I keep trying to come up with someone, some place, some how who thinks for some reason that Adam Lambert will not be the A-I for season No. 8.
As yet I haven’t come across anyone who begs to differ in a legitimate way.
From one on-line betting service comes these odds on the seven finalists:
Adam Lambert – wager 235 and if he wins you get back 335
Danny Gokey – wager 100 and if he wins you get back 380
Allison Iraheta – wager 100 and if she wins you get back 1100
Kris Allen – wager 100 and if he wins you get back 1300
Lil Rounds or Matt Giraud – wager 100 and if either wins you get back 1700
Anoop Desai – wager 100 and if he wins you get back 3600
So, you can see that Adam is the overwhelming favorite and the longest of longshots is, in a way surprisingly, Anoop.
Another unscientific way of looking at the final seven is the number of folks who have signed up to join them on Twitter. As of Sunday here were their totals:
Lambert 10,583; Gokey 6,113; Allen 1,895; Desai 1,565; Iraheta 1,196; Giraud 258; Rounds 92
