YORK, Penn. (PIX11) — A Pennsylvania couple apparently takes their “American Idol” very seriously.

Cops say 48-year-old Karen Elaine Harrelson and 57-year-old Gregory Stambaugh were watching the singing competition show last week at Stambaugh’s York home when suddenly an argument erupted between the pair as to which contestant should win the title — Candice Glover or Kree Harrison.

The argument reportedly escalated when Harrelson took a knife out and stabbed her boyfriend. Stambaugh stabbed the woman in response to the attack.

According to York Police, the dispute between the couple was over “American Idol” finalists Candice Glover and Kree Harrison.

After the knife fight came to an end, both boyfriend and girlfriend were arrested and charged with aggravated assault.

This, while America crowned Candice Glover this year’s American Idol. So in the end there was 1 winner and 3 losers.
