The Weetapidol Pool Waits for No Man (Not Even Seacrest)

Tonight, it appears that we'll be hearing from the Final Top 13 (wasn't it 12 last year? What's up with that, Seacrest?!) which means that you'll need to be thinking about your Weetapidol Pool Picks as you watch the show tonight. If you're interested in participating in the Pool, reply to this post with your picks ranked in order 1, 2, 3, etc, 13, with the #1 person being the person whom you think will eventually WIN American Idol in May and the 13th person being the person whom you think will be eliminated this week. Here are the Top 13, in no particular order:

Alexis Grace
Michael Sarver
Danny Gokey
Allison Iraheta
Kris Allen
Adam Lambert
Lil Rounds
Scott MacIntyre
Jorge Nunez
Jasmine Murray
Megan Corkrey
Matt Giraud
Anoop Desai

Participation in the Weetapidol Pool is free and the winner will receive some American Idol-related prize. Past prizes have included the Dreamgirls Soundtrack and Daughtry! CDs. In the event of a tie, Pie and Weet will contrive some sort of humorous tie-breaker, but let's be real, we're all doing this for fun. Your picks must be posted in the comments of this here entry by Wednesday by 8 EST/7 CST/6 MST / 5 PST.

What will you do, Weetapidolers? What will you do?

This year is going to be tough, I think, because it's hard to get a sense of who has a big following right now. So many people were voted off in big groups up to this point (I don't like the "eliminate 9, keep 3" thing). But for what it's worth, I'll guess:

1. Adam Lambert
2. Lil Rounds
3. Danny Gokey
4. Allison Iraheta
5. Scott MacIntyre
6. Matt Giraud
7. Alexis Grace
8. Megan Corkrey
9. Kris Allen
10. Michael Sarver
11. Jorge Nunez
12. Jasmine Murray
13. Anoop Desai

I am still deaf, but I'm hearing through my cochlear implants (YAY) which I got after last season ended. Music sounds kind of weird to me but I can still get a sense of how things sound, which is a big improvement. I am so glad you guys are still blogging the AI shows...thank you!!!

Wendi, I am so glad to hear about the cochlear implants! That's awesome news!

I will be making my picks later... I look forward to seeing how the Weetapidol Hive Mind does this year, too!

Well, after winning the booby prize last year, here goes nothing. And this "judges' twist" could throw a whole new wrinkle into things.

1. Adam Lambert
2. Lil Rounds
3. Danny Gokey
4. Scott McIntyre
5. Alexis Grace

13. Jorge Nunez

I honestly don't think Adam will win for a number of reasons (including my pet demographic theory) but I liked him too much last night not to put him first.

Jeremy, I totally thought of putting Alexis at the top as a spoiler. At one point I had her in second place.

I don't see Jorge leaving this week. He really wasn't bad, and he's got a solid voting bloc behind him...

Here goes nothing!

5. Scott MacIntyre

(Also, allow me to invite everybody over to my pool as well... no actual prize, but it's fun! Involves making predictions every week all season. Mo Pie and I tied last year.)

I originally had Alexis #1, then changed my mind at the last minute. I want Lil to do well, but I fear she'll go the way of Tamyra, LaToya, Melinda....

According to my own pet demographic theory, it won't be a white guy two years in a row. But there are more guys than girls, and most of them are white, if I recall correctly. So I don't know what to think!

Maybe Lil Rounds is the next Fantasia. Kind of a more mature, Mary J. Blige type artist, but without the quirkiness of Fantasia. We have had pop girl, R&B guy, however you classify Fantasia, country girl, Guy Who Was Supposed To Be Chris Daughtry, pop girl who duetted with that asshole Chris Brown so what is that, and rocker guy. Really no repeats...

Now I've confused myself.

This year is overwhelmingly white-guy, alas. I tend to go along with this analysis of how this year's semi-finals had the side effect of giving those in the majority more of an edge.
