American Idol: Paula Abdul hearing double Jason Castro

American Idol: Paula Abdul hearing double Jason Castro Last night was the performance part of the American Idol and judge Paula Abdul managed to leave viewers scratching their heads after a double-review. Normally, each contestant receives feedback on their performance as soon as they've finished their song, but last night the panel decided to go outside of the usual routine and give their take after all contestants performed, which proved to be a double-edged sword for Paula Abdul. When Abdul came to discuss American Idol contestant Jason Castro, she referred to having heard "two songs" from him, "Jason, in the first song I loved hearing your lower register which we never really hear. The second song, I felt like your usual charm was missing. The two songs sound like you're not fighting hard enough to get into the top four," Paula Abdul said to Castro and left everyone wondering what was she talking about. "Oh my god, I thought you sang twice!" Abdul said after fellow judge reminded her that only one song had been performed. The incident has prompted fans to speculate on the American Idol message boards if the show was scripted or fixed.

 The odds makers at the online sportsbook BodogSports, however, find it hard to believe that the American Idol is fixed, considering the odds offered on the contestants. After Tuesday's Neil Diamond-themed night, David Cook and David Archuleta are in a dead heat for the American Idol victory - Archuleta is a small favorite with odds 5/6 and Cook is listed with odds 5/4 to win the American Idol. Meanwhile the two Paula Abdul reviews helped Jason Castro none, who is sitting on 20/1 odds. American Idol contestants Brooke White and Syesha Mercado are the underdogs of the show sharing 30/1 odds to win.
