Idol Taped Tonight
If you were looking forward to a live episode of “American Idol” on FOX tonight, you’re out of luck. The show was taped last night. A rep for FOX says “We have pre-taped shows at this stage of the competition before, although it’s rare.” One of the reasons is to make sure all 13 contestants make it into the 2 hour show.
Idol executive producer, Nigel Lythgoe, defended their decision not to air a live episode by tweeting, “We are pre-taping for 2 weeks as we have a new Director & new judges. It has nothing to do with minipulation you morons.”
