Kristy Lee Cook - American Idol Scandal

Editor's Note: This post was written immediately following the season premiere of American Idol Season 7. It was meant as a critique on American Idol producers, and in no way was meant to disparage Kristy Lee Cook.

Kristy Lee Cook pulled our heart strings on American Idol with her story of plucky log-cabin dwelling small town horse trainer who sells her horse to travel to the audition. Aww...

And the judges seemed so sincere when they "discovered" this amazing new talent. I mean, what's not to love?



 Everyone knows the game is rigged, right? We don't care if some of the people are actors, or if the plucky small town girl was signed to Britney Spears' management team, do we? Here's a news post from 2001: Kristy Lee Signs In Triplicate with Arista, Britney, and BMI  Brand-new Arista Nashville artist Kristy Lee continued to establish her roots in Music City by signing a songwriter affiliation deal with BMI at their Nashville offices. In addition to her label contract, Lee recently inked a deal with Britney Spears' newly-formed production company as its debut artist. Superstar Spears, a BMI affiliate, has already agreed to make a cameo appearance in Lee's first video. The 17-year-old singer claims Selma, Oregon as her home, although recent months have been spent attending to business matters in Nashville and performing live in various venues in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area. Lee adds horses and softball to her passions beyond music. She is managed by Marty Rendleman, who formerly managed LeAnn Rimes. - BMI.com

Kristy Lee Cook

It gets better. Watch her in bed, in a wet t-shirt, in lingerie, and singing in front of the Confederate flag in her debut music video:



I'll ask again, does anyone care that the game is rigged? The whole thing makes the ending rant from contestant Christina Tolisano that much more ironic...

Vote for Jason Castro - he's the real thing!! A humble local performer.

I am from Grants Pass and I hear better singers than her in karaoke. She is a embarrasment to oregon. We live 25 mintutes away from her town."Unfortunately". She's a smartass. Thats my story and I am sticking to it.

She's only 17 years old and I think it's very wrong for her to be in a video that shows her in bed wih a much older guy (who by the way has some man boobs) and also being way too sexy for a teenager.This video looks like a hundred others.It's a very boring song.

Well, it's pretty obvious that you guy's have neither eyes nor ears. The song devoted is a very tender and beautiful song. If she decides to do the country music thing she will do well. And how doe's she get booted before Jason Castro. As far as the man in the video with Kristy, no comment. I would only suggest this was probably a very low budget video and she no doubt will have many better one's in the future.

Why is that we have to judge in all that we do?She's new,yet pretty,and probably the envy of all her friends.Say her video was about her being 20yrs old and a newlywed.Do all you negetive people feel better now?I feel the video was brave and a good start. I feel she will do good with hard work,and a positive attitude.God Bless...Mike in Tx......Peace

It's really great to see her in this video, and I hope we see lots more of her. How many other 17 year olds have had sexy videos - a bunch. The girl has looks and talent, if it's not your thing, go elsewhere, I wish her the best

I agree. She's fantastic. All these negative comments are just petty.

whats with the confederate flag in the back?

Tell me this show is not rigged. They put the black girl with the two beautiful white girls and then say, "Syesha, you are safe!"

Watch the show they do it all the time.

They lose Syesha and they lose a lot of viewers.

That chick should not even be in the top 12.

u guys are retarded shes not 17 shes 24 and just cuz her video sux doesnt mean she isnt amazingly hot

Anonymous said...

I just want to start off by saying that the show is not rigged. If you have been watching the show it is the viewers that vote for who stays and go's. The ones on here that have nothing but bad things to say about her and the video should take a look at themselves. At least she made it as far as she did and is taking a chance. There are alot of people out there that dont have the guts.. Just like some of the ones on here. She will be a big star with in the next year and where will some of you be. On here wrighting negitive and mean things about people.

Anonymous said...

I sit here and read all of your negitive coments. "she is only 17"
I was having sex at age 17 and i am sure more than half the world does. So dont make her wrong for doing the same thing we did...

FOOLS..... But he did have some man boobs.

Kristy is a GOOD LOOKING girl with a great country voice and I am sure she has a big future ahead of her. The video although low budget was still ok, the song,is not the best all around country soung but it was worth listening to, Kristy has a great voice and it will show in future songs.

To all the "MUSIC & VIDEO CRITICS" where is your Music Video? Better yet where is your list of accomplishments from when you were "17"? I thought so. You DON'T have ANY!!! Quit worrying about the guy in her video and go make one of your own!!! Grow-UP and be happy for someone who is willing to take a chance instead of hiding behind a computer!!

Anonymous said...

first of all i do not think that she is seventeen,i believe that in her last idol profile it said she was 24. why are you people so negative? I admire anyone who has the guts to follow their dream,maybe if we all did the same we would be much happier!

