‘American Idol’ prediction: Why Jena Irene will triumph and Caleb Johnson will be crushed

Sorry, Caleb Johnson fans: It’s time for a reality TV reality check. Jena Irene will win “American Idol” regardless of the deluded prattle of lunatics like Marcus Dixon who give you false hope.

Jena has exceptional talent – a bewitching cry in her voice that gives JLo “goosies” and the rest of us hope that “America’s Next Superstar” (the original title of “American Idol“) is born. She commands the stage like a budding Madonna who really knows how to put on a show.

Meantime, Caleb looks like an unwashed stoner who stumbled into the Nokia Theater looking for the garage metal band he lost in the 1980s when he missed the tour bus. Marcus argues that he’ll win because, well, “‘Idol’ voters favor guys over girls” in general, adding, “It’s no secret that the vast majority of ‘American Idol’ voters are pre-teen girls who rack up their parents’ phone bills every year as they vote for whichever finalist they find the cutest.” True. And that’s why he’s going to lose. Caleb’s not cute. He’s a dumpy wannabe of dubious talent, who sounds like he’s strangling cats every time he pretends to “sing.”

By comparison, Jena is sexy, alluring and – with the proper stylists, arrangers and manager – the next Kelly Clarkson/ Carrie Underwood. You see, when the girls who vote for “American Idol” don’t have a cute male contestant (with talent) to back, they often opt for a female vision of themselves en route to glory.

  1. Jena is only the frontrunner because Idol is basically rigging it in her favour. They think that if a younger girl wins AI, then it would get more ratings for the following year.

    I am still in the Caleb boat. I will go down with the ship.

  2. This was completely unnecessary and highly biased and opinionated. There was no need to throw Caleb under the bus like that and no he does not look like a stumbling drunk like you so crudely stated. Jena is unique and an amazing singer but Caleb is better vocally and his performances are electrifying and that is why I believe he will win. He may not win but regardless, both he and Jena will do well for themselves as most American Idol finalists have in the past. Caleb is not a wannabe nor does he sound like a strangling cat. I think you need to get some sleep and get a better attitude.

  3. Jena way outshines Caleb…..Caleb has no talent Harry speaks truth and see this. Jena you deserve the win…Caleb should not represent American Idol no talent and no class.

  4. America will see the talent…finale should have been Alex & Jena. There were even better contestants voted off that were more talented then Caleb. He is all hype and scream. When he sings ballads you can see his oice is clearly not good, and the screaming doesn’t prove talent. If Caleb wins he will burnout fast he has nothing different to make him stand out. Nothing! Hope america gets it right. Talent should won Go Jena!

  5. I think whoever write this article is a jerk and doesn’t know way true rock and roll is. I would also bet that they used to be the typical schoolyard bully. Btw…no matter the outcome, Caleb all the way…both are extent talented and will be very successful and no doubt, Caleb will always have more talent in his pinky and success under his belt than the author of this article could accumulate in a lifetime.

  6. You are entitled to be a critic without making crude comments that not everyone agrees with. I didn’t seen Jena get a standing ovation from the crowd like Caleb did last night. I’m not saying that Jena isn’t good but the cheap shots you took at Caleb reflect pathetic journalism.

  7. I’m sorry Tim O’Neil, but I can’t hear you over the amount awesome radiating from the adorable rock god that just won this contest.
