Justin Bieber and the soon-to-be Top 2 on 'Idol'

If Casey James ends up in the Top 2 on “American Idol” Wednesday night, it will be a major upset.

I am hanging my hat on the finale show down being between Crystal “MamaSox” Bowersox and Lee DeWyze.

Watch a prediction of who is going home Tuesday night:

Casey is cute as all get out, but he practically slept walked his way through Tuesday night’s performance show.

I’m looking forward to Wednesday night’s results show, which should be pretty hot thanks to Justin Bieber fever. And as folks visiting this blog have pointed out, we probably should get to see the bulk of the home town visits.

Don’t forget to join CNN tonight as we live blog during the results show and then head over to iReport to upload videos of your questions for the contestant who gets booted off the show.

    Well we now know for certain who the producers want to win Idol! LEE
    They do it through the judges every season! After all if everyone knows who the best artist is then the final shows would not get the ratings! Pump up Lee! Just like they did last year's winner! What was his name? I know that he has a song on the radio now. But if I said Adam Lambert you would know who that was! He was only the runner-up last year!
    I like both Lee and Crystal. But Lee seems more like a

    Who was that Justin kid on Idol? The kid jumped on the drums like he was auditioning for the Partridge Family remake.

    I knew that Crystal and Lee would be the 2 fighting for the crown. I like Lee I think he is great and Crystal from the beginning thought she had this in the bag even Simon said so. I could hear both of them on the radio, but I could hear Lee's name being called out as the winner. GO LEE!!!!!!!!

    I have to wonder why Crystals performances over the last few weeks have been so lack lustre. Certainly seems to be getting the "Andrew" disease and dading. Lee, who's performances are solid, but who's not as good a singer, could come out of it on top.
    Casey can be a great head of a band, like Daughtry is.

    Michele, thanks. What she said were her predictions, which is a lot different than saying firmly 'Casey's out'.

  11. Got a million of em

    I thought of this last night... When they get down to the Top 2, they should bring back the previous season's runner up. So whoever wins tonight, will have to go against Adam Lambert. That way the old runner up gets another shot a being the American Idol. What do you think about that idea?

    Idol – Popular celebrities are commonly known as idols, especially when "worshipped" by teenagers.

    I would love it if Paula Abdul came back and Simon Cowell won't leave.
    I love Lee! He should win! He has the talent but not just that he has confidence. Now that he has gotton so far he has brought up his potential and smiles and just great performences.

    I have always wanted to be a judge on idol! It would be a dream come true for me! LOVE YOU PAULA AND SIMON YOU GUYS HAVE TO EITHER COME BACK OR DONT LEAVE WE ALL LOVE YOU.

    If Lee will win – he will be just one more Idol with no personality

    Where did she say that Michele? That's rather inappropriate if she did so publicly.
