If Simon's prediction holds true, Clay Aiken will be crowned the next American Idol this evening on Fox (8-10 pm/ET). Aiken's rousing rendition of "Bridge Over Troubled Water" last night brought the crowd to its feet, and had Judge Cowell gushing, "I think that performance could win you the competition." Ruben Studdard, meanwhile, had what can only be described as an off night. Imagine that. (Same goes for Paula Abdul, whose feedback was more nonsensical than ususal. "You really found the matrix of that song," she told Clay.) Who do you think will win? Vote now!
