American Idol Makes It Clear: Kris Allen is the Winner!

by at . Comments

Amidst growing controversy that AT&T helped to rig this season's American Idol results, the show wants to make it clear:

Kris Allen is the champion.

Earlier today Fox, Idol producers 19 Entertainment and FremantleMedia issued the following statement:

"Fox and the producers of American Idol are absolutely certain that the results of this competition are fair, accurate and verified. Kris Allen is, without a doubt, the American Idol. We have an independent third-party monitoring procedure in place to ensure the integrity of the voting process. In no way did any individuals unfairly influence the outcome of the competition."

Kris Allen won American Idol. Up next? A debut album.

AT&T also defended itself:

"Last week, countless parties were held in homes, bars, and other public places across America to watch the American Idol finale. In Arkansas, a few local AT&T employees were invited to attend two local watch parties organized by the community. Caught up in the enthusiasm of rooting for their hometown contestant, they brought a small number of demo phones with them and provided texting tutorials to those who were interested.

"Going forward, we will make sure our employees understand our sponsorship celebrates the competition, not individual contestants. That said, it's quite a leap to suggest that a few individuals could have impacted the final results."

All people have to do is go to Dial Idol and see that Kris Allen was ahead in phone call busy signals in a sampling of people who use Dial Idol, and if you are a true Idol fan you know what Dial Idol is. http://www.dialidol.com/asp/pr... You can see that Kris was still ahead of Adam in a phone call sampling, and that is not text messaging. So there you go. Kris was the winner of American Idol.

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
