now this show is gonna be all about the judges when it should be about the singers. The judges should be music execs who have seen and managed, signed and developed artists. Why can’t a famous A &R person be a judge? Why is it about has -been singers being judges?

Um, didn’t we know this already? She got fired.

AI is a joke in the record business because its not the record business its REALITY TV.

The show had to buy out Kelly Clarkson’s previous management contest, and they also had to do this to several others to the tune of hundreds of thousands of dollars each. IT IS NOT A AMATEUR TALENT CONTEST. Many of the contestants you see are chosen because of and already known within the music industry.

FACT THAT THEY DON’T WANT THE PUBLIC TO KNOW. In fact one girl that made the top 15 or so had already been showcased to Cowell at RCA in London the previous year.

lol. she was the worst most embarrassing judge ever so good.
btw, this show died last year.

American Idol should just stop

poor randi is left all by himself!
