The VFTG Moderators will save JAX Cole on American Idol 14

Jax (Jackie Cole)

Jax (Jackie Cole)

As American Idol 14 Top 4 was revealed with Tyanna Jones’ elimination leaving Nick Fradiani and Jax Cole as the remaining Vote for the Girls picks, The moderators have decided to use their Moderators’ Save in the event should Jax Cole is eliminated.

However, unlike in years past, where we encourage you to vote for the ladies, this year, Ava Zinn decided to change the rules on the web site to appeal the female demographic that was addressed earlier this year.


Sawyer Fredericks Projected to win ‘The Voice’ (May 4, 2015)

This may be a first for the American version of Vote for the Girls (this web site).


Looking at the sources and iTunes bonuses, Vote for the Girls is projecting that Meghan Linsey will likely be runner-up to Sawyer Fredericks in The Voice 8 Final. Sawyer has five iTunes bonuses compared to Meghan’s two.

One person stands between a Vote for the Girls victory on The Voice 8, as we witnessed last week thanks to our fans of this web site we helped India Carney advance to the The Voice 8 Quarter-Final (Top 6) from the show’s Twitter save and quite possibly an outright victory.

Four VFTG moderators currently have a shot as the winning moderator:

Ava Zinn & Kymberly Alvaraz: India Carney (Team Xtina) and Meghan Linsey (Team Blake)

Holly Everman: Koryn Hawthorne (Team Pharrell)

Julia Passalt: Kimberly Nichole (Team Xtina)

Thia Tola: Sawyer Fredericks (Team Pharrell)

Should Joshua be eliminated tonight, we will have a Vote for the Girls victory even though there could potentially be a Male VFTG pick (Sawyer) and four female VFTG picks as always (India, Meghan, Kimberly, and Koryn). In addition, should Sawyer and Meghan are the final two, both of them will be in the VFTG Hall of Fame as dual winners (similar to the two winner format of So You Think You Can Dance 9 and 10).

NBC’s ‘The Voice’ on iTunes (May 4, 2015).




It is just not the birthday yours truly, Holly Everman wanted to celebrate her 35th birthday. Our girl on Team Adam, Deanna Johnson is gone. Now only two Vote for the Worst picks stand in the way for a Vote for the Girls Victory on The Voice 8.


We will post the episode with last nights DWTS 20 and tomorrow’s American Idol 14 results in addition to the previous episodes that haven’t been uploaded yet, and Ava’s been one busy lady.


Pink Team WINS American Idol 14, Maddie & Adanna Eliminated

It’s deja vu again and things haven’t been been going great for the entire purple team moderator panel since I am the only woman with four transgirls–Ava, Julia, Kendra, and Rhonda. But there is a chance for the Purple Team and Maddie Walker being in the Vote for the Girls Hall of Fame at the end of the season.

With Sarina-Joi Crowe finishing 12th place and Shannon Bethiaume eliminated in the Top 24, the remaining VFTG picks for Ava and Kendra were Adanna and Maddie, respectively.

After it was announced only the three girls–Jax (Tracia Ward’s pick), Joey (Holly’s pick), and Tyanna (Kellie Rock’s pick)–and the two boys–Nick (now is my pick as a solo moderator since Ava’s pick of Sarina-Joi was eliminated) and Daniel (Thia Tola’s pick) survived the elimination, it is all Pink Team moderators from hereon out. This is the first time in Vote for the Girls history that has happened. What this means now is that these possible scenarios likely to happen:

