EW handicaps the ”American Idol” race

If you’re completely, ridiculously, scarily obsessed with ”American Idol” (as we are), you may be enduring sleepless nights trying to determine who’s going to win: Clay Aiken or Ruben Studdard? And with the vote tallies between the two getting closer each week, it seems like one unfortunate ensemble, one misguided dance step, and, oh, yeah, one totally off-key song can spell disaster.

So, once and for all, let’s determine who deserves to be the sole singer standing at the May 21 finale. May the runner-up live well and prosper on the cruise-ship circuit.
