Bo Bice Lost American Idol To Carrie Underwood By Only 134 Votes

November 27, 2005 01:23 AM by Joe Blackmon

Bice_134_votesOn a recent episode of Heartland airing on the Fox News Channel, John Kasich selected a former American Idol contestant as the Heartland Hero of the Week.  Bo Bice won this prestigious recognition for giving up his house to a family displaced by Hurricane Katrina and for also using his music to raise money for victims of Hurricane Katrina. 

Bo Bice talks to John Kasich via satellite from Nashville, Tennessee.  Bo tells John, “The lord just told me that if you’ve got something, you know, you give.  That’s something that my family’s always gone by.  And it was just kind of second nature to do it.”  Xera and Perry Booth, who were the lucky recipients of Bo’s generosity, also talk to John via satellite.  In regards to the Bo allowing them to use his house, Xera tells John, “Its meant a tremendous amount.  Made me feel like I had a place to hold my family all together.”   

In an interesting twist, John Kasich suddenly starts quizzing Bo Bice over a statement he once made about how he was praying not to win on the American Idol finale.  While Bo is answering the question, Fox News flashes across the screen that “Bice lost to Carrie Underwood by only 134 votes.”    

During the American Idol 4 season, Fox refused to release any specific voting totals.  When Carrie Underwood was announced as the winner on the American Idol finale, no mention was made of her margin of victory.  Fox News startling release of this information could stir up American Idol fans not only about the finale voting but also about controversial eliminations during the earlier stages of the show.  While the new information about the close voting totals could lead to new fan debate, it probably matters little to Bo Bice or Carrie Underwood.  Bo Bice is busy preparing for the upcoming release of his new album The Real Thing, and as Bo himself pointed out to John, Carrie’s new album did over 300,000 units in its first week of release.  Both singers appear to be well on their way to successful careers.   

John wraps up the interview with Bo Bice by telling him, “When people become rich and famous often times they forget their roots and they forget about giving back.  They get arrogant, and you know what, I think you’re a great example to people.  You were nothing, now you’re a big time star.  You’ve helped out the Booths and that’s why you’re our hero, and on Thanksgiving we wanted to put you at the top of the show.”

    When I see proof from American Idol that these numbers are correct I will believe it. Until then it means nothing. Maybe they didn’t have room to add the five zeros at the end of that 134.

    Actually, I am almost 100% sure that what the 134 votes was for was a poll before the finale on Fox News about who was going to win AI4. I was watching Fox News the morning after the finale, and they showed that same graphic, but it was results of a poll, not of the finale.

    My, from a couple of the previous comments, it seems that some people are certainly bitter and mean-spirited. These numbers don’t surprise me at all. What did absolutely floor me was when they announced Carrie as the winner. In case the rest of you missed the first part of this article, it was about Bo’s spirit of giving in a time of tragedy. Kudos to him as a shining example to others. Kudos also to him for, as usual, giving props to Carrie on her sales and indirectly plugging her cd along with his own. That is so Bo, a class act all the way around. Maybe the first couple of people who commented should take a page from Bo, next time you’re going to post something nasty, just ask yourself, what would Bo do? I can’t wait for Bo’s cd to drop! And congrats to Carrie on her first week sales as well.

    No way were they seperated by 134 votes out of 45 million cast lol. More like 1.34 million in my opinion and I cant believe BO fans are trying to use this – He will do well and I like him but no way will he sell within 134 records of carrie as should be the case if this is correct

  6. Sadie Says:
    November 27th, 2005 at 8:20 am

    Exactly how are Bo fans are trying to use this?? You Carrie fans need to step back and take a good look at yourselves. Shame on you for being so mean-spirited. She won the bloody thing, remember?

    True Bo fans know that the competition ended months ago. Bo is exactly where he wants to be. He is a star now and his career will only grow. Bo has many fans. And Bo would be happy if he could only reach a hand full of people with his music. He is not a “rock star”. Bo is a true musician that lives his God given gift everyday and will continue to write and perform no matter where this road leads. And along the road he will continue to spread God’s love and help people when he can. If you don’t know the “real” Bo Bice you are missing the boat.

    I can’t believe people are arguing over this matter… The competition is over with people this is so high school drama. They both have a big fan base and their fans adore them.. Leave well enough alone AI is over. Who care how many votes Bo lost by. I will be Bo’s fan 110% and dont care that he lost. Case closed……

  9. Annie Says:
    November 27th, 2005 at 9:36 am

    Bo’s fans did not post the 134 figure on the bottom of that Fox news shows.

    Carrie’s album is released as a Country album so I think it will sell more but that in no way has anything to do with the number of votes separating them in AI, or mean that Carrie is a better artist. They are very different artists. Like Clive said in People Magazine Bo is a legitimate musician. As far as the total of votes I think that there was no way that Carrie wasn’t going to come out the winner. Won’t even bring up the Idol tour.