  1. Girl vs. Girl final (Jax, Joey, and/or Tyanna) or Winner of Idol is Female: According to legend, this American Idol season is supposed to be the end of the Kristy Lee Cook or WGWG curse.Should the American Idol 14 Top 3 be all female–not only will we be celebrating the second Idol victory and the TRIPLE VFTG VICTORY, but either Tracia, Holly, or Kellie will the winning moderator. Also Maddie Walker and Lovey James of American Idol 14, Emily West of America’s Got Talent 9 (reversing that loss) and Audrey Kate Geiger of Rising Star will be inducted in the VFTG Hall of Fame.
  2. Guy (Nick or Daniel) vs. Girl (Jax, Joey, or Tyanna) American Idol 14 finale (DOUBLE VFTG VICTORY): Tracia, Holly, Kellie, Thia, or I will be the winning moderator as early as the Top 5.
  3. Nick and Daniel in the finale: Thia or I will become the winning moderator and it will be the second time a Male VFTG pick will be in the Hall of Fame. In the event Nick Frandiani win, it will be the second Alex & Sierra pick to win since The X Factor 3. In the event Jax is the last woman standing will also get the recipient of the Moderators’ Save and the Pink Team will not face a punishment for failure. The purple team’s only hope right now is that one of their picks on Dancing with the Stars 20 wins.
  4. WORST CASE SCENARIO (four non VFTG Male picks/aka Vote for the Worst picks) wins American Idol 14 and Jax is not the last woman standing on American Idol–The pink team will be forced to participate in So You Think You Can Dance 12 and will take part in the Leg Beards for Breast Cancer punishment in October 2015.

Ava Zinn said of the elimination

“You know, I’d like to begin my remarks by saying this, and I mean this in all due respect; I do the Vote for the Girls web site for a reason and I’ve run this American version of the site for five years now  and I’ve been a webmaster for 16 years, and tonight I saw and heard one of the most disgusting, rudest, sick, demonstrations I’ve seen in my entire webmastering career. Probably the worst elimination, if not personally the f**king five worst I saw in the six seasons of Vote for the Girls. When Maddie (Walker) & Adanna (Duru) got eliminated, I actually looked up into the audience and saw people standing, clapping, and cheering the elimination. And I say this, those are some sick, sick, sick a***holes! sick! I thought it was horrible, disgusting, embarrassing, shameful, it stunk! People are sick when they do something like that; absolutely f**kin’ sick! Girl’s out there busting her ass like all our Vote for the Girls picks were, gets their vocal cords blown up, not badly hopefully, and (the audience of Vote for the Girls) they’re standing and cheering and clapping! Those are sick people! Sick in the head! They oughta get their arses thrown right out of the set!”

Zinn also commented about the Purple Team’s performance

“Well, what happened on American Idol tonight was, Julia, Rhonda, Kendra, Kymberly, and I got our arses kicked. Errr—the Top 12 and Top 11 Redux, we just got our arse totally kicked. We couldn’t do diddly … poo getting votes for Sarina-Joi, Maddie, and Adanna. We couldn’t get a win. We couldn’t dominate against Holly, Kellie, Thia, and Tracia (on the Pink team); we didn’t try our best. This American Idol 14, we sucked. We couldn’t stop Leonard (Lai) nor the Pink team. Every time Joey (Cook), Tyanna (Jones), Jax (Cole), Nick (Fradiani), and Daniel (Seavey); they went down and got votes for the Pink team. The purple team totally got our arse totally kicked on Idol—that’s what it all boiled down to. It was a horseshit American Idol season. Horseshit. I’m totally embarrassed and totally ashamed.

The transgirls and Kymberly did a horrible job. The contestants we supported did a horrible job. We got our ass kicked on American Idol 14.


In the dressing room after the loss, Zinn went off on Kendra and Julia

“The Pink Team’s better than the Purple Team; we’re not f**kin’ good enough. We shouldn’t be thinking about beating the Pink Team; we shouldn’t be talking shit about it, ’cause we ain’t f**kin’ good enough. And fans and reporters out there shouldn’t write about any of us being a winning moderator right now and all that f**ing bullshit. It’s not good enough for me and not good enough for both you to beat those girls on the Pink Team and it was proven out there for American Idol 14. It’s that simple. We’ve got a long way to go; we’ve got a lot of f**king work to do on The Voice 8 and Dancing with the Stars 20; and close don’t mean shit. And you can put that on Facebook for me. I’m tired of coming close, and we f**king need to work and bust our arses off until one of us is the winning moderator.

