AT&T Text Voting: Adam Lambert American Idol title
AT&T, sponsor of American Idol, has attempted to quash the latest “Adam Lambert was robbed” theory by stating some over eager AT&T employees helped Arkansas fans by text at a viewing party, however they didn’t influence the final result.
Last week Idol favourite, Lambert, lost out to Kris Allen of Conway, Ark. Customers of AT&T were allowed to text in their vote. According to an article on mercurynews, roughly 20 mobile phones were brought to 2 parties in Arkansas and 2 of those mobile phones were capable of “power texting.”
However, a person with knowledge of the voting results confirmed that Kris Allen won by a considerable margin and a handful of voters would not have changed the outcome.
