Who is Leaving?

Nigel has a tummy ache…

According to several message board reports, Nigel Lythgoe was on Ryan Seacrest’s morning show, drumming up the usual drama for tonight’s results show.

According to Nigel, and I’m paraphrasing because I’m culling this from several sources, the person leaving tonight is very well-liked (I’m assuming by the cast and crew) and it makes him (Nigel) sick to his stomach to think they’re leaving.

Also, Nigel mentioned they were in talks with Prince to guest on the show, but that he only wants to perform on Wednesday, not work with the kids during the week, due to time constraints.  Nigel stressed that he doesn’t want artists using the show just to promote their records.  So, no definite word on Prince yet.

Here are Dialidol.com’s predictions if your interested.  I’ve been seeing various anonymous “phone totals”, by folks who claim to have access to such things,  around the message boards.  The real consistent trend seems to be the Top 4–Taylor, Chris, Kellie and Katharine in all of the predictions I’ve seen.
