    We get it, th ratings were low this season, no need to keep reporting it.

    Thanks to the true professionalism of Mariah and Minaj -NOT! Idiots.

    Well they didn’t need to bring Nicki Minaj to the show… and of course Mariah… Nicki was really rude and unprofessional and Mariah was so bored… And of course they were fighting during the whole season. Nobody wants to watch these two fighting all the time. This show is nothing without Simon. I love Keith Urban he was the most interesting thing to see in the show but he couldn’t do everything to save the show.

    Main reason: NIcki whatever its name is. I was an idol fan for many years and tuned in only for the first episode this season. turned off half way through and never looked back all because of Minaj.

    she was painful to watch! Idol has not been the same since it was Simon,Randy and Paula. when the show was ya know mostly about the talent, not the judges. Idol thought they had a new way to go about things (make the judges more interesting) and look; its backfired on them! they lost their loyal fanbase because of that IMO.

    Love love love Nicki Minaj. The ratings were not low because of her. You have to be an idiot to think that.

    Idol is the whipping boy. Why don’t you report that Survivor, Dancing with the Stars and The Voice ratings are down too? Xfactor ratings are down too. Why just the attack from the press on American Idol? 12 seasons is a long time to be on tv plus Nicki Manaj chased away the viewers.

  • Oh Yeah!!!

    Loved Mariah’s performance!

  • Simone

    Nicki was the final nail in the coffin .
