    As far as "the biggest star in the world right now" goes,
    I think it's probably Madonna, since her album is number one in the UK and Europe.
    Additionally, she's in the Top 5 on the list in the US and Canada.


    Vocally, I thought Archie was better than Cookie last night,
    and his song choices were better.
    I agreed with Simon that, competitively speaking,
    it would have been wiser for Cookie to have done Billie Jean or Hello again.

    However, I did read that a lot of people were mad at the judges for throwing Cookie under the bus last night, and the anger/revenge vote came out big time for Cook.

    According to DialIdol, Cook will win tonight,
    but it doesn't count text votes.

    Whether or not it was calculated reverse psychology, it worked on me.

    Yeah, I think it has to be. The judges aren't in the same bubble as the contestants, and they have to know what a phenomenon Archuleta is. There's no way Simon and the rest can have done this for as many years as they have without realizing that negative comments makes people vote. I think Simon just wants Cook to have a fighting chance.

    Wow, I never thought that it might be reverse psychology. I always thought that the votes tended to follow the judges' opinions, except in cases where the voting public fixates on a middling contestant based on personality (Castro, Sanjaya, Chicken Little).

    I don't know what to hope for. I really don't want Archuleta to win because it would be a triumph for everything people don't like about pop music. AI has always rewarded bland, malleable competence, and that's what Archuleta is. He's perfect for them because he's cute, can sing, and has no apparent point of view as an artist. He's a lump of clay ready to be molded. I think it's bitterly ironic that the judges are always bleating that what they want most is originality.

    On the other hand, I don't want Cook to win because I think it can only hurt him. He's a little older and more sure of who he is as a singer, and he needs the guidance less than Archuleta does. Winning would trap him in that awful record deal that results in terrible, boring albums that nobody buys. I think it's been proven that winning is no better than finishing in the top 3 or 4 as far as having a successful career. Cook is probably better off losing and finding his own way.

    In the end, I guess I want Cook to win because I just couldn't stomach it if Archuleta did. Plus, I want to see Pa Archuleta's face when Cook is announced as the winner It looks like it might happen, too...DialIdol is hardly ever wrong, and they're predicting that Cook wins handily.
    Everybody have fun tonight. Everybody Wang Chung tonight.

    I share your wish to see Cook win, although if he does, Father Archuleta will destroy the rest of young David's life.

    I'm glad the receiving clerk at work told me the finale was on tonight. It's a cavalcade of 80s stars.

    Definitely reverse psychology...I remember him mentioning a few years back that whoever he came down hard on ended up staying in the competition and I kinda wondered if he'd ever play that card to his advantage.

    Did you see that fat triumphant on his face when the winner was announced? Oh yeah, Simon's a sly devil...and I love him for it.
