American Idol Producer to Puerto Rico: The Feeling Is Mutual

Laurent and Jean de Brunhoff's Babar and his teammates are going all out to win the famous Celesteville Regatta (1989).

Was American Idol producer Ken Warwick's wholesale repudiation of the entire Commonwealth of Puerto Rico in today's New York Times ("There are places that we went to — you know, to Puerto Rico — and the majority of them weren’t very good at all") motivated by a case of sour grapes? Idolator's Maura Johnston points out that last August, only 300 people showed up to Idol's San Juan auditions, which were picketed over the show's "anti-worker practices." [Idolator]
