Jaime Escalante Will Win American Idol Season 9

The remaining 12 girls performed tonight on American Idol. The verdict? An all-around snoozefest. Save for the look on Simon Cowell’s face after fellow judge Kara Guardio channeled her inner Paula and commented that “Leona Lewis is her generation’s Mariah Carey”. Huh? Leona couldn’t carry Mariah’s, oh never mind.

It was painfully obvious that none of the 12 remaining songstresses will win Season 9, but Lilly Scott might have a shot at making the final on the strength of her rocking the Madam Mim look.

Personally, I think this competition is locked up. As this post’s title brazenly states, retired Calculus teacher, Jaime Escalante will take the disco ball, er fat recording contract come May 26.

Here’s Jaime on the right and in Idol form on the left (no pun intended my Russian readers).

And on a related note, to be sure, Mr. Escalante can count on this man for support:

    You are silly. He is my favorite guy for sure, but you are wrong about the girls. I am rooting for Siohban…cant spell her name.

    Wow, he should totally sing “Stand By Me” sometime this season.

    Totally agree about the female snooze-fest last night. Hopefully they get their act together.

    I don’t think there’s a specific song in “Stand and Deliver.” There is, however, a song in “Stand By Me,” I’m pretty sure. And, when I was younger, those two movies were pretty interchangeable for me. I’d say one and mean the other. I guess it’s still a little bit of an issue, lol.

  4. Aaron says:

    I bet he could bust out with some Hootie and the Blowfish, too.

    His cover of “Straight Up” was pretty good

    Siobhan mangus will win…she has the personality that makes her really stand out…I like Crystal, but I think later on in the competition Crystal will have to keep up with Siobhan…Lillie is good and like Crystal is a more folk singer..At the end..Siobhan, Crystal and Lillie will be left standing..

    • Laz says:

      Siobhan has a pretty good shot but if there is anything we have learned from previous seasons is that America likes vanilla Idol winners.

      Contestants who are “edgy” or “relevant” (read: multiple tats, multiple piercings, piercings in odd places, dreads, Madame Mim haircut) may go far but ultimately AI voters go with plain old vanilla.
