    It was…now it’s back for some stupid reason. I doubt it’ll last this time though.

  • Femalefan

    It won’t because people didn’t want or ask for this show’s return.

    Why are they still doing this show. The majority of winners have gone no where. Kelly Clarkson was the BEST. And I still love her and buy her music.
