I am sorry but I really like Nicki shes fun and brings life to a dieing show I use to watch Idol but then got bored. when I found out someone cool, young and very different was on I wanted to see what else has change. I think that someone like Nicki is bring a younger crowed of people into watching this show.
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
i haven't watched idol for the past lets say 4 seasons and this is my first season back and i love it.
The range of talent , America is going to have a tough time falling in love with only one voice. I am reading reviews and yes everyone has their right to an opinion but it hurts that people cant just let talent be talent , they always have to point a finger its like "oh hes green so i that why hes on the show" i am like really , people they talent Americans have made it, be happy for them if it was you you would want the same respect for something you have dreamed and wanted all your life , so people not watching the show because of a judgment call of morals , look at your self first be like would i want to be judged for me being me or for my talent just make me sad to read this
ive watched this show forever since i was little. ive loved every season and ive watched it. let me comment on the judges. Paula Abdul- mrs. positive. this crazy judge uses her seal clap to make the contestants happy. randy jackson- sup dawg?
mr. middle here. simon cowell- hideous. mr.negative.
i usally agree with randy or simon. i predicted carrie underwood would win in the 24 week- she has had the greatest success so far.good for her- watch this family show(not always) on foxnetwork two or three nights a week ! its just so coolio yo! i i i i i like it yo!
I do no understand why this ridiculous show is still on the air. Some of my friends try as hard as they can to explain it to me but I don’t get it. I have seen some of the episodes and each might have its fun with watching people humiliate themselves on national television, but the show itself is fundamentally flawed. Yes some of the contestants have some talent, but does it matter in the end...no. I have noticed that every one of these supposed \"American Idols\" do have a record out on the shelves, but the problem is they only made one except for Kelly Clarkson which surprised me. The sickening part of it all is that people go out and buy there one album because they were on TV. Then the part that really frustrates me is that they are number 1 on the charts as best seller or the top song. I personally do not recognize these people as being the best because they do not deserve it. They make one album and just laugh all the way to the bank with your money because you bought the shows propaganda. Plus who wants to see a british person, a washed up singer who never did good when she could supposedly sing, and some random guy who worked with a crackhead criticize Americans on there singing ability...I don’t, and I encourage others who talk about or watch this show to stop. THE END
Everyone trashes Nikki on this. I think she's a great judge. She's interesting and accurate. I thought she'd be a disaster and instead she's the most interesting part of the show.
Keith Urban is very good and is great at leading off the reviews. Randy Jackson is the same as always and is getting stale. Mariah Carey is a diva. Daaaarrrrling! She says nothing and is too into her persona. Ryan Seacrest is by far the best host on television.
J Lo just likes to hear herself talk! She just blabs on and on pretty much saying the whole thing over and over. And Randy, he's just plain annoying! "YO, Dude", come on, we are not in the ghetto. Its also so obvious that they want Jacob to win. He's sings good, but I wouldn't give him all the praise. Randy has always done that though... he always favors the African American contestants! I miss Simon and Kara.
SIMON is banking mucho bucks from this venture and it is time America tells him enough is enough. Do we really need a variety show (If you want to call it that) to tell us what latest talent we should be looking for? The town of Hollywood is filled with people with a hell of alot more talent than what we see on this Simon filled cultural run phenom. Should we continue to think that only this show can provide the talent we need?Come on people, we don't need cash cows telling us what entertainment is! Should we wait for Simon to hit the billion dollar mark? Grow a brain and say enough is enough.
American Idol are a racist bunch including Randy against black singers. They sent the best male vocalist home tonight which happened to be black on this date 2/11 and kept the less impressive white males which were all white. I could not believe what I saw tonight. There is no other words to explain sending this idol home. I will not waste time watching this crapped in the future.
Can someone tell me why you can't submit a review unless it's 100 words long. I don't need a hundred words to state how I feel about the crap that's on television now but if you want a waste of words then here they are.
have no idea why this show is so popular but then I don't get reality tv in general. Seriously its dreck like this that is dumbing down the population. I don't care about this show and wish it would die already. Oh and Ryan Seacrest should die too.
Hmm well I pretty much summed up my feelings in the summary this is serious crap reality shows are a plague that needs to be exterminated. I don't get the appeal with this, Survivor, America's Top Model or any of the other countless reality shows I watch tv to escape reality not be constantly bombarded with it. Whoever thought reality tv was a good idea needs to be tortured severely. I say that all of the reality show creators need to be shipped off to a deserted island and then left there to starve to death maybe if we are lucky they will eat each other.
