American Idol: Blake Lewis, Jordin Sparks or
One of the most watched TV show ever, the
American Idol, is buzzing the Internet again, now that the
elimination and the final are coming.
want's to know who will win the American Idol. And it seems that
the hardest job these days is to make the odds for the winner.
The online betting website
Bodog, our choice for the
latest entertainment betting odds, has changed their odds of
winning the American Idol.
Jordin Sparks is still the favorite, with odds
5/9. But the latest rumors on the Internet are that we may see a
surprise tomorrow when America's votes are counted. We will not
divulge into this idea, but it could be a great marketing
strategy for the American Idol. Although Sanjaya was great, as
far as entertaining the public, it was really no surprise that
he got voted off early. And American Idol needs a "big surprise"
to keep people's attention for another high-rating year.
Could the surprise come from Blake Lewis? He
is the underdog with odds to win the American Idol at 9/2, and
let's be honest - many believed he will be gone before Sanjaya.
Last year's Idol was won by Taylor Hicks, but he still have
problems blowing up into a full star like Carrie Underwood, and
Lewis seems to be able to do at least gold, if not a platinum,
with a possible record deal.
Melinda Doolittle has been dodging elimination
quite successfully, always in the middle, this time her betting
odds have changed to 11/5. But she has been struggling with to
make an impression either as singer like Jordin, or as an
"oddball" like Blake. We think that the "golden middle" she was
able to keep throughout the entire American Idol will cost her
the final and she will be eliminated on Tuesday. Let's face it,
a final between a great singer like Jordin Spark and the
underdog Blake Lewis is a guarantee recipe for the most watched
American Idol final.
By the way, is anyone else getting really
tired of Simon, too?
