  • Worst Season Ever !!!

    10
    This has to be the worst set of contestants ever. The judges did a horrible job of picking talent. They seemed determined to pick singers with quirky voices or contestants with emotional stories instead of true vocal talent. And to make matters worse, the decision to shift away from songs that appealed to various generations to only songs that appeal to the teenyboppers has resulted in a loss of the older viewers and a continued decline in ratings. These judges need to go and the producers need to feature music from prior generations from time-to-time in order to capture a larger viewing audience. Another season or two like this current season will undoubtedly kill this show.

    If you do a little research you will find that reviews of these judges are overall very good. A matter if fact, there are many reviews that state this could be the best judging panel they have ever had. All this said, I've been an avid viewer of Idol since season 2. If this is the best set of judges they have ever had, and let's be honest, it's not, they've never been able to replace Simon, but let's stroke those reviews who's and say it is the best ever assembled. Um, how does it go? Proof is in the pudding? This top 10, now in the final 3, easily the worst group of singers in this history of this show. Who does that fall back on? Ah, yup, the greatest panel of judges ever assembled. I see quite a few people bashing Caleb and this confuses me. There was another guy, oh yeah, Adam lambert who was very similar is singing style and has made a very good career for himself on the back of idol (fact he did not win was a joke where is the kid that one that year, does anyone even remember him?) anyway, Caleb is a throw back heavy metal 80s-90s rock which I love! I Am a Caleb fan and I think he could carve a career out like Daughtry. Gina? Look, Jessica was a good singer but had next to no charisma and this late in the game that goes a long way. I am pretty confident it will be Gina and Caleb in what should be an entertaining finale. However, my confusion?? All of you who say The Voice is a much better show and that on that particular show the judges are not biased, ahhhh do you watch the show??? I love the voice but that's exactly what the judges are and they admit it! They pick their contestants and have their own team, so of course they are biased toward their team! Seriously people think before you write. I agree the show is a much better program than idol at this point in time, but to say they are not biased is crazy.. Finally.... I love J LO'S short mini skirts.. Sorry, she is piping hot folks and still has it... Those legs are crazy hot...
  • J LO CAM SUCKS

    10
    I don't watch to see J Lo and it's only recently someone can't get past their erection to actually move the camera to a contestant. STOP SHOWING HER OR WE'LL STOP BUYING YOUR SPONSOR'S PRODUCTS.
  • Can't Help Falling In Love With Jena!

    Still emotional after that beautiful song! Speechless!
  • 10
    Really!!!! i cant believe Jessica has made it this far!??? i still cant believe that america prefered Jessica over MALAYA and CJ they were and are better singers than Jessica... they should not let america do all the voting the judges should have the last the last word in my opinion because this time america is eliminating the wrong cant sing and and when she "does" she seems so fake!!!
  • THIS IS ABOUT JLO

    10
    I WANT TO REVIEW WHAT JLO MESSAGE SHE IS SENDING TEENS AND YOUNG WOMEN OUT THERE! I THINK THE WAY SHE DRESSES, IS EMBARRASSING TO WOMEN OF HER AGE! SHE LOOKS HORRIBLE! I LOVE WATCHING THIS YEAR, NOT SURE I WILL WATCH NEXT YEAR BC OF THIS! ARE YOU THAT STUCK IN A MID LIFE CRISIS THAT YOU HAVE TO WEAR SUCH SHORT DRESSES????

    OH, AND THERE WAS A YOUNG MAN FROM DEPERE, WI THAT TRIED OUT THIS WAS NOT DELETED FROM THE FIRST OR EVEN SECOND WEEK, BUT WAS NEVER PUT ON AIR!! I JUST WOULD LIKE TO KNOW, WHY????

  • American Idol Judges Definition: Twisted Logic

    10
    You almost feel sorry for the crop of lackluster, talentless kids on AI this year. But who do we have to blame for the worst lineup in AI history but the judges themselves who caved in to the PC racial and gender forces that are determined to make the show about diversity instead of talent. Before you throw the racist card at me, consider that some of my favorite singers on the voice are African American, Latino and female. But for AI this year any racism was directed at some impressive white contestants who were sent packing by the judges to create this so called fair cross section of contestants.



    Now the judges are saddled with them and I can't take any more twisted logic from Harry, Jennifer and Keith. When Harry doubles down on his, "This is the best group of contestants in Idol history," two weeks in a row, he just lost me as a former fan of his. And when Keith declares, "Baby, it doesn't matter if you hit the notes if you put enough emotion in it, baby," he lost me, again as a former fan of his. Keith is clearly ensconced in defying logic as he continues to support minority contestants over talented contestants such as Candice over Angie Miller. It was pitiful to see his nit picking of Angie and slobbering stand up worship of Candice. Finally we have Jenny Lopez, the sleazy agenda driven diva, who's agenda is to promote herself as if 15 million isn't enough for a musically challenged soft porn artist who judges idol contestants based on the size of the "goosies" she feels that the performance gave her. I have just deleted AI from my DVR for the first time since season one and it's sad but the devolution of music it continued to lob out weekly had to stop. All the silly stunts and props and even Billionaire Ryan Seacrest can't save this show. Most of the contestants that "The Voice" sends home are vastly superior singers than what remains on a show that once had a sense of excitement, a modicum of values and the biggest fan base on television~
  • Idol!

    10
    I don't know what everyone is talking about. I think this is the best season of Idol yet. The judges are great. The talent is outstanding. They don't need to show the bad people and I am glad they don't. No other top rated singing competition show does. I am so excited to watch the rest of this season
  • Bye Bye Nicki

    10
    Love the show please get rid of Nicki !!!!! Mariah is the one to keep ! Mariah is a Queen !
  • GET RID OF NIKKI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    10
    I am tired of Nikki on Idol!!! If she is on for another season I will not watch it all!!! The other 3 judges are great!!! She is the worst judge ever!!! Her attitude to everyone and everything is awful!!!! She is disgusting!!!!!! If IDOL wants better ratings they should get rid of her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She IS the reason the ratings have dropped!!!!! No one else!!!!
  • HELP ... WHAT IS UP WITH NICKI MINAJ & MARIAH CAREY...

    10
    I LOVE AMERICIAN IDOL BUT HAVE BEEN UNABLE TO WATCH A COMPLETE SHOW THIS YEAR.

    YOUR JUDGES ARE JUST PLAIN AWFUL. I LIKE RANDY HAS BEEN GREAT AND A CONSTANT..

    WHILE I LIKE KEITH URBAN ... THERE DOESN'T SEEM TO BE ANY SPARKLE....



    PLEASE, PLEASE BRING BACK STEVEN TYLER .... AT LEAST THAT WAY I COULD GET A LAUGH OR TWO. THIS YEAR STARTED OFF BAD AND HAS GONE EVEN FURTHER DOWN HILL

    IF YOU WANTED CONTROVERSY YOU SHOULD HAVE ADDED MINAJ AND LEFT TYLER.... THAT WOULD PROBABLY HAVE GIVEN YOU FIREWORKS.....



    CAN'T STAND MINAJ AND CAREY DOES NOTHING. URBAN JUST DOESN'T ADD THE SPARKLE THAT TYLER DID.... I KNOW HE WAS A LOOSE CANNON AT LEAST HE WAS ENTERTAINING...
  • Worst Idol Judge Ever

    Nicky Minaj lacks education, class, professionalism, dignity and integrity... So what is left? Nicky Minaj... This woman is as ignorant and belligerent as they come... She has an extend vocabulary straight from the streets, and that is being polite about it! The contestants work so hard and are dedicated to putting on a good show. The contestants like everyone else have their good and bad days and they do not deserve the harsh, ignorant criticism by the likes of Nicky...



