American Idol Top 9

A girl who went to a taping of American Idol is claiming that she was forced to sit in the back row, away from her friends, because she is overweight. The 19 year old told RadarOnline that one woman looked her "up and down" and said, "Oh no, you're just too big, too heavy to be in front!" The girl is reportedly 5 feet 2 inches and about 150 pounds. As far as I'm concerned, 180 should be that little nugget's goal weight. As of now, American Idol hasn't responded to calls from RadarOnline, although it's unclear if they were calling for comment or just trying to vote. If this story is true, then American Idol needs to rethink its game plan. It should take a page out of the Dancing With the Stars handbook and put the fat people on stage. That...is good TV.
