“(She told a) group of people that the last four are going to be Danny Gokey, Lil Rounds, Adam Lambert and Alexis Grace," the New York Daily News quoted an insider as saying. When asked if that was her opinion or actual fact, she vehemently retorted, “Those ARE the people," claiming it was from being a speculation. The woman also claimed that higher-ups at the hit Fox show were taking an issue with two of the top contenders.
“Adam Lambert and Lil Rounds are better singers and musicians than Gokey and Grace, but they"re too much like past winners and 'A" successes," said the woman. She added: “Adam"s too close in style and sound to Chris Daughtry, while Lil Rounds is a dead ringer for Fantasia. Even their background stories are similar! The producers really want it to be Danny or Alexis. They think they"re very commercially viable, have a good image and a great story." However, Fox"s representatives refused to comment on the allegations.
