Your brutally honest ‘American Idol’ prediction: Jena Irene or Caleb Johnson?

American Idol” pundits breathlessly proclaim that the matchup is thisclose between blushing thrush Jena Irene and howling headbanger Caleb Johnson, but is that really true?

Check out the result of the “American Idolpoll we ran yesterday before the dueling songmasters faced off on stage: 64% of respondents say Jena Irene will triumph, leaving Caleb banging his bruised noggin against a wall, saying, “Hey, where are all the supporters people say I have?”

Good question, Caleb. We think there’s a difference between the raging pundits of the blogosphere (young males who rock out on air guitars) and the sweet 16 girls who do the actual voting. Yes, often those lasses pick guys with real guitars on stage, but those tend to be trim males of chiseled jaw and heartthrob swagger.

But we – and our poll – could be wrong, of course. Now it is time for you to make your prediction and compete against other Gold Derby users in our contest. Prize: $100 Amazon Gift Certificate. Click through the photo box in this article.
