I read this story about how American Idol Season 7 is full of plants. That people (Simon Fuller, Simon Cowell and Nigel Lythgoe) are conspiring with artists and artist management to fill the top 24 with people who are talented but have had less than expected success from their music careers.
It looks like last year’s Sanjaya Fever has convinced the American Idol producers to find ways to make sure epidemics like Sanjaya Fever never happen again. Thank goodness for that. I didn’t even follow American Idol last year and I was iritated by Sanjaya Malakar. I think it’s great that they’re making sure people who can sing and look good get on the show. It makes American Idol so much more entertaining to watch. I’m back to being a fan of the show after 2 years of disinterest.
I have a little correction to the storythough. Kelly Clarkson had been working with famous musician and music producer, David Foster, before she auditioned for the first season of American Idol. She was discovered auditioning for the tv show Popstars, which produced the group Eden’s Crush. David Foster was a judge on the show and when he saw Kelly perform thought it best for her to become a solo artist. The most famous offspring of Eden’s Crush is Nicole Scherzinger.
Maybe he should have kept the pop idol image instead of going rocker, yeah?
