    The previous review said it all. It has become a sideshow. The judges sit and laugh at the talent and then vote in the worst of the guys to go on. What are they doing? I am so upset with their choices. Please try and fix it before it's to late.
  • I am done with Idol

    Political correctness gets an A. Talent gets an F. The judges repeatedly state this is a vocal competition - if so, why can't anyone carry a tune? Angela Miller's you set me free performance is an isolated stand out. Other than that, this year is a total flop. There isn't enough make up in the world. To make the pseudo-men look like the women they strive to be. Re-name the show American female vs American she-male and you may have a hit on . As a gay man I am ashamed of American Idol.moreless
