Default American Idol

It starts again on Tuesday at 8pm. It will be on for 2 hours and will come on again on Wednesday for another 2 hours. It tries to take over your life like there aren't any other shows to watch or things to do. I used to LOVE this show. The last two seasons America hasn't gotten it right. Also, I hate the first few weeks because all they do is pick on people. I usually don't really watch it until Hollywood. I am truly debating if I will watch it this season.

My favorite American Idols--Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood.

I'm looking forward to the new season. Last year though I got bored with the many, many weeks of audition shows. Most likely I'll have to change my gym times to earlier in the day to free up my evenings on Tues. and Wed. for AI. Yes, I'm hooked, LOL.

My favorite was Carrie Underwood.

I actually like the first two weeks and the last two the best. The first two cause it's the best comedy on TV, and the second because they're then down to some of the best singers and worth watching.

Yeah, they make fun of people, but it's all part of the show. And really, a lot of the people on there that they do make fun of are people that went on there knowing they were going to get made fun of. Anyone really think William Hung thought he was the best thing since sliced bread? That guy HAD to know he couldn't sing worth a spit.

Love it.

I don't enjoy the first few weeks watching the people going for their 15 minutes of fame.

Once they get to Hollywood I really get into it.

I'll watch it this year because I'll either be in hospital getting my knee replaced or at home recuperating. I really am watching Simon C. rather than the contestants!

I LOVE Simon! Paula gets on my nerves and Randy is alright. Not watching the first few weeks allows me to continue watching TBL. No I don't have Tivo.

Simon Cowell...gotta love that man.

I feel about the same as you Shay, but am hopelessly addicted to it when it starts.

Some of my favorites on AI were George Huff, Melinda Doolittle (whatever happened to this vocal wonder???), LaToya London, and Jennifer Hudson

That's what I mean when I say America got it wrong the last two seasons. Chris Daughtry--I forgot to mention that I love him and Elliott Yamin too--he should have won Season 5 and Melinda should have won Season 6. Well on to Season 7. I know Noelle I vote and everything. Because I'm still up really late I can get in there and vote a lot for my favorites.

I totally agree...it is obvious the show is rigged...if it wasn't KELLIE PICKLER would have won! That gal had everything...brains....looks....personality....talent...sad story....she had it all!

She has even added a little to her...ummm..."assets"...since the show

EZMONEY--That brings up a good point. Besides Carrie and Kelly the rest of the winners have not done that fantastic. I never really was a Fantasia Barrino fan. I didn't see what was so great about her voice. Now the ones voted off that's a whole different story. Many of them are doing well for themselves!

Omigosh we LOVE AI!! One of my twin daughters (12 years old) can't wait until it starts! As others said, the first few weeks is HYSTERICAL! Prime time couldn't ever compete with it!

When the crazy stuff goes away, the talent is awesome. We liked Gina Glockson last year - we are rock fans and she just had it as far as we were concerned. She looked exactly like our oldest son's very brief girlfriend at the time!

AND SIMON!!! Sigh - I am 52, very overweight and married for 30 years but he is OH SO GORGEOUS!!!!

Bring it on AI!! We are READY!!!

Momtofivesweeties--You are the first person that I have ever heard speak on Simon's looks.

Did anyone hear that Simon might be leaving the show? I gotta go do some research.
