My Idol Predictions: Just Call Me Miss Cleo!

Not to gloat or anything, but in my American Idol Beatles Night recap on Tuesday, when making my elimination prediction, I wrote the following:

"I think it's going to be either Kristy or David H. Syesha's not totally safe either..."

And who was in the bottom three the next night? Um, Kristy, David H., and Syesha! Man, I should open my own Psychic Hotline. Or my own bookie service...

To be honest, I'm not a complete clairvoyant, because I really thought it would be Kristy Lee Cook, not David Hernandez, who'd ultimately get cut this week. David H. had a lot more potential than Kristy, and a much stronger set of lungs. He probably wasn't going to win in the end, but he still deserved to stick around another week or two before getting axed.

I'm sure some people will cry homophobia here, but keep in mind that David made it through last week, RIGHT after his gay-stripper scandal exploded in the media. No, in this case I think it just came down to poor song selection and a poor performance--nothing more, nothing less.

Just be glad David made it into the top 12. He won't have to go back to Dick's Cabaret any time soon!