    Randy is Randy, whether you love him or leave him, he is a pleasant character in this show; Keith Urban is very polite, professional, intelligent, and straight on with his criticism or praise; Mariah in my opinion, is respectful of the contestants, she understands how hard they work and their dedication to the show. I find Mariah to be caring and professional when she critiques the contestants and dose so in a polite and dignified manner... I really enjoy all the exceptional talent this year, and judges with the exception of the street hood!
  • Nicki

    10
    Nicki has got to go now, what are the producers thinking. We were fans of the show however this year with Nicki on the show it's unbearable to watch, what is wrong with her, she is very dis-respectful, she makes faces ande rolls her eyes when the other judges critique the contestants. Please, please give her the money and let her go, the show can go on with three judges. I just don't know why she was ever chosen to be on the show, she is a NOBODY, I guess the producers do not care about the raitings.

    Although I'm not one who posts on these things I just need to say that who ever picked these 3 Judges did a remarkable job! These 3 are the best Judges they've ever had on this show. I actually enjoy watching it again. I think Randy is such a good dude and Jennifer is the best female judge I've ever seen, she makes sense and tells it like it is. Now for Steven Tyler...I've listened to Aerosmith for years like everyone else has but never bought the music. I think he is one of the greatest true rockers of our time and he adds so much to this show. Even Ryan Seacrest acts more human then he ever did before. These are the BEST Judges that have ever been on the show of course Randy has always been there...these 3 blend well together. Who would have ever thought there was feelings in such a competitive industry...LOL
  • I miss Simon and Paula but I love Steven Tyler and JLo, and Randy too!

    10
    I watch the show hoping that Steven will sing a few notes here and there!
  • AMERICAN IDOL!

    10
    OK. I personally love American Idol! But, when people watch it and one of their favorite singers are eliminated...you blame the judges, right? Wrong. America is to blame! If you don't get your votes in your favorite singer wont win! I learned that the hard way with Pia Toscano. She is amazing, and America just didn't vote for her alot..when clearly she was the best singer in the competition! So America, get your votes in and don't forget to vote for Hayley (2nd best)!
    And why does America Idol have judges even though the judges don't decide anymore? I really confuses me, like America votes but yet we have judges sitting write there watching? I dont get, but Hey! I love this show^^^!
    Tune in on Wednesdays, and Thursday to see who will be your American Idol!

    Thank You
  • Absolutely love this years judges panel...J.LO is so beautiful and amazing..her style is off the charts...WOW. Steven Tyler is a legend and they bring so much to the table....

    Absolutely love this years judges panel...J.LO is so beautiful and amazing..her style is off the charts...WOW. Steven Tyler is a legend and they bring so much to the table....Fox nailed it this year wtih their judges..The show has amazing talent this year. As good, if not better, than its ever been. Its very fun to watch this season!...Good T.V. Unfortunately, you will get the "faceless" haters who blog about things other than their talent. These people are horribly mean and use the popularity of a show the opportunity to use hate speech. I dont get it. May the best talent win this year.
  • american idol!!

    i love this show but adam didn't deserve to be in the bottom 2 this week i think danny and matt should be there . i really don't like adam and i hope that he won't win this year . i think kris or allison should but kris is the best cuz he had never been in the bottom 3 or 2 but adam was once and allison 3 times all of the 4 are great cuz they could come this far in the show i think we have to vote for kris cuz he is the best
    sooo go kris!!!!!!!
  • Love

    I have watched this show from season one and have even cancelled plan so as not to miss it (a few years a go i had my parents write me a note saying our car broke down so i would not have to attend my school band concert because if i went i would miss the finale) the only complaint i have i with the new judge Kara. she is so full of herself and it seems like every critique she gives somehow ends about her (although i did think it was funny when she ripped off her clothes with Bikini Girl).
  • I love this show... it's one of my favorites.

    10
    I've watched this show since Season 1, and it still hasn't got old for me. My favorite season is Season 7 (my favorite contestants from this season are David Archuleta, Cook, Syesha, Ramiele, Carly, and Michael Johns). I also really loved Season 4 (my favorites from this season are Carrie Underwood and Vonzell Solomon), Season 1 (my favorites from this season are Kelly, Tamyra, and Christina Christian), and Season 8 (my favorites from this season are Megan Joy, Allison Iraheta, Kris Allen, and Jasmine Murray). I really hope Adam or Danny don't win, hopefully Kris does. I didn't like Season 2 at all, Season 3 was pretty good (hate Fantasia though), Season 5 was good (hate Taylor Hicks), and Season 6 was pretty good.
  • I don't get the getting old or stale comments.