“Could’ve, would’ve, should’ve” is the difference in what I’m talking about! The good female contestants don’t come in and say “Could’ve.” They get it done to make the final and win it for the Vote for the Girls victory! All right? It’s that simple! I’m tired of saying “Could’ve, should’ve, would’ve.” That’s why we ain’t good enough yet! ‘Cause we’re saying “Could’ve” and they ain’t!

I’m pissed off right now.

I’m getting the f**k outta here. If we don’t gonna get the victory in these two other competitions–and f**king recover, then we’ll f**king do the make-up competitions until you can’t even suffer. I’m absolutely f**king tired of this shit! I’m f**king seriously tired of a losing moderator record!I’m f**king tired of losing to Holly! I’m f**king tired of losing to Kellie! I’m not here to f**k around in 2015! You two maybe, but I’m not! I will f**king guarantee you that if we don’t f**king win Dancing with the Stars and The Voice this cycle, you’re going to f**king believe the next f**king days! This isn’t why we do sites like (Vote for the Girls) ours! I will NOT get my arse, (to Kendra) your arse, (to Julia) your arse, (to Tricia Rhodes, Rhonda’s widow) your arse, Kym’s arse beat on Dancing with the Stars and The Voice! You three better f**king get that straight right now! That was absolute f**king bullshit! I’m f**ked, (to Julia) you’re f**ked, and (to Tricia) you’re f**ked if you thought that was a f**king picnic! I had to sit around for a f**kin’ year with a losing moderator record and none of you will put me in that position again or you will pay for it like you can’t believe.

Kendra, I applaud you and Iowa to get votes out for Maddie (Walker) and for that you have earned immunity and you will not have to participate in a make-up competition.

For me personally, I’m f**king tired of coulda, woulda, shoulda, coming close, if only.”


Reports: Tess Boyer found, simply taking a break from social media

Vote for the Girls has learned about a major story from The Voice 6. If you are a fan of Tess Boyer, whether you’re a St. Louis Rams football fan or her music. KSDK, the NBC affiliate, reports that they spoke to Ms. Boyer that she is taking a break from social media to focus on other projects.

Gossip Cop is also reporting the former Voice contestant and St. Louis Rams cheerleader is safe and sound.

This whole rumor started when fans of Boyer, noticed that she had deactivated her account in late February, of which concerned fellow contestants and former VFTG picks, Bria Kelly and Christina Grimmie.

This story will be updated as new information develops.

VFTG USA moderator Rhonda Rhodes dies — Dead at 46

Rhonda Rhodes

Rhonda Rhodes – purple team moderator of Vote for the Girls USA — died suddenly while rehearsing for the UK adaptation of VFTG … VFTG USA has learned.

Sources close to RHodes tell us she was found unresponsive upon seeing that Eseme Denters (a contestant supported on VFTG UK) was not picked to advanced to the live shows — and was transported by ambulance to a hospital … where she was pronounced dead.

We’re told it does not appear there was any foul play.

Rhodes was 46.

REVEALED: The moderators’ Dancing with the Stars 20 picks!

This week we learned who is taking part in Dancing with the Stars 20. But three moderators have advantages by not participating in DWTS 20 while the other moderators made their DWTS picks.

First, Holly Everman’s pick of Alfonso & Witney won Dancing with the Stars 19 last cycle and as the winning moderator Dancing with the Stars, she has the advantage of not being required to participate in Dancing with the Stars 20.

Second, as DaNica Shirey as the last female contestant on The Voice 7, was saved from the Vote for the Girls loss on The Voice 7, the moderators did not face any punishment for failure (had the Moderators’ Save not been used, the punishment for failure would have been spending six hours in cold temperatures picking up aluminium and steel cans in Marion, Indiana) and Shirey is in the Vote for the Girls Hall of Fame even though Shirey did not win The Voice 7.

