Fox has found a way to extend American Idol's second season by two episodes: add two more finalist slots. There will now be 12 finalists, up from last year's 10. The four remaining slots will be filled during Tuesday's wild card round. (Why not just give Kimberly Caldwell one of them now?) Speaking of Idol, what's the deal with this big "twist" that Simon said was coming up? Sources say viewers may finally get an answer to Juanita Barber's question, "What About the Children?"
