It makes total sense… every woman Idol winner has done amazing in terms of record sales, and every male has sucked. Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, versus Reuben Studdard? Lee Dewyze? What’s his face from Season 7? There’s an obvious reason why they’d do this. And you know that they are, beyond a shadow of a doubt.

I thought I saw them during Hollywood week getting rid of some strong male singers. Lazaro was the weakest of his group, yet he made it to the voting rounds and his quartet-mates didn’t. If they don’t want a particular type of winner, whether it be wgwg, country singer, soul singer, whatever, they can make sure there are no good singers of that type making it to the voting rounds, and I believe they did do that this year.

If what I have read is correct it makes me want to stop watching American Idol. The VIEWERS (americans) should be making their decision on who is in the finale not the PRODUCERS. Cree and Angie are absolutely as good as Amber.

Just a thought – How controlled this process can be, if the general public knows American Idol has an agenda to have a specific contestant win, people usually rally and vote the other way to make a statement. The A.I. producers know this from experience, so who knows, they may be releasing this statment to ensure Amber and Candice don’t win. They know the other contestants are safer bets in selling more records and crossing over to the general public. So this way they are projecting that they are for these 2 girls, but they would actually prefer a different winner. Never underestimate how much money and time these large companies are now spending on hired teams who do nothing but study this type of information, behavior and influence. American Idol is a billion dollar company that must show positive financial results, and part of that is how many records their idol winners sell beyond just their first post show album.

It’s funny that you are only noticing this now. This has been called out since the final10 were initially selected. Not a single guy selected was ever going to be either univerersal enough or strong enough to beat any of the girls. Not a single one. Most people know this was determined before the season even started. They selected weaker guys to ensure the out come that a girl wins.The entire process is contolled by the producers form the start, and after 12 years they know how to influence voting to achieve a specific goal. Another example of this is the reason there were more black male contestants this season than ever before is because Idol is currently being sued by 8 black male contestants for racial discrimination. So for appearances, they added more young black men to the finals so they can say, look we don’t discriminate. It was done for publicity reasons. Sorry to burst your bubble, but although it is wonderful that A.I. gives an opportunity to undiscovered talent, if you notice in the credits, it states that not even the hired judges have the final vote in selecting the initial contestants, its the producers.

i do not believe the votes are every rigged or falsfied. i do believe, of course, that they can push an agenda… make someone appear likeable, or not, etc. did they push the sympathy vote for lazaro in order to get rid of the other men? i dunno… did they undersell burnell and the other last guy to leave- the latin guy? i dunno. at the end of the day, tho, with the exception of janelle, all 4 of the girls are just BEYOND the level of any guy that was in the top ten. so, whatever… if i had it my way, janelle would go next, then angie, then amber, and kree and candice would finish it out- with candice winning. angie shows a bit more emotion, so maybe i’d prefer her to beat amber… but amber really could be the “next whitney houston”, as nicki says… and she seems to have a better back story than angie. but, regardless, all 4 of those girls are amazing- with candice really being the most special, tho kree is a close second.

Ive been saying this all along about these “america votes” show because we never actually see who is taking/calculating/regulating these votes so the producers can literally say anything they want about the results and we have no choice but to go along with it and trust that they are honest which for me is hard to do. So do I think the producers have their own agenda and power to get the winner they want… absolutely!
