Yesterday, the sector of the populace dumb enough to care about “American Idol” was rocked by the shocking allegation that the large-scale karaoke competition might be fixed. According to the New York Daily News, a show staffer says that “Idol” producers have already picked the final four contestants, regardless of how America votes.
The female “AI” worker told a “group of people that the last four are going to be Danny Gokey, Lil Rounds, Adam Lambert and Alexis Grace,” said our insider. Asked if this was opinion or actual fact, the staffer vehemently retorted, “Those ARE the people,” saying it wasn’t mere speculation…
While Fox’s reps had no comment on the allegations, another TV insider told us, “It’d be very hard to manipulate the entire final four. Sure, the judges get one vote to save someone, but that’s before the top five, so theoretically, it’s just delaying the inevitable. There’d have to be so many people lying for them to pull something like this off — so I doubt it’s true.”
What do I think? I’m glad you asked. I think this barbecue sauce has just a little too much vinegar. And I don’t care what anyone says, ribs are great for breakfast.
