Ryan Seacrest is straight.

Putting aside the sexual props given to everyone's favorite American Idol host by Shana Wall, however, there's only one thing people wanna hear about Seacrest:

Kelly, Aaron

Who does he think will be this year's American Idol champion?

The answer may surprise some followers of the show: Jordin Sparks.

"First of all, she's a girl," Ryan profoundly said of this 17-year old singer. "She represents fantastic qualities. She's a great singer and a pretty girl ... She's non-threatening, cute and attractive. Plus, she has this sincere likeability that is rare and genuine."

It's hard to argue with those points ... although Melinda Doolittle will sure try to over the next few weeks.

Asked what he makes of ever-controversial Sanjaya Malakar, Seacreast said: "Everywhere I go, people have been screaming at me to get rid of Sanjaya. And I say, 'Too bad, you're doing it.' ... But Sanjaya, he's an interesting character on the show. America hones in and gets rid of who needs to go and the best usually stay."

Finally, how about it, Ryan? Do you really hate Simon Cowell or what?

"We're friends," Seacrest said. "We're just extremely competitive on every level â€" to the point that he doesn't want a parking place any farther away than the one I have."

But Ryan insists it's all in good fun. You know, like basically everything Katie Rees ever does.

There weren't too many shocks on American Idol last night.

Ryan Seacrest and Simon Cowell exchanged their typical, inappropriate - albeit fairly quick-witted - accusatory banter over who was actually gay.

First Live Performance

Melinda Doolittle and Lakisha Jones sang very well.

And somehow, for some reason, the Halle Berry lookalike, Sanjaya Malakar, continued to draw applause from the crowd. We hope they were just being polite - and come to their senses tonight when it comes time to vote.

One pleasant surprise, however, was the emergence of Jordin Sparks as a contender. The 17-year old handled her Diana Ross song well, impressing the judges and perhaps proving that this won't be just the Melinda and Lakisha show all season long.

As for the guys, well, they weren't particularly noteworthy. With the exception of Chris Sligh - but that's just because we've got a piece of advice for this crooner: put your glasses back on. They help with your image.

And how else will you see Antonella Barba photos clearly?

Jordin Sparks Quotes

Sleep as much as you can because you don't get any sleep. It's a year later and I still haven't gotten a whole eight hours of sleep yet ... I'm still reeling from winning last year. But, I guess I would say just try and enjoy every moment you have.

Jordin Sparks [to David Cook]

It's not bad to wear a promise ring because not everybody - guy or girl - wants to be a slut.
