I want to give a shout out to Brent Michaels from 97.7 the Breeze out of Bakersfield, CA. He sent me audio of an interview he did with JD Roberto Thursday morning. IF I had listened right away, I would have had the total scoop on Clive Davis picking songs for the performance finale. But nooo. I was too preoccupied with my MTV debut! Anyway, one other bit of interesting information. The Finale is at the Nokia this year instead of the Kodak because…the Kodak was already booked! So, bigger and better? No. Dropping the ball? Why yes!
Also, JD thinks that bringing back the wildcard show to give contestants like Michael Johns and Carly Smithson another shot would be a great way to tweak the show. Considering that JD tends to be the mouthpiece for TPTB, I wonder if he’s heard something that we haven’t? Hm.
