Millions of people are still watching American Idol, but millions seem to have stepped away from their phones, according to

On this week’s Idol, with the final three contestants, Ryan Seacrest said 47 million votes had been cast. But last season’s top three finalists got 88 million votes, the website said in its Marquee section.

Since its beginning, the show has been secretive about the numbers of votes cast for each contestant revealing only the total number of votes. Last year, CNN said, Seacrest did say that only one million votes separated Kris Allen (the eventual winner) from Adam Lambert when the two singers made it to the top three.

Are Adam Lambert fans, who were outraged by Allen’s win, staying away from the voting? Or is Idol just having a boring season?

Said one fan on a message board, “The contestants were below par, the performances were contrived…In the end, the votes tell the tale…I think the viewers were tired of the judges telling us we were eating filet mignon when it tasted quite a bit like liver.”

Take that, Simon! (CNN)

  1. I don’t think this season sucks. It has more guitar playing artists then we’ve seen in the past. I personally rather watch contestence who playing in bands and write their own songs then those who can belt out a few awesome notes. I’m going for Lee DeWyze this year!

  2. not totally sucks… i’m very happy with the final two. but there were MANY talented ppl that shoulda made it into the tpo 20 and top 10 that didn’t. and big mike shoulda NEVER been saved.
