I stocked up on Jordin early, but unloaded most of my Blake. Let’s just hope that the voters come through next week.

i’m amazed melinda got kicked off; i think it must have been that “goody goody” attitude she always had. She was trying to be a bit more edgy but i just don’t think it’s her. she’ll definitely get a record contract though and do quite well for herself. Blake on the other hand just seems to have no talent; I’m not quite sure why he’s still on at all…

Melinda clearly was the most skilled, but I wonder whether or not she is already at the top of her skills. She was good at the start and wasn’t much better than that at the end.

Jordin has much to learn, but she has clearly learned at lot over the course of the program and may have more long term potential.

Blake is a good entertainer, and likely pulled in a lot of the teenage girl vote.

All three will likely do well enough post-AI. Frankly, I’m surprised that I have an opinion on any of this.

(I only care because I have Inklings on the line!)

Do you suppose it had anything to do with this?

Supposedly, they were responsible for keeping Sanjaya on for so long

I have to say that I’m somewhat annoyed that my own market is fueling my rivals reign at number one… Darn you OneMike! I’ll get you some day!

laxrulz777   •   Wed May 16 2007 at 06:53pm PDT

The Market is back open but temporarily suspended until someone gets voted off (personally I’m thinking Blake)… will close out one stock and unsuspend after the results

mstretti   •   Wed May 16 2007 at 06:42pm PDT

Why is the market closed now. The biggest bets should be made now!!!

cdomigan   •   Thu May 03 2007 at 06:57pm PDT

I never watch American Idol, but damn that Melinda girl is good.

cygnusx3   •   Tue May 01 2007 at 04:48pm PDT

My wife does…

Who cares…

Shoot this market needs photos! :) This is the first time I’ve ever watched this show, and just started watching it 2 weeks ago. So I still don’t know anyones name :) Except that Sanjaya kid.
