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 quality.

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.
