The latest season of American Idol hasn't even started yet (just a few more weeks, though! January 16!) - but a clue about the winner has already been revealed.
According to Randy Jackson, that's a feature of the eventual victor of the FOX series' sixth season. He dropped the spoiler as he previewed the upcoming show on his Westwood One radio show.
With just 35 days left until the season premiere, the ether is filling up with American Idol information and rumor. The OC Register's Watcher has rounded up some of the best bits for your enjoyment:
â€¢ The judges sent 117 women and 56 men to Hollywood.
â€¢ The final 40 will reassemble in Hollywood next month, while the rest of us are watching the audition episodes.
â€¢ Names that keep cropping up as reported members of the final 40: Brandon Rogers, Blake Lewis, Chris Sligh (curly-haired person alert!) and Sundance Head, son of singer Roy Head ("Treat Her Right").
â€¢ Singers we saw in earlier seasons who return for another shot include: Gina Glocksen and Matthew Buckstein, who was one of the "Brokenote" cowboys.
â€¢ The woman who sings "Stormy Weather" in the preview commercial is named Cydney Kirk - and reports are she didn't make the top 40.
