We’re just 11 weeks away from American Idol‘s season 10 finale — how scary is that? — and so on today’s installment of Idoloonies, I take a totally premature swing at predicting who will be the final three contestants standing. If that’s not enough to get you to click “play,” my reader cohosts and I also bid adieu to Ashthon Jones, dish Paul McDonald’s sudden side-shuffle from glory, debate Casey Abrams’ record-selling potential, talk about what Pia Toscano needs to do right this second, and choose the very worst performances by a man and a woman during Top 13 week. Plus, we offer a wacky theory on why Lauren Alaina’s “Any Man of Mine” never got off the ground, a reason Haley Reinhart may need medical help, and a freewheeling chat with awesome semifinalist Kendra Chantelle. (I’m not proud of myself, but there may be a question about whether she’s, um, collaborating with Paul McDonald.)
So ch-ch-check out the Most Important Show on the Internet Right Now* and then post your own thoughts in the comments. And for all my Idol ridiculata, follow me on Twitter @MichaelSlezakTV!
