The fireworks are flying as two singers from “American Idol” who got the boot say that girl power voting is the reason they didn’t get their shot at the stars.
Naima Adedapo and Thia Megia both state that the massive number of girls who vote on the show are the determining factor as to who gets the leg up to stardom. That’s why two contestants got booted last week.
The controversy may brig to light just how much the female teen power of the voting audience really has but also shows that the judges can overturn votes with saves and counter votes.
So far this season of American Idol has had more twists and turns than a mystery novel and it’s likely with only nine contestants left there will be more surprises yet to come.
The show hasn’t waned in ratings either even with veteran hosts Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul gone.
It’s even gotten off air press from incidents related to the show like the famous haunted mansion that some contestants were staying in that had so many weird events that they had to be relocated.
Add to that contestant Dubin making a “Pepsi Moment” wisecrack that referred to late singer Michael Jackson’s 1984 accident on stage.
Dubin’s comments riled the Jackson family too.
Looks like this year’s American Idol is going to be one for the history books.*Sponsored Links*
