Re. “American Idol”: Not sure if anyone out there actually watches “American Idol” (I never have until this season, don’t know why I’ve gotten hooked into it a little this year) but the show (and all of middle America) might spontaneously combust tonight if this one girl, Crystal Bowersox, doesn’t perform. The kinda cute singer-songwriter (and mom) was rushed to the hospital yesterday morning for something related to her diabetes, and so they switched around the order of things and put the 10 guy finalists last night and the 10 girls tonight. Bowersox has been one of the early favorites, but if she doesn’t perform tonight, she’s kicked out of the competition. The late word is that she’ll will indeed sing, but you never know considering it’s a live show. Anyway, for the record, our money to win the whole thing is on the L.A. hottie and waitress Didi Benami. You heard it here first.

Here’s Crystal:
