Jimmy Iovine might have some musical experience but his overall grasp about what is happening on American Idol is limited. He is failing completely to see the bigger picture.
This is why his predictions over the last three weeks have been consistently wrong. Making
arrogant statements such as ‘If America gets it right ...’ which means if America agreed with him, did not help his case and just provided additional proof about why his analysis is so far out of touch.
If he had a real analytical model worth anything at all and took into account the total picture and not just his own limited view of the universe, then he would have realized that Lazaro was never in any danger whatsoever, yesterday.
In fact, I would go so far to state that my own theoretical model predicts that Lazaro will not be until he faces just about two other competitors in total, no matter who they are.
In addition, Burnell was beaten not by the girls last night but because he had to compete with Lazaro for the same voting sector of the
market. He had no hope of doing that just as the last three boys, who were dismissed, could not.
Iovine needs to open his mind if he ever expects to make predictions worth listening to.