    10
    Some seasons I enjoy the people more than others but I think the worst seasons were when Ruben and Fantasia each won. I didn't like it much the year Taylor did either but that was more about who went out before him. Anyway it is singing and unless you get tired of music I don't know how you can get tired of watching about music and listening to people sing.

    I guess because I listen to music just about every second I can I must view it different. Sure there are parts of the show I fast forward as I won't watch bad music. So for example I seldom ever watched Archie last year.
  • this is unreal

    I am in shock. Jamar Rogers going home. We must have not seen something the judges did see. That hollering girl is nerve racking. You got a man with to personalities. You got a homosexual that is a drama queen. Then you got one that makes weird faces when singing. This is going to be a very exciting show. I wouldn't miss this for nothing in the world. Figure of speech of course. Only thing missing is the bikini girl. That was a joke of course. I am disappointed in not seeing why the Osmond boy did not make it or Castro's brother.
  • So it's Feb. 11 and I just got up from watching American Idol. I am completely shocked and super upset that Jamar Rogers didn't make it. Looking at some who did make it, things aren't making much sense.

    10
    So after watching this last episode of American Idol I am completely shocked. As I stated before I cannot believe some of the idiots that made it through, yet the people with talent that got sent home. The show is starting to become more and more fake to me. I feel as though they are using people to get ratings, which is not fair. Jamar Rogers was so talented and he didn't make it. Jessi, Tatiana, and whatever that guy calls himself, Norm the wacko weirdo one!! They made it. They are part of the final crew!! I am beginning to wonder if they are even looking at talent. As Simon says pick the attractive one, how fair is that. I can definately say I am almost through watching the show. I am in total shock and honestly pretty upset that Jamar got sent home. Yes there were otheres on the show with talent, but he, he stood out in more than one way. He had his own style, his own voice, and he was a very good person. American Idol needs to invest in new judges who are looking for talent and not a pretty face!
  • A spectacular show, basically a talent search.

    10
    I love this show. It's cool to see all of the contestants, for better or for worse. I absolutely love the judges. Randy Jackson, Paula Abdul, and my personal favorite, Simon Cowell. In my opinion, Simon makes this show. American Idol would be nothing without Simon. Many think that Simon is harsh, however if you look at what he says, you realize that what he says is true. Simon's always right. It might be harsh, but it's all true. This show is very popular for a reason. I don't watch shows just to "Follow the crowd" but, this show is amazing.
  • The best reality show on tv.

    10
    I came onto American Idol in season 4 and wanted Carrie Underwood to win. After that season 5 I had many favorites, but they didn't win. Season 6 I absolutly hated as being the worst season ever. (I didn't see season 3 and I hear that was worst). Season 7 has to have been the best season by far. My favorite from the beginning of the top 24 was David Cook and despite everyone wanting Archie to win, the wordnerd prevailed. Also this season had many people who could actually sing such as : David Cook, David Archuletta, Jason Castro, Brooke White, Carly Smithson, Kristy Lee Cook, and Michael Johns. I cannot wait to see them all on tour.
  • One of my all time fave reality shows.

    10
    I've been watching this show since season one and I was instantly hooked' I watch it everytime it comes on. I do admit that I've missed at least 2 or 3 episodes of the show but that's not really alot considering the show has been on for seavan seasons. My fave idol so far would have to be David Cook. I know that alot of people would like Archelta to win but I'm glad Cook won he deserved it more. My fave female idol is Kelly Clarkson and love all her songs. Carrie Underwood is good but the only songs of her that appeal to be are "Before he Cheats" and "Jesus Take the Wheel". Jordin Spearks is amazing but she's still a newer idol(she's only been around for about a 1) but her songs are really good but I have to see have she progress from now to the next 1 or 2 years.
