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:
