Idology: Top 20 Controversy on Idol (Starring Zoanette and Lazaro)! Is It Too Early to Panic?
Is Season 12 of American Idol about to careen through the guardrail, plummet into a ravine and explode into a fiery ball of detritus? Or is there a case of premature outrage coming from the chorus of naysayers railing against the judges’ decision to stack the Top 20 with Zoanette Johnson, Lazaro Arbos and a number of other polarizing singers?
On this week’s installment of Idology, my cohost Melinda Doolittle and I ponder these questions, talk about the talented contestants who got robbed during the Top 40 rounds in Vegas, and explain why we’re still loving Nicki, Keith and Mariah — even when we disagree with them. Plus, one of us (whose name rhymes with Kalinda Goo Victuals) flys her freak flag in support of Zoanette, and the other one (um, me) attempts a Nicki Minaj-style side-eye.
