“American Idol” is fixed, supposedly

Danny Gokey @ American Idol

A loose lipped staffer at American Idol is claiming the whole show is fixed and that producers have already decided who the top four are going to be. According to the insider and, coincidentally, this week’s TV Guide, Danny Gokey, Lil’ Rounds, Alexis Grace and Adam Lambert will be the finalists.

The source goes on to say that producers would prefer either Gokey or Grace win because, despite being the better singers, the other two are too similar to past winners Chris Daughtry and Fantasia. Even their back stories are similar.

They insisted that with Gokey, AI can exploit his sob story about his wife dying during heart surgery a month before auditions.

Reps for the show had no comment on the allegations but another insider is doubtful and explains that manipulating the contest would be very hard to do. “There’d have to be so many people lying for them to pull something like this off — so I doubt it’s true.”

Don’t be surprised if the next time we hear from this loud mouth, it’s on a news report about how an unidentifiable limbless body was found in the middle of the Mojave.

I doubt that any of these allegations are true. The producers may pick their favourite contestants but in the end, its all down to the audience. David Cook won last season because he was consistant and not to mention Taylor Hicks. Why do you think he won? The audience liked him. People will get sick of the show if the judges are biased. I really believe that the most likeable and talented singer will win at the end.


Sounds like a conspiracy to eliminate black contestants. Hope it works.


Well, given that Alexis Grace was eliminated last night, this little scoop isn’t quite so scoopy now is it?


Im sure the tabloid papers would pay MILLIONS of dollars to anyone that can prove that American Idol is fixed. It would be bigger than the Milli Vanilli scandel. “Girl You Know Its True”
