American Idol 12 – Idol Alums Deliver “Idol Mic” to Ryan Seacrest (VIDEO)

Is this clip featuring American Idol alums handing off the Idol Mic to Ryan Seacrest the clip was supposed to air this week on the show?

American Idol uploaded the video to the show’s official You Tube channel today. Perhaps it was always meant to be web only?  If so, that’s kind of a waste, don’t you think?

The general public was barely aware of the “Idol Mic’s” Olympic-style journey across the US these past two weeks. The attempt at a feel-good promotion included local personalities and Idol alums who passed the mic along to its final destination in Los Angeles.

Watch as alums, Brooke White (S7), Pia Toscano (S10), Didi Benami (S9), Diana Degarmo (S3), Ace Young (S5) and Michael Johns (S7) hand the mic off to Ryan Seacrest on the Idol stage. The Top 10 get in on the fun, too.

    Well, that turned out really lame and pretty much a fail.

    Why would somebody go to all that expense and effort for that video posted on the website? Did they run out of time again and were unable to play it live? Doesn’t make sense.

    Holy moly was that stupid. No wonder they didn’t air it. At least they’ve made one right decision this season.

    Several of the ex-Idols tweeted about making sure to watch them on the show, so I doubt that the segment was only meant to be shown on the web. I would guess the show was running long, so they simply cut the segment. It was a dumb idea anyway, IMO.

    Well, the viewers were spared that bit of nothing. lol

    That mic marathon sounds like a bad promo idea that fizzled out. I’d be very interested in knowing which Idol brainiac thought of it.

    I love that this show continues to not take itself too seriously. This is the kind of cheese that built Idol.

    You had Bo, Danny, Colton and Taylor on local Fox affiliates doing interviews and promoting the relay. So, something went arye at some point.

    Ummm…WTF?

    (I’m usually a bit more articulate but I really can’t think of a better way to put what I’m thinking about this…)
