This time, my "American Idol" prediction was way off.
I really did think James Durbin would win; unstead, he finished fourth. That's the Chris Daughtry spot, the spot for Michael Lynche, Allison Iraheta, LaToya London and Tamyra Gray; some strong talents have ended up there.
But why Durbin? Why would a guy who had it all -- extreme talent, fairly good looks and hard-luck story -- fall short?
