‘American Idol’ To Issue New 13th Number, Won’t Allude To 1-866-IDOLS-13
March 10, 2009 – ‘American Idol’ host Ryan Seacrest got the show’s producer Megan Michaels on the line during his KIIS FM morning show on Tuesday, talking about how having a 13th contestant on this season’s show presented problems because the show only owns 1-866-IDOLS-01 thru -12. Who owns 13? A phone sex operator. So tonight’s show will unveil a special G-rated number for the 13th performer instead. Said Michaels: “We will not allude to the fact of the 1-3, because we don’t even want to endorse that.” The interview audio at kiisfm.com has since been removed.
