American Idol: David Hernandez here to stay, girls sing tonight

American Idol: David Hernandez here to stay, girls sing tonight The much publicized gay stripper past of American Idol contestant David Hernandez will not be an issue, the show's producer said. "The truth is, we're never judgmental about what people do to earn a living. They've got to put food in people's mouths. We've had strippers on the show before. Nikki McKibbon was one in Season One. If it were some sort of heavy porn, then maybe we'd have to take action. But certainly not on this. There are a lot of people I know who'd love to have the opportunity just to make a better living by taking their clothes off. David Hernandez, whatever you say, is a nice guy. And he can sing. He's got a great voice. He deserves to be there, as far as I'm concerned," American Idol executive producer Ken Warwick was quoted commenting on the scandal. According to Warwick, the producers had no idea that David Hernandez was working at a male strip club, but even if they did, it wouldn't have mattered.

 David Hernandez sang last night as part of the male performance episode of the American Idol and all three judges were not affected by the already brewing scandal. All three gave him the "thumbs up" for his interpretation of "It's All Coming Back to Me Now", with Simon Cowell going as far as telling Hernandez he could get to the finals if he keeps singing like that. And in doing so, David Hernandez could easily turn into one of the best bets on this season of American Idol. At the online bookmaker BodogLife Hernandez is still listed with the whopping odds of 28/1 to win the show, which means that bettors would be paid $28 for every $1 risked. David Archuleta remains the top favorite to win at the bookie with odds 8/11.

 Tonight is the girls turn to sing and the females of American Idol are hardly shy of controversy. So far there have been rumors of racy photos Amanda Overmyer, as well as a questionable Facebook picture of Ramiele Malubay, but still nothing serious. Ramiele Malubay holds odd to win American Idol at 13/1 and Amanda Overmyer is now one of the biggest underdogs, listed with odds to win the show at 80/1.
