AI Most Controversial Moments
Season 1. Tamyra Gray was voted out. Show was over and Kelly was the only descent singer left.
Season 2. Clay V. Ruben. Clay probably lost because people saw hin as gay. When he looked like a nerd, he looked more like an outcast and was more relatable but when they followed him to the final 3 hometowns, he just came off gay and people had to choose between a gay guy or a big black guy. Also Ruben was almost eliminated when their was five contestants left.
The first controversy was when Amy was voted off and Camille, JS, and JPL wasn't even in the bottom three. Many people were outrage by the fact Amy was a good singe and didn't get her due by the public. The only reason why this one was huge was the fact that the 3 favorites was in the bottom three. With Fantasia being in the bottom three, only 1 contestant hasn't been in that spot (George).
i love how in all the articles about the supposed racism the last line is "black crooner ruben studdard won the top prize last year". In reality (i can not stand CLay, such a nerd) clay was definitely a better singer. Was it racist than?
