She has already released an album, starred in a MTV documentary and has had her music featured in both movies and on TV. When she made it through to the Hollywood round the rumors began about American Idol fixing the competition and there were also questions as to whether the contest should be open to already seasoned singers like Joanna Pacitti.
This week new information is being released and according to Star magazine her ties to American Idolexecutives Michelle Young and Roger Widynowskithe from 19 Entertainment, the company that produces American Idol, gives her an edge over the other contestants.
According to a Star magazine insider,Joanna Pacitti has referred to Michelle as her “manager” and “best friend,” and credited Roger with “helping me get where I am today.” Plus, the three of them even lived in the same Los Angeles apartment complex for several years.
If the spoiler report is true, then Joanna Pacitti’s ties may be guiding her along to at least the Top 36.
