Wow! I REALLY enjoy watching this show! Although I wonder if the way Simon responds, (with brutal honesty) is a part of the act, or, if Randy Jackson and Paula Abdul are just plain too NICE? I mean, why are their opinions so obviously different from Simon's all the time?
i dont care what you all think about american idol, i am a huge fan. I can wait for tuesdays and wednesdays just to watch it it is very entertaining , your just getting to old to be interested anymore and if it sucks that bad then dont watch it! American Idol Rocks America, every tuesday and wednesday!
I like the show but I like it only whenit is the last 10-15 people and they have to vote to keep them in. I like when they audition and all the funny people are on there but I don't like watching it very much.I only like it when someone is talented and not there for thier looks altough it is good to have a hot guy on there. Well Im off to review all my shows cya!
Sometimes I get a little sick of the drama between the judges and Simon always being such a jerk, but he can also be really funny. How many times does Randy have to say DAWG? Paula is a little fake, and cocky but generally treats the contestants well. Overall, Good.
This show is back and I love every minute of it. Reality tv has really taken over our television sets, but I have to say, I watch it.... .... a lot. American Idol is so interesting, and the judges are FABULOUS! Paula, she tells it like it is but, encourages them to pursue singing. Randy is just plain funny! he definately knows music and is such a cool judge. Simon, when you see a smile on his face, it just makes your day. SOmetimes you feel sad for the people who get let down by him, but he knows what he likes and tells it like it is. So anyway this show rocks, and I hope you watch it for great music, drama, comedy, and more great music!
This show is not at all about the millions of people trying to break into the limelight -that is just an extra string of events. The whole show is actually centered on the personal problems between the judges and if you happen to try out when the voting is to show one judge from the other -you are in. The actual talent is secondary, third, etc. The show should be called Should American Judge? The people who audition are just props in their weekly series and its time it should be told. I am willing to bet that if Elvis was fresh into the light and performed on their night of conflicting interst -Simone (or all) would have crucified him. After all, who would they have compared him to?
i love boon the long hair guy, with great voice and friendly attitude. Especially the way he winks ;) hey boon keep it up dude. last but not the least Simon, keep pulling legs of those who don't nkow how to sing ;) keep rocking!!!! i love paula she's hot kinda thing :D isn't it paula........
Okay I have to say this. Why did Simon let that one Twin who through the hissy fit go to the next round? I'm sorry I would have sent him on his way. I know they won't be on the show anymore due to their "legal troubles" but he was simply arrogant!!!
"My spirit is broken" and the dummy did not even bother to take the time to find out if his brother actually made it first.
Aside of that the show as fun to watch. Some people really must not have watched the show in the past or they really just get nervous and forget the words. I was amazed how folks were messing up so bad.
I think this a great opportunity for these contestants to prove they got what it takes to be the next american idol RANDY & PAULA are great but SIMON he is a true pain (in the you know what)SIMON is a very rude person he must have a very small penis cause he thinks very small of people he shouldnt JUDGE people the way that he does his tonge should be clipped
This show is such a good series becauase like I said in my summary it tells us a little aboutthe world of celebrities and all the stress and HARD work that goes into singing and becoming famous for it. I love watching the auditions! They are so funny and like all good shows they make fun of others so we don't feel so bad about ourselves(in this case that we are horrible singer!)and for those of you who actually have a decent voice and non family membersor friends tell you this it also gives you a chance at making your dreams(if they are to be a singer) come true. It is so cool to see a REALLY nice person pass along to the next round because that shows that while alot of the time you have to be tough and fierce to become famous you can also be the 'girl(or boy haha) next door' and make it as a celebrity. I love how this show makes you fall in love or absolutley hate these people you've never seen before, which most realities do, but for some reason this show does it with almost a pride..not just to hate or obsess over someone, but because they give you a REAL reason to. I have loved this show since the first year I started watching it(when Fantasia won). It is so cool and another good thing about it is unlike some shows that have to change their aproach every year or two to make it interesting Idol does the same thing year after year and is getting EVEN MORE popular!
American Idol this year seems to be okay to watch. It seems that on the auditions, they only showed the bad singers (if you really want to call them that!). There seems to be a lot more beeping of words too! I have really laughed at some of these people and felt sorry for others. I hope that we end up with some good contestants!
the early audition stages are hillarious with not much talent there is alot of comedy. some funny comments from Simon Cowell. some embarassing people that blatantly cant sing, think they are gods gift.when the talent is broken down it becomes more serious with a much higher standard of singing. the judges are a big part of the show and if they are not argueing or disagreeing they completely fall out and on occasion Simon Cowell has walked out of the auditions. once you start watching the show you have to continue through the whole series to se who wins, you pick your favourites and follow them throughout the shows.
I've been watching this show only since season 4, but I wish I would've caught on earlier. Season 5 looks like the best season yet, and I promise you, I won't miss a single episode, not even for a Pistons playoff game, that's how much I love this show! One reason I love this show, is because people tell me I'm an excellent singer, and I'm hoping to be on that show some day. The only thing, is that Simon Fuller, the creator, makes you sign a record deal with him after you win, where you make hardly any money, and they pretty much own you. Luckily, it's only for a year, so it can really pay off in the long run.
I just recently got addicted to this show when I realized how funny it truly is watching a bunch of bad singers get slammed by Simon Cowell.
But that is not where all the interest comes from. You fall in love with the contestors from the moment you hear their voice ring through the room and see their life and situation. You either love them or you wait for them to be kicked off; both of which make for interesting results.
