'American Idol' producer debunks Prince appearance report


UPI News Service, 04/25/2006


"American Idol" Executive Producer Ken Warwick has debunked a printed report that Prince was going to perform on the Fox TV talent competition.
\
"I don't honestly know" where the rumor came from, Warwick told Zap2it.com. "It was kind of something that I heard on the daily buzz through the office but was never actually put under my nose."

The story was first reported by the New Post's Page Six gossip column.


Warwick said the show never initiated talks with Prince and doesn't really need to go looking for stars.

"There's a queue from the record companies, as you can probably imagine because we have 30 million people-plus each week tune in, and so we don't need to go hunting, as it were," he said.

"American Idol's" ratings are up 14 percent over last year, which Warwick attributes to the contestants.

"We've got a soul singer, a rock singer, a country singer, a Barbra Streisand (type), we've got a crooner," he said. "It's that diversity, I think, that keeps people interested. This year more than ever, the public have really hooked into these kids."

No, the show he's going to be on is The Apprentice, where Donald gives him a project, but he's fired for lack of promotion.

It should have been obvious from the beginning that Prince was not going to even consider it.

Now that I want to see!!

I love American Idol and watch it every week!! I have no problem with major artists appearing there-- Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Rod Stewart-- have been remarkable in helping these young talents!! I say, it was missed opportunity on Prince's part. However, if he's going to do it, it's not to promote 3121 but because of a "sincere" desire to help them. There are other ways Prince can promote 3121 and he has not done ANYTHING in the last month!! So please stop ragging on American Idol. It can do without Prince!!

Peep the last paragraph.....

*According to “American Idol” executive producer Ken Warwick, no one from the show has ever approached Prince to appear as a musical guest and song coach for the contestants, as was widely reported.


"I don't honestly know" how the rumor started, Warwick says, according to Zap2it.com. "It was kind of something that I heard on the daily buzz through the office but was never actually put under my nose."

The rumor spread like wildfire after it was first reported by the New York Post's Page Six gossip column, which stated that the artist was being pressured into appearing on the show in order to keep his new album, “3121,” near the top of the album charts.


Backtracking a bit, Warrick said if any talks with Prince did occur, he had absolutely nothing to do with it.


"One, we don't need to these days," Warwick says of approaching artists for the show. "There's a queue from the record companies, as you can probably imagine because we have 30 million people-plus each week tune in, and so we don't need to go hunting, as it were."


In other Prince news, the reclusive star was spotted in Las Vegas last weekend at nightclub Pure. He was reportedly given the key to the club’s exclusive Red Room, where he spent the night sipping on Long Island iced teas with a lady friend.

I'm sorry but you can totally tell by the tone of the dudes statement that he's bitter because Prince said "NO!". Thank god. That would be the icing on the cake as far as cheese goes. I think he would get exposed, but it's American Idol...and that's lame!

If Prince goes on American Idol it will be seen by millions of people. He can use it as an opportunity to show off his beautiful singing voice. He can also do whatever crazy thing to surprise everybody.

i would love to see him do it nod i've said that from the beginning of the show.... but, come on, we know that prince could never really pull that off. he is painfully shy and does not like talking to people like that.... he just could/would never make it in a situation like that sad


i'd love to see it, but i believe it will never happen shrug

Do you mean the cock of a huge flamingo, or a normal-sized flamingo with a huge cock?

Something to be said for integrity. American Idol is a farse and a gimmick.
A young talented friend of mine with the looks and a voice that could knock bricks off buildings,tried out two years ago. Cut in the 3rd round. I saw the folks who made it in the round she was cut. It's a joke of a show.

I thought the show was wank before she tried out too, but it was an immediate outlet for her to be seen. The majority of the folks on don't need to be seen. It's a reality show.

Well, I totally can't tell that. The show means nothing to me, but it IS a huge, huge hit that just about any musician would love to get a piece of. For all we know, Prince approached THEM and was turned down. But I'll accept the statement as true.
