Let's call it a contest, shall we?

Next week, the top five American Idol contestants will perform the music of Neil Diamond. If this news does not compel you to clear your schedule next Tuesday night, then I'm not sure we should be friends anymore. Don't give me any of those mamby pamby excuses like "I don't have a TV," or "I'm allergic to rhinestones." You sit your skinny self down and you watch that show.

But before you do that, share your predictions* about which of Neil's masterworks the final five will sing. With so many hits to choose from, it's a tough call. But here's my lineup:

Wild card: Someone is going to sing Sweet Caroline , I just can't decide who. Could be David Cook or Jason. Maybe even David Archuleta (but I see that as less likely). Hoo boy this is fun! I can't wait!

Share your own predictions and you may just win yourself a valuable prize**. So go on, get predicting!

*You may find this discography helpful. And you can listen to most of his tracks here.
**I haven't thought it up yet, but it'll be good, I promise.

I love that you watch American Idol! I think Brooke could be like my new best friend. She's so likeable! (doubt she'll win, but I still like her!) I'll be watching Tuesday for sure!

Oh, my goodness, I fear I'll get the prize of not being your friend anymore! Just like when one of my friends found out I'd never read the Narnia series (I've since remedied that) and she said, "I'm going to pretend you didn't just say that so that we can still be friends." I wasn't as into Idol this season as in seasons past. But I like that young, smiley kid. But I'll watch it this week just for you! Just please give me the prize of still being your friend!

You were spot on with Archuleta doing America. He did a good job too. I have really enjoyed this season - what a great show you can actually have on with your kids in the room (except when Paula wears certain dresses :0! And I really liked Neil Diamond - he seems like a really good guy! Thanks for your fun post.