I was surprised to see that the average rating of this show is as low as it was. This is a prime example of a great show seen by the wrong audience.
Yes, this is my guilty pleasure.
Three judges that either harrass or hail the attempted rise of young singers into the recording industry. Who would have ever thought it would become as popular as it is now?!
I began watching this show thinking that it was going to be one huge train wreck. Then again, I also started watching this show and thinking that Simon was the biggest jerk in the world. Opinions change, and mine certianly did.
I didn't agree with Kelly Clarkson as the winner for season one, last nights Grammy awards showed just how wrong I was, didn't it? At the 48th Annual Grammy's she beat out other industry icons including Paul McCartney...a living legend! This will put a whole new outlook on this show.
The show is addicting, sometimes hilarious, sometimes heartbreaking, but always entertaining.
A great "guilty pleasure" for everyone! Tune in and enjoy!
Who knew this show would last this long. I'm sure Fox will keep this show around for a while because everytime this show is on both tuesday's and wednsday's, it's rated in the top 3. I beleive it's usally number 1 most of the time. I feel that this show has it's funny moments but kinda gets old sometimes. And the judges seem they can't make up their minds. One minute they hear a good singer your so good, then there's another good singer, and say they're bad. I don't get it. Oh well.
American Idol basically a formula that stated out very good. Three Judges go around the U.S to find the next hit singer (for a couple of months) and then they move on and rinse wash and repeat. That's all good but since nothing has changed at all its basically the same show over and over again. It starts out with the horrible singers who think they are good, and then the good are filtered out. They get to were the competition really heats up were the people of the country vote for the best. Fin.
That's pretty much it even the judges are the same. Simon (The fake Brit) flirts with Ryan Seacrest and makes people cry, Paula is nice and sweet, and Randy well he's the black guy and you know what that means! Yes he says "Yo Dawg" a lot. So unless you like trash TV that once was decent (like Survivor and every other reality TV show). So basically the hottest show on TV will hopefully fizzle out and at this rate in hmmm maybe 2040.
I was one of those who thought we were about done. I was wrong. After tonight's episode it seems to me to be better than ever. This year's star will probably be the biggest ever. I can't believe how good this show is in terms of all the different segments. That ``Joy to the World'' thing was amazing. Simon will be a billionaire by the time this show runs it course, and deserves it.
I hope when we get to hollywood, somone at least two or three people stand out,last season was so good all the finalist had real talent and deserved to be there, it was so good if one of three or four people won I was fine with it, so I really what this season to be better instead of worse.. we can only wait and see..
i gave this show a low score because i only watch the initial auditions where terrible singers come up and embarass themselves. My problem is that much of the show is sooo obviously staged which defeats the purpose, but hey... thats reality tv. now, simon can be rude sometimes but everything he says is true. if the singer is rubbish, they are usually so. if they have no chance of appealing to america, then hey look, even if they go through, they never win. not everyone can be paula abdul. no one notices though, she says exactly what simon says, but not with words, its on her face. the show is ok for a laugh but has no chance now to create a viable pop star as it shows american people manufacturing at its worst. and come on girls, u would not have a crush on clay aiken if you just met him on the street! Maybe im being cruel but it might just be cos im british, like good old simon!
The show is, bla bla bla. The only reason I gave it a score above 1 or 0 is because a couple times during the end of the seasons it was mildly entertaining. I'm glad it's there for those that succeed; I guess … what… 6 out of thousands and thousands that get their dreams crushed, actually achieve something by doing this.
even kelly clarkson who won this show wants nothing to do with it. she wouldnt let the show use her songs... this show is pathetic. i cant believe so many people watch this show. all i can say is that it is an awful waste of time. why has it lasted so long?
A great Show!!! I mean, watching someone become a world famous super star is soooo cool and it's fun to watch the losers on ausitions humiliate themselves on national television. Great show, and I highly, highly, HIGHLY recomend it! Yep, so gooodd....(I ran out of words........) Oh well. You all get the pcture :D.
The show has gotten worse over the years along with the bias comments and snarls and gleams of the panel of judges. Oh I'm sorry panel of Idiots...It is Simon's money maker and he says what he wants. Mr (Lack of real talent)Randy The DOG ..at the helm along with burned out, loveless Paula who is a pansy on the show. get a real panel of judges and a real Ido, show soon! Please...Turn it off it is really bad!
Ok so the first season of American Idol was a hit, they should have left it like that. I can no longer stand watching this show, no wait I take that back the only good part is the auditions, but other than that the show sucks. The judges are just out right rude, especially Simon he takes the cake in being rude. But honestly I mean it’s the same thing every season, Simon shows his true colors, people embarrass their selves on national television, the good singers always get eliminated, and one person is always crowned the next American Idol. Nothing special here just a waste of an hour if you ask me. At least put some spice or jazz in it, I want to see some people actually compete in things related to music and stuff.
American Idol is stupid! all they do is laugh at people with less talent than them! they are so mean! so what if people aren\\\'t as good as them? just because a person is kind of bad doesn\\\'t mean you can be mean and pick on them! I think American Idol SUCKS!!!
I'd have to say better every season becuase it is, more interesting, more suspenseful, more funny, just more entertaining. I cant wait until the end of this season to see the winner! Did I forget to say that Simon is hilarious!! his jokes, the just plain horrible contestants, you gotta love it all!
