American Idol 2010: Let’s Hear It For The Boys! Week 1

Following the much anticipated Ladies Night on American Idol 2010, the boys will hit the stage tonight to win your votes! Simon Cowell keeps reminding us that this year is all about the ladies and the online sportsbook has Katie Stevens listed at 13 to 2 odds making her to favorite among the girls to win American Idol 2010. The bookies don't agree with Simon's assesment and have made Andrew Garcia the 9 to 2 odds favorite to win American Idol Season 9

Simon said, “We've had a few years now of guys winning the show and I would say there is definitely a better chance of a girl winning the show this year, certainly than last year.”

The guys seem to be getting more attention than the girls this season despite Simon’s predictions. The “Idol” contestant who was kicked off the show at the last minute held a press conference on Tuesday (Feb.23).  Chris Golightly failed to disclose a past recording contract. Golightly wants to be put back on “American Idol” immediately.

After showing a document to prove he was released from the contract, Chris Golightly said: “Thank you very much for your support and interest. It's really sad that I got disqualified … "American Idol" was an awesome experience. I'm here for a misunderstanding … There's a lot of controversy going on saying I signed a contract in May. Yes, that's true I did sign it in May 2009 and I was released in June 2009 … Being on "American Idol" means so much to me … I love to sing … and for it to get taken away, it just hurts me so bad. I would really love the opportunity to get reinstated back onto "American Idol" because this is a shot that I rightfully earned. America, if you can email or write or call FOX or Fremantle Media or 19 Entertainment … and try to get me back on. I appreciate all the emails I get from the fans … I'm not trying to have a sob story … I'm trying to have fun.”

I highly doubt he’ll be reinstated on the show. Especially since Simon is all about the ladies! “American Idol” airs tonight at 8:00 PM EST. The top 12 boys are said to give the girls some tough competition.  Andrew Garcia is a fan favorite, the bookies favorite and one to watch! has posted entertainment betting odds to win American Idol Season 9:
