More on Jordan Dorsey: Was He Set Up?

So it was clear that something was up with Jordan Dorsey last night because he kept insisting Usher’s “OMG” was not him.

Here’s an interesting tidbit from Lyndsey Parker at

“Here's what the audience didn't see: I attended this taping in person. Jordan's full response, when he was asked why he chose a song so unsuited to him, was that he was ‘offered’ it. It was not his choice, but he did the best he could with it. However, this comment was edited out of Tuesday's broadcast. So did producers set up Jordan, who'd been difficult during Hollywood Week, to be the fall guy, by making him do a tricky song that not even Usher himself can sing well live? If so, their plan worked. Jordan is doomed.”

I try to stay out of all the conspiracy theory stuff—especially this early—but the theory has to be considered since it’s clear that “OMG” is a TERRIBLE song choice. If the show did give it to him, why else would they other than to sabotage him.

And if it is true, why did the waste a spot on him they could’ve given Chris Medina?

But maybe most importantly, is that really how it went down or is that just Jordan being difficult again?
