Let's not overlook the two most important & successful winners have been female, they really need to find another. I just don't agree with that at all.

    I agree with your premise....but not the specific "the commercially viable Crystal"...She lost her record deal also so she will not be the Jennifer, Adam and Chris of her season

    Yeah, Crystal kind of disappeared. But the point still remains, based on the winners we have seen the past few seasons especially, I don't see how anyone could believe that the outcome is rigged.

    IF Crystal had won & had the winners $$$ & promotion behind her, it may have been a different outcome.

    But Chris, Kellie Pickler, Jennifer, Adam didn't win so they had no $$$$ and promotion behind them.....they had talent and appealed to the American public. Crystal apparenlty didn't....for a number of reasons.

    Not to make a pun, but it is time to DIAL IT BACK on voting methodology and talk about the result show as it aired.

    Yes, but every one one of them except Jessica were safe at that point. Does "these are your bottom three" Mean bottom 3 by vote or bottom 3 by that's who we decided to put there. I believe it was the true bottom 3 because Elise has been there before and Joshua doesn't seem to be that popular, or at least not many people seemed to like his performance, but I think in the past they've manipulated it for shock value.

    Read the book "American Idol Vote Scam" by Kerry Kolsch. As for the bottom 3, I think the vote totals are probably close for all contestants & any of them can end up at the bottom if there is a bad performance, though it's intertesting that some contestants were eliminated after a good performance. There is not really a stand out this year.

    Kerry Kolsch is infamous across the internet world of AI as an over the top fan of Adam Lambert that cannot & will not accept that he lost to Kris without there being a world wide conspiracy behind it.

    Here's an article I ran across that was pretty on point, IMO.

    Thanks for posting the link! Nice article.

    Personally I find these humane mouse traps rather ineffective. Better to lay down some glue and when you hear the critter scream you take a shovel to his head.
