'Idolatry' (part 2): Sorry, Ricky Braddy! 'Idol Gives Back'...to Michael Sarver!

Posted on

So Kristen Baldwin and I already tackled the Danny Gokey situation in part 1 of this week’s Idolatry (click here if you missed it), but unlike American Idol‘s producers, we thought it was important to spend at least a little time talking about this week’s sadly ousted contestants Ricky Braddy and Anoop (ANOOOOOOP!) Desai. Oh wait. I forgot. Ryan did make it a point on Tuesday night’s telecast to let us know that Ricky once made a living selling chicken fingers. News you can use, y’all! Anyhow, do press play below, and share your thoughts on this week in Idol in the comments section below.
