Of course this crap is fixed!

March 17, 2009

The NY Daily News finally published something believable today.

American Idol is fixed. And they’ve already determined the Final Four!

As if this is a shocker. Katherine Harris totally oversees all the Idol vote counting.

Which basically means most of the cool people are out and we’ll be forced to suffer through spastic dancing and Malnourished Casper Twats with poor-poor-pity-me stories for oh, the next two months.

Aside from Paula Abdul, the producers of “American Idol” have one more loudmouth to deal with on the set.

One of the hit show’s staffers is running around telling anyone who’ll listen that the team of producers and judges has already picked the final four contestants — despite the fact that 11 kids are still battling to be the latest pop star.

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.

If it was just her prediction, she’d be spot-on with this week’s TV Guide, which also chose those exact four wanna-be crooners as its picks for stardom.

But the lass took it a step further, claiming that higher-ups at the hit Fox show were taking an issue with two of the top contenders.

“Adam Lambert and Lil Rounds are better singers and musicians than Gokey and Grace, but they’re too much like past winners and ‘A’ successes,” the woman said. “Adam’s too close in style and sound to Chris Daughtry, while Lil Rounds is a dead ringer for Fantasia. Even their background stories are similar!

“The producers really want it to be Danny or Alexis. They think they’re very commercially viable, have a good image and a great story.”

Gokey’s sorrowful story of the death of his wife, Sophia, during heart surgery a month before his audition is “a huge reason viewers are tuning in,” said the staffer. “Fox likes the attention that he’s getting, and they’ve taken to giving Danny much more airtime as a result.”

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.”

Hmmm…I could see this being true, couldn’t you? And come on! Wasn’t Syesha Mercado in the Final Three last year enough evidence for even the most staunch believer in all that is American Idol?

    I am so totally and completely shocked beyond all belief by this news that I may need to reevaluate my very existence. I thought I knew me–the REAL me–and how I would react to this kind of news, but I was, woefully, wrong as wrong can be.

        Yes. And like some Idol contestants these days, my finger nails are also painted a deep, dark shade of “Pay Attention to Me” Black.

    I still don’t understand how they’ve come up with that Glambert/Daughtry comparison. And how is Alexis’s story unique? =/
