American Idol Game

You knew it would happen eventually. American Idol will have a game for the iPhone/iPod Touch. Unfortunately, it isn't what you think. You'd think it would be something like singstar or karaoke revolution, but it isn't. Instead, you must use strategy and decision making to do well. Instead of singing (which could be done with 2.0 touches and iPhones), you must tilt your way though the song. I know, what a dissapointment...

You tilt your way through a song? Maybe instead of strumming in Guitar Hero we should kinda lean to a side.

American Idol is such a fake rigged show. Whoever the judges don't like for whatever reason get kicked off even if they have the best voices its all about the wacky judges behind the scenes rigging. I.m guessing Simon is out to make another buck off the name with this app. in royalties.
