Bad Omen for

'American Idol'

9/22/2010 3:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It was the buildup of the summer ... "American Idol" unveiling its new panel of judges -- Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez and Randy Jackson.  Everyone was in place.  Except for the audio guy.

American Idol New Judges
Ryan Seacrest took the stage and the whole thing went down ... and no one heard a word.

Anyone superstitious?

Thats it I'm not watching American Idol anymore. First of all I do not want to see the DIVA. When do you hear anything about Jennifer Lopez doing anything for charity?

I can see it now....major temper tantrums from JLo, and Tyler being a no show due to drug/alcohol problems..they think Randy can carry the show by himself?? Somebody's not being realistic here. I hope they give JLo and Tyler speaking lessons so people will understand them, or least give us subtitles.

Unfortunately, based on most of the comments people have made, AI has made two bad choices and I have to agree. I miss Paula and even though Simon can be harsh, he knows what he's doing. I won't be watching next season. I don't think Jlo or Steven has what it takes to draw in the audiences or do a great job in judging talent.

i think as soon as simon turns up next year with the x-factor with paula as one of the judges, it will pretty much be over for idol, just like it has been in every other contry where X has been introduced.

HoLo looks like she's wearing a wig. She just looks different and strange. Though her mouth still spouts the same dumb voice.

The reason that American Idol went back to three judges is that there will be still 4 seats for the 3 judges - Lopez's ass will be occupying two of them!!!!!
