American Idol: Voting May Be Changed in 2012 Season

Nigel Lythgoe an American Idol producer has stated that there could be a change in the voting next season.

It is not a sure thing yet, but voters next season, may be limited to one vote instead of voting repeatedly for the same candidate which is currently allowed.

This may prevent another travesty like Pia Toscano being voted off the show in the early weeks of the Season 10 competition.

There is no way in my book that Pia is a worse singer than Naimi Adedapo and Stefano Langone, but that is what happened earlier this season.

Pia should have been in the finals, if the voting had been done solely on talent. The problem is that some voters are voting for the best singers, while others are voting for favorites even though they know they are not the best singers.

The voting changes need to be made if it will prevent even one singer like Pia from going home so early in the competition.

The poll question is: Should American Idol voting be changed for the 2012 season?
