Is the audience really deciding the outcome?
I thought this article was very enlightening: http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmp...merican_idol_5 about the vote tallies. Are there even enough phone lines to handle the volume of calls made possible by allowing limitless voting? Sad when even business publications such as this broadcast journal are reporting on the skewed voting results :phhht . Maybe this will be a wake up call for FOX, but I doubt it...
I just made a lenghty post in the Changing the Voting System about this. Its even worse than I imagined. I was speculating 80-100 million, not 200+ million. With this knowledge, why vote, this is obviously a contest of which contestants fans are most willing to power vote through busy signals for two hours. That's why Latoya lost and why Fantasia probably won't win unless her fans take this as a personal challange. If anybody gets to interview the producers they should be grilled on this topic.

I think LaToya fans (definitely) and Fantasia fans (maybe) are the most likely to call 10 times, get one vote in, and say forget it. Maybe after last weeks results Fantasia might be able to compete power vote wise with the others.

I like them silent
Yeah mulvajo, same exact situation for me last night. Two hours of non-stop dialing for Fantasia with nothing to show for it.
