Welcome to the world of ’round-the-clock scrutiny, Frankie Jordan! The American Idol hopeful, who was seen advancing to the Hollywood Week during this week’s audition shows, and who created some Internet buzz because she had previous label experience — recording a track for the Win a Date With Tad Hamilton soundtrack —  appeared to accidentally admit to TMZ that she’s still on the show. Contestants aren’t supposed to discuss with the media whether or not they’ve cracked the season 8 semifinals, though the VoteForTheWorst Web site leaked a rumored Top 36 rundown; you can click here to see it, unless you’re a spoilerphobe like me. And Frankie, keep that trap shut!
