Although American Idol prides itself being able to pluck a singer out of obscurity and make them a star through weekly competition, it turns out this year’s winners may have already been secretly chosen by the show’s producers. Oh, my! How scandalous! New York Daily News reports:
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.”
I don’t know, I’m kinda not buying this. If they’re so worried about image, why did Kelly Clarkson win? Her image should be on breakfast sausages not album covers.
Note: The banner video is emo queer Adam Lambert’s complete butchering of the Johnny Cash classic, Ring of Fire last night. Instead of doing this, Lambert should have dug up Johnny Cash, propped him up on stage and shot him with paintballs. It would have basically been the same thing.
