'Old pros' dominate Fox's cast of 'American Idol 5' finalists

UPI News Service, 03/14/2006 

So much for predictions that this would be "the year of the teenager" on Fox TV's "American Idol" talent competition.

Of the 12 finalists, only four are under the age of 20, the New York Daily News noted Tuesday. Kevin Covais and Lisa Tucker are 16, Paris Bennett is 17, and Kellie Pickler is 19 years old.

In fact, two of the finalists -- Taylor Hicks and Mandisa -- were 28 when they auditioned but have since turned 29, a year past the "Idol" age limit.

The oddsmakers' favorite, rocker Chris Daughtry is 26. puts him at a 7-2 favorite to win season five, followed by Mandisa with 11-2 odds.
