I thought it was usually in April around the top 8 or so, esp since my beloved Michael Johns was ousted last year during IGB. Has anyone heard anything?

I read somewhere that they weren't doing it this year. Something about, since the economy's so bad, they didn't feel right asking people for money.

I heard they weren't doing IGB this year. Then again, I also heard results would be half an hour and there'd be more mansion clips but that hasn't happened.

I read somewhere that "due to the recession" they weren't going to do it this year. I'm not sure if that's the real excuse for it or not though. laughing.gif

Yeah, I heard it's because of the dang economy. They weren't comfortable asking viewers to donate since many people are struggling.

Which I think is a shame, cuz I'm all for donating to charity.

We can always give to a charity on our own.

There isn't one this year---posted in this thread

http://idolforums.com/index.php?act=ST&...0#entry18291398

- "Idol" will not be giving back this year. The telethon episode that has been a part of the lineup for the past two seasons will be sidelined. Warwick blamed the faltering economy, which he said makes it “a bit crass to ask people to delve into pockets that are already stretched to heck and back just to keep their mortgage going” as well as the strain it puts on the crew having to produce not just two weekly shows but a mid-season extravaganza with Gives Back as well as the Superbowl-sized spectacle of the finale.

“It would be fair to say that it’s about half a dozen creative people that make ‘Idol.’ They do all the editing, all the shooting, they’ve got assistants and things, but it’s a very small creative team. When we stretch them to do an ‘Idol Gives Back’ as well as keep the mainline show on week after week, it kills us,” Warwick said.

"Usually" top 8? It has only happened twice. The first time it was top 6 and the second time it was top 8. There is no "usually". ermm.gif

Caleb winning is the last thing Idol needs? I think season 13 overall was the last thing Idol needed.

Someone told me, I'm not sure how accurate this is, that Simon said they didn't feel comfortable asking people for money the way the economy is right now. Don't quote me on that. I do know they're not doing it though this year.

That's what I heard too, same reasoning.
