With only a week left until the season 12 premiere of "American Idol" — an event that will introduce viewers to the latest line-up of celebrity hosts (Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj, and Keith Urban) — a new, American Idol inspired, "tell-all" novel may have the show’s new celebrity talent rethinking their contracts.
Elimination Night: A Novel (Amazon Publishing/ New Harvest, on sale January 8, $25.00 hardcover, $9.99 digital list price), an addictively readable work of fiction inspired by the hit reality TV singing competition American Idol, will forever change the way you watch talent competitions. Whether you love—or love to hate—shows like The X Factor, The Voice, or So You Think You Can Dance, you will devour this hilarious account from an anonymous author with intimate knowledge of the behind-the-scenes workings of a top TV talent show.
Assistant producer Sasha King—a down-to-earth young writer who finds herself suddenly on the inside of a world that both repels and fascinates her—ushers readers into the world of Project Icon, the once-mighty juggernaut that’s lately taken a hit in the ratings. In an attempt to get back on top, the show has recently hired two new celebrity judges—entrepreneur-actress-singer Bibi Vasquez ("Crew to be forbidden to make eye contact with Artist AT ALL TIMES," reads her contract) and rock legend Joey Lovecraft, a priapic wild man who doesn’t even own a TV (it goes against the teachings of his guru, Tibetan high lama Yutog Gonpo). Both keep Sasha working non-stop. In addition to the demands of the new judges, Sasha has the task of handling frighteningly robotic host Wayne Shoreline (who may or may not eat puppies as part of his pre-show prep), young would-be stars—including the foul-mouthed Mia Pelosi and the chaps-wearing Jimmy Nuggett—muckraking gossip columnists, and the powerful executive of a competing reality TV talent show. The combination of characters will leave readers swimming in a cocktail of pure crazy: Project Icon.
A delicious, madcap reading pleasure, Elimination Night is an uproariously funny look at the backstabbing, ego clashes, and 24–7 snafus that transpire behind the scenes of a smash talent program. The details of its inner workings are so accurate that the book had to be written anonymously. Inspired by real people and events, this work of fiction takes readers and fans (devoted and closeted alike) on a joyride through the TV entertainment business.
