Drove me nuts last year without Paula on idol. Her, and Simon have this chemistry together that is truly fun to watch. I could tell Simon wasn't enjoying being there any more with the new judges(Ellen, and Tara). The new Judges this year, and Randy have kept idol entertaining, but just still not the same. Thank You X Factor!

BORING! Like the world needs another stupid talent show. This tired, over-used ship is sailing.