i really dont feel like it was fair to kelly to be voted off this week paris has money buying her voted. all of the weeks before paris was in the bottom 3 and tonight she wasnt voted off she really sucked last night kim ohio
the whole show tonight wasn\\\\\\\'t fair at all, putting kellie down with paris it should of been paris voted off not kellie, paris family money is buying some one votes, not fair at all, you should check all the votes again and amke sure some one can count dont let any of paris family be behind them , i was so mad i called for the whole 2 hours and voted so much , i just cant believe kelly is gone but she will have such a bigger and better life after this she will be a bigger amiercan idlo then the last 4 winners you\\\\\\\'ll see she will be on tv and songs after songs
this show must be the most boring show in the world its a reality show the only good thing about this show is when simon speaks he makes it better but after the begining it isent good anny more and you cant wath the show for more than 5 minutes. i cant realy belive that so many peapole dont now that they are bad at singing i mean 70% of all who come and try out for the show say that the are the next american idol but almost non of them can sing and they realy think that they can its frightening how obliveous they are about that. plus they realy should cansle all realety shows and put more good shows on.
American idol sucks, There are a buch of people who think they can sing. When they get rejected they cry til they have to life left in them. Simon has gone to far, he can't make fun of someone who looks funny. He cant help that. American Idol is a joke. America votes out the best singers. Chris if more famous than Taylor. Clay is more famous than ruben. Its just dumb. American Idol is to mean to the contestants and should be ban for that. I don't apreciate the show at all. I watched it once and gave up on it. Its just... terrible.
I watched the last episode for the next 3 contestants before wild card and i like previous years have picked all contestants. This is a producers choice not a people choice. My beef is why do they deliberately eliminate the African American Males when all the ones i have seen have talent and can blow you away. It seem every since Ruben won..the goal was not to let this happen again. I know there are times..that it is just not possible to satisfy the different taste of people but give me a break, you know the brother tonight is a much better singer than a Tatana. Give me a break..
I know I'm not the target audience for American Idol (I'm just a wee bit too old and uncool). The thing is, I just cannot figure out how amazingly successful this program is. I have tried to sit down and watch it several times, but I can't stand more than twenty minutes before the channel gets changed--or the TV gets turned off.
Most of the time, the singers are decent. It's the weak banter between the judges that I can't stand. I do have to concede that there's guilty pleasure in watching Simon rip some of the singers to shreds, but even that loses its luster after a while.
I just heard on the radio that it's ranked as the number 1 *and* number 3 TV show of the past three years from Nielsen. Amazing.
im pissed of at america because i know elise is the real american idol she gives her all in every single performance and she been in the bottom three for like 4 weeks now and it don t make any sense i want america to really start listening to this girl and start voting because this girl is amazing her voice is soo unique and just give me goosebumps in every performance if she leaves any time soon i will stop watching american idol

I though I was going to dislike the show since Paula and Simon were gone, but to my surprise I liked it, Steven is great, and so is Jennifer, and of course Randy but they just don't seem to pick enough blacks, for some reason, and when they are all off the show, I lose interest in the show, I finished with this show this year after Jacob left . But I do wish the rest Good Luck, and I will be back next year to watch. Hope next year they have a few more blacks they would be great.
Really the only good part is when the singers suck and when randy jackson or whoever says dog too much. The whole premise of the show is stupid too because everyone on there gets a contract anyway (William Hung....God). It would MUCH more fun to sing kareoke at your house.
I don't know why I started watching this stupid show. This show is scripted, fixed, and just lame. I'm not watching this at all in the 9th season or any other season of this show. It's a complete waste of time. All the judges and host could be replaced easily. Yet they keep on there and don't give anybody else not famous to get a chance judge the show.I started this show in in the middle of season five and I've been ever since and I like 16 and I was just to young to really what kind horror this stupid show really is.
I'm from Australia and i blame this show for spawning an Australian equivalent.
I saw some of one series of it, but i found it hard to pay much attention to it because its not my type of music, its a free leg up into the business when other artists struggle and the fact that they sing other people's songs makes it even more fake!
The ocassional time i slightly enjoy this show is when I see the pathetic tone deaf wannabes in the early weeks make a**es out of themselves.
But then one of them got a recording contract for being so friggin bad!!!!
I am not a scrooge, for I appreciate the individual efforts of those who seek fame and fortune via America Idol. And I am in complete agreement with this year's winner. (Although I think the Cindy-Lauperish girl deserved to be runner-up.) The other finalists are, at best, "very good singers." None of them convey the power, range, and emotion of the true "idols" they all so eagerly imitate.
The vast majority of American Idol finalists (regardless of the year) are mediocre-to-good impersonators. They lack musicality, soul, and vocal depth.
The most disgusting thing about this show is that it equates mediocrity with "greatness." These judges (the so-called experts) often fawn over mediocre performances, and act as though they were the most amazing spectacles they've ever witnessed (except for Simon, who obviously plays the role of Devil's Advocate).
Indeed, the very premise of American Idol (mimicking undeniably great musicians like Steven Tyler and Elton John) demonstrates the show's greatest irony--idolizing those who clearly pale in comparison to the musicians they poorly imitate. For those of you who have never heard the actual versions of these songs, take a listen and compare.
