What the *blank* is up with American Idol?

There is also something going on behind the scenes you don't see. All of the contestants you see on TV have been pre-screened from tens of thousands of applicants. They have already been judged, and put into three piles: 1) good, 2) mediocre, 3) horrible. Groups 1 and 3 make it to TV. Mediocre doesn't mean good ratings.
