Although how that dude singing about feeding him pecan pie got through... I'll never know.
Either of them would have been the contestant that everyone would have tortured further down the process (like Sanjaya, John Stevens, Kevin Covais, et al). Those are the people that get voted along because people feel sorry for them, or think they're cute or charming, but eventually the judges turn on them, then eventually there are internet stories about how these people shouldn't have made it that far, and it's "rigged". No, IMO neither of those two should have made it. Also, the top 24 are chosen by the judges, so how is that rigged? There is no public voting involved.
I haven't heard about scandals...anyone have a link? Carly's not going to be on???
