Season 9’s Didi Benami, Katie Stevens, Michael Lynche, Tim Urban and Paige Miles took part in an American Idol Panel moderated by THR’s Shirley Halperin yesterday. Check out some highlights of the discussion HERE.
One of the questions posed by Shirley was about the blogs, whether the contestants read them during and after their run on Idol, and if so, how what they read affected them.
We get a little namecheck here. Thanks Paige! *waves* (So does VFTW).
Sure, I pick apart the Idol’s performances in my show blogs, but there isn’t an Idol I haven’t both criticized and praised, depending on the performance. I’m not really out to get anybody (despite what a some OTT stans may believe).
The Idol producers give the contestants good advice at the beginning of each season: Don’t read the blogs. Seriously. What I or anybody thinks doesn’t matter in the long run. We’re just a tiny subset of opinion, hardly perused by the vast audience of viewers who tune into Idol every week.
We’re uberfans amusing ourselves, basically. Nothing to see here, Idols. *smiles*.
