Did "Idol" Cheat Tuesday Night?

Were any of you Archuleta fans out there concerned that Archie would forget the words to one of his songs Tuesday night?

You needn’t have worried… reported today that the show used teleprompters.


Some people are saying the move turned “Idol” into “a glitzy round of karaoke” and that remembering lyrics is all a part of the performance. But considering all of the stuff they ask the final two to go through in that last week--Guitar Hero commercials, Disneyworld commercials and song recordings, movie watching, interviews, rehearsals for two shows--I’m not really opposed.

Of course, you know at this point I could really care less…

What do you guys think? Are teleprompters cheating?
