I’m sorry if this post doesn’t make a lot of sense, I’m way too busy listening to the new Tori Amos track to pay attention to anything else, but apparently some chick staffer over on AI is running around telling every paper who’ll listen that the Top 4 for AmIdol have already been chosen by producers:
The female “AI” worker told a “group of people that the last four are going to be Danny Gokey, Lil Rounds, Adam Lambert and Alexis Grace,” said our insider. Asked if this was opinion or actual fact, the staffer vehemently retorted, “Those ARE the people,” saying it wasn’t mere speculation.
If it was just her prediction, she’d be spot-on with this week’s TV Guide, which also chose those exact four wanna-be crooners as its picks for stardom.
But the lass took it a step further, claiming that higher-ups at the hit Fox show were taking an issue with two of the top contenders.
“Adam Lambert and Lil Rounds are better singers and musicians than Gokey and Grace, but they’re too much like past winners and ‘A’ successes,” the woman said. “Adam’s too close in style and sound to Chris Daughtry, while Lil Rounds is a dead ringer for Fantasia. Even their background stories are similar!
“The producers really want it to be Danny or Alexis. They think they’re very commercially viable, have a good image and a great story.”
Now, listen, it wouldn’t be like some huge coup if those people were the final four. They’re already easily the front-runners, but I take serious issue with the statement that my gay-man-crush Adam Lambert is even a little bit like Chris Daughtry. OMG they are soooo different. I was never into Chris. But ooooh my sweet Adam. I love it when he’s on stage. My little heart just goes all a-flutter. Plus, I think we’re all counting Allison Iraheta out a little too soon. That girl’s got chops and stage presence, and I think she has a chance to beat out Alexis and Lil as our female front-runner in the end. No one paid any attention to Jordin Sparks at the beginning, either.
