American Idol Introduces Online Voting, Chocolate Rain Guy Curses Under His Breath

Thursday, February 24 by

Oh hey, an “American Idol” press release. I haven’t seen “American Idol” since before I had a license to drive, but cool. I wonder wh– HOLY SHIT THEY’RE DOING ONLINE VOTING!!! From the historic press release:

“For the first time ever, AMERICAN IDOL will allow viewers to vote for their favorite contestants online at Sponsored by AT&T, online voting begins immediately after the first performance show airing Tuesday, March 1 (8:00-9:30 PM ET/PT) on FOX. “

Wait, so this doesn’t mean I can post write-in votes for Fred Durst or the Winnebago Man? This is pretty much exactly the same as before, but with online voting? This is why people have no faith in press releases.
