(As stated earlier on the thread, in the most recent American Idol a man was told flat out that he was too old. Was this related to an official age requirement? If so, how did he get in to audition? This was bias, pure and simple, unrelated to the rules of the game).

    Just as a matter of interst only and not to upset anyone I thought it would be interesting to see how old all the contestants were so I went to nbc.com and checked it out.
    The average age of the final 12 contestants was 21. The next oldest person (to Harlemm) was 25. This tells me that had Harlemm given his true age at the audition he would never have made it further.
