    Can that bish with the neon wig smile like a normal person would?


    I can’t imagine her having enough brain to make it the whole season.

    I can’t wait to see someone try to sing a Mariah song.

    Keith Urban is Hot Hot Hot! I will watch to see him. I like Mariah and don’t have a problem with Nicki either. But the main focus should be on the contestants.

  • leelee

    This season is going to be such a trainwreck. Can’t wait.

  • anon

    If they want ratings..there should be a wig snatching episode. Other than that..everyone is looking to youtube for talent. not American Idol.

  • Kane

    Not crazy about Nicki but willing to give this season a chance.

  • vanessa

  • Nightwish

    Nicki’s cameltoe is the best part of the pic LOL

  • escapizm

    I don’t really care about any of these people and the 5th season (w/ Chris Daughtry) was the last that I watched from beginning to end. Now I only watch for the hilarious/embarrassing first round auditions. I think the ratings are going to be horrible this season but FOX is going to bleed this thing dry. I wish they would have kept Firefly on for half the time they kept this show around.

    Mariah, my queen! She looks amazing. Only tuning in to this show for her and Keith Urban. The rest are useless.

    @Maura: I can’t wait either to watch Keith, THE MAN, Urban on Idol….his comments will mean the most to me….and I hope the entire country (that doesn’t already know this talented generous spirited man will now get to know him…and I hope they allow him to play his music during the season….love Randy and Mariah too, Niki I don’t know…Hope she is a little more serious than she appears…Here’s to the best season ever…
