Last night, "American Idol" finally aired its Charlotte episode, returning to the scene of the crime where that infamous TMZ-"leaked" feud took place. Finally viewers got to see what went down (albeit a heavily edited version of the events)...and it turned out to be much ado about nuthin'. This was what producer Nigel Lythoge had been hyping for months--at the expense of the contestants, and even at the expense of the series' credibility? Really?
Today, my "The Day After" co-host Matt Whitfield and I discuss last night's feud--who was in the wrong, who was in the right, and whether it was right for that TMZ footage to ever "leak" in the first place. (SPOILER: No, it wasn't.) We also remain cautiously optimistic about "Idol's" future going forward, hoping that this whole silly bickering bizness will finally be put to rest, and the show can just move on and refocus on the contestants, not the judges.
