Question: I was wondering how much you know about the rules of American Idol. As far as I'm aware, the age limit is 28. However, last week contestants were to choose a song from the year of their birth. Bo Bice chose a song from his birth year, 1975. Now, it's been a while since I've taken math, but doesn't that make him above the Idol age limit and therefore ineligible to win? David Perritano
Ausiello: Not if he was 28 at the time of the first audition on August 4, which he was. Bo's birthday is Nov. 1. Crunch your numb3rs again, Dave.