  10. CBM Says:
    November 27th, 2005 at 10:25 am

    Several points to make.

    (1) Carrie is ALSO a legitimate musician! Her cd is excellent and shows so much of her talent!

    (2) The gist of this article is about Bo’s generosity – that is a good thing…. kudos Bo.

    (3) They will BOTH succeed so they BOTH win….. duh.

    (4) Media ‘drops’ stories ALL THE TIME right before an artist’s release of cd …

    (5) The 134 was poll result as stated by poster above.

    Congrats to both Carrie and Bo.

    134 votes?? Isn’t it odd that this “startling revelation” is being made now when AI 5 is slated to start in just a fraction over two months?? Sounds like info that AI themselves planted to get the controversy geared up and people hyped up over season 5. That’s jmo. Anyway, best of everything to both Bo and Carrie and Constantine Maroulis…..you ROCK!!

    Bo, as always, I love your beautiful soul and your beautiful giving spirit. I’m looking so very forward to Dec. 13 so I can get my hands on your cd.

    Carrie fans, please get a grip. The season four competition is LONG over and Carrie won the AI title. Does it really matter by how many votes she won? Let it go already, most of Bo fans have and only look forward to being able to by and hear his wonderful music.

    In Cape May County, New Jersey hundreds of votes for Bo Bice were mistakenly diverted to a local phone number.

    Bo may have been the winner if these votes were properly registered.

    Regardless of the outcome, however, Bo is going to do just fine.

    I wish both him and Carrie great success.

    I think Bo is a wonderful person and his music is awesome! This show was about the Bo we have all come to know and love. Bo promotes Carrie every chance he gets! So why can’t the Carrie fans leave him alone and appreciate him for who is is! Also, if Carrie fans want to do battle here, they should look at her new video “Jesus Takes The Wheel” and watch how she slaughters it with her lip synching!!! But, it is a good song to listen to. Congratulations Bo for being the hero of the week on Heartland. You are my hero and my idol each and every day!

    November 27th, 2005 at 2:06 pm

    Belle – i am glad she does not have the ability to lip synch. Artists like Hilary duff are pros at it for one reason…. They can not sing!!!

    As for Bo good luck to him – He is a decent individual. If anything I am more disappointed with clive davis who is selling bo down the river with the songs that he has chosen for him to record. Bo is far better than that IMO

    Hey, woah! I can’t believe how nasty the Carrie fans have gotten over this little piece of news. I think if they saw the piece and heard the way Bo praised Carrie’s CD and actually promoted it, they would be ashamed of themselves for fighting over those 134 votes. I, myself, believe, that there must have been some proof to back up that total or FOX news wouldn’t have put it up there…and if there isn’t any proof, wouldn’t you find it hard to believe anything else FOX news puts out to the public?

    You go, Bo, you are my American Idol now and forever!

  21. debra Says:
    November 27th, 2005 at 4:34 pm

    What does any of this matter now at all? As has been so well stated, this piece was about Bo being a “heartland hero” because he is all about giving back and spreading the love.
    Don’t change a thing, Bo. We love you as you are. And promoting Carrie, very very classy. But then, we always knew you were.
    Looking forward to the new cd/dualdisc and many many years of enjoying the awesomeness of Bo’s music.

    Well if it was that close Bo will have no problems recording sales of close to 315k in his first week.

    I personally do not believe he will sell more than 200k reflecting the 20% more singles sales that carrie sold but only time can tell.

    Carrie is not an artist at all but just a pretty girl who has a nice singing voice. Her CD is good dentist office music.

    Bo Bice is somewhat of an artist in his own way but all of his big generosity is just for show. He couldn’t stay in his house because of paparazzi so he made a big show of look how wonderful I am letting these poor people live in my house. He should have just done it and shut up about it.

    His new Clive Davis CD stinks bad and I’m sure Bo realizes this.

    Excuse me? Bo has never made a big deal about this. He always down plays it. Bo’s father in law did the same thing with his house. Its everyone else that has done made a big deal about this. Bo doesnt see himself as this hero or that he did anything amazing. He saw that someone was in need and was able to help. Its as simple as that. If you were a fan of Bo you would know this. he has always been this way even before AI happened. He mother raised him to give back as he said. Tooo bad your momma didnt raise you right! How have you given back may I ask?? As for Bo somewhat of an artist. This artist can play many instruments, piano, guitar, harmonica and the saxophone and he writes his own music which will be on the CD. Again I have to ask what are you good at?? I bet not much since you seem kinda jealous of Bo’s generosity and talent!

