Irony: “American Idol” 2nd Place HunterGirl Out-Charts Winner Noah Thompson on iTunes


Isn’t this the way we thought it would go?

Last Sunday, HunterGirl (real name Hunter Wolkonowski) lost “American Idol” in the final moments to Noah Thompson. She should have won. He was fine, but bland. They are each country artists.

On Tuesday both singers released singles. And now who’s ahead on iTunes?

HunterGirls’s “Red Bird” is number 10. Thompson’s “One Day Tonight” is number 11.

It was pretty clear on Sunday that HunterGirl would be one in a long line of “Idol” so called losers who would do better than the winner.
