The Wisdom of Crowds? Not on Indian Idol

Well looking at the quality of so called singers that keep getting voted onto mass reality TV shows like the Indian Idol and American Idol and who has to leave, makes me question the whole assumption of the wisdom of the crowds.

For two consecutive weeks Indian Idol lost two of its best singers, Deepali and then Puja. While others like Ankita and Prashant keep getting voted on.