    How dare you try to question Bo’s generosity in the face of tragedy and loss? I bet you’re a Constantine supporter because anyone that would question this has to be. Well if you are you need to know that Constantine will not get the respect of the music industry no way. He is only interested in sleeping around and is too busy cavorting with exotic dancers and D list Celebrities so he can look like a stud. The industry needs people with values, principles, musicality and talent people like Bo and Carrie not Constantine. So forget your feeble attempts to discredit Bo it will get you know where people love him.

    Bo Bice is NOT a class act.

    http://www.thesmokinggun.com/archive/0427051_bo_bice_american_idol_1.html
    Arrested for felony cocaine possession, marijuana possession, public intoxication, possession of drug paraphernalia.

    This is NOT a class act, and NOT a role model.

    A talented singer? Seems like it so far, but the ultimate test will be when his album comes out. I suspect it’ll be really good. Buy it, even. But he’ll never be a class act or a role model in my mind. He ruined that before he ever entered the spotlight.

    No one claimed that Bo is a role model. All of those things that he was charged with were in the past; he has since been pardoned for his actions. Constantine’s website promotes the use of marijuana among other things. Bo is a married man with a family now and has a promising career ahead of him. Constantine continues to troll the clubs of NY and LA bedding lap dancers and other questionable conquests. He has yet to announce if he is indeed signed to a record label, instead he goes on message boards disputing trifling rumors and gossip.

    Hi GoGo dear, don’t you have anything a bit more recent? BTW, shouldn’t you be looking at your own boys lack of class?

    Let’s see, there’s con’s approval of making snuff films, his crude gestures at miss Hilton, his sex acts in a car at a BBQ where there where children present that could have walked by an gotten an eye full, and his general need to bed everything with a split that will have him. I would also like to ask you if you really think sweet connie has never partaken of weed? If you do, then you really are a major FOOL.

    That’s nice of Bo to do!! But uh, I saw the Producer Simon on TV and he said the vote wasn’t close at all so Fox must have used that old clip when they first aired their onlie poll info.! Anyway, congrats to both of them!

    Carrie has her Country Cd and Bo has a Pop CD! They will both do great!

    Of course Bo is a role model. He’s kind funny , hard working, generous, and giving. Everyone that has worked with Bo has said this. If I had children I would want them to be like Bo. Everyone makes mistakes in their lives. Hell if someone can become president with the past they have Bo ‘s shouldnt be a problem!!! Bo never pretended like he was this angel unlike someone else. A good greek boy with morals? hahahahahahahahahahahaha. I will take Bo as my role model over that phoney piece of crap any day. Im very proud of Bo and who he is. I just wish there were more people like him, this world would be a better place!

    All of this bashing on either Carrie or Bo is just like something out of high school. Get over it, Carrie won, it doesn’t matter by how much. Besides, ask Clay Aiken, second place isn’t so bad :) I’m sure Bo will have great success with his upcoming album. And good luck with him. I’ll bet he’d be thrilled to have the kind of success Carrie is having. And keep in mind, what really matters is not what happens on American Idol, but what they do with their careers, just look at Kelly Clarkson. She is a superstar not because of AI, but because she made it that way. Carrie is having tremendous success, and we can expect more great things from her and Bo (and watch out for Vonzell in the future!!) Good luck to them all.

    This is for the post above mine. I think that it is terrible for you to bash on Simon. Not only is he the only judge on the panel who knows what he is talking about, he is the only one keeping things in perspective. All Randy does is ramble and try to be cool and Paula will say that the less than mediocre singers are the best thing that happened to the music industry. Simon says it like it is, even though at times he can be a little harsh. Oh, and by the way, he has predicted the outcome of EVERY SINGLE SEASON and he has been right EVERY SINGLE SEASON. He knows what he is talking about and if he were to leave, American Idol would fall apart.

    Oh yeah, Simon really knows what he’s talking about. LMAO!! Wasn’t it Slimon that told Bo after he sang Freebird that he needed to pick more well known songs? Then didn’t he quickly change it to he shouldn’t do such a anthem song to cover his ignorant azz when the audience booed and laughed at him?

    Yes, Simon correctly picked the winner for season 4 as he and TPTB at AI totally rigged the show so that Carrie would win. For example remember the finale, when both Randy and Simon criticized Bo for being “nervous” when in reality he was suffering from a bowel obstruction and was sick as hell. They also had Bo and Carrie both sing “Inside Your Heaven” on the same episode during the final competition. Clearly, this song fits Carrie’s style over Bo’s. This post is not meant to be a bash but to give my opinion of some of the insidious methods used by TPTB at AI.

