‘American Idol’ Briefs

CHICAGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Regardless of who wins American Idol, the runner-up won’t exactly be earning chicken feed either. Unless they want to. KFC is offering $10,000 to the Idol runner-up who will be given a chance to write and star in an upcoming advertisement for the company’s newest product, the Famous Bowls.

PROTO, Utah – If tonight’s American Idol vote is as close as last week’s, blame a viewer in Provo, Utah, who sold their vote on eBay last night, promising to spend two hours “pushing redial” for the candidate of the bidder’s choice. As of press time, the highest bid was around $10.50.

NEW YORK – Not every person can be an American Idol but the show is becoming a popular party theme. According to, a party planning company, Idol-themed events are currently the rage. Especially in demand are judges who can deliver acid-barbed jabs a la Simon Cowell and Connecticut is reportedly suffering a shortage of Ryan Seacrest look-alikes.
