girl Haley Reinhart was voted off in third place on "American Idol," and today, I'm still bummed about it. And so is Season 6 runner-up Blake Lewis, who came by Yahoo! to commiserate with me.
Yes, since my usual esteemed co-host Matt Whitfield is out again this week, Blake was kind enough to stop by Yahoo! to fill in for him. And Blake is one "Idol" alum who knows his stuff: His "Idol" viewing parties are the stuff of legend (anyone from Allison Iraheta to Kimberly Caldwell to Elliott Yamin to even Blake's old friendly rival Jordin Sparks might stop by), and he also regularly blogs about the show, never mincing words.
It was awesome to hear Blake's take on things as we gear up for the "Idol" finale, almost exactly four years after Blake was in Scotty and Lauren's shoes. Who does he think will win? Who does he want to win? Watch and find out:
