When I first read this story, I thought: Gee, this must have something to do with the fact that the American Idol band is so awful. Perhaps they are suing American Idol for defamation, because the judges constantly insult the band with covert statements like “I didn’t like the arrangement” or Simon Cowell’s ever popular, “I liked the song until the band kicked in behind you.” Is it possible the band is suing the show itself for subjecting me to its torture? No such luck. The ‘American Idol band is suing the show for the money they allegedly should have received for online music downloads. Oh well, there’s always the next lawsuit.
