American Idol Spoilers: Final Four Rigged?

by at . Comments

How's this for an American Idol spoiler: a staff member has allegedly been telling people that the show’s creators have already chosen this season’s top four.

There are still 11 contestants America gets to choose from.

Fox had no comment, and even with rumors of producers stacking the deck with strategic song-shuffling, it’s hard to believe anyone can guarantee who makes it.

Nevertheless, the New York Daily News claims that the American Idol brass is sweet on only a select few of the remaining hopefuls and doing everything it can.

Who's allegedly making the final four and who stands no chance, if this mole is to believed? Follow the link to reveal this potential American Idol spoiler ...

That's right - when the dust settles, the final four competitors on American Idol this season will be Danny Gokey, Alexis Grace, Adam Lambert and Lil Rounds.

Surprised? Outraged? Do you think this is even legit?

"Those ARE the people," says the Daily News mole.

"Adam Lambert and Lil Rounds are better singers and musicians than Danny Gokey and Alexis Grace, but they’re too much like past winners and ‘A’ successes... 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."

If it was just her prediction, she’d be spot-on with many fans who are calling for those exact four wanna-be crooners as the best picks for stardom.

But the source took it a step further, denying that it is just speculation and claiming that higher-ups are taking issue with two of the top contenders.

While Fox’s reps had no comment, another TV insider said, “It’d be hard to manipulate the final four. Sure, the judges get one vote to save someone, but that’s before the top five, so theoretically, it’s just delaying the inevitable.

While the “fixed” four are some of the front-runners, for sure, you never know what could happen over the next month - just ask Joanna Pacitti.


Would it be possible to control the number of votes a contestant received by setting the time required for the phone equipment to reset after each call? The voting time is fixed at 2 hours and the lines seem to be always busy.


I don't understand all the hype about Adam..sounds like he is passing a kidney stone when he sings. not that great. Danny can't help how the producers of ai make him look, and quit bagging on his clothes, he looks great. He has humility..Adam doesn't even know what the word means! Adam looks evil and posesed when he sings, it is painful to watch. And I don't understand why the judges gave Alexis such bad critics last week(dirty diana). She is great..Lil is very common and every year there is one of her.. big whoop. Alexis changed her hair cuz the judges said she looked plain. Good move girl, your adorable and I hope you win!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


danny does not deserve to be given special treatment ........he is so fake....telling a sad sob story n trying to win the heart of people..........i believe anoop is the best there it has got to be fair and not partial.....

lil rounds did a really bad thing last night and not in a good way...i agree with a couple of those though


Adam Lambert is too much like a past winner? Huh? Meanwhile, what a scandal that the Idol producers want to "stack the deck" with the same four contestants favored by Vegas.


Oh bleh. While I don't believe this for a second, that would have to be by far the worst top four in AI history. Seriously, what are the producers thinking?
