Is Your Next American Idol a Phone-Sex Operator?

When the producers of American Idol decided to keep thirteen finalists this year, they forgot about one hilarious detail. On previous seasons, viewers have been able to dial the phone numbers between 1-866-436-5701 and 1-866-436-5712 to vote for their favorite contestants. But, as it turns out, Idol does not own 5713 — which is a phone-sex hotline. [mjsbigblog via Idolator]
