How the mighty fall

This little tidbit is in Rolling Stones's daily music news email:

American Idol runner-up BO BICE was rushed to an undisclosed Las Vegas hospital on Sunday for complications due to recent intestinal surgery. The rocker was last in Vegas in late August, with the American Idols Live tour, when he underwent emergency surgery to repair a blocked intestine and was unable to complete the scheduled dates. After ASHLEE SIMPSON was admitted to a Tokyo hospital after collapsing in Japan last week, Bice was scheduled as her replacement for last night's Radio Music Awards in Vegas. He was replaced at the last minute by the GOO GOO DOLLS. Bice is returning to his Nashville home to recover.

Caps are theirs, bold and italics are mine.

How far have the Goo Goo Dolls fallen that they're not just Bo Bice's replacement, but they're actually the third choice behind both Bice and Ashlee Simpson? Wow.
