    NY Times Book Review - ‘American Idol,’ the History (Carrie mention)

    ‘American Idol,’ the History
    by JON CARAMANICA
    Published: March 18, 2011

    It’s the night before the “American Idol” finale. You’re one of the two remaining contestants — the lesser one — and all but certain to receive a thrashing in front of nearly 30 million people. What do you do? According to Richard Rushfield, if you’re Bo Bice in Season 4, up against the bionic future country superstar Carrie Underwood, you do the sensible thing: get very, very drunk. (For what it’s worth, Bo, even steroids wouldn’t have helped.)

    The story of Bice’s bender is one of a few small gems of backstage drama in Rushfield’s “American Idol: The Untold Story.” No pop-culture phenomenon is more ripe for exposé than “American Idol,” the most popular television series of the last dec*ade and the reality show that remains, even in the face of increasing tabloid interest, relatively wholesome.

    That's a cool mention! Love how the author hinted at Carrie's "future superstar" status. It actually sounds like an interesting book. Might have to check it out.

    The book is supposed to 'expose' AI's dirty secrets. He's saying that Bo was drunk during the finale.

    I doubt he was drunk since he had all the interviews and I'm sure someone would have loved to report it if they realized he was drunk.

    From what I understand, Bo got drunk after the performance finale, so it was the night before he lost to Carrie. I would think it would have been more of a stress relief thing after competing all season lol.

    People can be "buzzed" without slurring words and stumbling all over the place, guys.

    I think I would need a drink or two if I had to try to keep up with Carrie's mad skills for 6 months, as well. LOL Bo was pretty awesome though.

    Gotta love how four people "thanked" you for your post, Tee. Looks like you're not alone in your thinking!
