'Idol' Fan Anderson Cooper Likes Simon, Mocks Paula, Thinks Adam Lambert Will Win (VIDEO)

Anderson Cooper talked about "American Idol" on "The Tonight Show" Monday night. The CNN anchorman is betting Adam Lambert will win, "He's the better singer, but what do i know?"

Cooper also said when he watches he cares most about what Simon Cowell's judgment is. "I really like him, I actually hung out with him... I sometimes tend to fast forward through the other judges. Just Paula, actually. I don't have the time. And I don't know what she's saying half the time." WATCH:
