American Idol is about to unveil a dedicated Facebook page letting fans vote for their favorite contestants.
The idea is that they will be allowed to cast their ballots up to 50 times during the designated voting period for each broadcast.
This comes across as a really appealing alternative to the clogged lines and busy signals that most of us have experienced when trying to vote for “our” idol. Not to say that anything which keeps these relentless SMS marketers at bay is nothing short of heaven-sent.
If all goes well, online voting will be implemented for the very next installment of American Idol (March 1).
