Does anyone else feel there is alot of producer manipulation going on this year?
The scene with asking Bo to choose a group to join seemed staged to bolster his popularity. He has been given other opportunities as well.
Beyond the success of the season Idol also has a contract with these performers and an investment in who wins. I think they would prefer Carrie, Bo, or Constantine to be the Idol for post season marketing and I would not be surprised if they were not given slight advantages along the way.
