Domain names may reveal American Idol 5’s top 48 contestants

The top 48 American Idol 5 semi-finalists may have been revealed by URLs registered on the same day with the company that producers used.

Livejournaler Cambler “looked up all registrations done by NetNames UK on December 9th, 2005,” focusing on “the same registrar that the Idol production company uses.” The result was a list of 51 URLs with names—most of them American Idol 5 finalists. The other three were apparently coincidentally registered on this day.

The list, of course, represents a minor spoiler, as the Hollywood round, which begins next week, will feature well over 100 contestants.
