American Idol, Paula Abdul Dominate Search Engine Rankings

American Idol, Paula Abdul Dominate Search Engine Rankings The following numbers and results are based on information courtesy of LYCOS, Incc, a leading community destination for broadband entertainment content.

Not surprisingly, Internet users are once again hooked on American Idol - searches for the show are up 480% in interest this week.

A bit unexpected, however, is the fact that Paula Abdul is the most searched for judge - by far - across engines such as Google, Yahoo and MSN. Specifically, people wish to know about "Paula Abdul drunk," as 20% of queries regarding this occasionally slurred singer involve those words.

Meanwhile, searches for Simon Cowell have risen 90% this week; and those tracking down "American Idol auditions" have also done so at a more frequent pace than prior weeks.

As the weeks go by, it's safe to assume individual contestants who impress viewers will grow in popularity. Two that standout after last night would be Melinda Doolittle and Sundance Head.
