Yes, I'm Starting a Topic on American Idol....

How can cultural elitists like ourselves put TV in the Culture category? Well, where the hell else is it going to fit?

So, who is everyone voting for?

P.S. This isn't a forum for those hating on Idol.

OMG! Danny Gokey rocks my world! He is soooooo talented and really brings the lulz. I hate Adam Lambert and what he did to my Danny.

P.S. Kara ROCKS!

It's kind of anticlimactic now, as long as Gokey is gone! I'd like to see Adam win, but I don't mind Kris. Both blow doors on the beatbox twit from which season? Was that just last year?

What do they get to sing tonight? It's not gonna be some lame new song written exclusively for Ford, Coke and Idol, is it?

It's rumored to be:

1. Song Chosen by Producer
2. Inspirational/Victory Song written by Kara
3. Best-Of - something they already sang - singer's choice.

No those are the "commercials" not the actual show. I realize there are so many of them that this point could get confusing. I do believe "Ford, Pepsi, and Lipitor" is the name of the first single off the upcoming Taylor Hicks album though.

I've never seen this show. And I watch a buttload of TV.

I hate that Lambert kid and his emo haircut and all his screaming and sticking out of his tongue. You people actually vote? I've never met anyone that has ever called into one of those things.

Years ago I voted once in a while. Back when I used to watch more than once or twice per season. I often wonder how their vote tabulation system works. On the one hand, they like to puff up the numbers by reporting the number of votes instead of voters. On the other hand, they surely don't want to be subject to the whims of the few who have multi-line autodialer banks and/or pc programs to spam calls. Other shows like it have openly stated that you can vote a certain # of times. AI just has a nebulous statement about the voting system in the lightning-fast closing credits.

I voted the year Taylor Hicks won. I couldn't stand him and the fake "soul patrol" schtick so I voted about 100 times for Katherine McPhee, if that's how you spell the name.

I watched this year, but never developed an intense enough hatred to make me vote for their opponent. I actually think Adam is more talented than the average Idol winner (I'm assuming he'll win).
