Former “American Idol” champ Taylor Hicks says he had inside details about who was getting eradicated every week when he was on the present — and says he wasn’t the one one.
Taylor was on WJOX radio Friday in Birmingham, AL when he dropped the bombshell. As he put it, “I had an ‘in’ in the entire manufacturing of the present” who informed him the outcomes earlier than they had been revealed throughout Season 5.
Mr. Soul Patrol says the one night time he did not get the data was the finale in 2006 — the place he was up towards Katharine McPhee. He did say government producer Nigel Lythgoe gave him a “wink and a nod” earlier than the outcomes had been introduced.
To be clear, Taylor’s not suggesting the voting was rigged. Nonetheless, if what he is saying is true … you’d should query the shocked appears on contestants’ faces when Ryan Seacrest revealed the elimination.
Additionally … for what number of different seasons was Taylor’s supply tipping off contestants?
We have got calls in to Nigel and FremantleMedia, which produces ‘Idol.’