There is catch though, since the moderators save was used and Kellie Rock as the winning moderator, by default, also has the advantage of not participating in Dancing with the Stars 20. Kellie also did not participate in Dancing with the Stars 19 as she had the advantage in the fall cycle as Kellie made two great deals taking $5.3 million in two Male Moderator offers in The Voice 7 quarter-final ($2 million) and Rising Star quarter-final ($3.3 million) and earned immunity as her final respective Vote for the Girls picks, DaNica Shirey and Maneepat Molloy were eliminated.

Julia Passalt also took Male Moderator offers totalling $9.25 million in value (including $4 Million in cash, a $3.5 million RV, two 30 night stays in London, England, and Sydney, Australia before the winner of Rising Star was revealed in August and a $1.25 million offer made before The Voice 7 Top 10 Result.)

So that leaves five teams that are participating in Dancing with the Stars 20: Ava & Kymberly, Rhonda, and Kendra on the purple team and Lanise, Tracia, and the guest moderator that will be on the VFTG panel in Spring 2016–Thia Tola.

The picks were revealed on Twitter, and there are 12 couples on DWTS 20. There are no Vote for the Worst picks on Dancing with the Stars since all the moderators’ picks are good and the only way a loss on DWTS can happen if a DWTS couple not chosen by the moderators wins DWTS, unlike the America’s Got Talent and So You Think You Can Dance competitions.

The Twelve couples are:

  1. Emma Slater & Redfoo. Redfoo is a judge on The X Factor Australia. (EDITOR’S NOTE: Ava Zinn and Thia Tola will be moderators on the Australian adaptation of Vote for the Girls.)
  2. Peta Murgatroyd & Michael Sam.  Michael is an NFL football player.
  3. Kym Johnson & Robert Herjavec. Robert is a judge on “Shark Tank”–some show that’s on Friday nights.
  4. Keo Mosepe & Charlotte McKinney. Charlotte is a supermodel from Orlando.
  5. Derek Hough & Nastia Liukin. Nastia is some kinda athlete.
  6. Allison Holker & Riker Lynch. Riker is a singer from Littleton, Colorado and the cousin of Derek Hough.
  7. Tony Dovolani & Suzanne Somers. Suzanne Somers is best known for “Three’s Company.”
  8. Valentin Chmerkovskiy & Rumer Willis. Rumer is the daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis.
  9. Witney Carson & whomever…..
  10. Artem Chigvintesv & Patti Labelle. Patti is a well known singer and recorded the original “Lady Marmalade.”
  11. Sharna Burgess & Noah Galloway. Noah is some type of motivational speaker.
  12. Mark Ballas & Willow Shields. Willow is best known for her role on “Hunger Games.”

Purple Team picks:

The three transwomen (Ava, Rhonda, and Kendra) and Kymberly of Team Ava & Kymberly received Chris & Witney as a WILD card pick because Chris Soules is from the Cedar Rapids DMA (a secondary market of Team Kendra) and Witney Carson is from the Salt Lake City DMA (which WAS a secondary market of Team Kymberly in the fall cycle, and is now considered a secondary market of Team Ava & Kymberly).

According to the moderator rules when making DWTS picks, the contestant and/or professional origin must be supported by the moderator. One perfect example can be on Team Ava & Kymberly is if Josh Kaufman was partnered with Witney Carson.

Ava Zinn thrown out of VFTG USA after arrest

MARION, IN (March 12, 2015) – Vote for the Girls founder and webmaster Ava Zinn received a one show suspension after Zinn’s arrest Thursday for assault and disorderly conduct after pounding her first three times and got into screaming match, and was ejected from the set.

Zinn became angry when officials were attempting to negotiate a plan to continue production for Vote for the Girls while the facility was being remodeled (and displacing Zinn in the process). Zinn protested when a she learned that the available resloutions Zinn was offered did not meet Zinn’s standards and swearing at an official. Zinn said “I want this done the way I want to handle with and ZERO INTERRUPTIONS!”, and during the comment, pounded three times saying, “ZERO INTERRUPTIONS!” and got into the official’s face. When she continued to argue with the officials, Zinn was ejected and left the VFTG USA stage after NoSirGifts president and boss Jackson Steele came to the floor to talk with Zinn and officials.

