Last week “American Idol” reported almost 64 million votes were cast… the largest amount in the show’s history! Have you ever wondered how much the producers of “American Idol” get for each call and text?

Last week when ‘Lil Kim and her partner Derek Hough were sent home, it wasn’t because they weren’t the best, but because rodeo champ Ty  Murray’s huge fan base gave their TEN VOTES ALLOWED FOR EACH CALL to him. DAMN…TEN VOTES PER CALL? Then the calls are “supposedly” combined with the judges’ score to determine who stays or goes. Have you ever wondered how many calls really come in on any given night and how much they mean in the final tally?

In an age where “transparency” is the buzzword in every aspect of our society, “opaque” seems to be the byword of two of the most popular shows on television, “American Idol” and “Dancing with the Stars”. Nobody outside the of the show’s producers know what’s really going on….but as Paris Hilton once said, “We’re not talking about Rock Surgery here!”, so I’ll just sit back and enjoy the show…I mean shows!

    Good one Artie. You may just have a point there. It would sure be in their best interest to “milk” the audience for more text votes. Ka-ching! “Transparency” would be a good thing also but doubt it will happen.

  2. Lynda Beam Says:

    In the UK when people call they get charged $1 that will be donated to charity. I think that would be worthwhile here as well, and would stop the crazy vote padding

  3. Jack Carone Says:

    We can’t even be sure our President gets elected fairly, so I will just look at everything to do with Idol as entertainment, and be entertained by this notion as well!
