Four finalists from different seasons of “American Idol” have stepped forward on behalf of the show saying that the show isn’t racist at all. Melinda Doolittle, Vonzell Solomon, Taylor Hicks, and Casey Abrams have stepped forward to say that they never experienced any issue with racism while they were on the show. Each of the finalists were from different seasons and are shocked by the allegations made by nine former constants, one of them being Corey Clark.

Queen Bey has come under a lot of heat since the Presidential Inauguration in which there are claims that she lip-synched. Although she personally didn’t make a statement, it is said that she sang along with a background track to preserve her voice for the Superbowl. Many have an issue with this because even though the Superbowl is watched by more people than the Inauguration was, it was an important part of history. I see both sides to the argument of whether she should have sang or not, but technically she did sing she just avoided exerting herself with the assistance of a background track and it’s not like we don’t know how well Bey can sing so I don’t see what the big deal is. Instead of making a direct, formal statement about the rumors, Bey took to her Instagram to send a message right to her haters and the skeptics which is probably better than any statement she would make.
