Source Of American Idol 'Voter Fraud' Revealed
on 5/11/2006 (23)
HOLLYWOOD - Baffled over the inexplicable voting out of rocker American Idol Vegas heavy odds favorite Chris Daughtry, Am Idol producers are at a loss to reconcile the shows best talent with what America seems to really like and want.
|Umm, hello. I want to vote for Katharine...and tell Simon he's a big dumb poopy head! |
"I'm shocked, dog, I just don't know. Chris was the best the show had to offer and he got the boot." Soberly reasoned Am Idol judge Randy Jackson. "C'mon America, this is a vocal talent show, this is about voting for the best talent, so keep the vote real! Yuahh!"
Theories abound as to why Daughtry was voted out, and the certainly likeable and affable, but less vocally endowed Taylor Hicks, Katharine McPhee and Elliot Yamin slipped through, some crying auto dialer voter fraud, a strong Southern Taylor Hicks following, a White House urging to keep Yamin alive to set a positive example of what American lifestyle can offer to offset what some percieve as meddling U.S. involvement in Israeli-Arabic affairs overseas, or just plain malfunction of the voting tally system.
Or perhaps, more benignly, American Idol is simply talent shy as a whole, the contestants are simply the best of what the nationwide auditions have to offer, and just like the NBA draft, not every season is going to produce a LeBron James or a Michael Jordan. While none of these theories have been proved, or seem based in fact, Am Idol fans and pundits worldwide were left shocked an puzzled by Tuesday's weeding out.
The most plausible, entirely overlooked theory, however, comes from typical Am Idol voter, 8 year old Tiffany Hathaway, who voted 23 times for Katharine McPhee just because "she is so pretty. My mommy says I'll be just as pretty as her when I grow up." Tiffany also admitted that she also likes Taylor Hicks, "because he's funny and jumps around like a crazy monkey", and Elliot Yamin because he has "funny flappy ears just like Dumbo the elephant."0"<
