I’m going to go right ahead and call a win for Tony Lucca. He had the most buzzworthy performance last night, for better or worse. The rest of the field were ordinary by comparison. Juliet Simms is the best overall performer/singer, but she was saddled with a cold and some poor song choices. Pimp spot notwithstanding, it would be a pleasant surprise if she won. Jermaine Paul sang the best he ever has, but it was too little too late, I think. Chris Mann is no Josh Groban, but it’s possible I could be underestimating the power of a pretty face and a nice voice. In fact, I wouldn’t be very surprised if Chris Mann turned out to be runner-up.
Keeping the above caveats in mind, here are my results predictions:
1. Tony Lucca
2. Juliet Simms
3. Chris Mann
4. Jermaine Paul