EDITOR’S NOTE: NoSirGifts is the distributor of Vote for the Girls, and Aeverine Zinn Holdings is the owner of of this web site..

“I was shocked–that’s about as simple as I can put it,” Steele said. “I’ve never seen anything like this happen before. “Holly (Everman) said she just wanted us to keep things in perspective, to go out and continue production and not to let it bother us. I know it bothered me. We had an opportunity to find a reasonable solution that favor both the facility’s landlady, Ms. Zinn, and the moderators and Ms. Zinn’s actions were unacceptable. I’ve known Ms. Zinn and (Margaret) her mother for 20 years and clearly saw a very angry woman.”

In the meantime, Zinn’s daughter and girlfriend, Samantha and Kymberly (Alvaraz), took over directing the web site for the spring cycle premiere.

Ava Zinn was not available for comment after the game. Kymberly Alvaraz declined immediately to make comment and (Ava) Zinn will issue a statement on this web site and on her own web site (AvaZinn.com) Sunday night.

Everman, the Pink team moderator, said: “I think Ava’s temper fired us up, and we wanted Alexis Gomez to become the American Idol 14 winner. It got the crowd into the competition, and it was probably won or lost right there. I don’t remember anything like it. She coaches her way and I my way.”

Ava & Kymberly’s purple team moderators and some of the pink team moderators thought (Ava) Zinn’s actions were done to inspire the purple team, which the pink team recently being rewarded after Everman’s pick of Alfonso & Witney won the 19th season of Dancing with the Stars, and Kellie Rock’s pick of DaNica Shirey was saved from the Vote for the Girls loss on the seventh season of The Voice.

“It’s not something that we were really expecting to happen, but then again, we really don’t know what to expect,” VFTG Purple team’s Rhonda Rhodes said.

Rhodes’ teammate, Kendra Ray, said of Zinn: “She did what she thought was right.”

VFTG Pink Team’s Tracia Ward said: “I think Ava Zinn did it to get the purple team fired up. After the incident, we just wanted to beat them worse. I don’t think she should be suspended. I know Ava had a reason for doing it. If that’s what she wants to do to get her team fired up, that’s all right with me.”

Ward’s teammate, Thia Tola said: “I don’t know what she’s doing. She’s a tough boss and I think (Holly) Everman’s a tough moderator, too. But, she (Zinn) and Kymberly gets a little frantic at times. Getting into someone’s face and a screaming match at a over a television program is going a little too far.”

The incident was the latest in a series for the controversial Zinn, who last year auctioned off her virginity to Kymberly Alvaraz following Christina Grimmie’s third place finish on the sixth season of The Voice (which was won by her Vote for the Worst pick, Joshua Kaufman). Those two aforementioned incidents are also in a string of problems on the moderator panel. Everman was suspended from the moderator panel after being shoved to the floor by the late Khayla Chow after taking offense to Everman called Chow a “bi-Black-bimbo,” causing the Vote for the Girls brawl on April 10, 2014 and upon seeing that Jena Irene was named runner-up of the 13th season of American Idol, Everman shaved her head and binded her breasts (appearing more a female-to-male transgender individual) while Rock appeared as a Breast Cancer survivor during the summer of 2014. Everman was suspended again after a second DUI arrest in Indianapolis in August 2014. Alvaraz was suspended from the moderator panel after fatally shooting Khayla Chow and her friend, Victoria Glassering in October 2014, and was found not guilty of second degree involuntary manslaughter.

ORIGINAL STORY: Marion Police have arrested Vote for the Girls founder and webmaster, Ava Zinn after a dispute that got heated.

The 32 year old webmaster is currently facing charges of assault and disorderly conduct after she and another party got into a heated argument over the renovations and Zinn pounded a table three times shouting “ZERO INTERRUPTIONS” to the woman.


This story will be updated as soon as we get more information. However, production of of Vote for the Girls will continue production without Ava.
