American Idol is Just Another Staged Reality Show
On Wednesday night's episode of American Idol. Ryan Seacrest asked Taylor Hicks to choose the group he felt was not the bottom 3. Taylor walked over and shaked Chris's hand before joining the opposite group. Well, looks like that was all a falsity.
Don't think Taylor picking the "safe" group was of his own accord. During the commercial break, Executive Producer, Nigel Lythgoe, filled Taylor in on the fake-out handshake to Chris Daughtry and which group to choose. It turns out Nigel doesn't know who is going to be eliminated. He is kept in the dark until the very end. The only thing he knows is which three contestants are in the bottom three.
I'm hoping that next week Nigel "stages" a giant stage light hitting Kellie Pickler on the head.
