It took till the penultimate episode, but this season of Australian Idol has finally been beset by a voting scandal… albeit not a very scandalous one:
The website of reality show Australian Idol misdirected fans to the wrong voting numbers last night, casting doubt over the validity of [the] final two verdict… but the spokeswoman insisted the error had not impacted [Monday’s] results show.
Yet on Sunday night, Idol‘s resident goons Andrew G and James Mathison insisted that the votes this year were tighter than ever. If that’s true, isn’t it reasonable to assume that every vote matters? Or could it be that – gasp! – Andrew and James were full of shit when they made their claim?
Personally, I’m shocked that people still vote for Idol. Didn’t everyone stop doing that in, like, 2005?
