American Idol Comments (You must Login to Comment)

1 If I had to pick the one thing that produced more smartf***s than ever before, and was the largest disgrace to America, this is the one right here. Millions are in serious hunger, starvation, and debt worldwide while smartf***s like a few of the winners and the judges only care about themselves. They will get what's coming to them. -- Submitted By: (ProfessorBone) on November 3, 2013, 8:23 pm - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
2 I think it's time for American Idol and all related content to come to a halt finally. How can people still watch these shows? -- Submitted By: (Jp) on May 17, 2013, 9:28 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Beiber?!? Maybe if it was pre-teen idol. That's going to go over well. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on May 12, 2013, 11:52 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 They've axed all the judges (Seacrest won't return either), and will replace them, as part of the 'overhaul' Fox plans on giving this show after the current season. Among the 'dream team' of new judges? Selena Gomez, Justin Beiber, Pink and P. Diddy! Diddy and maybe Pink I can understand, but Selena and Beiber??! This show had a good run, just let it rest in piece! -- Submitted By: (stryker73) on May 10, 2013, 9:24 am - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
5 This is the first year I refused to watch American Idol, mainly because of Nikki. Is she ever annoying. The way she speaks is like nails on a chalk board. Also, I got tired of the same old theme nights. There is always a Motown/Stevie Wonder week and invarably someone does "For Once In My Life," or "Higher Ground" done RHCP style. As I said in my previous post, this show has overstayed its welcome. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on March 28, 2013, 11:52 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 I think AI has overstayed its welcome. These days, it's more about the judges than the actual contestants. Nikki Minaj as a judge? What were they thinking? -- Submitted By: (JayD) on September 19, 2012, 1:13 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
7 There are a lot of good reasons listed for this show boning but the very first time it boned was when Kara showed up. Before that they had three distinct judges so there couldn't be a tie. Why add a fourth which gave them a possible 2 - 2 split. Kara was annoying and the show was never the same after she showed up. -- Submitted By: (JoeBagODonuts) on March 17, 2012, 6:33 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
8 Soggy9000, the show is no more horrid that anything Hanna-Barbera made in the 70s or 80s. NO different than the crap music that started appearing thirtyyears ago. And you never heard the saying, apparently, honey draws flies better than vinegar. Plus I have cousins who work on the show and enjoy it. Nyeah.

9 It's a singing contest yet they often have talentless hacks like Ke$ha perform during the results show. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on January 6, 2012, 12:03 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
10 HEY!!! I just noticed the post I made about people not needing any talent to become famous these days and the post agreeing with me both got -1 vote!!! What's up with that?! >:-( -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on August 30, 2011, 7:31 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
11 This show is one of those shows I just never understand what is so popular about it. Most of the winners are just there for their 15 minutes of fame and don't even stay on top of the music charts for very long. The only thing worth watching is the pre-season auditions when the judges are putting down some of the people who really deserve it. Other than that this show is boring, Boring, BORE-ING! And to make matters worse now we have tons of lame reality shows...about singing competitions. Yeeeesh! Good grief! -- Submitted By: (markiemark6891) on August 29, 2011, 11:35 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
12 BTW, I was using Taylor Hicks as an example of of artists that DON'T stay successful. -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on July 31, 2011, 9:25 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
13 Probably the biggest problem that I've had with singing shows like American Idol and X-Factor (the British equivalent of American Idol) is that only a few of the winners actually become consistently successful (Taylor Hicks being a prime example). -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on July 31, 2011, 8:38 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
14 These days marketable=being a good looking jerk. That's all it takes. So my original point stands. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on June 13, 2011, 8:16 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
15 Not exactly true, DolFan. It's whether the powers who wanna invest consider the hack *marketable* that's the key. Alas, there are plenty of authentically talented folks out there whom couldn't get a first look from American Idol or any other ilk. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 13, 2011, 6:49 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
16 Soggy, you could say that about the entertainment industry in general. And the sad part is, any jerk who wants to be famous is just handed it on a silver platter these days! No talent required. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on June 13, 2011, 3:40 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
17 The contestants on this horrid program don't really respect music as anything more than a tool. To them it's just a means to an end - the vehicle which will bring them the fame and wealth they lust for - rather than an end in itself. They don't have the first understanding of the concept of art for art's sake. (Apparently the judges don't either.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on June 13, 2011, 1:55 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote

19 I'm imbarassed to say i was very addicted to this show the first few seasons,but it got old very quickly.basically its the same thing every season.lots of bad singers, a few marginal ones and very good ones. its very predictable. the judges are very dull and boring, randy cant say much beyond yo dog and pitchy ,simon with his few comments and paula doesnt even know were shes at most of the times.it boned the fish for me when I found out it was staged. the worst part of the show is that the winners(and i use that term loosely) all sound the same to me. i dont care what thier age sex race or what part of the country they come from---they all sound the same. -- Submitted By: (hifijohn) on June 12, 2011, 3:08 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
20 Yeah, this show is done. At least with Simon it was cheap karaoke with great put downs. Now it's cheap karaoke with Steven Tyler and J-Lo fighting to stay relevant with their softball critics. How about we just do away with the judges, add some more zany acts and put a gong on the stage? -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on March 2, 2011, 5:12 pm - (10 votes) - Login to Vote
