And they purposely let absolutely horrible singers through to see the judges, because mocking bad singers is a huge attraction to the show...
Also... notice the unusual balance of the runner ups and winners of the show... I mean first season... an attractive white young female wins - runner up is a young white male, then a large black male - runner up an geeky looking white male, then an average sized black female - runner up is a larger younger white female, then another attractive white female - runner up attractive white male, then an older white male - runner up a young white female.
In order to maintain this balance, I think the winner this year will be a young black male or female... and the only one who really matches this is Jordin Sparks. Go Jordin! Even if you were already selected to win, early on.
Despite being rigged though, it is pretty darn entertaining, if you don't have anything better to do.
A make-money-fast idea that is dragging on while it can.