    I find this news not surprising in the least, from the beginning of the show, we all knew the top 2: Bo Bice and Carrie Underwood but one thing was for sure that no one knew at all that between the two who would win. I understand that Carrie’s album (Some Hearts) first week sales were unbelievably high, I think alot of teenage girls can relate to her (and then again teenage girls are most of the viewers watching the show) and Bo Bice’s album (The Real Thing) also sold very well in its first week. (WENT STRAIT TO #4 ON THE BILLBOARD CHARTS!!) thats incredible!! I think one of the main reasons that Carrie’s first week sales outsold his was because there was lots of confusion when it would finally hit shelves, from the day she won everyone knew it would be a November 15 release, and thought Bo’s would be Nov. 22 but it kept getting post poned (due to health reasons). I think both of these artists have a long and lasting careers ahead of them in the music business, they are both incredibly talented. Carrie has a beautiful voice, but Bo is more of the musican, he’s been at this almost his whole life writing songs and performing.

    I am fans of both artists, if I had to choose it would be: Bo Bice

    But that may be mainly because I like his genre of music more than country.

    One thing though: “Inside your heaven” both made singles of this song. Carrie released her single one week earlier than Bo did. Carrie’s spent one week at number 1. Bo comes along and REPLACES carries at the NUMBER ONE SPOT! That was the FIRST TIME IN BILLBOARD HISTORY that this had happened! BO HAS MADE HISTORY!

    ..but again both are great in their own way!

    Oh, God. Now I remember why I hated Carrie during the show. You Carrie fans are so immature and annoying. I just start liking the girl and then I run into you people, start ?ing myself about why I didn’t like her and then it hits me again. Carrie won by VTFW voting for her and if they hadn’t Bo (the rightful idol would have won) instead be arrogant here you should be writing thank you letters to VTFW.

    Umm. those of you who think that the lip synching from Carrie’s video is her lack of performance are rather ignorant. It has nothing to do with her and everything to do in editing. The editor was the idiot. Maybe they wanted it out to fast or whatever. Also, I would rather hear, a singers singer, sing great songs like what is on Carrie’s CD as opposed to an Average singer sing great songs.

    Carrie is selling very well and as of last night I was completely satisified that she really was more popular than Bo Bice. Since Bo has also been allowed to release a pretty successful album, I have no anguish about him on that score. What worries me about this piece of news is that Clay Aiken lost to Ruben Studdard three years ago by a margin that changed three times over the course of the evening. First it was 13,400 votes, then it was 1,340 votes, and then they said it was 134,000 votes.

    These folks seem to be obsessed with multiples of 134.

    I’m long over Bo losing, and I think Carrie has a lovely voice, but I’ve suspicious of the AI machine’s methods for several years now and this didn’t help. I do not think I care to watch anymore. I don’t trust the results. I don’t understand why they have a clause in the contract that says they will sue the contestants for FIVE MILLION dollars if they reveal what happens behind the scenes. I don’t understand why they have a clause in the contract that says they can remove any contestant at any time for any reason – or for no reason at all – and I don’t understand why they have a disclaimer that says they have the right to throw out any votes they like.

    OK…. The comment about the voting came from Fox News…. Enough said. And from the looks of the record sales of both, Carrie is the deserved winner. This wouldn’t be the first time Fox News got there facts wrong.

    I don’t really get it why fans fight over who really won the competition and we’ve been seeing this since AI2. That 134 votes was about a poll on fox’s website and not the votes for the show.

    Personally I am a country fan so I do prefer Carrie but I think Bo would have better success since country artists rarely make it big outside of America while rockstars go everywhere. Country isn’t really that famous as pop, rock and RnB globally.

    About the issue of her lip synching on her video, didn’t she sing well in the competition and artists really does that for their music videos since it should sound as it would on their albums.

    They both deserve to win, period. They’ve been successful as musicians and their success as record artist rest on whether they would be able to be a world wide phenomenon as Kelly Clarkson.

    Carrie Underwood is a SUPERSTAR. She has sold over 2 million albums- Bo Bice is a LOSER and FLOP and a FAILURE who is barely going GOLD. If he lost by only over 100 votes- why won’t anyone buy his FLOP ALBUM??? Huh? Where are the people buying his album like they are buying Carrie Underwood- who is a SUPERSTAR. He’s a ZERO- so where are all these VOTERS?? Tell me! Where are they?? They aren’t at the store getting his dreadful album full of awful pop garbage. Don’t anyone DARE mention him in the same sentence with Carrie Underwood- she is a star gone NOVA! Now why don’t all you Bice fans go crawl back into the diseased rathole you came out of!

    The awful performance by Bo (Carrie wasn’t much better) on the latest edition of Idol shows how talentless he is. Idol does not attract great singers and I have to wonder why. I personally know dozens better than anyone appearing on the show.

    I noticed that some very mean things have been said about Bo by some Carrie fans. I for one am a HUGE Bo Bice fan! Now don’t get me wrong, I used to dislike Carrie Underwood a great deal, but then I realized that it was cruel of me to HATE a good friend of Mr. Harold Elwin Bice Jr. I settled my differences and now I don’t mind Carrie. I don’t love her, but I don’t mind her.
