Remo may know when gold is on the rise. When I'm in the mood, I can pick idol winners. Well, I've only picked one so far. But I picked her way early. Now, I'm putting my money on another one that I picked even earlier.
After season one when Justin had
the looks and Kelly had the voice, I didn't watch The Idol Show very
much or even bother to vote. But from time to time I've dropped in for
a few minutes just to see what's going on. Neither Clay or Reuben had
the looks. Only Clay had the voice. Fantasia has a voice, but not star
I saw Carrie Underwood sing when
she was one of twelve still standing. As soon as I heard her and saw
her I said, "That's the winner." And I didn't watch again until the
very last show and saw that she was one of the final two. Bo Bice was a
good lounge act at best.
This time I watched some of the
auditions. That's usually the most fun part anyway. When a beautfiul
dark haired girl with a huge voice and phrasing beyond her years
auditioned I made a note to myself. That girl could win it all I
thought. She had a stage mother who had been her voice teacher
since she was little. Except for that, I thought the girl had
everything she needed to be a star. So after all the noise about
Chris getting voted off last week -- I finally heard him sing and
wasn't impressed -- I watched the competition this week. Wait a minute
isn't that the girl I liked? It was.
No contest. Katie, Katharine,
whatever her name is, the girl I saw in the auditions way back when --
she'll win. She should win. That other guy, Taylor? And
Elliot, the guy just voted off? You've got to be kidding.
Yeah, I know. Even if I'm right, I'm full of s*it. But you knew that.
