American Idol Finale: Whose Now Is It?

Last Idol review of the year is posted on the Time.com homepage. The final night played out pretty much as I suspected, playing wholly to Jordin’s strengths. Idol ballads are written precisely with a 17-year-old’s sense of melodramatics in mind, and I have a feeling that Jordin’s peer group will reward the 17-year-old wunderkind for it. So I’m sticking with my podcast prediction from last week and calling this one for Sparky–though the Science of Search guy is making me nervous with his well-argued Blake-ology.

Do you think Melinda could have stopped Jordin? Am I totally missing a silent Blake majority out there? Your comments coming up… after the break!