Anonymous said...

She was 17 in that video regardless of how old she is now. But who cares about that really?

Those of you defending AI and saying that it's the viewers who choose who goes and who stays...how do you know that? Why couldn't that be part of the scam? Kristy Lee Cook was in the bottom three for like 5 weeks in a row and had more lives than a freaking cat - who is to say that she wasn't helped along by the producers, because if you've been paying attention she was obviously not an amateur singer and the producers had to have known that.

That looked like a really bad 80's video. Pretty bad for this day in age.

I LOVED IT! ANY1 WHO DOESNT LIKE IT IS........ A FREAKN RETARD!

Yikes .. He kinda looks like Roger Clemens. Ironic. Oh Kristy .. you can do better than that!!

seems hard to respect someone whoe tries so hard to be country and she seems so big headed. the olny reason she made it through ai is because she had a previous record deal. and play the pitty card. the last thing we need is another kelly pickler. managers and producers are paid well to pre cieve the person as something there not. she has the looks though i guess if you like that . there is nothing special about her especially her voice. you are only who you are by the fans that you have and she cannot even call back when a true fan calls and is wanting to congradulate her success. i hope the best for her but it is hard to respect someone who allready acts like a star when she hasn't even startexas.ted her singing carrier. people in texas thing she is a poser and she was a real country girl she wouldn't ever have sold her horse for a ticket to american idol. don;t _uck with texas. totally have heard better in kareoke bars.

In the video she was 21 or older, it was done by her manager. Not a big record company. She is not a snob, she is a person with feelings and a goot heart. People who seethe with hatred are probably those with less talent and looks and need an object for their hatred to abuse! Get a life and leave her alone! You do not know her. Even though you would like to think you do. She does not control the making of videos? Hello? The video was done with class. She isn't reveling her private parts, nor is she crawling all over the other actor. Come On, are you KIDS all that imature you can't think for yourself?

Anonymous said...

I believe she is at least 20, it is a video. She is playing a roll of a married woman. Acting! As far as her talent goes, there are alot of you out there that have talent as well. Do not be jealous of her that God thought it was her time to excel, bless her not curse her for her good fortune instead of cursing her because you want to be her and have her good fortune. she has earned this opportunity with hard work from an early age. Kareoke is full of many talented people who may of made it if fate or God had made a way for them. He did for Kristy. You should be happy that someone has achieved their goals and dreams. Instead of hating and being jealous.

Give the girl a chance. It' something we all want and some of us deserve it. I like her sound and will be buying her music soon. Be happy for the ones that get the chance to better themselves. We don't all like the same music. Thats why we get the chance to pick and choose. I'm glad for her.I will be waiting to see what comes. I hope that the negativity that she gets will roll off her back, cause that's what comes with being famous. Go Girl. Live your dreams.

Im a new fan. Her videos are great. Thanks for advertising her for me. I would've never known.

Im not that big of a country listener, but she can really sing. GJ

Personally i like Kristy Lee, and i also live in her home town, and from the begining this has been driving me crazy!! She NEVER sold no horse to get to american idol! It was to make herself stand out and have people feel sorry for her, and it worked! Her talent should of been enough. Pretty Cheezy Weezy Kristy.

Scott said...

you guys are ALL crazy!!!! Kristy is amazing and we are all jealous of her! A small town girl trying to use the gift God gave her to make it in this world.. using every avenue possible to do so! I too am somebody like her trying to make it in the music industry and let me tell you.. ITS NOT EASY! She is and has been doing the best she can do and now she is signed with the same record label as Jason Aldean so don't tell me that she did ANYTHING wrong... she made it.. and is on her way.. Which I myself am happy for her and jealous of at the same time.. if you aren't supportive of someone like her, then you need to live a little.. it's just a video.. anyways, Kristy, I love you and always have and always will.. keep doing what you love!!!

This is her MOM, She was 17 at the time of the video, it was low budget for her very first real single "Devoted". She showed up for the video, and the shot it. It cost approx 5,000, and management paid for it. She lived with her manager in Texas at the time, and she did not notice the flag, nor would she of really thought anything of it. She is not prejudice. She if FACT did sell her horse "Montana" about 1-2 weeks before the Philly audition. She got her airline ticket and flew to audition. He is an awesome barrel horse up in Seattle area. She tries very hard to do things for her fans, and spent 5 hours after American Idol in her home town signing autographs. She cannot meet the needs of 100's of thousands of fans, because she is only one person. You try it...I do not see how she does what she does for her fans. Judgemental. How would you do if you were being judged so harshly? Probably not as well.