Can anybody honestly declare that this year's finalists are as talented as Steven Tyler, Elton John, Robert Plant, Paul McCartney, Ozzy Osbourne, John Lennon, Aretha Franklin, Dave Matthews, etc.?
While this year's winner will likely evolve into an excellent musician, he and the others will probably do nothing more than produce Record Executive-inspired, cookie-cutter pop/rock/country tunes that sound exactly like everything else these days. And the brainwashed culture will, of course, gobble it up like hot cakes. American Idol is warping the minds of the younger generations (those who do not remember pre-cookie-cutter culture). All of the bands in the 70s sounded different--they were all respecatble musicians, and all had a truly original sound.
American Idol dumbs down culture, and brainwashes the younger generation to worship mediocrity. Why? Because the worship of mediocrity breeds stupidity, and a stupid populace is very, very controllable.
American Idol used to be really good, i liked it until season 8. I don't understand why they needed to add an extra judge... She doesn't even make a great contribution... but still, what i hate hate HATE about this season is that it's more about the drama than the singing, I know that the producers think that drama is better to boost the show's ratings, but seriously? there's such a thing as too much drama, such as Tatiana or that guy who always cries. from the top 36 they automatically went to the to 12 with only 3 episodes of real singing. Many of my favorite singers were cut out because instead of 2 people leaving per episode, 3 people made it to the final 12 which really is aggravating.
I have been a long time fan of Idol. Year in and out it's something We look forward to. DVR and have a family night discussing each performance and genuinely falling in love with a couple contestants each year.
This years talent is subpar. Judges have been awful. Keith Urban is way to nice and cares far to much about people liking him and not hurting feelings, how can they be great if youbhurt their feelings Keith? Mariah is very much like Keith (steven tyler) as well she often seems like shes on some prescription pills and is alerted to speak, they do not hold people to high standards and its transparent and a huge turn off. I honestly don't really mind Nicki she's at the very least out spoken and aggressive something this coddling snuggleville group of judges need. While I don't always agree with her I understand the need for her personality type on this show. Randy gonna randy.
Talent is abysmal. They honestly couldn't find one male who had talent? It's dreadful to watch this lineup of people. I spent a winter in Bulgaria last fall and they debuted their Bulgarian X factor that awful show had as much talent. Get it together Idol or you will lose loyal fans to The Voice.
American Idol was once a great show that I liked to watch, but now it's lost it's substance.
It's not Fun to Watch anymore, and it's become so dull that the only part I like to see is at the beginning because of some of the people that dress up in quirky costumes and uniforms and getting the judges reactions. The winners never even get it big in the music industry anymore...as if they just wanted to win for their 15 minutes of fame. The show has about reached it's time. Cut it. - a n d e r s o n 5 8 7
Jordin can break the rules and keep on going.She used a Barbara S song out of place.Then on the Charity Show she had the lowest number of votes. She should have went home that night, since then all finalist have been cheated by her.Send her home its wrong
Jordin can break the rules and keep on going. She used a Barbara S song out of place. Then on the Charity Show she had the lowest number of votes. She should have went home that night, since then all finalist have been cheated by her. Send her home, its wrong. What if it had been one of the other girls that got the lowest votes would they have waited til the next night? I think not! If they weren't going to send someone home they shouldn't have told the number of votes. By announcing the lowest votes and adding the next nights votes to that to get the people that were leaving they gave the person with the lowest votes, namely Jordin, a chance to do something about it. Did any of the other contestants get that chance? NO! We have watched American Idol for the past 5 years and really enjoyed it, but I have decided I won't be watching it anymore. I can hear the outcome on the news, I don't have to waste 3 hours a week of my time to watch cheating and rule breaking. We teach our children to obey, to respect adults, not tell lies, don't break the rules, PLAY NICE, and then we sit down as a family to watch a show to see young Americans that want a career as a singer, and yet the youngest one breaks the rules and even a 9 year old notices that it's not right and asks how did that happen? Jordin is by far not one of the best singers all the other finalist are better than she has ever been, and that one can give her some competition in the hairdo category. She really needs to step down and apologize to the other finalist. Bring the others back that left since the Charity Show, send Jordin home re-count the votes and do this by the rules. What's the use in having rules if they are not for everyone
I am so tired of seeing horrible people, looking for 5 minutes of fame on this show! Yes, I understand that if it was just good audition after good audition then it wouldnt be very interesting. But seriously, it's gone over board! I predict that if things do not start changing, American Idol will go down hill, and NOT be able to save itself. 'm going to continue to watch American Idol, I hope it gets better as the season continues. By the way, Simon is getting to become ridiculous, and VERY rude..... Its obnoxious. That is my opinion.
I dont know why everybody is being so hard on the Judges.Do you think you can do a better job i doubt it.I think there great.and fare.besides we are the ones doing most of the voting.So lighten up they know the music business better than we do.
