Hmm… This excuse sounds rather flimsy to me.
For the people who make American Idol, the truth can get ugly.
Though producers and judges deny that the show has been any more ill-spirited than in years past or is focusing longer on individual meltdowns, executive producer Ken Warwick acknowledges there has been a higher ratio of horrible performances presented so far.
“It’s not a conscious decision,” Warwick says. “It’s just that the further we go in the series, there are less and less good singers, so the numbers are made up by more bad ones.” He notes that some Idol competitions in smaller countries have been shelved temporarily to replenish the crop of singers.
Sorry. I’m just not buying this one. In my church alone, I could come up with 25 people with extraordinary singing voices. More if I held auditions. There has to be more than that in a stadium of 10,000 wannabes. Don’t you think so?
Come on, American Idol. Try again.
