    2008 American Idol Contest Rules

    Woo Hoo!! One of my favorite contest!

    Okay. I'm gonna change it up a little bit this season. Here's how it works.

    The contest will begin when we have the final 12 contestants (6 men and 6 women). If they stay on schedule, that should be March 12.

    Your job is to predict who will be eliminated each and every week. The maximum possible points you can win each week is equal to the number of contestants who sang that week. For instance, the first week of the contest 12 contestants will sing. So you can possibly win 12 points. The following week 11 contestants will sing so there will be a maximum of 11 points you can win that week. 10 contestants/10 points. 9 contestants/9 points. And so on.

    Here's the change this season...

    Each week you can choose one or two contestants who you think will be eliminated. If you make 1 choice, and your choice is indeed elimated, you score the maximum possible points for that week. If you you make 2 choices, and one of those 2 are indeed eliminated, you score one-half of the possible maximum points. You double your chances to pick correctly, but you sacrifice half of the possible points in doing so. So, in week 12, if you make 1 choice and you're correct, you score 12 points. If you make 2 choices and 1 of them is correct you score 6 points.

    If you make either 1 or 2 choices and you're incorrect you recieve zero points. And that's sad.

    ALL PREDICTIONS MUST BE MADE BEFORE THE ELIMINATION SHOW GOES ON THE AIR IN THE EASTERN TIME ZONE. Not before the first contestant sings -- rather before the theme music even starts.


    BONUS POINTS: There are 15 bonus points up for grabs. Before the first elimination show starts you must pick who you think will win American Idol and who you think will come in second. If you get the winner right you gain 10 bonus points. If you get the runner-up right you gain 5 bonus points. If you get them both right you gain 15 bonus points.



    Questions can be asked in this thread.

    Thanks, Jessie.

    May I go on record as saying I loathe David Cook's hair? But I like his singing!
