Elton Slams 'Idol' Fans

28 April 2004 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Elton John has blasted fans of American Idol after his favorite wannabe, Jennifer Hudson, was voted off the show last week. The British rocker called the axing of Hudson "a disgrace" last week, because he was staggered by her talents when working with her on the show the week before. And now he's suggesting there might be a little racism at play - because the three girls in the bottom three last week were all black. Elton says, "There were three people that I was really impressed with and they all happened to be black young female singers and they all seemed to be landing in the bottom three. The fact that they're constantly in the bottom three...I find it incredibly racist." American Idol executive producer Nigel Lythgoe says, "That's an easy card to pull out of any hand, but to call it racism is a little out of order." »
