Pop Idol finalists have a puke bucket.
Simon Cowell apparently makes contestants on Pop Idol 2 sick, literally. Ananova reports that “contestants get so scared about singing in front of millions of viewers that producers leave a sick bucket for them beside the stage.” The bucket has not gone unused; Roxanne, who was voted off last weekend, says Michelle puked after her performance. Five finalists remain on the show.
