Transcript of interview with Simon, Randy, Paula, Bo, and Carrie on Larry King Live; Pre-order CARRIE UNDERWOOD's first single (in stores June 14th); Pre-order BO BICE's first single (in stores June 21st, has "Vehicle" on it as well)


Finally, here are the results to my American Idol livejournal experiment! I began this at the end of March to measure public opinion of the 12 finalists on livejournal. Since many people here took part in it, I thought you may want to know the results of how your fellow lj users think. Two things first:

1) 599 livejournal users participated in this. That is a huge sample size (most Gallup/public opinion polls only use around 100-200 randomly selected people) so this should hopefully reflect most lj users' opinions of the contestants this year.

2) Livejournal is NOT representative of America as a whole.
