  • Disgusting. Ashamed for everyone involved

    This show isn't real at all. It's a giant puppet show. The judges are not judges. They are celebrities there to make the show look legit, when in fact everything about the show is fake. The contestant gets a yes or no from the producer. Not the judges, and they choose who is going to win before they even audition.
  • A bad show with bad voters.

    Let's get this clear right now: This show is BAD. The show's main problem is the demographic and voting audience, not to mention the incorrigible decisions of the judges. Season 13 was my final season and it seems 14 was the same for many people. The majority of votes go to "cute" teenage boys who may or may not possess any true singing competence. The judges are hypocritical (Bashing 13's Jess Meuse for not moving but not doing the same for Sam Woolf and Alex Preston who were much less interesting,) the votes don't go where they should, and it all feels fake.moreless
  • Heavenly Joy

    Why didn't we see this amazing little girl in the judges cuts shows???
  • This show really should be cancelled.

    I used to watch this but not anymore. One of the reasons was because of Randy Jackson and SIMON FREAKING COWELL leaving. Another reason is the contestants themselves. Here's what I mean.

    In the auditions, most of them that don't make it to Hollywood curse out the judges. Like seriously? That's just immature. Some even just sound cocky before their audition saying they're gonna win when they won't.

    Then it's said that this show is rigged. Now I haven't watched this season, but I'm just now hearing that a guy named nick has lied to the judges and he still won. Well if the votes are fixed I'm not surprised, or America had become stupid. Hell, CHRIS DAUGHTRY didn't win that season he was on (I think it was 7 or 8).

    Overall, I'm glad I watch AGT over this.

  • I am so tired of this show. American Idol is outdated, outplayed, and cheesy ( for lack of better words ). This show should be cancelled.

    I am so tired of this show. American Idol is outdated, outplayed, and cheesy ( for lack of better words ). This show should be cancelled.

    People put too much into this show, its such a fake reality show, nobody ever sings well and the show is getting to predictable. The only American Idol who has and ever will benefit from this show is Kelly Clarkson ( GIVE HER PROPS! )

    ***2015 Amendment I still am sick of this show, glad to see its finally coming to an end. I still stand by the desire for it to end. However, I would like to correct myself and say that many contestants over the years were and still are phenomenal talents. In addition to winner, Kelly Clarkson I must say that I will be forever grateful to AI for helping Carrie Underwood reach the rest of the world as well as a slew of other top 20 finalists.moreless
