Fixed? Producers want Cook to win, scandal in the works
when you though the American Idol drama couldn't get more
intense - a scandal in the brewing. According to MSNBC, the
producers of American Idol, 19 Entertainment, want David Cook to
be the winner, because he is more "manageable" than Archuleta.
Citing an unnamed source, close to the Idol works, the news
portal quotes the source "The producers are really hoping
that David Cook wins. David Archuleta cannot be managed the way
that 19 Entertainment wants to manage their winners." The
producers of American Idol are those who sign the winners and
deals with the recording agreements made within the Sony-BMG.
The fact that Archuleta has his own plan, including Archuleta's
father, who is compared to Joe Simpson (father of Jessica
Simpson) are among the reasons the American Idol sees David
Archuleta "unfit" for the winner of the season. This scandal is
not yet fully developed, but it does have plenty of strength
right before the finale, considering the source of the rumor.
The odds makers still have Cook as favorite, but the judges on
Tuesday night clearly showed they lean towards Archuleta.
