Compared to season eight contestants such as Lil Rounds and Danny Gokey, aspiring singer Joanna Pacitti has scarcely been seen so far on American Idol.

But early spoilers indicate this crooner reaches the round of 36, which may create quite a stir across the Internet.

As previously reported, Pacitti has already enjoyed a career in the spotlight: she starred in a production of Annie, appeared on an MTV series and released an album under A&M Records.

To critics, this ought to disqualify Pacitti from the competition. With that in mind, we can’t wait to see how they react to the following news!


According to Star Magazine, the singer gave a shout-out on her aforementioned 2006 album to Michelle Young and Roger Widynowski. Currently?

These two are executives for 19 Entertainment, the company that created American Idol and manages the careers of countless contestants.

Shadiness alert!

Heck, Pacitti, Young and Widynowski even lived in the same LA apartment complex for several years!

What do you make of this news, American Idol followers? Does Pacitti have an unfair advantage?
