A quick Idol Prediction:
As of yesterday, pre-show, Scotty had it in the bag. He's a better performer and doesn't act like a scared kid half the time.
Then the show started, and there was the whole, "Lauren almost couldn't sing! Here's a doctor!"
And then Scotty's single sucked.
Then Lauren hugged her mom.
I think the Idol people knew that Lauren was going to lose, and they know there's money to be made on her.
My prediction: Lauren takes it tonight.
Scotty has a longer career, as Lauren has no idea what she's doing.
I still think the smart thing to do would be to get them both on tour together.
As a bonus, they need to cast them both in a Disney movie based on the book "Jenna and Jonah's Fauxmance." They'll have to Southernize it a bit, but it would easily be the next "High School Musical," if they did it right.
And those are my thoughts - 30 minutes until the truth comes out.
