But as far as number of hits for the videos I posted? My partner in crime, @Idolxfactor1 reports the sweet Charlie Askew was way ahead with 160K views as of this morning.

Megan Miller, the gal with the broken leg, is second with 28K and the adorable Maddie Assel was 3rd with 23k. The rest were all bunched together in the upper teens.

The American Idol judges poll held no surprises whatsoever. The event tempered and astute (NOT TO MENTION HOT), Keith Urban is far ahead with 43% of the vote.  Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey are running neck and neck with 27.18 and 27.51 of the votes, respectively. IT’S THE BARBZ VS THE LAMBS!  And poor Randy Jackson. Nobody likes him. He only garnered a paltry 2%.  I bet half of those are pity votes!
