Ridiculous eyewear model/spendthrift crooner Elton John thinks that American Idol's audience is "incredibly racist" after several black contestants found themselves on the bottom of viewer voting.

"The three people I was really impressed with, and they just happened to be black, young female singers, and they all seem to be landing in the bottom three...They have great voices. The fact that they're constantly in the bottom three — and I don't want to set myself up here — but I find it incredibly racist."

Come on, Elton, let's really go out on a limb and call it sexism. Everyone knows you can't make any money off of a female pop singer. Maybe if they were as big as Ruben Studdard they could get some Idol love.
